Been using OCM for a few months...

My skin has felt and looked great. I was in a rush the other day and just washed my makeup off with soap. Guess what? I woke up the next day with not 1 or 2 but 3 pimples. Pimples? I haven't had one in a long, long time. No more soap for me.

    But a pimple wouldn't show up the next day. It takes time for one to actually show up on your skin.

    Eh, you're probably right. I'm still not using soap again. ;) I am still baffled as to why I'd break out. My skin is usually very clear. I never broke out as a teenager except for one during my period.

    Bumps may not be pimples--they could be some type of sensitive skin reaction. I can use a product my skin doesn't like on my hair and will have hives various places on my body in a few hours and sporadically for days to come. My skin loves OCM.

    Have you ever seen pictures of me as a teen? I had to suffer through a bowl-type curly cut. That was worse than acne! :afro:

    lol, got you beat...

    I had a cropped hair cut too, with frizz prone poof that pretended to be hair... AND acne that's still hounding me at 26 :P

    Those hair cuts though... I'm kind of with you. they're at the very least AS bad, if not worse than the acne...

    Now I have these red bumps on my back, legs, and my face. I definitely think it's a reaction to the soap. No whitehead, just red itchy bumps. :angry7:
