So I'm contemplating getting Dr. Bronner's Soap. Has anyone experienced any new breakouts or problems with this soap?

My main concern is that it contains so many oils which I don't know if it's good or bad for acne prone skin.

no, but it dried my face out really, really bad. the flakiness looked worse than the acne. i use dr. bronner's on the rest of my body, though. that stuff smells great!

The oils shouldn't be a problem. They are saponified and they rinse clean, they don't feel oily or leave any residue on skin. The tea tree one made my skin very sensitive though -- I think it was a reaction to TTO. You should also dilute it before using on your face, and it's probably not good unless you're oily.

supposedly there's a dr. bronner's "baby soap" that's gentle & unscented...why don't you give that a try and move on to something stronger if you like it?

Thanks all!! I went to my local cvs and noticed they sell trial size bottles for like $2.50. I'm going to buy one and try it out before buying the larger bottles.

How much do u dilute?
