Directions

The second most important step in cleaning your skin is to go after any dirt left hiding in your pores.

And here's how you do it:

Soak a cotton ball or pad with some astringent and wipe it over your face.

The T-Zone area is where oil usually hangs out, so give that a good once-over.

Because this product can dry out your skin take it slow and use just once a day.

If all goes well, gradually increase to 2-3 times a day if needed or recommended by your doctor.

I rubbed this on my face once a day and within two days there was visible change. The redness was gone and the small bumps on my forehead and nose had calmed down.

I'm a 27 year old guy and have been using this for years. I haven't been able to find it in stores lately so I had to resort to buying it on Amazon. Because of its lack of availability I feel like Johnson & Johnson is considering phasing this out so I bought five of them. I really hope this isn't the case because there is no other product I can move on to. The blue sensitive astringent doesn't seem to work on my face as much as this one. That being said I highly recommend this to anyone suffering from oily skin. I can't start my day without using this!

I have never had a product rid me of my face demons so quickly. I will for sure be buying this product again. I bought it in the three pack with the face wash and moisturizer. Ive been using it for less than a month and my skin isn't dry anymore thanks to the moisturizer I would also reccomend that product to friends as well!!

I LOVE this product and have used it for a number of years. I have not been able to find it anywhere lately and came here to see if there might be a recall or something. Every store I've been in for the last month I have looked for and not found this product. Please ship some to Albuquerque, NM!

I used this product once in a small area and I have at least 30 tiny puss filled blisters on that area on my face. I followed all of the directions by not using another topical acne medication. The directions also say that if irritation occurs to use it once a day well I won't be using this product again.
