I really wanted it to work
on September 4, 2012
I used this for a long, long time. I love the creamy texture, the fresh/tingly feeling it leaves and the way it smells, but it seemed to have made my acne worse. First it made my skin dry and a little flaky, but that stopped once I switched from using it twice a day to once at night. Then I noticed I was getting small pimples on my forehead and cheeks. After washing with the cleanser my face was soft and the smaller pimples disappeared. Somewhere throughout the day the small pimples would come back and grow into whiteheads. Even after it broke me out I continued to use it, thinking my skin would get used to it and clear up eventually but I was wrong. It's great for acne on other parts of the body though, I use it on my chest and back in the shower and it clears up breakouts and makes my skin smooth. I might try it on my face again in the summer when my skin isn't so dry, since it's a lot of cleanser to waste.
