Shower gel/body lotion breakouts

I have managed to get lots of breakouts on my back after changing my shower gel with a creamy, moisturising one.
What can the cause be? I have stopped using it and my skin got back to normal after a month.

Re: Shower gel/body lotion breakouts

It's likely that the product you used had ingredients which blocked your pores and led to spots. Stick with non-comedogenic (non-pore blocking) washes to ensure it doesn't happen again.
