Amazing Review by Sarah

I have tried so many different washes for acne, and this was the first that actually worked and KEPT working. I have used one or two in the past that cleared up my skin and worked for a couple of months, but then the acne would come back and it was like the face wash wouldn't work any more. I have been using this for over a year and it is amazing! My skin is sensitive and pretty oily, and this has helped the oil dry up a little ( I still get pretty oily, but not as soon), and I hardly ever break out. When I do it is usually small and goes away fast, and usually because I fell asleep with my makeup on (oops). I absolutely love this face wash, and recommend it to anyone fighting acne!

This is the best face wash i have EVER used. Since i was 12 i have used every possible type of face wash to calm my acne and i never had good results. As an adult its not as bad as it was when i was a teenager but still got acne all over my chin. This stuffed work and it worked pretty darn quick. I use it in the am and pm. I have never been so happy with results. I highly recommend it. The smell isnt awesome but i dont smell it after i wash it off.

I've been battling cystic acne for a year now! Changing birth control really made my face go crazy! Finding a good birth control took some time and I was finally seeing my face clear up. However, I was still getting those horrible under the skin cystic bumps! Got to the point where I was so depressed and didn't want to leave my house. I had tried so many different face washes when a friend of mine suggested Dermadoctor and I'm so glad she did! I've been using it 3 weeks now and my skin hasn't look this good in forever!! The first two weeks all the bumps under my skin came to the surface and were gone within a day or two. Just be patient and wait it out!! It's doing it's purpose and killing those cystic nightmares!! I use it twice a day and at first it did dry out my skin a little but after continue use it no longer dries my face out. It did sting/burn when I first started using it but again, it's doing it's purpose and after a while it didn't sting anymore. You might be tempted to stop using it but just get through those first 2-3 weeks and you'll be so happy you did! After I wash my face at night I use the medicated acne control serum. Used together I've seen amazing results! Even my esthetician was in shock! And I'm pretty pale so I am also using organic Emu oil on the left over red marks from the cystic acne, which is working great!

never in my 30 plus years of purchasing product after countless product for acne prone skin have i found such a wonderful cleanser as dermadoctor ain't misbehavin' acne cleanser. my problem like so many other suffers is that most drug store over the counter acne products are very drying which leads one to have to buy more product to counteract the cleanser, thus irritating the skin more. This cleanser heals as well as prevent. Aha and Bha all in one, who would have thought? Dermadoctor did. Listen closely people, don't waste your time and money going up and down the aisle looking for the right drug store acne products....THEY DON'T WORK. Believe me once you use this product, the 27.00 dollars they ask for pales in conparison to the results you will get. It will seem like pennys that you will gladly pay. Thank you Dr. Kunin for staying in school and more school!
P.S. You can use it in the shower, I didn't like the whole completely dry method, so i tried my own, just lightly towel dry your face and hands so it is damp, then use the product, just don't wet your face or hands until your done. My results are terrific.

I'm a 39 year old African-American woman who has suffered from severe acne and hyperpigmentation since 12 years old. I'm scared to think about the amount of money spent over the years, searching for a treatment. It doesnt help that I'm also a self proclaimed product junkie. Anyway, I was convinced that hormonal acne is something that I would just have to learn to live with. Fast forward, I purchased this product on December 30th because of the reviews...really had no real expectations. I noticed a subtle change in my skin wirhin the 1st few weeks or so. On Feb 13th, for the first time in many, many years...my face was free of pimples, cysts and deep below the skin nodules!!! Now, I can focus my efforts on getting rid of the post acne marks...I feel like I'm in a dream..but I'm not! This is finally my reality! Dermadoctor products are a life saver as well as a life changer!! My search is finally over for what works for me. I urge any acne sufferers to make this purchase...and thank me later!!!! Lol

Finally hope for a lifetime cystic acne sufferer Review by Mollymayhem

I had horrible acne as a teenager... Huge, under the skin, painful cystic acne which later turned into scabs and scars. I had gotten a prescription as a teen and that worked wonders... And I enjoyed beautiful clear skin for about 5 years, save for the odd one that would pop up here an there.

When I was in my mid-20's the cystic acne came back with a vengeance and this time I even got a permanent pitted scar beside my mouth.

I went to the doctor about a year ago who prescribed me benza clin topical cream that turned my skin into alligator skin... No amount of moisturizer could stop my face from looking scaly... I couldn't wear foundation because it just highlighted how dry my skin was. She also said she could prescribe me antibiotic pills that I would have to take for as long as I would like the cysts to stay away (which is forever!!!)

I tried every "natural" remedy out there from coconut oil and baking soda (which actually is a nice exfoliant), honey, apple cider vinegar, you name it...I used Dermalogica Clean Start system and nothing will stop these bumps from hell.

I'm a gym rat so I sweat every day and no matter if I wash my face as soon as I finish my workout a new painful bump will greet me the next day. Ugh

I've read amazing reviews on this product and I received my order today and I used it as soon as I opened the box...

I can FEEL it working as soon as I put it on my skin. I let it sit there for about a minute before rinsing and I immediately noticed how much brighter, cleaner feeling and soft my skin looks. Obviously too early to tell how much it will impact my cystic acne but for the first time I am optimistic at finally controlling my awful skin problems. I'm 30 and sick of looking like an acne prone teenager! I thought good skin was one of the benefits of aging! This product will hopefully be the ticket to clear skin. :)

Ps you get a HUGE bottle of it so it seems expensive but you get a lot of product.

I have suffered from adult acne for about 9 years now. After getting a facial at my favorite beauty store (ulta),the shin therapist recommended I try ain't misbehavin by dermadoctor.
After about four weeks I noticed my redness from previous breakouts were much much lighter and my break outs were almost non existent.
It has been about 3 months now and I have had 1 pimple that was so small I could barely see it. I have never been happier with my skin.

Love this product line!! Review by HopeAgain

Quality

Well, first, I have to qualify that the key to all skincare is to use the same brand/product line for your skincare because they're all designed to work together and that delivers the best results. So, when I try a new product line, I try the line - not just one individual thing, so I feel a little weird posting a review for just one product (I guess I'll post this on the other products I'm using too). Anyway, oddly enough I read about DermaDoctor in a Jezabel article about adult onset cystic acne. I was curious and hopped on over to the website. I've tried TONS of other product lines and brands since my once zit-free skin turned into a nightmare of cystic acne at 25 years old (seriously! Not a teenager. Why was this happening?!). 6 years later, I still hadn't found anything that helped THAT much. My doctor put me on a clinical anti-cyst topical gel. It helped, but not that much and turned my skin into a greasy mess. I decided to give this a try. I got this cleaser, the Ain't Misbehavin' serum, and the Ain't Misbehavin' face mask. My skin started improving noticeably. I decided to add the Litmus test toner and Litmus test facial moisturizer and WOW. My skin hasn't looked this good well. . . ever. Even back in my younger days when I didn't get acne, I ALWAYS had stubborn blackheads on my nose that I'd resigned to managing with a combo of attacking them once a week with a blackhead remover and covering them with makeup. They are GONE. I couldn't believe it. After all these years, no blackheads! And, no acne!!! Anyway, I've read some reviews about miraculous overnight results. Skincare doesn't work that way. It usually takes between 6-12 weeks to really start seeing results. I will say that I noticed improvement within the first week, and now 8 weeks later, my face is clear and (dare I use a cliche?) my complexion is luminous. Even my boyfriend commented on how great my skin looks, and he doesn't usually notice things like that. This stuff is not cheap, but at least in my case, it is worth every penny. If you're like me and your skin suddenly decided to revert to its teenage years well into adulthood, I'd say do yourself a favor and try these products!

I've only had this product for about a week and a half now but I am seeing great results! I was getting a few pimples here and there but when they came in they were huge, deep and painful. I'm assuming that right now the little tiny pimples that i'm getting are from the product opening my pores and getting all the "junk" out. The other great thing is that if i do get a pimple by the next morning it's gone! There is literally a one day turn around!! I love it and will be using this from now on.
Also, I have somewhat senstive skin (proactive drys my face so bad that it's painful) and this makes my face a little red but not dry, peeling or cracking like proactive would. I would recommend this to my friends. (I use this with the Ain't misbehavin' sunblock and the toner).

After reading the reviews you will see that it's unanimous. This product is by far the best. I have suffered from acne since around 12. I am now 33. I have gone to the dermatologist and tried many different prescribed medications. Not until I started working at Sephora and the rep explained how the product worked. It makes so much sense. So I bought it. I noticed a difference from the first week. I would use it in the morning and my make up went on nice and I didn't have such oily skin. The more you use it the better everything gets. I feel like my face finally found it's pH balance with Derma Doctor. Just remember to put the cleanser on a DRY face first. There are hundreds of brands at Sephora but this is the ONE that I stand behind 100%. I get tons of other skin care products for free but just give it away because why fix what isn't broken. DERMA DOCTOR is the best!!!!!!!!! And you should read her books.

I'm 29 years old and I've struggled with the strangest adult acne on my face in my 20's. My problem areas were my chin, chin line and t zone with stubborn blackheads and pimples. It's cliche, but I've tried everything from expensive Dior face treatments to Proactive, Murad to store items like Neutrogena and Simple. It wasn't until I saw Dermadoctor at Sephora that my life started to change! I will say that the cleanser alone did not work for me but it is very gentle with a mild scent. I paired it with the Dermadoctor Blackhead Treatment, washing twice a day, then applying blackhead treatment, and I had my beautiful, even skin back. On a side note, I also tried the sunscreen, but I would break out after each use, so I stopped using it. Hope this helps!

I've had horrible acne for what seems like forever. I have tried everything (including Accutane), but nothing seemed to work. I started using this facewash about two weeks ago and my skin has never looked better! I highly recommend leaving it on your face for approximately 10 min. (products may sting a little) before washing it off. This helps to remove any excess dead skin leaving you skin smooth and soft.

MIRACLE Review by Casey

I am in my late twenties, and I suffer from acne. I've had acne since my teens, but it has evolved over the years. I don't get breakouts all the time anymore like when I was younger... about every few weeks or so now. But when I get zits, it's those huge cystic kind that HURT. They pop up along my jawline and are incredibly humiliating.

I was suffering from a huge cystic acne blemish that was getting worse. It was about day 10 of this that I went online to find a product to try. I've tried EVERYTHING. ProActive, Rx topical meds, Murad, and many other products - literally everything. I spend so much $ trying to cure myself. So I thought I couldn't lose with this. I read some great reviews about this product working for hormonal acne. So I bought this cleanser and the serum also. I couldn't believe the results. My face was basically clear in two days of using this product. And the little breakouts that I've had since aren't bad at all and only last a day. It didn't dry out my face (like most things do), and my foundation looks flawless now. It made my skin not only clear but supple and dewy. I can't wait to tell my dermatologist about this product.

It smells like acne medicine, and it's kinda hard to squeeze out of the tube, but who cares? IT WORKS.

After trying everything in the store and also some VERY $ products I didn't get my hopes up with this one. I also added Benzoyl Peroxide lotion for after I wash my face. I feel the combo is a acne killer. Before I used this cleanser the Ben. Per. didn't work and dried my skin, but I guess this cleanser works so well the Ben.Per. can now go deep in my pores and kill the acne and doesn't dry my skin any more. The redness on my skin is almost gone and my acne looks 50% better. I expect full results in about another week or so. Nothing as ever made my skin look so much better in so little time!

I am literally a skin-care queen - I have tired just about every single product out there. I never had acne as a teenager but now in my mid-20's I find my skin often breaking out along my jawline and my cheeks have taken on a bumpy texture. It's not pretty. I bought this product after stopping ProActive because I found it too abrasive to use daily - and am very happy with the results. Within a week, I noticed a significant improvement in my skin's texture. I haven't seen a blemish on my jawline in weeks and my redness is gone. It is definitely a strong cleanser - and I would recommend wearing SPF on your face if you're out in the sun. If you're feeling frustrated with other products out there - this one really is worth a try....it really did work for me.

I got this cleanser as a bonus for buying the serum and didn’t like it initially. Turns out I was using it wrong! I was using it like a regular cleanser, but this one you put on without water and then rinse off. I only tried it again because I had electrolysis recently for the first time and it turned my chin into a nightmare battlefield. I had read online that using glycolic acids can help the appearance and remembered I had this in the cabinet. [NOTE: the first week after electrolysis I babied my skin with ice, an occasional alcohol swab, and polysporin]. The results were Amazing. After 2 times, my skin looked smoother and the bumps from the electrolysis were reduced. Also, the acne caused from a week of smothering my skin with polysporin stopped in its tracks. Because of how well it was working, I started using it on the rest of my face and am SHOCKED that the stubborn scaliness I am constantly battling on my cheeks is 90% gone. I have sensitive skin that turns red and tight on a dime. I would never have dreamed that I could use a glycolic product and have it actually IMPROVE. I have previously tried Dermadoctor’s Cool, Calm, & Corrected trio with no results. I am constantly trying to moisturize the dryness with expensive moisturizers, I tried the Clarisonic facial cleanser, different exfoliants…the works. If anything worked, it was only right after I cleansed, but by the end of the day it was scaly again. MY SKIN IS SO SOFT! I have been looking for this product for y-e-a-r-s. Using this product is now my favorite part of the day.

Within one week of using it twice a day my scars were almost two shades lighter...I was amazed. Haven't had a breakout since using this product and my scars continue to lighten and get smoother. Saved me money, no down time and most of all no pain!

I began using the DERMAdoctor Acne line cleanser, serum & mask and must say I could not be happier. Never before have I used a cleanser that goes on a dry face and was a littler nervous. After two months with the product, my face is free of break-outs (which has never happened before) and feels much smoother and cleaner. I have now hooked my younger brother, who began seeing results within days! This product is more than worth your time & money!

In my 40's and still get breakouts. This works great, and I've hardly had any zits since I started. I also love the acne mask and physical chemistry. I started using a cheaper neutrogena zit gel, tho.

In the morning, I put it in and leave it for a bit while in the shower, like a mask... I think it works well that way. I also use the serum on my sensitive skin.
