  1. No it's a completely different type of acne product, it's not benzoyl peroxide but a combination of salicyclic acid and gylcolic acid. If you google Peter Thomas Roth acne clearing gel you'll get numerous uk online sellers, however it costs circa £30 for 57ml so you might decide just to import dans stuff. http://www.peterthomasroth.com/p-78-ahabha-acne-clearing-gel.aspx
  2. Thank you for doing this list, it is absolutely incredible and so useful!! Perhaps one of the mods would be kind enough to get it pinned somewhere ?
  3. Welcome! Good luck with the treatment:)
  4. I used to love the clean and clear truly gentle cleanser, but since that's been discontinued I use the simple refreshing facial wash gel, cheap and available in boots.
  5. My understanding is that these ratings are based on experiments on the inside of rabbits ears, which apparently closely approximates human skin. However, there is a lot of individual variation and the use of the phrase 'non-comeogenic ' is completely unregulated. Your right though, avoiding these ingredients usually means avoiding 99% of the products out there, it can be very difficult to find good stuff
  6. I usually try to do just one pass, less irritation that way
  7. FWIW, I was on Dan's BP regime for a few years when I switched from benzoyl peroxide to the AHA/BHA combination product in my signature. For me it was just as effective as BP without the dryness, and absorbs much quicker. I appreciate this is not benzoyl peroxide and might take a leap of faith to switch, but it might be worth considering if your having trouble sourcing BP here. OTOH, it's quite expensive so might be cheaper to import dan's... Anyway, I know how frustrating it is for a goo
  8. Glad it worked for you. I used the cleanser for a while and found it a bit overdrying for my regime, so like you say it might not be ideal if your on the regimen, but as a stand alone treatment it's sounds like a good choice. Like most brands eucerin I find tends to be a mixed bag for acne suffers. I love there replenishing face cream, but there aquaporin range broke me out.
  9. There are only a few products available in the uk which I would recommend for the regime: Simple refreshing facial wash Neutrogena visibly clear oil free moisturiser Eucerin replenishing face cream with 5% urea My favourite cleanser, clean and clear truly gentle cleanser has been discontinued. Purpose gentle cleanser I understand has the exact same formulation, but its a US brand and only available online, and I prefer stuff I can pick up in boots. The eucerin is a heavier moisturi
  10. Yes BP can inflame your skin in the early stages, which may contribute to acne increase. Keep going for several months and make sure your applying it exactly as dan suggests.
  11. I have indeed been through your posts and it’s not the first time you've been spamming. Back in May you started three identical posts in separate forums spamming the ‘Own’ brand, which ended up been locked by the moderators. Now it seems Dr Neal is your latest client. I mean, if your going to put up fake reviews you could at least try and make them look convincing, as it is your post is such blatant marketing hype its almost funny. One tip; starting off your posts desperately trying to conv
  12. The phrase 'tho does protest too much' springs to mind... The so-called Dr Neal's marketing techinques are as transparent as they are pathetic.
  13. The AHA/BHA regime This is the regime I have been using with great success for the past year or so. It is essentially based on Dan’s regime except is substitutes an AHA/BHA serum for Benzoyl Peroxide. The combination of salicylic acid (BHA) and glycolic acid (AHA) is an extremely powerful combination. The AHA/BHA is just as effective as BP, easier and quicker to apply, and a lot less drying. It would be an ideal regime for those who are allergic to BP, find it too drying, or simply want a fa
  14. Peter Thomas Roth Acne Clearing Gel. This is without a doubt the best acne treatment product I have ever tried. No contest.
  15. I would avoid the eucerin aquaporin range - it definitley broke me out last summer, although its suposed to be Noncomedogenic, for me its definitely comedogenic. SPF moisturisers are notorious for causing outbreaks - I've yet to fine a good one. I was using eucerin hydro protect with spf 15 but I think its been discontinued. Until Dan launches his own, I think hats are the way forward.
