Ever since I went off BCP my skin has been ridiculous. I have been on doxycycline for about 2 and half months and my skin broke out loads (I think as an initial breakout). Anyway, my derm had me using eryacne as a spot treatment but it just wasn't cutting it, it would take weeks for a breakout to go. So she prescribed me differin cream instead and told me just to use it as a spot treatment, unlike what everyone else seems to be doing. But it works fantastic as a spot treatment, it gets rid of them if not overnight, within 2 days and then I am just left with scarring which sucks but thats what concealer is for! My skin has a tendancy to get dry so thats why my derm gave me the cream and it doesn't really dry out my skin at all. I only had a little flakiness around one spot. Hopefulyl it will continue to do such a good job and I will start to see clearer skin soon... I have been waiting for clear skin for too long!!
I tried this last night and was quite impressed with the results. Although my skin was a little flaky the next day, it noticably reduced my pustules that I have (having the worst skin problems at the moment ugh!). Think I will try using this once a week, my skin definitely felt a lot softer afterwards. I mixed it with honey and left it on for about 20 minutes, it's kinda funny how much it bubbles up!
I have only used this product for 2 nights so far, so I will do an updated review when i have used this longer, but I must say it really does stop the itching. My skin has been terrible for months now, loads of breakouts and itchy dermitis/eczema on my jaw line. My derm gave me a steroid cream for 5 days which really helped and stopped the itching but when I stopped using it, it started itching again but not as bad as it was. So after reading the reviews on here, I thought I would give this lotion a go and it really does stop the itching. It soaks into the skin really well and the next day my skin felt really moisterised and softer. I'll have to use it longer and make sure it is not causing me to break out but so far so good. I also used it on my legs after shaving and they were feeling a bit itchy so I put this on and stopped the itching too. So overall a good all round product
