I had acne since age 18 and I had tried Doxycycline, minocycline, and azithromycin (orally) and clindamycin, retino a, aziderm, erithromycin, tazoretene and adalpane, none of which had got rid of it forever. I came across your website in April 2007. After five years of acne, I decided to give the regimen a shot. Initially I was a little worried, as your products aren't available where I live and it's impossible for me to get them shipped, but thanks to your website, I found good products to do the regimen with.
Now it's almost a year, and my face is perfectly clear (I do get a tiny zit once a month or so and it disappears as soon as it gets a dose of BP) Nor have I had dryness or flakiness or any other problems. All I use is cetaphil cleansing lotion and Benzac and Neutrogena moisturiser. I can also use any make-up I want alongside the regimen - no break-outs!
Thank you Dan, from the bottom of my heart, for sharing your story and ideas with us, and for the website and message board, and for being there! YOU ROCK! God bless!
Thank you so much for creating Acne.org!
I can't thank you enough. I've suffered from bad acne since 12 or 13 years old. I'm now 22. It’s been rough going through all those years trying so many products and getting disappointed with them over and over again. My friend recommended I check out Acne.org. I have been using the regimen for over a year now and continue to use as a preventative and thanks to Dan my face is clear!
I'm beautiful thanks to Dan and his regimen! Thank you so much!
I am 22 years old. I have had mild/moderate acne since I was 11. Just when I felt like my acne was finally starting to wane, I was put on a medication that blew up my acne worse than it had ever been. Determined to stymie this disaster I started glancing at websites and found yours. Figuring that I have been battling this half my life I was a little skeptical. I can proudly say that less than a week after starting, my face is flawless. Thank you so much for this simple fix. I really can't believe it.
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'm a sophomore in college, and I've had acne from since the sixth grade. Nearly half my life, I've lived with broken-out skin. It was horrible. Yeah, life was pretty sucky lol...In high school, girls seemed to be obsessed with taking pictures of themselves & admiring themselves in mirrors. Me, I shied away from mirrors and pictures, because unless there was the right lighting, I did not want to be looking at my face. I made sure whenever I walked outside, I walked in the shade so people approaching me wouldn't see all of my blemishes. I knew that having acne shouldn't make me any less beautiful than anyone else, but it was how I felt. It didn't help that friends and family would just brush off my problem like "It will clear up eventually" or "It's not THAT bad, girl." Well, it WAS that bad for me. True, since I have dark skin, my blemishes weren't as prominent as on paler skin tones, but it most definitely was not that one-pimple business that people would freak out over in!
school. I had moderate acne all over my cheeks and chin, & mild acne on my forehead.
And then I found your site. It was at that point when I was deciding whether I should start Accutane. My derma had recommended it, but I still was having second-thoughts about all the side-effects. It was the summer of my frosh yr in college, and I had been watching your movies. It made me laugh seeing you smear the clear stuff on your face. For some reason, I liked how it was you--someone who once had acne before--putting that stuff on your face, and not some random model. It took 3 months, but I'm clear now! I use Organic Aid Natural Clear Soap, Cetaphil to moisturize, and AHA at night. Thank you so, so much. You've been such a blessing to me.

I am writing this because this is my way of saything THANK YOU Daniel for sharing the regimen. I first started breaking out when I was 14- teenage acne on my forehead. The severity of the acne on my forehead reduced as I got older, however it started to spread, to the temples, inner cheeks, graudally to the outer cheek and chin. Sometimes it was 2 or 3 pimples, sometimes it was everywhere. Luckily it was always moderate- clooged pores, small pimples, whiteheads occasionally... coverable with makeup but I would never let anyone see me without it! I've tried all sorts of skin care products, used blue and red LED lights and acneticin. When I was into the third bottle of Acneticin I saw Daniel's site and went FK IT, IT'S CHEAP, LOOKS GENUINE might as well as try it. Thank god I did!!!!!
I actually saw Daniels site when I was still in high skool (am in 3rd yr uni now), but the descriptions of "peeling, red skin" for a couple months freaked me out. If only I had tried the gel in appearance-means-everything highskool!! In the first few days of using it my skin didn't go red or dry at all, and my skin started clearing up after the first application.After upping the dosage after 2 wks my skin started to burn, get really dry and red! After moisturising flakiness wasn't visible, but makeup wasn't an option as it would emphasise the flakiness and look HORRIBLE! For 2 wks i had a relatively clear but red face, which couldn't be covered no matter how much concealer i put on. Fortunately these side effects subsided after about a month. I'm in the middle of my second month now and my skin no longer flakes or turns red (thank god), and makeup looks normal (horray!) I apply the gel mostly only at night so I still get a small pimple here and there soemtimes. I can't believe it took me 5 and a half years to find my miracle! Thanks so much Daniel!! Note to all: do not be turned off by the initial side effects, I promise you it will go away!!

Hi Dan, I have been battling acne since I was 12 years old and I am now 36. I've tried everything to get rid of my acne. It was severe cystic acne and was very upsetting. I finally used acutane and that clear up most of it except for a mild case of acne left on my cheeks and chin. I have tried Retin A and had the worst case of dry skin I've ever seen. No cream could sooth the dry skin and when I used it every other day I broke out. I finally just accepted the mild acne as something I would always have until I tried out your Regimen. It worked wonders. I did not have to use the moisturizer because I have oily skin but the 2.5% Benzol Peroxide was amazing. It cleared my skin within a few days and left it feeling soft. After just a week I noticed that the redness which I thought I'd have is starting to fade. Thanks so much for your website! Take Care,
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,

Hi Dan, My name is Robert from Minnesota and I am a witness to the efficiency of your regimen.I have had bad acne since 1997-I am talking crocodile skin like.I was 16 then and it ruined the better part of my teenage life and knocked up my confidence. I discovered your site about four months ago. Before then I had used all sorts crap for my acne and seen all kinds of skin doctors even an Asian herbal doctor who prescribed an ointment that smelt like it came straight off a skunk.Nothing worked. I started using your regimen in September of 2003 and four months later I have the clearest skin I have had in years. I am talking baby butt smooth (best analogy I could think of) I am writing to personally thank you for the help you have given me.You actually made my life better. At the moment, this email is the best way I can think of thanking you. However,if I ever get a better way to express my appreciation for your help I will not hesitate to use it. Thank you and God bless you Regards,
I just wanted to say thanks for making this product so easy to get. I am 20 and have had acne for a couple years now and nothing really helped. I tried proactiv for a while and it didnt help much plus was expensive. Yours works so much better and is much more cost efficient. Using your method my face has cleared up much more than it had with anything else, including proactiv, and I am hopeful that it will be gone completely shortly. Also since I live in SF and my order gets here insanely fast. Anyway just wanted to say thanks, it has been a huge help.
