Marissa's Pick of the Week!

Ick! Acne! It never fails to surprise me. There are times when my skin is flawless and smooth as butter. In the summer, it just feels like butter was spread all over my face. My
favorite remedy? Acne Solutions Cleansing Bar for Face and Body (Clinique, $12.50). This is by far the best acne targeted soap I've used. It also comes in liquid form, but I'm partial to bars. They last longer, it costs less, and you get more product for your buck. Think of how much water is added to liquid soaps, yet they are more expensive. ??? I don't get it either.

Acne Solutions Cleansing Bar can be used on most problematic skin types due to it's mild salicylic acid formula. (If you are pregnant, please consult your doctor. Salicylic acid is known to cause birth defects and complications.) My skin literally squeaks after cleansing with this bar. After one wash I notice an improvement in my skin's condition. It's recommended that you either only use this bar once a day (I prefer night so my skin can regenerate at it's cleanest time.) Or every other day. If your skin is extremely oily (you can go through a pack of blotting sheets in a day) it's okay to use twice a day every day. No matter how often you use this acne bar, remember to always follow up with toner and most importantly, MOISTURIZER. Remember, oily skin that doesn't moisturize WILL produce more oil.
