Confused what I should do?

Hi guys! So I'm confused, I recently started using this mild face wash and says it contains salycilic acid because after a long time my cheeks that are clear grew 1 pimple (days before that it started being oily and having small tiny skin tone bumps).  my skin was better for 5 days then suddenly I started getting 3 pimples on my cheeks and now after they start healing new ones appear. Im confused whether or not a mild face fash is causing me to purge or am i just breaking out? So I read about it and says face washes aren't on the skin long so it won't have any effect so I started leaving the face wash 2-3 min before rinsing and now my skin feels dry. I'm wondering if maybe I should just switch and use Cethaphil instead? With no toner and moisturizer? Or should I use cethaphil in the morning and the acid face wash in the night only? Any help will be greatly appreciated thank you! :)
