If you suffer from acne this should be part of your regimen. I have had acne for over twenty years and like a lot of acne sufferers I have tried a lot of stuff to clear my face up. I have found that sulfur works better than anything else - glycolic acids are certainly a close second and then salicylic acid. This trifecta is what has worked best for me. I am so glad I found this soap because not only does it help with my acne it seems to help prevent those red shaving bumps. My skin is very sensitive so anytime I shave my legs get irritated. I started lathering up my body with this soap after I shave and it seems like I am not getting that irritation like I used to. This soap is very drying so I use moisturizer after my shower so I don't experience dryness. This product is great!

This stuff smells AWFUL!!!! I have tried other sulfur products before but they didn't stink as bad as this one. The smell lingered for days! My clothes, sheets, pillow, towels and skin smelled horrible! I do not know if this would work if I had been able to tolerate the smell, but I certainly didn't want people wondering what the awful smell was whenever I was around! They need to cover the smell with some sort of natural fragrance.

    This product was absolutely amazing. I ordered it on a whim, but thought I would try it to address some acne I was having after pregnancy. Literally it worked overnight. Now I use it just a couple days a week to keep my skin clear. I would highly recommend it!

          Comments about Grandpa's Thylox Acne Treatment Soap with Sulfur, 3.25 oz:

          I use this soap twice daily and the results are amazing! My friends noticed improvement in my skin within the first couple days if using it!! It has stopped my break outs and evened out my skin texture! I used to have what I called "reptile skin" it was bumpy and breaking out...now my skin is smooth and soft!!! WOW!! I never knew one bar of soap that is affordable could change my life!! I have spent so much money on acne products that failed. This one is a winner!! I use it with my clarisonic and I also use it as a mask. For the mask I will apply the lather and let it dry (takes 5-10min), then rinse and apply lotion. I use Aquanil lotion (the best I have used with acne products) afterwards because it can be drying. I do not use any other acne medications, this is all I need! It has only been 2 weeks and my skin has dramatically improved and is breakout free!! I love it!!

          Comments about Grandpa's Thylox Acne Treatment Soap with Sulfur, 3.25 oz:

          Works very well if you use to right. (Read directions, do not scrub onto face). It is also drying,so make sure to have a nice gel based moisturizer (I reccomend Clean & Clear gel moisture). I have oily very acne prone skin. I'm also allergic to benzoyl peroxide. This stuff works wonderfully.

          Cleared my acne breakouts and now appears to be healing the scars. I use it once a day and follow with a moisturizer because the soap is drying out my skin. It stings pretty bad if you get it in your eyes. It does smell bad but I prefer to smell the sulphur rather than masking it by a strong fragrance like other sulphur soaps do. My son tried it and says it is the only thing that keeps his face clear and he has been on everything from the dermatologist. The pros greatly outweigh the cons.

              Comments about Grandpa's Thylox Acne Treatment Soap with Sulfur, 3.25 oz:

              I have been using this soap for about a week now and I am liking the results. I have had bad skin on my back, chest, and arms for years, so just the fact that I am SEEING results in a week is impressive. This might sound weird, but I actually apply it before I shower by wetting and exfoliating my skin with a warm washcloth, letting it dry, and then rinsing it off in the shower (as the directions imply). It takes more time, but if that's what it takes to have clear skin then I'm all for it. This does contain sulfur, so of course it's going to smell. It doesn't, however, linger on the skin, so no worries here.

                I have very sensitive skin and also problems with acne. I use Benzaclin every day, so I need a facial cleanser that doesn't dry my skin out and that also isn't loaded with moisturizers. I also like knowing exactly what's in the products I use on my skin. I've been using this soap for several months now, morning and night, and it works well. I find it works best if I lather the soap on my face, leave it sit for a minute or two, and then rinse it off. Other natural cleansers I've used haven't worked as well, so I'd recommend this. The price is great, too.

                    Works for my teenage son. When used regularly, acne really clears up fast. The only down fall is the smell. My son says it smells like firecrackers. The smell does linger on towels and wash cloths, even after being washed. But it's ok, that's what it takes to have clear skin.

                    Using for 2 weeks now. Has helped clear mild acne from dirt at work from my 38 year old combination skin. I've tried everything, but nothing clears my skin from the dirt I pick up at the warehouse I work in. This smells like sulfur, so yes, it's stinky, but it has made my skin look good again! And because it smells bad, my kids leave it alone!

                    I have suffered from acne on my shoulders and back for several years and have tried probably dozens of products to no avail. I bought this soap on a whim since its so inexpensive and gave it a shot. Within a couple of weeks, the acne on my shoulders cleared-up. I then bought a brush for my back and have been using it with the soap and it is clearing-up as well. Can't say enough good things about this soap. The only real con is that it will dry-out your hands, but lotion can solve that. Great stuff.

                    Grandpa's Thylox Acne Treatment Soap with Sulfur

                     – As common as it is, acne can be very embarrassing. Luckily, a wide range of treatment options are available to target the pore-clogging dirt, oil, and bacteria that cause pimples. Grandpa's Thylox Acne Treatment Soap with Sulfur uses a 3 percent sulfur formula to reduce breakouts and promote a clear, healthy complexion. This soap can be used alone or paired with other topical products for optimal results.

                    How Can Sulfur Help with Acne?



                    Sulfur therapy has been a popular way to address skin conditions since ancient times, and it remains a common ingredient in dermatologic preparations today. Grandpa's Thylox relies on sulfur to help exfoliate the dead skin cells which can clog the pores and cause breakouts. When this active ingredient is used on your blemish-prone skin, it can help to clear the pores of debris and soften blackheads so that they are more easily eliminated. The Grandpa’s formula also has antiseptic properties in order to reduce acne-causing bacteria.

                    Using Thylox Soap



                    For best results, you should wash your face twice daily using Grandpa's Thylox Acne Treatment Soap. Work the product into a lather and then gently massage it all over the face using your hands or a washcloth. Don't scrub the soap into your skin, but instead let it sit on your face for about a minute. Finally, rinse away the product and pat your face dry. Depending on the severity of your blemishes, Thylox may be enough to help reduce breakouts, or you may need to use it with another topical product. Consult your doctor before adding additional treatment options to avoid irritating or drying out your skin.
