I’ve only been using for a week now, I’ve noticed some clearing. I plan on continue use but I will warn you you can NOT get this stuff near your eyes. They will burn and swell. Also, I have now ruined two of my towels because they have been bleached where I dried my face off. No matter how much I rinse my face, it still bleached my towel?

It has completely cleared my skin. Because I joined the cross country team this year, I began running a lot more than usual. Along with a faster mile time, I also gained whiteheads, blackheads, and more stubborn acne scars. After one week of using this product, I saw results. After three weeks, my skin is pretty much completely clear, and it has never looked better.

I just tried to use this for the third time. It seems to work on skin, but it burns my eyes terribly. Like BURNING, not being able to open them and flushing them out with cold water. They are still stinging. I don’t know what’s in the formulation, but no thanks.

I really liked using this product, however I found that every day my eyes would be irritated after use. I had to stop using it.

I’ve struggled with acne since my teen years, and it has been a pain trying to find something to keep my skin clear that’s also affordable. I tried proactive in the past and it was ok, but besides it being ridiculously expensive it was a little too harsh for my skin. My mom has been using clean & clear forever and has always nagged me to try it too, but I just assumed that 10% benzoyl peroxide would be too harsh. However not only does my face feel smooth, its gentle enough that I don’t need a moisturizer! As an added bonus I don’t need to rely on birth control pills to keep my skin in check. Anything that saves me time and money is awesome!

I've had clear skin pretty much my whole life up until about 2 years ago I started to get the worst cystic acne out of nowhere. I would cry about it, I would isolate myself and not only did it hurt physically for me, it was draining me mentally. I went on birth control, which made it dramatically worse, my doctor prescribed me a topical cream that was soo expensive that did nothing for me. I ended up caving and trying proactiv which literally transformed my skin. Everything cleared up within days, I'm not kidding. I then ended up getting microneedling done on my face and my skin was completely acne free for months after! Now, its starting to come back and as I was crying over my skin again, I realized I'm too broke for proactiv which concerned me because it's the only thing that works.. I went to the local drugstore and picked up this face wash in a kit with the hydrating gel and acne spot treatment and my face has gotten SO so so much better, I've been using this product for a few days now and have noticed a dramatic change in my skin in the best way possible! If anyone is struggling with acne and are on a budget I highly recommend this product! seriously such an underrated cleanser. Also if anyone is looking for something that works from the inside, I also take Diane-35 birth control. In europe I know its used as an acne medication and it works big time! It's also not one of the many birth controls that makes your acne "worse before it gets better" it starts working right away and it's amazing!

I have used this product for about 10 years at the recommendation of my dermatologist. Salicylic acid does not work for me but this benzoyl peroxide formula gets and keep my skin clear. I wish I could find it in a travel size, too. I wonder if this is going away because I can no longer find it at Ulta and there is a new C&C line there, but no benzoyl peroxide..... :-(

I'm a teenager and my acne is really bad. I've used face masks for my acne and it did get rid of most of my acne. I switched my scrub for this cleanser. It worked for only 2 days then my acne became worse. I thought it was gonna work but now my face AND neck is full of pimples. I have to switch my face wash AGAIN.
