  1. I'm not currently using Dan's regimen (although I do have the Acne.org treatment)...I've tried his regimen off and on for years and it's just never done much for me so I had to give up on it. In the last couple months I started a new routine (suggested by the woman who does my facials) and it was incredible - my skin has never been clearer. The only problem is it's incredibly expensive (the cleanser is near $30, the acne treatment is $35-40, moisturizer was about $45-50...) and the products c
  2. Thanks everyone! I was just worried because everyone says to stick religiously to the 3 steps in the regimen and be careful to introduce new products, but those 3 steps alone never totally cleared me. I do still feel like I have to use the makeup remover because the cleanser is super gentle and I don't think it removes everything - better to be on the safe side!
  3. After reading literally dozens of websites and reviews, especially on Makeupalley/Acne.Org/Paula's Choice, I have a sort of skincare routine I've been sticking to: Morning: cleanse w/Clinique extra mild liquid soap Moisturize with FAB ultra repair lotion *I don't use BP during the day because it just has never sat well under my makeup! Night: Remove makeup with Clinique take the day off cleanse w/Clinique extra mild Apply a few drops of Acne.org AHA lotion Apply BP moist
  4. I am completely at a loss when it comes to skincare regimens. I don't know what you need -- cleanser, toner, moisturizer, treatment? What about exfoliators? Oil? Masks? Scrubs, anti-aging stuff, etc? I'm 23 years old and have moderate acne I suppose...my skin never seems to react well to toners. It's very, very dry and sensitive. I used Dan's BP for a while and it never cleared me completely, but it did the best job of anything else I've tried. Yet now I'm reading things saying BP is dan
  5. I've had the exact same facial regimen for months now - washing with Philosophy Purity face wash & my clarisonic brush, applying Dan's BP, and then Olay Moisturizer after. I haven't added any toners, masks, scrubs, etc. This regimen has been working great for me and my skin was really clearing up. Then randomly the other day I broke out majorly. Not big pimples - they're like dozens of tiny white pustules. Super small, all over the place, especially around my mouth. I have no idea where t
  6. Hmm.. Well, I don't use toners at all. Tried a few a couple years ago and they just reacted badly with my skin so no more. As far as cleansers, I've used the standards: Cetaphil, pretty much every SA cleanser by Neutrogena, Biore, Clean & Clear...used an Olay cream cleanser, Basis Cleanser, Aveeno cleansers (Positively Radiant & Complexion Clearing ones)...I'm kind of blanking on the specific products, but for the past couple months I've just been using Cetaphil cleanser for Normal
  7. I would say I have a moderate case of acne, and in addition, I also have VERY, VERY dry skin beyond what I would think is normal. My skin always feels tight. Running my hands over it, it feels very rough and dry. My face is constantly flaking, especially around the nose. My makeup NEVER goes on evenly or smoothly because my foundation cracks and flakes due to the dryness. I use the mildest cleansers I can find and I have tried almost every moisturizer made by Cetaphil, Neutrogena, Ponds, Clari
  8. What is it that makes Dan's BP better than others in the store? Wouldn't all 2.5% BP lotions pretty much be the same? And cleansers too...if there are two products, both salicylic acid cleansers with the same concentration, is it safe to assume they'll work in the same way on your skin? Just ask because I used Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash and it broke my skin out like crazy. It took almost 2 weeks to get my skin back to normal. however, I've been hearing good things about "Biore Ice Cleanser"
  9. Right so these are the issues I have with my skin: -It is very dry -It is acne prone, get new breakouts few times a week -Skin is very dull looking -Lots of uneven tone due to old acne marks -Clogged pores/blackheads on the nose area I've been using Dan's regimen on and off for a few years now. At my most rigorous, I did it straight for 7-8 months. It worked okay, it cleared my skin up a lot, but not completely. And it did nothing for the marks, I still got breakouts, and it definitely aggrava
  10. Hm, that sounds like a good idea. Originally I was using the microderm twice a week (sundays & wednesdays) but I don't want to overload too much. The every fourth day thing sounds good to me. Thank you.
  11. Thanks guys but I've been a regimen follower for over a year now so I decided to mix it up a bit. My skin is 99% clear and the mask/microderm has been working wonderfully for clogged pores and red marks, I'm just wondering how often to use them. I can't just use the Gentle cleanser, BP, moisturizer anymore - it's been a year and it's cleared me, but I have marks left over.
  12. I need some help creating a weekly regimen for myself These are the products I have: Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser Dan's BP Olay moisturizer Biore Self Heating Mask Olay Microderm Kit I use the Ice Cleanser daily, as well as BP & moisturizer, but I'm wondering how often I should use the self heating mask and the Microderm kit? Maybe the mask once a week, and the Microderm once a week on another day? I love all the products and I don't want to get rid of any The microderm is goo
  13. I've tried a few SA cleansers in the past (Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash, some Clean & Clear thing, and one more I'm forgetting) and all three made me break out a day or two later and have horrible, oily, broken out skin for like weeks until I could fix it with other stuff. For some reason I decided to buy the Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser, which is also a 2.0% SA wash. It's been about a week and I haven't had any reaction to it or breakouts, and my skin actually looks a bit clearer.
  14. Just something I'm wondering. I was using a Salicylic Acid acne wash for a few days and it made my skin go crazy. It got very oily somehow and broke out in a million places. It took about 2-3 weeks before my face went back to normal (which is still acne, haha). I was then prescribed Differin by a Dermatologist, who told me that Differin would initially "purge" my skin, bring all the impurities to the surface at first, etc. Sure enough, applied Differin and 2 days later - bam! big breakout. So
