    Dan's BP and Eyes

    Hi, I've been on the Regimen for the past 2 months and recently switched to Dan's BP about a month ago. Everything's been going great when it comes to my acne, but a few weeks ago I noticed my eyes were being affected. I know there's other posts about the dryness, (which I also have) so I'll take the different advice for that. What I'd like to know is if the BP burns the eyes of anyone else who uses it. I do not put the BP on my eyes or around my eyes. However, whenever i'm applying it, there i

    No pump on BP container

    Hi, I've ordered the "Big" kit twice before this, this would be my 3rd time ordering it. When my package arrived, the BP did not have a pump on it. I'm not sure if this is new or if there was just a mistake, but i'm just curious as to how to get the BP out. When I unscrew the cap, there is a tube as if it was made to be pumped out, yet no pump is on the bottle or in the box!
  3. So I'm going to be going on the regimen very soon. I have two cleansers that I can use. One of them has salicylic acid in it. The other is a normal over-the-counter mild cleanser. I'm wondering if combining salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide is a bad idea. I'm afraid it may cause a reaction of some sort, or be too harsh on the skin. (I also have a moisturizer.) Also, the benzoyl peroxide that I am using is Benzagel 5% USP gel, (5% was the only kind I could find). The box says to cleanse face
  4. My pharmacy has BP 5% GEL and I was wondering if this was ok to use.I know that it says to use 2.5% but will this work ok?!
  5. I am not sure if this goes in the regimen part of the forums, but since it kinda is related to the regimen, ill post it here. The main thing im wondering is, Since BP is indeed irritating and does cause dry skin, my question is, how does BP compare to other acne products (retinoids, retina, differin, clindamycin, salycic acid, aha etc). When i say compare, i mean as in what is more harsh, 2.5 % BP or these other acne products?

    Texture of Dan's BP gel?

    Hi guys, I have been using the regimen for about 6 months now, with a three month gap when I moved from the USA to South Korea and discovered they don't have BP here. I was using Neutrogena's On the Spot in the USA because it was pretty easy for me to get a hold of and I was used to it. But since moving to Korea, I wanted to buy a larger size so I don't have to pay out the rear for shipping so frequently. It's the first time I've used Dan's products, and I'm noticing it feels kind of different

    Putting Bp on nose acne

    Hello everyone. I am not sure if this was the correct place to ask this, but is it fine putting bp (2.5 percent, i.e.e neutrogena on the spot/ OR duac gel 5 percent BP) on your nose pimple? Can the BP cause scarring on the nose? Thanks
  8. I went to my dermatologist who gave me benzoyl peroxide wash 10% and also benzoyl peroxide gel to put on after I washed with the wash. After a while my face became really red. It also burned really bad while I both washed and applied the Gel afterwards. We discovered that I am allergic to benzoyl peroxide!! I have had this bad tendency of washing my face rather harshly sometimes in hopes of clearing up my acne. My face is pretty red now; I don't know if it's because of my acne or because of my t
  9. Hey all! I noticed a lot of people swear by BP on here. I totally understand this, because of Dan's regimen. However, I am thinking that SA may be better for me. Out of every product I have used, St. Ive's Apricot Scrub has done the most for my skin (which has SA in it). While BP does dry out my acne, it leaves me with prolonged red marks. Some people do not agree with this notion but my skin is absolute proof that it prolongs red marks (at least for me). One of my main skin problems is red ma
  10. So its hard to find much information about Dermify outside of the paid advertising or some kind of weird looking webpage. Short story: I started to have pro-active fail after years of it working fairly well. My skin got red and broke out alot. I switched to everything under the sun in the past year, skin id, max clarity, acne.org regimen, and at one point started just washing my face with a gentle cleanser and kept my skin moisturized. Anything with BP or Salicyclic acid burned my skin af
  11. Just wondering if ya'll keep your 16oz Acne.org BP bottle open between regimen applications or do you close it up? Personally I haven't yet decided what I'm gonna do but I figure keepin it wide open for 12 hours at a time might dry things up a bit in there. Remember: "It's the little things that kill" - Bush Let's figure this out! Looking forward to what you guys have to say.
  12. help ! does anybody know of a good face wash that you can get at walmart that will get deep into my pores and clean the dirt and bacteria ? i read by an expert on acne online, that i need to use a gentle face wash, because they work the best, one without any oil (except olive or avacado, if i have to use them), no sulfide, sulfite, or sulfate . DEFINITELY no sodium lauryl sulfate or sodium laureth sulfate . no mineral oil . no grit, grain, or scrub except oat if neccessary . and no benzoyl perox

    Can I refrigerate the BP?

    Hi all. So just two days ago, I started using Dan's BP. It's really hot and humid now where I live, so I think the BP is possibly runnier than it is normally. I used to use the skiniD BP, but ran out. It had a relatively thick consistency, so it stayed put on my face, dried faster, and I was able to apply less but get a great effect. Dan's BP is so quite watery on the contrary, and I am having a hard time applying a full fingers length without wasting half of it on my fingers (the excess doesnt
  14. After reading about Benzoyl Peroxide on this site, I figured i might as well give it a shot, so i bought some PanOxyl Aquagel 2.5%. I've been using it over the last few days, and it has definitely cleared up my skin. However I'm mainly looking for advice (not sure if this is the right place?) because two days ago i woke up with quite a very red face and lots of bumps on my forehead. Since then i have discontinued using it and have been using a lot of moisturizer since my skin is very dry. I hav
  15. I am so happy because I finally found a regimen that works for me....ok so this is what I do: -Cleanse face with a simple cleanser(I usually use cetaphil) -WAIT FOR YOUR SKIN TO COMPLETELY DRY -Apply witch hazel to your face(I keep a bottle of witch hazel in my fridge and I add 4-5 drops of tea trea oil to the witch hazel....I keep this in the fridge because it keeps the witch hazel cold and the coldness of the witch hazel helps keeps the pores closed) -WAIT FOR YOUR SKIN TO COMPLETELY DRY -App

    BP amount?

    So I just started the Regimen this week with the acne.org products and I'm really excited to see how they will work for me in the next few weeks. Here's my question though...I have been using Proactiv for the last 3 months with no luck. Since my skin is used to BP applied to it 2x a day already, should I begin the regimen with the small amount of BP that is recommended, or should I use the full amount?
  17. A little bit about the redness: I don't have it at home, only at school and public places. Although it is always red in school, it gets worse when I blush. Which for some reason I do a lot more now. The red face started a year ago when I was using Retin-A (not sure what percent). I then stopped using it after a few months and switched to 10% BP. This kept me (basically) clear, but I still had a red face, which was one of the reasons I stopped using Retin-A. I put up with it, because, hey,

    Bp Clumps?

    Anyone know if I'd get less clumping with Dan's moisturizer, or some other moisturizer? I've been using proactiv lately with 0 clumping, but I have almost a full tube of the acne.org BP
  19. I just turned 59 and I don't have a horrible problem, but I've gone from "zits" to white heads. I tend to get them a lot in my eyebrows of all places, but they can show up anywhere. This site has been a huge help to me even though I'm not totally following the routine. For some reason I thought the beta hydroxy was what I was supposed to use instead of benzoyl peroxide, so I had Paula's Choice 1% gel and was using that. I used quite a bit more than I have in the past and applied it twice a day
  20. Hi guys, time for me to reorder BP. Been using it since Dan began the regimen. I can't buy JUST the BP separately now?? I've never liked the cleanser or moisturizer, but the BP is amazing.
  21. I have two questions about CP. You can skip over the little anecdote I've provided in italics. I have been using Clindamycin Phospate topical lotion now for over 3 months now. My skin has been consistently moderate. Sometimes it clears up well for several days. Sometimes it gets a little worse than moderate. How I've been using it has also been consistent for quite some time now: Morning: -PanOxyl 10% BP facewash -Apply Clindamycin Phospate to clean, dry skin -wait several
  22. Hello everybody I have a bit of a history so I’d like to apologize in advance for the very long text and thank you for reading further. I’ve had a problem for quite some years now. I’m 24 years old now. It all started when I was 16. I’ve never had a single zit or whitehead/blackhead. Then suddenly I broke out on my chin. I got some cystic acne. Not bad, but a little. I startet antibiotics which helped a lot. I got totally clear and got compliments on my skin whereever I went. Then sudd

    Bp Bottle Help

    Okay, so I use the BP bottle for about 3 weeks and then, I have like a little over a quarter left in the bottle, but when I press the pump down it doesnt come out, I tried shaking it but nothing. Is there a smart way to take all this BP out and add it to another BP bottle??? I got 2 BP bottles now each has a quarter left.
  24. Recently my skin has gone from severe acne to light (only a few pimples per month). I just ordered Dan's bp, and I was wondering if my skin would go back to its original, horrid state if i stop using it? Also, will bp make my hyperpigmentation (from acne) worse or better?
  25. Have any of you guys read The Acne Cure by Dr. Terry Dubrow? his regimen uses salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and benzoyl peroxide with cold packs to get rid of acne in nearly 95% of cases in JUST 6 weeks. I've read the book several times. I haven't tried the regimen yet because my current regimen works pretty well for me.. I won't guarantee that his regimen will work, but the book does give a lot of useful/helpful information. I recommend reading it.
