Pro-activ. I had a MAJOR pimple problem many years ago similar to your scenario. Pro activ solved it within 2 months. Forever. After four minths, stopped using pro activ n went normal biore. No more pimple problem forever. Here is my theory... for myself... I had an oil imbalance for my face. Pro activ solved this. Get pro activ at your local mall booth or online. Also... on a side note, for short term, sleep earlier. Ur face heats up as it gets later in the nighrrime. But after pro activ, should solve this too. Good luck.

Give benzoyl peroxide a shot. Medicated face wash that worked for me.

I would stay away from proactive, such a marketing gimick. The main active ingredient in it is benzoyl peroxide but charges a premium price

edit: You can get face wash with this stuff for under $10.

so many mixed reviews on certain products , for example pro-activ and shiseido

so how well does Cetaphil rank in terms of these products

Pro-activ worked, and this is based on my own experience.

I had a bad case of pimples for about.... I would say a year.

You can buy them at kiosks at malls, so phone up the malls first to make sure the kiosks are still there.

Or, order online.

I only tried Biore AFTER 4 months (around there) of Pro Activ usage.

And, I've been using Biore ever since, but I want to clarify that Pro Activ was the SOLUTION, and Biore (the much cheaper ongoing daily use cleanser) is after Pro Activ.

Haven't tried Clarins Men. Sleeping early for myself play a big factor but I have friends who have the most fcked up sleep schedules & work graveyards. They rarely get acne, so it really depends on each individual. You should give it a try though and see if it helps.

Also if you want to try products buy it from The Bay! They have 30day return policy, if the product doesn't work you can bring it back and tell them its not for you.
(I bought the whole Shiseido line around $150-200, used it for 2-3weeks and returned it all and just explained my skin had a bad reaction)

I believe Sephora has a similar return policy, you should ask them about that! Could save you a bunch of $$

It's because everyones skin is different.

I had such an extreme case of acne in my early teens that I used everything.

Oxyclean
Alcohol Wipes
Clearasil
Pro-Active
Acne-Free

And none of them worked. You'd see slight improvement in the first week then it'd revert back to crap..

Thus Acutane (experimentation stage) actually worked for me.
I did get some of the side affects but nothing major. (Really dry skin on the corners of my mouth.. To the point where they'd just crack and bleed thus making me use a antibio. cream supplied by my dermatologist)

I also find Spectro face wash quite good as well when I think cetaphil doesnt cut it. Also sold at superstore for 4 different skin types. About $12 for a bottle.
I find Cetaphil quite mild compared to it.

i've been using cetaphil for 2 days full now and my face feels much smoother now. I've also noticed that the scars from the big pimples I popped are starting to heal too, maybe Cetaphil allows moisture into the skin healing the scars

Good to hear that something is working.

I know how it feels with a ton of pimples, and for me personally, it does not feel good at all.... (emotionally, not physically... though sometimes... it does hurt physically on the face).
