For all the people that have found success, or not, with this regimen, how many of you have cystic acne(infected acne that generally becomes big with a white puss)? That's what I have and I'm skeptical about whether this regimen should help or not. I just wanted to get a feel of the different types of skin conditions all you people that have found success with, or not, with this regimen. Thanks and please post because it will really help everyone out!

Hey I'm on his regimen right now. And 2 cysts broke out like 4 days ago, one on my nose and one on my lower left cheek. The SA and BP didn't really help..but last night I put some tooth paste on both cysts and they've dramatically reduced in size and the white puss head is gone.

And for those who are wondering...the tooth paste is this Chinese herbal kind that my mom's friend gave me. She told me it'd help with my tooth aches.

I know you said your face doesn't get dry, but if I want to try this, I have a feeling my skin will definitely dry up because of the salicylic acid/benzoyl peroxide combination. Do you know of any moisturizers that works well in tandem with your Clean and Clear regimen?

yeah i just started trying this and straight away my skin went horribly dry after doing this - it's probably all the dead stuff, but is this a good or bad thing?

Hey anyone switch from Dans to Botchlas and notice resualts??

I wana switch because BP gel is expensive with s/h and takes long time. seems so much easier just to wash with 2 cleansers and done

Im affraid ill start breaking out from the irratation and start from 0 again..

im at about 96.53% clear skin with Dans Regimen

Thankz

I would probably switch to the two washes but buy yourself an on the spot tube from Walmart or wherever just in case and only use it on spots when you first notice them. But I started this regime about 4 days ago and Im seeing amazing results. I had broken out really badly, I think it was the summer heat but then I came across this board and tried using the C&C products..

The first day I noticed how clean my skin felt and some of the oil was gone during the day...the next two days was slow progress but today most of my active pimples are completely gone and the marks are very light pink and will be gone within a week or two. So be consistent with the two cleaners and maybe use just alittle on the spot treatment and slowly go down to using none!

has anyone noticed small white heads popping up whilst being on the regimen for 1-2 weeks? I bet its just pimples that would have become more infalmed if it wasnt for botchlas reg. but was just wondering. Ive gotten 3 on my jawline recently but they went away quite fast.

On a lighter note, i havent had an inflamed pimple since starting this regimen. (knocks wood  ) Just have these miniscule white heads appearing.

Hi all im new to tese forums and i really would like to try this regiem, the problem is im from the UK and i THINK i can get the blackhead scrub here but i cannot get hold of the contiuous control acne cleanser anywhere, it is not in stores here in the UK and i was looking online and it said that the product cannot be delivered to the UK so does any1 know of any way in which i could get hold of that product here in the UK?

cpuk, the good news is that you can buy panoxyl 10% benzoyl peroxide facewash in the UK. It is the only one i know that you can buy here. I presume it would do roughly the same job as the c&c acne cleanser with BP.

the bad news is that it is only available in pharmacies and costs just over £7 per 150ml bottle!! Scandalous.

How bad is your acne? If it is mild, (lets say, you have 7 or 8 active pimples at a time) then i would recommend quinoderm 5 BP cream. You can use the blackhead clearing scrub and then use this bp cream after. I also use 100% pure tea tree oil - I dap a little onto my fingertip and then directly onto upcoming or already formed spots. Please if you want any help just say. I've only been using this regimen for 2-3 days but can tell you that it is not drying for me, even with the TTO and the BP and it is quickly ridding my active acne.

heres a little tip..if you ever get a pimple here or there while on botchlas...try pottuing a small dap of the CC bp wash on there..it absorbs and helps reduce the amount of 'white stuff' in the pimple.

IM using panoxyl 5% BP only only as a spot treatment..WOW this stuff is great but very drying so I use a great moisturizer! Other then that I use both the C&C shrub and cleanser and im almost clear in like 5 days!

same here! I started last saturday. But ive also been on the C&C CC bp wash for like a month beforehand..that helped a lot.

Currently on day 6 i have 2 active pimples ,1 is a meduim whitehead on my forhead.....and the other is next to my ear and isnt fully formed...but its my first inflamed pimple since starting botchlas. I hope i dont get any more (knock).

But my face hasnt looked as good in months.

Well with my acne i wouldnt say it is really bad but i would do anything to clear it up altogether, on my forehead it is just sort of small bumps, not really red or anything, then i have quite a few spots around my chin area which is the worst part and then recently on the top of my cheek bones in line with my ear there is like a small cluster about the size of the top of my thumb whcih are realy annoying and really blatant

also is this "panoxyl 10% benzoyl peroxide facewash" what i would ask for in a pharmacy then?

Having acne has lowered my self esteem even and confidence i have missed a lot of college because i didnt like the way i looked and i had the lowest attendance in the whole place with about 30% attendance last year, luckily i passed all my exams, got "c" in 2 lessons and an "e" in another which i wil retake anyway but if i dont sort my self out this year my plans for the future and going to university could be over all becasue of acne

JUst ask for any cleansers that have like 5%-10% BP in them, You might have a brand there that we dont over here!!! With acne some products will work for others while some wont! The c&c products are great for me and I find if I spot treatment with the bp gel instead of all over my face I get better results and not alot of drying! Once I get rid of these two active ones. I am just gonna use the scrub and cleanser, because so far I dont have any new ones in like 6 days! I think the small bumps or whiteheads people are experiencing are just small ones coming to the surface, I am sure in a few weeks where you have them, they will disappear. I had some on my forehead but they quickly disappeared in a day or two!

Just be consistent with these products or any product that uses SA and BP and more then likely you will clear. You should also drink lots of water and take a multi vitamin.

i always drink a lot of water, and i take so many vitamins around 600% of the rda each day, i will go and get the blackhead scrub and something with 10% bp in tomorow, i was hoping to find a 10% bp using the c&c brand but it dont look like i will be able to so i have to settle for something else in conjunction with the 2% SA from the blackhead scrub. Hopefully it will work as i only have mild acne and have only been using general daily wash things from c&c with no SA or BP as far as i know, so hopefuly these new things will work better.

Iv been placing most of my hope in vitamins and things like carrots with high amounts of beta carotene in them which is supossedy good for skin.

I dont think it has made much of a difference tho unfortunately

=(((((( Im angry!! =XX It was working awsome!! It was summer, I didnt pick my face, i was 2 weeks into it and my skin felt smoother and I and actually LOOKED clearer!!!!!!!! (at that point i didnt need a mosturizer) My only problem was like 2 minor scars or so.. .. I started school and then =XXXX it started to feel slower (i dont know? lol) and I decided went to sleep with the BP facewash (even though I know i wasnt supposed to) When I woke up I couldn't see the gel in my face.. but i could feel the soreness.. ACK in the mirror my nose was kind of peeling from the sides (felt like a sunburn), its like I woke up with "scabbed" dots over my entire face!! after that i didnt feel results anymore.. (ok so my skin was dried up by this other thing i was using but perhaps it helped me? in a way now im stopping) Ok now I guess im ok.. i ahevnt really been using the bp in the morning (although i do at night) and im also.. NOT EXPERIENCING THE FEELING I USED TO GET WITH THE BP OR SCRUB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! im not even sure if my skin feels as cold as it used to!! .. Now my skin is flaky, I use mousturizer.. but i want to go back arg i cant help but like pick my face everdya now!! maybe thats also why things have gotten worse

This regimen does work. I like it because I have very mild acne and I think the "less is more" part pertains to people with mild acne. Thumbs up, Botchla...
