CONTINUOUS CONTROL® Acne Cleanser
I'm in my mid-twenties and for the past few years I have had moderate acne. I used proactiv for a while and though it was very successful, it was too expensive. I then was searching for products that would be similar to Proactiv, but cheaper and easier to access. I tried AcneFree for a while and the cleanser was very successful but was discontinued and is only now offered in a kit but I don't want the kit since the cleanser is all I need. I have been using Neutrogena Clear Pore and it is alright but not as good as Proactiv and AcneFree. Yesterday, for the first time, I tried this product since it has a higher concentration of BP, so I figured it would probably work wonders like Proactiv and AcneFree; however, a few hours after using it, my whole face got really itchy. When I finally looked in the mirror, my whole face was red and swollen (both of my eyes are swollen as well). I quickly took benadryl, but when I woke up this morning my eyes were even more swollen (one is almost swollen shut). I am hoping that the swelling will go down soon. By the way, I only used the face wash once. I would definitely recommend doing a skin test on an arm or leg or something prior to using this product on your face to make sure that you do not have a severe reaction. Definitely wait 24 hours before making your decision about using this product since my face has gotten more swollen and itchy over the course of 24 hours.

Burned my face
I want to preface this by saying I am a life long Clean and Clear user so I recommend the brand but not this product. I'm in my late 20s and have minor PMS induced pimples. I thought this would be a great product to keep those at bay as well as the shine I get in hotter months. I used it before bed in mid-October and loved the initial tingle, thinking it was work. The next morning I woke up and my face was painfully swollen, eyes swollen shut. I had to sit with an ice pack just to reduce swelling enough to get in the shower. I went to work (I'm a teacher) sans makeup and my students thought I had gotten into a fight with someone because my face was so red, swollen, and my eyes kept tearing up. The school nurse had me keep an ice pack on my face most of the day. The swelling, blotchiness, and redness subsided slowly over the course of a very painful week. My skin completely dried out and even the mildest of moisturizers burned when applying. If you're going to use this, check with a doctor first! This is a slight step below medical face wash.

The texture of this product is soothing.
I've been using this product for over a month now, and I cannot be more happier with my cool new skin. I love the feel and the texture of this product because it's so creamy and rubs evenly on my face. I use this product every morning and night and I can see a heck of a difference in how clear and soft my skin is. Although it might dry out my skin slightly, I just rub a little lotion on that bad boy and it's good to go. I never buy the same product twice but for this I have to make an exception. Looking forward to seeing more beautiful skin.

Get Clear, and Stay Clear FAST!!
I am a teenager, and for a long time have suffered with major breakouts. Anything with Salycylic Acid in it does not do anything but break me out. I decided to try this product because of it's Benzoyl Peroxide content and was EXTREMELY pleased with the results. It cleared my acne within a week, and does not dry out my skin too much, and i live in Colorado so that's saying" something! I completely recommend this to everyone with any type of skin who needs to cure their acne:)

The first day I used this product there were no issues. The second day I used it my face broke out in tiny itchy red bumps which then spread to my neck and ears and have remained for 2+ days.
I have used many face cleansers/acne products in the past with absolutely no issue. I definitely do not have sensitive skin when it comes to any beauty product
I would not recommend this to anyone! Having a bumpy itchy face is never fun!

Holy Grail Product
Ever since using the Clean&Clear 3 step system I was on a hunt for a single product with 10% Benzoyl Peroxide and when I found this I was sooo happy. I have oily skin and work as a cook and am going to culinary school so I sweat alot and am around grease and this stuff blasts through the oils that build up on my face and get rid of acne fast.
