So ive been on the regimen for about 2-3 months.

I was using Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser followed by Benzac AC 2.5% and then Neutrogena Healthy Face lotion. ( the one with aha in it).

So i wake up have a shower, gently wash my face in the shower with my hands.

Then i get out of the shower and use a towel to pat my face dry.

Then wait for my face to dry after 5-10 minutes and apply the benzac 2.5% with one finger being as gentle as i can and spreading it over my face until its absorbed.

Then i wait for that to dry and apply my Neutrogena healthy face lotion gently.

And i wash my hands between every application and use a clean towel.

So my acne has not been clearing up, and i believe the culprit was Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleansing blocking my pores. So i switched to Johnsons Baby top to toe bath and my acne seemed less. But every morning i will wake up with 3-5 fresh pimples.

So im stumped. I dont know if i should change my moisturizer or change my BP to dans bp or both?

Please can you give my some advice.

PS i havent eated dairy for like 6 months and im eating as few carbs as i can.

Are you doing the regimen twice daily. From your writing it appeared you were doing it once. Are you using a full fat finger length? Using too little bp may be a factor.

Yes im doing it twice daily.

I completed the regimen questionaire and i was doing everything right.

I believe i am using alot of bp but since im not so sure i have ordered the large bottle from dan. Although this is very costly because i live in NZ and have to pay for it myself :|
