Help! Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser: Is It A Cleanser Or A Spot Treatment?clean and clear continuous control cleanser spot treatment help acne

I was wondering what your opinion on what the purpose of Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser should be? I know it has "cleanser" in the name and in the directions it says to wash off face, but this website seems to say otherwise. When looking at the reviews of the product on this website, it lists it as an "Acne/Spot Treatment". This is a big difference in what a cleanser is and, according to Acne.org's regimen, you are supposed to gently rub an acne/spot treatment into the skin and leave it on for the rest of the day, whereas a cleanser you are supposed to leave on for less than 10 seconds before thoroughly rinsing it off.
Should I use Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser as a cleanser or an acne/spot treatment?!? This is important because if I use the product wrong, it appears I will be making my acne worse (leaving on for 10 seconds then rinsing is a BIG difference to rubbing into skin and leaving on entire day!)
Thanks and let me know!!!!

The product actually does not have any of those ingredients listed. The active ingredients is Benzoyl Peroxide (10%), while the inactive ingredients are:
- C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate
- Mineral Oil
- Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer
- Titanium Dioxide
Not sure what any of that means though haha

On a sidenote, 10% seems to be very high strength. Do try to find formulas with 2.5% first and try that out as some research that I've read showed that there isn't much difference between the two, but significant less dryness.

No regimen is one-size-fits-all. You are unique and so is your skin.
Black soap - Lumiplexion Salicylic Acid ~ Lumiplexion SPF 30 ~ Lumiplexion moisturizer
Black soap ~ Lumiplexion Glycolic Acid 12% (3-4x week) ~ Lumiplexion Hydroquinone 1-2x week
Lumiplexion enzyme mask / sulfur mask / moisturizing mask 1-2 week as needed
