  1. I really like the cleanser. I've used Dove sensitive skin beauty bar for years. I like Dan's cleanser better. I feel it is a very gentle cleanser and cleans very thoroughly. I will definitely buy it again.
  2. If it's the one with menthol, menthol is very irritating.
  3. This is just not true. The skin never adapts to BP; it always continues working. If 2.5%BP works for you today, it will work for you 10 years from now. I have a book called Breaking Out and it says that BP in any percentage never stops working and your skin does not become immune to it like it can with other medications like antibiotics.
  4. This is interesting, because I was just posting under another thread that I just read a book called Breaking Out. In this book the author interviewed many dermatologist and the best acne regimen combines salicylic acid with benzoyl peroxide. It looks like you're doing just that! Glad it's working for you!
  5. Thanks for the feedback. I'm thinking of using both salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. But then I'll have to stop using my retinol creams because benzoyl peroxide neutralizes it. I got the book Breaking Out and the author interviewed many dermatologists. It is really the best book on acne I've come across. The consensus is that a combination of both benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid work best to clear acne. I have heard good things about Paula's Choice salicylic acid.
  6. I have found great success with Roc and Neutrogena Retinol products. You can buy them in any drugstore. I agree that you need the exfoliation of hydroxy acids and the cell turnover function that retinoids provide. I feel they both compliment each other.
  7. I have been a big fan of AHAs but I've been reading many dermatologists truly recommend salicylic acid for acne, because it exfoliates within the pore, which AHAs do not. I was a big fan of Alpha Hydrox for years. Does anyone recommend salicylic acid over alpha hydroxies, and why? Thanks.
  8. P.S. Check out the reviews of the products on that website. I'm not the only one who loves these products! They were one of the first alpha hydroxy lines out there in the late 1980's. I can't believe I almost forgot about them until I read your post. Goes to show you how effective marketing is. I got sucked up into every other new product out there for years and left behind the best. Thanks again!
  9. Thank you very much for posting this. I used Alpha Hydrox years ago when the products first came out. They are truly excellent, affordable hyroxy acids. I guess I stopped using them when a million other companies came out with hydroxy acids, and of course I had to try them all. Truth be told, in my opinion Alpha Hydrox products are the best. They truly work. And they are so affordable compared to others. I am going to order some of them. Thanks again for the free shipping tip.
