Hey guys,


I recently found this awesome website and forum and really wanted to get started on the regimen, since I think the shipping costs for me to order from this website would be way too much(although I would love to get the acne.org products), because they have to be shipped to the Netherlands.

Right now I only have the cleanser(Cetaphil gentle cleanser) and am looking for advice on a good BP and moisturizer to buy here in Europe, I have had acne for 5 years now(19 years old) and even though it has improved over the years I still have moderate acne. I hope to hear from you guys and get started on this regimen asap.


Thanks in advance :]

I agree, shipping outside the US is ridiculously expensive. I bet it's the main reason why people are hesitant to order the Acne.org products. With that said, if you add up all the costs, I don't think it'll be that much more expensive than products you buy locally. There aren't really any alternatives in The Netherlands, the lowest percentage BP you can get here is 5% ("samenwerkende apothekers" brand, for example). You could of course try and ask your local pharmacy if they're willing to prepare a 2.5% solution for you and see how much that'll cost you. As for a moisturizer, check out this page for alternative products and see if you can find them in a drugstore (keep in mind that the names/types are probably different here): http://www.acne.org/...-guide.inc.html


If you decide to buy the Acne.org products, after all, just give Customs a call and ask about declaring the goods yourself. That should save you the costs (about € 15.00) that the courier will charge you for declaring them. Have a look at this page to see how much you're allowed to import and what you have to pay: http://www.belasting..._bereken_ik_dat.

Good luck!
