    Smile Starting over... Once again

    Hi, it's been a while since my last post.

    My rosacea is pretty much under control with ORACEA and METROGEL at night.

    My seb derm is gone too

    Now, let's cut to the chase, my skin is still super oily and I still get acne and ingrown hairs. I hate it!

    I've been using the same routine for about a year, and I think it ran its course

    I was in the mornings with DERMADOCTOR BORN TO BE MILD for seb derm, wonderful

    In apply DERMADOCTOR ACNE CONTROL SERUM, I was in loooove with this serum but it seems like it's not that great anymore, I apply it twice a day all over my face. It was wonderful for cysts, pimples and ingrown hairs. I bet they changed something because it feels oily lately. It costs 45 bucks 1 ounce.

    I was my face at night with NEUTROGENA ACNE STRESS FOAMING CLEANSER, it's fairly cheap and good, but maybe it's time for a change too.

    My derm wants me to wash my face with PLEXION, sulfur and sulfa, she says it will dry out my oil dont know about that because I used ROSANIL and hated it. This one is lathering and not creamy like ROSANIl

    Then she wants me to use DIFFERIN at night before the MRETROGEL, dont know about that either. After months of differin years ago my face was left very sensitive, and the acne was never really gone.

    I feel frustrated, I thought I finally got it, as usual, I need something else

    See ya, and thank u 4 reading my post

    Hi Erikson
    I have no advice to offer but just wanted to say hey and glad you are doing so well with regards to the rosacea and seb derm! I am sure you will be able to get your oiliness under control. I would start with the less is more rational and perhaps add one thing at a time and see if it helps.

    Good luck!

    Melissa

    Cool Hello again

    Hello Melissa

    I'm very happy to "see you" again!

    Thank you very much, I always miss your advice.

    You are right about that!

    My derm wanted me to add the PLEXION and DIFFERIN to my routine, WTH!!! Like I have no life lol, I want a simple, effective, gentle regimen, that WORKS!

    I will keep on using the products or meds that really work.

    I will try this line, http://www.google.com.pr/aclk?sa=l&a...rosett&cad=rja

    I remember using it for cystic acne in the past, just the mask, and it was nice for my skin, let's see how the whole line works

    See ya, God bless xoxo
