I'm not as frugal as @RJM62 but c'mon. Went to my dermatologist for my annual skin test. Very fair skin. No weird moles... yeah. She doesn't like my roseca (sp?) I said I can't afford what you wanted me to get last year ($84 with insurance for some face cream) This year she says I'll give you some samples to try and see what you think. Ok. So a tablet and then some cream (aczone) yeah it's clearing up. Looked on goodrx.com to see a ballpark price for it. $600 for the cream and $300 for thirty day supply of tablets. Yeah my face isn't worth $1000. Maybe I'll be able to get samples for a year.
