30 Days of BP: Week 1
Aug. 8, 2020Leave a comment
I decided to use BP for 30 days. This doesn’t include days where I don’t use BP. When I don’t use it, that means I skipped using it (dry skin). Here’s my experience from using it from day to day. I hope this is helpful! 😀
Day 1: Today, I decided to start using BP again due to having hard sebum in my pores. When I run my fingers over my skin, it doesn’t feel as smooth as I like it to be (after I stopped using Tret Cream, clogged my pores in the long run). Also, I noticed that my skin was breaking out again. Ugh! I know, I know. It sucks. BP is the only thing that has done my skin some good. At the moment, I don’t have Tret yet. So let’s embark on this BP journey (once again).
Day 2: I woke up this morning with better looking skin compared to when I was on the Tret Cream. Some pimples emerged. BP killed active pimples. I’m not sure what’s going to happen to my skin, but at least I’m doing something about it in the meantime…
Day 3: Rest day. 🙂
Day 4: I’m back to using BP. Skin looks like it’s going to peel. I have dry, flakes everywhere. Wow, I can’t believe this is happening. The tiny hard sebum I was complaining about are coming out naturally. Good riddance! My skin does feel much, much smoother now too. Yay! I still have a long way to go though!
Day 5: My skin is looking much better compared to when I started. I’m still dealing with patches of skin flaking off. Some of the dead skin just won’t come off, so I left them alone. Let’s see what happens next.
Day 6: Rest Day.
Day 7: I’m having trouble removing the dead skin. It’s like stuck to my face. wth. These hard sebum within my pores are getting on my nerves. They just won’t go away. Well! I’m losing faith in BP. Trying my best to hold on until I start my Tretinoin Journey once again. It’s going to be a while. Bleh.
That’s Week 1 of my 30 Days of BP Journey! Let’s continue on to Week 2! See you all there! 🙌🏻

My Tretinoin Journey: What now?
Aug. 3, 2020Leave a comment
I’ve been off of Tretinoin for a while now. I don’t know when I’m going to get back on it. Hopefully soon. Very soon. So what have I been doing lately?? Here’s a round up of what I’ve been trying out/doing.
- I tried AHA. I stopped using AHA because it was just drying out my skin. I didn’t see any improvements in my acne with it. AHA seems like something I would use once or twice a week only. Any more than that, my skin doesn’t benefit from it.
- I tried Differin once again with no results. Yep, it doesn’t work on my skin at all, unfortunately. 🙁 Feels like I’m applying water on my skin with no effects and results.
- I tried using retinol. Didn’t work. Wasn’t strong enough for my skin. It’s an OK skin care ingredient. I need something more.
- I tried BP all over my skin at night once again. Much better than the rest, but I can’t see myself doing this long term. Out of all I have tried, BP worked the best to maintain my skin while I wait for Tretinoin.
There you go. BP is what I’m doing again. I hope to see at least some results from it while I wait. So far, it’s been OK. I’m dealing with hard sebum within my pores. Ugh! They’re soooo annoying! Hopefully they’ll go away soon! I’m trying to stay optimistic and positive about the results. Wish me luck! 🙂
