  1. I bet they ordered that sign in the US. Or maybe they're just cheapo's The Aussie version has a special section for sarcasm. You can officialy be sarcastic now, without your spell-checker calling you out on it all the time. Oh and it also has a kangaroo section, if I'm not mistaken. eta: I spelled/spelt "officialy" wrong on purpose, otherwise I'd miss the red underlining too much.
  2. Right? And then I have the handicap of English not being my native language... Every single word is marked as a typo... Or maybe that's my spell-checker's way of saying to just shut up and don't type anything at all. Must be it... @CBIOT13: Spell checking is a browser setting, to my knowledge it has nothing to do with the board software. If you're using Chrome (I'm assuming it's similar for other browsers), right-clicking a misspelled word will bring you to the spell-checker options.
  3. Hi Fabian! I believe you, I know how us Dutchies communicate sometimes Please don't be sad, I'm sure you'll find that the current mods are seriously cool! But thanks again, the amount of support and kindness that I've received from members was just overwhelming. Our members are the bestest! I also think you've made some good points with regards to the scar forum, I'm pretty sure that Admin and the mods see it, too. imo there's just no need to be so negative, it won't help bring forums back a
  4. Wowowowow Fabian! I just got your PM, which triggered me to come back here. Thank you very much for your kind words, but please... The decision to leave was mine and mine alone, these people have nothing to do with it. In fact, having worked with them very closely for a long time, they have practically become family. And trust me, I didn't always agree with them either, on the contrary, we've had our fights. I'm sorry that you hated to see me go, but please don't take it out on them, ok? I see t
  5. You're welcome! And let us know how it goes!
  6. Stop using BP until your skin has returned to normal, that could take up to a week, depending on how dry/irritated your skin is right now. Keep using the cleanser and moisturizer in the meantime. Then add BP again and build up slowly. You'll be fine, no worries. Good luck!
  7. Do you use BP on your neck? Do you rub your eyes after applying BP or the moisturizer, without washing your hands first? How did the regimen work for you before you added AHA? Have a look at the FAQ's, there may be something that you've overlooked: http://www.acne.org/faq.html Don't get depressed, ok? Hang in there! Based on the information you've provided, I would keep using the BP and maybe apply AHA less often or not at all until you're clear. And wash your hands after applying any
  8. You're welcome! Good luck on your tane course!
  9. When editing your first post in that topic, click "Use Full Editor". You can change the topic title there.
  10. I'm pretty sure that most of it was absorbed by the time you woke up. But even if it wasn't, the tiny amounts aren't nearly enough to cause damage. Just make sure to wash your hands next time, if not for your cat, then for your own well-being
  11. Is it just me or doesn't it work anymore?
  12. Awesome! keep it up! And FlaggLives, good luck on your journey as well!
  13. Obviously, there's something wrong inside your body. It's your genes. You can't cure acne with topicals nor with diet, you'll have to maintain a regimen (whether topical, internal or a combination) until you "grow out" of it. There's no proof that diet causes acne, so please don't go overboard by cutting out food sources and potentially causing all sorts of other health issues. There's some evidence that dairy (milk, especially) can exacerbate acne, but other than that, there's no evidence. O
  14. Scarless = without scars. Insulting/harassing and accusing people without any proof whatsoever isn't going to heal scars either, so it's probably best to just say nothing then. I've removed even more posts (thanks to the member who brought it to our attention). Behave yourselves, people! It's really not that hard.
  15. And I'm closing it. Have some patience until the is reopened. It's not that there was much going on there anyway, apart from mocking and false accusations. I'm sure you can wait another day.
  16. Topic closed for now, until we've had enough time to go through all the rubbish. It'll take some time, in the meantime please take the insults and false accusations elsewhere, they're not appreciated here. eta: Topic reopened. We have removed several posts and edited just as many. The amount of profanity was just insane. If you need to use expletives in every other sentence to get your point across, then maybe you should just ask yourself if you really have such a strong case. Discussions
  17. I don't see why you couldn't use them, just not at the same time (and you won't be following "The Regimen"). Use BP in the morning and Retin-A at night. As for the moisturizer, do you want to use them both? You can of course alternate or combine them, but I don't know why you'd want to use two if one does the job.
  18. Do you see my "like" here, Lapis? eta: issue solved, "like" removed.
  19. Hi Lilly75, Someone else has started a similar topic about shipping costs here: I agree that paying more for shipping than for a complete Acne.org kit is a major turn-off for people outside of the US. The cheapest option is already pretty expensive, but if you want your package to be traceable, it's completely disproportional with UPS being the only option then. Let's hope that they'll find a way to reduce those costs, so the Acne.org products will be much more affordable to overseas cu
  20. Several posts removed/edited. If you can't play nice, then don't play. And please keep in mind that we'd like this to be a safe place for all ages. Vulgarities and explicit language will not be tolerated (please refer to the board rules to see what's allowed). Thanks! Thanks to the member who reported it and to the member who was criticizing my poor attempt to clean up this topic
  21. Just look at this claim: "Clear skin within 24 hours GUARANTEED". Anyone pretending to be able to clear skin within 24 hours is -excusez le mot- a lunatic. I wouldn't waste my money on this. If you want to take a holistic approach, have a look at the diet & holistic health forum here, just don't take everything people say there for granted, do your own research. The only ebook I would recommend (and I've read most of them) is "Clear for Life" by Seppo Puussa. He doesn't claim to know it all

    Haha, man...the numerous fountains of youth and cures you'll find on the internet... I bet I could start a hype about how eating letters from your tax office will significantly improve mental health. Too bad it's only temporary I'll post some studies and articles from my notebook here about oily skin and possible solutions (skipping vitamin B5, as i assume you've already looked into that, and it's only based on one study): Dietary effect of lactoferrin-enriched fermented milk on skin s
  23. I don't know about the number of packages leaving the Acne.org warehouse everyday, but if the volume is high enough, they could negotiate better shipping costs. I know that one of my clients saved about $40,000 a month, only by talking to a different courier (DHL instead of UPS). Companies like iHerb ship to Europe for as little as $4 (no insurance/tracking), and choosing DHL over UPS saves about 50% ($12 vs. $24, both offer track&trace). Quite a difference. Maybe something to look into.

    One of the people I'm coaching has tried it for acne, both topical (based on these small studies: http://link.springer.com/article/10.2165/11530630-000000000-00000 and http://jac.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/dkm099v1) and as a supplement. Didn't make much of a difference, not in his acne nor in the oiliness of his skin, except the toilet was pleased with his more regular visits Just the experience of one person, of course, maybe others have had more success.
