I have tried (what seems to be) EVERYTHING!!! I really didn't like ProActive...i felt it didn't do anything for me...plus it bleached all my towels and my bedding!
I use Retin-A for spot treatment and wash with Cetaphil. (I want to try something different as I feel that the Cetaphil isn't working anymore.)
I also use MAC mineral makeup....
Now to my question--HAS ANYONE USED KIEHL'S? I am looking at these products in particular:
Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser | Kiehl's
Blue Herbal Moisturizer | Kiehl's
I really don't care too much about cost right now (Within reason!!! Lol)
I am going to see a derm in Dec. to see what he can suggest and maybe see about getting a low does of Accutane to help.

I use Kiehl's and like it but I don't really have an acne problem. When I do though... I use the Kiehl's Blue spot treatment and it takes care of those little buggers. I switched over to kiehl's a little over a year ago and use the cleanser, toner, moisturizer and eye creme. It's moderately expensive and a little goes a long way.
Dermatologists always swear by cetaphil... fyi cause it doesn't strip your skin. But I don't feel that Kiehls strips it either.

Best of luck to you. Maybe talk to your dr. about Clyndoxyl (sp?), it's a pretty good prescription zit cream, but be careful, it will bleach your towels as well. lol Just a heads up!
I wouldn't take Accutane unless absolutely necessary, last resort kind of thing, I've heard it's pretty hard on your system...

I went to the dermatologist who gave me a lotion and put me on an antibiotic that I couldn't go in the sun with, and gave me the worse yeast infection. I said screw the Dr. I tried Proactive, and I broke out worse. Right now I'm using the nuetrogina acne wash and aveeno moisturizer.
I still break out occasionally on my chin. My diet really hasn't changed much through the years. I'd be interested in hearing more feedback about Kiehl's, since I really want to clear up my skin by the wedding!

Kiehl's is very good but right now, consider having the dermie look at your skin and assess your diet. Try to steer away from accutane, but request a benzoyl peroxide wash and cream for your skin. Accutane should be your last resort. Good luck..

Check out their web site Obagi Medical Products : Home Page.
I also alternate Kiehl's with Obagi too when I need a break from the exfoliation with the Obagi products. Hope this helps.
