Well right now i think you have to diffrent conserns, senstive skin and acne. I would say that the mildest of the bars would do a good job of cleansing without damaging your skin but probably wouldn't rapidly clear your acne. However after you skin heals you could probably change to a more powerful cleanser.

No not for acne try their acne line but since you have flakiness already and sunburn please moisturize after the 3 step acne line its a must... I hope you get better... Remember sometimes your skin has to get use to something new so give it time to work.. every time you switch product routine it takes time for your skin to get use to and please sunscreen is a must outside!

I believe it is great for breakouts around your nose. I wouldn't use it where you are sunburned.

It is good for acne. Be careful of the yellow lotion, dramatically different moisturizing lotion, unless it is the oil free gel. The soap is supposed to be used in conjunction with the other two steps. If you use it alone, your skin will feel really dry. That is because you are pulling the dirts and oils to the surface of the skin. Then the toner removes that and exfoliates. Make sure you are also removing makeup before you use the soap. It isn't a makeup remover. If you are sunburnt, be careful with the toner as it has salicylic acid in it which could hurt. When you skin heals from the sunburn add a scrub to your skincare routine. That will take care of the flaky patches. Right now, a lightweight oil free hydration in addition to your current moisturizer will help.
Best of luck to you!

If you're skin is peeling from the sun, it may be a good idea to stay away from bar soaps for awhile since they tend to dry out the skin a bit. Try a gentle milky cleanser like cetaphil until the peeling goes away. In terms of acne, I don't know if this formula contains anything that actively fights it. Try the clinique soap targeted for acne... it's the one in the blue case.

This soap is Great when used with the 3 step program, i use the extra mild clarifying lotion and the regular lotion. When I have dry patches I use the Clinique 7 day scrub once a week to exfoliate. It's a nice light scrub great for REALLY Sensitive skin!

If you need this for acne skin, use the formula made specially for acne skin,there is a formula made just for acne skin. If you need this for sensitive skin, this absolutely fabulous. I have super sensitive skin and I have been using this bar soap for years, NO problem for me.

Yes, this cleanser is great for sensitive skin like yours because it is very gentle, yet effective.

Yes, I think it might be okay for you, in the mild formula. Don't get the water too hot, and don't pick at your skin. I would also suggest Clinique's "Comfort on Call" and maybe use witch hazel and cotton balls instead of any harsh astringent. Sometimes if my skin is really looking red and gross, I brew a little cheap green tea, let it cool to room temp, and then splash it on my face. Also, you should probably try to drink a little extra water each day, and maybe see if taking vitamins would be an option for you. I think Sephora has some kind of better-skin vitamins they sell (Boscia brand?). Or if you live near a Whole Foods Market, I think that might be another place to look into the nutritional aspect of getting your skin healthy again. They might also have a soothing oatmeal soap or something like that. Good luck!
