Okay so I've been dealing with stubborn pimples lately. I cleanse, tone, and moisturize every single day and never sleep with makeup still on my face, so I was a little confused as to why I kept getting pimples. I've been freaking out trying to get rid of them- I tried peroxide, isopropyl alcohol, and proactive... none worked. Considering I get a pretty good discount where I work, I decided to try Merle Norman's Clarifying Clay Mask.Just apply it to clean skin and keep it on for 5-10 minutes, then wipe off with a damp cloth. It can be used 2-3 times a week. It burned a little when I first used it, but all of my blemishes were dried up and gone by the next morning (I applied it at night). It has Kaolin Clay in it which is supposed to draw out impurities and clear up the skin. I seriously recommend this product if you're having breakouts! It's is $20 dollars regular price which is pretty reasonable considering it will last a long time. *Be sure to moisturize afterwards otherwise your skin will get too dry.
I've been using Cetaphil, and it is a great facial lotion for all skin types! I've been applying this after wiping off the mask and the two seem to pair well together!
