  1. If the SA is working well for Dan and ends up having similar effects on the majority of the people, doesn't this mean a dramatic DKR change? Though having multiple acne fighting products is good, won't the staple of the DKR shift from BP to SA?
  2. It's quite an enjoyable experience paying out the ass for shipping, and then not receiving it in a timely manner, huh? This is pretty ridiculous.
  3. I believe creams clog pores, unlike lotions, which can cause breakouts.
  4. I recently purchased the CSR cleanser. I have only been using it for a few days, which I would imagine isn't enough to judge its capabilities at cleaning. However, one thing I immediately noticed is that when I clean with it, afterwards, my face seems much drier than it was right after I used Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser. After cleaning with Cetaphil and rinsing, my face didn't feel any drier than before I cleaned. With the CSR cleanser, however, my face feels very dry afterwards. Any ideas why?
  5. Every morning and night I take a towel and rub it all over my face for about 10 seconds and then rinse with water, and usually repeat. It gets quite a bit of dead skin. I'm actually pretty rough with it, though it doesn't seem to bother my skin, though I imagine a lot of people would have problems with it.
  6. Some information I'd appreciate is opinions about it's shinyness, especially compared to other moisturizers (in my case, Cetaphil). So, if anyone has any comparisons, that'd be nice. This is also more of a general question, but it sort of fits here, is whether one can use a lotion with a slight amount of AHA (such as Lac-Hydrin) and a product such as Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion (which as 10% glycolic acid), which I use nightly. It sounds like this moisturizer does a good job of moisturizing, b
  7. Another victim of the phenomenon. Never got them until I started the regimen, now I occasionally get them (and in fact, just recently got one on my forehead) that's still there, though luckily hidden by my hair. I've been on the regimen since April and my face is very clear.
  8. I recently started drinking a lot of water. I went from about a bottle (20 oz) of water a day to a gallon now. I haven't been doing it for long enough to see any results, but I imagine it's worth it whether it helps my acne or not. It really isn't that difficult. I just carry around a 1 liter bottle with me all day and re-fill it when I'm done. Also makes drinking unhealthy things such as soda less attractive since I'm generally not very thirsty.
  9. I think you may have messed up your link. It goes to the Alpha Hydrox Souffle page, which I assume is not what you want.
  10. Really? Are you saying applying the Alpha Hydrox to the entire face is bad or what? I'd appreciate more information.
  11. I recently added the Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Lotion (with 10% glycolic acid) to my regimen. I use it only at night. Dan suggests to use it to "spot treat", but I prefer to try applying it to my entire face to hopefully reduce scars. My question, therefore, is at which point should I apply it? Right now, my night regimen looks like: 1. Cleanse with Cetaphil Cleanser 2. Apply BP 3. Apply Alpha Hydrox 4. Moisturize When spot treating, Dan advises to apply the AHA before BP, but I don't know if
  12. Seems like a lot of products. If possible, it's always good to keep it simple and to stick with a cleanser, an acne-treating product, and then a moisturizer, but if your current regimen is working for you then there's absolutely no reason to change it. EDIT: I see the Vanishing Creme is your BP product. I hear mixing salicylic acid with benzoyl peroxide is usually not a good thing, though it does work for some people. Just make sure you watch your acne carefully for a few weeks. Major acne less
  13. I don't trust a website that's all just one big image. But seriously, I don't trust hype products like that. Especially those advertised on television.
  14. The CSR is preventative, it's not a cure. In other words, it should help your acne for the duration you're on the regimen. While you can stop at any time, unfortunately your skin problems may come back until you have grown out of acne.
  15. I have a fairly large red bump. Dime-sized is probably a good comparison (though it's probably actually a bit smaller). It has a tiny white head. I can squeeze it, and a tiny bit of liquid (about a drop) will come out. The longer I wait between squeezing attempts, the more will come out, but then it stops. Of course, I probably shouldn't be squeezing it at all, but anyway. There is very little to zero pain on touch. I've had them before, rarely. On the ones I've had previously, eventually the h
