  1. I have Oxy's emergency facial cleanser with 5% benzoyl peroxide. Are BP washes beneficial or is it just going to needlessly dry my skin out?
  2. I have finally cleared up my acne but my forehead looks rough and almost sandpapery. The rest of my face is nice and smooth and I exfoliate twice a week. How can I smooth out my forehead skin? Its worst right in the center.
  3. I have been using a bp wash for the past 2 months (with good results) but recently I started using a scrubbing thing to massage the wash into my face which combined with the BP wash, gave me little red splotches/burns on my face because I was using the srubby too often. What is a good lotion/product to help soothe it and make it go away quicker? Thanks all
  4. For those of you who use jojoba oil as a moisturizer, what cleanser do you use before hand? I really need a new cleanser, I've been using a scrub and using it every day is irritating my skin. Thanks guys
  5. I get how to apply it but do I use it as a moisturizer or before moisturizer? My brain hurts.
  6. Damn that sucks :( Will it do it every time I do a peel or just the first time?
  7. So about a week ago I did my first 12.5 TCA peel. I'm going to be doing 3 to get full results but I've noticed that now I'm having stubborn chin breakouts The rest of my face is fine and looking quite nice. My chin was always my problem and I was wondering if this was a "purging" thing that happens during peels that calms down after a bit because I really don't want more pimple scars.
  8. I recently started using Caprina Goat's Milk soap on my body. It feels nice and its been keeping my body breakouts at bay. Do you think trying it on my mild facial acne would be a good idea, usually the idea of using bar soap on my face scares me. Have any of you had success with Goat's Milk soap?
  9. I have mild acne scarring (or post inflammatory hyper pigmentation, I'm not sure) There is no indentation, just redness. Have any of you seen positive results on red marks using Paula's BHA?
  10. I've been using the Paula's Choice 2% BHA liquid for almost 3 weeks now and I haven't seen much improvement. What is the normal waiting time for this stuff to work?
  11. I just got the Paula's Choice 2% BHA liquid. It says its also an exfoliant, so I was wondering...Do I also have to exfoliate with a scrub or can the BHA be my only exfoliant?
  12. Are there any alternatives to Paula's Choice 2% BHA? I really want to try a good SA product but I don't want to order online, so I was hoping I could find something similar. Thanks!
  13. I really like using the Ponds cold cream but I need to exfoliate. I don't want to introduce any new products to my face since what I'm using has been working pretty well so far. Do you think it would be an effective exfoliator to mix sugar with my ponds cold cream? Have any of you tried it before?
  14. For those of you who have had success with sulfur, how long does it take to start seeing noticeable improvement? I started using the Clearasil sulfur cream about a week ago and while it is helping my pimples heal quicker, I'm still getting new ones. I have heard it takes awhile for acne treatments to start really preventing and making a serious improvement. My acne is mild is that makes a difference.
  15. Hi there, so I was at the store the other day to try out the j&j head to toe baby wash. I realized after I got home that I had bought the foaming head to toe baby wash. I googled it and the ingredients were the exact same so I was just curious, has anyone used the foaming version with good results?
