So I started trying other alternatives, starting with Neutrogena On-the-Spot, I liked that the drying time was cut way down compared to the DKR BP, but it was not as effective on my skin. So I tried using the Equate brand of Proactiv's Reparing Lotion. The smell is awful and the results are nothing to write home about. It is nearly impossible to find a drugstore BP that is 2.5% and actually effective. So my question to you all is, if you're on "The Regimen" but not the DKR, what the hell do you use for BP?!
I'm feeling very upset with my skin right now.

Peaceexlove, are you using the Cetaphil bar? I was reading up on their liquid cleanser and it cotained sodiun laureth sulphate, a comedogenic ingredient. How are you finding it?
Currently I am using the liquid cleanser (the one for all skin types) and have been using it for a good three months at least. I like the way it leaves my skin feeling (not dry), but it's not the most amazing cleanser out there. I'm not sure what else to use though at this point.
I would really love to go to a derm, but currently I do not have insurance nor the money to pay out of pocket for a dermotologist. Thank you kindly for your recommendations though. Hope accutane is doing you well!
Have you tried Epiduo? (adapalene x Benzyl Peroxide) ? Its 2.5% BP and .1% Adapalene. The adapalene is mild topical retinoid, My skin couldn't handle it but perhaps yours can. Oh and it was super cheap (with insurance coverage) about 35$ for a healthy tube full - which is great because your only supposed to use like a pea-sized amount (its apparently that effective). Oh and if that stuff is too strong then you can try the Adapalane by itself (cost 5$ with insurance). Good luck !
