i know ya'll's gon call me bat sh!t crazy, but i've had good results til now with the Clinique Step 2. i even use the #3 formula during summer.
else than that, i use the ClarinsMen Active Face Wash, Lab Series Power Wash (old formula, with fruit acids), Kiehl's Facial Fuel Scrub.... and well, the good ol' Aspirin mask every now and then.
i really just got virtually blemish free skin, with about 5-7 tiny pimples in hidden spots per years, so, nothing for me to freak out about. my only problem is my nose cause it's blackhead central. ugh. even the girls who gave me facials were like "whoa, that's a whole lotta blackheads."
maybe that's the tradeoff. blackheads on nose, blemish free everywhere else.
