Soap vs Cleanser

Recommended Posts

My regime:

BP with clindamycin (morning)

retin A mirco (evening)

However i've been disappointed by the fact that although it helped clear up my skin a bit, i continued getting HUGE zips and a red face. I talked to my family physician (instead of the derm) and he told me to try Irish Spring Soap instead of a cleanser - apparently it has anti-bacterial stuff in it. I've been using it for 2 weeks now, and for the first time in half a year or so i haven't had any zips pop up on my face in this time period!!

Spectrojel doesn't even lather up when you rub it. Honestly, to me it doesn't even feel like it's working. Cetaphil aggravated/dried out my skin too much and the others i tried in the beginning were crap. Now i get no redness and no zits. Plus the red marks are slowly going away!!

For those struggling with BP, try irish spring soap(regular) before quitting or changing medications.

Has anyone else had success with this soap?
