Just wanted to post on here to answer my own question.... Aczone works! Took a million years for me to see a difference, but I stuck it out for 4+ months and I finally am getting the results that I want. Lest be known that I am only using Aczone now (not the other cream in my signature) and when I cut that out, I started to see results. Therefore my recommendation to anyone who wants to use Aczone is to use it for 3-4 months on it's own THEN judge whether or not to add another product. I regret it soooo much that I immediately started using two products at once... could've saved myself a lot of turmoil.


AM Regimen:

Cleanse face with La Roche Posay Effaclar

Apply Aczone

Moisturize with Sheseido Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer

 

PM Regimen:

Cleanse face with La Roche Posay Effaclar

Apply Aczone

Moisturize with Sheseido Oil-Free Mattifying Moisturizer

Spot Treat with Clearisil Adult Acne Tinted Spot Treatment (always)

 

 

I now do not follow a vitamin regimen and have expanded my eating to include almost all food groups (excluding lactose/dairy). Since I made this change my face has CLEARED UP!

Minimalism people, trust me it works. Develop a skin care regimen, stick to it, and you will see results. All the rest (diet, exercise, supplements) didn't work for me. Less is more.

 

Status: 98% Clear... Plus a nice bunch of superficial scarring -.-

I used Aczone for about 4 months. While it did definitely reduce the amount and size of the acne I had (I would say I had mild to moderate acne before) it never got me to the point where I was acne-free. About a month ago it completely stopped working and my acne came back just as bad as it was before I started using Aczone. So now I'm going to be starting Accutane in a few weeks.

 

Maybe you will have better luck with it working long-term. For me, most topicals will work for a few months and then my skin builds a tolerance and I have to switch to something else.
