Before I post, I want to repeat a little of what I already wrote, which is, I am not claiming that this product is a cure, and there is no way for me to know if this will work for you, or even if it will work for anyone at all. However, the product has worked miracles for me, and judging by how comparable I have found my condition and my story to others with EC, I would have to say that the results I am experiencing would also have to be comparable.
So, I took some time to find you kittens some ebay deals. Here are two auctions selling the product for $49.99 with free shipping:
It's not the same value as buying the $50 tube, but if you don't want to commit to a product you are unsure of, then 10 sample packs is a good place to start.
If you are using the product the same way I use it, and the way I recommend to use it, you will probably use up the packs in 2-3 weeks as you can expect to finish a pack every other day. Especially as to start, I would recommend really piling this stuff on.
I wouldn't recommend the 5packer because they will disappear on you wuick, plus the auction for 10 packs is just $3 more. Each to his own, as they say.
So, get out there and get the product and get it on your lips. I would apply it after you have completed a cycle and exfoliated the lips to "raw." This way you can start with a clean slate. When you're applying be sure to target the area that borders the vermilion and the inside of your mouth, even crossing that border slightly away from the vermilion. I think that method to be an important part of the process. Another thing, I don't think it would hurt to go get some lemons and cold compress with it. It will really attack that top layer and you will be peeling within a day. I am not sure if it is neccesary to do, but it is exactly what I did the day preceding my application of the Pro Therapy. I am not sure what contribution it made to my condition of present, if any contribution at all. I had also swabbed my lips with a Q-tip dipped in Hydrogen Peroxide from the medicine cabinet. Again, I am unsure of any contribution that was made by this, but it was a combination of research that led me to believe that both the lemon and Hydrogen Peroxide are very effective in killing off bacterias which contribute to the peeling process.
I am convinced that the Pro Therapy solution is the sole reason for the condition of my lips, as during the times of my waiting for the next shipment of the product my lips would begin to dry out. But I did not want to leave off any information. You can read and make your own determination.
So, that's my 2 cents. Also, look at all the posts that have succeeded this post. They amount to nothing but social chatter. That has been my biggest gripe with this forum. People start new posts that contribute nothing, and then the posts that actually deal with possible treatments get pushed to the background, and eventually divided into multiple posts, so a reader must go back multiple pages to get the full picture. It happened with Otex, Tretinoin, and I fear will happen with Pro Therapy.
To those of you that continue to post above this one, just know that I will be replying within this post, and within this post only.
