I use this stuff as well. I was skeptical at first, but I bought it and within a week my face was 10x clearer than before.

Oxy Maximum strength treatment cream. Once at lunch, and another layer before I head to bed. To much of it could cause the skin to dry up, then days later the skin oils over and your stuck back to square 1.

try to find something with 10% benzoyl peroxide in it. during cold, dry months you should consider applying moisturizer to your face otherwise the overdrying may spur overproduction of oils to compensate.

and avoid touching your face.

i'm on that camp. they're pretty cheap too. plus if you up the dosage it can help treat chlamydia, which you might catch once your acne is gone.

The first and only time I've ordered off of a tv infomercial is what I use: Proactiv. Stuff works GREAT.

differin worked for me but I'm not certain how much it costs. and just so you know... washing your face tends to help. I also wash my pillow once a week, but that's probably more of an obsession than anything else.
