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 Danny, Can't really believe my eyes when I started your regimen. I have recommended your regimen to my friends with the same plight as me. But I realise that the regimen must be dutifully carried out and it works for asians as well! Thanks so much for your site-same feeling as almost everyone -skeptical but still desperate to try it! Thank goodness I tried because I had used benzoyl peroxide(10%) before but ended up with irritated skin. Not only has it cleared my face but my skin tone is so much better. I even took some before and after pics and it was really differrent! Right now your site has been added into my favourites in my web browser!
I am writing to you, four days in, and I just wanted to tell you that your regimine has given me results that I have never had; especially in such a short amount of time.
I suffered with mild acne during my teen years and had cystic acne in my early twenties, on my face and on my back. I am currently 36, and have tried just about everything. I did two rounds of accutane; first with excellent results and then about six years later with so-so results. During the hurricane, (fortunately, I live in an area that wasn't affected with power loss - but I was landlocked), I watched endless youtube videos about make-up and one girl mentioned your product. I came to your website and realized that I had used many of the products you suggest (specifically benxoylperoxide and cethaphil) but not like how described. I recalled the benzoyl wash that cleared my back acne prior to my first accutane treatment and wondered why it hadn't worked for my face. However, the accutance did, but didnt prevent the years of acne breakouts that followed, even after my second round.
I went out to get cethaphil, neutrogena on-the-spot tx, oil of olay moisturizer and jojoba oil and began the regimine and let me tell you (what you already know) MY SKIN HAS NEVER LOOKED THIS CLEAR!!!! and I have every faith that in the next few months it will not only get clearer, but the break outs will cease. I intend to order your alphahydroxide and your gel bp.
Currently, I don't have any flaking, but my face is a little itchy and I am making a concious effort to stop touching my face. I never thought I could use a moisturizer everyday, especially twice a day; but so far, so GREAT. I wish I knew about this fifteen years ago but glad I know about it now.
I join the rest of the community in saluting you. I dont have pictures because I never took pictures during a breakout or without makeup.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!
After YEARS of visits to the dermatologist, hundreds of bottles of oral medication and topical creams that could fill a whole room, this simple over the counter step by step regimen COMPLETELY cleared up my acne.
I just wish I had known about this sooner!
First off I just want to say that you have done an awesome thing with this website and sharing your knowledge, along with creating and providing the EXCELLENT products. My treatment history is strikingly similar to yours, including acne returning after accutane. Even took a second course.
I actually discovered years ago that proactive cleared me up and was a long time user. That was until I came across your site and started using your products and following your advice. My skin went from clear to AMAZINGLY clear. And for way less $$! Way to go.
For reasons I still don't understand, I recently decided to give retin a micro a shot. Guess I was just so used to being acne free, and wanted to see what would happen. What a mistake. Stuck with it for a few months, but alas, I'm back on the Regimen. Learned my lesson.
Keep up the good work, and please NEVER stop selling your products! They are absolutely the best anywhere..
I used to accept that my skin went in cycles. One day it would be great and i would enjoy the confidence and go out. Other times it was bad and although i didn't like to admit it, it did affect my self-esteem. I have been on clearisil but it had a nasty affect of 'chemically burning' under my skin.
I think this was due to the topical cream absorbing into some shaving knicks. The doctor prescribed these antibiotics, no side affects but neither was it effective. Well ever since then i've ONLY EVER used water to wash my face with a facial towel. That had been fine until i recently started exercising and my face broke out.... 4 years after juss make doing with water.
ANYWAY, i came accross the net and i found ur regimen. I gave it a shot, and it is working. I'm managing my skin it its fantastic. THank you so much for sharing this on the internet i will spread the word. Like in another email i saw i juss want to say thanks again for not keeping this to yourself and helping many others out there. I would have gone on proactiv if it weren't for you but now i dunn need to. The results are great many thanks Dan.

Ok, so here is my wonderful acne story, I got a really ugly breakout when I was 21 years old (cystic acne) that hurt and clustered all over my face. Went to the dermatologist and was immediatly put on Solodyn. The Solodyn was amazing for me, it cleared my skin right up and I didn't get another breakout for 2 years! Well, here I am once again. About a month ago my face started to breakout pretty badly. I am a recent college graduate so I don't have insurance but I went to the dermatologist anyways. He put me on Minocycline 100 mg once a day and Clindamycin topical. I have been on that regiment for 3 weeks now with no results, so I came here and decided why not? I will try the regiment.
I have been on the regiment for almost a week now, but the fast results I have experienced are amazing! All of the pimples I had on my face seemed to purge themselves out of my skin. I haven't had a new breakout since going on this regiment! Granted my face is a little dry and irritated, but then again I am still only on week 1. I don't want to jinx myself, but wow, I hope the results just keep getting better! I feel so good about myself now. The red spots and lingering acne are still present, but can easily be covered with a little makeup. Thank you!
I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU. Your regimen changed my life. I suffered from acne since I was about 13 at times it got better but never went away. I tried many things to clear it up to no avail. They either made it worse or stopped working after a few months. Finally last November I started on your regimen. At first I felt like it was making my skin more irritated than it has ever been but under all that irritation what do you know it cleared up, now I only suffer from the occasional pimple and my skin continues to heal and improve. I have noticed that the texture and feel of it has changed, my pores are getting smaller and the scaring is almost unnoticeable. I don't know what I would have done with out your knowledge!
I have passed your site on to all my fellow sufferers and those who have tried and stuck with it are seeing results as well. So again I give my thanks you have changed my life!!

I have tried almost every single product on the market for acne care.
Disappointment after disappointment, I felt hopeless. My friend suggested that I try your "treatment" because that is the only thing that worked for her. Thinking that this was like every other product someone has tried to lure me in to buying, I thought: "What do I have to lose?”
I ordered the whole regimen and started using it religiously. I even went online and read the articles regarding "habit reversal" because I had a tendency to pick my face. Between the advice in these articles and the magic in these products, my face was actually starting to see results! I feel so confident now when talking to people. I no longer have to worry about what other people are looking at on my face. It is such a great feeling and I thank Acne.org for that.
Thank you so much!

First of all, thank you for your website. I'm 17 and going to be a senior in high school this year. I have had moderate acne since 9th grade. I read your clear skin article and in the past week, my skin is nearly completely clear. Thanks to you and benzoyl peroxide 5%. The main things I did wrong before was over washing my face, using wrong products, and shaving to much. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks.
