  1. Thanks for your response. I have been using La Roche for about a week and no break outs yet. I will continue to use La Roche daily and will apply Neutrogena if I'm out in the sun for a while. anymore thoughts or other products to try please let us know.
  2. Thanks for your replies. I will check out Paula Choice's products, I hear great things about them. Can anyone else recommend other brands similar to paula's like online or even better a great brand at the local drugstore. I will look into the greamcream, can I buy and check that out locally? CA?
  3. Thanks for your responses. I probably will buy the Neutrogena for when I go out to the beach or in the sun for a while. I'll definately try out the shiseido product once I roll in the dough. They're products are great just a bit expensive at the moment. I did buy the La Roche in the US at the local drugstore. I tried it out today for the first time and it goes on thick and greasy since its a cream and not a lotion but after a few minutes it felt almost normal. I hope the product doesn't
  4. Thank you for your reply. I looked up the Aveeno night cream and it does look good but not exactly what I'm looking for. I am looking for something similar to that product but with some vitamins like A, E, B5 or plant extrants and it would be perfect.
  5. I went to the store today to buy some Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunblock but after checking the package and tried some in the store I felt it wasn't good for daily use for acne. So I decided to go with La Roche Posay Daily Moisturizing Cream w/ spf 15 for daily use and I will use the neutrogena sunblock when I expect to be out in the sun for an extended period of time. I was wondering what you people thought on my decision. Does anyone else do this? How does the neutrogena sunblock feel for e
  6. Hi I could use your opinion on this situation, please help. For reference I am a 25 year old male looking for a lotion/cream I can wear at night to complete my regimen and do what night creams are supposed to do but looking for one that actually works. You can call it anti-aging, collagen renewal, cell renewal, and etc. but I'm looking for something that can help my skin look younger, tighter, brighter, and just plain better than with nothing as I'm getting older. I have tried Dan
  7. DKR worked for me but not 100%, for me it was 50/50. 50/50 meaning that my acne is better than before I started but not completely clear when I stopped. I am trying to figure what I should try next and will post up soon for help. I have been on the regimen for 4 months and went through 3 bottles of BP. With progress from the BP flattening out and not doing anything anymore I stopped the regimen and will try AHA's or something else if there is something. Not a complete success but I did lea
  8. itsmekeff can you please elaborate more in the "different treatments" you mentioned above. Is there any creams out there like retinods or something besides super expensive laser/cosmetic surgery. Thanks
  9. I'm in the same boat as you guys. I'm 24 and I have mild-moderate acne but NEVER seem to be clear. I've been on the regimen for about a month and a half going through one bottle of BP gel. How long does it usually take to get completely clear from dan's regimen? I'm going to give the regimen one more month and if nothing improves I'll try the BHA method or both. I will be interested in other peoples opinions.
  10. I thought lotion and moisturizers were the same? I'm trying to keep my regimen simple: wash, BP, and lotion/moisturize plus if needed a sunscreen. Please clarify I've been on the regimen but not much improvement so far hoping that AHA's will help.
  11. Hi, I was wondering the % of AHA in Neutrogena Healthy Face Lotion? I was wondering because Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Lotion also recommended by Dan has 10% and was wondering where Neutrogena compares to them. I'm trying to figure out if more is better or less is better like the BP. Thanks Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp...2n0YJ4qXxBMMiaw Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Lotion http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp...x9mEh7ehnxrsPHQ Thanks
  12. anyone else? everyone wears sunscreen help us out please.
  13. Anyone have experience with any of these sunblocks in my thread? http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Need-help...de-t156563.html Thanks
  14. Hi, like the topic states I am looking for a facial sunblock to wear during the day. I have oily skin and have been on the regimen for about a month now and would like to switch to Neutrogena Healthy Face Lotion Night. I will use the night lotion since its less greasy than the normal lotion. During the day though I will need sunblock to wear on top that isn't too greasy since I have oily skin, feels like nothing is on and won't make me break out. Please help me choose the best one from the
  15. Yeah shipping was fast, I used the cheapest (ground) as well but since I'm in the same state it came in two days. I've been using the gel ever since I got it and noticed a few pimples have showed up but I hear its normal. I will wait after a month to see the real results of this regimen. I hope Dan comes up with his moisturizer ASAP, I'm using some oil control lotion and its making me dry with use with the BP. I'm looking for something light and effective, the thicker lotions don't help
  16. Hello, I wanted to let people know that I ordered Dan's BP gel on sunday night and received it on tuesday. Fast shipping from Oakland, CA and I'm in San Diego, CA. I can't wait to get started on the regimen. Also I got the new formula that says Dan Kern's on the bottle not clear skin for those wondering. Thanks Dan
  17. Also can someone recommend a lightweight sunscreen to apply after the oil control lotion. Thanks
  18. Thank you for your replies but help me plz. I have normal to oily skin NOT dry skin. So is an oil control lotion and moisturizer different or are they basically the same?
  19. I currently use Neutrogena Oil Free moisturizer and I feel that it leaves my face greasy after a days use as well. It doesn't have any AHA or BHA thats the Healthy skin lotion this is just the normal one recommended by Dan. They cetaphil should be just the same as the Neutrogena one plus its thicker. I am thinking of trying an oil control lotion to help or one that is lighter. Its hard to find a good moisturizer with sunscreen in it and controls oil. The search continues on...
  20. Hello, I have a question about oil control lotions. I have moderate acne(cheeks, chin line, forehead) and nothing seems to work at the moment. I am follow the regimen recommendations but was interested in an oil control lotion but wanted to get some ideas from people who've used them before. Can I use the lotion as my moisturizer after I apply BP and be alrite? I'm trying to use the less products as possible approach and also the less bacteria/oil on my face in order to clear me of acne
  21. So using bp after a fresh shave has caused no problems for you? Thanks, I will use that method the next time I shave. To answer phish's question, I have acne on my cheekbone/neck area and when I shave over them it doesn't really hurt at all. I have mild acne though so its not really a problem for me. Therer are times though when I have white heads where I shave right over them and start bleeding cause the razor would cut right over them but no pain or nothing I just medicate after with BP.
  22. I have been on the regimen for more than a month using a gentle non name facial cleaner, neutrogena on the spot acne treatment and finally neutrogena oil-free moisturizer with spf 15 (fairly thick compared to others I have used, must be the spf protection) with fairly little improvement of my face. I understand it can take up to three months to clear up but not much has been fixed during the start of the regimen. For reference, prior to trying Dan's regimen I used "Unblemish" (cost $80) by Rod
  23. As the topic states, after I shave I tend to use an after shave then the BP and finally a moisturizer. Is this the best order I should be using BP after shaving and then use the after shave to act as a moisturizer/shave balm?
  24. Thanks for all the insights, anyone with more experience with these items please let people know here. LionQueen I will try to get pictures of my acne ASAP but I've been very busy these days and a friend has my camera. My acne is mild but there are areas where no matter what I do they will never completely disappear. I am looking for a cleaner/moisturizer to clear up all my acne and repair my skin to perfection over time showing no acne, no scars, no nothing just a clean face. Also, I don't
