Facial wash, and an accutane question

hey i was wondering if somebody could reccommend a good facial wash for me. i need a natural one (no bp or anything) that is made specially for ultra-mega-hyper sensitive skin, which has been so graciously given to me by the oh so great miracle of accutane. i mean, if you so much as look at my skin you could make it turn red.

Secondly, its been about 3 months since i went off accutane, and i am starting to get a few small pimples again. is it too late to start one of those month-long maintenance things? ive heard you just use tazorac for a month to keep the acne away, is this true?

Cetaphil or Purpose for the face wash, both ultra gentle.

I took accutane also and my face was the same way. Right now I have found that Pro-Active is working better than anything I have ever tried as far as topical things go and my face is sensitive from accutane too. I wrote the story about blueberries you should read it before turning to other topicals and see where that might take you. My face was red after a few times of using Pro-Active but the sensitivity got better every time I washed. Kandie

so was it the blueberries that helped the most, or was it the proactive? my biggest problem besides the sensitivity is the redness, especially above my mouth.
