Of all the facial cleansers that I tried only Cetaphil works and very consistent. Im almost 99% clear from my severe cystic acne that started last year of May. Avoid acne products. The only one that works for me is Mario Badescu drying lotion for mild acne. For cystic acne, you need to take anti biotics. You'll see the difference right away in 3 days. All these acne kits are just waste of money and would make your acne worse. Believe me, just stick to your regimen..Cleanser, Oil free moisturizer and Mask once a week. For mild acne, you could exfoliate by using Clinique 7 day scrub. IT'S AMAZING!!! I stopped buying salicylic based products, b/p, etc. Always change you pillow cases 2-3 times per week. Never touch your face nor ***** your pimples..For people w/ only 1-3 cystic acne. Try neosporin, apply only to affected area for 3 days then stop. For severe cystic acne, you need to take oral medication. Hope this would help, it works for me.

You are definatley right about all those acne kits. I tried proactiv and found that it didnt do much good. Although, The mask is very reliable and *maybe* the scrub. But thats about it. Right now I'm using that whole 3 step clinique line. But not having much luck with that one either. And I usually love clinique. Lotions are great and yes, the scrub is wonderful. not harsh at all. It doesnt make matters worse. I will say that The St.Ives scrub Invigorating one that allure rewarded, actually freaked my skin out. Which may have been the cause of a frequent flare up? It was to harsh. I have since learned to stick with the stuff for sensitive skin. It's really hard to find something to stick with when you have pimples because you'll try everything and anything in hopes that it will work. Its like a vicious cycle.
