Korean Skincare is the best for the money! Try dandelion root extract - it was THE game changer for me for cystic acne. Vitamin C serum is also underrated for sebum control and preventing infection of breakouts.

Regimen - Acne.org Regimen user, clear since March '07

Acne.org Cleanser


Acne.org Jojoba Oil (Morning - Click here to see how I apply it)
Acne.org Benzoyl Peroxide (Morning)
Acne.org Moisturizer (Morning)


Paula's Choice BHA Gel (Night)

One can never be 100% sure acne has gone while on medications that are keeping us clear. The only way to find out is the hard way and that is to stop treatment.

***k that, I'll just do The Regimen till I die.

WoW! Congrats man, i hope that you stay blemish free! Just make sure when you get wasted that you still remember to put on your BP at night lol...


Don't waste money on cheap acne treatments that don't work. If it worked - it wouldn't be cheap.
