  1. It looks like the Vivant Mandelic Acid 15% w/alcohol was discontinued. It worked great for my blackheads and did not irritate my skin.

  2. I visited my dermatologist today and asked if I had flat warts and he said that I have seborrheic keratosis, which is not the same thing.

  6. I have been reading some posts, and I wonder if I need to spot treat areas of my face. Benzoyl Peroxide only on my chin where I get the hard cysts and Paula's Choice BHA and AHA on the rest of my face where I get blackheads on my nose and clogged pores on my cheeks. I'm also interested in the Mandelic acid from Garden of Wisdom. Not sure how that would fit into my regimen. I prefer organic cleansers and I'm not sure what to use. I really like this Purist Naturals cleanser and moisturiser I
  7. Hi, I have been reading here but am not sure what to do, it all seems overwhelming. I am 48 years old. I have had acne for about 33 years. In my 20's very bad, and at times in my 30's very bad. Had 2 rounds of Accutane but still have occasional hard cysts on my chin. Lots of blackheads on my nose. An alarming number of clogged pores on my cheeks. My derm has prescribed Benzaclin, Metrogel 0.75 and Rosula cleanser. For the past 2-3 months my skin has been flaking and irritated. When I b
