  1. Hmm. The products by Mario I'm using at the moment don't seem to be making things worse, but I'll investigate into the ingredients. The problem with acne-fighting pills such as Yaz, Dianette and Ortho-Tri is that the combined hormones reduce the androgens in your body to reduce acne. This is a catch-22 as androgens are also responsible for the testosterone that regulates your sex drive. Libido problem is a complicated one, I'm not even in the mood for foreplay most of the time, and alcohol
  2. Hi folks, It's been a long time since I posted here my skin is so up and down! I've had clear patches, bad patches, and weird 'not sure' patches. But I've come to a stage where I am lost for solutions and it's taking over my life. I'm and obsessing over my skin more and more, so much so it's affected my relationship with my partner quite severely. I've been trying to manage my acne by taking Yasmin (or Yaz as it's often known) for about 3 years. Its effectiveness is starting to wear off
  3. I use a MAC one in a tiny black pot. It's awesome, and a little goes a long way.
  4. I just wanted to declare that I am LOVING Vichy's brilliant treatment cream - this stuff http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=...ed=0CFMQ8wIwAw# But it's so expensive But literally, overnight success like never before. Has anyone else tried anything from this line? xox
  5. I know how you feel. Sometimes dietry changes just arent enough for everyone! The only thing that works on my skin is Duac which is a BP and Clindamycin overnight gel. Used to dry out my skin at first now its fine. I recently forked out for a Dermalogica facewash called daily microfoliant. I've been using it alongside the duac and it's clearing up my reacurring acne a treat. Also recently just found out sweet potatoes are super high in vitamin A which is awesome for the skin, i recommend ge
  6. I dont know about you guys over the pond but in Boots here in the UK there's a makeup section by a makeup artist called charlotte tilbury. They do a concealer called mycover - a little pricey at £7.99 but its proving to be a really worthwhile purchase! I tend to blend in a bluey green concealer underneath red marks then apply this and my blemishes are barely noticeable
  7. I know it's expensive in the US and i'm an employee/veteran for Lush - but seriously the only thing that leaves my skin clean and free of any makeup trace is Ultrabland. Melt/smear it over your face, wipe off with damp cotton wool. Easy and suuuper gentle and a little goes a loooong way
  8. I'm having amazing results with Grease Lightning spot gel from Lush. Ingredients: Thyme; Rosemary and Tea Tree Infusion (Thymus vulgaris; Rosmarinus officinalis and Melaleuca alternifolia), Organic Aloe Vera Gel (Aloe barbadensis), Sea Water, Grape Juice (Vitis vinifera), Lavender Oil (Lavandula angustifolia), Witch Hazel Extract (Hamamelis virginiana), *Limonene, Perfume, Methylparaben * Occurs naturally in Essential Oils I smear a layer over the area overnight, it's kicking some serious ass
  9. Ah I had this issue a while ago, left a massive scab on my face i thought it would never heal! I tried TCP ointment from a pharmacy, it stung a lil bit when the wound was wet/open, so i had to let it dry out..then yellow colour helped tone down the redness. I also tried savlon, didnt help a lot. THEN I tried Dream Cream from Lush. I work there so i could talk all day long about our products but didnt think DC would work on my face! Do yourself a favour - get to a local shop, ask for a free sa
  10. Everyone raves on about how Paula's choice BHA is awesome, yet in the Uk i'm thinking it might be kinda pricey to get hold of the stuff. Can anyone recommend a UK based equivalent to help us lot over the pond out? thanks!
  11. Haha it is pretty silly.. mmm, grease! We're such a subtle company ha. Jokes aside, my skin looks a lot better today than it did yesterday, i've done a couple of Cosmetic Warrior masks (kaolin, honey, eggs, garlic, tea tree, grapes) and the combination has helped my skin heal up nicely from a stupid episode of skin picking.
  12. Forgive me if i'm being biased as I do work for Lush... but i've just got pretty excited at the new spot gel that just came out very recently in the UK. It's called Grease Lightning, here are the ingredients: Thyme, Rosemary and Tea Tree Infusion (Thymus vulgaris; Rosmarinus officinalis and Melaleuca alternifolia), Organic Aloe Vera Gel (Aloe barbadensis), Sea Water, Grape Juice (Vitis vinifera), Lavender Oil (Lavandula augustifolia), Witch Hazel Extract I've used it to heal spots that i've t
  13. Duac cleared up my blackheads. I really need some more of the stuff i've not used it in ages. I think its cos it sucked up all the oil that builds up into forming blackheads. Give it a go!
  14. yeh i've been trying to track a plant down! since i posted this its been healing up steadily, using ACV toner after washing my face, Skin Nanny cream or TCP ointment and 2 nights with breathable bandaids. i'll put a picture up in the morning! phew!
  15. Vanishing Cream from Lush super gentle, yet anti-bacterial and extremely light. Love the stuff.
