seems to get rid of big red pimples but makes mild acne worse
on August 31, 2015
I recently discovered that the formula for nanocleanse has changed to glycolic acid instead of salicylic acid. I was upset when i recieved a different formula than shown on the nanocleanse website. I have been assured it is good to use, i have only used this product a couple of times, but so far so good, it makes my skin feel nice.
Edit one week after i started to use Nanocleanse. I have now developed a few more pimples and the old ones have not gone. The Nanocleanse people say i should stick with it for another week or two. I guess i am stuck, i may as well try one more week, but i am a little fed up with how lousy customer service seems to be and the product changing and no one knowing, and now this. I really wish i had the "old" formula, it seems to have gotten better reviews.
Edit after 2 weeks of use. I have noticed some change, i don't really know if it is agood sign or bad. A few of the small bumps on my forehead have gotten significantly bigger and redder than they were last week. Some of the smaller bumps have gotten even smaller though. I have started using BP on my forehead just at night to get these big ones under control.
Edit after 1 month of use. I stopped using the benzoyl peroxide on my forehead, as it cleared up my spots nicely. I have been using nanocleanse by itself 2x a day for about a week now. My skin is starting to break out again in those little bumps. Seems to me that the exfoliating properties of Nanocleanse irritates my skin. From research, i have discovered that over exfoliating is bad for the skin, so i am going to use cetaphil alone to wash as well as the BP again at night, and the Nanocleanse only once or twice a week. It seems to me, from reading ALL the reviews and my research and experiences, that nanocleanse works OK on the big red angry acne, but causes problems when dealing with more mild cases. Very disappointed, took a long time to work and caused more breakouts. I doubt i will re order(With the price being high, esp. with international shipping).
