  1. The problem with looking for success stories on a forum like this is that the vast majority of people that have been totally cleared by Retin-A (or any other product for that matter) won't visit the forum anymore! So yeh i guess there are quite a few... I'm sort of in the same position as you at the moment, things got completely and ridiculously awful after i started doing the dkr but retin-a made things far better (you can see pics in the thread i've made in this sub-forum somewhere)...i'm sti
  2. Maybe the key is un-complicating your regimen by simply using a gentle cleanser (such as the Simple cleanser which i use), Retin-a and a gentle moisturizer afterwards. I've been having success just using this with Retin-a so i guess it's worth a shot. Also you'll never really know whether it's any of the other products that's making things worth if you're using other things such as SA. Just a thought
  3. I haven't actually read the whole of this thread but i would just like to say: 1. I used retin-a and didn't have an IB and "ten weeks of hell" 2. It certainly did not make my acne 10 times worse (rather 10 times better) 3. Retin-A does work otherwise no-one would ever use it I think that while it's great that you're trying to sell this product and that you think it is so amazing I think you're being quite misleading. I admit that i haven't used this product myself but i've heard stori
  4. To be honest i think that's the retin-a. When i started using it about 8-9 weeks ago i got exactly the same thing - and i hadnt changed my cleanser or anything else. It has improved a lot but i've still got a few bumps. It isn't so much of an issue for me cause the rest of my acne is far worse, you don't notice it that much. I think that it'll probably go away quicker for you though.
  5. Here is a picture of my face a few days into the dkr. The time when i took it was a good few days in terms of my acne, but still - you can see a wild contrast in the two pics below... http://img166.imagevenue.com/img.php?image..._122_1128lo.jpg I decided to stop the regimen for many reasons - it made my acne worse, it left red marks on my face, it slowed up the healing of my skin, it stained sheets and towels HOWEVER careful i was, it dried up the backs of my hands and in between my fingers qu
  6. Thanks a lot for your replies Wynne. I'll start looking at other cleansers that i can use without any of these ingredients, maybe that will help. And i'll make a conscious effort to be extra extra gentle with my skin edit: just looked a the one you linked to and it looks like a good alternative.. edit 2: also just seen that its been recommended by a few other people on these forums so looks a good choice
  7. I'm pretty sure i am following the regimen exactly, apart from using a 5% BP...i am using 2 fingers of the bp cream (comes out similar to neutrogena on the spot so followed guidelines to this). My fingers are also very long compared to most peoples so i'm pretty certain i'm using enough. I think i might be being a little over-harsh on my skin at times when applying but i think in general i'm doing ok in this aspect... I would say about a week and a half ago i stopped using towels because i was
