    I have been trying a few of their products lately.
    -The shave cream works well even though it does not lather at all.
    -The aftershave is good, it has a pleasant scent and dries quickly. This was my favourite.
    -The clay pomade is nice. The earthy scent goes away quickly and it dries well.
    -The shampoo and conditioner are so-so. The scent is similar to mint toothpaste. I expected more at this price point.
    -The face scrub was a sample so I tried it - it smelled marzipan-almondy. Not something I regularly use so I can't compare it to anything.
    -The oil free moisturizer is good for just that - oily skin. If you live somewhere cold though, I would go with something that provides better moisture.

    So far the only products I would buy again would be the aftershave and the pomade. I would be curious to see how the deodorant and soaps are though. I notice on their website you can order sample and all you have to pay for is postage.

    Skin is so sensitive thing so we should take care of it. For skin care it is good to drink enough water in a day because water keeps skin fresh and healthy. Eat fruits and avoid eating oily food too much. Anyhow all tips are nice that you people shared.

    Baxter stuff suck. Only like their deodorant.

    Shaving with a badger brush is so nice. My face feels so happy when prepping.

    Go on Amazon and buy 24 or 48 pillow cases. That way you can have a clean pillowcase everynight. You can get them cheap if you buy the B grade. Those are the ones that are sewed a little wrong. That's what the hotels buy.

    Medications - Minocycline (one pill twice daily), Retina-A (topical gel) in the eveving. I've used these for probably 3 years, and they work very, very well. I think I'm going to wean off the minocycline after I shave this beard to see how I respond though (antibiotics=scary)

    Morning - Wash my face with a microfiber norwex cloth, then lather up with a clinique men's facewash bar of soap, then rinse, then splash with ice cold water to close up pores. I don't know what makes norwex cloth's special, but they have silver in them or something so they're expensive and make my face feel fantastic after.

    Evening - Wash with microfiber again, apply retina

    Shaving - Dry shave with an electric. If I want to use a blade (more of an occasion thing) I've got a DE, and always splash my face with ice water after to close those pores. If you use a blade do NOT get a triple or double blade, those just collect dead skin and bacteria between blades and that's half the problem. Single-blade disposables, or a DE with new blade each time (they're cheap). Or just disinfect them each time.

    And as has been mentioned... fresh washcloth's, towels, pillowcases, etc., as much as possible. And don't touch your face unless you must.

    First of all I want to say that you should avoid to use chemical products. It's can harm your skin. Try to follow natural ways to groom your skin e.g drink plenty of water in a day and use foods. It's really help you.

    You may want to pay attention to your diet most importantly. Try to find natural ways to help your condition. Medications have terrible side effects that you probably do not want to deal with and they could effect your long term health in a negative way. Drink plenty of water, clean your face with a high quality wash, get plenty of sleep and be patient as this is a hormonal response that everyone goes through, unfortunately some have the problem worse than others. This is a good site I use for skin care issues, check it out here

    good luck!
