I been using the regimen for one month already and my acne is getting worse. My skin got very dry and started to peel a lot . It looks ugly when i try to cover up the dryness and peeling. I reduced the application to using it every other day hope it works. I have dry skin as well so maybe this will not work for me either. Im so turned off by this product that made my skin worse than it already was.
The Acne regimen is an absolute miracle. I only been on the regiment for a little over a month now, and my skin looks better than it ever has. My confidence has been restored and i don't feel ashamed about my skin anymore. I didn't have severe acne but i did have hyper pigmentation and it is slowly fading away . I feel as if I don't have to cover my face up with makeup anymore, and that truly makes me happy. Finding this acne regimen is such a blessing to me and I am so thankful because i'm able to feel pretty again.
I follow the regimen diligently and I use AHA. My acne is just as bad as it was before, plus all my scars last way longer. It's very aggravating, because Dan guarantees that it will work for you if you follow the steps. I had complete faith in this because of that, and it was incredibly depressing when I got no results.
Wow!! I've only used this stuff for one week and totally convinced! Best product ever! Kinda strong, but who cars, its actually working:,) So happy, can't wait to see furthermore results. Thanks acne.org!
I knew when I was buying the product that it would dry out my skin and make it red for the first couple of weeks, but it dried out my skin to the point that I was constantly in pain and my acne was actually getting worse. If you have sensitive skin, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.
I've tried every product under the sun including two rounds of Accutane, acne always came back. This regimen is the BEST REGIMEN I've ever came across. You follow the exact directions, and week after week you WILL notice a difference. I'm really happy with this regimen. I feel normal. I don't have to put a pound of make up to hide my skin, let alone feeling like hiding from the world. I'm so glad I gave this a chance. It's been a year and a half and this is a part of my DAILY routine. Just a heads up - GET WHITE PILLOW CASES! It will bleach any colored sheets & pillow cases.. but clear skin is SO worth it. Remember there is NO cure for acne - not even Accutane - the key to clearer skin is consistency, patience, and FAITH that it will get better. I hope that all of my fellow acne suffers get clear because I know how it can take over your life. You will feel so free when it goes away!
I know loads of people on here have had wonderful success with the regimen, but I thought I'd chip in my two cents to say that I, personally, did not.... I followed the rules down to a tee, added jojoba oil to my moisturisers, built up the bp slowly, etc. etc. but even after a year on the regimen my skin still couldn't handle using bp twice a day. It was just constantly bright red, dry, irritated and sore to the point where I could barely move it most of the time. Not a pleasant experience at all, it was unbearable and my skin felt utterly destroyed. Then to make matters even worse when I came off it I had the worst breakout of my life with horrendously severe cystic acne all over my face. My conclusion is that it might be great for some people, but it's definitely not suitable for people with sensitive skin like me.
I purchased the product for my teenager who has moderate to severe acne. Five weeks into the regimen and it is working well. However, his skin is flaking a lot and I have recently purchased another month's supply and added the Jojoba oil which I hope will be of significant benefit. Having said that, I am really displeased with your "free" shipping service. This is the second order and each time it took a full TEN (10) days to get here! And you're not shipping from Manila or Mumbai! It's coming from California to Florida, and the timeframe should be within 3-5 days max. Horrible shipping times. To make matters worse, it was left outside my house at 9:30 PM where it rained overnight and the box was wet when we saw it at 8 AM. Nobody rang the bell. I guess that is too much effort for FedEx??!!
Okay so I've been using this regimen for about 11 weeks now. I had suffered from mild acne from ages 13-17. My freshman year of college my skin got clear and I had no scars or anything. But this summer I broke out while on vacation pretty badly with a lot of whiteheads and zits, and nothing seemed to really help heal it so I started this regimen. It burned and made my face red and broke me out a bit more for the first week. But after my skin began to clear up. The only thing is this regimen makes it to where every time I have a zit it leaves behind a scar that lingers forever. I rarely pick or touch my face. I get a zit here and there still but they fade quickly, but scar. I've been using toners and dark spot corrector serums to help speed the process and they've helped a bit. All in all this regimen works well in clearing up your acne quickly, but I'm afraid to see what happens if I choose to stop following it. Also if you skip out on moisturizing once or twice your skin will dry out and get all flaky and gross instantly. I have oily skin and despite that the benzoyl peroxide makes it extremely dry. If anyone has any new tips for the hyperpigmentation that would be great. I have tried derma rolling(which worked before I was on this regimen but the one time I did it with the regimen I had a bad reaction, you can't do it unless you skip the BP, which leads you to break out), potatoes, lemons, exfoliation, dark spot serums, toners, pretty much everything. Oh yeah btw don't use the glycolic acid until a month later and don't over use it because it will burn your skin if you use it excessively! (I don't wear makeup ever, I eat healthily, I only drink water, I workout 5-6 times a week) it took me years to finally get clear skin and although I'm glad that the zits are gone, the fact that I have all this hyperpigmentation is pretty aggravating and definitely diminishes my self-esteem.
I've had acne since i was thirteen and i've bought the regimen, proactiv, acnefree, etc many times. I would say these products are for the average joe with decent skin. It will not eliminate acne but it may help keep it at bay for those who are in the beginning stages. Not great for those who have struggled with it for quite sometime as you'll need to address it in a different way (diet, sleep, hormonal etc). So although this did help a little, it didn't prevent the inevitable. The odds were stacked against this regimen for me as acne runs in my fathers side of the family. Look into what causes acne and you'll better understand. None the less, great for the average joe who still has hope to preventing the acne from getting worse.
