Just wanted to give you a BIG "shout out" for your products! My daughter is almost 15 and has had problems with cystic acne for about three years. We have tried Proactiv with some minor changes only to have the acne return after three months. We have also been to a dermatologist, and my daughter was placed on Differin and monocycline. After a month of the burning, stinging, RED, cracking skin, and seeing my daughter in pain, we stopped that program. I found your website by "accident" surfing the web looking at different acne products. Showed the videos to my daughter to see what she thought, and to see if she would be able to follow the steps. I have to THANK YOU for making everything so EASY to follow. We are now about 7 weeks into the regimen and what an AMAZING improvement! My daughter's skin has NEVER been clearer. She may occasionaly have on or two cysts, but by using the AHA on them, after a day or two, they are gone! We are amazed at how clear and SMOOTH her skin is. She is absolutely RADIANT. I just wanted to "take the time" and say THANK YOU so much. I have just placed an order for our SECOND supply. It REALLY does LAST as long as you say it will. Almost 2 MONTHS on the 8 oz. sizes. THANK YOU for not making this product about THE MONEY and for really CARING for the person. Thank you so much....I've seen her confidence boosted, and her SMILE return! God Bless! John :)

Thank you Dan, because of you and this website my skin is now clear. As in NO PIMPLES (except for a few nose blackheads, but really, what acne sufferer would care about that). Thank you thank you thank you!!!
I am a young woman who has had acne since she was twelve. I know what a toll it takes on your self esteem and confidence. My acne was mild most of my life but became moderate in my early twenties, mainly concentrated in the chin area. I felt unattractive all the time, and I thought about my skin constantly--it genuinely took over my life. Now I hardly think about my skin at all. I don't have to worry about my roommates seeing my face in the morning or about when I can exercise without makeup on without anyone seeing my skin. I don't have to worry about resting my chin in my hand or changing pillowcases every night because now that I'm on the regimen those things don't matter.
I've always wished to be able to feel confident & attractive without makeup on. Now I NEVER WEAR MAKEUP (except on my eyes--no foundation or concealer whatsoever). That saves me time and money, but beyond all these things I really feel so much more free. Some people think acne is just a skin condition, but it isn't--if you have bad acne it takes over your whole life. If affects so many things that you do and think.
I really encourage anyone having doubts right now to go on the regimen. If you're worried about the harshness of BP--that does suck at first. My skin was red and flaky for several weeks. But please don't be put off by that. My only regret in this whole thing is that it took me so long to try the regimen. My skin could have been clear so much sooner.

To Whom it may concern,
A friend of ours was visiting and accidentally left his bottle of cleanser at our house. We asked him if he'd like us to ship it to him and he said don't bother he had another at home. So my husband and I both started using the cleanser and were amazed! We live in a very dry climate and did not have acne problems. The cleanser was so mild that we did not have to use lotion afterwards. We noticed the reduction of black heads and the overall appearance and feel of our skin improve. While using the cleanser, I was pregnant with my third child and if you know much about pregnancy it takes a toll on your hair and skin. The cleanser was mild and adjusted with my ever changing skin from my changing hormones during pregnancy! We have since recommended it to many others. Thank you for this product!

I had mild acne for the last 3 years but my acne all of the sudden went crazy when I had a few vaccinations last year. It may have upset my body temperature or hormones..not sure what happened but my acne became moderate at that point.
I used proactive before, worked for a while but then not anymore. It seems like my skin got used to it OR perhaps I was not using enough as you suggest in your website.
Anyway, I bought your 2.5 percent gel and I have been doing the required amount for 4 days now. It is helping me greatly. I still have 3 or so pimples but those are old and they are going away slowly but nonetheless, still going away.
I am using Jojoba oil for moisturizer, Cetaphil hurt my skil *Very sensitive* and my neck broke into a rash for some reason..
Anyways, Thank you for explaining your regimen. Much appreciation. I hope this bp will always kill the bacteria in my skin so things never go back to what they were before.
Take Care, and Keep up the good work!

First of all, I just wanted to thank you Dan, for taking the time to not only trying to find a solution for yourself but also for others suffering with acne. Your persistance in creating quality and affordable products really shows. I went through all my teenage years without acne, until the age of about 18 when I started to get acne and it really through me for a loop. I tried EVERYTHING, with little success. Some products even made the acne worse, to the point of sensitizing my skin. I just decided that I was just gonna give up and settle with the skin I had, until accidentally coming across your website. The way that you explained the products and procedures really intrigued me.So I ordered the products and hoped for the best. I was so impressed with the results right away. I, fortunately had no sensitivity to the BP, just a little dryness. That eventually faded away. My skin got better and better. The jojoba oil is amazing, by the way, thank you for providing theese extra products, its an amazing compliment to the entire line. I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate you. thanks
Can't believe I only have one tiny pimple! I have tried everything....I was even on Accutane three times (it worked but the zits came back mildly). I have tried Proactive, Murad, Clearasil Line, Neutrogena Line....I have spent thousands of dollars! I am sort of annoyed that my program cost like 10 bucks now!--I use the Purpose soap which lasts forever and Clean and Clear zit formula (I used the Neutrogena but it stopped working...I find this product to work well)....My skin is nice, but still has marks! Any suggestions! God Bless you Dan...keep suggestions coming if you got anymore!
I recently broke out bad around my jawline and throat area. I've broken out in the past but this time, it was pretty bad. When I say bad, I'm talking about what you termed 'severe acne'. I just couldn't figure what I had done to trigger this breakout. At 36, I thought I'd passed that 'acne phase'. I guess there's no such thing. I have to say that my confidence took a big hit. I tried just about everything, short of accutane. I even tried that blue light therapy at the dermatologist's office. For those who are contemplating this therapy: DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
So I came across your site three months ago. I, like others who have posted their success stories on your site, was highly skeptical. I mean, I'd tried just about everything already and the results had been extremely discouraging. Then I realized I had nothing to lose, other than the acne itself. After the first month, I saw minimal gains. For encouragement, I would read the success stories of other people. Then the second month came and passed. I began to see noticeable changes. Again, I kept reading the success stories for encouragement. Now it's reached the end of the third month and the results have been dramatic. My face is clear now. It's just amazing.
To any acne sufferer who happens to read this. The moral of my story is to not give up and give the regimen time to work. It is very easy to get frustrated and give up on it. Believe me, I was there. DO NOT GIVE UP, NO MATTER WHAT!!! Follow the regimen exactly as it is described. The combination that seemed to work for me is the Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar, Clear Skin Regimen Gel and Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer. Other than the Clear Skin Regimen Gel, you can get the other products at Drugstore.com
Dan, I cannot thank you enough for what you and your site has done for me. You are THE MAN. Take care and continue to do the good that you do. God bless...

Dan, you are my saviour.
At the age of 20 I began developing extremely scarring cystic acne on both sides of my cheeks. Before that (in high school) I would get the occasional whitehead or two and plenty of blackheads. But this time it was extremely bad. It wouldn't go away and I didn't know why. I remember not wanting to leave the house because I was so sure that everyone was always staring at my huge red acne. I used expensive department store regimens, ProActiv, Murad. Doctors prescribed doxycycline and tretinoin cream. I even did some $300 IPL treatment. Nothing worked.
I had a friend with the same problem who heard about your regimen through another friend. She started using it and her face cleared up dramatically. I was still a little skeptical; afterall, I spent thousands of dollars on countless products and procedures and none of them worked.
I'm 23 now. About 9 months ago I ordered your products and started using them. I am proud to say that my face is 100% acne free. The only things that remain are my scars. But I am confident and beautiful once again.
I tell EVERYONE that I know with acne problems about your regimen. Please let me know how else I can help to spread the word.
You are AWESOME.
Thanks again for helping me get my life back.

Hey Dan. I just want to say thanks for introducing me to an alternative to Proactiv. Aside from the high cost, my face seem to have developed an immune to the medication after almost a year of using the product. I was frantic trying to find a solution to my pimples on my forehead and chin. I came across your website from a random search and was skeptical in the beginning, but thought I had nothing to lose if I gave it a try(only about 10 dollars for the bottle of benzoyl peroxide.) It's been almost 3 months and my face has cleared up drastically. The pimples on my forehead are gone! I love washing my face now because it feels so smooth! One thing I've altered to the regimen is using the B.P. once a day at night. It seems to work for me that way. You have saved me from embarassment. Now I am not afraid to tie my hair up and show off my new found skin. Thanks!
Your product has helped me tremendously, since I ordered it has changed my life. I would normally get pimples on my face almost every day, but since I started using your treatment I can say that I’m acne free. Amazing! Throughout the years I have tried many products as well as antibiotics and nothing seems to work, but thank God and you that I found your treatment because it has made a big difference in my life. Now, I’m more confident and of course my self-esteem increased very rapidly.
Again I can’t thank you enough for developing this fantastic product.
Thank you again and again!
