I know that you are probably inundated with emails but I have to write you again. I have had mild acne for the last 5 years and I found it to be one of the most frustrating things to deal with. There were times my skin would look great and then there were times when my skin would look anything but clear. I have tried everything under the sun, except for accutane, and nothing made much of a dent. All of this changed one night when I was surfing the web and stumbled on your magical regimen. I have been on the regimen for a only one month and my skin is consistently clear. In fact, I have only gotten one little pimple in the past 2 weeks. I am completely shocked, dumbfounded, and speechless. Dan, you are the real deal and as trivial as acne may be to some people, this regimen has completely changed my life. Thank you so very much for being a good person. This world would be a better place if there were more people like you.

Hi Dan. I just would like to say a thousand thanks to you, and your site. I was wondering around the Internet about 3 weeks ago, and I found your site. My name is Christine, I'm 22 years of age, and I've been suffering with acne since the age of 11. My worst years with acne were from age 14-19. I've been using proactiv since I was 19, and I must admit, it's helped me clear up about 50-60 percentage of my acne, but never cleared me up completely. Anyway, I've never felt so frustrated with this issue until now, because I'm engaged, and I will be getting married in 6 months. The day before yesterday, I remembered your site, and I went ahead and bought the Neutrogena On-The-Spot 2.5, and the cleanser as well. I tried it the night before yesterday, just like you advised, and the next morning my skin looked wonderful. Yesterday, I had like a one pimple wanting to develop, and I paste lots of the cream on it, and the rest of my face, and today, I woke up with not one single pimple. My face looks great, and I've never seen anything so fast and effective like your regimen. I am so thankful I found your site, and mad at my self for not trying your regimen 3 weeks ago when I first found out about it. Like almost everybody, I was a little skeptical about your regimen, for it sounds to good and easy to be true. I, like most of the people here, had spend hundreds or should I say thousands of dollars, in every acne medication you can imagine. I mean, people have always said I'm beautiful, but deep inside I didn't feel that way, because of all of the breakouts I had. I was beginning to feel like this was never going to end. Imagine all my teenage life with acne, and still at 22 I always had breakouts at least once a week! I'm so glad you are not a selfish person, and you decided to share your wonderful and magical regimen with the whole world. If I would have know, just a couple of years ago, not only what I had save about $2,000 dollars, but I would have been a much happier person. But like everyone else says, it is never to late. I'm so happy that I feel like telling the whole world about this regimen. So, now, I'm sure that for my weddding I will have wonderful skin, thanks to you! Thank you once again Dan, and God bless you.
Throughout my teenage years I had clear skin for the most part, the occasional pimple but that was it. When I was about 23 I started breaking out along my chin, on one side was a patch of whiteheads and on the other side I would have red pimples...I had no idea what to do, so I didn't do anything but pretend it wasn't there. I was embarrassed about it and hated people being close to my face. I would buy a different acne fighting product every month crossing my fingers hoping it would work...but nothing. One day I came across an infomercial for an acne product, I went to the website to get reviews...didn't find much, then I went to epinions.com and got the reviews I was looking for. One person had referenced acne.org. So, that is when I came across this website. I gave it a try. I use Clean and Clear cream cleanser and Neutrogena on the Spot Treatment, since my acne is only on my chin, I just use enough product that covers the tip of my index finger...any more is too much. During the treatment my chin turned red and was dry and flaky and occasionally would sting but that was all worth it because now, I have clear, beautiful skin. It regimen works exactly how Dan says it will. The feeling of having clear skin is amazing and at times is almost indescribable. The Acne.org regimen has saved my life and self esteem, so much so, that I feel "Thank You" can not fully describe how appreciative I am. But THANK YOU!
I wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for the information on this site. It has totally transformed my skin and life!!! I came across the website as I was desperate to improve my skin for my wedding which took place last week. I started the regimen back in January. I was first in two minds about whether to take the Dianette pill or try the routine. I opted for the routine and it worked! I had the most amazing wedding last week and no spots!!!!!!! I cleared my back, chest, shoulders and neck! I only had mild acne but I have had this since I was about 11, I am now 33. The best thing is a couple of weeks before the wedding I decided to stop the BP cream and have found that my spots are not returning. I think the key for me has been the moisturisation. It's so funny as if someone told me to use moisturiser on my body before I came across your site, my reaction would have been 'no way, that would make my skin more greasy!'. But now I think I have been getting spots mostly because of dry skin. Anyway, I actually went swimming the other day with my little boy and did not feel self-conscience and I am now looking forward to wearing a bikini on the beach this year. Last year I sat on the beach with a t-shirt over my bikini.
Thanks so much for this website!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best wishes to everyone.
Dan, I am a person of color who uses the regimen and i WISH i had a before picture for you to use to see how well it has worked for me, but, alas, I don't. I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am for you and your regimen. It feels wonderful to be able to walk around in the world again -- without a ton of makeup on -- and hold your head up.
thanks ... for everything!
Dearest, wonderful Dan,
I've never written to anyone before about their product - good or bad. But I had to do it this time.
I have a 16 year old son, whose acne in the last 3 years was getting so bad; it was affecting every aspect of his life, and really getting him down. We tried prescription creams and antibiotics, but they didn't work. We were finally going to try Accutane as the last resort, when I came upon your website. What luck! And thank god I decided to give it a try!
I don't want to write too much, because I want to make sure everyone reads this and that it helps other kids out there whose lives are miserable because of acne.
Well, the main reason I decided to try your program was because I could see that it wasn't a money making scheme since your were not pushing any particular product. Anyway, I looked for the BP and I found a 5% one and bought it. This was a mistake. It made my son's face super red and dry and flaky, and after a few weeks of this, we stopped completely for a couple of weeks. Then I started him again on a 2.5% BP. Well, it didn't take too long to show results, and this time without any of the harsh effects of the 5%! It was fantastic. It was only when I was sure that the treatment worked that I decide to buy the product from you, since it comes in larger quantities. And now (after 2.5 months on the program) he’s also started on your AHA for his chest acne and for the red marks left behind from the old acne. And this seems to be working very well too.
I wish I had taken good close-up pictures of his face before he started, so everyone could see the difference.
I just had to thank you, Dan. I hope you realize how much good you're doing. I know it sounds melodramatic, but I think a lot of people reading this understand what I mean. You are truly wonderful for doing this.
Thank you again,
I want to thank you for devoting your time to your wonderful website. I am 23 and have suffered with mild acne since my pre-teen years.
Like many other acne sufferers, I tried many treatments, both over the counter and prescriptions. Nothing helped. While my skin wasn't 'terrible', I was very unhappy with my mild acne. I work in a doctor's office and patients were always telling me, 'You look like you are 15 years old.' I know this was partly due to my acne because it definately made me look like a teenager. When I came across your website, I definately thought your regimen was worth a shot.
Within just two days, I noticed a huge difference in my skin. By the end of week one, my skin was completley clear. I have used this for several months now and have been acne free.
Like I said, I work in a doctor's office. I am very close with the physicians I work for and I told them about your website and how it helped my skin clear more than any other medication. Working in family practice, we see patients of all ages. Before referring to patients to a dermatologist for acne, our doctors try to treat them first.
Thanks to your website, for patients with mild acne, the doctors I work for now suggest your regimen to our patients. They also give out your website and tell the patients it has plenty of helpful information.
Words cannot express my gratitude for your website. It has literally changed my life!

Hi. I am a 24 YO male and ever since I was 15 or so I have had either mild or moderate acne. I always had at least 2-3 pimples. There were always people that had a much more severe case than I, but the amount of pimples that I had still bothered me. Over the years I have used Retin-A, erythromiasen (<-spelling??) and salicylic acid. It worked, but not that well. My face was never completely clear.
About a month ago I found your site and decided to try your regimen. I got the soap, the moisturizer and 5% bp. I got the 5% because I could find no 2.5%. Within 2 weeks my face was all the way clear. A couple weeks later it was time to get some more bp and this time I found some 2.5% so I got that and within a day I got some breakouts. So I looked for some more 5% and found none. I had to choose between 2.5% and 10% so I got the 10% since the 2.5% did not work for me. Within a day I was clear again. I have been using the 10% for a few days now and this stuff does not seem harsh at all. I have been applying the 10% bp 2-3 times daily and washing before each application and I don't even need to moisturize to keep clear, healthy looking skin. During the first couple weeks with the 5% stuff I needed to moisturize...but now that I have adjusted to the bp I need none.
I decided to try your regiment with the cetaphil cleanser, neutrogena on the spot, and a hypoallergenic facial moisturizer about 2 months ago. I had my doubts that this would make my cystic acne go away, but I am amazed to tell you that after month 1, my cystic acne COMPLETELY vanished and my face is beautifully clear. So much so that I haven't wore makeup all this week!
In the past I have tried everything, including the popular Proactive which worked for a while, but it seemed my skin developed an immunity to it and I broke out again worse than before, which left me searching for a new solution.
I hadn't always had cystic acne, but since I have been put on medication for migraines my skin went crazy and nothing would stop it. I was embarrassed to talk to anyone, but your regiment has saved my skin! thank you so much. love this website!
Your regiment does work!
Hi Dan, I e-mailed you about 2 months ago saying that I was about 50% clear from being on the Regimen for 1 month. I am pretty much clear now =) And I feel wonderful thanks to you. I am also currently experiencing huge amounts of stress from school, which leads me to believe that stress doesn't affect my acne... I just took a look at the new site, it looks great! Glad that you've maintained a simple design; it makes it friendly and unintimidating. You are wonderful, thank you again!
