Quoting Brayden Todd's Mommy:" I have not tried that I dont think.. I am using Acne Solutions from Clinque right now.. been using ... [snip!] ... now.. been using it a few months along with Acne Solutions make up from the same line.. (When I wear make up) still nothing "
Sometimes when the acne is really bad its because of the bacteria that are on the acne.... we give facials to people with acne problems and recommend this line of home care treatments to them and it really helps. I would try this out and see if it works for you. Bar soap will leave residue on the skin and clog pores up more (that's what we are taught). Also, if you decided to mix and match acne washes and lotions and such from over the counter they can react against each other and do more harm than good.
Try out the dermalogica acne kit to see if it helps you. I bet you will see a big difference.
