Does anyone with Johnson & Johnson read these reviews? Whoever made the decision to discontinue this product should be fired. Why is Johnson & Johnson discontinuing an effective product that so many people use? Actually I do know why. Johnson & Johnson got greedy and would rather have people spend $20 for the Clean & Clear Acne Control Kit (contains a cleanser similar to the continuous control acne cleanser) instead of $6 for one tube of continuous control acne control cleanser. SHAME SHAME SHAME!!!

Hi MemphisD, Due to a supplier issue with one of the ingredients (benzoyl peroxide) in our Clean & Clear products, there are temporary manufacturing delays that may impact availability of these products over the next months. We apologize to the consumers who rely on our Clean & Clear products and we are working with the FDA and our suppliers to ensure products are available on shelves as soon as possible. The supply interruption is not the result of manufacturing issues and, when used as labeled, the product is safe and effective.

Best Cleanser Ever

I am 16 and as a male, I have suffered from acne since I was 9, which is odd considering I didn't hit puberty for another 4 years. I love this cleanser. I love the tingling feeling, and how soft my face feels after rinsing. I use it in the morning and I rub it in for 30 seconds, and let it set for a minute, then rinse. After that I use the Clean & Clear Deep Cleaning Astringent, and then the Clean & Clear Advantage Spot Treatment. Good regimen I got going on. :)

I have tried pretty much everything. I first tried this a couple years ago and it works! Like honestly works. I always fall into the hype of all these other new products but, when those fail and my acne goes back to being horrible, I always find myself realizing I should have never stopped using this product. I honestly hope they never stop making this because who knows what my face would look like without it. It is simply the best ever.

I have used this product for 10+ years. I loved it. I told people to use it, I couldn't live without it. In the last month or so, I have noticed that the formula has changed. It leaves my skin slick, oily, it no longer takes off the minimal amount of makeup I wear and my skin is continuing to break out. I haven't had skin issues like this since high school. I'm disappointed and I really would like my trusty face wash back.

New Formula doesn't work for me either

Please BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULA. This has been the ONLY product that has worked for me for years. The new formula is thinner and water is now the first ingredient. Anyhow, the new formula doesn't keep my skin clear anymore. Very Disappointing.

I don't know what I will do if they ever discontinue this product! I suffered from cystic acne from the time I was 13 until 24...I tried EVERYTHING short of accutane. Some products would work for a short amount of time, but my skin would seem to always get used to them and the acne would return. I once overheard a "friend" say that I looked like a burn victim my skin was so bad...then at 24 I found this product. Within two weeks my acne cleared up completely. Within six months I was getting complimented on my beautful, CLEAR skin. I am 36 now and still use this cleanser. I highly, highly recommend.

Several months ago I noticed a major change in the formula for this product and it no longer works as well as the previous formula. Please bring it back to shelves!

I have been using this face wash like many other reviewers for well over 10 years. My skin is addicted to the amazing clear results of this face wash with 10% benzol peroxide, which cannot be found in any other cleanser on the market. This product has many times proved itself to be so affective, in between searching for it the last few weeks my skin has immediately reacted and I'm breaking out. This is the only product out there with everything us loyal customers want and need!! Why would you ever consider discontinuing??? Very unhappy and very broken out!!!! Bring it back, PLEASE!!!!
