Its been over 3 months now and I previously stated before that I was content with my results, but not satisfied. Recently, Ive been thinking why my acne has'nt cleared up to the extent that I wanted it to. So I decided to switch my cleanser and moisterizer:

My Old Setup for the past 3 months:

Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser

Cetaphil Moisterizer with SPF15

On the Spot

Now, with that setup during the 3 months, I experienced new breakouts (about 2-3 fresh pimples) about every 3-4 days. This past week, Ive totally switched my setup to this:

Purpose Gentle Cleanser

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion with SPF15 and AHA

On the Spot

Im glad to say I have not experienced a new pimple this entire week, which has been a first. I think it obviously had to be on of the Cetaphils. So eliminating both was a godsend for me. I havent been experiencing very dry skin like the Cetaphil Cleanser did to me. Things have been going great. I hope this helps some of you guys out. Finally, I've incorporated Aloe Vera into my nightly regimine which definetly has helped to fade the red marks.

frank, I had the same problem too and I also switched from cetaphil cleanser to spectrol jel and from cetaphil moisturizer to neutrogena AHA SPF15.

So far only 2 new pimples (but they're so tiny that you can barey see it) over 1.5 weeks.

I personally don't like the cetaphil cleanser that much - the moisturizer should be okay though.

I think cetaphil cleanser is way too gentle and it doesn't clean your skin throughly enough.

Glad to know that I"m not the only one!!

When I used the Cetaphil Cleanser it would dry me really badly too. I would try to yawn and instantly, my entire face was white...it was some shit

Eeep.

I'm using cetaphil.. :/

It doesn't dry me out though.

And I rarely even moisturize, too.
