Also, you must moisturize it does not make the oil worse it helps your skin restore moisture and then it will pump out less oil!
Hey i just want to thankyou for suggesting Dove soap for sensitive skin as it's the best cleanser i have used in 10years, i have tried everything and each product has eventually over dried my skin and made it more greasy in the long run even sensitive skin products.
I have used this soap now for 10 days and i love it, my skin doesn't feel tight afterwards although it feels clean and moisturized and i it hasn't broken me out yipe.
I have even stopped using B.P and i have noticed that my spots seem to heal up in a few days now rather than a week or so.
I hope that this dove continues to work because it's a big relief to finally find something that's good for my skin after 10 years.
