    People while on accutane usually use cetaphil wash with moisturizer. I found that cetaphil was causing blackheads for myself so I just started using dove soap. For the moisturizer, I use Oil of Olay Total Effects (Fragrance free). It has been working nicely. I am on month 3 (just started) and all my cystic acne are gone. I am working on the smaller ones now ... in due time they will all be gone!

    I would say a week into my 2nd month, I started to watch all of my cystic acne on my forehead just disappear. Even right now the scars are almost non-apparent. Just make sure you don't use anything that is for "acne". Typically from my experience, it just made me worse. So if that oil free cream cleanser works, use it. Just make sure you moisturize because that will help with the scars and redness in my opinion, thru my results. Good luck, I am sure it will help.
