I have also been interested in organic skin care lines that are affordable. I wanted to use procudts that were as gentle and natural as possible, because harsh ceansers weren't working. I have mild persistant acne and I am currently taking Accutane.
I have used Alba Botanica Pinnapple Enzyme wash. I loved the scent and I believe it semi-worked to help with my breakouts, but it was more like a treatment once the breakouts already happened--it didnt stop the breakouts from happening. It also made my skin way too dry. On the positive side, it did give my face a nice litte glow, but I have found other ways to achieve this now. My experience with this cleanser stopped me from trying any of their other products, although I know a few poeple that enjoy them!
I have also tried a bunch of porducts from Burts Bees! Mainly the Soap Bark and Chamomile Cleansing Cream and the Sensitive Skin Moisterizer. The cleansing cream smelt nice (like orange tic-tacs), removed my makeup, and moisterized my dry skin, but it did not help prevent breakouts. The moisterizer was nice and light, but it did not moisterize my skin enough (it was still dry and flaky--no matter how many layers of lotion I used) and I think it might have agrivated my skin.
Another organic product I have used is the Avalon Organic VItamin C Renewal Cleansing Milk. This product smelt wonderful, and its creamy consistency moisterized my skn and deffinitly made it glow! I wouldnt use it just for helping breakouts, but just if your skin needs a little pick me up and is looking dull, I would use it a few times a week--but not as a normal cleanser.
My current routine is as natural as possible and is workng great so far!
I use Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser, then I use Dickinsons Pore Perfecting Toner (the yellow bottle) which I apply with a 100%, organic cotton, cotton pad. Then if i have a few dry spots Ill use Cetaphils moisterizing creme. These products gently cleanse my face and keep it clean, moisterized, and fight my small breakouts!
I hope I helped!
