Hey just came across this stuff http://www.boots.com/shop/product_details....ationid=1018012 on the boots site, facial scrub and contains jojoba oil

claims: this Naked face wash is 96% natural and you'll never find any parabens, petrochemicals or sodium lauryl sulfate in our ingredients list.

Also came across this http://www.boots.com/shop/product_details....ationid=1018009

Tea Tree + Witch Hazel Cleansing & Toning Lotion, the distilled Witch Hazel seems to be working wonders for the users in the other thread

and I was wondering whether anyone has used this stuff http://www.boots.com/shop/product_details....ationid=1012346?

Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel, as I'm looking for a simple cleanser, thinking of ordering a whole batch of supplies so as to safe on postage

Ibuprofen 5% sports gel twice a day. Any of the many different makes should work. It makes my acne hugely better. It helps get rid of small spots, but mostly it's a preventative though- you apply it where you get spots. It helps a bit with spots that have formed as well, but that's not the point of it, that's not where it shines.

I use it with a dilute tea tree oil laced face cream, but probably any good antibacterial would work. Should work with BP, but I haven't tried it (don't put it on at the same time though).


-Temp123

Using a combination of topical ibuprofen (5% sports gel) on face together with 10% tea tree cream. The combo works really well, excellent clearance, invisible, no bleaching, zero irritation, no dry skin, just smooth, (mostly) clear skin.

Topical ibuprofen is available in supermarkets in the UK (own brands are cheapest).

Cleansers:

Act Washbar - Quite Drying and Acne Medicated but a good washbar for areas you feel acne isnt bad enough to need constant application of bp. I use the act washbar on my cheeks/forehead/neck and its excellent and a real bargain at £1.79 + p&p price depending on where in europe.

http://www.boots.com/shop/product_details....oductid=1032669

Biore Oil Control Cleanser - A cleanser not washbar, i used this anywhere i applied bp to as its very mild and gentle, perfect to prep area before application of bp and doesnt leave area dry etc.

http://www.boots.com/shop/product_details....mp;slmRefer=000

Boots Tea Tree + Witch Hazel Foaming Face Wash - Another cleanser ive tried, i stil have it altho i dont use now my flatmate does. As i liked the Biore Cleanser Better.

ph balanced, non comedogenic etc.

http://www.boots.com/shop/product_details....mp;slmRefer=000

Not many of these links are active.

I was going to buy some BP for my skin, but tbh, I don't know if it's quite bad enough. So, I'm thinking I'll just try a cleanser to begin with and see if I can clear my skin up that way. At the moment I'm only washing with soap and water. Does anyone have any links to any cleansers available in the UK that might be useful? That Act washbar sounds good, as I've read countless times that normal soap isn't particularly good for the skin. Anywhere else I might be able to buy something similar?

iv been using panoxyl 2.5 gel for 5 years now and have been completly clear for 4 of them, like nothin no red marks left etc. i find it is very overdryin at first, but the results later are well worrth it, and i now find myself not followin any regimen religiously only 1 wash n apply a day n everythings fine. but yep, im my experience its worth goin for the panoxyl in this country, u can get 3 40g packs for only £10 from expresschemist.co.uk whilst payin £5 for the worse product oxy on the spot which is only 20g too..

iv noticed a lot of people slating panoxyl 2.5 gel and its pisssin me off along with the fact that people keep tellin me (UK based people) that dans products are cheaply aquired. well i beg to differ tbh. i appreciate everythingg dan has done for me if i seen him walkin down the street id run n hug the guy, but 23quid for all the products plus shippin is 50+quid a shot n im at uni n simply cant afford that every month. panoxyl 2.5gel i get from expresschemist.co.uk like someone mentioned above and its absolutely brilliant, yes is redness at first but its a great product u just have to moisturise is all. i use this ( iget a triple pack off that site for £8 atm 40g) and my moisturiser which i get for 3.99 at boots. i generally dont use LOADS of moisturiser tho, so one can last me up to 3 months, but usually get a triple pack of panox every month to a month n a half. so thats like £8 a month for any skint students out htere! god knows theres loads around!

oh and ive been on the regimen for like 7 years, since i found this website in its old old state (a tonne of posts about red marks i recall, just let em fade!) if anyone wants to see my progress with the panoxyl give me a message as I have all my progress pics on facebook)haha, im one day gunna try dans products tho n see what all the fuss is about!

KEEP THE FAITH

this was not a rant btw :surprised:

was going through the main acne.org site and thought id help out a bit by providing some links for products for the section "outside the US"

mainly for europeans

also this site that ive used to display the products is a MAIN supplier in the UK and europe

www.boots.com

there is a boots in most towns and every city ive ever been to so its a solid supplier.

Cleansers:

Act Washbar - Quite Drying and Acne Medicated but a good washbar for areas you feel acne isnt bad enough to need constant application of bp. I use the act washbar on my cheeks/forehead/neck and its excellent and a real bargain at £1.79 + p&p price depending on where in europe.

Boots Tea Tree + Witch Hazel Foaming Face Wash - Another cleanser ive tried, i stil have it altho i dont use now my flatmate does. As i liked the Biore Cleanser Better.

ph balanced, non comedogenic etc.

Benzoyl Peroxide Products:

note:site used for shipping is my only other online pharmacy i use (boots dont seem to sell BP products online but these do: www.expresschemist.com

they also deliver to europe etc.

Panoxyl Aquagel 2.5 40g - The only 2.5% Bp i know of available in the Uk which is OTC. Some member use but like we all know its known to cause redness, none the less available at most pharmacys etc.

Brevoxyl Cream 40g - I thought id add this as it was the one i started off with, its a cream bp at 4% not 2.5, however it did its job at the start. I came off once i realised i could get the CSR gel at a good price to the uk and my skin was a lot better once i changed. I do however have sensitive skin so that might have been the problem.

Moisturisers:

Eucerin Dry Skin Relief Face Cream with 5% Urea - The only moisturiser id suggest in the UK, id say 95% of UK members use this moisturiser, its EXCELLENT. I used a crappy moisturiser before this one and it was leaving my skin flakey etc. Once i switched it was AMAZING how much difference a quality moisturiser made.

My skin was hardly flakey etc and was 10x better. The only moisturiser i ever suggest to UK members. It is however an AHA moisturiser so id only suggest after a few weeks into the regimen etc etc etc.

hope thats it might be helpful as reference or something. :)

I would like to know if i have shpould use the panoxly gel the same amount tha dan said for his own bp gel?

If anyone is looking for a natural moisturiser with spf25, i like to recommend Kimberly sayer anti-oxidant daily moisturiser. It can be found online at lovelula website. I have only been using it for a month and so far no problem with it, infact it seemed to help clear my acne or at least no breakout or rash from it.

May I also recommend Oxy on the Spot's 2.5% benzoyl peroxide cream. I found this quite easily at my local Boots pharmacy.

Just wondering if anyone has ever used this?

cetaphil gentle skin cleanser

thanks

I have been using this with months now and find it to be great. It is a bit expensive compared to other cleansers, but I love it and wouldn't use anything else. It is a bit tricky applying it as it doesn't lather. Apart from that, it is a great cleanser. Hope it helps!
