I've also had MAJOR success with the aspirin. It's been about 7 months or so for me. The only thing is, I don't use it as a mask, I just use it as a scrub every 2 or 3 days. When I used it as a mask, my face got so unbelieveably dry that it cracked when I tried to smile (OW!).. my chest was extremely tight feeling and itched like crazy from the dryness. So, if you have super sensitive skin like me, using it as a mask might be a little too harsh..

I use about 15 aspirin and few drops of water in a little dish and let it soften while I'm showering. After washing, I put my hair up and scrub my face, neck, chest, and back with the aspirin and let it set for about a minute, then rinse off well. This still dries my face and neck out pretty bad (really really sensitive), so lately, I've been using Purpose moisturizer (it's oil free and very light) as soon as I dry off and I use ALOT of moisturizer there. After the moisturizer soaks in well, I dab a bit of benzoil peroxide on the few pimples that I have. In between the scrub days, I just Basis cleansing bar with a washcloth, moisturize lightly, and then the benzoil peroxide on the pimples only.

I've had some form or other of acne since I was in 2nd grade (I'm 31 now) and this is the first time in YEARS that I have it even close to being under control. I've had the cysts, the tiny pimples, the bright red zits, you name it, on my face, neck, and back.. Now I only get the tiny pimples on my face.. maybe 3 or 4 at a time as opposed to 20 or 30 at a time. I haven't had a cyst on my face since I started doing the aspirin scrub. I do still have a few small pimples on my back and chest, but it's because I sweat alot at night (still trying to figure out why). Other than that, I'm pretty clear.

If I could only get rid of the red scars and the few pitted ones, I wouldn't need makeup anymore :eek:
