  2. Progress Updated

    I feel like these products have been working good for my acne, and scars. I've been using African black soap to wash morning and night. I use cetaphil moisturizer morning and night. And at night I tone with the pixi glycol acid toner, and I use the ordinary rosehip seed oil.

  3. Results from AHA+ Glycolic Acid Lotion Updated

    This is the result of me using the AHA+ glycolic acid lotion from here. It broke me out so bad even in places I never get acne. As you can see in the first picture I have a few dark spots around my mouth that I wanted to get rid of. The second picture is 4 weeks into using AHA+

  4. Acne and Tiny bumps Updated

    I have just recently started getting acne mostly on my forehead. All I use is is a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. I use a sheet or claymask about 2 times a week. Something that bothers me is the tiny bumps near my nose and cheek. Does anyone know how to get rid of it?

  5. Walmart Regimen Week 2 Updated

    After only 2 weeks on an acne.org regimen Walmart alternative, almost all of my acne is completely gone. I am using the Clean and Clear sensitive oil free cleanser (the yellow one), the Neutrogena on-the-spot benzoyl peroxide, and the Neutrogena Moisture Oil Free Formula, Combination skin moisturizer. Don’t spend 50 dollars when you can get the same at Walmart for 20$ or less! It is working for me, just use the same cleaning techniques as informed by the acne.org regimen and I swear you will be good to go! Good luck.

  6. Acne.org Experience - Caution! Updated

    I used Acne.org AHA 10% for approximately 6 months and out of the blue I got a rash under both my eyes and the corner of my lip. I spent 3 months going to specialty dermatologist appointments (including getting a skin biopsy under my eye and multiple antibiotic rounds and prescription skin creams) to figure out the cause. The dermatologist determined I had some sort of contact or allergic dermatitis and I stopped using all my face products. Upon using this product after my face completely cleared - my rash returned. The dermatologist ultimately determined this product directly caused my perioral dermatitis and put me back on steroid creams to clear it back up again.

    I would strongly caution anyone from using this product. 

    Customer service also refused to refund my money, stating: "Unfortunately, even if you do return these orders to us, we can no longer issue a refund on your order since it has already been past our 60 day return policy. We do mention this on our site."

     
    Start of Acne.org Regimen January 17, 2017

    Start of Acne.org regimen (cleanser, BPO)  


     
    8 Week Progress - March 28, 2017

    8 week progress of Acne.org regimen (cleanser, BPO, AHA 10% added February 14th)  


     
    6 Month Progress - Start of Rash - July 25, 2017
      6 month progress picture. Acne doing slightly better but still getting breakouts on chin. Note rash beginning under bilateral eyes and corner of left lip. 
    January 17 to February 14: Cleanser, BPO 
    February 14 to July 25: Cleanser, BPO, AHA 10%


     
    6 Month Progress - Start of Rash - July 26, 2017

    6 month progress picture. I stayed home from work this day because my face was so swollen. Got prescribed an antibiotic because the MD thought I had cellulitis. 
    Please excuse that I look completely horrid in this photo. This was right after I woke up and I did not recognize the person I saw in the mirror. 
    January 17 to February 14: Cleanser, BPO 
    February 14 to July 25: Cleanser, BPO, AHA 10%



     
    Waiting for my Dermatologist Appointment - July 31, 2017
      Few days before dermatologist appointment. All facial products stopped. 
    January 17 to February 14: Cleanser, BPO 
    February 14 to July 25: Cleanser, BPO, AHA 10%

     
    Post Dermatologist Appointment - August 2, 2017
      This is after my dermatologist appointment. MD did not know what my rash was, so he took a skin punch biopsy next to my left eye and sutured it closed. Prescribed Protopic topic steroid cream to apply before bedtime. Nothing else applied to my face - no other ointments, creams, or make up. 
    2 weeks later the pathologist determined my sample was either contact dermatitis or allergic dermatitis.
    January 17 to February 14: Cleanser, BPO 
    February 14 to July 25: Cleanser, BPO, AHA 10%


     
    Dermatitis Update - Progress after 4 days of Protopic - August 6, 2017
      Progress photo on dermatitis caused by AHA 10%. This is the 4th day after starting the prescription called Protopic - a topical steroid cream. Note that rash is almost gone. 
    Rash completely healed within 7 days and my skin was clear for the first time in months. 


      AHA 10% Test - Overnight Rash - November 26, 2017

    I tested the AHA 10% last night - this is what happened. The AHA 10% definitely caused this horrible rash overnight. I applied my Protopic prescription from August - hopefully it takes care of it soon. 

    I cannot warn anyone enough against using the AHA product - it is not worth it! This company also refuses to issue me a refund since I purchased the AHA more than 60 days ago.

  7. Improvement photos Updated

    These are photos of my skin in June and then now. It's a huge, huge, huge improvement for me. I don't have perfect skin, and I am very aware that it could get bad again, but god does it feel good to be able to wash my face without it hurting horribly. The before photo isn't of my skin at it's worst, but you get the point. I blurred out parts of my face because privacy or something.

  19. 2 weeks in Australia sent my skin crazy Updated

    Buying the acne.org regimen didn't seem to be an option in Indonesia (taxes, postage...actually turning up) I set to finding a local alternative. A cream called Benzolac, containing Benzoyl peroxide 5% and Clindamycin phosphate 1.2%. Couldn't be happier with the results!
