I've read Spectrogel/Oxy something/Cetaphil 5% BP... I'm not sure what to try. Any tips?
Oh random question... is it bad to use SPF 15 Moisturizer at night? Should I get a different one for the night time?

I'm also looking for a new regime now that I need to find a job, I've been using cetaphil cleanser and spf 15 moisturizer and those definitely aren't working at all... I've been reading on this site and it seems like the Spectro Cleanser + Spectro BP + Spectro Hydracare are good? I guess I am going to get that as Im not too sure where else to look for a new regime. If anyone else has any other suggestions they would be appreciated...Thanks!

Spectro cleanser, on the other hand, was alright. A bit thicker than Dan's cleanser, but I think it was mild.
Are you not considering buying from Dan?

Cleanser: Clean & Clear, Foaming Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin
BP: Solugel4 (4%BP) only available at Shoppers Drug Mart ($18) or Superstore($12), no prescription needed
Moisturizer: Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer
And for the really flakey days buy Desert Essence Jojoba oil, also available at Superstore.
Been using this combination, but following all Dan's rules precisely and I've only ever been this clear when I was on accutane. I think you'll have great luck with this combo, haven't tried Dan's products yet, but plan to!
ps.. spectro gel has never ever worked for me.

After cleansing my face at night I wait about 15 minutes and then I apply Differin (adapalene) 0.1% gel. I was prescribed this by my doctor. Used long term, it really helps to control acne break outs, but it must be used on a regular basis to maintain it's effectiveness. It has pretty good reviews on here from what I've read and my experience with it has been positive, so you might want to look into that. When I first started out on it, it didn't dry out my skin like BP can.
If I do get a zit? I apply Dan's 2.5% BP on it in the morning. Then at night I apply Spectro AcneCare Vanishing Lotion to the blemish and it's usually gone within two days. Don't use this stuff as regular BP though, it turns to a white paste so you can only use it at night for spot treatment, which it's really good for. It's available at Shoppers.
My regular moisturizer is Dan's moisturizer. Before that I used the Spectro moisturizer but as Lucia C said, it doesn't seem to moisturize well, plus I thought it was really greasy so I stuck to Dan's. The best alternative to Dan's available in Canada is Cetaphil.
