Any thoughts on that, other than the obvious Patrick Bateman quote?
It's a shitty supermarket one. The bottle says to use it every day.
Currently not using it, and I have a fairly teenage spot. Read into that what you will.
Be very careful with the 'gritty' ones, especially on irriated skin and around the eye area.
I exfoliate but in a kind of different way as the gritty bits irritate my skin (I use a product with AHAs/ glycolic and/ or normal cleanser buffed off with a muslin cloth. Th elater is my preference, but about once a fortnight i'll use a mask if I remember or can be arsed.)
Bit gritty. Feeling a bit low about my blocked pores.
I might not be able to use it - my eczema means I need to be very careful with my skin. But I'm trying it for now.
exfoliating is good for eczema, but can I recommend the following if the scrub doesn't work.
it is cheap and effective.##wet your face, and rub in a blob of emulsifyng ointment. like this stuff-
(I am sure you can get a cheaper smaller pot in the chemist).
You need to get some muslin cloth- you can either buy special ones for facial care, or do what I do, and order baby feeding ones and cut them into quarters.
Soak a cloth in really hot water, wring out, and then spread over your face you open your pores. Soak it again, wring out and then use in small circular motions to rub the cream off your face. Once you think it's mostly gone, splash with lukewarm water until clean.
Not sure I'd be able to use that - generic Boots emollient cream burns like a motherfucker, as does E45. Need to use Diprobase, which I slap on every morning with a trowel.
ie soft and liquid paraffin, except I think the ointment also contains a wax you may be sensitive to.
Try using the diprobase as a wash and using the cloth to exfoliate off, then slather on another layer as the moisturiser.
Don't really know what I'm doing with my skin beyond having at it with diprobase and weapons grade topical steroids as necessary.

Exactly the same thing, that just needs to be cut to size (ie gives you four cloths for each one)- http://www.amazon.co.uk/537/dp/B00FGOGZ7C/ref=sr_1_2?s=drugstore&ie=UTF8&qid=1441287006&sr=1-2&keywords=muslin+cloth
turns out the grit in most brands are actually little bits of plastic! this can't be great for the environment, getting washed out to sea and all.
I'm sure it'll be fine. I can't imagine a large corporation being so irresponsible as to put their profits over the environment, anyway.
you smug cunt!
Wait until I tell you that I've drafted patent applications for stuff that contains biodegradable microbeads!
Not now though. I'm incredibly busy being a successful business person in the world of business.
and use just a normal cleanser the rest of the time. would recommend.
definitely improved my visible pores
try that, I am using a £7 one i got from Asda seems to do the job fine - nspa I think
Washing me fizzog with shampoo or shower gel whenever in the shower seems to be sufficient, ta.
aqueous cream here, as recommended by my doctor
at the hot cloth thing I suggest upthread, using emulsifying ointment (which is even purer than aqueous cream, which is essentially the ointment watered down with other stuff.)
moisturiser is currently la roche posay cause i was bought it
and panoxyl 10% aquagel which i'll buy again and keep using
they are already banning products with microbeads and some companies have vowed to stop using them. Not very helpful link but shows its a thing...
it's boots no.7 or something. However I don't want to be washing loads of plastic down the sink for little benefit. Can anyone recommend an environmentally friendly and affordable product (exfoliating/cleansing face wash/scrub) that I can get it a regular shop.
no need for little scrubby bits
superdrug do one that's much cheaper. asdas nspa one is meant to be alright too.
