I have always been a loyal customer of clean & clear products whenever it came to treating my acne and cleansing my face. As a result of some personal changes, my face has been breaking out more often than normal, so I decided to try this face cleanser after reading some reviews. I used it the first night, and my face felt awesome. However, the next morning whenever I got up my brand new wash cloths that I had received as a wedding gift we’re conpletely covered in bleach spots. I have never had any issues with other face cleaners, and now I’m scared of what it might be doing to my face. If it is strong enough to bleach my wash cloths, how is it harming my face. I am very unsatisfied with this product and very upset with how it ruined my wash cloth and towel.

I had a bit of acne when I started using this product, Ive been using this for about 2 weeks now. I followed every instruction and even used One of the best moisturizers to go with it, I didnt see improvements on the first week so I continued to use this, but I regret continuing to use this product because now all of a sudden It started drying my skin SEVERELY and worsening my acne even while using one of the best moisturizers that always helped keep my acne in check. I Then did my research and realized that this prouduct DOESNT CLEAR ACNE. What it really does is CAUSE IT. From experience and a bit of science, when you first use it, you might notice a bit of improvements and you likely wont experience much dryness, BUT DO NOT CONTINUE TO USE IT. what really happens is your skin gets confused when you first start using it because its unfamiliar with all the harmful and HARSH ingredients in the cleanser, then eventually after a week or two your skin will have a terrible reaction to the ingredients starting to dry up SEVERLY, And youll start breaking out badly from using it. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND USING THIS AT ALL.

My dermatologist recommended this product to me and it works so well. I use It both in the morning and night and started to notice results with a week. As a teen my skin is super prone to pimples and this face was is perfect when it comes to protecting and treating blemishes! AMAZING FACE WASH!!!

So I have been breaking out more recently and wasn't sure why. My skin has always reacted well to benzoyl peroxide so I thought I would give this a try. OMG.....this is the ONLY product I have used with that ingredient that does not leave my skin dry at all. It is super creamy, and you only have to use a dime sized amount. It is gentle enough for morning and night use, and does not irritate my skin at all even with the 10% BP. Happy to have tried and found this! For me I got clear skin in just 3 days.

When I first started using this face wash, I was astonished. I had used many different brands and types of face wash for my acne and nothing was working. Salicylic Acid didn’t help clear my skin and I was running out of options. I came upon this and after using it my skin became so nice. It didn’t clear all of it but I became confident and my acne cleared up nicely. 3 months later, after buying my second bottle, it all changed. I’m not sure if the formula changes or something, but I started having BAD allergic reactions to it. My eye lids (above and below) would swell largely and several times I couldn’t open my eyes. I would get rashes and hives and have itchiness throughout my body. At first I didn’t know if it was from the face wash, but months later I am fairly certain. This is so upsetting because it was the ONLY thing that helped my acne and I had to stop using it. Did the formula change? I have no idea but I am disappointed and not sure if I should recommend this or not.

Absolutely terrible. I've never been sensitive to anything or had to deal with sensitive skin until this product. It started making my eyelids flare up with itchiness and they were swelling and red. I kept using the product because at the time i wasn't sure if it was because of this face wash. But then my eyebrows started flaking and i was getting giant bumps on my eyelids... I stopped using it and it immidately disappeared. I tried it again a few weeks later thinking maybe just one a week it wouldn't do no harm. but that one day I used it my eyes were beyond itchy all day and swelled up again they looked half closed. Not worth it.

Turned to this after Clean & Clear discontinued the 5% BP wash. I noticed that they were made of the same ingredients so I tried it. It has definitely cleared up a LOT of my acne. No more breakouts, only the occasional hormonal pimple or pimple due to stress. If you suffer from acne, and haven't tried this, it's worth a shot. I use Thayer's witch hazel after washing my face and my face hasn't been clearer since I've started using these products. PLEASE DONT DISCONTINUE THIS FACEWASH!! Thank you!
