Re: Taking Accutane
Dec 15, 2004
My eyes haven't gotten dry at all. Aquaphor does a great job of moisturizing and healing for me, but I can only put it on at night because it makes me look like shiny plastic lol. I will put some on my lips during the day, but not too much because my lips shine too much.

I use Cetaphil face wash because it is so gentle. I bought it right away when I started Accutane. When I used it, I couldn't believe it was a legitimate product. I felt like it didn't clean at all. However, after a few days / weeks my face was just not oily or dirty at all. I used Cetaphil and it was like perfect... very rejuvenating. Out of curiosity I tried using the stuff I used to use (St. Ives medicated acne scrub), which I really don't understand why, but while I was rubbing it on my face I kept thinking wow this isn't so bad. After I washed it all off, my skin turned bright red. The next day it looked like my face had mild sunburn (the night I washed my face it was like severe sunburn). The redness lasted at least 2 or 3 more days. Case in point, don't mess around while on Accutane. Stick with Cetaphil, it is perfect. I am just curious, what about after we are done with Accutane? Are we supposed to keep using Cetaphil or are we supposed to go back to other stuff? I was also using Neutrogena face wash / mask with 3.5% benzoyl peroxide and absolutely loved it. I wish I could still use it. :rolleyes:
