I found that the glycolic acid cleanser was sufficient for keeping my skin clear and I did not need to use salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide at the same time (although, I never found either of those things worked to keep my skin clear).

I have been using this with an OTC benzoyl peroxide gel. I've read in many acne forums that you can use the glycolic acid first if you're using a gel wait ten minutes then spot treat with benzoyl peroxide. PTR makes a great glycolic gel. You can use this cleanser once a day to not over dry.

I definitley wouldn't use salicylic acid. That's what I was doing before and my oily skin turned into combination oily/dry skin which sucked big time. I use this cleanser with a sensitive skin toner and moisterizer and my face has cleared up. The glycolic acid should be sufficient. You should also make it a point to exfoliate at least once a week, or purchase one of sephoras Face Complexion Brushes and use that with your cleasner every other day, that's what I do. This is what helps your skin glow and rid it of scars/dark spots quickly, which will at the same time also help with the acne. Hope I helped :)

One word....no. I would NOT recommend using this with any other treatment, it would be too drying. I've used this for a couple months now, and its drying even though i have oily/combination skin. This clears up scars and acne, but make sure you put on sunscreen before you head out the door, use a really good moisturizer after washing, and do not scrub hard. This face wash is strong and i wouldn't recommend using it more than twice daily.

Use glycolic acid!!! They say its an anti aging treatment but actually works amazing on acne prone skin like mine! It also shrinks pores and clears blackheads! That is so hard to find in one skin care treatment! It also help smooth your skin and reduce the appearence of scars, i promise! :)
