Hi twoods,

Well, 5 weeks is still early on the regimen and breakouts are expected. Besides, results vary with each person which is why why it's recommended that you give it at least 3 months of concentrated effort.

If you haven't noticed the least improvement, maybe you should review the regimen steps and watch the videos again, to check that you're not missing something (including the recommended supplies).

Good luck and hang in there. Trust me, the regimen works.

Hey man, I was still breaking out after 5 weeks too and now it's been uhh 9 or 10 weeks and I've been clear for a week. I used to get over 10 zits in a week. I would've been clear earlier if I had figured a couple things out sooner. First of all, if you're still getting really dry skin, and/or flakes, even only occasionally, that will stop the regimen from working properly. Personally I didn't mind having flakes at first cause it hid my red marks and some zits and I would just say "oh its dry cause of winter." But the dryness makes your skin trip out and cause more acne. Then since I was still breaking out I kept loading more and more bp on, which made it impossible to avoid dryness no matter how much i moisturized. To get completely clear I had to use a little bit less bp and enough moisturizer to make sure I don't get any dryness throughout the day or night.

Depending on how your acne is, ie severe/moderate etc, BP will work differently. I had quite mild but persistant acne, well still have. But the reg got it under control. I'm 16 weeks in and still breaking out, but it's no where near as bad as before. The reg is definatly worth sticking too, no matter how mild/severe.

At 5 weeks my breakouts had decreased in frequency and severity, but they were still there. Now at 14 weeks in, I'm at the point where I hardly ever see any active acne and go weeks without it, but occasionally a very small pink bump or two will emerge (for some reason, I have a triangle of very small pimples on the left side of my mouth...whatev). If this is as bad as it gets on the regimen in the long term, then I'm happy as a clam.

I was on my 7th month and I was breaking out. I stopped for a week, and reviewed my regimen. I'm on week one so far and we'll see how it goes.

I'm about 7 weeks in and I had a small breakout about a week ago, and have 2 active spots right now. Just stick with it, I suppose. I'm giving the regimen 3-4 months before I consider anything else.
