The Regimen Alternatives?

Recommended Posts

For the regimen you are supposed to use:

1) cleanser

2) benzoyl peroxide(2.5%)

3) moisturiser

Can i use the products below as an alternative regimen?

Step 1) La Roche Posay Effaclar Clarifying lotion http://www.boots.ie/en/La-Roche-Posay-Effaclar-Clarifying-Lotion-200ml_865646/

Step 2) La Roche Posay Effaclar AI Targeted Breakout Corrector http://www.boots.ie/en/La-Roche-Posay-Effaclar-A-I-Targeted-Breakout-Corrector-15ml_865644/ It has salicylic acid instead of benzoyl peroxide.

Step 3) Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser http://www.simple.co.uk/our-products/product/kind-to-skin-hydrating-light-moisturiser.html

Would the above products be suitable for an alternative regimen instead of benzoyl peroxide as step 2, as benzoyl peroxide isn't as widely available in Ireland.

p.s my acne isn't that bad , i just have little acne around my chin,lower cheeks and above my lip. i rarely get spots anywhere else on my face. i have red skin/marks around my chin,lower cheeks, above my lip area.

thanks for any help and suggestions!

I would say this really isn't an alternative to the regimen. What makes "The Regimen" the regimen is the treatment of Benzoyl peroxide and how the steps are done.

I have no idea whether the products you mentioned will work for you, but if you decide to go through with it, then the best of luck.

I'd say yes to the cleanser and moisturizer, but no to the spot treatment- it doesn't say it uses the 2.5% benzoyl peroxide.
