Directions

After you've cleaned your face, and your pores, you're ready for the finishing touch.

Yes, this moisturizer, but it also has acne-fighting medicine in it, so go easy.

Apply a thin layer over the affect area. Do this once a day for the first few days, then gradually increase to 2-3 times a day if needed or recommended by your doctor.

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

I started using this product because my facewash I normally use causes dry skin. I figured since it helps with acne, it would be perfect for my sensitive acne prone skin. I have used this product for a litte over a month now, and my face is 10x more broken out than it has ever been before! So bad that a dermatologist told me to stop using this product and had to give me a special face wash. This product was NOT worth my money and I will never purchase again .

I have been using this product for 2 weeks now, i didn't expect it to work straight away. I expected more spots to come because it's a new product. I got alot more acne on my cheek and around my mouth, chin, nose and forehead where i applied it. It's still all there so the reducing spots property doesn't work and the worst thing i get dry skin around my mouth and chin and i apply it every morning and every morning it does nothing and stays dry. What a waste of money.

I have been using this moisturizer since it first came on the market. I've tried many others and all have hurt my skin leaving me with a burning feeling and causing me to break out. This one is light feels amazing it kind of has a calming refreshing effect and has never caused me to have a breakout. Love using it just before bed. Because my skin is extremely oily I only use a moisturizer when I absolutely have to or if I'm having a breakout in which case this helps to get rid of it. An amazing product that I hope they never get rid of

Love this product. It goes on nice and light; absorbs quickly. Has a good scent. Actually moisturizes and is not too strongly medicated. Good for users who just need a little help. I just use once a day.

I have gone through many moisturizers through the years and I couldn't find any that really worked, until I found this one. It is great! Not oily, leaves your skin feeling very smooth and cool. I have been using this product for one month and I have noticed a big difference in my skin. I highly recommend this product!

Only Moisturizer I Can Use

I am 48 years old and this is the only moisturizer I can use. I have tried so many other brands (and wrinkle creams) over the years and they leave me with break-outs, even ones that are “oil free” I made the mistake one day of being in a rush at the store & bought a generic brand that packaged their product very similar to Clean & Clear (which the store placed right next to the C&C products) and sure enough....I broke-out. I hope they never ever stop making this product!
