  1. Hi everyone, I am thinking of going on Spiro but I'm scared. I have super oily skin. I have to use those oil blotting sheets every hour or so, that is the only way I can keep the oil under control. I also have an oily scalp and have to wash my hair every day. I was hoping spiro would help get that under control but I am so nervous about all the terrible side effects I have read about. I'm using 3% differin which I have been on for 4 years and acanya gel for the past few months. I am s
  2. I was not terribly impressed. It's didn't do anything bad to my face, but nothing great either.
  3. No, you don't need the setting powder. It doesn't do anything in my opinion
  4. I am not sure about waxing, the problem being that the hair has to be at least 1/4 inch long before the wax takes hold. Nair is a good product as long as it doesn't irritate your skin. My husband tweezes his chest hair. He just pulls out a few each morning, they don't all grow at the same rate, so he is not tweezing hundreds of hair at a time. Sounds weird, but it works
  5. I wouldn't waste your money. The active ingredient is sulphur, and if you want to try that you could find it in products that are a lot cheaper. Personally, I never had any luck with sulphur and it SMELLS!
  6. Mineral makeup is supposed to be better for your skin. I like Bare Minerals and did notice some improvement in my skin once I stopped using liquid foundation. A lot of people on this board will recommend Everyday Minerals, but I have not tried that one.
  7. I don't think you need to worry about a brand. The most important thing is finding the right color to match your skin. If the color is off, people will be able to tell. I would recommend a kit with different colors of concealer so you can try different shades out and find something that works for you. Also, you can blend two colors to get a better shade. And most can be bought online. a few ideas... http://www.mallatts.com/commerce/catalog.jsp?catId=70 http://www.amazon.com/Judith-August
  8. Gosh, I thought I was the only one with this problem. I hate having to wash my hair every day, because then it takes so long to dry it and style it before work in the morning. I wish that I only had to wash a few times a week. I had always felt not normal for washing every day, but I have to, otherwise my hair is limp and lifeless and stringy. The only thing is I have colored hair. So washing every day makes the color fade and then I have to get it colored more often, and now my hair is get
  9. I actually noticed a lot of improvement from 10 weeks to 12. You should give it 12 full weeks before you decide not to use it anymore. It's really a great product, but it works SLOWLY.
  10. Hey, so I am clear after 12 weeks of Differin, but I still have some lingering blackheads. The blackheads are reduced by 80% from when I started using differin so that was huge improvement. I have some of those Biore pore strips that I used all the time before starting the differin. I really want to use one, but am not sure. Has anyone tried this? My skin is not sensitive and I am fully adjusted to the differin. Can anyone tell me from personal experience if it's okay or if something bad h
  11. They work better if you do it right after a nice, hot shower or steaming. Also, it makes my face red for a couple of hours, so I try to do it before bed.
  12. Glycolic acid, mandelic acid, AHA or BHA. One of those is what you need.
  13. First off, I recommend using Dermablend Leg Cover. (Not the regular dermablend makeup for face). It is creamy, but applies with nice good coverage. I did not have much trouble matching the skin tone, because I am very pale, so I just used the lightest color. But...I bought it from the Ulta store which has sample tubes out in every color so you can try it out before buying. Perhaps you have a similar store in your area? My stretch marks are silvery-white (not red) and therefore pretty eas
  14. The retin A and aloe vera are helping the red marks. The clindamycin is controlling bacteria, so not helping the red marks, other than by controlling new ones. I'm not sure that you should change anything, actually. Retin A is exfoliating layers of skin, so there is nothing more to add other than time.
