  1. So I've been on roaccutane for 3 months now, about to go into my 4th month. After 2 and a half months I was noticing progress - my chin and nose area were clearing with just a few small whiteheads and cysts on my cheeks. I was so excited, thinking this is the turnaround point and it's only up from here. However, the last 2 weeks have been awful. My face has just exploded in cysts on my chin and around my nose. Only my cheeks seem to have started clearing up and that's the only progress I've
  2. It's been a few weeks since I last updated this blog, so be prepared for a long one! Right now, without hopefully jinxing it, I have no actives on my face!! It's by no means clear however, unfortunately still some quite persistent lumps from previous spots that just won't go down . I also have A LOT of hyperpigmentation and a few scars so definitely not looking clear by any means. But I honestly can't believe this right now, after just 4 weeks I've reached a point where I am going a good few
  3. So today I took my 8th 20mg roaccutane tablet. And after 8 days, I have noticed...nothing. No dryness, no aches or pains, no anything. (However I have had slightly dry lips but I'm attributing it to hay fever as it has been SO bad and my body is fully stocked up on antihistamine, yet I still can't breathe properly and want to pull my eyeballs out of my head - can anyone else relate? hahah) The first 3-4 days my skin cleared slightly, which I believe was just mere coincidence. However, days
  4. Hi, I'm just after taking my 8th tablet, and being totally honest, I have noticed nothing so far, no side effects I can attribute to roaccutane anyway. So I can't really comment on anything about scrubs. I have however been really moisturising my skin for the last 3 weeks so perhaps my preparation has meant I'm doing ok so far in terms of dryness. I've been using the Clinique moisture surge serum and moisturiser and they seem to be doing well so far. Hope that helps, and good luck with the exams
  5. Hi all, It's been quite a while since I last posted; back then I was planning on beginning roaccutane within that following week, but for some unforeseen reasons that did not happen. As I mentioned previously I am undertaking private treatment in the UK. This process has really allowed me to fully appreciate the NHS as I found out a private blood test would set me back £490. So, in the end, I went to my university GP and I'm now having my blood tests under the NHS. However I am still visit
  6. Today is the day I've made the decision to go on Roaccutane. I'm incredibly apprehensive about what I'm about to embark on over the next however many months. It probably doesn't help that I have uni exams in 2 weeks that are already stressing me out. I've included an incredibly long, detailed account of my acne in the About section above, if anyone wants to know what I have used up to this point to tackle my acne. But as I said it is very long, just as a disclaimer. I should probably add t
