Cleanser - GREAT! Treatment - WORKS! Moisturizer - A FLOP !:(... I recommend but pick and choose
on 03/01/2014
40's, Asian. Ive always followed a very simple maintenance routine which ive used for over 25 years (oatmeal soap, deep cleanser, toner, dermalite (day), Vit C serum (night)..... until 12 mos ago, I started having (stress) acne.<br/>Tried a LOT of products (US, Asia, European brands).<br/>Came across acne.org, and bought the regimen. I followed regimen procedure but was not effective so i modified.<br/>CLEANSER: IT WORKS (for me). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED<br/>Evening:<br/>Wet face with warm water.<br/>1 pump (size of a dollop) on my palm, apply directly on problem areas, then work out a lather. I do this for about 60 seconds.<br/>Repeat. (so im soaping my face twice)<br/>Pat dry (sometimes is "scrub" a tiny just to get a feeling of "freshness")<br/>Morning:<br/>Same as evening routine but only wash once.<br/>BENZOYL PEROXIDE TREATMENT.<br/>If i have active acne (or feel like one is coming on), I use Acne.org TREATMENT benzoyl (ONLY ON AFFECTED AREAS) , after allowing my face to dry 5 minutes.<br/>If no active acne, after pat dry, APPLY AURA CACIA GRAPESEED OIL all over my face.<br/>MOISTURIZER.<br/>Causes BREAKOUTS!! - would NOT recommend.<br/>JOJOBA OIL - breakouts<br/>With CLEANSER, BP TREATMENT (only if acne onset), GRAPESEED OIL, my skin has "calmed" down... zits dry....<br/>KEEP IT SIMPLE.
IT WORKS... WITH MODIFICATONS

Im in my 40's, Asian, NEVER had zits in my entire life. 12 mos ago, started to have stress acne. Ive tried these cleansers: Neutorgena, cetaphil, Boots Botanics, oatmeal soap. These didnt do much for my acne (forehead, chin, a couple on my cheeks).<br/>I followed CLEANSER instruction of Acne.org, but only saw a light improvement.<br/>I modified:<br/>Evening:<br/>Wet face with warm water.<br/>1 pump (size of a dollop) on my palm, apply directly on problem areas, then work out a lather. I do this for about 60 seconds.<br/>Repeat.
