I am 24years old Male recent college graduate and had mild acne. It started in my senior year of highschool. I have never really had problem being self-confident until I started to get frequent break-outs and always felt to keep myself away from group of people. Acne did not quite stop me from being successful in college but there were times when I wanted have good time with my female friend, I just never felt confident enough.
During my last five years, I used well known products such as Proactive, Murad, AcneFree etc. I was the most consistent with Pro-active on which I may hv spent over 500dollars. Pro-active in fact worsen my acne. Those time were the worst when I was so desperate to be around people and maybe find someone to start relationship.
Five years later, just comming across this website and it changed my life in less than 3 weeks. It just sounds unrealistic because FIVE years of my acne problem vanished in less than 3 weeks..thats just ridiculous.
Idea of using GEL, perfect demonstration on website and pump tube really got my attention right away. Buying this product is the second best thing I ever done in my life after becomming rich from buying google IPO stocks..hahaha..
Dear Daniel Kern and everyone at Acne.org,
I began your regimen around November of last year. I have had terrible acne for years and years. I tried every over-the-counter product, mixed and matched things, searching desperately for a cure. I accidentally came across your site and started reading about what you do. The fact that you are a real person, just a regular guy on a mission trying to rid the world of acne, really got my attention.
I decided to give your products a try, and saw instant results. Now, I am proud to say that I am completely clear. No more pimples, no more red marks, no more nothing! I can finally walk around without a shirt on for the first time in about 5-6 years confidently!
Although this simple message seems so miniscule in return for what you and your products have done for me, I feel I needed to write and thank you for giving me my confidence back. I have honestly never felt better about myself, and you and Acne.org truly are changing people’s lives. I'm proof of that. So, thank you so much for these products and the great support I have received from your staff and from the message boards. I am a lifelong customer and believer in what you are doing. Thank you!
All the best,
It began with the blossom of terrible skin as I entered puberty at age 12. For years I have suffered with bad skin. In high school I started going to the dermatologist. Several medications and different doctors later I felt I was running out of options. I was so hopeful and relieved when my dermatologist talked to me about Accutane. Finally, the miracle cure I had been waiting for! That was when I was 17. My early 20s found me beginning to have bad skin once again. After the side effects of Accutane (severely dry skin & diminished night vision), I was hoping to not resort to such a drastic measure again. When I was around 24 I started to use ProActiv. At first I thought it was working. It probably reduced my acne by about 10%. I was just glad to see a reduction. Well, after using it for over a year I felt like my skin was not benefiting from it really at all. At 26 I went to the dermatologist yet again (after a 9 year absence). He was the same one I went to in high school. After an awkward encounter I left disappointed that he offered the same "solutions" that hadn't worked in high school. Hadn't this field progressed at all? I started using Retin-A and my moderate acne became severe! I thought it might get worse before it got better, but after 3 weeks my face was enflamed and in pain. It was the worst acne I had had in 13 years! Next I began using birth control. After a couple of months I was again disappointed that no positive change was occurring. My last resort (last I don't know why now) was to use the benzoyl peroxide. After only a week I could feel it working. It just felt like my skin was healing. That was about a year ago. My skin is not perfect today. But it is about 85% clearer than it was than before I began this regimen. I usually use it about twice a day. I have to use moisturizer after each time since I realized it just irritated and dried out my skin too much. Though my skin isn't totally clear, this regimen gave me hope as no other treatment had.
Hi there! I just wanted to let you know that after years of having issues with acne, your 2.5% solution seems to have done the trick. I have been on Acutane, a slew of other prescription meds and nothing has helped the way this has. Like many of your customers, I also suffered with acne excoriee for years and one of your user's suggested getting a facial every month. Well, I did it and I haven't touched my skin since! Making some simple changes in my skin regimen has truly changed the way "I look" at life. I have shared my success stories with friends and family and since then, two of them have purchased your product.

Thank you, Dan, for helping me to change my life. For providing the catalyst to help me leave my house every day and actually feel beautiful. After using your Benzoyl Peroxide gel for a few months now I hate to say I've taken for granted not worrying about breakouts anymore, but you've helped to spoil me that much! And now every time I see someone who suffers from acne I want to share your website, a real treasure, with them! And so I felt it was high time to email you and say thank you. I'm sure you've heard it a thousand times, but hopefully you can still appreciate and remember what it was like to suffer from horrible acne and have your life turned around when you discovered a cure, and then was able to pass it on.
My skin is radiant-my blackheads are almost gone and of course those pesky red zits that just never stopped popping up. And although it took me a couple months to figure out the dryness to moisturizer ratio, I have and I'm so pleased.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I've used the acne.org products in the past and was very impressed. For the past year or so, I've been struggling again with acne, this time worse than before. I went to the derm and got prescription products, and have tried them on and off for a year with no success.
Then I finally ordered your products again: the moisturizer, AHA cream, and BP treatment. Thank you, thank you, and thank you so much. The words "I love you" are just ready to spring off my tongue, because for the first time in a while my moderate acne is CLEARING! It's been less than a week and I have not one active pimple. I'm just getting rid of the red marks left behind.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for producing these wonderful products that really work, and that I never have to fear putting on my face. I always read ingredients of whatever I put on my face, but always feared a break-out. I cannot thank you enough for creating simple, affordable products that work and have improved my mood and self-esteem as I see my face clear.
Acne can deliver such a blow to a person's self-esteem, and I really admire the work that you are doing on this website and, of course, the products.
I'll be a loyal customer from here on out.
All the best,

You know, it's hard to believe almost anything about acne nowadays. Between TV, magazines, and the internet, everyone has their miracle cure, from Accutane to egg whites to Desquam-X.
Thankfully, my my acne was never as bad as yours, Dan. But I did have a big bag of acne medications I've tried over the years, and none of them really worked. At one point, my skin was so freakin' dry that opening my mouth to put food in it would my shirt kinda white from skin flakes!
Anyways, my skin got better after Accutane, but not completely. Touching my skin in one spot would cause a zit in that exact spot the next day. Great, huh?
My ex-girlfriend told to check out your site, and I did. I told myself, "What do I have to lose? At the very least I can fill up my bag o' acne meds a little more and laugh."
I was surprised to find your regimen WORKS! WOW. I was thrilled, and so excited to tell everyone.
Thanks, Dan. =)
The only other thing I wanna say is that dermatologists piss me off. Why don't more of them know about this kind of treatment? My freakin' dermatologist was useless (kinda sounds like some of yours), just mentioning moisturizing in passing. Damn him.

I've tried so many things to help my acne: Proactive, dermatologist proscribed topical treatments and drugs, mainstream acne treatments, etc. Nothing worked. A lot of money was spent.
So, I heard of the acne.org regimen and thought "Really, this works? It can't be that simple." But since it was so simple (and cheaper) I decided to try it. Success! I couldn't believe it. In a few weeks my face started to clear up. Of coarse I still get those random breakouts sometimes (little "presents" during midterms and finals) but overall my face is clear.
Thank you so much for putting your time and energy in figuring out this regimen. I've been telling everyone about it. And I haven't felt this good about my skin since the 6th grade.

I decided to try your regiment with the cetaphil cleanser, neutrogena on the spot, and a hypoallergenic facial moisturizer about 2 months ago. I had my doubts that this would make my cystic acne go away, but I am amazed to tell you that after month 1, my cystic acne COMPLETELY vanished and my face is beautifully clear. So much so that I haven't wore makeup all this week!
In the past I have tried everything, including the popular Proactive which worked for a while, but it seemed my skin developed an immunity to it and I broke out again worse than before, which left me searching for a new solution.
I hadn't always had cystic acne, but since I have been put on medication for migraines my skin went crazy and nothing would stop it. I was embarrassed to talk to anyone, but your regiment has saved my skin! thank you so much. love this website!
Your regiment does work!
I just wanted to express my deep gratitude for your help.
Like many, I had acne as a teenager. I was able to keep my skin clear for a while, but once I hit 23, my skin broke out again.
I tried everything - I went to several dermatologist, all of who gave me treatments that actually made my skin worse. My confidence reached a new personal low; I felt completely helpless.
I had come across this website several times, but never tried the regimen - I thought there was no way it could be that easy! Instead, I spent hundreds of dollars on creams, facials, washes, and prescriptions. All without success.
About a month and a half ago I decided to try the regimen - guess what, my skin is finally clear!
I did make a few modifications for my particular situation (I use a BP wash at night, and use Tazorac on my forehead), but overall, I couldn't be happier.
Thanks - this really has changed my life.
