Icky Skin

So, I have god awful skin.  Always have and quite honestly I'm so sick of all the commercials out there claiming they can fix your skin just by trying their product.  First and foremost, I HATE PROACTIVE.  I finally was able to afford Proactive when I was 19 years old.  My skin wasn't great but it was still better than it was from back in high school.  I finally had the money and I decide to give it a try.  I even tried it for the full 60 days.  Yea, right.  My skin was awful.  I've never had such disgusting looking skin.  I was so upset and it took me YEARS to get it back under control.  Now recently because of stress, age (I'm not that old, 25) and life in general my skin started breaking out again.  This time, I'm going to try Burt's Bees products.  Since I'm trying to go all natural in what I eat and use (read the cancer post), I decided to go with these guys.  You can get them most any where and they're not super expensive.  I'm giving it thirty days (maybe sixty) and I'll let everyone know how it works. Here are the products I'm using: 
The spot treatment is 100% natural, the lotion is 100% natural, the scrub is 100% natural and the cleanser is 99.4% natural.  Not to bad right? Also my skin feels clean after using these products.  It doesn't feel tight or dry.  In evening I use the scrub and spot treatment, my skin doesn't even feel remotely dry so I skip the lotion.  (I have oily skin usually so I prefer to skip moisturizers at night.)  Then in the morning I use the cleanser and lotion.

Sorry, I didn't realize my skin was so bad till I took a picture.  Well, let's hope Burt's comes through.
