Unblemish Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash contains 3% sulfur as an active ingredient, and although sulfur is a topical disinfectant option for battling blemishes, it is drying and irritating to skin. In a cleanser, you’re getting less irritation than with leave-on products, but you’d also need to completely avoid the eye area and mucous membranes, which isn’t the most convenient way to wash your face and remove makeup. If a leave-on benzoyl peroxide product (from 2.5% to 10%) doesn’t control your acne, sulfur is an option, but given sulfur’s side effects, it is best used under a doctor’s care and not in a rinse-off product or a cleanser where eye irritation is a daily risk.

Brand Overview

Rodan + Fields At-A-Glance

Many of you are probably familiar with physicians Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields from their appearances on infomercials about their successful ProActiv line of anti-acne skincare products. The Rodan + Fields approaches are advertised for those suffering from a variety of skin conditions, and are claimed to work for anti-aging, skin discolorations, sensitive skin, and acne.

Most consumers want simplicity when it comes to making decisions about what skincare products they should use. The Rodan + Fields marketing strategy is to make it simple. They eliminate the confusion about what products work together by creating streamlined, prepackaged product groups, each aimed at specific skin-care concerns. Each product group is enclosed in a clever, take-along parcel that is the skin-care equivalent of a sack lunch. (Products are also available separately for those who want to customize their routine or add products outside the predetermined routines.) This structured approach has merit, but, each routine has at least one questionable or lackluster formulation, or a problem with packaging.
