I used the Purpose gentle cleanser. I tried lightly rubbing the calamine lotion in after applying it and in the morning it came off much easier.

UPDATE :

Okay, if anyone wanted an update here is one smile.gif

It's been about...less than a month, I'd say 2-3 weeks. I know, I should have kept count (my signature is pretty close to the date I believe).

No acne ! I know, I was kinda scared that it would come back, but in the powerful name of Jesus it hasn't and it won't! Right now, I only have 1 kinda inflammed pimple on my cheek, it's like the only one that hasn't wanted to go away completely, but with the calamine lotion it's going down every day. As for the acne marks, they are lighter and my skin's texture is improving so much; I know that that may sound stupid (the skin's texture part...) but that really makes you look like 10x better, specially because the makeup looks SO much more better and even. I'm still going 100% with the regimen, except that now when I get home from school I take off makeup (raw soap) and then tone w/ ACV (Raw/Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar) let it dry, then put on calamine lotion either as a spot treatment or all over the face for prevention. Then at night, I put on ACV, let it dry, and moisturize w/ emu oil, let it sink in, spot treat any pimple w/ calamine lotion.

Hope I've been of help, I honestly urge you to try this regimen, it gave me back my happiness.

I was just about to post on this thread again about ACV. It works amazingly! I've been using 50/50 ACV/Water as a toner twice a day, and in about a week I've seen the most improvement I've ever had. It has reduced the size of my pores, made my face less oily, made the redness disappear from my cheeks, stopped about 90% of new breakouts (including all cysts), and lightened my PIH. Using this along with calamine lotion has worked better than anything I've ever used, including BP, and without excessive dryness. I may try emu oil once my Complex 15 runs out, but that is working very good as well.

aww, that's great! I remember trying ACV a few months back, it never really did much for me, this time around I tried a diff brand (still organic and raw) and it's working much better. & yeah, the calamine lotion is amazing as well. I'm so glad (: Are you trying the oatmeal?
