I have tried many different routes to try and solve my acne and honestly was even skeptic about paying almost 50$ for this treatment, but.... Let me tell this treatment is not only gentle on my skin but very effective. I purchased my first treatment kit on Oct 23, and by Jan 9 my skin has almost completely changed for the better.
I been wanting to write a review for awhile now and since this is my second year with this regimen I think it's safe to say my skin has cleared up. Yay. This product is amazing and I'm so greatful to Dan. But I don't want this review to be me telling you how great this regimen is because then it'll be way waaaay too long so I wanna tell you how I use this regimen. So I will say this once. I had STRICTLY followed the directions for the face wash, BP, and moisturizer for the the first couple of months using this. After my skin was used to the BP I had introduced AHA(Short for Glycolic acid) and jojoba oil to my routine. Before I explain how I use AHA I think it's safe to use the jojoba oil earlier in the regimen to help with irritation and flakiness. Back to the AHA I only use it at night and I use it with the moisturizer. After washing and BP I mix one pump of moisturizer with same amount of AHA and apply to face as usual. Then in the morning after washing and BP I use one and a half pump of moisturizer and mix it with 5 drops of jojoba oil. And that's how I use the regimen. It's worked wonders and my skin and my face feels so soft. i had very severe acne and oily skin and to top it off sensitive skin. It took a painfully long time for my skin to clear up 2 years to be exact but hey you do what you have to do and be patient and I also realize you need to relax. I've notice now that the only reason I'll get a pimple is if I stress out. So I always take some time in my day to relax and enjoy some time to myself. I know its hard but forget about what people think and just focus on other things in your life just wake up follow your usual routine and follow the regimen and go on with your day. Your skin will clear up. Yes it'll take awhile well for me it did but I got there and you never know it might take you less than it did for me. Oh and try to restrain from touching your face too much. hope this help anyone and if your thinking about trying out this system don't wait any longer and get started and again because I can't say this enough BE patient don't freak out and give up on the first week because your skin got worse. It'll go down trust. That's just part of the process. It has to get worse to get better
I have never written a review for an acne product, but after using this regimen, I feel like I have to. I have never used a better product for acne and I tried a lot of things. The only thing that helped were antibiotics, but that is only a temporary solution. Another option was accutane but I refused to try it since it has tons of side effects. Now, I am glad that I didn't take it.
My acne was pretty severe and I've been using this regimen for almost 4 months and my skin is COMPLETELY clear. I still get a pimple here and there, but that doesn't bother me at all. At first, my skin was red and irritated but the redness eventually disappeared. I also added AHA to the regimen which also made a difference and it really helped with the flakiness.
So, if you haven't tried acne.org regimen yet, then I highly encourage you to try it. I was skeptical about this but it REALLY WORKS!! If you are unhappy about your skin (as I once was), it is definitely worth a try!
Before I purchased the Acne.org regimen my regimen consisted of applying Epiduo on my face in the morning and at night. Epiduo cleared my skin in 3 months. When I ran out of Epiduo I started looking for an alternative I could purchase because Epiduo is pricey. I didn't want my acne to come back and that's when I found Acne.org. I first found a review on youtube and her skin looked amazing! I found out many people had the same results and when I went on the website I discovered more people's stories. I was very optimistic and excited to try it. I used the regimen as directed for 3 months. I have now STOPPED this regimen because it has made my skin SO much worse. This regimen made me break out like crazy and once the breakout subsided I was left with so many dark and red acne marks. I've had trouble with acne marks before I started this regimen but I only had a few marks. Now because of this regimen I have 30+ marks that aren't going away anytime soon. I am very disappointed and so much more insecure and upset about my skin than before. My skin makes me want to cry because of how dark and lasting these marks are. I WOULD NOT GO ON THIS REGIMEN IF YOU GET MARKS EASILY. I just wish I never even bought this product.
In my 2nd week of using this regimen ....In my first week i had horrible breakout ,my skin itched and was flaky around my lips and chin but i didn't freak out because i read these might occur....my skin is clearing now with slight itching , am optimistic it will work.
Now my issue is i have super oily skin ,applying the moisturizer makes my skin extra oily
Can i do without the moisturizer?
NB: I use the jojoba oil as my make up remover
I have been using this product for about a week but my face hasnt been drying up at all should i be worried ? How will i kno its working ?
I used the acne.org regimen for about a year and a half. When I first started using it, I was SOOOO happy! It cleared my skin within a month. My face was perfect. After continuous use though, my face started getting very flaky, red, and irritated. The chemicals in acne.org were reacting very badly with my face. Acne.org is a great product, but it caused a permanent redness on my face due to irritation. If I were to use makeup, that would be fine, but I don't use makeup. People always asked me if I had a sunburn because my face was bright red and my body was white. I wish this product didn't cause my face to react this way because I still would have been using it.
I've used the acne.org regimen for 5 years. I first started having problems with acne when I left for college, at which point I started using proactiv. I have fairly sensitive, combination skin. I'm also very fair so any blemishes or redness are extremely obvious. I mostly deal with chronic dryness around my eyes and oily skin on my forehead, nose, and chin. At first proactiv dried me out to a painful degree, eventually cleared up my skin completely for a few months, and then made my skin insanely oily. I switched to this regimen after doing some research and after the adjustment period, I was really, really happy with it. I can't say that my skin has been completely blemish-free the entire 5 years, but that's also partially a function of what I eat, how hydrated I am, stress, etc. Generally speaking, this has kept my issues in check and completely manageable, with a completely clear face at least 50% of the time (college was a VERY stressful time for me, so bear that in mind).
It's really important to understand what kind of skin you have when picking products, and it so happens that benzoyl peroxide is what my skin needs. That may not be true for others so be mindful of what you need before starting this. However, it seems like this system does work for a really broad spectrum of acne issues and skin types. Highly recommend giving it a shot before moving on to more expensive options, and especially for people who have used proactiv and, like myself, learned the hard way that it is way too harsh for your skin.
Towards the end of the year in 2015, I don't know why my skin decided to break out so bad (college finals and stress?) but I remember crying to myself in the mirror from how "horrid" I looked. I tried accutane in high school twice and somehow keep breaking out. On top of that I've used proactive, witch hazel, face masks, tree oil (which if you are using please stop. I was advised to do so by my dermatologist since she said it increases your breakouts), etc. I got to the point where I started watching makeup tutorials on ways to cover up horrible acne.
I was advised by a friend that this was a great product and actually works unlike proactive. I gave it a shot, and I will never use anything else. My skin literally looks amazing. I started to notice I maintained and cleared up a good 90% of my acne in a month, after 3 months my skin looked great to a point where I wanted to help treat the scars. I've been using this for around 6 months, and yes I still have scars where my old acne was (definitely faded a good amount), and I break out a little here and there, but I only get 1 pimple at a time now versus 20. I don't wear foundation anymore with the need to "cover up" and "hide" everything. I wear foundation because I finally feel flawless in it. I stopped covering my hair on my face too because there is no longer anything to hide. For the first time in a long time, I feel confident and comfortable in my own skin.
So to whoever is reading and is debating whether or not they should pay so much money for face wash, if you've been in my shoes it is worth every cent. You should never have to feel scared and insecure about your skin. It's painful to be that person who has all the acne in a room of clear skin folks. Give this a try, stick to the directions, and I promise you'll get to a point where you don't feel the need to pick at your beautiful face ever again.
I'm 100% satisfied with this product.
