Question What do you wash your face with?

Just curious because I'm using Neutrogena and thinking about switching over to Clinique's 3-2-1 just to try it out. I have some very crazy pore issues going on. Anyway, what do you wash your face with?

I alternate between Neutrogena Oily Skin Facial Bar & Mary Kay Time Wise cleanser.
I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

The Mary Kay 3-in-1 is good stuff.

I use a apricot scrub. St Ives I think.

Cetaphil, except I get the store brand. And I just use my hands. Nice and gentle. Doesn't do the job on mascara though.

RareMinerals "Renew and Reveal". It's a powder. About 1/4tsp in palm, add water, mix it to make lather. Doesnt dry my face out - yet, no longer do I get the oily T.

I use Clean and Clear Morning burst. I love the citrus-y smell and tingle it gives. I also use the clean and clear morning burst anti shine face lotion after as well. I have alot of issues with oily skin and this helps me out a ton.

I know some of them out there you gotta be careful for, cuz they will make you break out more!!!

I know this might be strange, but I just wash my face with water. I don't normally wear makeup and when I wash with water I don't have any problems, but when I wash with a face wash I sometimes get acne.
P90X : If you were able to look inside of your cells and see your "good" enzymes increasing, your energy-producing mitochondria multiplying, your cholesterol falling, your arteries clearing, your blood vessels becoming more efficient, your muscles strengthening, your bone-density improving, and all of the remarkable changes that this program triggers, it would be clear that the scale and calipers are just insufficient ways of measuring success.

Good old Cetaphil. Sometimes baking soda thrown into the mix to gently exfoliate.

* Garnier Nutritioniste gentle face wash gel -- I use this almost daily.

* St Ives Apricot Scrub - Once or twice a week to exfoliate and get that "fresh" look

* Olay Deep Cleansing wash creme - I use this once in a while when I think my skin needs some extra moisturizing

And I generally only use my fingers/hands when washing. I would never use a wash cloth or loofah on my face -- the skin is just too delicate.

I use Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser, then I use a non-alcohol toner for oily skin by Lush! This toner is great, all natural and no harsh chemicals! I then use Aveeno's skin friming moisterizer on my dry sections of my face only.

NutriBiotic Fresh Fruit Skin Cleanser. I like that it comes in a pump, so I use it in the shower. Other times, just water and a cloth.

I have two favorites that I can't be without. They are both by Burt's Bees. One is the Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream and the other is Peach and Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub. I love the way these two products make my skin look, and feel.

I use Neutrogena Oil free acne wash. Used this stuff for a long time. It helps with breakouts. I find if I switch to another product (example - Clearasil) I get worse breakouts. Neutrogena all the way!
