Gradually adding the amount of BP I use, since the problems mentioned in the regimen (dryness, redness, itchiness) didn't really happen. Maybe a little redness, but I can't tell if that's my acne or the effect of BP.
The effect I'm seeing is that some pimples that were forming up are going down really quickly, and that makes me happy! I used to use some Kiehl's products, including the "Acne Blemish Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment". That thing has some effect on making pimples disappear but doesn't always work. Plus a little tube (1 oz) cost $30, gosh! There was a bottle of blue water called Blue Herbal Lotion from Kiehl's which had some effect as well. However 2-3 Kiehl's product would cost my as much as the whole Regimen Kit Plus... this is ridiculous.
Not criticizing Kiehl's, they do have some really nice and affordable products like the Midnight Recovery Concentrate (the little dark blue bottle), #1 Lip Balm, their SPF 50 sunscreen (not greasy at all!), Amino Acid Shampoo and Conditioner (so good!). Anyway, I guess my point is that Kiehl's is a great skincare brand, but their acne products are EXPENSIVE and aren't effective enough. I haven't tried other acne-focused brand like Proactiv since I didn't hear good reviews about it. I saw how people here complain Proactiv is a total rip-off though
To conclude, BP is working in terms of flatening out pimples that are forming. My skin appear smoother without any other skincare product, this is good. However I do get A LOT OF WHITEHEAD after I wash my face. I tried REALLY hard not to pick them or pull them all one by one since that would break the regimen! They disappear after I apply BP though, so not too bad.
Third day, already seen effects
