Since all of the recent low ratings of this book have been made by people who apparently haven't actually read it (they're just angered by Ms LaViolette's expert testimony at the Jodi Arias trial) I decided I would join the fun by tossing in an unjustified 5 (I have'nt read it either). An aside to Amazon: I'm suprised this type of thing can occur on a website that began business by selling BOOKS-Ratings should be limited to people that have actually purchased the book from this site. A hands-off policy shoud apply to your recent acqusition of goodreads.com, however.
I've been holding off on writing this review because I was positive my face would adjust to the Acne.org Regmin and would go back to the way it was, if not worse, when I started using these products.
There aren't enough good things I can say about Acne.org. For the last 18 years of my life, I'm currently 28, I've had awful pale skin: extremely prone to redness (to the point where people think I have a rash if I just quickly scratch an itch), very oily skin all over my face except around my eyes which are always dry, and horribly prone to break outs which most heavily affected around my mouth,jaw and forehead. "Time of the month" didn't matter, I was always broken out, though I'm sure hormones and stress were some of the biggest factors. I've seen dermatologists (biggest waste of money), tried over the counter remedy soaps (unscented, antibacterial, sensitive, etc- nothing), Proactiv (everything got 2x worse), Clarsonic and light treatment. Those last two showed the best improvement, but my skin only got about 20% better.
Because everything I tried in the past, I thought Acne.org would just be more of the same. The reason I decided to give it a go was their website. They had a lot of information/explanations I'd never seen before and structure around their program. They also talk about alternative drugstore options which I'd never seen before. This was the best decision I ever made. My face as actually been clear about 5 months now with only 1 pimple I can actually recall. For me that's completely unheard of. Every time my mom sees me says she can't believe how good my face looks and she was always the first to point out how bad my skin looked, which only made me a lot more insecure. (What happened to your face? Doesn't that hurt?). To hear my mom now tell me how good it looks whenever she sees me is AMAZING.
There are a few things that are critical to keep in mind with these products which all go back to things they mention on their website: follow their steps and suggestions! 1- Be really gentle with your skin while using this stuff. For me this was particularly important at the beginning month to month and a half, which is the hardest part of starting this product. Like just about all other acne treatments you have to give it a month or two because your skin is purging. Which leads to 2: your skin will get worse before it gets better and I've yet to come across anyone say differently. I personally had a huge problem with flaking and dryness (which looks even worse when you put make up on top of it). I contribute some of I felt was excessive dryness to the fact that I was taking Pantothenic Acid capsules which are also good for acne. To help with the dryness and even out my skin tone I started using Acne.org AHA Lotion. And that brings me to my final point; 3- start off SLOW with SMALL amounts of Treament and AHA (if you decide to use it) because it is easy to use too much and feel like your face is going to burn off. you need to work up to the larger amounts. You can always add a little more to your face if you didn't get enough out of the tube/bottle at first, but once you put too much of this stuff on it feels near impossible to cool off your face even after trying to wash it off.
Now that I'm several months into using the products, I feel like I can be a little more flexible in my routine. The only thing I'm really thinking about changing is to maybe find a thicker moisturizer for winter. But I do like that their moisturize has a yellow tinge since it helps neutralize redness.
Like my title says: my miracle product. I refuse to stop using this for a long time and I tell everyone I can about this stuff. Bravo Acne.org.
Renewing family ties with her long lost sister, Caitlyn Whelan discovers there's a whole a hidden world of paranormal beings - and that she is related to a fair number of them including her sister Shanna's children and vamp hubby - when Caitlyn meets the gorgeous vamp members of Shanna's extended Romatech 'family'. But while vamps are great to look at, it is the sultry shifter Carlos Pantera who really gets Caitlyn's heart pumping and throws her libido into overdrive. Unfortunately, the sexy cat is holding out on her and denying their overwhelming attraction because Carlos is on a mission to find a were-mate to help bolster the numbers of his endangered species and he has a whole lot of hidden anguish from the loss of his family and his clan to keep him committed to his quest.
I absolutely loved Eat Prey Love, it was funny, very steamy and very satisfying. Caitlyn is such an upbeat heroine and I just loved her psycholinguistic talent - she can instantly learn languages she hears spoken. I thought it was great that even though she is being trained for her new job with MacKay Security and Investigations, Caitlyn doesn't suddenly morph into kitt-butt-woman. Instead, Caitlyn stays absolutely hopeless in the fighting department - and there is a humorous running gag throughout the book that goes along with that.
Carlos is wonderfully tormented by his attraction to the woman he just can't have. It may seem a bit perverse, but I really liked that Caitlyn doesn't give up on the love that she wants and that she turns the thumbscrews on Carlos - flirting and teasing to keep the sensual tension high. This makes the back and forth banter between the pair quite entertaining. I was glad that there was no quick and easy happily ever after for the pair - it was well worth the wait, and oh so satisfying when Caitlyn finally wore Carlos down. I also found it a refreshing a change of pace that Caitlyn knew up front about Carlos' nature, instead of it being the secret the hero just can't figure out how to spill as in many of Sparks' other books.
In the background, Sparks brings back most of our old favorites from previous books which is always fun, exposes a bit more of Caitlyn's sister Shanna's background - and gives us a reason to hate their father even more. And Sparks also adds to her cast in both the ally and villain departments - however, the series' illusive uber-villain is notably absent in this one.
So I loved Eat Prey Love, which was my favorite in Spark's series in a while, and found that Carlos was a nice change of pace from Sparks' kilted and fangy heroes. And even though I was lucky enough to be given an advance reading copy of Eat Prey Love - there is no question that I would have purchased this if I hadn't been so lucky and Eat Prey Love would have been worth every penny.
It amazes me how much the Fat Packs have become. I needed another life die and some more booster packs, it just worked out that I got both in the Fat Pack for a little less than I would have paid for the individual items. I actually got two planeswalkers in the kit and a number of nifty rares.
