Natural Acne Solutions Purifying Gel Cleanser
I made the switch from Neutrogena/St. Ives to ProActiv to Burt's Bees recently. Although ProActiv did help and work fairly quickly, it felt very chemical-y and dried my oily skin out a little too much. It was hard switching to this since it is true that you break out a little once you stop using ProActiv. The first thing I noticed was that it came out very liquid but once you rub it in your face you can feel it lather very well and sometimes I still mix it in with my St. Ives scrub. .When I wash it off, my skin is already soooo smooth and great. It took a few days for my skin to get used to it and I've noticed my acne go down a little. My scars are still there but I can always cover that with makeup. I love the fact that it is so natural. The 1% salicylic acid scared me a little bit.. I was going to choose between this or Clearasil.. most products have like 2%. I'm so glad I made the switch though and I can't wait for my skin to fully clear up from this.

I have been battling acne on my chin for 12 years. I've tried everything from over the counter washes--very expensive ones from department stores and Sephora--to prescription washes and medications, to steaming, to dramatic diet changes and fasting. Nothing has worked as quickly and nicely as this wash! Actually, nothing else worked in general!! I'm so surprised at how quickly this wash has worked and how gentle it is. My husband is completely impressed with how fast it has changed the quality of my skin and how nicely it has COMPLETELY cleared up my blemishes. I'm still in shock...and kind of mad at myself...for not trying this stuff sooner! I'm so thankful for Burts bees...love every single one of their products! :)

Best Acne Cleanser I've Tried
I suffer from adult acne, and I've had major (painful) breakouts since I stopped using the pill. The products I've used haven't helped clear away acne, and most dry my skin out. Since I started using this acne cleanser, I've had very few pimples, no major breakouts, and my skin is very soft (not dry and flaky). I follow this up with the tomato toner and tea tree oil spot stick. I also sometimes slice raw tomatoes and rub the juice on my face - try it! Thanks!

My Daily Face Wash
I love this stuff. I use it everyday, morning and night, and couldn't go a day without it. It's gentle, effective, and natural -- which is of course a plus! What really pleasantly surprised me about this product (as well as most Burt's Bees products I use) is just how long one bottle of this lasts! As I said, I use it twice a day and I'm still using the same bottle I bought at least two months ago! The small size of most of these products originally deterred me from becoming a Burt's Bees fanatic, but it lasts just as long, or maybe even longer, than most other acne and skin products twice the size! I highly recommend this.
