I am wondering if anyone has used Lava soap in their regiments, or might recommend it? Lava soap contains pumice (Aka frothy bits o' lava) and is definitely abrasive, which doesn't seem to be recommended by many acne.org people.

I acquired some at a very low price, and have been pondering trying it. I am 23 with moderate to severe acne, and haven't found anything that works yet (Beyond a few brief months of Proactive)

I wouldn't. Not only is the soap drying, but the bits of pumice would be too harsh and jagged. They could cause micro-tears in your skin, which are ideal entry points for bacteria.

Stick with gentle cleansers, and if you need to exfoliate, find something that has smooth beads in it.
