If a couple SA products made me break out...

I've tried a few SA cleansers in the past (Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash, some Clean & Clear thing, and one more I'm forgetting) and all three made me break out a day or two later and have horrible, oily, broken out skin for like weeks until I could fix it with other stuff.

For some reason I decided to buy the Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser, which is also a 2.0% SA wash. It's been about a week and I haven't had any reaction to it or breakouts, and my skin actually looks a bit clearer.

Does that mean it wasn't the SA that caused my skin to react, but maybe other ingredients in those products I've tried in the past? Could it then be safe to use other SA-type cleansers/toners/whatever?
