I had clear skin my entire life until suddenly my skin broke out when I turned 30. I have no idea what caused my hormone imbalance but it gave me mild to moderate adult acne that got worse over time from trying all different medication: over-the-counter and prescription drugs, both topical and oral plus some facial peels. My skin is sensitive that Retin-A burned my skin and just causes even more breakout. My acne got severe to the point that I was candidate for Accutane treatment. But in the course of several trial and error with my dermatologist, I also incurred Stevens Johnson, an extreme bad allergic reaction to antibiotic that contained sulfa so Accutane was removed from my options. While I recovered from the rashes, with most scars already fading or have already faded, my acne remained unstoppable. I had some successes but my acne always came back with a vengeance around my menstrual cycle. I was desperate and I know I am partly to blame because I tend to over use topical treatments and wash my face excessively. My skin got extremely dry with uneven skin tone because of hyper pigmentation. How does one treat acne and dry skin at the same time anyway? Acne.org Regimen is far more superior that the other ones I've tried without any adverse reaction. I got my natural skin tone and texture back! No more dry and dark patchy skin! And it's clearing up my acne incredibly well! It has been just two months since I tried the free sample. The one and only one complain I have is that I broke out initially with cystic pimples on my neck. BUT they go away faster now and does not leave any scar when I know for a fact that my skin is prone to scarring. I think everything in this kit is essential to finally conquering this acne problem. The cleanser is mild and non-irritating; best of all, no over-powering scent. The benzoyl peroxide is truly effective. You can see the zit reduce it's size and fade away completely in a couple of days or at worst, a week. I noticed that healing time got even shorter once my skin have adjusted to the treatment. Last but not the least, the moisturizer, a miracle trapped in a pump! Actually, I don't know which part of this set exactly made the most positive difference in my skin. I just know that used together and in their prescribed amount and frequency lead to great improvement. I am 33 now and I don't ever want to worry about pimples again. This seems to be the regimen that works best and I don't mind keeping it as long as it keeps my acne under control. I've seen major clearing happened already in as little as two months so I am feeling positive about it. I highly recommend. If I hadn't used other medication or gone to dermatologists and used just this, I probably have saved a lot of time and money. I also recommend in addition to using this kit properly to also use raw organic honey as face mask every now and then to remove the dry flakey skin the benzoyl peroxide might cause. Overall great product!
I tried doxocycline, minocycline, and a bunch of other over the counter products which did absolutely nothing. My acne was at its worst and i was desperate to find the quickest solution to fixing my face. I then tried the Regimen by Acne.org and I can't be much happier! The week by week guide they gave me(its also on the website) was accurate and by 2 months I had zero pimples left on my face. The only thing I have now 3 almost 4 months into it is the red acne scars on my face which really arnt that bad and are gradeually fading away. This system works way better then Proactiv or any of that over the counter stuff, I thought that because Proactiv didnt work for me that the regimen wouldnt work for me either as it seems to be the same ingredients. Proactiv is garbage and I have no idea what they are putting in that stuff but it certainly isnt what is in the Regimen. If you want a clear face as bad as I did then put 100% effort into making sure you are staying fully commited to the Regimen and I promise you you will get the results you want. P.S. my favorite product is the AHA. I put it on after the Benzoyl Peroxide Treatment and it seems to make my scars disappear faster although it does make your face slightly more red the day after but I dont mind that.
Getting use to this product takes time, but it was worth the wait. I have been using this product since Fall 2012 and have little to no skin issues now. As maintenance, I only need to use it once a day and can even skip a day here or there. However, if I completely stop then it starts to come back. I used Accutane many years ago and due to never ending stress I started to break out again, but thanks to the Regimen I have been able to control it and it cost less than the $65 a month I was spending on a prescription from my Dermatologists.
I had a horrible experience with adult onset acne around the time that I turned 26, the worst acne I've ever had in my entire life. My face was covered in painful, horrible clusters of zits that made me want to cry from the pain and embarrassment.
When one zit popped up, I dreaded the next few weeks because I knew more were coming and it would destroy that part of my face.
I went to a dermatologist and was prescribed antibiotics, but it was a twice-a-day prescription drug plus a topical treatment that cost too much money.
I tried Proactiv and it made it worse
I tried the acne.org regimen with their products, and in just a few months my face is perfectly clear and not a single break out at all. My family and friends have been complimenting me on how beautiful my face looks, because for the past year and a half all they have seen is the red angry patches all over my skin.
This stuff really works, especially if you're an adult and need something gentle.
My husband bought me this due to all positive reviews. I'm so conscious about my acne though I only have moderate acne less than 10 perhaps. I tried it as instructed but after few days my acne worsen and I never had these much acne in my entire life. Looks horrible! I stopped using it! Now, I need to find way to heal all the acne that this product brought in.
I don't recommend this product, it's not for everybody. WORST PRODUCT ever!
I've been on the regimen for 10 months, my skin is completely clear. I used 5% because where I live I can't find 2.5% and it works fine. Sometimes I might get 1 pimple but nothing really bad and it will clear up fast. I notice the only time I get any is when I veer off the regimen slightly.
Here's my acne story.
I had always suffered from moderate to severe acne on my face, back and chest most of my young adult life (11-15 yrs). At the age of 16 with the help of Dianette and various creams I was able to have clear-ish skin with mild break outs from time to time. Recently (at 21 nearly 22) I had an operation and became so low and ill my acne came back with vengeance. I was covered - Neck, back, face, chest and even all over my shoulders and I started to become really depressed.
I was trying so many things to try and clear it up including holistic treatments (which really dont make much difference), everything seemed to irritate my skin further and make it worse UNTIL I read up properly about the regimen and began to follow the step by step process.
I am only 4 days in and have seen a HUGE improvement. My spots are all drying over and beginning to heel and all the small bumps which covered my neck and forehead are slowly disappearing. I am hoping that in a couple of weeks I may be nearly back to normal (fingers crossed). I'm only seeing a tiny improvement on my chest, but I am only 4 days in and expect to see some results in the near future.
Please give this regimen a go if you are suffering - its well worth it!
ok so i tried this product and it changed my whole life because it got rid of all my acne. I kept using it normally but later on and later, my skin got really dry the end of the year i started getting rashes and all that. my face has never went back to the same as it was before, i could not stop thinking about my acne and why this product did this to me. then i found out i was allergic to the wash cleanser . I'm so mad because i loved this product because the regimen changed my life its the best!! but later on it gets my face dry and i have irritation that did not go away and its so hard to find something that worked as good as this.
Got the regimen, followed it precisely from drying wait time to towel patting and treatment measurements etc. 3 weeks later this is the worst my skin has been in its history. I had mild mostly hormonal acne that was superficial and healed quickly but I was in the silly pursuit of no-pimple skin. I know have these deep pimples that are purple/dark (no I did not touch/bruise them). My skin is terrible and I regret ever touching the regimen, it's been over weeks and I can still feel these deep painful bumps. I hate this so much :'( I wish I never found the regimen
