Your products are so great!
After 6 weeks on the regimen, my pimples have disappeared! I used to break out every month and now that is a distant memory. I went from using the Treatment twice a day to only at night because my skin has improved so much. I use the AHA in the morning in place of the Treatment.
I hope you are working on a dark mark/scar eraser for those zits we used to have that are still visible. My dream!!
I love these products, I just ordered a kit for my niece and I hope she has as much success as I have had.
Thanks, your website is great too.

I have struggled with acne since I was 13. My father had cystic acne and his cleared at 21 so I just assumed that mine would clear over time. Was I WRONG!!! By my mid 20's I was realizing that I was not simply going to "grow out of it" like I always expected. I tried all kinds of remedies including antibiotics (internal and topical), Retin-A, vitamins/herbs, and all the typical over the counter products (used as directed) and the side effects were so severe with each of these products that I was thinking that perhaps the "cure" was worse than the disease. I was at my wit's end when I started to scan the internet trying to find any information that might deliver me. I found your site and my life changed...AND my skin!!! I was skeptical that this regimen would really deliver but it worked almost immediately! I have used the regimen since 2001 and it has been like "Old Faithful" to me. I am 32 now and although I still must use the regimen to keep my skin clear I am so g!
rateful for your advice and your willingness to help others...THANK_YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've been on your regimen for about one year, I think. It works. Other topical treatments controlled the number of breakouts I had but did not get rid of them compeletely. Those prescribed by doctors like Stevamycin were too harsh for my sensitive skin. Although accutane worked for me, after about four months of going off the drug, the unwelcome visitors started creeping back in. In my case, using your regimen, the progress was gradual - first the number of breakouts decreased, then after about a month, they stopped altogether.The healing process might have been faster if I stuck to one BP gel but I'd run out of the Spectro-Jel 2.5% gel and would have to use my left over Hydrogel 4% in the meanwhile etc. My skin didn't like that. Anyhoo, I'm using your 4oz BP gel now, and I don't have a single complaint, plus it lasts for months. I found that my skin was getting really dry after the first month. I was initially on the Cetaphil daily moisturizer but that wasn't strong enough - I would flake. Then I went on Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion with AHA and multivitamins and although that worked the best for me, it wasn't enough so I gradually reduced the amount the BP gel I used (like you recommended) to a third of the usual dose. That helped a bit. I then switched to using the BP gel every mornings and the Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizeer (or Cetaphil) at night. My skin is happy now. The brown spots from my acne days are clearing up nicely, albeit slowly. I don't want to use a hydroquinone cream or a harsh exfoliant: 4% AHA causes me to break out, so I'll just have to be patient. Sometimes I look in the mirror and I'm like Wow! I think I'm beginning to take clear skin for granted - that's when I get lazy and don't wash before bedtime, but then I usually get a pimple as punishment!
To cut the long story short, thank you VERY VERY MUCH. I have clear skin, and the products are affordable.

I just want to thank you soooo much for your wonderful advice. I am seriously thankful to the point of tears right now. I have had acne since my teens and I thought that it was a phase that I would eventually grow out of. Unfortunately, at 23 years old the acne still remained. In fact, it only got worse. I spent a ton of money buying every product imaginable. I tried almost everything in the local drugstore, proactive, differen, clindagel- you name it, I tried it. Nothing worked. Prescriptions from the dermatologist only seemed to work temporarily. It was very depressing because I felt that if a dermatologist couldn't help me, no one could. Then I came across your website. I didn't expect it to work because I used products with benzoyl peroxide before with no results. However, I decided to give it a try and followed your regimen exactly and my skin looks beautiful! It has only been two days and I have seen dramatic results. Thank you so much Dan. You are truly a blessing!!!
I used to have terrible break outs. I tried prescription medicines, products advertised on TV, but nothing ever worked. My mom found your website five years ago and that is when I started following your regimen. I don't remember when I noticed it working, but I know that my skin has been clear for a VERY long time and I swear by your acne gel and recommend it to all of my friends. Finally something that ACTUALLY works! Thank you!

I know I'm going to sound like everyone else, but I must thank you for everything: your experimentation and research, your willingness to share the regimen, your persistence for selling economy-sized benzoyl peroxide. What a gift!
I had acne for 15 years and had four dermatologists. I tried (in order):
- Accutane (5, yes 5, complete courses)
- EVERY prescription and non-prescription cream, gel, potion, rub, astringent, tea, etc.
- Zinc, B-complex
- Low Glycemic diet (the no fun diet)
- No-grain diet (Hell on Earth)
The acne would sometimes change, but at best, I still had at least 5 active blemishes.
A particular low point was when my dermatologist looked through my medication history and said, Well, maybe you should try a Haitian witch doctor. - Ha! Ha! I replied in tears.
Within about two weeks on your regimen, my face was completely free of active blemishes and after two months, I'm starting to consider myself (almost) a non-acne person. I haven't cried about my skin in two months (a record)!
I will continue to purchase your BP gel for the rest of my life - please continue to sell it!
Hi Dan, I'm 26 years old and have had moderate acne breakouts since I was about 15. I've tried most perscriptions.. Benzomyacin, Benzoclin, Differin, Tazacor, and Retin-A, topically; Erythromyacin, Minocycline, and Tetracylcine orally; and many many over the counter products including Pro-Active (which is irritating to order with their stupid "club" sending your more when you don't need it) and Burt's Bees all natural skin regimen (which smells great.. but didn't clear up my acne). The only product that ever worked for me was Benzomyacin but it has to be refrigerated for it's effectiveness to stay potent and I have a job that requires a lot of travel so this was difficult for me. I kept stopping treatment and the acne kept coming back. I was having my latest breakout at age 25 when I decided to do some research of my own and found your website. I tried your regimen and your benzoyl peroxide treatment and now my skin is clearer than ever before! I am truly amazed. I just have to keep using the gel... because I still get breakouts as soon as I stop, but your gel is easy to apply and travel with so I've finally be able to keep up the regimen. Thanks!
I stumbled across this website in the summer of this year (2008) when I was looking for acne cures. Acne randomly just came on for what seemed to be no reason (I'm 22 and have always ahd a spot or two but never anything that majorly bothered me) anyway after trying what seemed to be every other topical treatment including stuff prescribed from the GP, I decided to give this a go as a last resort before oral medication. My skin was looking a lot clearer in the first week and was looking great after the redness and soreness subsided. I managed to get what seemed to be constant flaking sorted by only applying BP at night. 8 weeks on and I don't think of acne any more! This is such a great treatment and I, like others are so glad that you have shared it with everyone! You have improved my life!

Hey Dan, I'm 26 y/o, living in Brooklyn, NY, and I've struggled with acne for the last ten years. I was pretty skeptical when I stumbled onto your website, but I was at the end of my rope, and I figured hey, give it a try. I had an old tube of 5% BP leftover in a drawer from when I was a teenager, and I gave slathered it all over my face one morning before work. Well my face turned all red and I freaked out, but I put on some moisturizer and within an hour it was fine, and by the next day i was WAY clearer. I bought a bottle of your treatment and started using the regimen at night (I couldn't do the bleached clothes from wearing it during the day, but bleached towels and sheets aren't a big deal) Anyway...
I am SO CLEAR now, Dan. This is amazing. I wish I had discovered this ten years ago. I had my doubts with all the positive success stories on the website; it seemed too good to be true. This is becoming the best summer I've ever had. I'm so confident now, it's been a major life change.
Thanks so much, your work it very important and it has really made a difference in my life.

Wow, IT REALY WORKS!!!! I am a 25 year old female who all threw highschool had great skin to die for. Once I turned 20 my skin started breaking out. I spend so much money at fine department stores buying all kinds of products. I have used Clinique, Estee Lauder, Ultima II to name a few. Nothing worked. But after only 7 days of following your routine my skin looks great again. It's like the old me is back. I am going to pass this on to all my friends. You are a real life saver. People keep saying wow your skin looks great. I haven't heard that in 5 years. Thanks.
