  1. Hey all! I don't spend a ton of time around here anymore, but recently did a lot of digging on this particular subject and thought I would start a thread with my findings where others could join in! Finding non-comedogenic hair products has always been a pain, partially because I don't think the companies really worry about it, but also because even when a product may be non-comedogenic, it's not a label they're going to put on a hair product--after all, it's for your hair, not your face, ri
  2. Thanks guys. I totally forgot about Paula's Choice! I've ordered samples of the BHA gel and lotion, so we'll see if I like one of them. Thanks for the suggestions. Thanks k3tchup for the alternative suggestion, too. I haven't loved Neutrogena's products in the past, but it's been awhile. As much as I love their fragrance, I also don't like having fragrance--I use fragrance-free everything, pretty much. I don't think it irritates my skin, I'd just rather not have a bunch of random smells fight
  3. Hey all. I talk a bit about the Regimen here, but since it isn't part of the Regimen, this really fits better in this forum--hopefully some buyers of Dan's products ou tthere can help me. Basically, I loved Dans Salicylic Acid+ product. I used BP in the morning and SA at night and not only did it keep me clear, but it kept me free of those gosh darn closed comeomes that always seem to pop up around my moutn (BP 2x a day does not help this). Unfortunately, my stash of SA is now almost gone (u
  4. *sigh* Mods, if this needs to be moved somewhere better, go for it. I'm posting it here because I can't decide where it really goes and this is where I used to post pretty much everything. Hey guys! I haven't been around the boards in a while, but I thought I'd share this with you. The technology/DIY/etc./etc. blog I write for had an interesting post a few days ago about how to make your own shaving cream, and I thought I'd share it with you guys because - lucky for us - it's completely non-com
  5. The SA+ has worked fairly well for me. Not super awesome, but pretty awesome. Good enough that I'm bummed Dan's not making more. Ah, such is life. Back to AHA for me (or maybe I'll just order 20 SAs and have a good supply for a while).
  6. There are no pictures of Dan with bad acne, as far as I know he just doesn't have any. Probably destroyed them, just like you or I would have. lol. Acne.org isn't some giant corporation though, it's really just Dan. And maybe a few of his peeps, as far as I know. BUT, they have one hell of a good thing going for them - their products are amazing. But that's the whole thing about The Regimen - you don't NEED Dan's products for it to work. You can easily use other over the counter products i
  7. I second what Brandy said. As a longtime swimmer, you will need to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize (your hair too - conditioner!). Jojoba oil will be your FRIEND.
  8. Before I answer, just to clarify: are we talking competetive swimming, like on a team? During the summer (which is almost over)?
  9. Okay, I know I sound like a short tempered broken record, but seriously. This needs to stop. Can we get a sticky about cancer or something? We have to deal with these posts like every week.
  10. I mean, it depends. I have a light brown/red beard, so it bleaches, but it's not that noticeable. So I can keep the beard and the Regimen. It is different for everyone.
  11. I have been using the Regimen for a few years, and at one point I did decide to grow a beard. However, the only areas where I got acne (and thus needed BP) were the areas around my mouth...where there was beard. First of all, you don't have to apply it over your entire face if you don't have acne there. I don't get acne on my forehead, for example, so there's no need for me to apply it there. If you get acne all over though, then yes you will need it everywhere. So the first question is, do yo
  12. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, if I hear this question one more time, I might just explode. Dan needs to put a page up on this NOW. I'm so sick of hearing this. EDIT: oh wait...look at that, he already has.
  13. You mean do I have the products with me? No, I do it before I go out. Although I do keep a travel-size bottle of Dan's moisturizer in my coat (not just for parties, but every day) just in case I get dry. But not the whole Regimen.
  14. Yeah...if it's close enough to the eveningtime (say, 5pm), I'd go for it. There's nothing wrong with being a few hours off. Once you get into showering in afternoon territory, though, I usually just slap on some moisturizer (because water will dry out your face a bit) (also don't actually slap, that would cause irritation!) and hold off until night.
  15. Um, I thought I posted here (I certainly remember writing a post here) but I guess not. So here's my suggestion. Do the Regimen before you go out. Novel, I know. I generally try to do this (though I often forget, and then I am left to either attempt it drunk or, more likely because I'll be tired and lazy, just skip it). Here's the thing about it - if you do the Regimen around 10 or 11 or whenever it is you go out, you'll still be in that 8-12 hour range between applications if you do it when yo
