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

This is the only product that has worked for my adult acne prone skin. However dermadoctor recently changed the packaging and increased the price. You now get less product. It's also I n a glass bottle with a pump, so you can't even get all the product you pay for. I am definitely no longer a fan.

Awesome product

By Mary

from Texas

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

Great product! After 2 months of continuous use my skin is clear, smoothe I love it! I had cystic acne for the last 2 years under the care of a dermatologist and nothing ever worked for me. I remember seeing this face wash at my sister in law bathroom she has the most beautiful skin so I decided to buy it without any hope but after a few days of use my face cleared up, this product is amazing not only did I get rid of my embarrassing acne at age 43 but my skin is better than ever, it's expensive but I will continue buying it. Please give a try and be persistent nothing is going to work over night but after a week of use you will see results.

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

I have purchased this product before and I really like it. However dermadoctor has recently changed from a tube to a glass bottle and it is horrible. The glass bottle is not practical in the shower and I can't even imagine trying to travel with it. I use this with my Claraonic and trying to put cleanser on the brush in the shower is such a pain with the new pump bottle. The bottle is also smaller than the old tube size and I don't think that the price reflects this change in size. I also feel like a lot of cleanser will be lost when the bottle gets close to being empty. I am actually considering returning it to Ulta and getting a product that had a more user friendly bottle. Please dermadoctor go back to the old tube style bottle. (I would only recommended this to a friend if the bottle changed back to the tube).

    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 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.

        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'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.

          1 answer

          • Staff Expert

            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.
