nor can I
The only one I have that has salicylic acid is a Clean and Clear one and it did very little for my acne. I know most of mine is hormonal cystic acne so there is little external help for it but I've had a break out lately and it's driving me crazy.

I've always found Salicylic acid to be the way to go. There is a Clearasil one with that too. But I only use dab on gels rather than toners.

I went and got this shampoo (not family with all the shampoo ingredients, so it's probably full of crap... lol), and used it on DD last night. This morning, her hair was LOVELY and soft and smooth. I used the conditioner also.
The PEG's are linked to infertility and a few types of cancer. (There were 3 diff PEGs in that ingredients list).
DMDM hydantoin is often contaminated with formaldehyde and is a skin irritant (so weird it's in the product)
The things that MIGHT be doing some good to your skin are:
Tetradibutyl Pentaerithrityl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate which is an antioxidant
Sodium cocoate which help dry up excess sebum and clear dirt.
Everything else is preservative, fragrance, something to make the product "nicer" (like making it glide on smoother, look better, blend ingredients together, etc) but not more effective. The drying-out of the skin might be helping the acne, but long-term drying out your skin isn't going to be beneficial...
Skincare is so confusing, but if you're happy with it, keep using it. Just be careful... because the sodium cocoate won't be great long-term, because drying out your skin usually means your skin gets sore and dry and ages more quickly... and sometimes your skin will go "eff you," and just create more dramas for you in the end.

Yikes. When I saw paraben on the list I knew it wasn't great but didn't look at it until I posted that. Means its a patrolium based product which I don't like. Might have to keep looking for something....or actually try out the manuka honey I've been meaning to..

I rotate between this one and ones meant to be deeper conditioning (like the dove ones).
