We have many bottles still to fill up, so we'll have to wait until they're filled and sold if and when we wanted to make a swtich back to tubes, but I want to really listen to you guys to see what you prefer. Please weigh in.

Both are great, but I have always preferred tubes over bottles.

I feel a force I've never felt before
I don't want to fight it anymore
Feelings so strong can't be ignored
I burst out - I'm transformed


Rising up, shaking it off
The yesterday dreary
Graceful and strong, No more forlorn
Today's a jubilee
Don't be surprised
This change is my design
I can't hold it down I've just got to soar
And laugh in the face that is vulture law

I think this poll should be edited - the only thing in tubes before was BP. I think everything else is fine in the pump bottles, I just think the BP would be better off in the old tube.

Also, what are you planning on putting the jojoba oil in? I can't see it in a tube or a pump bottle...

One can never be 100% sure acne has gone while on medications that are keeping us clear. The only way to find out is the hard way and that is to stop treatment.

I believe the jojoba oil is going in a clear round bottle with a flip-top cap.

My opinion: BP in tubes, cleanser in a pump bottle, and moisturizer in either.

Tangentially related: what kind of packing are you using for the 10% glycolic acid lotion? I think a tube or a squirt bottle (not a pump bottle) would be great for that.
Keeping me clear, morning and night: Acne.org Cleanser, Acne.org Jojoba Oil after cleansing but before BP all over face, 1 1/2 pumps of Acne.org benzoyl peroxide, Acne.org moisturizer (morning only), Banana Boat Baby Sunblock SPF 50 (morning only), JASON 5000 IU Vitamin E Revitalizing Moisturizing Cream around eyes only, Acne.org AHA+ Acne.org Salicylic Acid+ beta version (night only)<br />
<br />

Not here as often anymore, so for the timeliest advice, post your questions on the forums for the whole community to help out with rather than contacting me directly :)

Clear? Interesting...Okay though, the flip-top's what I was hoping.

I would think either a flip-top (like the jojoba) or a tube like the BP. I'm attracted to the flip-top because that's probably what I'm used to in my AHA spot treatment, having used Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion. However, as a spot treatment, I think a tube would make the most sense. I mean, that is what most spot treatment comes in and I think it would be easiest to dispense for that kind of stuff. IMO.

BP definitely in tubes, cleanser with a pump lid, and moisturizer I'm not fussy about. Otherwise I'll end up wasting a lot of BP (knowing me). Or instead of a tube, you could just have a flip-cap instead? Either way it would be easier to control than a pump lid. Just sayin'. lol.gif I guess it would depend on how big the bottle was...

Out of curiosity, if you switched back to using tubes for the BP, what is the biggest size it would be available in? biggrin.gif

ideally, the tube will result in much less wastage else bp would be stuck all along the pump when it's about to finish. i liked the tube a lot, including the design on it. i can imagine how terribly unwieldy a 16oz tube would be though!

Really pleased though that you are now selling travel sizes biggrin.gif

Tubes, at least for the BP. Cleanser and moisturizer can stay pump.

I agree with CAKD above.

Current regimen:

  • Cleanse: Dan's cleanser (2 pumps)
  • Disinfect: Dan's BP (1 finger)
  • Protect: Day: Olay Complete Defense Daily UV Moisturizer SPF 30, Sensitive Skin (3 pumps); Night: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion SPF 15 (3 pumps)

Acne history: Acne battler since 1988. I've had really severe acne when I was a teen where there was not one square inch of clear skin, with tonnes of cysts. That's calmed down considerably, but in my late 30s, I still tend toward minimally inflammatory spots on my forehead and around my nose.

Totally agree. The BP is what we all wish to have back in the tube. The Cleanser and Moisturizer are fine in pump bottles... although... I wouldn't mind having them in tubes as well.

Personally, I like both. However, the best thing about the bottles before (e.g., the cleanser) was that it came with both a pump and a flip top! That way, you had a choice, and I thought that was the best "customer first" thing I had seen in a long time. Because, while it cost more to do, it showed a real concern for meeting the needs of the consumer.

For BP: I think you should keep both. Use the bottles for larger sizes of BP
(8 oz and 16 oz) and tubes for the smaller (2 oz and 4 oz). But, go back to including both the pump and flip tops with the bottles.

For Cleanser: Keep the nice large bottles and then provide the travel size.

For Moisturizer: I still like the 8 oz bottle with the choice of flip top or pump.

AHA: Can't wait to see what it comes in!

Thanks Dan!

The Bottles are fine for the cleanser and moisturizer but the B.P should keep the tubes.

I definitely like the tubes better, just not in something like a 16oz. As many others have said, the blue tube design is very nice and professional looking. I think it gives the product a better image to new buyers.

Something I've been wondering too, does anyone know if theres a difference in shipping cost between shipping the 2 4oz tubes, and one 8oz pump? I'm too lazy to re-register at the store...
