  1. UPDATE: I've seen definite improvement in my skin thus far. I've been using this system for almost a month and I'm actually very happy with it. The pimples on my chin and neck area are GONE. Let me repeat: GONE. I used to get 5-10 at any given time, both whiteheads and big cystic suckers but now they're nonexistent and have been for weeks. I did get one bump on my chin yesterday but I think that was because I started a new job and am moving, so the combo of stress and little sleep and forg
  2. I have the very same problem, but only on the right side of my face. It's so weird. Here's what I can figure: Smushing your face against the pillowcase can't be too great. Wash the pillowcase often and try to switch sides from time to time. Do you ever rest you face on your hands? I do, and I think that might be why the pimples are there. Trying to break the habit. Hair products? Anything you put on your hair can get on your cheeks at night. ...that's all I can think of. Might just be
  3. Still might be something worth trying. You don't know the amount of coconut oil in it. Personally, I'd start out with the basics of wash and moisturize. Let your skin get used to it, then introduce the extras one by one and see how you react. That way if you have issues, you know what's causing them. Good luck!
  4. I use Neutrogena Dry-Touch SPF 30 as well. It doesn't shine on my face, although I have to wait a few minutes before putting makeup over it to avoid chunkiness. Still looking for a good product designed especially for the face. And you DO need sunblock. At least SPF30 if you're using acne meds of any sort. Otherwise you're just going to add wrinkles and sun spots to your skin troubles.
  5. NO it does not replace sunscreen. It might help if you get a little pink and want to reduce the subsequent damage, but it won't protect your skin in any way. Find a good non-greasy sunblock and apply it every single morning, especially if you're using acne products.
  6. Didn't do much for me, but I'd say don't use it more than 3 or 4 times a week. Gets rid of dead skin cells I guess, but you have to let them build up a little before you can scrub 'em off. Using it too much WILL make you break out. Use it carefully and it might help (not bad for a $5 scrub).
  7. I have sensitive skin so I was wary of this, but I thought I'd give it a try. I've been using the Continuous Control Acne Cleanser for two months or so now, morning and night with moisturizer. It works okay alone- got rid of the stuff on my chin but the stubborn ones on my cheeks wouldn't go away. I'm using Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser. It has 2.5% SA but also has a bunch of stuff like soy extracts that make your skin feel good. I use it morning and night. I'm also using Clean
  8. Good call, Addie. If his claims have merit then time should tell-but in the meantime, I'd wait until the veil of secrecy is lifted and he gets a patent. The products he hawks online could contain anything-there's no way to know what you're putting on your face. 100% success rate isn't possible in science. Ever. Seriously. If you ever see a 100% success rate, you're being duped somehow.
  9. For what it's worth, I've heard the oxygen stuff is neither harmful nor effective. Just sort of a waste of money. I really don't have any sources though- maybe you can wikipedia it.
