I started using this system a week ago and already it is improving my condition. Thanks! I will order some of your product once I get paid to help myself and to say thanks to you again!

Hi! I stumbled upon this site a little over a year ago while searching for tips on handling acne online, at the time i was using clearisil max strength (bp 10%) every night and an alternative med soap for acne and it seemed to work (if i forget about the 15 minutes of burning i experienced each night). But after a couple of monts it backfired. I then switched to using salicilic acid, and as that didnt do any wonders i sorta stoped trying.
I've never had really severe acne but i frequently had one or two embarassing cysts on my chin or above my lip accompaning less bothersome pimples on my forehead.
A couple of months ago i started using Proactive (i had some at home because my sis ordered it but it didnt work on her) and it kind of worked at first but nothing big. I then remembered acne.org and decided to check it out again.
I ordered your products because i thought that if the regime was gonna work at all , the products YOU sell HAVE to work for sure.
I am so thankfull i stumbled upon your site once upon a time! Ive following the regime for 5 weeks now and my skin is noticeably clearer...many ppl have told me my skin looks alot better. It also feels better.
I love the regime.
THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH ALL OF US,

I got the cleanser, treatment, moisturizer, jojoba oil, and AHA+. I've been washing my face once a day for about 10 seconds or so with 1.5 to 2 pumps of the cleanser when I shower. I wait until my face feels dry and then I smooth on 1.5 to 2 pumps of the treatment. I wait until my face is dry again and then I smooth on 1.5 to 2 pumps of the moisturizer along with 7 drops of the jojoba oil. The moisturizer/jojoba oil doesn't soak all the way in right away even after smoothing it for awhile, but by the time I go to work, it soaks all the way in. I noticed that my face is not as dry since I've been doing this regimen. I also very rarely get any pimples now, not even on the sides of my cheeks, which is where I usually get the "underground" painful ones that get out of control. I tried using that AHA+ when I got a pimple on my chin and it was much smaller the very next day. It was completely gone by the day after that and I only used it twice!
Anyway, I thought my results were too cool not to share with you. I really like that jojoba oil. It rinses off of your hands so much easier than olive oil.
Dan, I am grateful you did not keep the acne regimen to yourself. It has sincerely changed the way I see myself. I began the regimen in mid January, but told myself I would give the regimen plenty of time to start working and then failing, before I even thought of praising it and e-mailing you , but it has worked and not failed me at all. I have been following the regimen for a bit over two months now, and I love it. I am 31 years old and the combination of meds have not only cleared my acne, but have also evened out my skin tone, it's great! We have never met and probably never will, but I will always remember you as one who helped me regain my confidence. Thank you.
I post as headswapop on acne.org. My names kev and i'm a 24 year old from leeds in the UK.
I basically wanted to personally thank you for sharing the regimen with the world, i have suffered moderate acne for about 6 years now and had tried (unsuccessfully) lots and lots of different acne treatments only to be let down time and again. As an acne sufferer yourself you must know how much it impacts your life, i was constantly checking my skin in the mirror, thought about it constantly and missed lots of social occassions.
Well..... things have most definiltly changed now, it's been 8 weeks on the regimen and i have been 95% clear for the last 3/4 weeks, it's had a huge impact on my life and i just feel so much happier and more confident. You did that dan and believe me when i say i just can't thank you enough.
I am always telling whoever will listen how i managed to clear my skin and about acne.org. I just hope the regimen continues to work for me. Anyways thanks once again dan the world needs more peolple like you :-}
I get spurts where I have acne and I used your method and its going all away...I find that I feel better about my face with NO cover up or makup.
Hi Dan -
I'm not sure you'd call this a "huge" success story, but for us, it's been a big thing. My two teenage daughters have tried many facial cleansers and it seems to them that every one they try makes them break out! I've been using your gentle cleanser for some time and I kept encouraging them to try it, but they rejected such a simple solution - they kept wanting to try the "name brand" stuff that they saw advertised on their favorite networks (neutrogena, etc.). After trying so many of the advertised ("miracle") products, which only seemed to make their skin worse, they've both come over to the cleanser. One of my daughters will use a little BPO 10% when she has a break-out, the other one seems to be allergic to it. Anyhow - Thanks so much for such a simple, but effective product!

I've waited two full months before weighing in, to be certain I can speak honestly about how this regimen works. Experience has shown me within that time period I will experience four hormonal swings (I'm a 42 year-old woman) that will result in painful cystic chin acne each time, and such accompanying embarrassment that I'll reschedule activities to avoid being around anyone other than my family. Over the years I have used tetracyclene, birth control pills and proactive with little success and differing unpleasant side affects from all three. In addition to the deep chin acne, I have highly sensitive skin, mild to moderate t-zone acne, and the newly developing appearance of rosacea. I really couldn't have felt less attractive or more self-conscious.
I followed the regimen EXACTLY and checked the "what to expect" section and testimonials almost daily for the first couple weeks to stay focused.
My skin is now beautiful.
While doubtful about the regimen after so many failures, my best hope was for the mild t-zone acne to clear, some lessening of the cystic acne and I didn't know what to think of the rosacea. The t-zone cleared completely, fast, and the deep acne improved by 50% the first month and disappeared completely by the second. The rosacea hated bp but loved the jojoba oil, and disappeared completely by the second month. How is it after so many years of suffering and embarrassment, my bad skin turned into good skin in less than two months?
I use everything recommended here, except changed one of the moisturizers to their sunscreen-free version. Dan's bp is superior to anything available on store shelves. Sensitive skin and rosacea respond well to soothing jojoba oil. The alpha hydroxy lotion sent the deep acne packing that first month.
I cannot express how grateful I am for this regimen. Perhaps it is vain to feel miserable with a blemished face, but the fact is my self-confidence has soared with beautiful, acne-free skin.

Since I was around 15 my face broke out in terrible acne. However, unlike some you might see online that cover the face and will eventually leave scars mine where generally a few massive, red and sore ones. My whole face would look blotchy and, well, being in school like that was terrible. My inner circle of friends didn't care but I kind of lost all hope of ever curing it. As i got towards the age of around 18 it was still there but not as bad. I'd often get a lot on my chin, sides of nose and neck. I then took time to try to find a good moisturizer and face wash. However, all the ones I tried felt as if they were burning me or making my face too dry to the extent that when I laughed i'd often get a crack in my skin where it was dry. So only in the last year (i'm 23 now) I found your website and decided to try benzoyl peroxide. So as if I was forgetting the past and starting from scratch I decided to go all natural. I first decided to only but face washes and moisturizers that were made from natural ingredients.
So that night I first used the face wash which left my skin quite dry. I then applied the benzoyl peroxide in certain areas and after that dried I was generous with the moisturizer I applied.
Anyway, after awhile of doing your regimen I feel that my skin has gotten so much better. My chin rarely get spots and it's all going good. Thankfully it never go so bad that I got scars but on closer inspection I personally feel that my face might have a slightly gravely look to it but that could be just me. If there's one thing I've learned over the years it's when you have acne and look in the mirror day in day out you find stuff that no one else would even notice, you're your biggest critic I guess.
A huge thanks from Ireland. It's not perfect yet but I'm over the hump.
I can not thank you enough! I am a different person, because of your web site!
I was wondering if I could order a bulk amount of BP gel through you. I will be travelling and want to be sure i have a well stocked amount!!
