Tempted To Start The Regimen

6 posts in this topic

I'm getting pretty tempted to start Dans regimen. However, I see a lot of posts on here about how the regimen isnt working for people and there still breaking out a few months into it. Also dealing with the initial breakout, I have a lot of stuff to do where im gonna be socialising with people graduation, new work, job interviews friends birthday. Don't want my confidence to be completely destroyed from the IB.

Plus I heard its expensive, don't want to waste money on products that dont work. Catch 22,

JUst wondered peoples advice

Hi there...you don't have to use Dan's products, though his line is really good for the money and the amount of product you get. He does offer drugstore alternatives. He has a list that you can download and print on the home page. Best of luck to you surprised.gif


Current skin care routine:

AM

Rainwater Botanical's Soap for Troubled Skin

Spot treat with Acne.org's AHA

Clinique Moisture Surge Intense

Clinique All About Eyes with Baobab oil

PM

Clinique Take the Day Off Balm with Adzuki Micrograin Facial Scrub (All natural-awesome stuff!)

Acne.org Cleanser for extra cleansing ( I wear a full face of makeup)

Frugally Sustainable Blemish Astringent/or Rainwater Botanical's Toner for Troubled Skin (All natural-very soothing and non-drying)

1 1/2 Pumps of Acne.org's 2.5% BP

Clinique All About Eyes with Baobab oil

Acne.org's Moisturizer (small amount)

When I get home from work, I like to let my face breath, so generally, I will use Clinique Take the Day Off Balm with the Adzuki micrograins, followed by a more gentle regimen. Currently, I am using Bare Minerals Blemish Treatment on any actives...LOVE this stuff!

I've recently added a mask to my routine. It's all natural and very cheap. Bentonite clay and apple cider vinegar mixed with a wee bit of tea tree oil. This is great for blackheads!

I am currently 100% clear with this mostly natural regimen.

Makeup: Merle Norman's Purely Mineral Makeup Powder

Merle Norman Aqua Balance liquid foundation

Primer:

Studio Gear Primer

Oh, and also...while it may be true that The Regimen may not work for some, what I'm finding a lot of is people giving up before really giving The Regimen a chance. It can take up to 3 months to get clear and, for some, it may take longer. Also, when starting The Regimen you may have some nasty breakouts to begin with. This happens to quite a few folks. The Regimen will initially clear them up and then, all of a sudden, they breakout like crazy. Trust me, it will be a setback, but the end results are worth it. Just thought I'd throw that in there cool.png

Thanks for the advice! Do you think the store brought products are less effective than dans products?

Nope...the only things I use from Dan's line is the BP and the AHA....I use Johnson & Johnson Head to Toe Baby Wash for my cleanser and Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion for moisturizer...Dan's cleanser wasn't cleansing enough (I wear a full face of makeup) and the moisturizer just wasn't cutting it for me, even with jojoba oil. The Cetaphil works great, but is a little thick. And if you start The Regimen, you will get dry and flakey...that's where the jojoba oil comes in. And you can get a pretty good deal on jojoba oil online. I get mine from Ebay. Hope this helps grinwink.gif
