  1. hey! soo I know i posted the question .... but I am DONE accutane now... and i found that using the "white tub" blistex worked the best! another thing that REALLLLLLLLLLY helped... was using a lip exfoliator made by "benefit" (bought at sephora).. i used it every 2 nights at first .. then eventually only once a week. it helped a lot!!!!! it's called "kiss me" ( i think?) .. and it's in a little pink lipgloss tube with a black lid. i found vaseline and caramex only dried me out more !
  2. Hey! Just thought I would share my accutane story... I started on 40m a day for about 2months, then went up to 60 for 5 months. the BIG problem i had was with my Kidneys!!!... my lower back started to KILL me. it was horrible. at first i thought it was from work (I am a personal trainer), but then my blood tests revealed that it was in fact my kidneys.

  8. Hello! I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of a good lip balm or moisturizer? I have been on accutane for just over 2 weeks now, and my lips are drying out like CRAZY!
