Alright SCB... out with it. Confess your HG's that work in spite of the SCB popular recs.. rop

I confess I've been using SO's Dial bar soap for my face. Broke out a little while back and he challenged me to use what he uses on his face (dial/bronners) since he always has clear skin. I begrudgingly have been using it and to my surprise, my combo/dry clog prone skin is... liking it. ack!!
