I waited for ~6 months before reviewing this product, and now I can safely say: WOW, IT ACTUALLY WORKS! Let me give you a little background: I've had acne for almost 20 years and had tried all the treatments known to man, such as salicylic acid, birth control pills, Zynerit, glycolic acid, antibiotics. I visited many dermatologists, one of them even prescribed Roacuttane, which I took for more than 6 months. None of the treatments worked unfortunately (Zynerit sort of did something there, but didn't clear me up properly; Roacuttane and pills only made things worse). I tried at some point Brevoxyl (also benzoyl peroxide) but it didn't work for me at the time: now I realize I didn't give it enough time.
So eventually I decided to try the 'miracle' acne.org regimen, although it looked too good to be true. At first nothing happened, but after around 4 months my face cleared up completely. So if you are starting this regimen remember to give it time, even if it takes a few months.
My skin after once applied turned burned and red, and gives me a lot of itching, I don't know that I'm allergic of this product or my skin just doesn't "like" of it, because my skin stayed so much sensitive because of this product...That's normal?!
It helps at first but then my skin turns too sensitive, irritated, itchy, flaky, red and burning feeling. I can't use any products with BP in it (e.g. Epiduo). I have never had before sensitive skin, "thanks" to this product my skin has changed and now I have to choose carefully products I'm using on my face.
I literally tried everything to treat my acne in the last 10 years, but only this product helped. I even tried benzoyl peroxide before prescribed by my dermatologist (it was combined with antibiotics), but my skin reacted terrible to it that time, no matter what I tried. I have really sensitive skin and not only acne but also eczema sometimes, so even my daily skincare is a bit complicated. I read that this treatment is not suitable for my extremely sensitive skin, and I asked my dermatologist and she literally forbid me to try it. But I tried anyway and it took a bit longer for my skin to adjust, but after more than 3 months of suffering from itching and terrible flaking suddenly all irritation disappeared and my skin started to look better than ever in my life!
I've been using this product for 6 months now and i'm so so satisfied. I've tried many products for my acne, Accutane, creams, antibiotics... spent a lot of money in the hope of getting rid of my acne. I really lost hope specially that i am 26.
When i used this treatment for the first time my skin was so dry and peeling, i couldn't put any foundation on it because it was looking horrible but 2 months and a half i started seeing results. Now i just can say that my skin is much much better and i only have scars.
People just need to be patient while using this product and they will be astonished at how the skin will look after 6 months.
I really recommend it.
First I have a mild ance type and I have been using this since november 2015 and stop using in december because it's make my skin so flakly even when i'm using moisterizer. after that I find another treatment which is tea tree oil . In my pinion I think tea tree oil is great but it didn't push the whitehead out. it's just keep clogging my pore and leave your skin clear. so I retuen to my BP again but after waiting paiently and try not to touch my skin even I'm feel itchy. my acne is gone in 2 month. Now my skin look clearer and leave a bit of scar(it take to time to fade out) cause i pick it. Note* you have to find your best moisterizer that fit for you like no pore clogging or do really moisture your skin and the last one you have to wash your face correctly when you apply your cleansing 1) wet your face 2) create thick lather and then gently touch your face follow your hair line 3) wash your face without touching your face. then after that gently patting your face then apply your skin care. :] Hope this review help you out.
This gel really does work the only things you need are patience & time. I've used benzoyl peroxide a good portion of my life (15-22 years old). Last year I decided to give my skin a break from it since it was soooo clear. I had baby skin and would get compliments every single day for how soft my skin looked & was. About 3 to 4 months after I stopped using benzoyl peroxide my skin FLIPPED out. I had a ton of tiny whiteheads everywhere and then started with gigantic cysts all over. I tried using natural products, sulphur masks, different face washes even retin-A but my face was crazy. I knew deep down that the benzoyl really works so I purchased a tube this October and patiently waited for results. What I noticed:
My skin took about one month to get back into the benzoyl peroxide (as it was no longer used to it)
I was extremely flaky and my face burned for the first month
Starting with less product during the first month helps
Also wanted to share what products I am using along side the benzoyl peroxide treatment which I use twice a day (morning & night):
Makeup remover (BEST EVER): Bioderma Sensitive Skin SENSIBIO H2O
Cleanser (morning): Spectro Gel (Purple one without fragrance)
Cleanser (night): Dior Snow Cleanser White Reveal Gentle Foaming
Cream (day & night): Bioderma Atoderm PP Baume (SUPER MOISTURIZING + hypoallergenic)
Serum for scarring (day & night + this is AMAZING): Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum
Makeup (best for acne prone skin): BareMinerals Original (not the matte one)
I have also been using the Clarisonic day and night as I find it helps with the dryness.
I am almost 3 full months in and my skin is great! I still get a few here and there but it is not nearly as bad as it was when the initial freakout happened. Some of these products are expensive BUT the quality of the products are like no other. These products combined with the benzoyl peroxide will bring you clear skin, it really just takes time. Changing your diet and intaking lots of fruits and veggies will also speed up the process. Water Water Water.
Good luck :)
You would think all BPs would be the same...but every other benzoyl peroxide I have used leaves my skin raw and blistered without reducing breakouts. I only write reviews when I love a product and the acne.org BP is so great for me! I can apply this every night without irritation/major dryness (an impossible feat with any other brand of BP) and best of all it clears up breakouts 100%. I have been using this for about a year now in conjunction with any face wash and the cetaphil moisturising lotion.
I should add that I don't get cystic pimples anymore since taking roaccutane (a.k.a. accutane) but my skin will still have the occasional breakout without this product. I never tried this BP prior to roaccutane either but I really wish I had...that drug was not easy to take!
I starded using benzoyl peroxide three years ago, . After one year with the other products, i can say i have better results in my skin, this bennefits very much, i can see the light at the end of the tunnel, finally.... im so freakin' happy, love you acne.org
