And you will not get me out in public without full coverage foundation and concealer on, nope. I don't go places after the gym not because I'm sweaty and kinda gross but because all my makeup has been sweated (or wiped with a towel) off... okay so when I say it like that, it sounds like it affects my self-confidence, but I don't feel like it does, just that it makes me have... unusual behaviours LOL.
I know at my work we have several people on varying prescription meds for acne. Epiduo is very popular. The problem we (well, customers) run into is the price. Most dermatologists seem to be oblivious to the price of these medications and/or the budgets of the people they're prescribing them too. If you can get coupons or have it stretch, they might well be worth it.

I've only been able to keep my face to mildly cleared up. I've learned being regular with cleaning my face helps. (Duh. )

Also. My curly hair= frizzy hair and it sucks. I can never find a good in between. It's either super dry and frizzy or way too greasy. Doesn't help I'm lazy about hair care products. Or products in general.

Epiduo is what I'm on right now, and it's expensive but my doctor's office gives me those coupons. It's like $30. But the tube I have now has lasted almost a full year (it's super drying so I can't use it every day during the winter.)

The antibiotics I took were generics so none of those were expensive. They just didn't do anything. =/ I read somewhere about other hormone therapy... that kinda freaks me out a bit, I'm just not sure how much I really want to screw with my body to avoid pimples. Supposedly the best thing for acne in women is testosterone... hm.

Only dry lips/nasal passage. The dry nose thing was the worst but temporary.

Pleasant, girly smelling body wash recommendations? My current body wash is some crap from Walmart. Something that is at least slightly moisturizing is a plus. Something with matching shampoo/conditioner would be nice, but not required.

I use Live Clean shampoo/conditioner/body wash with the Argan Oil.

I finally got around to going to a bra shop for a fitting.

I've been buying 34C/D bras from Target for YEARS.

Turns out I'm actually a 32E. The tshirt I wore in looked SO MUCH BETTER on the way out with this new bra.

Had this conversation at work today with a lady whose college aged child I tutor.

"X is doing so much better in his class, we'd love to throw you a little thank you dinner! Your boyfriend could come as well!"
"Oh he's in japan and really that's not necessary.."
"Why is he in Japan?"
"Oh for work"
"What does he do?"
"He's a marine"
".. oh.. I never really took you for one of those girls... honey but you're so smart. Well I've got to run dear!"

WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?!

Ugh so now I feel stupid for being upset. Like who cares what this lady thinks?! I'm smart enough to tutor her idiot of a son. (he really isn't an idiot, he is just an athlete that nobody really took the time to teach because he could always play) and I am incredibly happy with my boyfriend. Happier than I've been in any relationship to date.

but nobody has ever really roundaboutly called me stupid before.. or called me "one of those girls"

It's stupid that I'm upset but I am.
like there is this huge "people who date military people" culture that I know nothing about and everyone else is judging and I just.. I dunno.

Sorry if this is the wrong thread I just figured it was a girly thing.
