    Hombrew...then OS?


    Okay...

    I was lying in bed and thought of this last night when I looked over at my many bottles of sunblock

    Sunscreen has Octyl Sylicate in it..

    and sunscreen is waterproof and keeps the skin moist...

    What if I apply the homebrew and then 10 mins later put on my sunblock?

    The addition of the moisturizers/OS/waterproofness of the sunblock woud be able to get even more PH into the bloodstream...Correct?



    Sound crazy enough to work??

    I personally like OS in my transdermal..it does keep it moist longer. I know it is a debated ingredient, but I swear by the stuff.

    The reason sun screen has OS in it is becasue it is a UVB blocker. That all I have to say..hehehe. Talk to ya..

    I'm honestly not an expert, but either it'll do what you want it to, or it'll hinder absorption.

    Alright Gentlemen


    I put my 1-Test brew on about an hour ago, and then I just put the sunblock on that has OS in it....

    ....and where I applied it started to have a little bit of buning sensation on...

    which leads me to believe that more 1-Test is being absorbed into the skin...



    hehe

    Hmm. Looks like Chemo's idea might work, after all.

    Chemo's idea from quite a while back was to rub in some base gel a couple of hours after applying the hormones to get the stuff wet again, so that it'll start absorbing once more. The sunblock idea is yours.

    I started a new homebrew (see below) a couple of days ago to finish out my cutting cycle. I used 4 grams 1-test and 8 grams 4AD at 50mg/ml. I am applying 10ml twice a day.

    40% Iso
    10% DMSO
    10% PG
    10% Glyc
    10% OA
    10% OS
    10% D-Lim

    I have been getting no residue at all between applications. I tried to see if I could rub some PH residue off but I have not seen any. My skin stays a little "tacky" throughout the day.

    In fact, I even rubbed my finger over an application area a couple hours after application and then touched the corner of my eye. I had hardly any irritation in the eye. With the 1-test, I would expect a lot of irritation if I had a lot of 1-test left on my skin.

    ha...ha...ha....you actually tested to see if an irritaion of your eye would occur by touching? could have been a crazy mistake but uknow that. glad it didnt though. this my second day, and i walk around like i have two broken arms 1-2 hours after apps, to avoid any contact with the application area.

    Base gel isn't very expensive - why don't you guys use that instead? I'm trying it next cycle.

    I'm on my third day of T-1 and I'm noticing that the areas of application stay moist for a long time.  This is after rubbing it in for 20 minutes.  Eventually I have to throw a shirt on and head to work.  I hope that the majority of the good stuff is already absorbed and is not rubbing off on my shirt.  I have a bottle of the gel that I will be applying a half hour after the initial application in the effort to clean up any residue if there is any.  What I'm wondering is since my skin is already oily from the T-1 application, would a gel containing less of the moisturizing agents be a better idea?  Should my skin even be oily after application?

    I'm also noticing that my skin stays moist much longer than Avant's gels. I'm using it with fina right now and it doesn't seem to dry my skin at all. Its actually the opposite. I suppose this is better.

    I have always added 5%-10% OS to my homebrews and my skin stays soft throughout my cycles.

    wait about 1.5-2 hours to apply the lotion, because most of the absorption ocurrs within the first 1.5 hours or so and you want to get any that is left after that time period.
