This medicine has changed my life! Yes, that dramatic... changed my life. I'm 46, started with cystic acne at 20. From my 20s until mid 30s, went through the whole process, antibiotics, Retin A--that helped some, but still had a lot of painful breakouts. Serious drug reactions from antibiotics. Went through the Accutane regiment and had clear skin for about 6 months after finishing. I was so depressed, eventually I was back to breakouts and several large cysts on my face at all times.I thought I had tried it all, as far as acne treatment out there. In my early 40s, I was depressed! 20+ years of face inflammation and painful breakouts. Having an arsenal of foundations, concealers and powders just to make myself look normal when I went out in public...wtf! I went back to the Derm, told them my story and pleaded my case. They put me on 50mg to start (along with Retin A), went up to 100mg, and my skin cleared up a good 80% from before. To me, this was like magic! Eventually, they put me on 100mg 2x a day and my skin is now awesome. I literally have the clearest skin I've had since I was a child. I have regular labs that are good. The only side effects have been that my skin is on the dry side now (I welcome that) and I noticed I went up a few bra cup sizes. I no longer have to plan my day around painting my face to hide the inflammation and redness that I had for over 20 years. It is a Godsend for me!

So this definitely does make hair growth increase, and it did improve my overall skin quality, but my facial skin...oh dear.I had some of the worst cystic acne ever from both biotin supplements and topical biotin in hair products. I also experienced closed comedones on my neck and shoulders, that took months and both exfoliation and extraction to clear up. Unfortunately for me, I used the hair product first, and never connected the acne or bumps to it. I switched products when I ran out and never thought of it again until I tried a biotin supplement and experienced the same issues.I definitely recommend watching your skin and starting slow with this. I now take prenatal gummies as my multi vitamin since they are one of the few I can find without biotin!

soothing, smoothing, exfoliating. The effects were beautiful, and the price can't be beat. There's one MAJOR drawback:this mask is terrifying when applied! It made my face look like some sort of grotesque smallpox outbreak, even though I blended the oats into a powdery consistency beforehand. Also, I didn't feel comfortable rinsing it into the drain. I haven't used this in a while, so I can't recall just HOW I took it off. I only remember that it was a hassle.

So I bought an organic, fresh, juicy papaya while living in a tropical country and kept it on for about 15 minutes. Bam! the next day a huge, huge zit in my EYEBROW and another two in more predictable places, on my chin and nose. It took me over a month to get those cysts under control. I know there will be some you will love it, but I suspect my skin reacts badly to fruit acids, so no to papaya for me.

I just started using this today and im so excited to try this cause this stuff smells and feels just amazing. Its winter and drying and my skin is supa dry right now so I wanted to try this out. I will use it all over my body and in my face. I will also use it on my hubby for his body which is supa dry cause he works outside every day. I will post update after a week. Here in Finland this is cheap but once you open the bottle you cant make it stay closed so I have to find a way to make it stay closed but thats another issue.
