Post the acne cure plan

I wondered if those of you on the plan could share your favorite 2BHA/8AHA/5BP products and your results? Also, would one of those gel face masks be good for icing?

I'm on the plan, and keep meaning to post a big update, but haven't had the time.

For the BHA i'm using Neutrogena Clear Pore Treatment, which is 2% salicylic acid, and is like a clear gel. It's meant to be left on overnite, but works just fine for the program.

For AHA, I'm using Alpha Hydrox Oil Free Formula, also a gel like consistency, with 10% glycolic acid. This stuff is great, doesn't irritate my skin, and is only about $10. I did have to get used to it- it burned at first, and sometimes I'd have to take a day off from it, but otherwise no problems.

For BP, I'm using Neutrogena On the Spot Acne Treatment, a standard BP white creme, with 2.5% BP.

I bought one of those reusable ice packs, made for use on joints and stuff, and that works fine, so i would think if your face pack is freezable, and reusable, it should work out great. If it is freezable, and reusable, let me know, and post the brand, so I can get one too!

Thanks, Sedulous - how long have you been using the plan and how's it going? I've seen those masks before and I'm going to look for one today when I'm out. If I find one I'll let you know...
