    I wouldn't use them. They're both full of detergents, which compromise and damage the skin barrier. The more damaged the skin barrier, the more bacteria can get in and create acne for those susceptable.

    :( I've used them for years and never had problems until the last few months.

    ^^^ one of two things: it's not the product, it's your, or the formulation of the products has changed.

    Is one better than the other, ingredient-wise?

    I don't think the formulas have changed, but maybe.

    I know when I use too many products my face will break out more. I had a bad break out in Feb and just quit using my products for awhile. Found out the less is more thing works better for my acne prone skin. Now I just use a cleanser, moisturizer, and eye cream. Always told to use a toner since I have oil/normal combo skin but it dried my face out worse then the breakouts came from irritation. I dont use one at all now.

    Take a break and see how your skin reacts.
