Although I had moderate acne, it was a stubborn case that took 3 months on the regimen to clear up. As soon as I started the regimen, my forehead was clear within a week. However, the acne on my cheeks resisted the treatment for at least a month. I began to get discouraged but the posts and blogs helped me keep up with the regimen without quitting. By the middle of my second month, I noticed that the acne of my cheeks had decreased in size and that it was no longer spreading. I also (per the blogs) switched to the clear skin gel on the website since the Neutrogena was giving me a pasty look that was slighty embarrassing on days when I was in a rush and had little time to adequately cover-up. Another month passed, I was increasing my BP steadily, until FINALLY the acne began dissapearing in days. It happened in less that 4 days at the end of month three. My face was COMPLETELY clear. I did not have one pimple. The change was rather sudden since the next few weeks people continued to tell me how beautiful my skin was (something I rarely EVER heard) and how they wished they had such great skin. My skin is SOFT (you wouldnt believe how soft) and it glows. I continue the regimine to keep up this gorgeous skin, but with smaller doses of BP.
I keep refering friends to this website and they are skeptical. I hope they get over themselves and try something that works.
THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!
I feel beautiful again.
If you are on your second month, DONT GIVE UP. Certain cases, as mine, take time and you will be blown away by the results. I researched this stuff and it is scientifically sound. There is no acne case that can resist this treatment. Trust me, I asked doctors and researched texts on acne. Most dermatologists, though, perscribe medication because the Pharm companies are BIG BUSINESS. You lose nothing by trying it, but you gain amazing skin WHEN it works. Because it WILL work.
I am 46, and up until last year, suffered acne on my chin constantly! I found an overnight cure and yes, I tried everything over the years my list of trials mimics yours!
I was rubbing my hands at work one day with an antibacterial lotion, I had a nasty big pimple on my chin and I put some on there too.
I put so more on before I went to bed, I thought, why not? Acne is a bacterial inflammation, can't hurt!
By morning the redness was gone, and instead of following the typical route, coming to a head, it was going down! In two days it was gone!
Typical routine ever since has been to apply some jell to my "typical" areas before bed and directly after a shower in the morning. A month supply costs about .99 cents, no skin dry outs and no chemical burns.
Its quite amazing really! I have my 17 year old doing it too and her adolescent acne has all but disappeared. Her boyfriend tried it and now his skin is clearing up.

I just wanted to let you know that this regimen has worked wonders for me! I am actually very surprised. I also have tried everything short of accutane - and nothing did the job. I have even tried perscription Benzoyl Peroxide products in the past, but I never paired them with a moisturizer. I was just sick of paying hundreds of dollars for products that only seemed to make my skin worse. I have been using Dan's regimen for 2 weeks and my skin is almost %100 clear. I didn't expect it to work that quickly. I recommend buying his product online - in the end you will save money because you get so much more. I stumbled upon this website by accident when I was researching different medications and their side effects. What I found is that ALL perscription acne medications (including birth control) appear to have an abundance of nasty side effects. The only side effect I have had on Dan's regimen is little patches of dry skin - but let me tell you - this sure beats the oily skin I experienced on Retin-A and Differin.
I have never posted on here before but I have been using your regimen for 7 years. I started at 13, now 21 and the difference it made within the first few months was just unbelievable. My skin is now super clear, in excellent condition and I still use the 3 products religiously every morning. I would like to say thank you. I sometimes see people around with bad acne and feel like shouting "go to acne.org!" to them.
Just wanted to let you know how much I love your products! I've always had some form of mild and cyctic acne, and spent years and lots of money trying other products to get the flawless skin I craved. I'm in my 30's, and it seemed the older I got the worse my acne became. I tried doing lots of online research trying to find something that would work. I tried herbs, creams from the dermatologist, and countless acne systems. I tried avoiding certain foods, and wearing my hair up all the time, avoiding touching my face, thinking that it would solve the problem. But what really made me upset was that I was trying so hard to do all these things, and all my friends who had perfect skin were eating what they wanted, wearing their hair down, and touching their faces without so much as an afterthought. I was really starting to lose hope… until I came across the acne.org web site. I had checked it out before, but I thought, hey, it's another web site promising the same old stuff again. I had just finished trying out another system that made my skin horrible, and thought, what have I got to lose. Well, I lost most, if not all of my stubborn acne in about a week and a half of using your products and trying the program! I'm so excited to see what happens in the next few weeks! What was really exciting exp for me was that I didn't have a horrible breakout right before my period like I have for years. No more cyst's and if something does pop up, it goes away while I sleep. Thank you so very much for coming up with these products and I hope they are around forever! I love that they don’t cost and arm and a leg as well!

I came across your website about 2 months ago. I have oily skin, and moderate acne with 1 or 2 bad blemishes and moderate rosesea under my eyes. I have dealt with this for 15 years. I have been through all the antibiotics and topicals, and was on the verge of accutane.
I started with the on-the-spot for a week until I got your BP gel.
The gel is great, and is sufficiently hydrated that I've found no need for the moisturizer. I endured maybe 2 days of mild irritation at the outset.
I spread the word to of The Regimen to whomever will listen.
I wish you the best. This will be a great success for you.

It's really all about the regimen. It just makes so much sense. I started having serious issues with acne when I was 14. I'm talking horrible cystic acne on my chin. So I started Proactiv which sort of worked. Kind of. The problem with Proactiv is the cleanser which is just a horribly irritating exfoliator. Nobody should be exfoliating their face two times a day. Anyways, so there I was slowly killing my skin until I clued in that the only thing that was helping was the benzoil peroxide. So I stopped using the other garbage and was only using the benzoil peroxide. Miracle. My face was beautiful. Beautiful. However, it didn't last as long as I would have liked because as I was increasing the amount of BP I was using, I wasn't getting a shipment of Proactive soon enough. So then I thought it just wasn't working anymore. I cancelled my account and tried different products for about a year. No good. Then last April, I found this site. And there it was; the words benzoil peroxide. So I went to the pharmacy and I bought the stuff Clean and Clear makes which is 5% but nonetheless... I had beautiful skin again just in time for my highschool graduation and it was the best feeling in the world. I've been using it ever since and I still get the same great benefits. The only problem I'd say is that the 5% really does increase my skin sensitivity but I havent been able to find any 2.5% bezoil peroxide anywhere close to home. So i'll settle. I've never had such beautiful skin and I just want to say thank you. This really does work. I gave myself a month with a good, oil-free moisturizer, and I saw amazing results. Thank you so much!
I just wanted to share my success story with you. I've suffered moderate acne ever since adolescence, and as I am very fair, you can see EVERY blemish, pre-blemish, post-blemish--in short, everything.
My birth control pills helped for a while, but then they stopped being effective, and I attributed this to menstrual-related acne, which apparently women can age into in their early 30s.
I would get all sorts of blemishes on my chin, my cheeks, along my jaw line, and a persistent rash of whiteheads on my forehead.
Desperate, I began following your regimen to the letter, and within a week, things were clearing up. I have been on the regimen about a month, and now, during the week when I should have an increase in oiliness and premenstrual blemishes, guess what? Nothing! Nothing at all! My colleagues and friends tell me I am glowing and ask if I am pregnant (I am not!). My young man tells me every morning and every night how much better I look.
I owe it all to you, and to your 2.5% benzoyl peroxide gel. Thank you so very much for this site and for making your products: your gel compared to the Neutrogena on the spot? No contest, you win hands down, every time! The moment I tried it, and had that great silky gel to move around instead of that caking, clumping white cream to work with, I knew I hit the jackpot!
I am 33 years old and I don't think I have ever looked better! I don't wear makeup anymore! No foundation, no powder, no concealer (my eye make-up of course, but that is enhancement, not concealment). Thank you, thank you, and thank you!
Warmest regards and deepest thanks,
Allison, New York, NY
I love the regiment. I started the regiment about 3 weeks ago and my face is so clear, I can't believe this is my face!!, lol. I first started with the Neutrogena On-the-Spot but acne.org bp is so much better. I can't wait until the new products your developing are out, I'm planing on trying all of them. I'm just so happy. I will be telling everybody about this web site and how amazing it is. Thank you so much and keep up the great work.

Really just want to thank you again for your caring advice. I wrote before detailing my success with your regime. More than two-years on, and I am still following it and remain clear of the visible signs of acne.
Like you, the underlying process is still with me (I am now 51...) and I don't expect it to disappear. Yet, armed with your regime, I am able to manage the condition so effectively that I barely give it a second thought. Another plus is that I have been able to point the teenage children of friends and relatives to your site, as they have encountered their own moderate acne problems. If they follow your advice, they achieve their goal of cleared skin and managed acne. This morning, I advised another friend to look at your site to help with her son's newly-presenting moderate acne. I am confident it will provide the solution he needs.
Thank you, Dan. Have a great Christmas and a purposeful and safe New Year.
