    i use Garnier Pure 3-in-1 Wash Scrub and Mask

    it is ok...

    i also use st ives once a week or just when i remember really... it's pretty good, i like it


    i don't know.. i've used everything.. simple, neutrogina, clearasil... i've never found anything i really like.. it all dries out my skin. i don't get acne but i get the odd spot and they just go away when they go away... it's just hormones.. none of this crap prevents/clears because it's not to do with how clean your face is.. it just depends on your oil production, pores, how easily they get clogged by dead skin etc. (which you can't help)

    though look for salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide etc. in your face wash because this does help, but don't expect miracles.. also you can get benzoyl peroxide gel (in 2.5%, 5% and 10%) and this also kind of helps but not really... but i guess it's quite good.

    the one thing i found that DOES really help is honey and cinnamon (just put some honey in a bowl and mix some cinnamon in) face mask... leave it on for about 10 mins (and you can have a cheeky lick too because it's delish) then wash off with water.. possibly face wash too depends how easily it comes off.. i found this does actually clear my skin, keeps it hydrated too as in it doesn't dry it out.. it's a lot of faff though so i usually don't bother.



    if you honestly have acne problem the best option is to go to your doctor and ask if he can get you onto some drugs.. also the pill can clear you up too because it affects your hormones, but it can also make it worse.

    Lush do really good natural face washes which I really like. I use one called herbalism which comes in a tub and it is crumbly and green, and you add a few drops of water to make it into like a paste which gives a nice gentle scrub. I would highly recommend it!

    soap dries out your skin a lot btw it's not good for your face.. you should use face wash at least. not soap..

    I only use 2 face wash. It's either Neutrogena or Garnier. Try them. You'll feel your skin so smooth.

    Ditto this! I like Angels on Bare Skin best, they're really good at sorting out spotty skin.

    Using harsh products like a lot of those marketed for acne, oily skin etc. is so bad for your skin, they're full of chemicals that are just not good news.
