  1. cetaphil skin cleanser nivea creme around eyes (might be too oily for other areas) RoC enydrial lipbalm - this is a lifesaver avene cold cream hand cream (I also use it on areas if my face is very dry) thebalm timebalm - great concealer
  2. I can't believe no one seems to have any issues with broken caps.... am I the only one?
  3. So I have been getting a few red lines in my nose crease etc., but today I noticed a huge red mark just under where my frown lines are... it was not there in the morning:(( I'm trying to cover it with concealer, but I guess I will have to have to use laser after ending my accutane treatment. It really sucks. I'm just wondering how common these broken capillaries are for accutane users and if there is anything I can do to prevent/fade the marks? I would really appreciate any advice:)
  4. Day 89, So things are not so good these days. My forehead broke out the other day and the blackheads on my nose decided to come back with a vengeance.. most of them are slightly raised and look awful. I even have a pimple on my nose:( I'm trying not to focus too much on my skin, but it's really hard when it's looking this bad. I'm tempted to squeeze out all the blackheads, but I'm trying not to. I really wish they would go away by the end of this month - or I could just go as pizza face for h
  5. Day 81, I can't believe it has almost been three months.... and my skin is looking pretty good if I may say so myself:P I did switch to acnotin which is the same as accutane, only cheaper. I buy it from the local skin clinic, and they give me a discount when I buy in bulk:P It is strange how pharmacies here are not allowed to sell isotretinoin, while skin clinics can sell them over the counter. No questions asked. About a month ago I decided to stop picking at my skin. I was always squeezing o
  6. Day 45 I wish I could stay on accutane forever... my skin is looking goooood:P Went to buy new glasses today, and I was able to look about myself properly in the store mirror without turning away after 2 seconds. I have never, ever been able to do this. And I was just wearing minimal makeup. Ive got 20 more days of tablets, then I have to go back to the derm. I think I want to do another 2 months on 20mg/day and then go down to 10mg/day. I still have blackheads on my nose and forehead that I'm
  7. Day 42 Face is dry again, and my nose is once again covered in blackheads. But this time I'm going to see if they will come out on their own so I will have to keep my fingers off my face. There are a couple of plugs that have surfaced already, so I am really hoping that the end of the blackheads era is near.
  8. shiseido spf55+ lotion is my favourite. It works well as a primer, and keeps your face shine-free. It's a little pricey, but sooo worth it. I've used up several bottles of this. And it does not break me out (just make sure to get the lotion and not the cream).
  9. This is confusing. Now my skin is dry again (and so is my hair). I can't believe how quickly it went from oily to dry. Now let's just hope it stays this way:)
  10. Thanks for that explanation, Lora:) But I was just getting used to not having to wash my hair every morning:P
  11. I woke up with 4 new pimples this morning, so I'm pretty sure it hasn't stopped working. Will be interesting to see how long it takes before my skin goes dry again. And Idontknowrly - enjoy your first day of school:)))
  12. I'm glad I'm not alone:) When did you start to get oily again Idontknowrly? 20mg is a good dose for me and if this is just temporary I think I'll stick with it. Not sure how long I should give it though.
  13. I'm not really sure. I was on retin-a for a long time, so my skin was very dry because of that. I've read so many of the accutane logs on here, any I've never heard of this happening to anyone. My eyes are not as dry either. Perhaps the accutane is not being absorbed, is this possible?
  14. I'm 38 days into my 20mg/day course. After about 2 weeks my skin got very nice and dry. However, lately my skin has gotten oily again. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it normal?
  15. Adamklang - didn't notice much difference when bumping it up to 20mg. I just felt like 10 was not enough and that it would take forever to see any changes in my skin:P Good luck:) DB - Thank you:) Day 38 I seriously think accutane has stopped working:( My skin gets oily again and I have to wash my hair every other day. I don't know what's going on. I take it with a fatty meal and follow all the advice so I don't know what more I can do. Is it normal for the skin to go oily again a month in w
