  1. If you have been on his regimen since June 12 of 2007, are you breaking out from the moisturizer??? It seems you have been following it for a LONG time and using his products solely. If that is the case, you must have had good outcome with his products. I'm considering using his products as a kit (like you have been doing) and want to know what people think of the products. If this one ingredient is comedogenic as you are stating, are you actually getting clogged pores from it or are you jus
  2. Thank you. Good idea to try the samples. As for SA cleansers, I sometimes seem to get small bumps on my forehead that never go away and I always attibute that to SA cleansers. So, i'll have to try his cleanser also. Thanks for your reply. I'm glad you have had luck with his products. I may have to give them a try (I've tried EVERYTHING ELSE like most of us have!)
  3. I have followed Dan's system on and off for years (before he had is own product). The premise of a cleanser, a lot of BP and a moisturizer seemed simple enough yet EVERYBODY used so many various brands and combinations to achieve his suggested system. To this day, I have not found a cleanser I like. That is my biggest concern. I have come "this close" to ordering PROACTIV and saw SO MANY bad reports on here about it that decided not to and instead, try Dan's approach again. SO, I was consi
  4. Are you using Dan's actual products (the acne.org cleaner and treatment?) I was considering purchasing the kit myself. I have been a member on here for a few years (before he had a product line available) and the hardest thing for me to find and still is to this day is a CLEANSER that I like. So, i was wondering if his cleanser may be one I would like and would not seem to cause breakouts as I feel some cleansers I have tried in the past have done.
  5. Thanks for your info Sara. I would probably just do it 1x a day anyway and I'm going to just focus on my forehead first to see how it goes since that is my main problem area along with my temple areas. john
  6. Hey everybody, just wondering if any of you ever tried the acne products by either one of these companies. A female friend of mine has been using OBAGI skin system for normal to dry skin with the 3 step system and said she loves it and her acne problems are only about 10% now of what they used to be, so in essence, about no issues. I did a search for OBAGI to read more and came upon a website that lists a bunch of products. While going through it, I came upon the PCA products which have good
  7. I know you are not supposed to take any Vitamin A supplements while on Tane. But after reading so much about Tane being a derivative of Vitamin A, wouldn't it be safer to just take Vitamin A to try to get the same results??? Does anybody know if taking Vit A regularly would help reduce acne? Derm prescribed me Tane 2 months back but I never went through with it. Still debating wheter or not I want to go through with it and take the associated risks. Seems that there has to be something to t
  8. Hey MattyMatt, I have the same issue. I'm not on Tane and never was (thinking about it) but my face always seems to end up worse after using topicals for a few months. Everyone raves about Retin-A. It totally screwed up my skin. I stopped using all over my face months ago and my nose STILL peels constantly. It is crazy after I get out of the shower - - - just like you mentioned getting it wet as from getting out of pool or out of the ocean. I constantly feel I have to look in a mirror too
  9. Read some of the accutane logs by many of the members on here who were kind enough to keep them for us to follow. I read Jordan19's log from start to finish and found it very informative. I believe he brings up his blood test results a few times and the triglycerides were very elevated at one point.
  10. Hey Cubsin2100, According to the IPledge pamplet, vision problems ARE a side effect (and yet another reason why I'm totally freaked about taking Accutane now and still haven't begun). Here is what the pamphlet says word for word: Vision Problems - Isotretinoin may affect your ablility to see in the dark. This condition usually clears up after you stop taking isotretinoin, but it may be permanent. Other serious eye effects can occur. Stop taking isotretinoin and call your doctor right away
  11. Do you feel better NOT having the acne or WORSE from the hair loss? That sure is a tough one to answer. I don't know how I would feel about that either. Hair loss isn't really even brought up in the IPledge pamphlet or else I missed it when I read through it. I also shave my hair (buzzed all over) but there is a difference in that look and the bald look definitely. I sympathize with your hair loss. How long have you been off the tane? Do you think the hair will improve once you are off it
  12. Thanks ScoobyDoo and Jordan19 for your positive responses. I've heard this before that many regret WAITING to take it because of the positive results. Sometimes I see people, such as many I work with, who have constantly perfect skin - - - part of me just wants to ask them if they were ever on Accutane. You just don't know, that is what my derm said when I told him that I'm constantly looking at other people's faces when I talk to them and nobody else where I work has skin as bad as me (and
  13. I'm just interested in how it changed your appearance and emotional state because ironically that is what we WANT to have happen - - - a clear face to be the appearance change and happiness or higher self confidence being the emotional state change. I have read mostly positive replies from folks who took tane but DO believe it is a dangerous drug otherwise there wouldn't be such hype with all the Ipledge statutes and required monthly bloodtests. That is all very scary to me. As far as many
  14. Wow, clear for the next 6-7 years? I think I'd be estatic just being clear for 6 to 7 weeks. Heck, I couldn't even imagine!!! That is great! I guess I'll just have to remember not to trim the toenails too short while on the tane (if I decide to do it). Thanks for the info. GB2
