SINGAPORE SUPPLIES

157 posts in this topic

Nope, my sister was on roaccutane before tho, she got it from a doctor in upp thomson, it sells bellow 10 bucks from what she says but no idea how many you get. I don't think you can get accutane cheap tho, doctors have to prescribe you, so even if you can get it at a low price you still have to go for consultation which means $$.

Oh cool :) you should check it out then. My skin isn't flaking anymore so i wouldn't need jojoba oil. I'll probably try to find an AHA product for my scarring instead once my acne clears up. :)

finally new people :) i think the regimen is working wonders, usually my skin would be this gloriously clear before i wake up to see a few more pimples and i feel like cursing. :wall: hahaha.

espcially when its exam time now, stresss! yet there are no breakouts -touchwood-

im not sure but you can always visit the dermatologist at national skin center/ or any other hospital that has a dermatology section, can check online

BUT, the consultation price is :naughty:

so you better goto polyclinic tell them about your acne problem and they would give this useless cream and anti biotics and usually you can ask for a referral letter so that your visit is cheaper :D

should be on hiatus for awhile as i mentioned exams are coming :( will be back after that!~

Any S'poreans on Accutane? Where can I get cheap one? I got it from my GP damn exp man...sighs..

hey i was on accutane,

i went to NSC. you can try getting a referral and going there too. but pray that you get a good doctor. some of the docs chuck medicine at you which isn't going to maintain your skin in the long run :X

...Am I interrupting something here? Haha! I'm from SG too.

Trust me, ordering from Dan is quite possibly the best and cheapest thing you can do. The NOTS(Neutrogena On The Spot) gives you 0.75 ounces, I think, and that's hardly enough for what the regimen calls for. If you do some basic maths, ordering the BP from Dan(the 16 ounce one) is cheaper even with shipping cost. I actually had to do that to convince my mum to order things online. xD

If it's still too expensive, there are other Singaporeans ordering from Dan, so you can order with them to place a bulk order, which is cheaper to ship. Of course, you'll have to meet up with them face to face in order to get the products(since the post office will only deliver to one address and all)... And there's the matter of getting ripped off, so it's quite risky imo.

I was on the regimen for about half a year before I stopped. I now only need to use the BP/Salicylic Acid occasionally to keep my skin clear. After acne, you'll still have hyperpigmentation to take care of though.

The jojoba oil in Singapore is way freakin' expensive, so don't bother trying to get it. It's more often than not mixed with some other ingredients too. I haven't seen any shop selling pure jojoba oil the time I've been shopping for facial products. A salesgirl at Body Shop told me that they discontinued the jojoba oil for the aloe vera line, so meh.

Cool :) nah, of course you're not.

I guess, but since benzac is working well for me, i'll just stick to it atm. Very affordable too.

Hyper pigmentation is fine, it'll fade away with time, plus i'll prolly try to find an AHA product once ance clears up, so it'll help a lil. Plus i don't expect a totally clear skin, at least until i finished my service :D Puberty would be gone by then, and who knows? Maybe puberty is what causing my acne! :)

Hi. I'm new to this site (just discovered it around today hahaha) and seeing the good news abound this site, I decide to give it a go. And I might as well since I tried nearly everything but nothing really helps me with my acne.

The problem though is getting the products. Are there any Singaporeans in here whom would do a mass order from Dan's site? I would really be indebted to you. Otherwise, I guess I just have to stick to the recommended alternatives although 13 bucks for the On the Spot Neutrogena treatment doesn't seem good :S

Cheers and good luck to everyone!

I am using Niks products and it cleared me up a lot! If you're looking for aha products, Niks salon has them. I bought the glycol (gycolic acid/aha) for around 60 dollars and it was a 10% one. Now I "upgraded" to 12%. It's located at midpoint orchard, opposite somerset mrt station! The toner is my favourite..it has 5% glycolic acid and 2% salicylic(bha).

Hello (: I'm new to this site. Found it interesting as i can't find solution to clear my pimples.

I'm from Singapore too!

Not that i can find another alternative but just glad to find a Singaporean here too. What regiments did you guys follow?

I can't even use Neutrogena. I tried once and when i stop using it, i break out badly. Now i use a bar soap, stop using it today because i just read in the forum that it contain sodium cocoate -.-" Oxy-10 works for me though but i need to find a good facial wash. Any recommendation? I use Olay white radiance but it seems like it had no effect at all to lighten up my acne scars. I feel like it's hard to find a moisturizers here.

Hello! The regimen should work well if you're following the steps, unless you're allergic to something in neutrogena on the spot. But the main ingred is BP and oxy10 has it too, so you can find another brand i guess. I'm using Benzac which is available in guardian, try not to use a 10% solution, mayb why you broke out was because the excessive drying causes irritation. Try a 2.5% with a suitable moisturizer. Also, when you use BP you don't want to use a very drying face wash because of the oil, BP itself will reduce oil on your face significantly. During the regimen do not wash your face more then 2 times a day, this was where i spotted my mistake at first. And give it time, BP might seem to worsen your skin during the initial 1-2 weeks, but it should get better after the first month. I use clean and clear foam wash, its gentle and goes well with the regimen, you should check out the recommended products in Dans list or other peoples, but you know how singapore have really limited supplies.

DKR is really a great way to get started on your journey to clear skin, but too bad it didn't work for me. Although I need to mention, BP prolong the healing of red marks.

However, less is more. There are a lot of alternatives on this forum, so check around.

Exactly. Things in singapore are really limited. I wash my more then 2 times too, Kane. Hahaha! but after i read Dan's regimens. I can see the results that my pimples are clearing fast. Although the feeling of oily skin is irritating. I just wish i could buy Dan's product. Too bad nobody i know owns a credit card.

Trust me Fad, wash only two times, preferably every 12 hours. I know it feels icky and gross for the first few days, but you'll realize your skin stops producing as much oil. Washing excessively actually makes your skin produce more oil.

I don't even need to dab my face with a tissue every few hours anymore :)

this board is still aliveeeee :boohoo:

yes using benzac 2.5 is the same as benzoyl peroxide, as i have done my research and concluded thats the only cheapest alternative to ordering dan's products

i have to go back to the derm every 6 months, each time would be around $50 for consultation plus medication

p/s skin is so much smoother, only left with the horrendous scars (i have no idea where they came from, since i dont squeeze!)

Hi again! Yeah, same here :( if you got anything that can help scars, please please please tell me :) I don't squeeze either btw and i still get them too.

I know the AHA helps scars, but we still cant find a product here that has AHA. I know that skin regenerates itself every 6 months, so time is also a key factor here too. If you are really desperate, chemical skin peels do get rid of scars, but I would say dont go for facials, as they are really a waste of money.

We can go check out Nik's products at town according to an earlier poster :) Maybe we can go check it out together sometimes, i'm pretty shy about these stuff cause imma male :redface: so i end up not really clear in what products i should use.

yeah hahaa. Sorry for late post, got really busy lately. Im left with scars that are beginning to fade, and that occasional pimple. I find that it helps to blot your face with tissue paper

Since im sure my face produces enough oil to fry an egg, i can use 5 sheets of blotting paper at a time :wall:

Cant believe it, some relatives have even told me that my acne has improved so much :)
