  1. I've stumbled across this website during what is probably one of my worst ever outbreaks. I've felt at a total loose end and I just don't know what to do. Having read through the site and a lot of the posts on the forum I feel half excited and half completely overwhelmed. I'm glad I've found a place like this with people who can offer decent help. Anyway, I wouldn't say that normally my acne is bad, just moderate, it depends. I've had it for around 8 years now and I'm 21. When I finally pluck
  2. The guide says not to use comodogenic stuff. Is Gillette shaving gel comodogenic? i couldn't find this information on their site, and it doesn't say on the can.
  3. I have decided to start using the Sensor excel like you suggested, instead of my electric razor. I would rather not use the lather from the soap though, and use shaving gel instead. 1) Is this shaving gel non-comedogenic? Here are the ingredients: Ingredients: Deionized Water, Palmitic Acid, Triethanolamine, Stearic Acid, Isopentane, Fatty Acid Esters, Sorbitol, Fragrance, PVP, Isobutane, PEG-90M, FD&C Blue #1, D&C Yellow #10, Aloe Vera Gel Those ingredients above are the
  4. Hey everyone. I've seen a few topics about shaving here, but none answered what I specifically want to know. I'm curious about what shaving gel/foam/oil to use. Has anyone anything to say about those clear oil solutions such as the King of Shaves line, Total Shaving solution or Sensodryne (thats not what its claled but hey..)? You know those clear oils which only take a few drops and then nothing else? I'd like peoples opinions on these products, and also I'd be grateful if someone could tell
  5. hello to everyone. let me start off by saying my face looks better than before starting the regimen. but not totally clear. this is my situation. i get only 2 zits a week on the same darn side. the rest of my face is clear except for my right side. every time so far i've been getting one huge ugly monstrous white head and a small red bump that will turn into a huge ugly monstrous white head while the other one is some what gone. this has been happening and mean while my skin is blotchy in that
  6. Is there even such a thing with those two combined? I have such dry & irritated skin, and it becomes very dry & flaky right after I've shaved. I can literally scrape all the dead skin away, but it becomes a vicious cycle. ......... On a sidenote - is there a UK product that answers to Aveeno shaving gel?
  7. Do you guys shave before cleansing, at the beginning of the regimen (as Dan does)? I haven't started a regimen yet, but my concern is that my skin will get irritated badly if I shave, cleanse, then add BP. Is there any other better time to shave? And is it okay to use a normal shaving gel? Thanks EDIT: I'm also thinking I will just use a normal shaving gel (say, Gillette sensitive) rather than a cleanser to shave with. If I cleanse my skin, including the shaving area straight after, will I b
  8. Do any guys here use Gillette shaving gels? (the ones that produce lather when you rub them onto your face) I think they are crappy products. I've used the "Moisturizing" variety for a few months and I think it causes my face to breakout. Does anybody else feel the same?
  9. Hello ALL! Quick Note: I apologize for the length, please do not let it steer you away, I truly believe and hope my story and findings could help you! I would like to start by saying thank you to Dan for creating this website. I cannot thank him and everyone else on here enough for posting your help, insight and stories. Even though I am new to posting I have fallowed this sight for a few years and I have learned a lot. Background I am 22 years old and I have suffered from mild t

    I've been doing this for the past week and I've had good results from it so far so thought I'd share it with everyone and see what you all think. After wet shaving, I wash any excess shaving gel from my face from areas that aren't being shaved with warm water and then use cold water to close the pores (or make them smaller or whatever) and then I get an ice cube and roll it around my whole face until it melts away. This really helps with inflammation and if you have any small bumps coming up,
  11. has anyone used cetaphil gentle cleanser as a shaving gel.??
  12. So I have been an acne sufferer since the age of about 13. I am now 21. I know I haven't dealt with this confidence-killing problem as long as many others on here who have had it for 15+ years. Most importantly, though, I know what it's like to battle acne successfully. I had been on SO many other acne treatments/prescriptions before the regimen such as: 1) Doxycycline 2) Minocycline 3) Adoxa 4) Solodyn 5) Retin-A Micro 6) NeoBenz-Micro 7) Clindamycin My problem was I would just quit the anti
  13. I've struggled with acne for 7 years now, including a very stubborn variety where i shave. I've tried so many creams gels lotions razors electric razors etc and finally found a great combo. I stiil get bad forehead and upper cheek acne, but where i shave on my face and neck i rarely get anything now. heres what i use: 1. King of Shaves For Men K-Series AlphaGel Shaving Gel, Active Skin Cleansing- it has t tree oil, dds?, aloe, green t, triclosan, vitamin e. it does contain Sodium Laureth Sulfat

    I wasn't too sure where to post this, so I settled for here. If it's wrong, I do apologise and feel free to move it to the correct forum or sub-forum. I just wanted to ask a few things about shaving; you see, it's always been a problem for me, the past 2 years or so... I've always told myself I'm doing it wrong, which is most likely the problem here. I shave about once every 2-4 days (so it's not everyday), yet when I do shave, I always seem to get these irritating red spots on my neck (usually
  15. I've been washing my face for years, but after reading this site I feel like I"ve been doing it wrong. I usually get my face pretty wet with hot water, then I lather up with a Purpose bar and usually rub it in my face for a good minute. Sometimes I'll let the soap just sit on my face for another minute before rinsing it off. Is this wrong? How long should it take me to wash my face? Does it matter if I use hot or cold water? Slightly unrelated, but do I need to be washing my face before AND
  16. Hey everyone, this is my first post as have just registered. Have been a fan of the site for a while now and until recently am thinking about giving this regimen a go! Have suffered from mild acne for around 4 years now and have tried a range of things. 1. Was on doxycycline for a few months but that only seemed to clear my forehead and back which is alot better 2. After this I tried a couple of homeopathy remedies that worked but after a couple of months my acne came back! 3. Have recently
  17. I am looking for a new shave gel that will not break me out, hopefully. I am currently trying to pick between 3 but would like anybody else's comments and opinions on which ones to use. The 3 I am trying to decide between are: Edge Advanced Senstive Skin (with Aloe) Ingredients: Deionized Water, Palmitic Acid, Triethanolamine, Stearic Acid, Isopentane, Sunflower Oil Monoglycerides, Sorbitol, Aloe Barbadensis Gel (Aloe Vera Gel), Fragrance, PVP, Isobutane, PEG 90M, FD&C Blue 1 (not sure a

    Right, I'm going to start a log. After observing on the forum for a couple of months I think its time to join properly. History I has severe acne from about 14 onwards especially my forehead. At 16 I went on Accutane for a few months at a relativly low dose. Got rid of my spots and I just had scars on my forehead really. I am now 23 and I get acne moderatly badly but mainly on my cheeks and chin. Every month or two I get a massive cyst which is a megapain and I have a number of scars on my che
  19. Think this is ok to use to shave my face with and avoiding acne (currently have very little - like 3 bumps a week if that). I just don't want any irritation or clogged pores, if anybody has used this or has any incite please share. Nivea For Men Sensitive Shaving Gel * Specially formulated for Sensitive Skin * Unscented, free of dyes * Moisturizer Enriched * Dermatologically Tested Ingredients: Water, Palmitic Acid, Triethanolamine, Oleth-20, Isopentane, Sorbitol, Mineral Oi
  20. Well found this website yesterday and started straight away the next day. I have been using tea tree oil facial wash and tea tree oil moisturiser for the last months and they have worked wonders on my skin, well when I say that I mean they improoved it a lot but didnt stop spots. I have no added Oxy On the Spot to my regime and am making sure to be careful with my skin. Atm my forehead and both cheeks are patchy, nothing compared to others but 1 spot is more than enough. I started this morning
  21. If you shave with a razor and shaving gel and all that then do you need to exfoliate still. Shaving is a form of exfoliation and i would think that if you shaved then used an exfoliant your skin would become too irritated and dry. SO for the guys who shave here, is shaving our way of exfoliating???DO we REALLLLLY need to exfoliate any more??? hmmmmmmm
  22. (apologies if wrong forum area - i'm not sure) Male, caucasian, pale oily skin, rapid facial hair growth, early 30's, acne since mid-teens. I've had moderate to mild acne for the past 15 years with irregular bad outbreaks. Since using Retin-A for 18 months, i've had flakey skin too. Tried every over-the-counter and prescribed solution, diet changes, body treatments, etc. etc. After reading this forum last week, i've finally solved with with ZERO $$$ and effort. I'm fond of daily hot showers,
  23. Does anyone know any oil free shaving gels as i dont like shaving with cleansing bars.I find the cleansing bars dont give a good razor glide like shaving gels even with a good lather any suggestions.ps im from Ireland
  24. This is going to be long, but like Dan I think the details are important. Products used are: Brevoxyl 4% Panoxy wash 10% BP Cetaphil cleanser Nivea oil control shaving foam. Morning: Shave with a wet razor, usually Gillette Mach 3 using the Nivea shaving gel. I don’t think it helps reduce oil any but I do like the texture of it. Electric shavers just don't cut it for me and seem to make me break out so I never use them anymore. The shave is followed by a shower. I don't actually use
  25. can someone tell me a good shaving gel for acne because i break out alot from shaving and someone else told me to use a single blade is that better. i have sensitive skin
