  1. UPDATE: HOLY GRAIL STATUS!!!! AHA++!!!!!

    Updated Review: I love, love, love, love, love, love, love this stuff!!! Seriously a holy grail for my oily, acne prone and aging skin!! The gentle exfoliating action has done wonders for my forehead and smile lines while giving my skin a gentle boost of moisture; an absolute MUST for my aging 37 year old skin. I use it at night after cleansing with my Clarisonic Mia in the shower, then apply in an upward motion. I do not use BP 2.5% with the AHA because I found it too irritating on my skin. Ins
  2. Sounds like the other products may be causing irritation, which will exacerbate acne. Try going with the recommended regimen products only and see how it goes. Good luck!
  3. Do you have any pics that you can show us, so that we can determine what type of marks these are? More than likely it's PIH, but you can never be too sure.
  4. The regimen sort of creates a "tanning" effect. The moisturizer does not cause a yellow/orange hue per say, rather, it's your skin adjusting the BP. The odd skin tone should fade over time.
  5. Seems like your BP is migrating to your eye area. It does happen. Try not to get BP or moisturizer near the eye area (lid and under eye area) and that should correct the problem. Look at Dan's tutorials for reference. Good luck!
  6. Try eliminating AHA all together for a bit and see how your skin reacts. At times AHA can make your skin very irritated, especially during the early stages of the regimen. Stick to the first 3 steps religiously and see how your skin reacts. Personally, I still experience redness and I've been doing the regimen for over 3 years.
  7. What is your current regimen? Usually when you step down your BP dosage, you can experience huge breakouts. Also, I know for myself, hormone fluctuations (huge cystic breakouts) or too much alcohol can severely affect how my skin looks (dryness/redness). Try documenting everything you've done since you've been experiencing the breakouts and usually you can find out what the culprit is. It's good to reevaluate your daily activities to see if there is a possible link between it and your breakouts.
  8. Hello... I'm a long time regimen user, 3 years and counting, and I have had the same type of reaction. What type of products are you using? It may be a reaction to one of the products you're using or part of the purging process. Please be sure to check out the regimen approved products and try not to deviate from the exact regimen steps. With time and consistency, you eventually will have clear skin. Let us know how it's going.
  9. Hi there.... It's not uncommon to have your breakouts return if you don't continuously use the regimen. Unfortunately, some people, like myself, never cease having acne and when the regimen gets us clear, we tend to slack and stop using it. I, like yourself, learned the hard way that the regimen is the only thing that keeps us clear and we'll probably need to continue using it for many years to come. Anyway, have you taken the clear skin assessment? Perhaps you are neglecting a step in the regim
  10. Try not to skip days and find replacements with the regimen products as soon as possible. Even one week off the regimen can put you back at the beginning and you'll need to start the process all over again.
  11. Unfortunately, I've never found a mattifying product that worked well as a moisturizer. The only thing that helped to balance my skin and not produce a lot of oil was quitting drinking alcohol and drinking tons of water... I just keep tissues with me for the occasional blotting and go about my business...
  12. Bare Minerals girl here! It's the only makeup that doesn't break me out whether or not I'm on the regimen... I'd do some research on mineral makeup brands and ask for samples to see what works best for your skin.. There are many great natural and organic makeup lines as well that are also viable options. Just try to stay clear of brands that lists ingredients that are a no no for clear skin... Good luck!!
  13. The regimen should work fine with the type of acne you have. Continue to use it regularly, as instructed, and you should be well on your way to clear skin... Good luck!
  14. BP is a stable composite without being refrigerated, so there is no need to place it in the fridge..
