This product works wonders! I'm sorry this is so much to read but I seriously believe you'll be glad you read it once you do. This is my 3rd time using it in 2 days and I'm in love, I've been so excited about a product to write a review and I honestly NEVER WRITE REVIEWS for anythinggggg ever. So PLEASE read this if your face is OILY OR DRY!! Most people may think oil on your face is ok? I thought it was, then I found out that oil means your face is dehydrated!!!! So if you have dry skin at all on your face or oil, I definitely recommend this!! My usual routine to wash my face is either just wipe off oil with lukewarm washcloth or in the shower biore charcoal. With those alone my face was soo dehydrated. But everything else I tried made my face worse and worse. Now I just put this on after I wash my face. This moisturizer I've used 3 times, my face finally feels the way it should. Soft and not oily/greasy. The patches of dry skin are completely gone, my face isn't shiny and doesn't itch anymore! The dry skin was driving me insane!! I'm not even being dramatic, it was so itchy that I was scratching my face in my sleep without even knowing it. I also had a horrible amount of oversized pores filled with oil and dirt on my nose and t-zone, they're soo much cleaner and smaller. Before washing my face(while nothing cleaned it properly) was a chore. Now I'm excited to wash my face every morning and night! I have sensitive combination skin, very dry, and this is amazing... It smells like a clean lotion, I really like it. It has a tingly/cooling sensation, let's you know it's cleaning and moisturizing! But don't get it on your eyelids.. It doesn't hurt but the cooling sensation doesn't go away for a while. Your skin also absorbs it right away, After I wash my face I use 3-4 full squirts and rub my hands together and apply to my entire face.... And it prevents pimples?! This is thee confidence booster, I'm so serious.. I feel gorgeous now, I honestly feel the happiest I ever have with the complexion of my face. It's gentle enough to use everyday too. And my boyfriend noticed that after just one use, my face was clearer. I usually don't believe reviews when they say after one use you can notice a difference, but now I can believe them because this is one of those products. I'm beyond happy with this product! I wish I could give it more stars!!

After a lifetime of acne & using 10% benzoyl peroxide, my skin was finally starting to dry & clear a bit, when I began to use retinol, which promptly began to make my skin flake AND break out again. Starting on Hormone Replacement soon after didn't help with the breakouts, I guess. Anyway, I saw some good reviews of this product, & it was on sale at the supermarket, so I bought a bottle. PROS: works very well on the flakiness of my skin...& I think the salicylic acid is helping heal my breakouts. Also, this stuff is SUPER CHEAP! $5-6 dollars for a BIG bottle! CON: NO SPF sunscreen! Wish it had 15% at least.

I read a couple of reviews about this product and everyone says "wow its amazing" "It doesn't break me out" .... so i decided to try it out. WOW! my forehead was with those little pimples that you cant even notice so i try it one night. I wake up the next morning-- GONE! everything was gone. The best part of it is that it leaves your skin feeling so soft and fresh. THIS REALLY WORKS AND DOES NOT BREAK OUT! I LOVE IT!

As an adult in my 40's, I struggle with acne and also need to care for aging skin. I have tried numerous expensive products for acne control but their moiturizers leave my skin dry and dull. I was amazed by this product. It keeps my skin clear while providing a level of softness I did not find in the expensive brands. And, it might be my imagination, but I swear this lotion actually provides firmness for my sagging skin. My face has not looked this good in years. I can't believe I spent all that money and the answer I was looking for was on the shelf in my grocery store, and the price is so reasonable! Thank you Clean & Clear!!

I am 35, female, with combination skin (oily forehead/nose, dry jawline/chin), having suffered acne since early teens. While other Salicylic Acid treatments start to clear my complexion, I always end up with severe dry skin before achieving a *comfortable* appearance, inevitably having to "discontinue use". Followed by a new, sometimes worse, breakout. A frustrating, confidence degrading cycle. I purchased the Dual Action Moisturizer ($6.69 at Target) after literally scanning the facial care isle for over a half hour debating, "Oh what shall I try next?" I was hesitant to use it, since the Deep Cleaning Sensitive Skin Astringent left my skin too dry, despite it (like the Dual Action Moisturizer) has a low 0.5% Salicylic Acid. But with the Dual Action being a treatment AND "moisturizer" combined, I took a chance that night. And by morning, saw a POSITIVE turn in my skin! That just keeps improving, using it only *once* a day in the evenings! My skin feels HEALTHIER, and looks smoother. And though my forehead still produces a'lotta oil, pimples AND swollen bumps have been reduced drastically. Within two days! With no signs of that horrible drying cycle reappearing. Even the horrible itching from a previous treatment product, GONE! And, I can now apply powder mineral foundation (not that I need to now) without it enhancing what were drier areas of my face as flake'ie. Clean & Clear, thank you!! --- pros: very light fragrance (great for sensitive allergies) that's not at all irritating; lightweight, and absorbs with incredible ease; leaves a REFRESHING, tingling, almost cooling sensation (notably in the drier areas, like you can feel your skin finally heal); great for sensitive skin that tends to dry out with 2% Salicylic Acid treatments; safe ingredients, no SLSs or parabens. cons: does not clear up larger pimples/swollen bumps overnight, but does reduce them by at least half within 48 hours (I expect those to disappear altogether within the week); no SPF protection (good as a night treatment)

I had very dry skin on my face, I decided to purchase this product after watching a youtube video about this product. When I applied it, it made my skin feel fresh, clean, and cool.

I never used a moisturizer before since i have oily skin, but i decided to try this since it said it was oil free and treats pimples. I got SO much more than I expected! It clears up my face in like, one day, and it left my skin GLOWING!! Also, i have these weird lines on my forhead even though im only 23, I figured i would just have them forever, but they dissapeared after just a few days of using this!! I totally recomend it especially if you have oily skin like me!!
