I love Tazorac. Tried Retin-A over the years. Did Accutane, and now retinoids are working! After my second course of Accutane, I started using 0.05 gel. I started to break out a little after about a year of stopping the tane, and went back to the derm.

She bumped me up to the 0.1 gel (strongest retinoid). It took about two weeks to get used to it, and for the redness and dryness to …

Liquid - Maybelline New York - Fit Me Dewy/Hydrate/Luminous and Smooth Foundation (formerly Fit Me)

I love this foundation. I have acne prone/oily skin. However, I have been on accutane for 5 months at half the full dose, so I have either two or four months to go, depending on whether my dose is double or if it is kept at the same level.

Before I started using accutane I was using EL DW in 4N1. It was the only thing that would hold up with my oily skin and not break down before the …

Loose Powders - Almay - Nearly Naked

Great setting powder. Inexpensive. Lots of powder. But limited Shade range. The medium light is perfect for my NC40 skin tone. Sets foundation. Doesn't settle in fine lines. Adds some color but not too much. Does not look chalky or shift the color of foundation. I wish more loose powders had a mechanism similar to bare minerals so that loose powders like this could me transported with ease …Read more

I bought this BB cream because tragedy stuck one night and I lost my makeup back with all my gear (mostly MUFE and EL foundations, concealers, shadows, primers; along with MAC and Japonesque Brushes) and had no choice but to go to the Drug Store and try and find something that I could use temporarily until I could get back my MUF Matte Velvet, Full Coverage Concealer, primer and Setting powder …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Retin A Cream

Jun/23/2013

Retin-A is the best skin treatment out there. I have been using it consistently since 2010. At first I got the horrible Retin-A induced purging of the skin and my face broke out horribly in these gross cysts and whiteheads for a good 6 months. But the Dr. put me on oral antibiotics and Topical Clindamycin as an extra measure combined with BP in the day time to knock out those suckers and it …Read more

I love this product! I used to use the regular DL but it felt too thick and was hard to take off. Also, I'm a man who wears base to even out my skin tone so it is very important that it not show. I loved the coverage of the regular DL but it was too mask like and in photos you could totally tell that I was wearing cover up! It would also get flaky in spots where my acne meds dried up my skin …Read more

I love this stuff! Hate the emergency rescue eye cream and the skin tone correcting serum, but this stuff is great! It plumps the lips and has a nice gloss. It smells like MAC chap stick. I love the smell. I would definately purchase this again. My only problem is the packaging. I don't like tubes that have holes on top that you have to squeeze and then smear on your lips with the tube …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Kinerase - Dr. Lewinn Skin Tone Perfecting Serum XK

Dec/02/2012

I had high hopes for this product because it is associated with the expensive Kinerase line. I did like the way it felt on my skin, like a serum. I have acne prone oily skin and I used this for a week and it TOTALLY broke me out! I had my acne under control using Retin-A, and oral and topical antibiotics and this stuff totally broke me out. It was the only thing I added to my regimen and so I …Read more
