my skincare routine

i have a special skincare routine that i follow. this 2009, it seems that my zits are growing and growing in numbers. they are like multiplying especially on my forehead, which sucks btw. so finally, just this monday, me and my brother (who seems to experience what i'm also experiencing) went to our dermatologist to get are pimples pricked. it was awful. it hurts so bad! especially when the doctor "painted" -- ok, i know it's not the right term but she used a brush! it's the only term i could think of! -- our face with some product i'm not sure of, and it hurt so bad! it was painful and itchy! especially when she sprayed some neutralizer! but you know, after some time, i was relieved. after the pricking process was done, she medicated me with some skincare products. and this are the products i'm showing you. :)

Hi, I was prescribed by my derma the same sunscreen that you have (i.e. Avene Emulsion with SPF50) after my acne surgery. I was wondering as to your derma's selling price for it. Thanks.
