  1. Well I'm a guy, so no I'm not on birth control. And I've decided to cut wayyyy down on soda if not give up on it completely for my general health, so we'll see what happens with that. I just checked the L'Oreal crap and it definitely doesn't say it's non-comedogenic. But neither do any of my acne-oriented products. Although I guess it's kind of common sense that they would be, right? But if the L'Oreal stuff isn't non-comedogenic, it would make sense. My acne started getting REALLY bad (not
  2. Okay everyone, I usually only have pretty mild acne, with just some one or 2 day long whiteheads and such. But lately, I've been getting GIGANTIC pimples on my chin. The most recent one had 3 whiteheads, and they were all combined into one giant bump. I have no idea why this is happening, because it's definitely out of the ordinary. In addition to those weird huge things, I'm also getting a lot of regular pimples on my chin suddenly that seem to be a lot more resilient than the rest of my face.
  3. Thanks for the tip! Could I also put a bunch of lemon juice in it? I gag at the smell....
  4. Would it make sense to fill a mist bottle with witch hazel and spray my face with it once in a while? I like the idea of keeping it in the fridge and having the cooling effect. But my concern is, do I need to wipe it on my face with a cotton ball for it to work? Or is spraying it enough? Thoughts, please.
  5. If I'm using 1 pump of Cleanser, 2 pumps of BP, and 1 pump of Moisturizer twice a day, won't the BP run out a hell of a lot (meaning 2X) faster than the other two products? So to stay up to date, I'll have to get the Starter Kit plus an extra bottle of the BP. Yikes.
  6. Thanks for the advice! I actually have a microfiber cloth around somewhere. Last night I tried baking soda for the first time and the flakes are gone and the rest of my face feels amazing too. I just hope everything else normalizes so I have a nice face again.
  7. Hey everyone! So, I recently switched my products because I felt my old stuff had stopped working. I was using: - Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power Cream Wash- Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Treatment- AcneFree Terminator 10 (for spot treatment)- Clean & Clear Advantage Oil-Free Acne Moisturizer For a while, my skin was clearer than ever and my skin tone was unbelievable, but then one day it just stopped working. I was basically out of everyt
  8. Ok so I went to uber-classy Wal-Mart and bought the following today: - St. Ives Apricot CLEANSER (not scrub) Blemish Control - Bioré Triple Action Astringent (AMAZING!) - Persa-Gel 10 (for spot treating) - Olay Complete Lotion Has anyone tried these and had good results? I'd like to hear about it!
  9. So I've known about their acne gel and such but just recently came across their Acne Pack. It has an SA cleanser and day lotion as well as a BP night gel. It looks promising and is guaranteed so I think I'll give it a try, but I'd like to hear from those who've tried it first.
  10. Ok, so my current regimen isn't working anymore, as evidenced by the recent explosion of my face. My current product lineup is in my signature. I'm looking at the following: - Clean & Clear Continuous Control (Cleanser) - " " Advantage Astringent - Zapzyt 10% BP Gel (Spot Treatment) - Olay Complete Moisturizer. Does this seen okay? I also might keep the Neutrogena 3-in-1 Hydrating Treatment also. Please let me know what you think!
  11. Hey everyone. So, the regimen I have in my signature isn't really doing it for me anymore and I need some recommendations. Some stuff about my skin: 1. My acne is NOT very severe. I typically have 2-5 pimples at any given time. 2. I don't have uber oily skin. Basically just my nose will get a bit oily in the afternoon. 3. My skin isn't extremely sensitive so things like 10% BP would be alright. I'm not looking for a kit like Proactiv or AcneFree, but standalone products. I can't afford anythi
  12. Here's my thoughts: They're Neutrogena products, right? Well take the evaluation (which you've done) and then find the products they recommend at Wal-Mart! It costs 40 bucks plus shipping for Skin iD, but you could find the exact same thing at Wal-Mart for 20 bucks total. They're just re-packaging their products and selling them in smaller quantities for a higher price.
  13. Ugh. I bought a sample from Vitamin Cottage and absolutely HATED it. It felt like I had to use the whole bottle to remotely cover my hair. BUT it does just scream "I'm clean!".
  14. As far as the cleanser, Neutrogena's Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power-Cream Wash (whew, mouthful) has 2% Salycilic Acid and AHA (Glycolic Acid) is the 3rd ingredient on the list. I love it and my face has never looked better. * I don't know about a good 2.5% BP leave on, but the Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask is great for a cleanser as well. More Neutrogena! They have pads in their "Rapid Clear" line that are 2% SA and meant to reduce oil. The whole RC line is supposed to help within 8
