I actually didn't have much of an acne problem until I was in my 20s. I tried various products with decent results, but never lasting improvement. I got to a point where it was really bad - painful, embarrassing - and I starting searching online for something new. I had used BP before as a spot treatment, so when I found Dan's regimen it made sense to me that using it with a more generous application could work. I found that everything Dan said about the regimen is true: it takes 3 months to see real difference and you might feel like quitting but don't do it! The regimen really works! I still have break outs now, but just one or two periodically; acne is no longer a painful condition that daily plagues me. I also love the products that acne.org makes - large quantities for affordable prices made with quality ingredients. These are things I look for in anything I buy and I'm so glad that Dan is conscious of these things with the products he sells.
Whatever you can see in my before picture, increase that by tenfold. It's been zoomed in but the camera didn't put up how bad it really was. My whole right chin was covered in deep bumps. That is with a full face of foundation on that used to just slide off. I'm 28 years old and I've had acne since 14, mostly cystic but all kinds. I've been on the Regimen for 6 months now and I can only wish that I knew about it in high school or college- I could have gotten involved in a lot more and had a better experience. I couldn't look anyone in the eye for more than 2 seconds and I loved when I took my contacts out at night and couldn't see because it felt like other people couldn't see me clear. (silly, i know..) My cysts used to clear and come back, clear and come back, in all the same spots over and over. Years and years of this. It caused a stress in my life that put a strain on my relationships with others.
Well, through these last 6 months on the Regimen, I finally have my face under control. If I do get a small pimple, the next regimen usually FLATTENS it right down! It's an amazing process. You don't even necessarily have to order the kit- I use Olay foaming face wash, acnefree BP, and Walmart brand moisturizer. As long as you find compatible products, it's all about the process and staying gentle, keeping CLEAN towels, etc. I didn't realize how much of my acne problem was cosmetic and hygiene related. Don't let people scare you into thinking there's something wrong with your insides or pressure you into accutane before you give this a chance. If it doesn't work at ALL after following it perfectly for 6 months, then explore your options.
My before picture was the week i got engaged, and although my fiance loves me no matter what, I'll always sort of regret that my skin looked that way that night. But I'm just so happy I actually came out of it and can finally move on from acne.
Hi, my name is Gus and I am 19 years old. I first had acne when I was a sophomore in High School and it's been a constant battle with acne since then. I've been to the dermatologist 4 or 5 times between then and now, but they were expensive and I had no idea what was in the creams/pills they prescribed to me. I then turned to alternative remedies earlier this year but they didn't really work. For some reason, the acne got really bad this year (April 2014, before picture). My self confidence sunk to a new low and I was afraid of looking people in the eye, knowing full well that my face was a mess.
Thankfully for me, acne.org was giving trial-sized samples away at that time, and I thought "What the heck, let's give this a try". I can honestly say it's one of the best decisions I've made in my life. The regimen has made a world of difference to my acne in the 3 months that I've decided to commit myself to "The Regimen". What was left of those painful cystic acnes are now small, inconspicuous marks that will surely fade with time. I can confidently talk to people now without having the dreadful thought of them judging me because of my acne.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank, from the bottom of my heart, those involved in putting together "The Regimen". You have changed my life for the better and I will be forever grateful for that.

Let me just be honest, when I first found the Acne.org regimen, I wasn't thrilled at all to try it. I had tried just about every over the counter product from Clearasil to Sea Breeze to Acne Dote with worse results than what I started with. I then tried ProActive, which did NOT help at all. I also had been going to 2 different facialists and even tried doctor proscribed pills and creams and nothing was working! So, you can see why I wasn't too thrilled to try something else.
Let me tell you, I literally began to see results within the first WEEK of using the Regimen. That has never happened to me before with any other acne product I have ever tried. After 3 weeks, people started commenting on my skin and began telling me that it's clearing up so fast and I just couldn't believe it. After 2 months, my acne was completely gone. The only thing that was left were these annoying red dots which are the result of acne, but those went away eventually.
I am just so grateful for the Acne.org Regimen. I tell everyone about it and I absolutely refuse to use any other product on my face. THANK YOU DANIEL KERN!!!

This review was made 3 years ago when I was 17, I am now 20 and my skin has changed, but using The Treatment is my absolute go to. I no longer feel the need to wear makeup at all!
These pictures featured don't look too severe, mostly because I avoided the camera at all costs. Would you want something so inflamed and unsightly staining someone else's photograph? So I only have a few pictures of my face with breakouts, at least that is how I wanted it to be. Also, I'm not wearing makeup in this video.
I'm Morgan and I am 16 years old (I started The Regimen when I was 15). I've never had a severe case of acne but I still used to get frequent pimples and my acne scars would never fade. I tried using cleansers and makeup to get rid of/help hide my acne but nothing worked for a long period of time.
I came across acne.org and The Regimen when I was searching for remedies. I read the stories and talked to my parents about trying the treatment and I ordered my first kit! For me it was a big deal. The kit is actually quite expensive by the time you get all the products and pay shipping (the shipping costs to New Zealand was almost more than the kit itself..) but I have never spent money more wisely.
Within the two months I had extremely dry flakey skin and it appeared to be getting worse before it got better but pimples were not as frequent.
It's been three-four months now (I think haha) and I only get a pimple probably once a month and it clears up in a day or two. I only need to use the treatment once or twice a week and my skin is so clear! Most of my really bad scars are also gone too.
Up to this point I've purchased two 1-month kits and one 3-month kit but they're lasting a week or two more than that.
I have nothing but positive remarks about The Regimen and I couldn't be happier with my skin now!
p.s. In both photos I am only wearing a light coverage BB cream, mascara and have filled in my eyebrows. There's no other makeup on my face :)

The Regimen literally saved my life. I was suffering from acne cosmetica, and at the time I was unaware that this condition existed. I kept thinking my diet was the cause of my acne, and/or my hormones. I tried everything from a dairy-free diet, to a juice diet, to birth control pills. Nothing seemed to be working. I even went to the dermatologist, and they gave me adapelene gel along with antibiotic pills. Still, the acne persisted. Even though I was taking the right measurements in trying to control my acne, the health care professionals never once asked me what cosmetics was I using. You see, I was taking birth control pills for years to control my acne, and it worked, but then I started to use MAC cosmetic products, and that's what unfortunately changed my skin. I began to gradually see more and more acne, but since I was so adament about my makeup routine I did not question that it was causing it. I began developing small fleshy bumps, that would flare up from time to causing major scabs and scarring. I was so embarrassed to leave my house! Then I found this site, and decided what do I have to lose! WOW, like just WOW. Dan obviously did his research cause his products 100% worked. My skin has never looked better. People compliment it all the time, and can not believe the results. This review is more for Dan to just say thank you so much for literally changing my life. Now, I no longer have to sit in front of the mirror obsessing and wishing that I looked like the "makeup gurus" on YouTube. Shoot! I feel like I look even better! I can leave the house looking natural and still feeling gorgeous. Thank you Dan!!!
I had acne on and off for 10 years and this is the first time my skin has been clear...I had severe cystic acne when i was 17-18 years old and I went on a round of accutane. It cleared up my skin pretty well but left really bad scarring. I did lasers for the scarring and it was moderately improved. Then, 3 years later my skin broke out again. I was getting pimples after pimples and it eventually spread all over my face again. I was so upset and so embarrassed with my skin once again. I tried everything all over again and no results. I decided to try the regime from acne.org because of the great reviews and the down to earth business model. I followed the regime religiously and saw results in just one month. By 3-4 months my skin was about 95% clear. Now i've been using the regime for 8 months and I rarely get pimples! It is a miracle product for me and I would really encourage everyone to give it a try! You MUST follow the instructions precisely! I'm so grateful for Dan and his products, he really saved my confidence!! I am more than happy to write this review for him because the regime TRULY works and you will be amazed with the results! Thank you again!

Getting off contraceptive pills has given me severe acne all of a sudden. I was so frustrated because summer was coming up and I didn't want to go out with acne on my face. I wasn't brave enough to take before pictures but I had about 10 to 15 pimples for over 2 months. New ones were coming out every day and new scars were formed because I couldn't help picking the pimples. After 2 months of usage (I used the whole set), my skin got so much better. The complexion is smoother and skin tone is more even now. I'm now just using the cleanser and AHA+ to prevent acne from coming back and to take care of the scar problem.
