  1. I ran out of Aquagel about two years ago, been using the Acne.org BP ever since. This website's formula is the best I've ever used, skip all the imitations and just buy the Acne.org stuff, you won't regret it. Of course, you also need to consider other things like your diet, vitamin intake, etc. But when it comes to BP, Dan's is the best in my experience (6 years).
  2. After two and a half months of Vitamin D3 (from Holland & Barrett) I can say that this has worked for me. I now have very few problems on my face (was already doing fairly well with the above quoted regimen) but the D3 has helped my back considerably. I don't do Dan's regimen on my back and the Vitamin C + Zinc wasn't helping it, the D3 has given me 95% clearance on my back so it must be doing something right!
  3. During the winter time my skin gets more oily and redder than usual. Probably due to irritation from the cold and (perhaps) lack of sunlight. Right on cue with winter, after a relativity problem free eight months (my personal best since age 13), I had an unexpected breakout in November and have been seeing the usual winter harshness in my skin since. I remembered this thread and thought I'd give Vitamin D3 a go. I went with the aforementioned Holland & Barrett variety (http://www.holland
  4. Yep, Dan's BP certainly works out the cheapest. Just used it for the first time, it sure is aqueous!
  5. Well, I purchased Rugby Acne Medication Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5% (http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000NVR9GY) and that worked really well, much nicer than Panoxyl ever was!. Unfortunately the price has now gone up so it's not an economically viable purchase. I've just received my first 8oz tube of Dan's BP, took about 10 days to arrive from the US with no customs charges Having been a user of the regimen with UK products for many years I'm looking forward to trying Dan's formula!
  6. Panoxyl's Benzoyl Peroxide gel has been absent from the UK's shelves for about six months now. Has anyone managed to find a good alternative? An Amazon UK search for 'Benzoyl Peroxide Gel' yields the following results: http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=benzoyl+peroxide+gel&sprefix=benzoyl+pe%2Caps%2C240 Up pops Benzac, Rugby, Enzoxid, and Zapzyt brands of BP gel. Rugby's product has a number of positive reviews from satisfied cus
  7. I've managed to find some 5% Panoxyl in a pharmacy near to where I live, so I've been trying it out. Unfortunately this has coincided with a breakout (after enjoying two solid months of clear skin!) so it's difficult to tell at the moment how my skin will respond to the 5% in the long run, I'll have to wait and see. *Should probably stress here that the breakout did not happen as a result of switching to 5%, it happened in the interim period when I'd ran out of 2.5 and hadn't found any 5.
  8. When I use the 2.5% aquagel I put moisturiser on afterwards, about ten minutes later. I've never mixed the two together. Hope that helps.
  9. Oh dear, just been to my pharmacy to buy some more 2.5% Panoxyl and heard the bad news that it's been discontinued. Like most who have commented on this threat it's the one thing that actually keeps my skin clear! How have people found the Brevoxyl 4%? Do you need a prescription to buy it?
  10. I've never had any trouble getting Panoxyl Aquagel 2.5 (Benzoyl Peroxide) from Boots, Superdrug, or even my Uni's pharmacy. The price is around £4 however you can also get it on prescription.
  11. I use Neutrogena Visibly Clear Oil-Free Moisturiser which is really great because it stops my skin from drying out but isn't greasy (presumably because it's oil-free). Also, because it's in the Visibly Clear range it's designed for people with skin problems. Unfortunately it can be a tad expensive but I think it's worth it. On the moisturiser front, I have been using Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1 Face Wash & Mask for about 18 months now. It's also a very good product because it can be u
  12. Congrats! Did your skin go a bit flaky? I've been doing the reg for almost 2 weeks and have been experiencing a bit of flakiness due to the BP. Anyone else?
  13. Hi everyone, I've been looking at this website for a few months now, reading different pieces of advice and reviews on various products. I've been taking oxytetracycline tablets since October 2007 and they do work well but I still get some spots and a "breakout" at least once a month. Due to this my skin is still red and unable to heal, however my acne is more under control. Yesterday I came to this site to look up some advice and found myself reading over the regimen and watching the little Y
  14. Hi there, 18/M: A cyst developed on my cheek last Wednesday. I've been reading some of the advice given by people on this forum and have been applying ice to it (I'm also taking Oxytetracycline prescribed by my doctor). Are there any other things people could recommend to get rid of it? I'd prefer not to go to the dermatologist. It's now Saturday and is just as bad, how long does it normally take to go away? Thanks for any help
  15. Hi guys Firstly I'd like to say that I've found this website and forum a priceless resource for information on acne, especially the reviews section so thanks to the admin and mods for keeping this place up and running. Just a simple question really. I can feel a red spot developing under my skin (on my cheek) and want to know are there any quick ways to stop it from developing into a nastier one overnight? A few weeks back I had the same thing (on the other cheek) and the next day it had got a
