Acne on back...
on March 2, 2011
My daughter suffers from terrible acne on her upper back. She'd been using this Neutrogena body scrub for it and, according to her, it worked okay... but not the 'bee's knees' so-to-speak. She was having to shower twice-a-day with it... in the morning before school, and when she got home from school.
However, one day we were in CVS to buy another bottle of this Neutrogena Body Clear Scrub, but they were out of it. She HAD to have something, so we substituted CVS's own brand of this body-clear scrub. And, boy-oh-boy, did she find a new treasure! For whatever reason, the CVS-brand cleared her skin all-the-way in no time and she's been using it ever since-- some three years now... and only has to shower once-a-day now as well.
If CVS is ever out of their own brand, we have to get something, so have substituted with the Neutrogena again... but it never works for her as well as the CVS-brand. I've learned my lesson, and now stock-up on the CVS-brand, especially when they have it on-sale.
(As an aside, she also suffers from facial acne. We were ready to try the ProActive stuff, but a friend of mine suggested we first try the 'Beyond Belief' brand of acne products over at Sally's Beauty Supply. We did and, again, what a treasure! She uses all of the 'Beyond Belief ABH' products: Foaming Cleanser, Clay Mask, Toner, Spot Treatment, Oil-Free Moisturizer, Repair Treatment, Repair Serum, and Exfoliating Scrub. For the first time since she became a teenager, her skin is clear with only very rare break-outs... she's seventeen now and has been using this brand of products for two years).
