You can pick up a set of the acne-free line if you want a comparable routine with store bought products. i find it funny that people want to follow his regimen but not his products. There's a saying that says anything worth doing is worth doing right.
Acne-Free is certainly not comparable to Dan's regimen, and such suggestions are unhelpful to those who are seeking information about the regimen.

No store products are comparable to Dan's products - that's the point. I think it's very helpful.
You said acne free line was comparable which it is not and then say in another post there are no comparable products. Huh?

Comparable routine... I never said comparable products.
what's the difference?

People want to do Dan's routine - i.e. follow his steps - but they don't want to buy the products that make his regimen work.
As the above poster noted, Eucerin would probably be my choice for a "store" brand. They used to have an acne line that was great. They discontinued it years ago. I've tried a couple of their moisturizers since then and wasn't as pleased, but I do believe Eucerin tries to put in less cloggers. I never tried Dan's new moisturizer. The old one was runny but didn't break me out.
I use Lumiplexion and have for over 20 years. I was fortunate to find it when I was going through acne and fortunate that her business went online when it came time for my daughters. The original name of the business was Acne Treatment Center. Not sure when the name changed, but it's been the same owner and same products since I was 19. Great, great stuff and all acne-friendly.

btw, acne-free products don't have a moisturizing component so they still aren't a comparable routine.

Doesn't Dan have a $5 shipping plan for regular shipments?

The one thing I haven't been able to find was the gel based BP, only creams which is a bummer.

I cant afford it..

While we feel that Dan's products are exceptional and the best bang for your buck, you can get results with alternate products if you can find appropriate ones.

as for moisturizer i use Neutrogena - Oil free moisture- combination skin. best moisturizer i've ever use! won't clog pores and wont leave ur face dry and wrinkled.
hope this helps.. i was struggling to find alternatives for dan's product too in the beginning,i thought if i use other products than dan's it would be less effective and the result would be slow. But after been on the regimen for just 5 weeks, using these products, i'm proud to say tht i'm clear ! with just 1 cyst acne remaining(before tht i hv 3-4 and TONNESS of blackheads and whiteheads tht just kip on developing into big ones).
i'd say products DOES NOT play a big role for getting clear in this regimen, rather than your habit and attitude towards it. you can never get clear even if u hv the BEST products formulated in hand and u take it for granted. eg picking and skipping bp as you think tht products will do ALL the work for you. With tht i'd say you're just wasting ur money and time.
