Just a quick note to say that the regime does actually work, I'm 22 and my teenage acne hasn't quite subsided yet. Upon the first week or so of applying quite a vast amount of benzyl peroxide gel (2.5%), I think my skin actually developed a mild chemical burn, this added to the fact that I was on a holiday and would be in the sun a lot did not help! However I immediately got some Jojoba Oil, and this, in all honesty, is the secret to long-term benzyl peroxide use.
A tip to anyone wanting to start the regime, 2 - 3 drops of Jojoba oil prior to applying the gel will save you a lot of flakiness/dryness, and jojoba actually combats over-production of sebum. I'm a religious moisturiser-applier, but I have to say Jojoba oil really does hydrate my skin to levels hitherto unknown! I've been on the regime for 2 weeks now, and although I'm not completely acne-free (the chemical burn has made me a bit cautious in over-applying the benzyl peroxide), the improvement is vast.
My skin, for the first time, is glowing, but not oily, and the subsiding acne is really a relief. Thanks a lot.
I get spurts where I have acne and I used your method and its going all away...I find that I feel better about my face with NO cover up or makup.
I am 33 years old and have had severe cystic acne for over 20 years. I had a major pizza face for decades and have tried EVERYTHING...every over-the-counter and prescription remedy available. I am a middle school teacher and always had more acne than my students! My brother and I both started doing your regimen about 3 months ago and I am thrilled to report that we are both almost acne-free for the first time in our entire lives. Thank you Dan for your regimen...YOU ARE MY HERO!!!!!
Well I barely just started using the regimen this is about my fourth day now. And I have really noticed an improvement in my skin. Im not going to lie to I still have a little bit of Acne ,but I mean it's barely the fourth day and my skin has never really looked healthier. I have tried everything and for some reason I feel that this is going to be the one that helps me clear my acne. With all the other products it was never brought to my attention how important it is not to irritate the skin. So far so good =). So I am going to continue following the regimen and give another post in about a month to share with you all my progress.
Greetings, I have to share with you my complete confidence in your products! I previously used Neutrogena on the spot (for over 10 years). It's consistency is so different from your product. The difference is like night and day. Neutrogena: thick, white, pasty, sometimes lumpy and gritty. Yours: smooth, easily absorbed, clear and a perfect consistency. And yours works better than anything I've ever used.
Thank you so much for offering the public a product for women who like to also use a little makeup. My skin is "primed" and ready for makeup soon after application. The texture of my skin is also improved. I love it!
You are the only company I know of that offers just what a person suffering with acne needs--a pure system that works.
You are providing really nice medicines..
I just wanted to say thank you and yoru site is about the best website I've found regarding ANYTHING!
Thanks for the information, well written!

Dan, I could go on and on about your products and protocol for clear skin but I'll be succinct.
Thank you very much for making quality anti-acne products that work wonderfully well and are so reasonably priced (you could easily charge more but I believe you truly wish to help people---amazing---God bless you.) My skin looks great and I couldn't be happier. I frequently recommend your products.
Now that my skin is clear---when are you going to create some anti-aging products that actually work, lol?! We'll be anxiously waiting...
I didn't start having acne problems until I turned 24. I was moving across the country and was really stressed out. I tried everything from vitamins to visiting the derm and nothing worked. Admittedly, my situation was not as dire as some that I've seen, but to me it was pretty horrific. In a desperate attempt to get some relief, I googled acne and found this site. The regimen seemed too easy...but I tried it. At first, I didn't see the results that I hoped for. My skin did clear up a little and the condition improved, but I still had quite a problem. I went back to the site though and realized that I hadn't been using enough medicated cream. That night, I left it on thick and the next morning (I am not joking) there was a marked improvement. I have been pretty much blemish free for three months and my skin is in amazing condition. I have told everyone I know about this...even those with great skin and they've all been quite pleased.
I was on accutane for some time about 10 years ago. My acne went away for the longest time but recently came back a couple months ago. I started to go into panic mode and was buying what I thought would be the best OTC products and started washing away. My acne got worse and worse until I found this site. Thank you Dan for teaching me how to wash my face effectively!!! I used to use a pretty harsh soap (for my skin type) along with the strongest BP% on the market! Once I learned that you just have to lightly rub your face with a gentle soap and use a very minimal amount of BP, my acne virtually disappeared! Unbelievable how not knowing a basic function like washing your face can contribute to your problem.
Anyways, thank you again and I am going to pass this site to everyone I speak to on message boards across the net.
