What Regimen Supplies Would You Recommend To Canadians?

4 posts in this topic

Hi, I live in Vancouver and I want to try out Dan's acne regimen but the shipping really discourages me from going with this option. In my case, what are some affordable in-store products for Canadians that you would recommend? Right now I use the following combination but it is not doing well.

Cleanser: ESSENTIALS Foaming Facial Cleanser Sensitive Skin

  • Works really well and doesn't dehydrate my skin significantly. I think this is the only product that I bought right.
Benzoyl Peroxide: Benzagel® Spot On
  • This is the only 2.5% I could find in Vancouver, but considering the amount you get for the price it's pretty expensive I also doubt the effectiveness of this product because everytime I use this gel I get really obvious red marks on my face and skin peeling.
Moisturiser: CLEAN & CLEAR® ESSENTIALS Dual Action Moisturizer
  • This moisturiser has caused some breakouts now and then and it's just not enough for my skin. I can apply this twice on the same area on my face but my skin will still get dry after a while. Also, I don't think this moisturiser do well when it's used with Benzagel® Spot On.

The cleanser and the BP seem like fine alternatives, but when I did the regimen I used the Dual Action moisturiser and it failed to hydrate my skin enough. I flaked like a...bleep.

Try find a non-medicated moisturiser for the regimen. Something really gentle and a purpose to moisturise and hydrate, not to treat acne.

Thank you so much for the reply. I'll try to find a better moisturizer but it's really hard to find a decent one in stores. By the way, I forgot to mention I have eczema and dry, sensitive skin. In this case, would greasy moisturizer be a good choice?
