Quoting Stfu Squirrel:" I know, I used to swear by it but when I started working for a spa they all jumped on me. It's one of ... [snip!] ... it has salicylic acid, but there are soooo many products on the market that are so much better. This stuff is incredible."
It makes sense though. I've never even thought about switching my face exfoliating cream because I've just been using it for SO long.

The stuff I posted in that link has a lot of chemical exfoliants, so it's not just the physical exfoliant like the apricot seeds or shells or whatever. So if you get something like that, you have to be super gentle with it. I have really pale, translucent skin and the first time I got a glycolic acid peel I thought my face was on fire. That stuff is no joke. It works though!

I use Aveeno 'Clear Complexion' foaming face wash and I love it. It's great for sensitive skin, won't dry you out, but won't make you oily either. I also use the Aveeno 'Clear Complexion' moisturizer as well, it's the only moisturizer that won't break me out (my skin is weird and crazy sensitive).

Thanks for your responses everyone. It's been very frustrating. ESPECIALLY since I didn't get bad skin on my face until after high school, and then more recently. I also to have a really oily face. But now it's really dry. To be honest, I didn't know that could happen.
