I have been using Clinique Acne Solutions Bar Soap for around 25 years, since back when it still came in the original gray soap dish cases.
Coming from a family with a history of horrible full body acne, I had tried so many different soaps for acne before discovering the Clinique Acne Solutions line of products & Clinique Acne Solutions Bar Soap.
It's the only soap I use & trust. It's wonderful at helping control my acne & breakouts while being mild enough to not dry out or irritate my skin & cause more breakouts like many other brands of acne soaps that have extremely harsh chemicals.
I always buy at least 2 bars at a time so that I always have an extra band new bar on hand.
So that when I get down to the end of 1 bar, I always have a new bar there to use & not have to worry about using another soap that will surely dry out my skin.
But even with using it on my face & body every time I shower, 1 bar lasts for a very long time unlike other bar soaps for acne that run out after a very short time of use.
I tell everyone that it's the only soap I use.
I do & would recommend it to anyone that has acne prone skin & wants an acne soap that will control your acne without being full of harsh chemicals, dying out your skin & making you break out more.
I use this on my body. It is a bit pricey considering I use one bar every two weeks or every week depending if I shower twice a day that week. I like that it has salicylic acid, which treats areas all over my body.

Bought this for my partner because he has acne on the back and upper arms. He has been using it for more than 2 weeks, and we could see improvements! It is a nice soap to have in the bathroom.

Was so excited about this soap after reading reviews, but i guess it's just not my luck - soap didn't fit my skin. Which is I do have pretty oily skin with acne on my back. After a couple times of using it I end up with awful allergy reaction / contact dermatitis. Which is I made sure my skin was moisturized after using the soap. Well, truly another awful experience with Clinique product. Happy if it fit you, well it happens, but sad in the same time.

**Pros: Pleasant mild smell. Cleans well, doesn't overdry skin like some other soap bars. Back acne reduced (about 80% reduced which is pretty great! but didn't eliminate completely). Large painful pimples on back almost completely gone, just have small (non-painful) ones yet to deal with, which is awesome. Case is nice, and having a lid on top really helps it from melting away from shower drip (my soap holder is located right under my showerhead). Gentle enough to use on face. I have combination skin on my face and body and I had no issues with dryness or oiliness.
**Cons: Soap was ineffective in reducing body acne on its own (lathering on hands and applying or applying bar directly on body), but once I started using it with a scrubber, my acne was reduced pretty effectively. Can be used on face but had no effect on reducing facial acne.
Overall, I would recommend, but make sure you're using it on something you can scrub with.

I have always struggled with back acne , so I read all the reviews before I bought this because I have really sensitive skins . I got my bar about a week ago and literally within days I noticed a change . I definitely recommend this product for anyone with body acne . ❣️

Use for washing face and body each day. Does not dry out skin or have an unpleasant scent like other acne soaps/washes.
Veronica from Connecticut
I get back acne and I use this on my shoulders and it really helps I also use it on my face and it really gets rid of oil and I break out less for sure. Great cleanser however I prefer liquid form cleanser so I really just use it on my shoulders more than my face because I already use a liquid cleanser on my face. It is great for oily skinned girls who are prone to acne and it's worth the $

I normally use the foam cleanser but lately she wasnt doing her job. I bought the soap hoping it would help with my acne. Sure enough it did in the first use!!! I saw a huge difference and continue to see my acne improving!!

Literally my favorite cleansing bar! I will continue to use. Has not caused any breakouts to my sensitive skin.
Caroline from MI
I have a small amount of acne on my chest and back that has gotten worse in the summer (probably sweat from the heat). I use this once a day in the shower on those areas. It has made the acne go away a little bit but not completely. I've only been using it for 2 weeks though. I'm gonna stick with it because it has helped me so far!

I love this product! My teenage girls love this product! It was the only thing that worked for their acne on their back. I wish our store would keep selling this bar.

So I purchased this in May and by the end of June I was noticing a difference. BUT over the course of time, for myself at least the soap bar fell apart. It would break off into little pieces and by the end it was mushy and would not hold together. I tried to use for as long as I could but it just got way to mushy and messy. IT WORKED THOUGH. I did see a difference in my chest and back but again the soap bar just fell apart which is why I giving this only 3 stars.

I wet my face first, then I rub the bottom of the bar all over my face, then I rub it in, and lastly I rinse my face and PAT my face dry. And this face wash RRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY clears up my acne.

It keeps my skin in good condition every day.

This is my essential for my first step cleanser. This is way better than the step 1 acne cleansing foam to combat occasional adult, cystic acne. Yes it dries my skin at some point, but I take turn with other milder cleanser from Clinique, whenever my skin become too dry.

Use first to wash, then clarify and the lotion for acne Murad. So happy, result see next day. Skin clean, pore go away. Happy
Jenn from California
As I got older I started getting acne on my back. I have tried this soap for a few days and this has cleared my acne on my back. After washing off the soap my back feel tight and clean. I am so happy this product worked for me. I will continue to keep using. I love that this has no fragrance and is a large soap that comes in a light blue container.

I have never been a fan of Clinique, even as a teen-it's always been too harsh for my oily combo skin. On the verge of being Over the Hill my skin is plagued with red, itchy breakouts, white heads & hormonal cystic acne like you wouldn't believe. Coupled with the notorious hard water that plagues Las Vegas my breakouts are a constant battle. The Cetaphil antibacterial bar I used previously to keep my skin under control was reformulated & it's no longer antibacterial, so I was on a mad quest to find a replacement. I recall back in high school everyone raved about this acne system so I was pleased to see this bar when I pulled it up. Not having anything to lose I ordered. I also threw a filter on my shower.
I have been double cleansing for a few years bw my prior bar & Elemis resurfacing wash and decided to just use this bar upon arrival. Within 2 days my face cleared up & has remained clear. I use this 2-3 times a week & it very works well. Lately I've been breaking out behind my ears and hairline and those pimples cleared up super fast too.
It has a nice lather & creamy feel to it and isn't so harsh my face is snakeskin dry after use. It's tight, which I expected, but my moisturizer corrects that automatically. No fragrance either.
So long as this bar is on the market or I find a better replacement I'll be ordering this. I really cannot believe how quickly my face cleared up. I'm sure the filter helped in expediting this too. I don't care.
I also like I can use this on other areas to clear up acne.
If it's your first try, buy the soap holder. It helps keep the soap safe & free of water washing it away. The bottom has bumps so water doesn't collect & the lid is a perfect shield.
Kimmie from PA
I had a breakout of folliculitis and my dermatologist recommended I use Salicylic acid on my back areas. I used this for like 7 or 8 months, it helped in the beginning. But I started getting pimples more on my break. So I gave this a break and it went away, unfortunately. it makes you squeaky clean though wherever you use it. But didn't help me.

I purchased for a teen who has mild acne on face and shoulders. It's not drying and skin balancing on its own. We have not tried the toner for acne yet.
Happy mom from Lockport IL
I have a teen age boy who has acne on face/chest/shoulders and this works perfect for him! His skin looks tons better!
Summer from Utah
I was very skeptical about this product at first because it is a bar soap which I haven't used in years! However, it has done wonders for my skin! My acne for my face and body has really improved just in the couple of weeks I have been using this product!
Nikki from CT
If you suffer from adult acne, this product is excellent. I have tried every product under the sun and this one gets the job done without stripping the skin. It's much better than the foam cleanser...the foam cleanser dries out the skin. The look and feel of your skin will be transformed for the better in days if not weeks once you start using this product. Couple it with the even better moisturizer, and you will be pleased. I don't like their toners because it contains denatured alcohol and strips the skin. I prefer Eminence toners.
