    Salicylic Acid - Leave on or rinse off

    What would give me better results.... a 2% lotion of salacylic acid used on the face every morning and left on all day, or a 2% rinse off clenser, left in contact with the skin for 60 seconds, used twice a day.

    My gut feel is the leave on product would be better, due to longer contact time, but I see a lot of rinse off clensers with SA in them, and wonder if they might be better as I could use them twice a day as oposed to once a day (I use BP lotion at night, so cant use the leave on lotion then)


    (edited to add: my current clenser is Sapoderm. a bar soap containing 1% triclosan.... I know that will horify most of you, but i like it!)

    For a lotion i recommend this.
    Its called Wet and Wild Spot Treatment.
    Dont be fooled by the name.
    This is a great lotion for getting rid of acne and redmarks.
    It uses top of the line incredients.
    It uses 2% Salicylic Acid, Green Tea, Aloe, Nobilis Flower, Tee Tree Leaf Oil,
    Cucumber, Algae Extract, Licorice Root and Witch hazel.
    They sell this in Walgreens and Rite Aid.
    You leave it on.
