I use tretonin in 0.025% in the gel form. So how did you end up liking the Buff'd Minerals foundation? I like EDM Intensive as well, but I'm trying to break out into other lines.

I've heard rave reviews on Johnson and Johnson Purpose, but never tried it out personally. Is it like Cetaphil?

how much does that tretonin costs you? is it an over the counter product?

I like Buff'd coverage since I prefer medium to full ones, but I haven't worn it enough to judge if it's really my HG in terms of staying power, oil control, and possible irritation.

Tell me about 'branching out' LOL I've been crazily sampling so many, I had to redeem myself T_T and the Purpose cleanser, I really like it since it's so gentle yet effective. I was contemplating on choosing between Purpose or Cetaphil, but I chose Purpose since I've heard more negatives reviews about Cetaphil.

I never tried it so I can say anything, but I believe it's the same idea...a mild non-comedogenic cleanser which unfortunately *still* contains Sodium Laureth Sulfate.
