This is overall a good moisturizer, but I have several problems. First off, two pumps doesn't do a great job at moisturizing skin with a finger's length worth of benzoyl peroxide on it. Second, if you use more than two pumps, it could take up to an hour for the moisturizer to absorb into the skin. What am I supposed to do - get up at 4 a.m. when I start work at 8 a.m.? Finally, I know this is minor, but it's still annoying - almost every time I dispense some moisturizer, the pump spits out a dried up piece.
Just a quick warning for anyone that is thinking about purchasing this product....it contains oil. Jojoba oil that is. IN MY EXPERIENCE.. this oil clogged the hell out of my pores (although it claims not to....) I was getting small bumps and white heads on areas I have NOT gotten acne in years! Also, I had one huge cystic pimple on my cheek which is very ODD because I have taken Accutane and haven't gotten one cystic pimple in the past 3 years..... I was SO afraid that this product was going to give me cystic acne again but thankfully I stopped using it. My skin is slowly going back to normal (because I now use Clean & Clear) although I still have some scars. This lotion is horrible for my skin I will never use it again. Also, a lot of people said that this product dried out on their skin very quick but I experienced the opposite. This lotion was so oily on me (very moisturized) to the point where my foundation would move around and not set on my face. Nothing happened in coincidence...this lotion does clog and caused a nightmare on my face. If anyone DOES plan on trying it out...buy yourself the travel size before wasting your money and test the product for a good two weeks. Sometimes I feel like they purposely do this so it counteracts with the Benzoyl Peroxide which makes us keep using both and relying on both...just my thoughts.
I've been using the acne.org regiment for 3 months now. My acne has gotten sooooo much better since then but my skin feels grows, oily and flakey all the time. I can barley move my face because when i do it just cracks and looks horrible. I wish that the moisturizer was as good as the treatment but it just seems to bring the quality of the whole regimen down.
It glides across your skin perfectly, goes on top of the BP perfectly, and smells great. Hasn't directly broke me out as far as I know and it does take some time to sink in. I only recommend JoJoba oil if you find yourself drying up with flakes not long after the application. Now for the downside, which is causing me to look for another moisturiser to use in the regimen. It gives you a tawny pigmentation on your face and considering most people with acne are usually advised to avoid too much sun - your face is discoloured and doesn't correspond with your neck and body. If this wasn't yellow, it would be one of the best moisturiser's for acne prone skins, to ever be created. Does it shine? Yes. Does it take a while to stop being noticeable on your skin? Yes. But it is also comforting and calming for your skin? Definitely. I doubt Dan, the guru of acne, but create a moisturiser that causes acne, despite the fact everybody has different skin, I'd ignore the other unnecessarily negative reviews. I'd say, 8/10, this will work for the average acne sufferer, if you can put up with the colouring (or maybe your skin doesn't even react the same way, or you have a natural similar pigment).
I had my acne under control, using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, BP 2.5%, Olay Moisturizing lotion for Sensitive Skin. Then about 2 days ago I decided to bust out my unopened Acne.org moisturizer. Put the moisturizer on at night, and the next day a few white heads appeared (chin, side of face). I was surprised considering it was advertised for acne users. In addition, it is not a good consistency because it was too watery.
I will be continuing with experimentation of moisturizers. My next up is Vanicream lite lotion.
I can't believe that I'm saying this about an acne.org product, but... this stuff actually makes me break out. I'm very aware of my acne and this stuff gave me pimples in areas that I never break out in. It did a good job at taking care of flakes but waking up to small white heads every day isn't a good trade off.
Being that I've been using Acne.org products for almost 5 years now, I really wanted to like this moisturizer; but it just isn't a great product. This one needs help Dan...
I tried the trial version of this product. I just wasn't pleased enough to order any more of it. I think it left my skin looking oilier than I would have liked. On the plus side, it did not irritate my skin and seemed to be quite moisturizing. Currently, I'm using CeraVe moisturizing lotion instead and sometimes (at night) mix that with jojoba oil.
I've used Dan's moisturizer for about a month and it really pains me to give this product a low rating because The Regimen was a life saver for me at one point in my life when the old formula was in use. Dan is a saint, man. On paper, this moisturizer has everything an acne afflicted person would want. Unfortunately, just like with many things in life, this is NOT for everyone. In my experience, the jojoba oil caused my skin to gradually get worse and worse. I kept waking up to new acne almost every week. To add insult to injury, it did next to nothing hydrating my face even when I added more jojoba(BAD IDEA) and went up to 3 pumps. I'm not saying that this is a bad product, I'm just saying that it's bad for me specifically. If it works for you, awesome. If only Dan would make an oil-free version, I would go crazy with joy. I'm sure lots of you guys will. C, mon, Danny boy, hear us out a little bit.
