Purchased this for my daughter yesterday and we have been trying to get the pump to work but it seems to be stuck. Turned it in the direction shown and it never allows for the pump to completely depress. Is there some trick to this? She threw the packing away as the trash collection arrived so I have nothing to defer to.

Good working cheap face wash. I have combination oily skin with the most oil on my forehead, nose, and chin. I don't have any pimple issues just the oily skin. This face wash works good with cleaning my face during showers and when I wash my face in the morning. I use Aveeno calming facial moisturizer after I wash my face so I have no issues with dryness.

This cleanser is the most irritating cleanser I have ever used. I now follow a youtube channel Dr. Dray and shes a dermatologist thats gives videos on skin cleaner ingredients and UV protection and everything. This cleanser can definitely damage your skin if you use it for a long term basis.

A miracle product

I have combination skin that is drier in the winter and oilier in the summer, this works for my skin YEAR round! I do love that this product is sulfate free which is a blessing because I've been using this product for about a year and only recently in the past month had learned that sulfates really badly age the skin over time. I was SO surprised that this didn't have sulfates!

I have used many clean and clear products and have never had an issue. This particular one I just purchased a couple days ago and every time i use it, it makes my cheeks BURN LIKE CRAZY! I have even tried using extra moisturizer and the burning continues to last for several minutes. As an avid clean & clear product user, i Will definitely not be purchasing this one again!

My skin had never been so dry

The first time I used it, it dried my skin out SO bad. It turned red, and I could barely even wash the product off because it was so dry. Not to mention the pain and itchiness it gave me. I tried to use it again and it did the same thing. Now it’s just sat in the cabinet for 2 years with barely any used up. Do NOT buy this product unless your skin isn’t sensitive and jab EXTREMELY oily.

I had gotten out of the shower and I dried up and changed into pajamas then went to apply it i applied like usual and when I was almost done my skin began to feel like it was burning and so I tried to wipe as much as I could off then splashed my face with cold water and dabbed the places that hurt most with a damp towel my skin is still a light red because of it
