I don't usually submit reviews, but I feel compelled to.
My 13-year-old son had very bad, cystic-like acne for months and I've wasted probably over $300 trying every product out there. His bad complexion was starting to affect his behavior and demeanor and I was getting desperate. Finally, I did what any social media addict would do, I posted it on Facebook as my status, asking for help and advice!! I think on that post alone, I received over 50 replies with recommendations from toothpaste to Pro-active to retin-A. Finally, one post stood out from an old co-worker of mine. She very simply said, "I have a very simple solution for you. Try acne.org, it worked for my son and we haven't looked back."
I looked at your website, saw that the prices were VERY reasonable and thought - what the heck, I might as well try it. Well two months later? MY SON'S FACE IS COMPLETELY CLEAR.
I can't even tell you how grateful I am to your product and I recommend it to everyone that asks about the improvement to his face! I have a 9-year-old daughter and I know when her pre-teen acne comes, I will be ready!

Hi Dan, I wanted to thank you for this website. I was desperate, searching the internet for a cure of some sort that the dermatologist didn't know about. I've been on everything but accutane and was scared to go that route. I was skeptical and figured that your regimen would burn my face and make me worse than ever. I had to give it a try, because my current methods were not working and my pimples were counted at a record 22 on my face. I went to Walmart and bought Walmart's version of cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer. I also got the generic acne treatment, at 10% benzo perox. In total the whole purchase was around $8. I've been doing you regimen for 3 weeks, and was mostly clear within 1 week. It ached a little at first, but I was okay. This is amazing, you've saved me a ton of embarrassment and most likely alot of money that I would spend at the doctors office. Now I only have 1 pimple and I'm grateful to you for it. Thanks!
I just wanted to say that since using your product my skin has never looked better. I'm 30; I've had acne, multiple types, since I was 12. Tried everything - including Accutane 2x - and nothing has worked until now. I just moved to Oz from Canada and I just bought the large size plus travel kit and jojoba oil and confidently paid $142 including shipping (which doubled in price) but I don't mind because I know it's going to continue to give me beautiful skin.
Thanks so much for providing this product and for creating something that actually works. :D

Thank God we found your book in the library!
My 13 year old son has had acne now for about a year and it was just getting worse as he grew. We already had been to the doctor and had started a round of antibiotics that were not really helping. After about 7 weeks of the regimen with products we had at home and from the local store, his face has drastically improved and getting better every day and his back is starting to show great improvement as well. We tried your products last month and love them! I just got finished ordering some more.
I am writing to thank you, to tell you I appreciate your approach and your caring about helping others, making a great product and keeping it affordable. You are helping, truly, to change lives!
I am taking photos so my son can see the difference in his skin as it continues to improve (yeah!)
I am so glad you came out with this product. I do not have very bad acne, but I do have it on my face. I am very self concious about how I look. So, when the acne started I couldn't take it. I tried Clearasil, Stridex, Proactive, Clean & clear and more. I found out about your products by a friend that had acne for years severly, and his face looks so much better. I started using it, and within a couple weeks all of my acne started going away. You can barely tell I have it now. I have used this maybe a month, and it had great results. I couldn't believe it. I didn't think I was ever going to get rid of it. I thank you so much for making this, and I am so glad I found out about it. Proactive I thought would be the answer, but it just made my face alot worse. Your product has made my face look so much better, and there is barely any now. I do not even use anything to cover it up when I leave for the day. Thank you so much!!
I found this site just looking for suggestions, I have always had moderate problems with acne.
I knew that dairy was making it worse and after I cut that out of my diet my acne did improve, but not go away completely.
I took the basic suggestion of the regimen on this site, went to the drug store and got the Cetaphil gentle cleanser and Daily Lotion with SPF15 in it.. and I also got Clean and Clear PersaGel with 5% BP. (Closest thing I could find to 'a gel with 2.5%).
Took it all home and jsut begen the steps twice daily. Within DAYS and I mean 3 DAYS... it became obvious that my skin was clearing up and now its almost PERFICT.
I would never have gotten these products without suggestion to, and I would still be suffering if it was not from this site.
In the past I spent money on acne pills, creams, dermatologist reccomended percriptions.. EVERYTHING you can imagine, right down to swimming alot after being told that the chlorine would dry out my acne and clear it up.
Its amazing to me that such a simple and CHEAP method could be the answer and it was so easy all along.
PROACTIVE IS A WASTE OF MONEY.
A few simple, cheap things from a drug store is all you need!
THANK YOU ACNE.ORG!!!

First and foremost, I am not on the Regimen...yet. I say yet because I received your AHA+ in the mail on Tuesday. It is now Friday and I have to tell you that I am AMAZED at what a few days with this product has done for my skin. I am 20 years old and suffer from moderately acne that is primarily hormonal but extremely product-sensitive. Like you, I have tried pretty much everything under the sun: over-the-counter acne products from Neutrogena/Clean&Clear/similar brands, topical antibiotics like Clindamycin from the dermatologist, retinoids like Retin-A and Retin-A Micro, natural/home remedies, you name it. Nothing has really given me significant, sustained success before. My acne has improved some with age (I've been dealing with it since I was 11), but it can still break out pretty badly. I was using Retin-A every night up until this last Tuesday just so I would have SOME control over my skin.
Enter AHA+. Using this once a day, at night, every night since receiving it (4 days) has done more for my skin than MONTHS on prescription retinoids. My acne is not entirely clear yet, but already I have noticed softer skin, decreased redness, faded acne marks, and an overall "glow" to my skin that was not there before. I have stopped my prescription medications, which were costly and not really doing their job to my satisfaction, in favor of your AHA. I was very skeptical when I was looking at your products, thinking, "Just more acne products that promise amazing results and either do nothing or make it worse." I'm glad I took the risk to try it. I can only imagine what another few weeks using this will do. I am also looking forward to trying your other products and seeing if they are as wonderful as this is. Thank you SO much for creating this product. Please don't ever discontinue it or change it. It is a genuinely good, well-formulated, solid product that *does what it says it will do* -- a very rare thing in the world of acne skincare products!

I developed acne when I was 15 and I've tried every "cure" since. I'm now 33 and I've been on the BP regimen for 2 weeks and my skin is completely clear. I can't believe how good my skin looks. I don't need to wear inches of make up any more to cover it. I have a more confidence and freedom now. I feel like a normal person at last instead of an ugly freak. I tried BP many years ago but I couldn't cope with the excessive dry, flaky skin. My dermotologist advised me to use a strong moisturizer but that was it. I was uaing E45 cream which unbeknown to me at the time, clogs pores and makes acne worse. I was stuck in a catch 22 position. I now use jojoba oil on my skin first before applying the BP, then I use an oil free moisturizer. My skin is spot and flaky skin free.
I bought the lotion last week and in the five days I've used it, I have not had a breakout even now on my 6th day. There is dryness, but nothing that can be solved with a really good moisturizer. Thank you.
Dan, thank you so much, Your program has helped me so much. I am an eighteen year old and recently graduated from High School. I was going through all the Graduation parties, my own grad party, and graduation itself and I was getting tired of acne. Ever since I got into High School I have been battling Acne. I would go 1-2 weeks with very light Acne, just a few light pimples everyday. After a couple weeks everything broke lose and i would get an awful breakout. As these years went by it toned down a little. After I graduated it started to come back. I managed to keep it down somewhat. Then i came across your site and decided i might as well give it a try. I have only been on the routine 3 days and my skin is almost flawless. It is still kind of getting used to the BP, but all the acne i had before is gone and I have only gotten a couple more pimples that do not make it past a very faint red dot before the BP kills them! I am very grateful for your decision to share your routine with everyone!
