Question whats soap is best? dove,pears,simple,baby soap.....?????

at the end of the day mild soap is meant to be the best for acne........

I think face washes are a waste of money personally, always seem to make acne worse.

I always find myself going back to using pears soap, as its %100 percent natural and alledgedly is meant to be non comadgenic (think i spelt that right )

I find a lot of soaps help to clear my skin at frst, but then make it worse. I especially found that with dove sensitve soap bar, I thought it was miracle soap at first.......... but after using it for nearly a week it made me burst into spots big time Anyhows I think I will stick to pears soap at least I know where I stand with that soap, any one else in here use pears soap at all?

regards beatboxkid

I absolutely love dove soap for my face. I am sure that the pears and other soaps are good too. I really think that all those medicated cleansers are way too harsh. I like the gentleness of dove.

Avene, extremely suitable for oily-blemish skin. I had a very sensitive skin and this cleanser works miracle

Re: whats soap is best? dove,pears,simple,baby soap.....?????

well i have tried many sops but none suited my skin. so me made it really dry but some made it really oily... some even made me break out like a monster. but after neglecting Dove sops forever, i decided to give it a try. i got myself a pink Dove soap and i have to admit that it is the best sop i have ever washed my face with. its been 3 months and im still using Dove. i also tried the White one but i like pink better for no apparent reasons.
i would definately suggest anyone whos looking for a good soap to give it a try. you might notice drying of skin for a few washes but it needs time to adjust on your skin.

after using the soap, i was so much delighted by the brand that i now have got their Shampoo, conditioner and Body wash... and they are all really really Good.

afterall, i have now understood that it isnt for ladies only.

Dove and Aveeno (but I like Dove better as it doesn't make my face as dry).

Dave, i dont know if they work same for everyone but Dove has amazingly reduced my red spots caused by acne.

Aspirin mask and regular use of dove helped me alot.

Re: whats soap is best? dove,pears,simple,baby soap.....?????

I've been using Dove for years, and all this time I thought I was the only one putting bar soap on my face! It has never disappointed me. Sometimes I stray and tried stuff with benzoyl peroxide or even cetaphil and Dove beats them both. Dove seems to clean my skin so well that redness does seem to go away and when I don't use it I do tend to breakout more. I use the sensitive skin one.

However, they recently came out with a face wash I want to try. It's actually a lot more expensive and I'm thinking that if it aint broke don't fix it.

I use Dial gold bar soap. It can be drying, but it works better for me than any other face wash or bar soap.

Youre Welocme.
Well i have been using Dove for quite a long time now. i usually wash twice a day but sometimes thrice.

i doesnt dry my skin at all..... but Sometimes it does. but thats very rare and it could be because of other reasons also, i just apply pure Aloe Vera gel if i notice drying.

when i started Dove i had serious acne but now i dont. i do get occasional pimples but trust me, when i wash my faces with dove, they disappear with in 12 hours.

my acne's cure could have been something els like my improved diet, alot of water etc, but i am sure Dove has, if not the biggest, yet a noticeable contribution.

hope that helps.

I love those dove cleanding cloths. It is gentle and moisturizing like the bar, but its adds a little exfoliation as well which everyone needs.
