Just a query, I have ordered and will be starting the regimen in a few days. Does anyone who is on the regimen have a lot of whiteheads? I need some advise on what to expect. Will it clear or is it too mild to be using BP on?

Thanks for the advise! Good luck with getting clear :)

I read some posts from people who have been on the regimen saying they broke out with loads of whiteheads and it kinda scared me off so I'm really torn on what to do! :/

I have found that benzoyl peroxide type regimens do great to prevent whiteheads.  However, active whiteheads is more of a toss up.  

 

One thing benzoyl peroxide does not do well on in my case is inflamed nodule and cystic acne.   It doesn't seem to do much at all.

Thanks! Ill be starting tonight, will let you know how it goes...

Have you been following the regimen as closely as it says? Maybe that's a factor that's been slowing your clearing process?
