I use the Clearasil Daily face scrub with SA. I'm not too sure if it works but so far my face is clear (might be BP making me clear as well).

I'd say try one without SA otherwise irritation will occur as in my case.

Also don't take the word scrub literally as I did. I thought it mean that we're meant to scrub it deep into the skin. It hurt, my face was red for a few weeks with fading red lines from the little rocky things.

I had those. I tried just about every drugstore scrub out there and only made my face worse ... little RED bumps all over your face are much worse than little flesh-colored ones ...

You have to use a product that exfoliates your pores. It will not be a cleanser.

-- Continue to use a very mild cleanser. Stick with the Basis bar, or go with the Purpose or Cetaphil bar.

-- Treat the problem with something that actually affects it: salicylic acid, mandelic acid, or a topical retinoid.

-- Be patient.

I don't see why you are afraid of Green Cream ... Level 3 is one of the milder topical retinoids out there, and even Level 6 is pretty mellow.

Or what about Diacneal? It is even less irritating.

If you want to use SA, I suggest checking out the products on this site: Paula Begoun

If you want to try mandelic, there's a link in my signature.

ah i see, yea i just jump to conclusions alot whe it coems to my face lol lemme check out those SA products and think about teh green cream stuff.ijust dont want anyhting that will dry out my face you know, cuz all the moisturizers i've tried give me pimples badly and i've never had them before.i still havn't found one i can stick with.gergans lotion wasn';t breaking me out with pimples but i could tell it was clogging my pores so ima dry baby lotion.i use to always use it and never had and clogged pores or any sort of acne.so ima try usin that and see what happens.but yea i'll definitly check out those products any give some serious thought on green cream.thanks
