  1. My AHA+ smells pretty strongly. Like I get just a bit disgusted when using it. It smells like a mix of paint and mustard, a little sweet, so maybe honey mustard. I did read that other users noted that it had a smell but I wasn't sure about how strong it was. I can withstand the smell if it is normal for everyone else, but I'm just curious if there is something wrong with mine. Another detail I want to share is that the bottle arrived in my mailbox on Friday, but I was unable to pick it up u
  2. So I have been using the regimen for around 1 1/2 months. I have had success but I still have some clogged pores and maybe one or two small pimples. Unfortunately, every time one pimple goes away it seems that another one sprouts up in a different place, so I decided to start using AHA. First, I am just wondering it is OK to put AHA on even if I still have a few pimples. Just to let you all know, I have only been doing half AHA and half moisturizer cause I dont want to breakout. Second, when I u
  3. So I know there are a millions threads specific to flesh colored bumps, but I just had to share my own since everyone is different. Backstory: I've had mild-moderate acne since I was 15 years old (I'm now 20). The worst case happened at 18-19 where I broke out horribly on my cheeks and this acne was stubborn as heck. It was red, big, and left marks. Fortunately, the acne.org regimen did wonders and cleared my face up along with the hyperpigmentation! A year later, my forehead is still kind of
  4. I use Aczone (dapsone gel) in the morning and Ziana (clindamycine + tretinion ) at night. How do I use Glycolic acid and how often with combination of my topical routine? Like how do I switch it around with a BHA. Also I am thinking of using ACV as a toner , maybe later but for right now I want to use a BHA and if my skin responds well then possible use AHA ( I'm planning on using Paula's choice Pore Perfecting BHA exfoliant 2% ) heard good things about this BHA and it contains Green tea which
  5. Has anyone else experienced getting only half bottles when you ordered them? Disappointed
  6. I started using the regimen January of 2015. And stopped later summer of that year. When i started using it again this January, it didn't really gave a lot of difference to my skin as it did when i used it the first time last year. And when i started using the AHA this spring, it gave me allergic reactions to it. At first, i really doubted that it was from the AHA so i stopped using it just to be sure. And my allergies was gone. The puffiness and the redness of my face was gone. So i started usi
  7. I use Aczone (dapsone gel) in the morning and Ziana (clindamycine + tretinion ) at night. How do I use Glycolic acid and how often with combination of my topical routine? I have some acne flaring up since I am weaning off with Oracea 40 mg because I have been on the antibiotic (Doxycycline Hyclate 100mg) treatment since August 2015. I told my derma , I think its time to get off it because antibiotic for even a short period can do a lot of damage healthwise. So since weaning off my acne is sorta
  8. Hi! i'm turning to this because I cannot get rid of my closed comedones. i'm not even going to list my skincare routine right now.... I'm JUST wondering if anyone has had experience with this frustrating things. I don't get many pimples anymore, i just have a decent amount of closed comedones on my cheeks mainly.. A little on my forehead. I'm guessing it's from makeup foundation i've worn. But i cannot get them to go away. I started a new routine with AHA and BHA and i've had some improvement, b
  9. I have severe hormonal acne, but it has calmed down considerably lately and now I noticing a lot of hyper-pigmentation on my cheeks and chin which closely resembles active acne. I'm currently just trying to conceal it with BB creams (which are meant to have whitening properties), but preferably I would also like to fade it properly. I've been prescribed and applying benzoyl peroxide nightly for at least 6 weeks now and it has improved the severity and inflammation of my acne, but i ordered AHA
  10. Hi! im relatively new to the regimen, i started it a couple weeks ago and made the mistake of using 10% bp, my skin turned red and eventually i had a layer of dead skin that peeled of in large flakes, my skin felt tight and moisturizer did little to help but my acne seems to slowed and such. Im planning on buying from acne.org so i can stop with the hit and misses when buying from the store. As of right now i still get smaller dry flakes on my skin and cannot apply any more bp since i only have
  11. I am considering switching from bp to aha for my back due to bleaching and time constraints but am very nervous and don't want to mess with a great thing. Wondering-- I know retinoids must be applied religiously or they will not work, as you will just continually be getting your skin used t othe product. Does aha (and other chemical exfoliants) work the same way? If I use aha on a weekly basis or skip applications a few times will it be hugely less effective? One thin gI like about bp is tha
  12. I have finally found a regimen that works on my adult acne and wanted to share my results with you and let you know my routine. I struggled with mild to moderate acne since my early 20's. I have tried everything in the past! Even tried BP from Acne.org.... Finally, I discovered a perfect remedy by chance..... I use the following 2X a day: I have been blemish free for a month now!! Oil Free Acne Wash (any brand with Salicylic acid) AHA+ from Acne.org Clean and Clear Dual A
  13. Hello all, I'm not new to acne.org but i am new to AHA+. I haven't started using it yet, i just ordered some today. Hopefully it will arrive within a week. I've been on the Regimen for 4 weeks now. By the time the AHA+ gets to me i will be starting my 5th week on the regimen. Just to give you a little background on my acne. I have moderate acne. I started the regimen 4 weeks ago. I would usually get 4 to 5 zits on my face at a time. But now that i have been on the regimen for a little o
  14. Hi guys! Just checking in. I haven't really been on here for a couple of days since I've been busy with work. I guess I just wanted to give a quick update on my skin and also since I have been on the regimen for a couple of months now...a quick "what I have learned" post. HERE'S WHAT I'VE LEARNED: 1. Everybodys skin is different. And the same product will react differently to different people not only because of their skin types but also because of their skin sensitivity, or where they live, o
  15. Has anyone here used this? I'm trying to decide between ordering that or the Acne.org brand AHA and figuring out which one works best.
  16. Hello. Though I don't want to be entirely sure of it yet, it seems like I might've found solution to the bad acne I was having. But I have a lot of PIH ranging from darkish colors to redness, along with scars. Anyways, I've read in other threads here that AHA helps to get rid of the redness and PIH. So I was just wondering if anyone can recommend any products they might've tried that helped them to get rid of em.
  17. So I've been using The Regimen for about 2 and half months now and my skin is partly clear. There's still some hyper pigmentation from old pimples and my skin is still a little bumpy. However, my skin is really flaky and red and moisturizer doesn't really help, leaving my skin looking really parched. The moisturizer seems like it just lays on top of the dead skin and it makes my face look oily as well. I really want to scrub my face, but I don't since irritation = acne. I use Dan's AHA+ every 3
  18. Hey there, I've been on the regimen for a month and a half now, and a few days ago I started using AHA. Before this, my skin wasn't really dry/red from the BP any longer. Since I've begun using the AHA, it's flaking so much and is quite dry, too, even though I'm using the moisturiser too. Is this just initial drying? Also, what would you recommend is the best way to apply AHA?

    How often do people use it? i can't tell.. it's working for me but i don't want to over do it
  20. I have been on the regimen for 6 weeks now, so I have started ti incorporate Dan's AHA into my regimen to help with scarring. I wanted to know if it is okay to use the AHA both in the morning and at night. I know that it increases sensitivity to sunlight, but this shouldn't be a problem now that it is winter. At night, I have been using 1/2 Cerave moisturizer combined with 1/2 Dan's AHA, and was wondering if it is okay to do so in the morning as well to help speed up the fading process, or is th
  21. I get very minor bumps on my neck from shaving. I use the two-blade Trac II razor which has been very gentle on my neck (I recommend it). Nonetheless, I still have a few very small bumps. It's hardly noticable at all, but I'm wondering if I can get rid of the bumps with AHA+ or a Salicylic acid product (maybe the Stridex pads). I use The Regimen on my face and have been clear of acne for five years. But I don't want to use BP on my neck because I don't want to bleach collars, and I don't get muc
  22. i bought aha from this site something like year or so ago, but its still in my fridge and half full. is it old now to use or less effective or something like that? i dont wanna use it badly or buy new one, but its just there and i think i might use it if its still good, like why not but idk if its good idea.
  23. I just ordered Dan's BP a few days ago as I plan on using Cetaphil and CeraVe (and sublock in the AM) in place of his cleanser and moisturizer. After seeing some people's issues with their faces turning darker, now I'm really worried! I always thought BP was originally marketed many years ago as a bleaching agent (I mean it definitely does a good job at bleaching my hair line!) before the discovery of its uses for treating acne, so I'm curious as to why this is happening to some of you guys. I a
  24. Hello, everyone! So, I had started the Regimen, or a version with store brand products, pretty unsuccessfully about a year ago or so. My skin was just getting so dry that I cut it off, but, of course, my skin isn't doing that great. I actually took the time and figured out that it was the products that I had picked. Now I'm going to try to start up again, but I have some questions. What are the alternatives (brands) you know for BP and AHA that work well? Looking at the Acne.org store, t
  25. Hi everyone. I have been on the Regimen for a few months now. It has been a success and I am now clear, only getting a stray pimple every now and then. I also started using AHA as a night moisturiser every night over a month ago. I want to sort of phase out the regimen. The BP is costing me too much to sustain it and it is bleaching my hair. But I am loving the AHA as it's giving my skin a nice look and reducing my acne marks. Has anyone had success in removing BP from the regimen and just usi
