Re: Salicylic acid Could be BAD
I guess different things work for different people. I happen to use Neutrogena's Oil-Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser, which contains 2 percent Salicylic Acid, and it's by far my favorite cleanser. Sometimes I use the Multi-Vitamin Acne Treatment, also containing Salicylic Acid (1.5 percent), and I haven't noticed any additional breakouts. I use it because it seems to help with the redmarks. The downside is that it makes my face look red and blotchy.
