  1. Forget the BP, but did anybody ever try using AHA only as an acne treatment. If so, what was it like?
  2. Hey Lisbee, My opinion on Proactiv is mixed. It is 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, but is harsher and much more irritating than Dan's BP. Plus it has a fragrance, which is not good if you have overly sensitive skin. I personally would return it because Proactiv is way too expensive and probably will not work if the neutrogena spot treatment didn't work for you. On a side note, I was just like you and swore off any acne product including BP. I went all-natural and had horrible results. Instead I chan
  3. As the title asks, can I? Mainly because when I get out of the shower, my face is really dry and flaky and I hate adding Dan's BP on my skin when it is like that because when I rub the BP in, it creates a nasty ball of dead skin (sorry to gross anyone out).
  4. Depending on the severity of your cousin's acne. None of this will work if she/he has even mild to moderate acne. The cleanser is okay, but the scrub will add irritation and actually cause more acne. The moisturizer, I know from experience sucks because the treatment is a beta-hydroxy-acid, better known as salicylic acid that only exfoliates the skin. It actually doesn't treat the condition of acne. Benzoyl peroxide is amazing because it kills the acne causing bacteria that causes acne. If s
  5. I personally would cut out the ACV altogether. Not switch to using BP once a day and just ramp up the amount of moisturizer you put on your face. I personally once started using BP once a day and I ended up getting a couple pimples. I am assuming because those 12-14 hours of not having BP on your face to combat the bacteria is enough time for the bacteria to go unchecked and help form a couple pimples. However, this is my skin, and your skin may be entirely different!
  6. Hey, I'm Korean and I must admit that benzoyl peroxide clears me up in weeks rather than months with little irritation, BUT a lot of flaky skin. As to answer the question why the regimen works well with Asians? I have no idea. It works well for me because my skin is really oily and has been accustomed to benzoyl peroxide for years.
  7. Found this wash and thought it might be a good cleanser for men since it cleans hair, face, and body. I don't know about the ingredients...so if you guys notice anything comedogenic about it, please let me know! Here is the link to where you can buy it. (LOVE SEPHORA) http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtm...ldPaginate=true And here are the ingredients: Water, Lauryl Glucoside, Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflow
  8. Okay...so today I woke up and did the same thing. Washed my face and applied jojoba oil and didn't have any breakouts. Just got home and I looked in the mirror and my face is still relatively clear except on my cheeks I noticed a little bit of red which could be oncoming blemishes or nothing at all. We'll see by tomorrow
  9. Yeah, that's what was happening to me when I used BP. Even the 2.5%. My skin was ridiculously dry and even with jojoba oil and moisturizer... I still had flakes by the end of the day.
  10. Hello everybody! I'm a relatively new member to acne.org and I must first say that the regimen does work! I did everything as required; interchanging Dan's moisturizer with jojoba oil because it felt lighter on my skin. I did this for about two months and my skin cleared, but my skin still felt dry and irritated because of the bp. So about four days ago I decided to just wash my face with Dan's cleanser which I now interchanged with Dove soap (sensitive skin), left out the BP and just put on j
  11. Can jojoba oil kill the acne causing bacteria? I've read that it has antibacterial properties on websites such as livestrong, but I am hesitant to believe it. Does anybody have anymore information?
  12. After using the AHA a few times, I must recorrect myself and say that it does sting, but my skin has this beautiful glow to it that I haven't ever seen. I now use it every night, but I may switch to every couple of days if it continues to sting. Thanks Dan --- You Rock!!! P.S. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
  13. Hey, I recently purchased Dan's AHA and I just have a few questions; since the directions were a little bit vague in description. First, no offense, but Dan's moisturizer is not working for me so I switched to AHA and want to know if it's okay to use every morning and night? Secondly, the AHA doesn't sting when I apply it. Is that weird or is my skin really resilient? Thanks!
