for the younger folk here, this probably means sleeping at friends' houses, but i've recently been seeing a guy and spending quite a bit of time at his place. i don't want to be covered in bp and unable to touch anything while i'm over there, but i don't want to break out!

Now I just do the regimen in the sink at night when I stay with her because we've been together for 4 years, but that is my suggestion if this is a new relationship and you just feel weird about doing it in front of him at his house.

i can't really help with the second question, as i quit the regimen a while ago.

I'm reactivating this topic as it is once again a looming question in my life. How do you use the back regimen without: taking a bunch of time in someone's bathroom, not being able to be touched for 10-15 min, and potentially bleaching their sheets? Not to mention, how do you find time for the regimen when starting a new relationship? Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated.
How much time are you spending on the regimen? I've never found the regimen to be so time consuming that it actually interfered with a new relationship or anything else in my life really. And in regards to staying over at someone's house, if it's an irregular thing (like once a week) then I usually just skip the BP and use AHA+ instead. Otherwise, I've just told my boyfriends that I don't want my lotion to bleach their pillow and brought my own. No big deal really.

i'm currently experimenting with continuing dan's bp gel on my left while trying a bp foam on my right. i worry that it will be less effective, but i'm keeping an open mind. i'm currently getting over a break out from a particularly intense yoga class (trying not to let that keep me from going back, but i hesitate to work out because of this), but once that's under control it should be easier to see what's working best.

it seems that with the bp, it goes from being very wet to just kind of wet and sticky fairly quickly, but then it stays slightly wet and sticky for a LONG time
(rubbing it in completely and using just one and a half pumps on either side of my entire back took about 10 minutes to dry to the point where it did not feel sticky, and, even then, my shirt stuck to it in places)

plus, it seems acnefree all day control foam is no longer being sold in stores, only online! i hope it is not discontinued
