I was at Sephora the other day. My favourite Giorgio Armani Master Fluid primer ran out and I was torn between buying a replacement or try something new. In the end I decided to try out the Make Up For Ever primer and the HD Loose powder. (My Giorgio Armani Microfil Loose Powder has been with me for way longer that it should, high time I threw it away.)
I suffered from adult acne through out my adult life. After delivering my son and visiting the dermatologist, I took Diane for quite a few years to control my acne. It did a marvelous job, no more pimples and it controlled my oily face very well.
Last year I decided to stop using Diane because I didn't think it was wise to continue taking it for too long. I think I stopped around September last year. After a week, I could feel that my face was getting oilier. It didn't faze me much because I just had to tell myself to blot often and get used to it. But by December I was getting really bad pimples around my chin area. They would dry up, go away and new ones would appear. I think February was the worst time for me. I had pimples all around my eye brow area and the chin area just got worst.
It was around this time that I went to Sephora and decided to pick up the Boscia Little Black Book to try out. I was desperate to try anything. I'll let you know how I feel about it.
I forgot how devastating it feels with so many pimples on my face. My face feels heavy with oil and hurts often because of the fresh huge pimples. I was feeling very low and honestly not in the mood to put on makeup. None of my foundations stay on my face for long. My whole face becomes oily after an hour.
I threw the towel in and went back to my doctor for Diane. I just couldn't take it anymore. I'm not sure if I made a wise decision. The thing with taking birth control pills is that I must perform regular breast examinations to check for lumps. Pap smears are a must every year. I'll be honest, I hate Pap Smears because they just feel very uncomfortable but for the sake of my face and health I'm just going to suck it up and do it.
I'm not sure if it is a wise decision on my part. Today I am eating my third pill from the first pack. I can't wait for the oliies to go away and my pimples to settle. Wish me luck.
