Alternative Products In The Philippines

6 posts in this topic

Hello fellow pinoys and pinays out there. Ok so i've been suffering from acne and as a result of lots and lots of research, I've finally found "The Regimen" from acne.org and by Dan Kern.

Since I (and a lot of filipinos out there i suppose) couldn't get access to Dan's products due to my location and the terrible shipping fees, I decided to look for alternative products for The Regimen that can be found in my location.

For the gentle cleanser:

Johnson's Head-To-Toe Baby Wash

For the treatment (Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% Strength):

I have two options. PanOxyl and Benzac (both 2.5%) so which is better?

For the moisturizer:

N/A (No product proven effective yet)

Please, i really need your suggestions and opinions. I appreciate everything. :)

I think Cetaphil or Physiogel Cream are okay for moisturizer, but they are quite expensive. I tried Benzac, its a bit irritating for me. If you have relatives abroad who can get you Dan's product, I highly recommend na magpadala ka sa kanila. I find them really effective and worth the price.

Oh, i found out that CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion or Cream works pretty well. But which of the two is better? And do they sell these products in the Philippines? Meron ba ito sa local stores and drugstores natin like Mercury and Watsons? Thanks.

I haven't seen any Watsons or Mercury drugs selling Cerave. Luckily we have a small stall here in Cebu that sells many US products...Cerave moisturizer included. For the BP, I really haven't found any 2.5% BP. I order mine online from Sulit.com.ph
