  1. I've also been using Panoxyl 10 for about 2 weeks on my back and chest. It is definately helping some. I let the lather sit for a few minutes before rinsing. If I don't continue to see results I plan to try Grandpa's Thylox soap. I've read great reviews about it.
  2. Thanks for responding...I have noticed that my blackheads are slowly going away but I still have quite a few whiteheads. I still get a couple of actual inflamed pustules a week but that is in comparison to a couple a day. I know that honey is supposed to be antibacterial and maintaining a moist environment seems to be a lot more conducive to the healing of my skin as well.
  3. It's a cream and it's ingredients are olive oil, bees wax, honey, bee pollen, royal jelly, and bee propolis. I've been using it as a moisturizer for the past few weeks and it seems to be really improving my skin.
  4. I've been using Paula's Choice AHA for about a week. I have definately noticed a slow improvement in my blackheads and whiteheads. I have also been reading a lot about mandelic acid and am wondering how it differs from glycolic acid. They are both AHA's correct? Is one stronger or more effective. Do they work differently?
  5. Thanks! I have definitely seen some improvement, I guess I just expected more at this point. After doing some research, I have decided to add Paula's Choice 8% AHA to the mix. I've only been using it since Saturday and I can already see a significant difference. Blackheads seem to just be falling off. You would think using the retin a all this time would have already done this. Anyway, I will try to update my progress. :)

  7. I have been using retin a micro .1% for 16 weeks now. I started using it mainly for whiteheads and blackheads. About 3 weeks in my skin started breaking out quite a bit. It calmed down about a week ago but now the whiteheads and blackheads seem to be coming back. Also, now I have quite a few red marks from the breakouts. Should I quit? I can’t decide if it’s time to move on or if I should stick with it. I’ve read some posts that say it can take months but most posts I read people say they
  8. I am curious to know this as well. I've been on micro for about 14 weeks and I still have a ton of clogged pores. A lot of the whiteheads seem to have opened up and are now blackheads which seem to slowly be coming out. My skin is oilier than it has ever been in my life...it's always shiny. And I have a ton of red marks from what I believe was the initial outbreak. The breakouts have slowed in the past few weeks but I am very frustrated with the amount of whiteheads and blackheads I still have.
  9. It has now been about 14 weeks on 0.1% and I still have tiny bumps. Not nearly as many as before but they are still there. I think a lot of them have actually opened up and become blackheads, which I can literally see sticking out of my skin. I know…it’s gross. I still have a lot of red marks from the initial outbreak which I am hoping will begin to fade with continued use. Overall I think things are improving. My skin is still super sensitive but not nearly as much as it used to be. I just wond
  10. I've been using retin a micro for about 4 weeks. I started on .04% and switched to .1% about 2 weeks ago. I have used differin and tazorac (both at their lowest strengths) in the past for about 8 weeks each which after reading I am starting to believe was not long enough to see if they would actually work. My only issue really is comedonal acne. I have it all over my face...forehead, chin, cheeks...I don't know what is causing them. It started almost two years ago out of nowhere. I am 26 years o
