Has Anyone Used Dan's Cleanser & Cerave's Cleanser?

4 posts in this topic

For years I've been on the Acne.org regimen but I finally made a switch to a dermatologist and have stopped using his products altogether except for the cleanser. My dermatologist recommanded CeraVe's Hydrating Cleanser and gave me a sample which I haven't used just yet.

Has anyone used Dan's cleanser then CeraVe? I'd like to know if there is a huge difference and if I should go ahead and just switch to CeraVe.

Did you take Dan's cleanser in for your derm to look at? My doctor (Dr Skin as I like to call him :) ) was happy for me to continue to use the acne.org cleanser once he looked at the ingredients.

Its seems a shame to stop using a product you have already purchased. Makes more sense in changing once you have run out (as long as your derm is happy with that).


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

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.

No, I didn't take it but I told her the kind I used on the first visit and she asked if it was a mild cleanser and if it had salicylic acid in it. I told her it was mild and that it didn't have that in it, she said it was fine.

I am running out which is why I'm wondering if I should change it up a bit and see how it goes. I don't really have another appointment til another few months but I'll ask next time I suppose. I just wanted to see everyones elses experiences with it who had also used Dan's.

Don't bother with a cleanser. I don't use one and I have clear skin. I jus tuse benzoyl peroxide and a moisturizer.


THE ACNE CHALLENGE!!!
