I used this product only in a vain attempt to perfect what I already had: good skin. I had 2 small PIH spots on my cheek that I wanted to fade away, and a scattering of spots on my chin (which never bothered me actually because it wasn't screaming directly in my face like forhead or cheek acne, you know). 3 weeks after using this product, my skin is the worst it's ever been in my entire life - for the 0.0000001 degree of (non-discernible) lightening it provided to each spot, it created 2 fresh new dark ones. I suffer from instant hyperpigmentation so when I get a pimple - it doesn't matter how big or small, it WILL leave a dark spot. When I spot a pimple on my face, I never even see the pimple itself (which only lasts for 2 - 4 days anyway), I see the dark spot I'm going to be left with for 2 - 4 MONTHS. Luckily, I had had pretty good skin before this horrific product and pimples were few and far in between which is the only reason my face was relatively clear. I thought it was suspicious that this thing essentially had 100% positive reviews which is simply shady especially on the internet. I am now convinced that it's simply marketing propoganda and best be assured that I will be posting my negative review on every forum, source and social media I can lay my hands on. Meladerm is the worst thing that ever hapened to my skin. And of course bogus '30 day guarantee' is bogus as if you try to contact them via phone, you get put on hold and then the line is cut on you. Of course.
This is a review of the acne.org regimen INCLUDING the AHA moisturizer.
I am 44 yrs old. I have struggled with non-inflammatory acne (blackheads & whiteheads) since I was 16. I also have anti aging concerns as well - i.e. fine lines, uneven skin tone and texture. I was exhausted trying to combat BOTH of my skincare issues effectively!
Enter acne.org. I had serious reservations using BPO on my 44 yr old skin as I "heard" it would kill healthy skin cells along with acne causing bacteria. Absolutely not true! Benzoyl peroxide in a 2.5% concentration will indeed kill acne bacteria, and will not damage skin cells at all. My skin has never, I mean never looked better in my life!!
My routine follows Dan's regimen 100% accurate to his instructions, except I use the AHA Moisturizer every single night after my BPO soaks in, not just 3 nights per week. I LOVE this moisturizer. It makes my skin soooo smooth and bump free! In the morning I use Timeless Vitamin C + E plus Ferulic acid serum after my BPO soaks in and under my moisturizer. My skin is flawless, and no longer super oily.
Thank you Dan for such amazing and affordable skin care for those of us with acne AND those of us with acne plus aging concerns. It's great for both :)
