I want to personally thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart for creating this website. Over 1 year ago , i was surfing on a site called blackhairmedia.com, one of the members suggested to another poster to visit your site for acne problems because the info really helped her acne. I have been to several dermatologists for my mild to moderate acne. While the treatments worked for a while , my acne always came back, worse it seemed. I am 34years old and i was just so so tired of having a face that looked like a pizza. I began trying your regimen last january 2006. It was relatively simple since i was already trying everything else I thought i had nothing to lose. Besides ,couple years ago I did use 10% benzoyl peroxide which did work for a while but stopped. Honestly, i was skeptical going from a higher to lower concentration. I would say within a month of trying your regimen i noticed a difference. My face went from having 2 new pimples every two weeks to virtually none! I was thrilled. I still am. This regimen still works for me. I know it is this regimen because every once in a while I will stop for a couple of days and grow new pimples. I don't do this often because my pimples leave acne marks which take months clear. Anyway , thank you so very much. Your valuable info has given me a new confidence my acne once threatened.
I used to have terrible break outs. I tried prescription medicines, products advertised on TV, but nothing ever worked. My mom found your website five years ago and that is when I started following your regimen. I don't remember when I noticed it working, but I know that my skin has been clear for a VERY long time and I swear by your acne gel and recommend it to all of my friends. Finally something that ACTUALLY works! Thank you!

Were do i start, I'm a female and I'm 22, i have been suffering with acne since i was 13. I tried everything that was in the high street stores, creams, cleansers spot creams everything!!! i went to the doctors and they gave me creams, pills and nothing worked, i was told to go and see a skin doctor,they gave me cream that burned my skin and made it peel really bad, but funny enough it didn't work.
Everyday i just carried on as normal, i was embarrassed to go out, i hated being in bright lighting and sometimes i would never go out if my spots were really bad!! And so i went back to the doctors and they put me on the pill, which is for acne as well as a contraception. All my big pimples and spots went i just had loads of small spots under my skin which still look horrible, i hated taking the pill because it made me feel sick when i took it. So after 6 years of being on the pill i came off it and then i just gave up hope. I don't have acne anymore but my cheeks are covered in little spots under the skin which look horrible and i had loads of blackheads, and i had the odd red pimple on my face. I stopped putting things on my skin because i knew nothing worked!!
Last week i had enough i was sick of hiding my face under my hair and feeling really crap about myself, i decided to go online and look up laser treatment for my skin. And then this site popped up from nowhere, so i decided to have a read and see what it was about. I read about you and your regime and then i read what other people had put and how it worked!! some of the people who wrote to you sounded a bit like me, at first i thought no way can this work. So i wrote down the gp gel and went to the chemist and bought some, i nothing to lose.
O my god!!!! well after a day my skin felt so soft and less bumpy, i have been using it for a week now and i feel so great!! my skin looks so clear and clean just after a week!!! thank you so much!! u are a saint i feel like me, and how Ive always wanted to be!!!

I have suffered from acne since I was 12 I am now 35 and still going strong with the 'suffering' until...I came across your website. At first I was skeptical as I have tried everything from over the counter cures to homeopathic to invasive prescriptions, nothing worked for more then 2 weeks. Anyone who truly has chronic acne knows that your skin can be very chameleon like when introducing a new skin care regimen. It can adapt and rebel to the products you try. Well, I put my skepticism aside and ordered your clear skin product line. WOW! It worked. AND It's still working.
Thank you for developing a regimen that works. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am in awe of what you have been able to accomplish for long time acne sufferers.
I have told everyone I know and any random person who asks...and they do ask...'what do you use on your skin?' about the clear skin product line.
I will continue to be a LOYAL customer!
PS. I rarely send e-mails like this but I feel like I won the lottery so I just had to contact you directly and share my appreciation.
Hey Dan. I just want to say thanks for introducing me to an alternative to Proactiv. Aside from the high cost, my face seem to have developed an immune to the medication after almost a year of using the product. I was frantic trying to find a solution to my pimples on my forehead and chin. I came across your website from a random search and was skeptical in the beginning, but thought I had nothing to lose if I gave it a try(only about 10 dollars for the bottle of benzoyl peroxide.) It's been almost 3 months and my face has cleared up drastically. The pimples on my forehead are gone! I love washing my face now because it feels so smooth! One thing I've altered to the regimen is using the B.P. once a day at night. It seems to work for me that way. You have saved me from embarassment. Now I am not afraid to tie my hair up and show off my new found skin. Thanks!
Words cannot express my appreciation for the 2.5% bp gel...it has changed my life! Growing up I was fortunate to have nice skin, even during my teen years. When I turned 21 I started having acne for the first time in my life. For 2 years I tried everything...changing my make up, specialty creams, Rx treatments, etc. I have pale sensitive skin...and when I say sensitive I mean SEN-SI-TIVE! Even the stuff made for reactive skin like mine broke me out - cetaphil, eucerin, etc. Frustrated and lacking the confidence I once had I finally decided to look for alternate treatments. During my research I came across acne.org and was intrigued by the 2.5% bp gel. I had tried zap zyt which was too hard, neutrogena on the spot which did nothing etc., so I was skeptical. Desperate with no where else to turn I took the plunge. My item arrived quickly and there was tons of product. I begain the regimen on a Saturday and by Thursday my skin was perfect...I mean 100% clear. I only have a few r!
ed spots that need to fade. The best thing is that my skin is soooo soft! I was worried I would have drying problems but did not (and I even have dry skin.) I cleanse with purpose in the am, use the bp, then purpose moisturizer with spf. At night I cleans again, apply the bp, and then complex 15 cream. My husband commented that my skin looked great and that I was glowing! I feel happy about my apperance for the 1st time in 2 years...I have soft, clear, radiant skin. I want the world to know about this amazing product...PLEASE NEVER EVER EVER STOP MAKING IT!

I have been meaning to write you for a while now but haven't gotten around to it. Like you, I had tried everything, I mean Everything there was to cure my acne. One day in April of this year I was just fooling around online and typed in Acne in the google search engine. Yours was the first site and I clicked on it. I started the regimen the next day and for the first time since I was 13 I have clear skin (except when I was on Accutane). I just want to say thank you so much, sooooooooo much, you don't know what you have done for me and I've been telling anyone and everyone I can about your website.

I am 38 years old. I have battled extremely oily skin & mild acne for as long as I can remember. Just like everyone else, I have tried the spectrum of treatments from prescription to over-the-counter remedies to expensive department store products...all to no avail. I came upon your website in yet another desperate online search for acne tips & advise...I ended up finding the best products I have ever used to treat my skin! I cannot say enough good things about the products that you have developed. Your advise & suggestions are tried & true. It's obvious your mission is to "end acne as we know it." Thank you for helping my skin look the best it has ever looked! Keep those great products coming!

I've been on your regimen for about one year, I think. It works. Other topical treatments controlled the number of breakouts I had but did not get rid of them compeletely. Those prescribed by doctors like Stevamycin were too harsh for my sensitive skin. Although accutane worked for me, after about four months of going off the drug, the unwelcome visitors started creeping back in. In my case, using your regimen, the progress was gradual - first the number of breakouts decreased, then after about a month, they stopped altogether.The healing process might have been faster if I stuck to one BP gel but I'd run out of the Spectro-Jel 2.5% gel and would have to use my left over Hydrogel 4% in the meanwhile etc. My skin didn't like that. Anyhoo, I'm using your 4oz BP gel now, and I don't have a single complaint, plus it lasts for months. I found that my skin was getting really dry after the first month. I was initially on the Cetaphil daily moisturizer but that wasn't strong enough - I would flake. Then I went on Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion with AHA and multivitamins and although that worked the best for me, it wasn't enough so I gradually reduced the amount the BP gel I used (like you recommended) to a third of the usual dose. That helped a bit. I then switched to using the BP gel every mornings and the Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizeer (or Cetaphil) at night. My skin is happy now. The brown spots from my acne days are clearing up nicely, albeit slowly. I don't want to use a hydroquinone cream or a harsh exfoliant: 4% AHA causes me to break out, so I'll just have to be patient. Sometimes I look in the mirror and I'm like Wow! I think I'm beginning to take clear skin for granted - that's when I get lazy and don't wash before bedtime, but then I usually get a pimple as punishment!
To cut the long story short, thank you VERY VERY MUCH. I have clear skin, and the products are affordable.

Thanks for creating these products and the full line.
The past year and a half my skin was absolutely out of control. My doctor said that I had acute cystic acne. I have using your products for months now and it has amazed me how long they last, how much clearer my skin is as well as how well your products are priced and their quality.
Keep it up! Thanks for giving an option to Proactiv and other lines.
