I've found sulphur to be somewhat effective for my acne. But all I've found so far is a facial mask by Origins. I like it, but would like to find an affordable sulphur cleanser as well, something I could use every day. Could anyone recommend one?

I used to use the AcneFree Therapeutic Sulfur Mask. It is $6 at Wal-Mart and surprisingly works very well.


I also used to use a sulfur/sulfacetamide prescription lotion. The names have changed over the years. They are not available in Europe anymore as far as I know, but you can still get them prescribed in the U.S.

I have found sulfur based products work well for me too. The best sulfur cleanser I have found so far is Grandpas Thylox Acne Soap with Sulfur. I get it on Amazon. I previously was using a prescription sodium sulfacetamide/sulfur cleanser but the Thylox stuff works better for me. All of them are rather drying for me and I can only tolerate use every other day.
