            My friend recommended this wash to me two yrs ago and i will always he grateful to her because my self esteem went wayyy down after acne kicked in around age 13. And after spending so much on every facewash invented, this face wash literally tops every one of them! You can see changes after the first time! And everytime i buy this it last me at least two months max two and a half. So its great and I think this is where teens with acne should begin, i wish i knew about it.

                I first used this a year ago after a sports season when my face was breaking out. My forehead was covered in tiny pimples. I started using this twice a day and my forehead cleared up completely! Switched to a less breakout-oriented cleanser afterwards and was fine. I purchased it again this summer when I was experiencing another bad breakout and it worked just as well! I like to use it for shoulder/back acne also.

                        This cleanser will help however you will also need to exfoliate and use an absorbing masque to clear up skin. Clear Start Blackhead Clearing Pore Control Scrub can be used as a scrub and masque 3-5 times a week.

                        This cleanser would be great for your skin condition however, you will need to use it as part of a system and be consistent with it. We recommend also using Daily Superfoliant, Skin Refining Masque and Breakout Control to treat breakouts. Ultra Calming Mist and Active Moist will help to keep your skin from becoming dehyrated.

                        Thank you for your question. Anyone can use it as long as their skin is oily and acneic. If you're not oily and only have a few breakouts I would recommend using Special Cleansing Gel along with a spot treatment to treat your breakouts, such as the Breakout Control which won't dry your skin out. I hope you find this helpful and if you have any further questions please don't hesitate to ask.

                        Thank you for your inquiry. Both of these cleansers contain salicylic acid. Foaming Wash from our teen line will be slightly more hydrating and have more botanicals to sooth and calm the skin. They are both foaming gel cleansers.
