T's a great moisturizer with a lot of skin barrier ingredients. Many can use it no problem, but it does contain two ingredients very high up in the list that are very comedogenic, so some people can't.

I can't use it, but wish I could: it's cheap and sold everywhere. It's worth a try.

Please only PM me if it's something that cannot be talked about on the thread or is highly personal. This way, everyone benefits.

I can't use it. Instantly blocked my pores.

After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo.  I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month.  I can live with that smile.png

I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry.  In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.

CeraVe am and pm specific moisturizers for face are the BEST facial moisturizers I have ever used. Seriously...the BEST. I have cystic acne and also have very sensitive skin. Doesn't irritate, not heavy, does not worsen or cause acne, keeps moisture locked in. It's just the best! I can go on and on about how great it is.
