Hm....so no soap or like the bar stuff? im not sure what the cleanser stuff is but ill look it up. im just trying to find basic and simple remedies or things that can make my acne go down a bit even if it doesnt go all the way. im not saying that your products are bad or anything(because i really wanna try them haha) but im not as fortunate as other people to buy things as freely as other people can:( as u know, the economy is pretty bad and my family is hanging on, but any support or ideas would be great! thank you mr. dan!

I had severe acne from age 10 all the way through high school. I have rather oily yet sensitive skin. I absolutely cannot use 2.5% benzoyl peroxide because it dries my face to the point where moisturizer cannot repair it.
As you can see from my icon my skin is relatively clear now. I still get the occasional spot but who here doesn't, honestly? If you want to see how red, irritated, and swollen my face looked before, look at my post in the intro topic from my profile. Be warned though.
I tried everything from Proactiv to Arbonne and spent major $$$ yet the only thing that worked for me was plain basic Ivory soap. Any spots I do get, I use pure Tea Tree Oil which works so amazingly.
When using the soap, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water, rinse, re-lather and then splash the soapy warm-hot-water mixture on your face. You will actually feel your skin getting that clean feeling. Rub your face vigorously and use your fingertips to massage around the hairline and jawline, two places that are easy-to-miss trouble spots. Once you're through, rinse your face with cold water (this part is essential--the cool water rinses the soap clean and also tightens your pores and brightens your skin) and pat dry with a clean towel.
Rinse it whenever, after sports or work or whenever your face feels unclean.
That's what I do. It actually works. Don't diss it til you try it.

yes is absolutely true. as a teenager i started to get a lot of pimples and one day i heard on the news that it was discovered that the people with oily skin who get acne alot should wash their rface with ivory soap and really cold water . so i tried it and when i tried it i started to see major improvement now as i write i can guaranteed anyone that ivory soap is the best remedy for pimples, an you have to wash your face as many times as you think is possible, when you touch your face if you see that your face is oily it means is time to wash it, but remember with cold water, a week late you will see a difference, i recommended this to two of my co-workers and you have no 9idea how greatful they are, give it a try you wont regret it, o yeah and if you use makeup try to avoid it as much as possible

I had severe acne from age 10 all the way through high school. I have rather oily yet sensitive skin.
This is similar to my experience with regard to all the other "cleanser" and "body wash" products. They all would leave my skin oily, broken out, and not very clean-feeling. I started using Ivory bar soap with a washcloth after trying the regimen with other cleansers, and it has made a world of difference.
The difference of opinion might have to do with the section of text I bolded up in that quote. My skin is naturally very oily -- a major annoyance my whole life -- and the soap (which I use on my face, too) helps dry it out to more of a normal state.
