i've used epidermx twice now and i'm absolutely stunned at how effective it is. i've had a red mark since august which hadn't shown any sign of shifting but it has gotten lighter with each use. the camellia oil is a joy to put on too, it's not heavy and soaks right in even into MY greasy skin. my pores have reduced in size considerably too. if you're a make up user, use a cleanser which definitely will get rid of ALL of your makeup cos you don't want to be rubbing that into your pores. i like oil of olay daily facials for sensitive skin (gentle but effective at make up removal) at night then in the morning a 100% natural but effective cleanser by liz earle that comes with muslin cloths (for added exfoliation).
also one thing to note is make sure you follow the epidermx instructions. you have to rub at your face for ages until you see dead skin balling up. if you don't see this you're just exfoliating and not peeling. then your face may be a touch on the red side but don't worry cos it goes away within an hour! i thought this process would make my skin kick out even more oil (cos of all that rubbing) but i have to say i am less oily now too.
