Hey everyone, I have been reading, lurking, and occasionally posting for a few months now. I read wonderful reviews about the Epidermx microdermabrasion and Silkia Camellia Oil. I first ordered the Epidermx and have went through the microdermabrasion process 3 times now (Once every other week) with some improvement. I decided to order the Silkia Camellia Oil as my moisturizer after the microdermabrasion because my skin is weird now that I'm older, dry in some places oily in others...very combination. I did the micro. and afterwards applied the Camellia Oil. Obviously a big mistake for my skin. I had a bad reaction and as of right now I have 3 huge cysts on my face and several other small ones, as well as several whiteheads. My skin is the worst it has been in years and I hate to even go out in public because of it. What did I do wrong? I was hoping for the results everyone else had gotten, but no, my awful skin had to go and breakout all over in cysts and whiteheads. Now I'm afraid to even try the Epidermx again because of this. I'm not sure if I used too much of the camellia oil, or if my skin type just won't tolerate it. Just wondering if anyone else has had a bad reaction to the Camellia Oil? I've gotten to the point where I don't know what to use anymore.
Alot of people had good reactions to the Epidermx but had the same type of bad cystic reaction to the C. Oil, though some HAVE had success with it. This is one of the reasons why I chose not to use the C. Oil. Just stop using the C. Oil and continue using Epidermx by itself. Epidermx will help get rid of those cysts quicker!!! If you are looking for a good moisturizer that balances the skin's differences I would look into Derma Butter, that is what I use instead of the C. Oil. No break outs or bad reactions to it.

I'm sorry for this misfortune! I hope everything turns out well. Please let us know how things are going.
