I've been on the regimen now since Mid-August. I've had only 3 new spots in the past month. My face looks the best it's been in 4 years: thank you thank you thank you thank you.
It's like a game for me now, I check my face at night watching the old red marks fade. I think in about 2 months they'll have gone completely. You're a life saver, your regimen really works wonders. It seems crazy that all of these acne companies like Clearisil and Oxy are making so much money, when it's your products and ideas that really work.
I'll email again when I'm completely clear. Thanks man. You made me confident again. I will never forget this.
p.s. I seriously think you should think about making a whole skin-related product range (i.e. cleanser bar), and increase your commercial base (i.e. to the UK!!! :) )
Hi. I just wanted to let you know your acne regimen is working great for me and in just three days. I really thought it would be too harsh for me especially the soap but my skin actually feels softer and is not dry at all. After trying for 20 years to clear up my skin I would have never thought such a simple and inexpensive regimen would work. Thank you so much for sharing your regimen with others. I feel so much better about myself and how I look.!!

I just submitted a reorder and wanted to let you know how much I love your products. I am in my 30s and have struggled with acne since junior high. I took one round of Accutane in my early 20s, and it worked wonders for my cystic acne. However, my skin went haywire as I neared 30. Then I discovered the Regimen and your products.
Since adopting the Regimen several years ago, my skin looks great. So thank you!

I've used proactive (stopped working over time), Accutane (quit after it started affecting my lower back), Salicylic acid (harsh and irritated my skin), and many more over the counter products that gave short term satisfaction.
I've have acne for 15 years and was very depressed throughout when the acne would flare up. I'm African American & have highly oily skin and would literally get a pimple everyday I just about had every type of pimple you could imagine. When I went to see the dermatologist a few years ago she said that a topical treatment wouldn't work for the cystic and commedome acne that I had so I was prescribed Accutane for a few months and after it started to stiffen my lower back I decided to stop and deal with my acne instead. Jan to May 2012 was the most depressing time for me I would cry at night because my face was broken out all over with huge cystic acne, they were red and just throbbing with pain plus I scarred easy so I'd try to hide it with makeup. In June I came across an acne.org users page on youtube and I saw the change, though skeptical because of what the dermatologist had told me I decided I don't have anything to loose so why not try this from June-September 2012 my face has cleared up 90+ percent.
Its truly a blessing. I'm happy when I look at myself in the mirror and don't feel like a slave to makeup anymore.
The products I purchased was the original kit plus the AHA treatment that helped the most with allowing my skin to shed the dead pore clogging skin.
Thank you Dan for creating this life changing and self esteem building product I'm never quitting this product!

I just wanted to say THANK YOU!
I have suffered from moderate to heavy acne since I was about 17. I was on Ro-Accutane for a year, which got rid of it, but it started to re-develop about a year ago.
I was so dissapointed and depressed because I thought the problem would never go away. Then I found your website.
I have to say, at first I thought it was a load of lies, but thought to myself, hey I've tried everything else, so why not give it a go.
In 5 days I started seeing results, and within 2 months my skin was completely clear.
I don't even have to use the Benzoyl Peroxide anymore. It's just gone. This is a fantastic solution and I recommend it to anyone. The only downside is sometimes your clothes can get bleached if you're not careful to wash your hands after you apply etc.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

I am writing this email to express my thanks to you for sharing your regimin with the rest of the world. I am 17 years old, and live in Canada. I used to always break out. I would say that i had moderate acne. There had never been a time since i was 14 when i did not have any acne on my face. I always had atlest 5 or 6 active ones. In the winter, when it was really cold, the acne got even worse. I felt disgusting as i caked on as much make up as i needed to feel somewhat confident. In the summer, my face would always be so much whiter than the rest of my body as I never allowed to tan by covering it up with all the make up. It was rediculous. My parents would not take me to the dermatologist as they said that it would heal soon. Well it never did. In March of this year, i stumbled upon your site while doing research for a school project. I decided to try it out, even though i had been using Proactiv which also had Benzoyl Peroxide in it, and was not doing a thing! After about a month, i saw improvement. I only had one or two active pimples. Then by 4 months, which is how long it has been, my face is completely clear! I have no acne on my face! It is amazing. For once i can touch my face, and it will feel smooth. In addition to having no acne, i am beginning to notice that my scars are fading. I have alot of scars on my face. They weren't the ice pick ones, fortunately, but they were a purply red colour, and most have now faded to a light pink. I cannot thank you enough! You have blessed me with confidence and with a happier life. You are an amazing person, you are my hero. I have already begun to share your Regimin with others. I work in a cosmetic department, where we also sell facial cleansers. When people ask me what I reccomend I tell them about your site, and the products that you advise. We have probably been completely sold out of the Cetaphil Cleansing Bar, Nutrogena On the Spot, and Nutrogena Moisturizer about 15-20 times. People keep coming back and thanking me, but i tell them to thank you:)!
You are totally amazing! We all love you!

My daughter had seen a physician who put her on minocycline, antibiotic refrigerated cream, topicals and birth control-yaz. This child had flawless skin in high school and had massive breakouts in college. When the physician directed regime didn't work, she was willing to try Dan's regime for 4 weeks. Well, in 3 weeks the regime worked wonders. In 4 weeks, the active acne was gone.
I love the fact that Dan's regime is all otc-over the counter- and cost effective. Now, she's working on fading the hyperpigmentation areas. THANKS Dan for sharing your regime.
Before this regimen, not even the most expensive products or treatments worked completely. I eventually went on accutane. I would describe my acne as having been moderate, but I found it incredibly bothersome. After the accutane I was actually clear for about two years, and then, slowly it came back. My skin became oily again, little blackheads appeared, then eventually I was having cystic acne along my jawline. Not wanting to take more pills, I spent over $500 on microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels, and another $200 or so on products. Yikes! I will say that though it didn't work totally, and took 3 months, I did see results. However, I knew I couldn't continue because I could no longer afford it. Accidentally I found acne.org. Hallelujah. This regimen seemed too good to be true, but I'm grateful I took the plunge. Since I had spent all that money already, I might as well give this a chance because it's such a deal. Plus, the bottles are huge! All three steps of the regimen feel wonderful on my face. Before the regimen, and even with all those fancy products, by lunchtime my face looked greasy and just felt dirty. No longer. All day my skin feels fresh, alive, and soft to the touch. However, there are three other things I find important:
1. Aloe Vera: it's wonderfully soothing, some find it moisturizing, and others find it drying. But it's natural and won't clog your pores or be oily. It helps reduce pain and inflammation. Also, it's cheap.
2. Suncreen Suncreen Sunscreen! Keep your face protected! Dan, this should be step four!! I use Skin Ceuticals Physical Defense SPF 30. About $20 but it lasts a long time. Doesn't clog pores but looks a bit shiny until it completely dries.
3. Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Nightime treatment. $60, but infused w/ 72 all natural minerals. Makes skin soft, reduces pores, redness, itchiness, dryness, rosacea, lines, etc. It's made by a mineral makeup company, but men can use it too!

thank you sooooooo much for this regimen! i'd been coming to your website for awhile to look at the reviews but never paid attention to the front page. I finally did. I'm so happy I found this. My confidence is raising so much. I just moved and i'm starting a new school and i was nervous about not making friends because of my acne, but now its almost all gone. I have no doubt my skin will be perfect by the time school start.
this is the first thing to work for me!

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.
