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.

So here are my top 3 picks for homemade DIY toners, for acne and oily skin.

For way too long, I’ve had problems with my hair: annoying, flaky dandruff, bone-dry frizz and oily grossness were all things I figured were simply my life. I’d accepted my fate! But since going vegan, I’ve been re-assessing a lot of things in my life, including my beauty and hair care products. Davroe was a vegan brand that kept coming up time and time again. So, I bit the bullet, I paid the hefty price, and I’m actually glad I did.

Benzoyl peroxide. If you’ve ever had acne, there’s a fair chance you’ve heard of the stuff. Used all over the world for decades, it’s an absolute powerhouse ingredient that kicks acne bacteria’s butt.¬†Loads of brands use it as a key ingredient, such as Acne.Org. Their ‘Treatment‘ is brilliant, and it works. If you need to slap a lot of BP all over your mug then it’s the way to go. Problem is… it’s online. Cue Benzac AC.
