cleansers dont do anything. a would try a glycolic acid lotion instead works better from my exp.

This is true. Cleansers do not stay on the skin enough time basically rendering them useless. Just use a lotion if you want results.

Aqua Glycolic's web site says that their products are for all skin types. I haven't tried any of them, however. They have a cleanser, toner, and face cream. Neutrogena also makes a sunscreen with SPF 15 and 8% glycolic acid. I used that one for a while and it was pretty good for my skin; just made it a little oily. But I could handle it and it didn't burn my skin. I just ordered Alpha Hydrox's AHA Souffle with 12% glycolic acid; they have a 10% oil-free gel as well. And Reviva Labs (a natural skin care company) makes a 5% glycolic acid cream as well as a 10% one. They have cleansers and toners to go with them too. Maybe someone else has more suggestions. One thing-try to start out with a low percentage and work your way up to a higher one. And you should do a patch test on another area of skin to make sure you don't have a bad reaction.

I am not sure how glycolic and salicylic acids work with BP because I don't use BP. Maybe someone who is using BP could answer that for you. I would go slowly and introduce one product at a time. That would help with avoiding irritation. There are products out there that contain salicylic and glycolic acid together. Neutrogena makes a Anti-Wrinkle Anti-Blemish cleanser and scrub that have glycolic and salicylic acids in them. Neutrogena makes a Pore Refining Toner with both acids in it (I found it at Drugstore.com). Ulta.com has a lot of salicylic and glycolic acid products too. Just type in "glycolic and salicylic acid." Hey, I just found this on Drugstore.com. It's MD Forte Glycare Perfection Gel Acne Medication. It is on sale right now for $18.40 and it has glycolic and salicylic acid in it. I read both reviews on this and both users of the product liked it. The person in the second review says he/she uses it with BP as well. The first reviewer said the product could dry out your skin, so I'd be careful about this one. Maybe you could apply a light moisturizer (after the BP or the glycolic/salicylic stuff) like Cerave that won't cause breakouts and doesn't have any actives that might interact with your other products. Oh, and using glycolic acid can make your skin sensitive to the sun, so make sure you use a good sunscreen and be careful with your sun exposure. Good luck!
