Safeguard Soap?

Recommended Posts

Is Safeguard bar soap good for washing my face if I have acne?

Thanks in advance!

Edit: Please also suggest some other soaps if you know any good ones.

I would probably not use safeguard on the face.... it is kind of a harsh soap and it's fragrance could make acne worse, not only that but I have read in more than one article that whatever is holding bar soaps together can clog up the pores really bad. I was hospitalized once and had nothing to use but bar soap and my face broke out.

Oh, thanks :o

Darn it, I've been using Safeguard.

Edit: Is it better to wash my face w/o soap then?

Uh-oh. Yeah I agree, safeguards's too harsh for your face.. it can dry it out and can probably exacerbate oil production. Flaky skin + oily skin = breakout. How about trying a non-soap alternative like Cetaphil?

I haven't heard of it before.

Have you used it before? If so, how well did it work?

And is it expensive?
