what i dont understand in this regimen is that C&C blackhead scrub is for removing dead skin how will it make your face clearer , i asked the guy at shoppers drugmart , he told me to just use C&C continues acne cleanser , and the other one is for just removing dead skin or somehting like that. is this true?

yes, my face is still 100% clear on this regimen. it works wonders for me.

white_hype, if i notice my face is sweaty or something, i usually just wash my face off with just plain water.. it seems to do the trick. if you wash for a 3rd time with a cleanser i'm guessing that would just cause your face to create more oil.

also silent_night, yes, the guy at the store was right, but go back and read the original post.. i explained very clearly why you need to use both of them. using one or the other alone isn't completely effective.

your regime sounds kinda similar to the acne cure one, but with that after washing with salyic acid you put on a glycolic product on for a few minutes to get into the pores, then theyre clear for the bp to work. glad to hear it helped

i agree but im talking major sweat... as in i workout hard for 1 hr and am very sweaty and dirty... i also grapple (like wrestling) and am very dirty/sweaty... i dont think plain water would do the trick

Hi, first off, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to post your regime. I decided to try using the C&C combination cleansers about 36hours ago. The first 12 hours i noticed a normal breakout and didn't think the cleansers were working. 24hours came rolling along and I noticed more breakouts than normal. 36hours (now) have gone by, I've noticed my face is MUCH more clear, almost all my whiteheads are completely gone. My face feels smooth and after cleansing with these 2 products I feel like I have "clear skin." I'll keep all of you posted on my results. Once again, thank you.

Does anyone know if these products are availible in Europe? I prefer to buy them online somewhere. Drugstore.com does not ship them to europe (because of what??).

Hi, i am taking Minocycline at the moment, its early days so not sure whats happening - been 10days. I was thinking of trying this regimen the SA&BP. Will it affect the mino and is it recommended to run this along side a medication?

LongonGuy,

There would be no problem combining minocycline with the BP/SA routine since topical medications usually coincide with taking oral antibiotics anyway. The only 'problem' may be that if you do notice significant improvement you won't know what helped the most.

Hey Botchla,

I think I'm gonna try this regimen, after 7 or so frustrating weeks of Acne Cure. I just want to verify: Are you recommending only using the BP wash at night now? Or is that just for ppl who are getting dry skin?

Thanks

Sorry, one more thing.

I live in Canada, and I just got back from the drugstore. I bought the 2 products, but the weird thing is that the continuous control cleanser only has 5%bp in it. I think it's just a different formulation in Canada. Do you think this will still be effective?

Thanks

yeah, meeraboots found that one out.. in canada they only have 5% which i think should do just fine..

also yeah, i just recommend only doing the BP at night, and the SA twice a day. good luck!

hah! quite possibly!

i think it must be sold-out day or something cause i went to target to get a few things and they were sold out of half of the stuff i needed. great!

i just want to add that i'm past the 12 week mark on my regimen and i'm still clear. i've only had 1 breakout on this and it was a week or two after i got absolutely fried lobster red out in the sun. i'm pretty positive it was the damage caused by the sun that caused it, and even then it wasn't even that bad, just a few marks (like 3-4). i'm wondering how everyone else is coming along those who have been on it for a little while?

I started a day or two after you posted it i think, still working pretty damn well. The effectiveness of the products started to decrease after a while i think because my skin started to get used to it, because I dont really get the tingly sensation anymore at least, so thats what leads me to believe that. But my acne is better than i can ever remember it being, and all i need to work on now is red marks, trying to see if i can get my skin tone one damn color over my whole face =P. But hey, cant even tell there is any discoloration or acne from more than 5 feet away, so i am stoked! I just purchased Mandelic Acid from skincareRX and it should be here in a couple days hopefully. i figure the combination of your regimen, tetracycline, and the acid will have my skin 100% beautiful in under a month if i keep improving like i have been. I finally have the confidence to ask out the chick ive been after for a while, and i think its mostly due to this regimen. Thanks again botchla, and good luck to anyone else trying this!

I just did the regimen for the first time tonight and my skin feels AMAZING! It really feels like those cleansers are doing something productive. I was just wondering, approximately how much of each cleanser do you use? I think I might have overdone it a bit, but I'm not sure.

Thanks a million!

I've been using Neutrogena Clean & Clear wash with salycylic acid in the shower in the mornings, along with a moisturizer (please see my Zinc Oxide post in this forum!) and 10% BP at night for three days now, and the results are already amazing me. Thanks, Dan, and everyone here, and good luck!

Alright, well I have some terrible news.

Remember how I said my acne had greatly improved after using the C&C combination cleansers for 36hours? Well, 11/9 and today i've experienced the worst breakout in my life, I can't even believe the face i'm looking at is mine. I'm desperately hoping the cleansers are 'bringing everything to the surface' and this goes away A.S.A.P. Maybe I was mis-informed? I thought we should be applying the SA&BP twice a day, but I just read SA twice and BP once. I'll start to do this.

I'm so depressed [-(

I had to quit using the continuos acne wash because it contains mineral oil. Apparently the oil breaks me out. It never really dried my face out and in fact it made my face even more oily! I'm now using Neutrogena Clear Pore. It contains 3.5% Benzoyl Peroxide. I'm starting to see some improvements.

White_Hype, I lift weights too and what I do is take a shower after the gym and wash with Cetaphil and then just apply a light moisturizer. That works well for me. Then I use the two C&C products again before bed.
