    I'm looking for a good everyday face wash, i have acne that's not major but still enough to be annoying! Any recommendations for a good exfoliating face wash?

    St Ives and Clearasil both have some really good scrubs, if you want something cleansing, Neutrogena have a good wash/mask.

    I've heard great things about Neutrogena anti acne products, but how does the brand compare to Clearasil, Simple etc products?

    Speaking from experience of having acne or?

    Also, how does that Oxy compare to the older ones, such as :

    Does anyone know how good Simple is? It's the one I've been using for years and it's been good for me I just like the idea of it not having any unnecessary chemicals (if that's true and not just for marketing!)

    I use this face wash every morning and evening (just dab some on a cotton wool pad and then rub it over you face.)

    And then I use this a couple of times a week.

    I don't have acne but I get the occasional spots and it's definitely quick at clearing them up and preventing more coming as much.

    Sorry, I don't know about the old stuff.

    St Ives Apricot Scrub is a fantastic exfoliator, and the best cleanser I've ever used is Ultrabland from Lush.

    I use simple cleanser and toner and it's great for me. Any clearasil product I've ever used makes my skin look like I've rubbed poison ivy on my face, my skin is just too sensitive to whatever chemical they put in it. However I don't have acne, so I don't know how effective it is for that.

    I know a good face-wash that's absolutely FREE.

    Oats. 100% oats.
    Grab a handful of oats and close your hand into a tight fist before running it under warm water. Take your fist away from the water then open it. Splash some water on the oats in your hand and spread them on your face. DO NOT put the oat juice down the drain. Use it on your face because IT'S ALL GOOD!
    Rinse the oats off your face with warm water and press a flannel on your face softly to dry it.

    Do that for a good few weeks every night and your face will be golden.

    Yeah agreed! Clearasil, Neutrogena etc make my face feel like I've scrubbed tooo many layers off!

    Have you tried any other face washes that are gentle on your skin?

    The only other one I've really used is a sanctuary spa cleanser - one of the ones you rub on dry skin and just take off with a cotton wool pad. That's really gentle and nice, but I think they're fairly expensive (my mum occasionally gets stuff like that free).

    I second both of these.
    LUSH stuff is good in general - Herbalism and Dark Angels are scrubs that I've found to be pretty good on spot-prone skin. I also use Bohemian (a lemon soap) once a day, and use Vanishing Cream moisturiser.
    But I do just love LUSH :love:



    Slightly cheaper, I really like this range from Simple. It's good for sensitive skin and actually works!

    I use an organic surge face wash (which I think you can buy from John lewis?) or a bar of l'occitaine shea butter soap. Or just dove soap
    clearasil/neutrogena is way too harsh for my skin, I've found gentle face washes keep my skin calm but don't get rid of spots, but neither does clearasil
