  1. I just checked my credit card and noticed acne.org charged it for a shipment. I thought it was a fraudulent charge. Then I logged into my acne.org account and checked my shipment history and remembered I set it for autoship. I guess the end result is my fault. However, I would at least like to get an email notification that an order was shipped and my card charged, instead of just getting blindly charged without warning. What company does this? Oh yea, DK does this! I've had numerous autoship s
  2. I posted this very same question a while ago. You can read the responses in my thread, but the longest person that has been on it that replied said he's been using it since 2001. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/what-s-lo...24#entry2752824
  3. Dang...since 2003. Good to see you're still alive and well without side effects.
  4. It's most likely not me, but I'm approaching a year that I've been on the products come December. I am only dealing with hyperpigmentation more or less, and even that is slowly, but surely going away. So...are there people here that have used the regimen for years and years?
  5. Yea, I was afraid that was the only answer...carrying my own lotion. As a male, I put it on in the bathroom, 'cause that's just unmanly to put on lotion on your face in class during lecture. Haha. Using very liberal amounts of the moisturizer during the regimen does help, but only for maybe 4 - 5 hours before my skin starts getting dry.
  6. It gets worse before it gets better. I say stick with it for at least 3 months to see how the products work.
  7. Your supposed to cover your whole face with BP, problem area or not. Sounds like even with 1 pump you're overdoing it since you said you don't cover your cheeks with BP...that means you're using one pump (or more) for, what I'm gonna assume, is just your forehead, nose, chin, and above your mouth. That's like half your face since your cheeks do have a lot of surface area. It's like you're already using two pumps since you're not covering the whole face. Imagine if you actually went to two pumps.
  8. Hey, Mathew. Good luck, man. I too came from Proactiv. Lemme tell you, those products were way too hyped up for their own good. I wish you luck on the DK regimen. I've been on it for about 8 or 9 weeks now with much improved acne. Admittedly, I've always had mild acne, but even Proactiv never cleared it to my satisfactory standards. I recall that after using the DK regimen for only 2 weeks, my acne improved far more than Proactiv ever did. My advice is to be quick when you use the cleanser so y
  9. Heya. First of all, the DK regimen products are great. I've been using them for 8 or 9 weeks now and my acne (mild) has noticeably improved. I use the products twice a day like recommended, but my skin is still left dry hours after application. I use a generous amount of the moisturizer as well. Also, I try to be quick when I use the cleanser to minimize dryness as much as possible. I have read that it will take a while before the skin gets used to the products and dryness goes away. I also read
  10. Alright, I shall try one pump and see how that goes. I have a pretty slim face, so one pump covers my face...twice.
  11. I've been on the treatment for 6 weeks now and have only today tried the full 2 pumps for the benzoyl peroxide. It seems waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much. Before the 2 pumps I was already very generous with the amount I *troweled* on my face. Being the non-working full time senior in college (about to jump into the phD program), my money is tight. What is everyone's consensus on whether or not to actually use the two full pumps. I was thinking of giving the 2 full pumps a try for a week, but I'm afraid
  12. Excellent. Thanks for all the help, guys.
  13. I guess I wasn't clear. My mistake. I just wanted to know if people do anything about the oil that builds up throughout the day. ATM, I do nothing because even rinsing with water makes the products come off, maybe not completely, but they do come off. I just keep the products on as long as I can, many times until I shower at night before going to bed, after which I apply the second treatment.
  14. If I don't shower until night time, should I go the whole day without as much as simply rinsing my face with water just to keep the products on? That's what customer service told me, but I find that hard to believe. I mean that just means I have that days sweat and dirt built up on my face from being outside and walking around downtown; my campus is in the heart of the city.
  15. Heya. I've been using the regimen for close 6 weeks now. I'm a full time senior in college. I wake up around 7, put on the regimen, and then head to school to come home around 5 pm. My question is, do you guys just keep the products on the whole day without even rinsing your face with water until your second application at night? What about when you shower and the products come off? I shower at different times throughout the day depending on how busy I am. Sometimes I shower before I sleep and t
