Ever since starting Accutane, I’ve been making an effort to keep you updated with my progress on YouTube. My Accutane results after 5 months of treatment surprise me each day. I’d like to give a full review with before and after images once I’ve completed my treatment, but I honestly don’t know when that will be! My dermatologist has told me I can’t stop until I have no spots for the entirety of a box, and judging by the cracker pimples I’ve had over the last couple of weeks, it’s definitely not this one.

I’m not completely sure what the overlap is like between my YouTube channel and my blog. If you’re following my acne update videos, then a lot of what I’m about to spill here won’t be news. You know how rough it’s been, especially the last month or so. You know my usual chipper personality took a punch to the gut over how severe my acne got. You know I reached the end of the line. Making the decision to go back on Accutane was deeply challenging on multiple levels. But I have to give myself one last chance.

I’M BACK. No, I didn’t stop blogging because it all got a bit too difficult. And I didn’t stop blogging because I got lazy (although, I have been living that potato life today, can’t even lie about that). I took a few weeks off due to going overseas, and while I should have been a bit more proactive and planned ahead, written a bunch of posts and scheduled the lot – I also had to make a choice. Work on my blog, or work on my YouTube? Well friends, take a guess which one won that battle?

I thought I’d be over this by now. And to be honest, for a little while, I was. Less than a year ago, my skin might have been scarred but I had absolutely no active acne, and I went outside without makeup on. And not just down to get the mail, I went shopping. Shopping without my mask on. I still felt self-conscious, red, raw, marked for life… but I felt confident enough, brave enough. But it was short lived; my acne returned, and reached a point I felt was even worse than my teenage years. Good God, what the hell is going on?!

Hey crew! It’s time to test some long-wearing makeup! I decided to film a long Get Ready With Me (GRWM) on my glossy, oily, acne prone skin, with some new makeup and lots of chats. But this is a BLOG, not a YouTube video! So now I’ve got a chance to go a bit more “in depth” with my feelings about these products. SPOILER ALERT: don’t waste your money on the concealer!
