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.

Not a fan

I started using this one instead of the pink one because the store was out of the pink one. I am seriously breaking out like I'm 13. I don't know why or what is different (I don't know much about the ingredients of skin care products), but it is awful! I have always used the pink astringent in the morning and at night as a face cleaner/make-up remover (it burns, but works FANTASTIC) and have never had any problems. I will be switching back to the other very quickly!

Saved my skin!

I stopped using proactiv after using it for 10 years because 1. It wasn't working anymore and 2. I didn't want to pay for something that wasn't working! Anyways, I switched over to clean & clear because my skin went crazy from stopping proactiv. It seriously saved my skin. I started using the black head eraser scrub and when I added this toner into my regimen, my skin completely cleared up. I have cystic acne and this got rid of it all. It didn't dry my skin out at all and it smells so good! Please don't ever stop making this stuff.

Algae always gives me acne

This version with algae in it really doesn't work for me (and probably some other acne sufferers). I tried it without noticing all the ingredients and wondered why my acne was worse. It's the algae, I'm sure. It always does it to me. The rest of the ingredients work great; I just switched to a salicylic acid toner with no algae and it works great. The regular version of this has no algae, so just cut it with saline or water to make it light enough for sensitive skin. A smaller problem is that I'm older now and need some moisturizing ingredients in my acne products so they don't over-dry. There are some that don't bother oily skin at all, like in my new toner from a different manufacturer :)

This stuff is amazing. I can use it multiple times a day and it really makes a difference in how much oil my face produces. I have oily sensitive skin and finding stuff that works for me is really hard. The Essentials sensitive skin line has made all the difference.

I have only just bought this product last week and virtually all of my acne is gone! I've used a lot of acne products in the past but so far this is defiantly my favorite!
