I'd say the C&C Shine Control Moisturizer works well if you're on this regimen. After that, I'd say Eucerin Renewal.

I like the C&C shine free non-medicated moisturizer a lot. I have been on this regimen for 3 days now I think, and I've had great luck! My skin is so oily that I have always had to wash my face three times a day. But with this regimen, I only do it morning and night. So far I've had good results. No new breakouts, whiteheads are gone, and the two big cysts I have now are softening a lot. Also my skin feels soft, smooth, and moisturized but not greasy. Where was this stuff when I was a teen, and why did it take me 15 years to find it?? I could have saved myself a lot of trouble and emotional turmoil...sigh...

Has anyone found that it matters whether you do the scrub and then the cleanser, or the cleanser followed by the scrub? If so, which is better?I've always read that you cleanse, then exfoliate. Does it make a difference with this regimen?

I think it's better to use the scrub first, that way the cleanser can get into the pores better

My skin is definitely clearer and the color more even. You see, I have a very red face. I'm kinda known for it and I hate it because I think it looks dumb in all the pictures. So this is fabulously promising for me! Also, my face isn't super oily anymore. Is this what normal skin is like?? biggrin.gif

botchla i love you. my face looks flawless!! how did you discover this holy grail of the acne world?

oh wait. i'm botchla.

seriously though my face looks fantastic. (well at least my complexion does haha).. still working good after like nearly half a year.

btw, i had a little stint with the shea butter i used. gave me clogged pores (which didn't turn into acne, but were just like little hardly noticable bumps under the skin).. so i stopped using it and they faded.

strangely enough, it didn't cause any harm to the skin from my eyes down. guess i just can't use that stuff on my forehead (which was always a problem area for clogged pores for me).

anyways, i hope most of you are doing well on my regimen. i see some people have had breakouts and i'm sorry to hear that. but i see others have good success, so that's encouraging.

i don't hang around the boards as much anymore since i think i've passed my legacy on. i think i will leave the "tech support" to you guys to help each other out with questions. i still check the forum from time to time though.

before i go i just want to really stress 2 points again:

1. do not pick or squeeze!!

2. be consistent with the regimen!!

someone once suggested this on these boards and i think it is completely true. some people say that drinking alcohol or doing drugs makes you break out. then they suggested that it was not the actual alcohol or drugs breaking you out, it's the fact that when you're trashed you usually skip your regimen for that night (and usually the morning too if you're hungover or sleeping in)..

not to encourage drinking and drugs, but i think that is a valid point. if you are inconsistent with the regimen, you're going to have inconsistent results!

good luck!

Hey jcp9- still there? lol How are you doing? I'm doing great. My skin hasn't looked so nice in ages. I'm excited when I think about the summer because once I get a tan I wont need any foundation or anything smile.gif (I only use a tiny bit anyways, but still i'd rather not.. i'm just used to making it look like I have perfect skin lol). I hardly have to try with my skin anymore. Who would have thought that these two products would work so well?

Amber123- I used to have the same problem. I think when I was going through the whole puberty thing my hormones were going too crazy and my skin was inflamed a lot of the time, but now it's just fine smile.gif How old are you? I'd probably blame it on that as long as you're not doing anything else to irritate it.

Hey SJ. Well, I'm still just doin the regimen on my forehead just because I don't know if I can do it on my whole face. I usually never get any zits there, but since I've been doing it (2 weeks) I've gotten these two little zits that have just sat there for about a week. I'm hoping this is because I was wearing a beanie like the whole time I was snowboarding and that irritated it or something. Glad to hear that you're doing so well with it, though biggrin.gif/ ! During the trip I came up with a solution for not having to do dan's regimen during the day, and I'm kinda on this new regimen. It worked great up until like today lol. I've been seriously stressed this week (academic decathlon :-({|= ) so I've gotten a few little whiteheads and one zit, no biggie. But last week... man... my skin looked sooo awesome it was wonderful. It still doesn't look that bad but like ever since I stopped using bp twice a day, like half my red marks faded in within like a week lol. Click the link in my signature if you wanna see what's up. Hope everyone's having success with Botchla's regimen!

Ok I'll break my silence here on this regimen.

I tried it and I had the sequence backwards,because I read wrongly.I used BP cleanser then the SA wash.And I used the BP cleanser twice a day and the SA once.COMPLETELY BACKWARDS.

Anyway,I had major irritation and dryness.Then I re-read the thread,and smacked myself.

That's when it all became better.I broke out a little bit on the right side of my face initially but it became better and better.My face is pretty damn clear now,and it also feels great.I apply California North Action Moisturizer which is a pretty light moisturizer.So far no new zits and red marks are also slowly fading(and this is big,because in my whole life,my red marks NEVER GO AWAY!)

So ppl,don't give up if you break out initially.I knew I did when I FIRST tried it months back.I put the stuff aside.But you know what? Persistence is KEY!So I tried it again and it's paying off.

I'm doing OK... check out my log, it basically says it all. Anyways, my forehead (where I'm doing the botchla regimen) is doing OK, so that's good.

I've been on this regimen for several months now. I'm still very clear, although not 100%, and sometimes my acne flares up, but it is rare.

if u got acne, go to freakin k-mart and buy those 2 products, its less than 10 bucks for both and it lasts a long time.

botchla, wherever u are, I LOVE U

Hi,

I have a question... I never have blackheads or cyst or redhead. I only get whiteheads (1 or 2)and I also have enlarged pores on my ckeeks. Once and a while a white head get infected and turns green I have no clue why.

Anybody knows if this regimen would work for me?

And by the way, anyone knows what it means if a skin only has whiteheads pimples?

thank you in advance. Good luck to all smile.gif
