I'm a 24 year old woman from India. Have been following the regimen for about 2 weeks now. My skin looks fantastic.:) I use dove soap before I slather on the BP(In india, the only 2.5% BP I've seen comes in a small tube that lasts for 2 weeks max. It costs about Rs 60 and it is manufactured by galderma). I have very dry, sun-sensitive skin and I follow up with Oil of Olay SPF-15 moisturizer. Works like a charm. Like most Indians, I have light brown skin. The first 2-3 days of BP made my skin rough, and there was a mild bleaching effect in patches. I was a little hesitant to continue. People at work even asked if I had a vitamin deficiency (If you've suffered a long time from acne, you realise that the average person isn't too big on tact).
But I decided to give it time. I've suffered from moderate-severe acne for about 8 years now with limited success in treating it. I've tried retino-A, clindamycin, oral antibiotics(doxycycline, tetracycline - they were terrible. Felt like throwing up all the time. They really messed up my tum). I've also tried BP in the past, but probably didn't apply it effectively. This is brilliant Dan. You're doing the world a great service. Keep up the good work, and god bless.
