I have been using green cream for about 2 weeks now. I have dry to combination, acne prone, sensitive skin and am tolerating it well. I only had some dry flaky skin in the first week, but that is gone now. After about a week and a half I started the "purge". My acne is worse, but my skin actually looks better (where I don't have the pimples). So, I think you would probably go through the purge with green cream as well. How bad is the dryness?
When I was initially using the Renova every night (I have now been directed to use it once a week for the next 3 weeks) my skin was a disaster. I had so much dry skin and flakiness that I started getting dry skin "patches" (very raw, bubbled up dry skin) that turned into blister like scabs. Uh, yeaaaah it was REALLY bad. Plus it was making my skin, as you said it, purge. Well I can deal with the dry skin, but not the dry skin and 100 pimples on top of it. I thought maybe the green cream skipped the purge part, but I guess there is just no way of getting around it! :(
oh nooo. now i am getting nervous. i have been using green cream for about a week with very slight flaking and no new pimples. my skin looks so much better but all the posts about green cream mention the purge. how long does the purge cycle seem to last?
