Hey so Benzac has been discontinued. Sucks because it was definitely reducing my acne. Ran out of it halfway through, tried to replced it with Oxy but doesn't work. I'm looking at Mycin gel, anyone had luck with it?

I asked the pharmacist and they said the brand has been terminated. The 5% Benzac on the shelves is them clearing out stock.

I saw some people promoting CDL products here, my friend is one of the victim from the product. When she started using it, it was so good that make your skin so smooth, once she stopped, all acne came out and side effects on her skin, especially face part. Full of acne and she has to deal with it for few months until the side effects are gone.

So be your own judge.

All depends on the severity of your acne. As said before Benzoyl Peroxide can be a good treatment to begin with it. However, if this doesn't work it's better to contact a dermatologist so he can prescribe you antibiotics. For severe forms the only treatment left is Accutane.

I had hormonal acne when I was a teenager. I went to the dermatologist a few times and invested so much money in high-end skincare products but nothing worked! When I turned 21 and still suffered from acne, a friend who also suffered from acne suggested Accutane. I mentioned it to my parents and they decided to take me to the derm clinic again. I started taking Accutane (lowest dosage) for 3+ months and my skin cleared up! I still get a couple of pimples especially during my period but they're not as bad as before. Right now I'm focusing on keeping my skin clear of scars and dark spots. I've been using products from The Ordinary and some Korean brands, and my skin has never been happier.

On a side note, if you decide to take Accutane, please do some research on it and the side effects. It's a pretty strong drug that may disrupt your digestive system. Someone told me that Accutane needs to be taken with probiotics to help balance the pH in the gut but I'm not sure how true this is. Unfortunately for me, I started getting recurring yeast infections after taking Accutane. But one visit to the OBGYN solved my problem and I don't get the infections anymore.

In other words, my acne journey has been a roller coaster ride! But I'm glad that everything is under control now.

To solve acne problems must first deep clean the skin. I know Halo and You Deep Cleansing Face Mask can help solve it. This is the best face mask that I used compared to other brands. It really shows the results in just 1application. The mask really deep clean face and brighten+moiturise the face. It suck out those face's dirt,oil, cosmetic residual..
