    Comments about Dermadoctor Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser:

    I love this face cleaner!! However, I'm disappointed with a few things. First the new bottle, its now glass, which is not ideal for the shower or for travel. Plus there is less product than before, 6oz compared to the prior 7oz AND they raised the price $3.00. I love this cleaner and have used it for for about 7 years, however, I'm not sure I will keep buying it.

    I've always loved the product, it's the only product that controls my adult acne. I just HATE that they changed from a tube to a glass bottle with pump. The glass bottle is heavy and the pump doesn't always work. Please got back to the original packaging!!!!

      I was hopeless nothing worked on my cystic acne, I'm 42 and had more acne than my 2 teenagers, I was desperated and decided to try this face wash. I notice a difference on my skin after a week. My skin was in bad shape after 4 weeks of used I'm pleased to say that my skin is clear I have one pimple left. After a year trying to clear my skin I'm very happy with the results. I will buy it again. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

        Comments about Dermadoctor Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser:

        This product is the only item that helps with break outs on my chin and cheeks. The packaging changed from 8 oz. tube to 7 oz. glass bottle with pump. MAJOR FAIL!!! 1) When I received the item (twice) there was a ton of cleanser that leaked. 2) The pump stopped working after 2 months!! 3) There is no way to get out the last of the cleanser from the bottle. This is so inconvenient on a product that is great. There also has not been a price reduction for less product. Very disappointed in the packaging changes.

          I've been trying to clear my acne for the last 4 months, I tried everything over the counter as well as prescription creams without success nothing helped me so I decided to try this face wash without high expectations, well let me tell you in two weeks 80% of my cystic acne is gone, I love this face wash and I'm planning to continue buying it. It's expensive but is worth every penny. What I do is follow the instructions and leave it on my skin a few minutes and then rinse. I'm grateful for this product! And would like to try the other products on the future. My face was a mess, cystic acne was very itchy and painful this face wash won't work over night but with regular use it will help you.

          It was really hard for me to pay this much for a cleanser, but as of right now I'm happy I did. My skin appears to be clearing up after just a week of using it. I do have dry skin and it doesn't help with that but that was to be expected with an acne cleanser. I've tried many other cleansers which haven't worked nearly as well as this has in the short amount of time I've been using it. It recommends using twice a day, but I've been using once a day to not dry my skin out and it is still working well. Good purchase so far!!

            I have bi-polar skin. I have rosacea. I break out. I sometimes have oily skin and sometimes I have dry flaky skin. I worked as a skincare lead at another popular beauty supply department. I swear by this stuff. I feel like it finds my skins happy balance. Surprisingly I use it almost everyday and it doesn't make my rosacea flare. It leaves my face feeling supple and smooth. Note: Follow directions and apply to a DRY face first.

              I'm trying to find a good cleanser for my boyfriend. He's is 26 and has acne, oily skin, and gets real dry after he washes his face. What would be a good product recommendation for him?

                A:

                Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser would be the cleanser we'd suggest for those with blemish-prone, oily skin. Unlike some traditional acne facial washes, this one contains hydrating and soothing ingredients to help counteract dryness, so it's a great option for him based on your description of his skin type, condition, and concerns.

            • Q:

              I'm currently trying to find a product that will help clear up these red/brown marks on my face left from past blemishes & I was wondering what product I should buy to clear up the marks & if this is a product that would help clear them up? I don't break out as much anymore just a few bumps on my forehead & chin but for the most part the rest of my skin is smooth, it's just the marks left behind from past breakouts.

                The Ain't Misbehavin' line is to prevent acne. The Kakadu C line is best to clear hyperpigmentation.

                This cleanser is the perfect option for you, since it is soap-free, non-drying, and pH-balanced. DermaDoctor states that it is suitable for most skin types.

                A:

                Yes, you can! The only type of cleanser to avoid when using a cleansing brush is one containing any exfoliating particles (such as scrubs), as this could over-exfoliate the skin and cause irritation.
