Hi.. I'm a new member not sure how this is suppose to work so here goes.. I've just stumbled on this site read up on some threads and found it to be very helpful so i signed up.. And in a couple of threads i found some are using Acnease which is what i am currently using to treat my acne which is working excellent!!! But it seems like when i use my cleaser"Cauadlie" I get breakouts again stop for a couple of days and wash my face with plain water and it goes away .. I mean it's great and all that just washing it with water will keep my face clear with the help of the pills but on days when i wear make-up i'll have to use a cleanser so on that note would anyone be able to recommend a great cleanser that would not be harsh on my skin and will remove my make-up ...

I would recommend PSF Green Tea Facial Cleanser. It is really gentle and suitable for sensitive skin. It also rinses very clean. Do a search you probably can find some past reviews. I hope this helps. Welcome by the way wave

Hi and welcome to the wonderful world of splurging!!! Laughing

I would highly recommend Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash. It's actually a misnomer, because it doesn't really foam (unless you use ALOT) but it works miracles! It takes my makeup off really well with only one quick wash (and trust me, I wear alot of makeup!) It is very very gentle, and actually has helped clear my skin a little, instead of making it break out. It's a little on the expensive side, $18, but you get 8oz, so it last for at least 2-3 months!

Once again, welcome! wave

i like La Prairie's foaming cleanser. although it can remove makeup/sunscreen on it's own, i prefer to double cleanse with either a milk cleanser or an oil cleanser.

milk cleanser recommendation - sisley/phytomer/darphin (in this order)

oil cleanser - depends on your skin. the raves are for shu urema, ipsa, fancl, dhc, KP and babor. ( there may be more but i keep reading about these brands) i've tried all of the above except for babor and they did not aggravate my skin.

Hi CleanserFaN and welcome!

I would certainly try to pinpoint what ingredient in your cleanser is interacting with the Acnease to cause your breakouts. I am not sure what Caudalie cleanser you're using and I don't have much experience with the Caudalie line so I can't tell you exactly.

To remove makeup, the only thing I use is a cleansing oil (I use Garden of Wisdom's and DHC). Of course, my skin reacts well to these. If your skin is more sensitive you can also try using a carrier oil and use the traditional oil cleansing method followed by another cleanser to remove residue.

HTH, Kristen

Hi cleanserfan and welcome!Smile

If washing your face in water doesn't break you out, why use anything else? I use water and an old microdermabrasion cloth to clean my face AM and PM and I sometimes trowel the slap on! If I have a lot of grease based makeup on like kohl liner or real lipstick (as opposed to lipfinity), then I use a bit of olive oil. If you are oily then jojoba is good as well. And yes, I know. You have acne. doesn't mean you can't use oils! In fact if you search for OCM (oil cleansing method) or scan hte thread in hte library, you will find a lot of people with acne love it. And it's a lot cheaper than some cleansers!

This is great input i will definately do some more research on the ingredients and check out the cleanser recommendations.. As for the Caudalie cleanser i was using.. it was the self foaming cleanser .. And i have Combination /sensitive skin.. dry cheeks oily t-zone with some acne on my forehead which is slowly going away thanks to acnease and i use to get cyst but now there completely gone after taking the pills .. but now during this time my face is really dry around my cheeks a little on the bottom of my nose .. maybe it's cause i'm getting older.. i don't know but it seems my skin's getting drier now n' days .. So if ya'all know of any great mosturizers please do tell Very Happy


But for rite now i'll list what i'm currently using so ya'all can have a better idea...

AM-PM : currently washes face with water

AM-Aveda Tourmaline charge oil free spf15 moisturizer

PM-Aveda hydrating moisturizer

origins Never A Dull Moment : ok.. leaves my skin a little red still looking for my hg ..

Welcome CleanserFan! I would try the Bioelements Decongestant Cleanser. I was constantly having break-outs, and this product REALLY helped my skin reach a turning point. I have been using it since October, sometimes w/a facial brush, sometimes with a microfiber washcloth, and have a seen a HUGE improvement. It seems pretty gentle, but gets off all the make-up. Good luck! HTH

Im using Dermalogica Special cleansing gel which i love, its great and doesnt irritate my slightly reactive skin though may be too dryin for some (im normal/combo), it does take make up off aswell but i always use the precleanse before which is an oil and is really gentle and gets rid of all my makeup before using my cleanser.
