OK so I want to try Nivea for Men Double Action Face Wash but I am skeptical because even though I have read alot of reviews from acne prone people on how great it works, I want to know if any of you guys have tried it and if it works by itself without any BP or SA (benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, respectively). Also, I have a list here of the ingredients from this and other Nivea products. Are any of these chemicals comedogenic?

Ingredients for Nivea's men products:

I ask because I have read reviews from these products from people who have evn tried Proactiv, and it seems that these work very well. Please share your experiences with these products, because Proactiv is very expensive and very time consuming.

Hi-

The only Nivea product I use is the Daily Protective Lotion with spf 15. I love it! Goes on smooth, leaves no residue (use a thin layer), and keeps my skin moist all day. Great stuff...
