Ugh!! I am so grossed out!!!

I need good facial cleanser recommendations, asap!!

My nose is really oily for some reason ( ) while the rest of my face tends to be teetering between normal and, occasionally, dry. It's weird, I know. And frigging annoying.

I just looked in the mirror and saw a HUGE pimple right there by my nose!! It looks so gross and I am so irritated. What cleanser would be good for my weird skin?

I have been using Noxema. It is ok but apparently doesn't deep clean the oily part like I need.

I've been using the neutrogena face scrub and really like it. It takes care of both the dry spots and the oily parts.

My favorite cleanser evah is Neutrogena deep clean cream cleanser. It works miracles on my aging, getting winkles yet still breaking out skin.

I have been using the oil cleansing method for several months now and love it! You can also try dabbing tea tree oil onto the pimple and it will cleared up in a day or so. or you can also steam your Face over Teatree oil and water in a pot.

A friend of mine just told me to try honey on a partially squeezed out 1/3 of a lemon. She says it works great for any skin type

I like the Walmart brand (Equate) version of Proactiv. It works really well for me.
