made my skin worse

Before using this product, I had very oily skin. After about a week or two of using this, I now have dry patches all over my face. At first I thought it was eczema (since I am prone to that), but I began noticing the dry patches were appearing ALL OVER MY FACE. This doesn't even prevent breakouts for me! Overall just made my skin dry, didn't help with my pimples, and stung for 3 minutes when I got the slightest bit into my eye.

I've used clean and clear products regularly for 10+ years, this specific product for the same amount of time or longer. I bought a new bottle of this one the other day at my local Walmart and to my surprise had a severe allergic reaction to it. It immediately started burning near my eyes. After running luke warm water over my whole face for about 10 minutes, my eyes were still burning... very similar to getting hot pepper juice in them... my eyes were very swollen and redness like a rash surrounded them. I loved this product prior to this experience however I can say I will not be purchasing again.

Cleans Your Face

This product did a really good job at cleaning my skin, although it did not prevent acne, it really helped my skin. (A small summary about my skin), I have hormonal acne, so a face wash can't prevent my acne. I'm only left with scarring from this product. I completely recomend if you've had problem with salycilic acid.

Leathery face

I bought this product and used it for a week, I thought it was a good face wash until about the 5th day using it. I woke up and my face was itchy, and I noticed it had a very leather feel to it. I immediately stopped using it, I have used other Clean and Clear products in the past but I wouldn’t recommend this face wash. I have to wait for my face to go back to normal now.

I’m 14 years old and Before I started using this product I got massive pimples on my chin all the time. Once I was using this product for a week or two I barely got any, just a few pimples here and there. But the face wash started to die the cloths that I was using to wash my face with, witch was fine and all but then when I would wash them all of my clothes and towels would get died too. So I would wash the cloths in a separate load of laundry and some how they still managed to die everything else. It got so bad that I would wash the cloths then have to put the washing machine on another cycle so that all of the face wash residue was off the washer machine and after all that, I would continue washing the rest of my clothes normally. But I didn’t stop using the wash because it was doing wonders for my skin... After using the wash and going through all this trouble for three months or so, I decided that I had to use something else because it wasn’t worth all this time and hundreds of dollars of clothes being ruined. So in conclusion I’m now using another face wash and it isn’t working as well but it isn’t dyeing anything witch Is great. But I think that if you want to use this product be aware that it will most likely die most of your stuff.

made my skin dry

I used to have oily skin. When I first used this product, I thought my skin cleared up a bit after using the product, however my skin started being dry and now i have more pimples. I don't know what to do. I used to use the cetaphil oil control face wash and moisturizer and use this cream called Epiduo forte. Using cetaphil didn't really help with my oily skin so I switched to this one and don't know if I should continue using this product. I am 14 years old and I really want clear skin. I also have acne scars.

Ive had a really bad acne problem for years. I picked up one of these and my skin started clearing up from the second day. I recommend being consistent with this product. Use day and night. I went to pick this up at the drug store again but couldnt find it :( I live in The Bahamas though so they probably stopped shipping it over. But if you have access to this USE IT! And use it properly to get best results.
