Skinmedica Face Wash?

08 September 2013 - 09:37 AM

Currently I've been using Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser but I'm still getting breakouts and whiteheads. My mom suggestd me to try Skinmedica purifying foam wash which has 2% salicylic acid with many other inactive ingredients including willow extract, witch hazel, sage extract, and tree oil. Also, its been expired since july 2011 which is my biggest concern -_- has anyone used this product before and is it safe to still use even if its been expired gor two years? Its still pretty much full.

My Regimen As Of Now.

22 July 2013 - 03:51 PM

Currently I'm using


Noxzema face wash (only use once a week since it drys and irritates my skin with all my other topicals)

Ery-tab EC 500 MG pills (twice a day)

Clindamycin 1% topical (twice a day)

Benzoyl Peroxide 5% topical gel (twice a day)

Tazorac 1% gel (twice a day)

Moisturizer (twice a day)


I'm still getting a lot of breakouts and white heads (probably because I'm not using the face wash frequent enough since my face becomes very dry)


What should I change up to try to make everything work with the face wash without overdrying/irritating my skin?


I just watched the acne.org regimen and should I follow that?


I still have a lot of scars I need to get rid of (what I'm using the tazorac for).


Also, should I really wait 5-15 minutes after I apply each medicine because I just apply each medicine right after one another.


Any tips would be great.

What Should I Do?

Back in October or November my dermatologist put me on BP 8%.. I was recently on 4%

However, she gave me small samples of 8% to try out first to see how it goes out and I still have the prescription bottle of 4%.

Well I'm running on my last 8% sample and I don't have another appointment until March.

Should I finish up the 8% and then go to the 4% or try to buy a BP 8% from CVS?

Edit; I only use BP for the morning.
