My family uses this cleanser to clean their face when needed and has many several years. Overall we are fond of the product and think it's works well. We use this in conjunction with the Clean and Clear Continous Control and Foaming Face Wash. We have never had any side effects to note other, but that changed the other day. I had a pimple and popped it, so I decided to put some astringent on a cotton ball and hold it in the pimple to clean it. I held it against my skin with light pressure for about 10 minutes while I watched tv. When I removed the cotton ball I noticed the skin area that was touched was completely white and appeared raised. Later that same day the white area seamed to go away but is being replaced by what appears to be a bruise. I woke up after 2 days and the area is visibly swollen and red/bruised. I. Not exactly sure what the astringent did to my skin due to prolonged contact, but it's not something I would recommend anyone doing. The area continues to be swollen and discolored, but j can't find anything that would indicate what it may be. It's a holiday weekend so I'm waiting to see a doctor. I do think this is a great product but don't leave it on your face for extended periods of time.

The only product that has cleared my clogged pores. Don't overuse it though - it'll make your skin leathery and strip if you do.

This product really does help me a lot if I notice a few pimples before I go to sleep i put this stuff on my face and the pimple isn't noticeable anymore although, it does burn (which means it working) and it leaves my face really dry so I recommend putting moisturiser on your face after 10-20 minutes of letting it dry

I've been using this product for about 4 years now and have been satisfied with it completely. Sometimes it does burn a little bit, but that is the point so it can help with your acne. If my face is dry in the morning after using it I use the morning hydration gel but other than that this product is amazing !!

This has helped my skin soooo much. I've been using it since I was in 5th grade because my acne started young and was bad. This makes your skin have no oil on it and really helps with acne. I use the wash and this astringent and then persa-10 it has worked wonders on my skin. Everyone should give it a try!!!

I started using this product about a week ago. Within the first three days it seem as if it was working so I was like 'yaaay'. As I continued I started to notice little tiny bumps on my face and it start spreading the more I used it. I am a little disappointed because it didn't work. Urrrg now I have to get these things off my face and don't know what to use. *SAD FACE*
