The Regimen works! While it may not be a cure for severe or aggressive acne, it definitely lessens the effects making the skin appear more clear within days of starting the Regimen.
My daughter was on Accutane two years ago. She was acne free for about 6 months. After that we were back to square one! Very frustrating to have gone through that level of treatment with literally NO long-term results. She began college out of state, so a second bout of Accutane wasn't an option. When she came home during spring break, the acne was worse than I've ever seen it. Very irritated looking skin with large dark red to purple areas with many eruptive spots. (Saturday)
In frustration, I got on-line to seek "home remedies" that would help her get through the spring semester until she came home for the summer and we could pursue other options. This is when I found you! I went out immediately to get the over-the counter products recommended. (Saturday night)
I had a discussion with her, citing much of the information provided in your on-line information. We discussed how to use the Regimen and how to keep irritants away from her face. I even recommended that she change her pillow case every couple days to keep any residue from haircare products off her face while sleeping. She began the Regimen the following day (Sunday).
After two-to-three days (Tuesday), there was a noticeable improvement. By Friday, people who saw her earlier in the week remarked how much improved her skin had become.
Because of the severity of her acne, we must pursue other avenues of treatment. However, I do believe that anyone with mild to moderate acne would benefit from the Regimen and anyone with severe acne who is limited or does not have other alternatives will see marked improvement.

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!
thank you so much for this wonderful website. i have recently turned 19 and i have been feeling more self concious about my acne. i am also obsessive compulsive about my skin so i have destroyed it many times over using products that serverly dry out my skin and just leave me with scabs instead of pimples. after reading all of the reviews on your website i was able to find the products that worked for me with no adverse effects!
Thank- you so much, you changed my life in the past week!
web sites always promise to clear acne in 7 days which never seems to work until i came across your web page!
your web pages helps alot of people, you should be proud!

Hi Dan! I am 26 and I have been battling acne for years. The last time I was totally clear was the 4th grade. I have tried everything, and I mean everything. For a long time last year I was using Tazorac and that had me really clear. Unfortunately the weather changed, and my skin started breaking out worse than ever, and started getting flaky to boot. I was embarrassed to go to work, and I knew people were staring at me in pity every time I went. I kept my face covered in lotion to stop the flakes but that only made my acne worse. I would cry all the time. I couldn't get an appt with my derm for months because he was so busy. Then I was surfing the web and I found your site, so I decided, why not, I've tried everything else. Your regimen has worked WONDERS. People have told me 'I'm so glad you got your skin together! The doctor really helped you out!' and they are surprised when I tell them I'm clear because of something I found on the internet. My skin has stopped producing huge pimples and I no longer feel the mass of new pimples under my skin ready to pop out. I get the occasional tiny breakout when I forget to change my pillowcases after 4 days but that is IT! I can't believe it. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! Sincerely,
Niki, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
hey, i'm one of your most devoted users, i've been using your regimen for about half a year now. I am newly 15 and i started getting acne the summer of 2000. It really wasn't bad at first but then it got worse, I had big huge lumps and i thought i'd have to go on accutane. I was scared because i heard it did stuff like make you sick and things like that, but one day i was surfing and i found your site and since wal-mart is down the street, i got the products quickly, I use your regimen and i am now clear of acne, but one thing is that you gotta keep doing it, for if you don't, you could break out. But man it's good to have clear skin. The little naive kids don't ask if you had the chicken pops :-). People with clear skin! Don't take advantage of it!!!
I debated about leaving a post because I didn't want to say all the same things that everyone else has. However, after using the regimen (treatment only) for a couple of months, I decided to go ahead and sound like a broken record.
Because this works! I poured over every aspect of this site before ordering the treatment. I was skeptical but have suffered from acne for as long as I can remember. With the great price, I decided to give it a try.
I am 31 and it seems like finally I have my acne problem under control. I have very oily, sensative skin. My biggest problem, however, is my obsession with it. After reading and trying my hardest to follow the advice on "picking", I really see a difference. I could tell that the treatment was working but my fingers were working against me.
My solution - stay out of the mirror! As my face clears up I find it less tempting to pick and am really seeing the results. I haven't even made it through my first bottle of treatment yet.
I did have an issue in the beginning with over-dryness and irritation. This was due to too much too fast. I re-read reviews and advice on the site, gave my skin a week to recover and started back using the treatment only at night. This works much better for my sensative skin. I continue to use my same face wash & moisturizer (Korres Brand). I've recently added this new peel off facial to my routine. It also seems to help with the dryness factor and gives me a glow like never before.
My final advice - give it time! Make the regimen fit into your schedule and personalize it a bit to your needs. The results are so worth it!
Just a quick thank you for this site. Somehow I knew when I found you were just simply passing on GOOD info from experience. That's what we needed. It has gotten my son totally clear. We simply stick to the routine with NO BREAKOUTS!
Hey dan, I recommended your regimen to my friend marina and printed her a copy of it. Well basically mate she has fell in love with you lol. She has seen really good results. As for me its coming along nicely, seeing that i have used bp before i could jump right in. Today i had a pain free shave because my spots are so much better.. My confidence has shot through the roof, my girlfriend was very pleased today lol. I tell you one thing, word is spreading about this site, well atleast you have a few more fans through my recommedations. I would say have a good day but it is night time here lol, laters mate.
I just want to say a big thank you.
I was one of those people who had tried everything: neutrogena products, spectro gel, clearasil and still had problem skin.
I started using aloette skin care products which worked at first and gradually my skin worsened. After switching to proactiv, things got worse and worse, until my skin was the worst it has ever been. I thought it was hopeless because proactiv is so highly recommended.
My boyfriend has been using Dan's products for several years and told me to try them. I finally listened to him, and after a couple months stopped getting any new zits altogether now the damage done by bad acne earlier, red marks and scarring, is disappearing. My skin is nearing normal, and I can look in the mirror without cringing, which wasn’t the case for a pretty long time.
Acne.org products have truly helped my self esteem and made an amazing improvement on my complexion. I would recommend these products above any others that I have used.

I am 28 years old and have struggled with acne since I was 18. Fortunately it has never been severe, mostly moderate and only on my chin. I had it somewhat under control while I was pregnant but once I had my son 7 months ago, my face went crazy! I tried EVERYTHING OTC, I have not tried prescriptions. I actually found this website months before I actually did it. I honestly didn't think it would work. I had been using BP for years, I didn't think this would make much of a difference. Well, I started this regimen 2 1/2 weeks ago out of desperation. My face is now 100% clear. It works that fast. I did get a very mild break out at the beginning of the second week but they cleared very fast. I still have scars but they are fading. I can't wait to see how my face looks in a month!
If this worked for me, it can work for anyone. Dan - thank you so much for this...you have given me my life back and now I can enjoy my son the way I want to! =)
