Directions

Start with clean hands.

Use those clean hands to splash some H20 on your face.

Squeeze a small amount of cleanser onto wet palms – a dime-size should do it.

Gently massage the cleanser all over your face for about 20-30 seconds.

Avoid your eyeballs whydontcha.

Rinse thoroughly then pat your fabulous face dry with a towel.

If you’re heading outside, for goodness sake apply sunscreen.

Give that fabulous face in the mirror a wink and a smile.

A-OK to use twice a day – morning and night!

I tried this product a year ago and it worked really well too. However, when I ran out and bought another tube, it suddenly didn't work for my face anymore. My face felt super sensitive and oily after I used it. I'm going to try try their deep action cream cleanser soon. I'm not going to give up on Clean & Clear products just yet.

I have struggled with acne for a while as a result of hormones, the constant use of make up, stress, and other factors. My face was breaking out- full of red, irritated bumps literally everywhere. I considered turning to Proactiv again, but I felt unsure because of my previous results from the product. Instead, I purchased this product last week after a friend recommended it to me and my face has improved incredibly within that period. :) The first two days were filled with burning/cooling sensations from the ingredients. I wasn't sure if that was normal, but I guess it just means it was working. I also noticed my skin became more dry than usual. Those pesky zits started decreasing in size after 2-3 days of use and the small ones went away after a week of using the product. It's only been a week and I usually don't write reviews, but this product is my new Holy Grail acne wash. I definitely recommend this to anyone battling acne. Just make sure to use moisturizer as well. :)

Everyone's skin is unique and responds to different products. I have personally tried everything I could get my hands on from ProActiv to Clearasil and everything in between. I always break out around that time of the month, like clock work- especially on my chin. I use to spend weeks trying to get rid of these zits that seemed to be three layers deep. Nothing helped. I've been using this cleanser for two months now and (fingers crossed) I've had clear skin for 3 weeks :-) Just don't leave it on for longer than the directions specify, you will turn red, it's very strong. Also, like many other acne products don't skip to many days in a row, it doesn't work if you don't use it (duh).

After reading mostly good reviews, I decided to try this out. My acne got worse. Red, itchy and really, really dry face. So disappointing.

I started getting a ton of littles bumps on my forehead and it looked terrible. I tried a lot of different products with salicylic acid, but none of them made my acne go away. At first, when I switched to benzoyl peroxide, it made my face bright red and flaky, but the more I used it, the less irritated my face got. Then I started to use this product and within a month, all my little acne bumps were gone! It does dry out my skin quite a bit, but I expect that from something with 10% benzoyl peroxide. I still get blackheads but definitely not as much as before I started using this! Love this product!
