I recommend this to everyone

By bellaamina

from TX

Comments about Dermadoctor Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser:

So there is a beauty group on social media that I am a part of. one of the most common question a member will ask is about acne products and what do other members recommend. every chance I get I recommend this face wash. I'm not sure if anyone has actually bought it because of my suggestions, but I do try. Please use the product exactly as the instructions are written. I think it provides the best results. I usually remove my makeup with micellar water first and then apply the wash on my dry face ans let it set for a few minutes before washing off. My acne problems have been hard to solve because I could never clear my face long enough to treat the hyperpigmentation...but this acne cleanser allows me to actually recover in between breakouts.

      I can't say enough good things about this product! I have dry skin with adult acne which got really bad these last few months and after trying a lot of different things this was the ONLY thing that worked. Their entire Ain't Misbehaving collection is simply AWESOME! I use this everyday, morning and night and noticed immediately improvement! It deep cleans my skin, leaving it soft, clean, minimizes pores, and dries out acne stoping further breakouts. Yes, their products are expensive but they do work! Trust me! I am now using several of their products specially the acne treatments and I am very happy with them, it feels like a trip to the dermatologist every time I use them! Thank you Dermadoctor!

      Ever since I have been gluten free, this face wash has been the best thing I could buy for myself. I use it every day, little goes a long way.
      But since I have bought two new bottles, the product smells different now, and not in a good way. And they switched to a smaller, glass bottle. Smaller size, for the same price!? I don't know about that! But I can't complain, I will keep buying this, because it deff has made a lot of improvement on my face.

      Comments about Dermadoctor Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser:

      I've been trying everything to help soothe my cystic acne, and I finally decided to try this after my Clear Start cleanser by Dermalogica stopped working for me. This stuff cleared up my skin completely in 3 days. Granted I have been using a honey and cinnamon mask with it once a day, but I think most of the progress came from this cleanser. I haven't had completely clear skin in about two years, and now my skin feels smooth and soft to the touch. My scarring from previous acne has also started to disappear. I've never actually written a review before, but this product deserves it. I like products that lather and make my skin feel super clean, and although this doesn't do that, it still works wonderfully to help control the acne. It doesn't remove makeup so I go in before I use this with a micellar water or makeup remover wipes. This doesn't dry your skin out at all. Actually, I was having a very bad bout of patchy dry skin when i started using this, and this is so moisturizing that it helped get my skin back to normal. I highly recommend this product.

        I have been suffering from acne for 20 years. I have tried so many different brands to combat my sensitive acne prone skin to no avail. This cleanser delivers on its promise to clear acne prone skin. I can see a difference in my skin overnight after use of this product. I would definitely recommend purchasing. A bottle of this product has lasted me a year because a little goes a long way.

        I hate the glass bottle. I always feel like it's going to slip out of my hands and break. I hope they change it. I usually use clear by philosophy and I have really bad breakouts when my monthly comes. I've been only using this product for two weeks and it seems to really help my skin. I would recommend this product!

              A:

              Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser would be the cleanser we'd suggest for those with blemish-prone, oily skin. Unlike some traditional acne facial washes, this one contains hydrating and soothing ingredients to help counteract dryness, so it's a great option for him based on your description of his skin type, condition, and concerns.

          • Q:

            I'm currently trying to find a product that will help clear up these red/brown marks on my face left from past blemishes & I was wondering what product I should buy to clear up the marks & if this is a product that would help clear them up? I don't break out as much anymore just a few bumps on my forehead & chin but for the most part the rest of my skin is smooth, it's just the marks left behind from past breakouts.

              The Ain't Misbehavin' line is to prevent acne. The Kakadu C line is best to clear hyperpigmentation.

              A:

              Yes, you can! The only type of cleanser to avoid when using a cleansing brush is one containing any exfoliating particles (such as scrubs), as this could over-exfoliate the skin and cause irritation.
