It's a moisturiser with Salicylic Acid in it... i only use it on my shoulders... SA is no good on my face.

Get it for about £3.50 a bottle from Blushing Buyer

Well that's prolly not a good idea usin a SA moisturiser... try Cyclax Aloe Vera Moisturiser... if not then have a look for Urban Rites Face Relief or order it from their website.

If mine was that bad mate i'd get on Accutane. Body acne is hard and expensive to treat with topicals, cystic is even worse... an you've got both.

hi AM seeing my doctor this week I'll ask about Accutane. In the meantime would you recomend a good body soap or wash I can use on my back and chest acne, cause it's driving me potty at the mo.

Is this Carleys's recommended? I would appreciate any advice or tips for my body mate. Thanks a lot

Superdrug makes a body wash for acne. I can't remember the name and whether it contained salicylic acid or bp. Most likely it was salicylic acid. Neutrogena makes one too but I haven't heard good things about neutrogena washes.

There's also oxy in the shower.

I haven't tried any of these however so I can't give an opinion on them..

I was thinking... (this might sound dumb) but if you want a salicylic acid body wash for cheap, would it be possible to use Herbal essences anti-dandruff shampoo- it contains salicylic acid.

ive been using a mix of SA and BP on my back recently. Ive used Clearasil complete 3 in 1 and then panoxyl wash 10% BP in the morning and then just the clearasil in the evening. ive only been doing this for just over a week so my results might be coincidental, but, my acne has improved a bit.

I know a lot of people say that clearasil sucks but it seems to be working. A lot of people also say that panoxyl is crap but i think they are referring to the BP cream, this wash seems to be quite good.
