  1. i'm very pissed off, but i'm trying to stay cool. let's see if anyone from customer service responds to this thread
  2. cetaphil cream @ bedtime = no more flakes
  3. complex 15 lotion is non-greasy and doesn't leave a shine.
  4. seems like an acne nodule or cyst. a derm doc could give you a corticosteroid injection which would heal it in a few days.
  5. i use about 1 tube of bp per month on the full dosage (face & neck).
  6. you might need to stop for a few days, then start over more slowly.
  7. have you tried dan's regimen? http://www.acne.org/regimen.html
  8. not true. i've been able to control my cystic acne with bp and sa. see "my dkr log" link in my sig for more info. are you sure they were cysts, and not just big papules? cysts are basically impossible to treat topically. i've been diagnosed with cystic acne by a number of dermatologists. so, i'm certain that i have it. cystic acne will develop on my skin if it's left untreated. cystic acne isn't impossible to treat topically, but it's difficult to get under control with topica

  12. dry skin results from a lack of sebum, not water. furthermore, it's a proven fact that jojoba oil doesn't clog pores.
  13. my understanding is that bp absorbs into dry skin better than wet skin. bp doesn't like water, so it tends to evaporate on wet skin.
  14. you might want to try purpose redness reducing moisturizer: http://www.purposeskincare.com/productGuideRR.shtml good luck!
