  1. I've been using Dan's BP for over two years (it will be three years this summer), and I've never had a problem. I've never even had to think about contacting customer service. I only use the BP, I used to use his full regimen by it was too expensive for me, and the main thing I need is the BP. I use Cetaphil for my face wash and moisturizer (when I need one). Like someone mentioned earlier, I would show your parents the site, and maybe contact Dan/customer service about their concerns. It could
  2. I used it for the first time today, and I liked it. But I intend to only use the product once a week for deep cleaning because it removed a lot of dirt and skin cells that I think my cleanser and toner leave behind. First, I rubbed a small amount of the Pond's cold cream onto my face and neck, and let it sit for about 2 or 3 minutes. Then I rubbed it off with cotton circles. I know it says you can stop there, but it felt too heavy for me; so, I used my facial wash (Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanse
  3. I like the moisturizer called CeraVe. I've only used it for about a week, but it's really nice. It doesn't make you oily and it really moisturizes really well. You can get it on drugstore.com. It has rave reviews on this site and that site. And if you need extra moisturizing, try adding some jojoba oil in. Although, I didn't like it when I did because it made my skin too shiny, but it may work for you. Try with just the CeraVe first. It's a relatively big bottle, and only a little is needed (abo
  4. Most organic foods are supposed to be good for you, and be beneficial for your body as a whole. Wheat germ is supposed to be good for you. But I would steer clear of anything approved by the USDA, or if it is approved by the USDA make sure it is approved by someone other than just the USDA. The USDA is extremely screwy, and doesn't give a hoot about anyone or anything besides making money.
  5. I just got finished reading the book Skinny Bitch, and it has definetly convinced me to become a vegan. I know it may be hard, but you can't think of it as giving something up, just subsituting one thing for something healthier. And don't be negative about it, don't continue to say I can't give up milk, or it is going to be to hard to give up milk, or it's going to be so hard to give up milk. Speak it into existence. I gave up milk, I don't eat dairy products, ect. But I would go totally organi
  6. Thanks guys, I won't put any money into the product. I really appreciate the great advice.
  7. I don't know about the oiliness. When I was first using the proactiv my skin was very dry. But after my skin got used to it returned to being combination. But it did clear my skin for a few years, but then it just stopped working. But I don't know if it's a good idea to put rubbing alcohol of the face, especially straight. I think it may be too harsh, and may cause the skin to produce more oil, than it did before.
  8. Some bumps do get painful. But I've decided to just use the Acnexus as a skin exfoliant, for like my hands and feet (summer is here), or maybe even a complete body scrub, who knows, don't want to waste my money. But right now, I'm washing with the Aveeno, and then soaking my face in warm to a bit hotter than warm water for 60 seconds. I just ordered the Paula's Choice samples today, so I'm going to try it out when it gets here. It should be here by the end of June, early July. I'll try to get
  9. I just tried it, so I don't know what's happened yet. I am still going to order the samples from Paula's Choice, and try that out as well. But it has been my experience with water and body parts in general that if you let it air dry the skin will be smoother and not dry. If you think about when you use the automated hand dryers in the bathrooms at malls. So what I did was I soaked, and then gently dabbed (barely touching my face) off the excess water that would drip onto my shirt. But I still
  10. What about pH's in the 3s. Like I know some of Paula's Choice BHA treatments have like 3.2 or 3.4 pH balances. Is this good? Bad?
  11. The reason why you aren't supposed to pop is because popping causes scarring. And also you should try not to touch your face as much as you can because touching your face a lot just adds more oil to your face (the oil from you finger tips and hands goes onto your face and clogs your pores). So don't pop the pimple, just wait it out. In the long run it is much better for your skin to just wait. If you go to the FAQs on Paula's Choice. They talk about what is best for each skin type. The proble
  12. And back to the Paula's Choice, what is the difference between 1% and 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid Gel (1%= pH level of 3.4, and 2%= pH level of 3.4 as well)? Or would the 2% BHA Liquid be better (it has a 3.2 pH level)? But what does the 1% and 2% stand for? Help me please. With the Blemish Fighting Solution: is the extra strength too much because it says it contains 5% BP. Would regular strength be better because it only contains 2.5%? And I know that Snow Queen said that 2.5% should be the highest
  13. What is the difference between BHA and AHA? I've seen these terms a lot, and I don't really understand what they mean. And would it be best to just go ahead and use all of the Paula's Choice products. But I'm afraid of doing too much, which I know is deadly for the skin. And I know that PC has two versions for each skin type in the cleansers, toners, moisturizers, ect ect. I have normal to oily/combination skin type. Is one better than the other? For example: One Step Face Cleanser vs. Skin B
