  1. Hi love, sorry to reply late. So what I think is the real solution for these clogged pores is actually getting them extracted. Go to a good esthetician and have her do extractions on you. after that, you can MAINTAIN your skin using the mandelic acid. The acid is great for maintenance but it does not remove them on its own. They MUST get extracted.
  2. yes, I am 99% clear from comedones/clogged pores.
  3. Hi everyone Female: 22yrs I need help. I saw 2 dermatologists and none of them was able to solve this issue for me. So I was on Tretinion gel 0.5 for some clogged pores on my cheeks. After 5 month of painful purging, I stopped using the gel because my clogged pores were purging in painful cystic acne, in which I NEVER had before. By the time I stopped using the gel, almost all my clogged pores had already purged but now I’m stuck with something that bothers me even more than the actual

  5. I used tretinoin for this same problem, clogged pores. It actually made me purge them in painful cystic acne which seriously damaged my skin. So stay away from that stuff as the way it purges is crazy and more visible than the actual comedone. You don't need to go to a doctor office to get extractions, that will cast u a fortune. You can go to any esthetician that has experience and get extrations. Look up for one online that is near you. And like I said you need to use AHA acids on the skin aft
  6. Yes, they are clogged pores (comedones). They sit under the skin and take forever to purge. Acids like mandalic and glycolic help a lot like ImTheTinMan said. But first you must get the extracted by a professional. The acids are great at maintaining clean pores but first you must get them extracted then use acids to maintain them. I used and tried everything and thats what worked for me. Good luck
  7. Yes I think acids like Mandalic and glycolic are fantastic. But first u must go and get extractions. This is the best way believe me, I had them and suffered to get rid of them. Nothing helped but getting them extracted then using acids to maintain non clogged pores.
  8. Hi Jessie, thank you so much for your comment. So tretionin was the worst thing that a dermatology ever put me on. If I tell you, you will never believe the pain I went through. Every single one of the comedones purged into inflammed cystic painfull acne. I had to stop it at 4 month because it ruined my skin. I wish you commented earlier and I wish that I actually got them extracted instead of going through all this pain. Thankfully today its much better and although im suffering from lumps that
  9. I have been using it for 6 days now and yes alcohol works as a vehicle for the mandelic acid to help it better penetrate the skin. I have been on tretionin for exactly 3 month and yes I use it once a day everyday 0.05% gel form.I have been using it for 6 days now and yes alcohol works as a vehicle for the mandelic acid to help it better penetrate the skin.

  10. Hey there how are you, im still using the product.. so far I haven't seen any improvement with the comedones. I feel like althought the product has 5% mandelic acid, it also has a lot of alcohol which dries out my skin a little. I'm of course more dry than anyone else because im on tretionin and benzoyl peroxide. I will keep using it though and I do have hope that it will clear my comedones.. My left cheeks however is suffering from the use of tretionin, its looks to me as if its pitted or begin
  11. Hey so there is no instructions on this bottle or in the box, is there any specific instructions on how you use it and when? I still wana keep using the tretionin just so I can give it it's fair round.
  12. I just received the bottle. Will be trying it today.
  13. Still waiting to receive the item.. it should come tomorrow.. I will post on here when it comes and start using it immediately.
  14. The inflamed picture is the left cheek and the right cheek is the .. this is update while on 12 weeks of tretionin gel 0.05 to treat black/whiteheads or comedonal acne.
  15. Ok thank you so so much.. I will update you on what happens
  16. Thats so great to hear.. I will give it a try and let you know any updates .. thank you so much for helping people around with this same problem. Can i just ask you this.. how long after taking like a day or two off of the toner does the comedones come back or reappear. Do you feel like it pops out immediately after skipping like one day. im asking this because I have tried something recently that makes the comedones disapear for a day or two then it shows on the third day in the same place it w
  17. My comedones purged but after the purge was over the comedones return to being the old comedones that was in the first place. I'm wondering how this is supposed to help with comedonal acne. I will post a picture later today of my skin right now, I have like a whole cheek of inflamed tiny and pimples that take so much longer than usual to heal. And of course you can't pop those pimples even if they have a whitehead because if you do while on tretinoin you can scar your face. I'm just upset at m
  18. I purchased it right away.. I just have very stubborn skin, my skin is not oily its combination and something as strong as tretionin is removing those bastarts comedones.. I hate them so much and I hate how tretionin has turned my skin.. im still in the initial breakout phase of the tretionin and it has been 12 weeks.. idk how much longer to wait, I just feel like tretionin is not made for this type of acne.. for how long did you stay on tretionin and did it purge your comedones like its doing t
  19. I use the mandelic acid from Makeup Artist's Choice and this thing eliminates AND prevents acne from forming because it cleans out my pores so much. It's pretty much the only thing I need in my entire skincare regimen to keep me free from acne. I do not have before pictures because I avoided cameras when my skin looked like the topographical view of Afghanistan. Believe me, my skin was much bumpier than yours. is that it??? After how long should I expect to see results.. tretionin they tel
  20. Tretinoin didn't work for me either. I use a 5% mandelic acid toner to keep myself free from blackheads and comedones. It's amazing, trust me. No initial breakouts either, it just gets the job done. OMG really!!! I will give it a try for sure but let me ask you first did the mandelic acid get rid of the once already on the skin or did it just prevent new once from coming in??? Also please tell me the brand you used of the mandelic acid? I have looked so much online and I am not finding any m
  21. Ok thank you Goldenoval I will do the clay mask like you suggested also I have been using cetephil cleanser for a very long time.. do you think thats what caused this comodonal acne?? And what other cleansers do you suggest to use while on Tretionin gel? What brand of mandelic acid did you exactly use and the percentage??? So far im on 10 weeks of tretionin and no improvement.. just my initial break out still going and the acne after inflaming its coming back to the small comodone it was befo
  22. I feel like Tretinoin gel is somewhat working in bringing them to the surface but my main problem is that after the inflammation and redness are gone I'm stuck with a painless pump sitting under the skin... I don't know what that is and what to do to for them. I have like seven of those on my skin. and I can feel them more than seeing them. My doctor injected them with mild steroids and said that the next day they should go away but they only got a little smaller and did not completely go away.
