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!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Can be effective
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.

stylebystella from undisclosed
I bought this as part of a set to help clear breakouts. I like the way it feels - cooling to the skin. It's also lathers very easily. I think it's working on healing breakouts, it's just a slow process and doesn't happen over night.
Works as part of a good acne fighting routine
CC from Houston, Texas
I first purchased this as part of the Effaclar kit which I found to be a bit drying using 3 products together. Then I purchased a full sized cleanser. I like it to use as a spot treatment in areas where I get breakouts. It should only be used once a day because it can be drying. Anytime you use an acne treatment you are going to get dryness. So follow up with a good face oil and night cream or a hyaluronic acid moisturizer for day. Also you don't need to use a whole lot so a full size should last for months. It is very effective at treating acne but shouldn't be the only tool in your skincare regimen.
Caused a horrible allergic reaction
User from Seattle
This product caused one of the worst allergic reactions on my face I've ever experienced. Do not use this product if you have sensitive skin, as it will cause redness, swelling, burning, and itching.
Too strong to be used twice a day
Caitlin from Detroit
I gave this cleanser a solid 5 weeks of use, started once a day then led to twice a day. There was definitely a purging period but using it twice a day left my skin very dull and dry. If you are sensitive and acne prone like I am, only use this cleanser once a day or a few times a week. 4 stars because IT IS effective for clearing acne!
Gentle cleanser, good for
samanthadelph from undisclosed
Gentle cleanser, good for daily use. I use this to remove final traces of makeup or oil before using a 10% benzoyl peroxide mask. Does seem to help with the appearance of scaring, but I did not notice a dramatic difference in the treatment of active spots/whiteheads. Works well enough but not worth the price tag.
Fblanco96 from Georgia
I had a white head for over a month UNTIL I bought this cleanser. I used it for two weeks and the white head left on its own! This is the perfect cleanser for oily or combo skin.
love it love it love it + TIP
mia from new jersey
it was working okay when i first got it. now, i wet my face thoroughly with warm water, and squeeze a dime sized amount on my fingertips. i then "activate it" by just rubbing my fingers together and gently work it into my skin using circles, which takes about a minute or two. within two days of this method, i noticed a difference in my skin. it was glowing, and many of my little dark spots (sebaceous filaments) had been cleaned out. if you have oily skin that gets those lil dark pore things, get this and try this technique.
The perfect face wash

roannr from undisclosed
the best moisturizer i used. It goes along way even you apply only a pea size. i ised this also to my daughter skin because she has a very sensitive skin. A little expensive but it's worth it…
Product is okay
S from Mass
Been using for over two months. I break out more on my chin and cheeks from wearing a mask, and my skin has fewer pimples. I still break out, but there are less pimples. Can feel a bit stripping so I only use it once a day. No significant change
So far so good.
Yes from USA
Bought this last month, because while I'm refining my skincare routine, I don't have a set cleanser. I'm hormonal acne prone. I'll say for the first week and half it purged me. Now that it's over my skin doesn't have any new breakouts. Others say it leave them really dry. I double cleanse with the tourmaline purifying cleaner for oily skin so I expect to be dry. I just follow up with a alpha Arbutin and vitamin c. Good for acne skin.
Holy grail foaming face wash
kellyc from AZ
I usually stay away from foaming face washes because I have extremely dry, sensitive skin. But when my acne started to return I needed something to treat it effectively. This really is a great but gentle exfoliator and makes my skin super smooth without over drying.
I really enjoy this
tinaaa_marieee from undisclosed
I really enjoy this face wash! It provides a great amount of deep cleaning without any harsh scrubs in it. There is no smell, and lathers nicely.
It's a great every
liamc12 from undisclosed
It's a great every day morning gentle cleanser with 2% salicylic acid. I definitely would only use it once a day.￼
Made my skin super dry
jess from west covina
Did not like this product. I was hoping it would work since I've been having breakouts due to maskne but instead made my skin dryer and made me break out worse. Ive been using for 2 weeks and have not seen a difference in my skin. Do not purchase if you have dry skin already.

I bought this for my preteen daughter to use for her breakouts. It has been working to keep new breakouts at bay. It also doesn't dry out her face.
The best cleanser I've ever tried
Bb from Los Angeles, Ca
I've tried so many cleansers and they either made my acne worse or didn't do anything at all. I decided to give this one a try and I saw results within a few days. Finally a cleanser that gave me results!! Definitely recommend for anyone with sensitive skin + struggling with acne. It's gentle but it can be drying so always make sure you're hydrating your skin and using a good moisturizer. 10/10 :)
Left my skin dry and scaly feeling
Zaria from Philadelphia,Pa
I've used this for about a month hoping to see good results since I've been hearing such great reviews. I have really bad acne prone skin and when I was using this I wasn't really seeing any changes and eventually I was noticing how my skin (specifically around my mouth and neck was so dry and it felt like I could peel it off. If anything this product made my skin worse. Definitely would not recommend.
Jess from New jersey
I have sensitive oily skin, and deal with breakouts every week or so. Unfortunately this stuff made my skin super dry, and my pores appeared even larger than they are now. I've probably given this product about 3 different tries over the span of 2 years, but my skin just doesn't seem to like it. Even going without washing my face in the morning and just at night, and using a good moisturizer, it just messes with my skin barrier. I don't think it's a good product for sensitive skin.
I have nothing bad
mariahd5 from undisclosed
I have nothing bad to say about this product. Only good things. My skin breaks out to just about anything i use of my skin. I started using this and another one of their face washes and it has dramatically helped my skin. I will definitely be buying more of this product and trying more from this brand
Cannot Recommend Enough
Em from Bowling Green
I saw results from this product within a week, and within 2 weeks, my acne was gone! So worth the money!!
I love this product

I love this product is a non comendonal product it doesn't close your pores it has salicylic acid that helps not clog pores
Drying and leave me with breakouts
Clearer Skin Please from USA
I'm 29 and I have oily skin. This cleanser dried. Me. Out. I had a bunch of flaky skin on my cheeks and nose. I tried to give it a while for my skin to adjust, about two months, but I never seemed to balance out. Using this also accentuated fine lines on my face. I also had more blackheads and small pimples all over my face while using this product. I switched back to my old face wash a few days ago which isn't perfect but is better for my skin than this gel wash. Within just a few days, my fine lines have smoothed out because of the aha in the product. I'm glad this worked for others, it just wasn't compatible with my skin.
Use it Every Night - My Favorite!
Mari from Berkshires, Massachusetts
I use this just about every night. I am 33 and have oily/combo skin with very large easily clogged pores, so I need something to keep that under control. It doesn't strip my skin of moisture, just gets into the pores and does a good job of degunking the top layer.
