  1. What about those of us who only buy the BP? We're gonna see a 15% increase in prices, yet still have to pay $8 for shipping? My order is never over $40.
  2. Ughh sounds like something to look forward too...haha
  3. Even though I've never had any issues with scarring?
  4. Been on the Regimen for like 4-5 years now, and while I get the occasional pimple here and there I've been about 99% clear for the most part. Fast forward to June of this year. I went to Vegas with a couple of my buddies, and upon returning I started to get pimples here and there. I thought it was because I switched my shaving cream (turned out to not be the case), then I thought it was a preworkout supplement I was taking (again, not the case). The funny thing is that I'm not getting pim
  5. I literally was just about to post a topic like this. I've used BP for almost 3 years now, and my face has been remarkably clear. I live in New York, and this summer has been the hottest that I can ever remember. Right around June (when the heat started) my face started to break out. I only use water to clean my face, as cleansers really dry out my skin and cause more acne. I'm really thinking that I have no choice but to start using a cleanser in the summer, since this is just getting ridicul
  6. Well I left it alone like everyone suggested and just did the Regimen as usual. It's a little less red today, and it looks like the skin is starting to flake/peel over the pimple. That's a good sign, right?
  7. I'm a successful user of the Regimen, and have been doing really well for the last 3 years. I'm posting because I have this stubborn pimple. I left it alone for the first week (it never came to a head) and then I made the mistake of trying to pop it last night. Keep in mind, it doesn't hurt at all. After a failed attempt at popping it, I put a warm compress on it for a little while, trying to bring it to a head. Then I did the regimen like usual, and applied some of Proactiv's Refining M
  8. I've been using Dan's BP & moisturizer for almost 3 years now, and it works great for me. I bought white sheets, and a bunch of white towels so that I wouldn't be constantly ruining my sheets and towels. Ever since the formula switched and it's yellow now, it's ruining all of my sheets and towels. It leaves them with a yellow tint that won't even come out when I bleach them. This happen to anyone else? What color sheets/towels do you use so this doesn't happen?
  9. First off, I'd just like to say that the Regimen has worked wonders for me. I started doing it in November of 2008 and I'm basically completely clear (still a few spots but nothing extreme) to this day. Here's my current issue though, I'm getting a little tired of doing the Regimen and I think that there is a chance that my acne might have cleared up. When I started the Regimen in November 2008, I also had a lot of back acne. I didn't treat that and just let it be. Currently, my back is a
  10. 3 words. Aloe Vera Gel. It works wonders.
  11. I noticed the same thing that everyone else has recommended. I had the same issues as you around week 5-6 and as soon as I upped the BP it cleared up quickly. I don't use the full amount of BP now, but I did initially to get myself clear. I use 1 pump day/night now and I haven't had a pimple in a long long time.
  12. Bro to be honest, I do not follow the waiting times at all. As soon as I get out of the shower I put on BP, and then right before I walk out the door I put on moisturizer (maybe 10-15 later). On the weekends I don't even wait that long. Oh and I haven't had a pimple in months.
  13. I've been using the Regimen on and off since November. I took a break in February and then started using it again the end of March due to some breaking out. Overall I'm completely satisfied as I haven't popped a pimple on my face in who knows how long. Literally I do not get any pimples that need to be popped, at all. The only problem that I have with my face is some clogged pores on my nose, chin, and by my temples. Obviously the Regimen doesn't advertise helping get rid of clogged pores s
  14. So I got diagnosed with folliculitis on my forearms, and I've been given antibiotics for it. After about 8 days of treatment, I'm not getting any more infected areas. However, there are a couple spots that will just not go away (they were there before taking the antibiotics). I don't just mean red spots, I mean like a few bigger bumps. Any ideas on how to reduce the size or get rid of them?
  15. I went to the doctor and he diagnosed it as folliculitis (sp?). I'm on antibiotics and it should clear it up her said.
  16. I've been getting some red bumps on my upper forearms (like right below the elbow). I've never really had acne there, but this winter I started wearing a lot of long sleeve shirts and pushing up the sleeves. I'm guessing that it caused some irritation and started giving me some forearm acne. However, what I don't understand is that it's now July and I haven't worn long sleeve shirts in months. So do you think it's acne for sure, or could it be something like ingrown hairs (note it's only on
  17. I've been using AHA nightly for the past 4-5 weeks now. It got worse at first, then better, then worse again. I don't use AHA on my entire face, and the only place I'm getting pimples is where the AHA is. Coincidence? I think not. Your opinions?
  18. Unfortunately I don't find that BP does a good job at getting rid of clogged pores at all. Have you tried Dan's AHA? I started using on my forehead only and within a month or so there were absolutely no clogged pores on my forehead. Now I'm using it on the rest of my face and it's clearing nicely (comedone wise).
  19. How long will you be overseas? I know that Dan has travel bottles that you can use and refill if needed.
  20. Now I'm not expert at this by any means. But from what I've read the percent of BP that is used in these tests are much much higher than the concentrations that are in Dan's BP. Also, the mice and other animals that they test on are bred to be extremely cancer prone.
  21. Not too mention how greasy it is compared to other moisturizers, and old batches (if you have one) have a tendency to ball up during the day.
  22. In my experience the Regimen can be done only at night and still have decent results. The two things that I noticed about it though: 1. It takes longer to get clear when doing only once a day 2. It is more effective if you are clear by using it twice daily, and then switching to once daily. I'm not really sure about the cucumber slices, but I know that I was on the Regimen for a three month period and then switched down to once a day with no change at all in results. The biggest thing that
  23. Well since your question has gone unanswered for two days now, and just about all of mine go unanswered too I figured I would do my best to help you out. From my experience, when I use AHA it works much better when I am also using it with BP. Most (or some at least) get an initial breakout when using AHA (cause it's cleaning out your pores) and I feel that the BP helps reduce that. The best thing to do is use it after BP, I usually only do it at night and I wait about 15 to 30 mins (from what
