I am a 31 year old female that has struggled with bad skin since my teens. However, after suffering a miscarriage last Spring, my skin went crazy and I have never had such bad acne. It became cystic and I couldn't believe I was now considered a "severe case." If you name the product line, I have tried it over the years. Nothing has ever really worked. I stumbled across this site and I followed the instructions and stuck with the program. After 3 1/2 months, I had no more breakouts. I was left with horrible red marks but I have stuck with the program and added Clinique's "Even Better" which has added that extra boost to the fading process. After 20 years of suffering from this issue, I am now able to look at myself in the mirror and not cringe. I am an executive with a Fortune 50 company and I finally look the part! I read the chats on this site and I have no idea why people are continuing to struggle and experiment with anything but Dan's products. If you stick to it and find the patience...it will work. Thank you doesn't even begin to acknowledge how grateful I am for these products. Easy, inexpensive and they work.
I really just wanted to write to you and say THANK YOU for putting this information up. At first I was skeptical about the information. I read letter after letter and finally just decided to give it a try. I'm 22, and I really started breaking out after high school. I've tried everything under the sun to clear it up, but everything just seems to make it worse. It really had a big effect on my self esteem and I was desperate to clear it up. I was about to go to my doctor to get a perscription for accutane, then I came upon your website. The thing I love best about your system is how inexpensive it is. I'm not spending 40 dollars a month on products anymore. I've only been using this system about a week now, and already I've seen a HUGE change. I just really can't thank you enough, you have no idea how much of an effect it's had on me. thank you thank you thank you!!!

I just turned 36 and FINALLY I have found a regimen that works! Like many, I was on Accutane which helped clear me substantially during the time I was taking it. However, no more than a month later I started breaking out again. It was a vicious cycle that I didn't want to experience again. You know, see the zit, scrub, look in the mirror, still the zit, stress out, get more zits, scrub harder...etc. I am from the old school where you thought that scrubbing helps get all the dirt out and the only way the meds will treat your skin is if you rub it in . I am happy to be wrong. I just wanted to say to Dan, Thank You. Who knew that washing gently along with BP and moisturizer would work so well. My husband commented on how the inflammation had gone down the very next day. I've been on The Regimen since Thanksgiving and had a few come up but found that they are much smaller in size and disappear much faster. Thanks again.

I was skeptical to try "the regimen" at first. Within the 2nd week my face was so dry I had to resort to using it only once a day and heavily moisturizing (on my already oily skin-type). It took about a month and a half to get completely clear, my face has adapted to the BP. I look so much better and even my red spots from previous ache has gone away!

I've never been motivated to write anything like this before, but after struggling with acne for so long, I feel the need to share my success story with Acne.org's products.
Like many of you, I've had acne since puberty. I went through my teenage years having never seen my face without a pimple. I couldn't even imagine what my face looked like without acne! My acne was so bad that I even had nightmares about it. I tried everything on the market but nothing worked, and the products that helped a little were extremely irritating to my skin. (My skin is super sensitive.) I at least looked on the bright side and figured my acne would go away once I was no longer a teenager, but it only got worse in my twenties. I finally went to see a dermatologist, but everything he prescribed to me either didn't work or gave me bad allergic reactions. I was about ready to give up; I even went and bought some makeup because I decided all I could do was cover the pimples instead of get rid of them.
As a last resort I went to Amazon, looked up the word "acne" and looked at products with the best reviews. One of the top products was Acne.org's regimen. I said to myself that if this didn't work, I would give up. Acne.org was my last try. I was wary because the active ingredient was benzoyl peroxide which is in many products I've tried with no success in the past. But somehow every step in the regimen works together, and within two weeks of using it I had no pimples.
I couldn't have dreamed of such fast results after trying everything else out there, including the so-called miracle drug for acne, Accutane (which gave me a very serious reaction, btw). I am sitting here typing today with no pimples on my face, which is the first time I've been pimple-free since I was 12 years old. I will say that because of my sensitive skin it took over two months for my skin to stop flaking from the benzoyl peroxide, but that's a good trade for having clear skin.
Dear Dan, Thanks to your regimen my 16 year old son's face is clear! We have tried everything - the dermo ( expensive anti-biotics and creams). Two weeks ago I took him off all of his prescription drugs and gave your treatment a try! For $15 at Wal-mart - why not? After just 2 days we saw improvement - and now his face is almost clear! Thanks again so much.

thanks, dan, for sharing your discovery. i started following your regimen 6 months ago and noticed a change in my skin after 2 weeks.
it's the best thing next to taking birth control pills, which i stopped doing a few years ago because i didn't want to quit smoking.
i thought that my acne was caused by hormones, stress, toxins leaving through my pours-i wasn't sure. all i knew was that i was sick from having to deal with my blemishes, from having to wake up and look in the mirror with hesitation, wondering how many new developments had come up since the night before.
it's baffling the attitudes people who don't have to worry about acne have toward those who do. is it sin related, a disease, punishment for a past life gone wrong?
after surrendering to my own ignorance on the subject of the acne i was suffering from, i decided to do some research. that's when i came upon your website-what ever did i do to deserve such an amazing solution that, up to that point, had been a life-long dilemma?!?
thanks again, dan. what a gift.
I'm not sure how I stumbled upon your website, but man I am glad I did. I've always struggled with facial acne, although it was never that bad, but it was my back acne that had me fearing the beaches. I was on every prescription imaginable, with nothing ever helping. After a few weeks on the regimen, my face had cleared up, but my back was still as it was. Looking at your website, it said to keep using the regimen even though it may not seem to work at the start, so I did. I am now on my second set of the regimen, and my back has nearly completely cleared up. I still have considerable scarring, but I am ecstatic that I no longer have to be in pain with a bookbag on, and can squat in the weight room with no additional annoyance (besides the weights that is :)). I can't express my exuberance enough.
This summer... I can't wait to hit the beaches!
Were do i start, I'm a female and I'm 22, i have been suffering with acne since i was 13. I tried everything that was in the high street stores, creams, cleansers spot creams everything!!! i went to the doctors and they gave me creams, pills and nothing worked, i was told to go and see a skin doctor,they gave me cream that burned my skin and made it peel really bad, but funny enough it didn't work.
Everyday i just carried on as normal, i was embarrassed to go out, i hated being in bright lighting and sometimes i would never go out if my spots were really bad!! And so i went back to the doctors and they put me on the pill, which is for acne as well as a contraception. All my big pimples and spots went i just had loads of small spots under my skin which still look horrible, i hated taking the pill because it made me feel sick when i took it. So after 6 years of being on the pill i came off it and then i just gave up hope. I don't have acne anymore but my cheeks are covered in little spots under the skin which look horrible and i had loads of blackheads, and i had the odd red pimple on my face. I stopped putting things on my skin because i knew nothing worked!!
Last week i had enough i was sick of hiding my face under my hair and feeling really crap about myself, i decided to go online and look up laser treatment for my skin. And then this site popped up from nowhere, so i decided to have a read and see what it was about. I read about you and your regime and then i read what other people had put and how it worked!! some of the people who wrote to you sounded a bit like me, at first i thought no way can this work. So i wrote down the gp gel and went to the chemist and bought some, i nothing to lose.
O my god!!!! well after a day my skin felt so soft and less bumpy, i have been using it for a week now and i feel so great!! my skin looks so clear and clean just after a week!!! thank you so much!! u are a saint i feel like me, and how Ive always wanted to be!!!

I just want to say thanks!! I am a 29 year old female and have been waiting for the day when I would be free of acne. Although I have never suffered from severe acne, I have sufferend from mild to moderate acne from the age of 13 and cannot remember a day when I had a clear face. I have tried many different over the counter treatments to no avail. I have tried everything from Aveda, Arbonne, Tea Tree and Proactive. Not only were those treatments costly, but they did not even come close to the results I have seen. The true test were the days leading up to my period. I just made it through clean and clear for the first time in my life. My face was dry for the first week or two of the regimen, but has now become accustomed to the regimen.
Thank you so much for letting us know of a system that is cost effective and so successful!
I am a teacher and have students with severe acne. I will be talking to my class about what I went through and what I did to overcome. Hopefully they to will benefit like I have.
