  1. I bought Dan's AHA, and when I opened the packaging, I noticed it was HOT! It must have been UPS keeping it in a hot truck. Some of it leaked as well. I am wondering: should I still use it? did the heat ruin it? Thanks!

    just got the AHA and i put it on after shaving and cleansing and yow(!!) did it sting. so the 2nd day i put it on 2.5 hrs after shaving and putting jojoba on and it still stung quite a bit. is this an issue with the guys who're using AHA?
  3. I feel like when I apply the AHA and it just pills up and falls off my face that it's not even going into my skin. So when the stuff JUST starts to ball up I stop rubbing it in and just let it dry. But then I feel like it's just dry on the surface and not actually getting absorbed... So my question is, if the AHA pills up and falls off, am I even going to get an effect out of it? Or is it like the bp where I need to keep rubbing it in until it feels like theres nothing on my face for it to

    AHA+ As Spot Treatment

    At what point should I use the AHA+ as a spot treatment in the morning? I normally use Dan's BP...wait 15 min and then use Cetaphil lotion. Should I apply the AHA+ in between the BP and lotion of after the lotion?
  6. So far I'm only using a Face Purifier from a small natural line that is very natural and gentle, not for acne, Dan's BP, and a little Vitamin E oil on my face because I ran out of moisturizer. So, I'm going to purchase products today, so I'm thinking... Face Purifier Dan's BP Rotate between Neutrogena Healthy Skin with AHA and Cetaphil Moisturizer with 3-5 drops of Jojoba oil in. Sound good? My skin is clearing up so well and so quickly, but it is dry. I was "following" the regimen but usi
  7. I've been on the Regimen since beginning of May and just now I received my first tube of AHA+. Should I use it as nightly mosturizer only or also apply it over my face after BP in the morning?

    AHA+ exfoliates?

    How exactly does it exfoliate the skin if you just put it on like a moisturizer? Plus, how well does it exfoliate the skin?

    AHA Thick vs Thin

    For the last 6 weeks I've had great skin for the first time since I was 12. I'd finally got the regimen perfect for myself, getting just the right amount of each product applied. Then my AHA ran out so I opened a new tube, which happened to be my first tube since the change to the thinner version. I'm not a happy chappy to say the least, I can't get this stuff to absorb easliy and my skin feels awful since I ran out of the thicker AHA. A few spots have started appearing and since the only thing
  10. I recently broke out with moderate acne. I no longer have inflamed acne.Just some red scars and a lot of very tiny flesh colored bumps on my cheeks. Will AHA+ get rid of these little bumps? they are so annoying!

    Hi, I have moderate back acne, I've been into a couple of chemists and I can a get a Benzol Peroxide 2.5% but they give me a blank stare when I ask for AHA or globulin acid Does anyone know where I can get the right products and what ones to go for in the UK? Cheers everyone!
  12. I just applied my first application of AHA+ about 5 minutes ago. I cleaned with the gentle cleanser, used BP, and then applied AHA+. Only problem is my skin stings a little bit right now. Normally I used a moisturizer after applying BP, but I've read in a few posts that when using AHA+ moisturizer is not necessary?
  13. Has anyone ever had this happen??...I washed my face with Dan's cleanser then put the aha on my face, waited for it to absorb, then i put Dans moisturizer on and it totally thinned out and felt like water! the consistency changed! it was very weird because the moisturizer is normally thick.

    Dan's AHA+ Question

    so i just got my AHA+ today, and i'm curious about the consistency of it. mine is pretty thin, to the extent that it will come out if i simply hold the tube upside down while its open. is this a bad thing? i heard that it is supposed to be as thick as/thicker than the bp. did i get a bad tube? or is it always like this?

    dry, itchy, red skin?

    Anyone know how to help heal severe dry skin? I put bp gel under my chin cause i had a few blemishes there and I guess I must have put some on my neck as well. Next thing you know my neck was all itchy and red. It almost looks like I got sunburned there.. but nowhere else. I've tried baby oil, lucerin moisturizer, aloe vera gel.. and well they all seem to work, but I want it to go away quicker! Oh and I used AHA on my neck and that stuff burrrrrrrrnnned! OUCH!
  17. I've been on the regimen for a little bit over 3 weeks now. I don't experience hardly any flaking, except around the eyebrows. However, my main problem has always been Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH). In fact, that's how I found myself in this mess to begin with, but that's a long story. Basically, I want to use Olay Complete with SPF 15 in the daytime, because you're supposed to wear some SPF to reduce PIH. Additionally, at night I want to use Dan's AHA because apparently it

    How exactly do AHAs help with acne? Is it simply because of the exfoliation effect or is there something more to it?
  19. Hey I was wondering if anyone had the same problem as me, and maybe someone out there knows what to do about it. One night after letting the BP dry on my face, I put on some AHA+ to go to bed with. Having not putting it on in a while it really burned. It wasn't really problem and its not my main concern. The next day after working out in the morning and then taking a shower, I noticed and felt something strange on my face. It appeared as if the AHA came out of my skin and showed in some spots

    New AHA Bottle

    Just wondering if the new AHA bottle has started shipping out or if the old ones are still being sold?
  21. I have dans aha with me and i have been on duac for 3 weeks + doxycycline (100 mg 2x a day) When wud it be safe to include dans aha? Is it okay to use it with dauc? (duac contains 5 % Bp and clindamycine)
  22. I recently started using the Acne.org AHA at night. Yesterday evening I thought I'd add some extra moisture to my skin after the AHA had completely dried, but somehow it had a very odd reaction to the AHA. It was like the moisturizer turned to water as soon as it came in contact with my skin ! Has anyone else noticed this? Are we not supposed to put moisturizer over the AHA (I did this because the AHA isn't moisturizing enough for me)? There's nothing wrong with the moisturizer AFAIK, because

Glycoderma .glycolic acid Complete Care Revitalizing Cream 25% from amazon. But I just can't find it. I only see eye cram glycolic acid 10% Can apply tha to my acne? I'm not going to apply it all over face like BP . Does anyone know and use another brand that gives good results?
  24. Ive been on the regimen for about a month now. Love the results, been using the Cleanser x2 a day, then BP, then Moisturezer in the morning with Jojoba oil and AHA+ as spot treatment. Same at night except using a full spread of AHA+ However, starting in the Last week, after putting the AHA+ on, it just peels/rubs off.... The regimen has worked wonders with the addition of the AHA+, but how the heck do I stop it from peeling off/rubbing off? It like just comes off in strings now and I dont k
