Most Helpful Positive Review BEST CLEANSER OUT THERE
I am 30 years old and y skin decided to act up - I got horomonal cystic acne for a few months. Tried everything on drugstores and nothing worked. went to see a derm and got some prescription and didn't really work either. My co-worker told me about thi brand and decided to buy the acne kit. This fixed my skin soooooo quick is unreal. This is my second bottle and I couldn't be happier... control my oily skin and cleans it super good. I have been on these products for 3 months and my skin is soft, my pores/skin looks better and have not had a breakout, just when it;s that time of the month... I will continue to use this brand forever!!!

I would use this as a beginners face wash and for teen boys and up (unless they had severe acne). The first couple of weeks my skin kinda dried up so I had to reduce to once a day or once every few days until I had built up tolerance. But that's only because in the winter my skin dries out easily so I wouldn't call this a drying cleanser. I have sensitive combo skin, dry in winter and oily in summer. These past few weeks I've been noticing a bunch of little bumps on the outer parts of my forehead, above the outer edge of the brow. And I stopped using makeup to just clean my pores, I am not a regular makeup wearer even so my acne still hasn't gone away. To me it seems as if nothing has changed but the larger pimples have gone. So I would recommend this product to those without much acne or pimples since it's a save(deal) and it's easy to use.

I've used this product for two years now, nothing helped until I tried this one
Really like this!!
tori from Chicago, IL
The price point of this product is awesome. After washing it off it leaves my skin feeling so SOFT and after only a couple weeks I've seen an improvement in my acne :) my only qualm is that the second ingredient is sodium laureth sulfate but other than that...love!
Big no from USA
I finally had all of my acne cleared up until I started getting one or two pimples from wearing a mask all day. I decided to find a cleanser to help that and brought this one. This literally ruined all of my months of hard work to clear my skin. I'm now dealing with redness and huge painful pimples all over my jawline, cheeks and chin. I definitely regret using this product. :(
Dried out skin
Candice from USA
It made the skin around my mouth dry and flaky. My skin does tend to be more on the dry side around there and I didn't notice any dryness in my t zone area which is usually more oily, so maybe this is more for someone with oily skin.
Such a good product
Anna from wisconsin
I use this every morning and night and it feels so cleansing.
Good for OILY SKIN!!
Maggie from LA
This is a great facial cleanser for oily skin. Do NOT use it if you have normal or dry skin! Onto the review; it worked very well for my oily skin. Dried out all the pimples and helped them stay away. Even got rid of those stubborn cystic acne blemishes I would get during my period. I did notice that it did dry my skin out a bit, which is fine because I have oily skin. But I use it only at night so that my skin isn't overly dry and I follow up with a basic moisturizer. I think using this twice a day is overkill
Contact Dermatitis from DECYL GLUCOSIDE
Rachel S from New York
I really wanted to like this product but after two days after using this cleanser I started getting snall red bumps on my face. I hadn't added any other new products to my skin care routine and the products I'm currently using I've been using for years. I believe I developed contact dermatitis from this cleanser. I looked at the ingredient list and the third ingredient DECYL GLUCOSIDE has been shown to cause allergic reactions and dermatitis. I don't have particularly sensitive skin... I would be careful with this product. Definitely do a patch test before putting it on your entire face.

Amber from USA
Works amazing with my sensitive skin. I use this at night along with toner and spot treatment from the brand. Doesn't dry my skin out and saw results the next day!

This product has been amazing for my teenagers. It is one of the only things that they have tried and worked on their hormonal type acne!
Not cruelty free
Jullie from undisclosed
This worked for me but I'm going to start purchasing cruelty free products so unfortunately I don't think I'll purchase again since its not cruelty free.
Sglz from Wyominv
I really wanted to like this product and I hoped it would help but it made my acne worse. I gave it some time because obviously my skin needed to adjust and I thought it was just the purging stage but it continued to stay bad and get worse. As soon as I stopped using it, my skin went back to how it was before I started using it (which wasn't great but 10x better than with this)

This product does a great job drying out my breakouts, without drying my entire face!
Amazing Acne and Oil Face Wash
smardell24 from undisclosed
This wash has really helped my acne. I also am very oily around my nose and forehead so that's also helped with my acne. The only thing I would say is that not to use the wash too much in the places where it's not as oily. For instance, around my mouth and under my nose have all really dried.
NZ from South Gate
I can't stress how much I love this cleanser. I have tried every "Hiram-approved" cleansers and they never seemed to work for me. I struggle with acne, blackheads, and whiteheads. This product has seriously helped to smooth out my skin texture. My acne is disappearing and my blackheads being less noticeable. I can understand when people says it's drying but honestly if you use hydrating products afterwards it should be fine. To be honest the only acne product you need it this one cause it does all the work.
Great for adult acne!

Love this cleanser!! I have adult acne, at 47 years old. It has become a mainstay in my regime!
Best face wash
Savannah Nathalie from Fort Carson, CO
I've never had bad acne but lately my skin has been terrible. I've only been using this for two days with the ordinary toner, aha bha peel, and the hyaluronic acid and my skin cleared up in those two days! My skin tone is more even and bright as well. Definitely buy this and try it out.
Jen from Rosemead CA
This facial cleanser is soooo good. I developed serious acne and I needed a good face wash this one really helped clear up my skin. It is mainly for people with acne because it's high in salicylic acid
sherrycat from NJ
I have extremely reactive and sensitive skin prone to redness and oiliness. I didn't have a reaction to this cleanser and I'm always reactive to most cosmetic products. After cleansing, the face feel so refreshed and clean! I feel like my oiliness is decreased also...not sure if niacinamide has something to do with it, but the combo together has helped with oiliness.
Oily-Sensitive-Red Cheeks-Scarred Skin
Alyssa V from Weslaco,TX
I enjoy this cleanser very much. I've tried different cleansers from Olay to Drunk Elephant and those haven't worked as well as this one for my blackheads and scars. I did notice more pimples form 2 days after using it but I did my research and found out my skin was purging. Getting rid of the gunk from deep in my skin. I have noticed after two weeks that my scars are getting better but it's not an over night miracle! I do recommend that if you purchase this product get a very hydrating moisturizer! It is very important to moisturize after because it does dry the skin a bit!
Sharon C from undisclosed
Honestly this changed my life. I'd been going from absolutely no acne/blemishes to having painful acne. This product has really helped clear up my skin and keep any more acne at bay. I love it!

Great for teenage skin and the occasional breakout
Sunshine from Washington
Our teenage sons use this cleanser regularly and have great skin as a result. When they stopped using it when they ran out it was obvious. They have been using it since.
I'm a few weeks in
Dani from NY
So I started to get this horrific hormonal acne and a friend recommended this brand to me... it's definitely started to clear everything up. This doesn't help with the dark spots left after the acne and you need a good moisturizer for after. Would recommend!
