    Finally clear, finally clear, finally clear, finally clear!!!!!!!!!

    I am so sorry for taking so long to reply to everyone who wants to know how Acnease, and Diane 35 work. I've been waiting to see if my skin clearing was only temporary, or a halleucination (sp?)from all the pills I was taking to clear my skin. (ha ha) Anyway, I am just finishing my 2nd month of Acnease, and have just started my 2nd month of Diane 35. My skin is 95% clear!! I do get a pimple or two here and there, pimple I repeat, if you search through my previous 100 and so odd posts I suffer from a very bad case of cystic acne, mostly cheek, jaw and chin area. I've tried every acne product under the sun, except Accutane, and finally narrowed it down to my acne being hormonal, since I am 24 years old and shouldn't still be battling this horrible ordeal! I've tried b5, didn't do anything for me but send me to the vitamin store every week, and Proactiv, stopped working for me after about a year, but must admit I started it back up a few months ago, and I think it is working well with helping to clear up the rest of the acne on my face. As I feel my face now I have only one pimple on my forehead but I had been walking all day yesterday in the heat with a ball cap on sweating quite a bit. Now you probably want to know which product is working for me, since I've been using both in conjunction with each other, I honestly saw an improvement in my skin (with the Acnease) before I started the Diane 35,but I think after a month with the Diane 35 and the Acnease, my face was unbelievably clear!! Now as I post this, I am knocking on wood,and keeping my fingers crossed that this is what will ultimately work for my skin, not just a teaser. It seems every time I post, it seems to backfire and my skin breaks out all over again, so please keep your fingers crossed for me too, Thanks!! I hope this works for all you acne sufferers out there, I really believe it will work for people with hormonal acne like mine, if I left any info out please post, and I will reply right away, Good luck!!

    Syd1,
    I was looking at an older post of yours where you mentioned ordering diane 35. My shipment of acnease just got here and I too was thinking of w=switching from Alesse 28 to Diane 35. Are you from the US? If so, where did you order the Diane 35 from? I found it online for about $50 for 3 packs, did you find it any better?
    Thanks.

    Oh yeah- I know how you feel, I am 24, too. It seems like people look at you like your dirty being older with acne. I also feel like i look like a kid. Sucks...

    Im new to healthboards and I just thought i'd share my happiness using Diane 35.Ive been using it for over 2 years now.Its the best decision ive ever made.My face is clear and I suffered from severe acne for years trying everything possible.It took about 3/4 months to clear but then it was great.Slowly after a year all my scars went too.no side affects.Be patient thats all I can say.Well best of luck to everyone

    Re: Finally clear, finally clear, finally clear, finally clear!!!!!!!!!

    To agaddy and bj72, I'm not sure if we can post where we can purchase products on line, but I paid about $50 also for a 3 month supply of Diane 35, I'm from the U.S. so I also had to find it on the internet. As for Acnease it didn't notice a change until probably the 4th week, that's when I decided to order a 2nd month supply. I am very confident about these products working for my face as with the birth control pill Diane 35 I believe it is very effective with hormonal acne because I tried Ortho tri cyclen which is advertised to contol acne, and that pill did nothing for me but make things worse (that's just me though, it may work for others), the Murad acne system absolutely destroyed my face, way worse than I ever seen in my whole adult acne life, I'm saying all this to say I have tried a lot of acne products out there and am blown away with the results I have had with Diane and Acnease. And I too finally cleared by reading other peoples posts and narrowing down to what really worked for me! Good luck!!

    Re: Finally clear, finally clear, finally clear, finally clear!!!!!!!!!

    syd1 - I am so glad that you had good luck with Diane 35! That gives me hope..

    I am about to start taking it in a few days and am a little worried. Did you have an initial breakout? I cant handle anymore breakouts! Right now my face is pretty clear - just dealing with the red marks.

    Also, Did you notice any weight gain?
    What about oiliness? Did it improve on Diane 35?

    Sorry for all of the questions! Any help you can give would be great!

    Re: Finally clear, finally clear, finally clear, finally clear!!!!!!!!!

    Navywife, I experienced no initial breakout with Diane35, I expected one though because my skin usually breaks out at the drop of a dime, I experienced getting fewer and fewer acne on my face as the weeks progressed and when I did get breakouts they were no where near the cystic acne I was dealing with the previous weeks, I've only been using Diane for about a month and a half but think as the months pass my skin will look even better, my skin isn't oily either but I never really had a problem with oil, I would say my skin is combination, and luckily no weight gain either. I wish you luck with Diane 35 and keep me posted on your results as well!!

    Re: Finally clear, finally clear, finally clear, finally clear!!!!!!!!!

    Syd1, I am so happy to hear that Diane 35 along with acnease has helped your skin!

    Like Navywife, I am due to start taking Diane 35 soon (I am just waiting for dreaded aunt Flow to come). I was wondering if you are considering in taking Diane 35 long term?

    I actually have combination skin too... I only tend to ever be "slightly" oily on my T-zone, everywhere else I am as dry as a bone. Having combination skin, what cleanser do you use? I am using Oxy cleanser for sensitive skin at the moment... seems to be the only one that doesn't break me out in lots of little pimples and get my face or red and irritated.

    Also, are you taking any vitamins to also help your skin too?

    Sorry for all the questions LOL.

    Re: Finally clear, finally clear, finally clear, finally clear!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Minim, I will definately be taking Diane 35 long term if the results keep benefiting me, as with birth control pills in the past I used to have a problem forgetting to take them, but as with this one, I look as it now as a bcp and acne medication, so in other words I look forward to taking the pill, lol. As a cleanser for my face I am using Proactiv, although I really didn't see much effectiveness with Proactiv before I started using Acnease and Diane 35, but I feel like it is clearing my pimples vs. before where I had huge cystic type acne all over my face that no topical treatment was ever going to cure. And as far as vitamins go I'm not to consistent on them, I'll go a month and take them everyday, and then the next month barely take any at all, which I know I should but it's hard when you're concentrating on finding some oral treatment to clear your acne. I'd love to know how Diane 35 works for you, I'm sure if you're acne is hormonal it will definately work, I wish you luck as well, please keep me posted on your results, and I'll do the same!!

    Hi Syd!
    Glad to hear from you again. I'm on the combo too and it's great! I don't use any face wash anymore and my face is still great. Once in a while I exfoliate and do a nice oatmeal mask.
