  1. Does anyone have concerns about using alot of the BP cream, say Neutrogena 2.5% when it's just a small tube and averaging around $5 a pop? Dan, how often do you have to go out and replace a tube?

  3. ive been using 2.5% bp as recommended. after usin it for a while i noticed it brough down some pimples however most of the time it seems not to work or make them even bigger. (???!) i usually dont have pimples however some has came up and i am tryin to get rid of them. does anyone know what i might be doin wrong?
  4. So I wash my face in the morning with Burts Bees Tomato Soap and Benzoyl Peroxide and about half way through the day my face is oily. Not really oily but just enough to where it bugs me and I have to apply powder again. Any suggestions on how to keep the oil down?
  5. all my spots were going but now im getting lumps instead of spots, anyone know what this could be?
  6. hi all, been on this board for ages but i forgot my username & password ! ANyway, a bit of myself first. Been an acne sufferer since i was a teenager and i'm now 22. My face had been GREAT before (around 19-20 years old) when i was using clinique soap and nothing else. Anyway like many here i experimented with tonnes of product before usually the high end department store ones, biotherm, clinique, clarins, armanis, yadayayada and the one that really made my acne WORST was pro active. It wa
  7. I just started the regimen about 5 days ago and so far, so good. I'm using Olay gentle facial cleanser, proactiv advanced blemish treatment w/ 5% benzoyl peroxide and Neutrogena Moisturizer w/ SPF 15. Do you think this is okay?
  8. Hey guys i just got home from the Derm and i have some good and some bad news ill go with the bad first i THAUGHT i was only at a state of mild to moderate acne but what the derm tells me today my face is up to SEVERE CYST acne now so he gave me some topical stuff to try and in 4 weeks if not he is gonna fight with my insurance for them to pay for accutane for me i really hope i get it because im tired of these topical stuff not working He prescribed mono something iforget the name....Benzoyl
  9. i've been using BP for about a month or so (not on dan's regiment), and i've only used it at night. the reason for this is that it smells like crap, and even after i shower in the morning apparently the smell isn't gone because my friends will sometimes joke that i smell like old milk/cheese (which is obviously the BP). i'm using brevoxyl 4% creamy wash, but i've also used triaz which smells just as bad. is there any brand of BP that doesn't have an offensive odor to it?

    Anyone else notice it thickens skin? For me, BP seemed to thicken skin and leave black heads ect... hidden under. As a 1 and a half year user of this, i noticed it very slowly thickenned my skin as time went by. However, it is slowly returning to its original form though.
  11. I'm a newbie here so hello! Just a thought for Dan here.... I know of some small-scale internet merchants who sell some of their products on eBay mostly to attract people to their website. People search for something, find an auction that seems pretty good then they check out the seller's website. That's how I found the absolute best supplier for my chinchilla supplies. Even if some of it sells kind of low it still has the positive effect of drawing business to the site and to get the
  12. do u have to apply mostrurizer after applying bp gel? i havnt been doing it and my face dosent really get dry. is this ok or should i still be putting some on?
  13. I need some help and quick! Ok these are the products that i really want to use, by Clean & Clear: Contiuous Control Wash (salicylic acid 2%) Clarifying Toner (salicylic acid 0.5%) Maximum Strength Persa-Gel 10 (benzoyl peroxide 10%) Dual Action Moisturizer (salicylic acid 0.5%) Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets The only problem is, i don't know what order to use the products in. I'm thinking I would use the Continuous Control Wash first, then the Clarifying Toner, then the Persa-Gel,
  14. what is the ph level of the basis skin bar used with the regimen? i heard some sensitive skin types can take as long as 36 hours after a shower to return to 5.5. i want to make sure i'm balancing this out. my regimen is basis skin bar alpha hydrox 8% benzoyl peroxide
  15. Ive had acne for 6 years now, and its slowing down. Ive tried accutane, tried many creams w/ benzoyl peroxide, and im in great physical condition (bodybuilder). I dont mess with anabolics (steroids), and have great nutrition. Im 21 years old and the upside to all this is that i dont break out freakeshly like my teenage years. I get maybe 4-7 pimples in one day, JUST LIKE THAT, but it only happens once a month or twice a month ( very awkward and strange). My face looks like its making progress,
  16. Hi everyone. I wanted to share some information I've found about Hibiclens. CHLORHEXIDINE topical antiseptic (Hibiclens®, Hibistat®, and others) is used to clean the skin prior to surgery. Chlorhexidine destroys bacteria, which helps prevent infections during and after surgery. Chlorhexidine cleanser (Hibiclens®) may also be used to treat acne. If you go to page 29 of http://www.cleaning101.com/antibacterial/2...sion-AppdxA.pdf it tells of a study that compared Hibiclens to 5% Benzoy
  17. Has anyone tried this? Can I get some reviews? Im thinking about purchasing it..
  18. Is there actually any real difference between Panoyxl Aquagel 2.5% and Dan's BP gel???
  19. Hi guys First of all I have to say I love this website. I feel for everyone out there, my heart goes out to all of you. I understand all of you, I have acne aswell and i hate it, i dont know why its here, but Im glad to know Im not alone! I know this appears really long, but please guys, its my first time on this and maybe I can help you with advice and maybe you can help me. Ive had mild acne for about 3 years, but in the past 6 months - a year I have had the most worst turn. I used to get
  20. I have enough questions and this is my story. I am a 17 male... I had very light acne since 12 but was taking minocin which kept my skin extremely clear. The summer after I turned 15 my face was becoming greasier... but still very mild... I was starting to get the occasional small zit, but nothing really, I was content. At this same time, I started smoking marijuana regularly with my friends because I enjoyed it and it was good times. About a year later, my body was immune to minocin, it was
  21. So far I have been on Benzoyl Peroxide 10% for about five days. I use it day and night. My face is about 90% clear. My face is not that red yet, but it is dry. And I am peeling a little, nothing much. I wanted to know if there was a really good lotion that anyone uses. My lotion helps for a couple of hours, but then it goes away. Thanks.
  22. Hey all I just received my bp gel today and I already used it. I like it so far. It isn't burning like that Clean & Clear Continuous Control Wash that has 10% bp in it. I tried to use a lot like Dan says but I don't want to waste it too quick. For those that use it on their whole face, do you use one finger's worth for everything? I'm guessing that's what it'd be.
  23. Hello, I just purchased the PanOxyl 10% Gel. I am using it at night and during the day. I have only been on it for one day, and I already see some improvement. Does anyone else use this or something similar to it? And I wanted to know if you break out at all while using this medication or does it just get better and better? Thanks.
  24. Yesterday I finally got desperate enough to go to a dermatologist. I mean after all I had not gone to one in over 10 years and I figured, hey what the heck nothing else is working for me so maybe I will get lucky. Well during the visit (which was very brief of course) I asked the derm about vitamin B5 and she just looked at me with a blank stare. This was of course after she prescribed me the usual suspects, tetracycline and Rx benzoyl peroxide. She told me that B5 is not even used to treat acne
  25. Hello everyone, I was perscribed Differin Gel 0.1% for night time and Benzoyl Peroxide 5% for the day. I heard that both combinations together work great. But I wanted to know if you ever break out at all once you start both medications? Because I know that Differin can make you break out at first, but if you combine the Peroxide will you not? I just want to get better, I really do not want to break out first and then get better! Thanks so much.
