And the award for the best acne cleanser? Peter Thomas Roth – Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) 2% Acne Wash! It finally dawned on me a couple months ago, that I I haven’t been using a cleanser with BHA, which is short for salicylic acid. I took a small sample of this product at my work and used it at night for five days. My skin didn’t feel like it was stripped of its oil’s and I noticed I was having fewer breakouts on my chin. I loved how soft my face felt. Tricks my make up started to look a lot better and didn’t separate throughout the day. I ended up buying a full-size bottle and use it a few times a week to help minimize my blackheads and breakouts on my chin and four head. This product is great for all skin types and can be used every day for moderate acne or 2-3 times a week to get control oil production.
