Directions

Because this is a medicine, it’s super important to start with clean skin.

So wash your face then apply a thin layer over the affected area. You can do this up to 3 times a day.

But be smart. If your skin starts to dry out or peel, reduce your use to once a day.

Know that clearer skin is in your future!

Like liquid bleach, but worse

In addition to making your skin dry, red, and irritated, this will bleach your pillowcase and towel/washcloth. Stick to the stuff with salicylic acid. It still works but is much more gentle.

I have had acne for a while and I had tried everything (i.e. Proactive, Proactive +, all the types of prescriptions that doctors give, benzoyl peroxide,etc. )- but nothing seemed to work! I have oily skin so I needed to find something that wouldn't build oils up on my skin, but take away oil. With Clean and Clear® I have started to use the MORNING BURST Detoxifying Facial Cleanser in the morning and the CONTINUOUS CONTROL Acne Cleanser followed by the Persa Gel. Then at night I use again the CONTINUOUS CONTROL Acne Cleanser and then the Persa Gel, then I apply moisturizer (MORNING BURST HYDRATING GEL MOISTURIZER). This routine has helped me so much! I used to have tons of acne but now I have just a couple little tiny pen-point slightly red dots randomly on my face (I maybe have like 3 or 4). This stuff works so well! Im even thinking about adding the NIGHT RELAXING DEEP CLEANING FACE WASH for the top notch clean at night before I use the Acne Cleanser, the Persa Gel, and the moisturizer. I absolutley recommend these products- especially the Persa Gel because it used to be a prescription that your doctor would have to prescribe to you but now it is on the shelf at your local drug store, Thank you CLEAN AND CLEAR! Keep making good products, because even if no one else buy's them... I will!!!

I have heard that this product works well to fight breakouts. Last night I used it for the first time and woke up with my face extremely red and swollen. The redness spread to areas of my face I didn't apply the gel to. Even with cold water the itchiness has not gone away. What do I do??

I've heard a lot of great things about this product. I have acne break outs mainly in the winter so as soon as I started breaking out I bought this. I've been using it for about a month and haven't really had any improvement, and I'm still getting a fair amount of new break outs every day. I didn't experience any burning or anything though.

I enjoyed this product, it worked really well for my skin. Starting out on this product my skin was terrible and in really bad condition but now its fairly clear. The main thing you need to know is that this is a harsh product DO NOT rub large amounts on to your face or it will burn.( This is being said from experience) I had to learn the hard way and you must be gentle with your skin. Overall I recommend this product I feel like its meant for people with really bad acne not just the person with one breakout.

I used this product for the first time yesterday when my face looked like a pizza lol, it was terrible. I applied it yesterday morning about 11am and then again yesterday evening at about 8pm. Woke up this morning and my face looks a million times better! I regret not buying this sooner. My spots have reduced in size by a significant amount.
