I use Benzac ac 2.5% as well. It's the only great alternative I can get here in the Philippines. I am looking into ordering Dan's BP and having a friend from the US bring it home for me to lessen the cost of shipping.

 

I use Cetaphil as my cleanser and Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel as my moisturizer. I have been on this routine for a little over a month and my skin is feeling and looking so much better.

 

The first 3 weeks were the worst though, I wanted to quit so bad from all the BP side effects. It gets better though. :)


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png

Has anyone ever tried the Neutrogena "On-the-Spot" Acne Treatment to replace the Benzoyl Peroxide? I saw that is has 2.5% BP.

On the spot clumps and I was annoyed with the size it comes in.

Dan's BP clumped like crazy with my moisturizers. Nothing seemed to mix well with it.

I like proactiv's repair lotion as my BP. Doesn't clump at all. If your mal has a kiosk or proactiv vending machine, you can get the repair lotion separately.

Walmart's equate has a knockoff of it that is sold separately for $4, but it's too runny for my liking. Target has a proactiv knockoff as well, but the parts aren't sold separately.
