Hello. I was wondering if anyone on here who has tried the Acne.org products has sensitive and/or allergy prone skin? And if so, what is your experience with the product?

I have skin allergies that tend to result in red, itchy rashes and hives when I use anything that isn't hypoallergenic. I've been using hypoallergenic neutrogena products for the last year with decent success and recently purchased their on-the-spot treatment (which is not hypoallergenic) as a tester before seriously considering the acne.org products. I've been using the spot treatment for over a month now on the regime listed in this website and it has left me clearer than I've been in years. Unfortunately it has also left a recurring flaky/itchy rash on one side of my face, and since I can't seem to get the rash to go away permanently it looks like I am going to have to discontinue use of Neutrogena's spot treatment.

I am considering buying the Acne.org Regimen Kit Plus but wanted to get some more info before making such a hefty purchase. I did read that the products are fragrance free and non-comodegenic, which is very helpful, but without more info from people with similar skin problems I am having a difficult time making a decision about the purchase.

Hi Vanessa, I'm afraid I can't help you with the alergy part of your question as I don't have any skin allergies, but I can tell you that a red itchy rash-like symptom is quite a normal reaction to BP in the early stages. Usually it means that you've used too much BP too early before your skin is used to it. It could also be caused (in your case) by an allergic reaction. Im helpful huh? ;)

I have very sensitive skin, and need to be very careful what i put on it.... and Dans BP product is ok for me (haven't tried any other of his products though, as I'm from the UK and postage costs are expensive).

Everyone is different however, so best thing is to try it on a small area first (even on your arm or something).

As mentioned above, BP does cause flaky/itchy skin if you use too much of it without first letting your skin get accustomed to it..Follow Dans advice and only use a pea sized amount to begin with. your skin will get used to it and you can then start to slowly increase the dosage. The great thing about Dans BP product is that it is very watery/thin, so a small amount can easily be spread around your entire face.

Hope this helps.

Instructions for sensitive skin. http://www.acne.org/faq.html#sensitive

Unless you have an allergy to a specific ingredient, you should be ok if you go very slowly with it. Jojoba oil is also very soothing to the skin if your skin tends to get red and irritated. It can really make a big difference when used with The Regimen.
