Help My Oil but Not My Pimple
Reviewed
Skin Type: oily Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Anti-Aging (Fine lines & Wrinkles), Sensitive Skin, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

I tried these product because i did stop taking ISOTRETINOIN (ACCUTANE) for 1 year (as my dermatologist prescribe). And i don't want to use ISTOTRETINOIN again, since i read many information about it. And i am using EFFACLAR ASTRINGENT one month already. And it reduce my oil, but not too much. I still have many pimples on my face. And the pimple moves everywhere. Sometimes when one is heal already and the other one is getting bigger. I will continue this product until few months to see the result. I'm using EFFACLAR DUO +, and EFFACLAR PURIFYING CLEANSING GEL. I am not sure about my pimples. Because sometimes it looks very bad, very big pimple with bacteria inside it (white thing inside the pimple). And i never have that pimple ever in my life. But i still thinking in possitive way, well maybe it part of the process. Some of my whiteheads now is getting better, and maybe because these product also open my pore.
