I don't talk about health and beauty products super often because to be honest, I stick to a pretty regular routine. But I have to share my newest face wash find with you all because it has totally transformed my skin and acne issues. Even better, it's under $10. 

Like most, I had acne as a teenager and into my college years. It wasn't awful, but I definitely signed onto Proactiv and used my Clarisonic religiously. Once I left college and had a more healthy lifestyle (aka not drinking and going out 4 nights a week), my skin mostly cleared up, with a few breakouts here and there. 

But in the past year or so, I have dealt with some pretty bad cystic acne on my neck. If you've never had it - you're lucky. It's these deep, cystic like lumps that just come out of nowhere and hang out on your neck for weeks at a time. They get red, they kind of itch - basically it's awful. My dermatologist gave me some medication to clear it up and it did for a little bit, but also left my skin super dry. My skin cleared up for about 2 months - it looked amazing in August - but come September and October, it was back to it's old ways and I was at a loss for several months.

Y'all, this face wash has kind of changed my life. I picked it up randomly while at Trader Joe's and after using it for about 3 weeks, my acne has almost entirely cleared up. I've gotten maybe one tiny, tiny flare up since, but it's not a big deal. My skin feels brighter, more even, and more tight (in a good way). I was worried it would make my face feel oily, but it doesn't at all. It lathers up and leaves my skin feeling super clean and healthy. I really can't say enough good things! Have y'all tried anything with similar results you love?

Now I'm on the lookout for a cream that can diminish my acne scares around my neck and jawline... any suggestions?

I always love finding new face washes to test out and all of TJ's tee tree oil products smell so good! For the cream, maybe look into Dermalogicia? Their products work wonders for me!

I love the smell too! My roommate thinks it's kind of weird but it reminds me of the spa. I will definitely look into Dermalogica! Thank you for the suggestion! xo
