This cleanser is fairly gentle and inexpensive, but it just doesn't get the job done. It probably won't make your skin worse, but it's not going to help you either, unless you've only got mild breakouts/blackheads. If you have sensitive skin, I'd stay away because this was slightly drying.
Not recommended for moderate acne. It also won't help with any cysts.
I have moderate to severe acne so there arent many products ive come across that are gentle enough to use on my sensitive skin but strong enough to clear my skin. right now i am on an antibiotic that helps greatly but doesnt do the job completely without a topical treatment. when i first sought professional help for my acne bout 2 years ago i started using a product sample of aqua glycolic cleanser along with epiduo cream which worked wonderfully on my skin by clearing it completely to the point where it had become poreless and glowing but i eventually could not afford the price of the epiduo because of an issue with insurance and was unable to find the aqua glycolic cleanser. i was then left with the option of going back to an over the counter cleanser. ive tried most drug store cleansers which all claim to help acne but ironically have ingredients in them that are bad for acne prone skin. however when i came across Aveeno foaming clear complexion cleanser it specifically stated it wouldn't clog pores, was soap free, oil free, and hypoallergenic. They were all things that are recommended for you to look for on any product you buy for acne prone skin. I gave it a try and it has become my favorite cleanser to this day. In fact even the facial scrub is good too. although i wouldn't recommend using that particular one every day. 0.5 % salicylic acid isn't enough to clear skin completely but makes the product gentle enough to use regularly. please try if you are having trouble finding a product that addresses all your needs in a cleanser for your skin because this is totally worth the try.
l started using this product when l was about eleven years old (when l began to get acne). The cleanser burned slightly, but when l washed it off, the two whitehead l had prior to applying the face wash was reduced to nothing! c:
However, as l grew older, my acne grew tougher. l don't see any significant effect it has on my stubborn acne anymore.
lt still makes my skin glow and look smoother, though! So, l'd recommend it to people who have very mild to mild acne.
I have used two bottles so far, and I'm planning on buying it again after finishing the other cleansers I bought. It's a really soft, fluffy and fun foam. It's typically easy to get out, minus the occasional pump jams. It was my first ever cleanser (When I was 11, I think) and when I first used it, it burned like fire. I nearly cried from the pain. Hey, hey my skin was young and sensitive when I was in Grade 5. I threw it away when it was about 3/4 done, since I couldn't stand the sting, even though it soothed down as I continued to use it. After I went through so much pain, I didn't notice how clear my skin has gotten (besides my war-zone of a forehead) I love this product, and there's not really another product that I tried that foams like this.
I have been using this product for years, and I really do like it. I prefer using it during the summer months because it is a bit drying, I make sure to always follow up with a moisturizer! It leaves your skin feeling nice and clean, but does little to help acne. If used in conjunction with other acne products (such as benzoyl peroxide) you would have better results.
It helps clear up light to almost NO acne. I wouldn't suggest this to people who have severe or moderate acne. Althiugh it is slightly (look you guys only a bit) drying. It eaves your face feeling amazing!!!!! Fresh, clean, clear, and bright... I TOTALLY recommend this product to anyone who has no, very light, or light acne... it defnietly does clean your face, andn it claims all the things it says it does.
Foaming cleansers are my favorite because I feel like I am getting a deep down clean that washes away all grime on my face. Aveeno's foaming cleanser goes on gentle and lathers quite nice. I use one to two pumps for my whole face and neck area. I always remember to get the neck area because it's as equally important as the rest of my face. Neglecting that area can cause breakouts along the jawline and on neck. This can be very unattractive for girls if you wear your hair up often. Foaming cleansers are the best at lathering everywhere for a deep down clean. I don't think I could live without this cleanser in my regimen.
