  1. Hi all I just wanted to pass a small tip onto anyone who wants to give it a go. I have had back acne for approximately 18 months. Nothing worked so I started on the regime in July 2010. My back got better at times but then would just get worse.....for 3 months it was a continual cycle of having it slightly improve only to break out every few weeks. But I stuck with the BP going through 2 large bottles a month at least. While persisting with the BP regime I started trying head n shoulders,
  2. Hi All I have read lots of posts on here talking about people getting red/dry skin after using BP. My question however is if my skin is NOT red/flaky/dry, etc. does that mean that the BP is NOT drying my skin out? Can you be drying out your skin without realising it or is it something that is definitely apparent?? I know it must sound like a dumb a** obvious question.........but can your skin be dry without having the visible side effects? The reason I ask is because I have been using 2.5
  3. I would not use the 10%. It will only irritate your skin. Trust me, I've tried it! If I were you I would just wait and continue on the 2.5% when you get the chance
  4. Thank you for your post mrsmayers! It is very encouraging to hear. I am suffering with hormonal acne on my back and I have been feeling VERY discouraged this past week. Had the tears and wanting to throw it all in! I was saying to my hubby that it wouldn't be so upsetting if I wasn't putting in so much hard work and following this damn routine like crazy! Your post gives me back a little hope Thanks again
  5. Yeah I noticed that with my 16oz BP too and Dan said it was fine to use
  6. Hi everyone I have been suffering with back ance for approx 1 year. It started 6 months after I stopped taking the pill and I think this change in my skin is hormonal. If it is hormones that are causing my back ance and not bacteria, etc. will the regime not work for me? I have been doing the BP/AHA religiously for 8 weeks and some days I think my back is improving and clearing somewhat but then I will have a bad breakout and it's back to the start. ?So frustrating! The break outs are not be

  8. Hi all My back seemed to be clearing up really well in the first couple of weeks on the regime. I wasn't getting any new spots. But now 4.5 weeks into it I have had two breakouts of new spots. I am feeling so disheartened. I am so careful with following the regime twice a day. I do not pick or squeeze. The spots I get on my back are like lumps under the skin and they red and quite sore (papules??). They are never pussy pimples. Should I keep persisting with the regime? I don't know w
  9. Hi all I have bacne and just wondering what others are going with their own regime? Are you using the BP/AHA combo twice a day? Does anyone find that using the AHA twice a day actually leads to breakouts? Any stories/thoughts would be great! Thank you Carly
  10. Hello I just started using dan's BP after switching from a chemist brand. I have noticed that dan's has a very slight grainy feeling to it, like as thought there are some tiny exfoilants in it. I wasn't expecting this and the old brand was perfectly smooth Does anyone else find this? Just hoping that is the case! Thanks Carly
  11. Hello everyone I have been having bouts of acne on my back for a little over 12 months now. I started on the BP/AHA regime a few weeks ago (combined with head and shoulders) and my back cleared up really well within a week. I was so excited! I had no new pimples and the marks were starting to clear up. BUT on the weekend I was sun baking out in my backyard and decided to put suntan oil on my back (stupid!) and by the time that night came around I had 4 new big sore pimples on my back! Is it
