This weekend my skin has been the clearest I have ever seen it. I only have 3 active pimple and they are on my jawline so you can't really see them. My blackheads have significantly reduced and my clogged pores are starting to go away. I still have some problems with red marks, but that's easy to cover with makeup.

What I've been using:

1. MD Forte Cleanser II
2. MD Forte Advanced Hydrating Gel

1. Clarins Men Active Face Wash
2. Tazorac 0.1%
3. Wait at least 30 minutes and apply Clarins Men Moisture Balm

I am a girl, but really like the simplicity of the Clarins Men line. My boyfriend had moderate acne when I met him and his face is really clear after using the facewash and moisture balm religously. I think the moisture balm is really great. My skin feels so supple ever since I've been using it. I use the MD Forte Glycolic cleanser in the morning to get rid of any flakes caused by the Tazorac. I sometimes use it at night, but try not to do that too much to reduce the risk of redness and irritation.

Well, I hope my clearish skin isn't short lived. I've been using Tazorac for a little over a month so I guess my skin got past the initial breakout (which wasn't nearly as bad as I expected).

I guess I should tell you my background: I have had persistent acne since I was 12. I am now 20 and the acne is just as persistant. I am under the care of a dermatologist and I am also taking Minocycline and Spirolactone with my routine.

Maybe this will help someone out there. If not, well.....I'm surprised to look in the mirror and not be disgusted with what I see. =) That's definitely a good thing!
