You may want to try "Cetaphil" is a non foamy gel so it is gentle on your skin.. it is not drying.. hence no irritation to the skin..

You can find them at Mustaffa centre..

You can look this product up on the webpages....

Alternatively you can use the Paula's choice skin balancing cleansers they are also non foamy somewhat the same to "cetaphil"...with a budget like yours go for cetaphil and you won't regret.

Cheers and good luck with that skin of yours:)
We'll get along fine as soon as you realize I'm Good.

I have a bout of pretty bad breakouts lately. Used a lot of products but found 1 that is effective.

It's call "BLACKMORES DEEP FACIAL CLEANSING". It contains tea tree and is also anti bacterial.

Best anti acne cleanser I have tried so far. It cost under $20 and is available from Guardian Pharmacy although not every branch stock them. You gotta ask them to bring in for you if you can't find it.

I bought mine from Guardian Pharmacy in Ikea. I am also taking BLACKMORES Skin Supplements to combat acne.

So far so good.

Acne is a prob to be tackled at the roots and not by chemicals as the very cause of acne is believed to be the body signal of telling you to get rid of the toxins in the body. Chemicals are some of them! Go for long term solution rather than quick fixes for they will invariably cause more problem in the future.

Mind you this info is not mine, I read it somewhere and we should be more informed before making a decision.

Read this open internet info:

San Jose Mercury News
December 12, 2005

Several cosmetics and personal care products popular with teenagers contain ingredients linked to breast cancer and other serious health problems, according to Washington-based Environmental Working Group's recent study of beauty products.

In light of "Skin Deep," the brand-by-brand safety guide with information on more than 14,000 products, environmental health advocate group Breast Cancer Fund is asking for governmental intervention and hopes to raise public awareness about these potential harms.

"We don't believe that consumers should have to stop using cosmetic products," Breast Cancer Fund spokesman Kevin Donegan said. "We just believe consumers should have access to safer products."

Breast Cancer Fund, a founder of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, also asks for producer responsibility, pointing the finger at Sally Hansen, Procter and Gamble's Cover Girl and Neutrogena, none of which were immediately available for comment.

Breast Cancer Fund and "Skin Deep" named several toxic chemicals that should be avoided.

To find out about the Skin Deep projects and to test you products, go to:

Type in your product interest and be surprised!

Of course there are alternatives. Watch out for more.

Try DIY.

I read somewhere on a website:
When a pimple burst, apply lemon juice on the area, leave it for ten mins and rinse. This will prevent scar. Lemon juice can be use to lighten scar too. Cumcumber juice can be applied on the face over night to make acene scar less visible
