  1. This moisturizer looks good on paper, but it will destroy your complexion and can make you break out. Avoid.

    I used this moisturizer for over a year between February 2013 and March 2014. I never bought it through Amazon so I can't comment on the shipping. The reason I used it so long is because of how great it looks on paper. The ingredients and formulation are all top notch. However, jojoba oil, the main component of this moisturizer, can and will make you break out if your skin doesn't like it. Contrary to what Acne.org's Daniel Kern says, there's no such thing as a non-comedogenic oil that works for
  2. I'd really recommend starting the Regimen and using Dan's products. His cleanser is great, his 2.5% benzoyl peroxide is just right, and honestly I feel like his moisturizer actually fights acne rather than clogging pores! Check it out: http://www.danielkern.com/ You might also want to try taking a zinc supplement, because many studies have linked low levels of zinc with acne. Optizinc by Source Naturals is a good brand. Pretty cheap, too.
  3. So recently I haven't been sleeping very well, so I ordered some melatonin just to give it a try and see if it helps. However, when I looked at the bottle I noticed that each 2.5mg tablet of melatonin contains 335mcg of Vitamin B-6, which is apparently 18% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin b-6. I've heard a lot about Vitamin B-6 breaking people out, but do I really have to worry about such a small amount? If I decide to take this, is there a chance i'll break out?
  4. I might have to give that Cetaphil a shot then. I'm guessing the Cetaphil lotion you use is the "Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion?" Or is it one of their other moisturizers?
  5. So I've been on the Regimen since early March, and my skin is relatively clear these days so I'm pretty happy about that. However, I'm having some problems with dryness and flakiness. I've started using significantly less BP, but whenever I wash my face with Dan's cleanser my skin still gets super dry and flaky, so I've been using more and more of Dan's moisturizer and jojoba oil, which do a pretty good job of hiding the flakes once I put it on, but I'm beginning to think the flakes are more fro
  6. I've been using Dan's AHA+ to help with the wrinkles I get around my mouth from the drying nature of the BP. Anyone else doing the same? I heard it helps and have seen some improvement.
  7. I second that. Just give us a rough estimate of when we can place our orders. It's alright if it doesn't end up being correct.
  8. We should start a petition arguing for Dan to have amazon fulfill his orders for him through Amazon Prime so that shipping is free and more people can afford The Regimen and thus more people buy it.
  9. It sure seems like it's the best... The only alternatives people really mention are Cetaphil and Cerave, but it seems like they end up just clogging your pores.
  10. Still waiting for an answer on what makes Dan's moisturizer so good..
  11. Should I maybe try putting on Dan's moisturizer right after washing my face?
  12. Hm... This morning I didn't use any BP on my face, but I slathered on dan's moisturizer and jojoba oil. I even applied more in the afternoon, but after I washed my face tonight, it was dryer than before applying the moisturizer!
  13. I know this is an old thread, but I'm a little confused. In the tips about reducing dryness and flakiness Dan says: "substituting your usual nightly moisturizer with an AHA moisturizer a few nights a week can help" (relieve dryness). How? I thought Dan's AHA+ is used for exfoliating? And isn't it an acid? Wouldn't it only dry out skin even more rather than help moisturize? Should I mix Dan's AHA+ with his moisturized in order to reduce dryness? Also, does Dan's moisturizer address the dehydr

  15. How does the Olay Complete spf 15 compare with Dan's current moisturizer? Can I substitute the Olay Complete for Dan's moisturizer or should I be using both? Does the Olay moisturize as well as Dan's does?
