I picked up this cleanser maybe a month ago and i will definitely be repurchasing. the AHA in it has done wonders for my acne scars, and it doesn't dry out my skin at all (i do use a moisturizer afterwards, of course). Salicylic acid does not kill acne bacteria, but it will help those with clogged pores. I use this along with neutrogenas rapid clear daily mask with benzoyl peroxide, which does kill acne bacteria. together they have dramatically improved my skin!

The product is pretty soft on the skin but does not work at all

On the top of my bottle it says " results in just 1 day " is a lie. Had it for 2 weeks & see no results, just more red pimples. Might work for some people but i dont think it works , dont waste your money. I recommend the alcohol pads they have , ive had them before & they WORK. I just wanted to try something new. Im going back to the pads.

this product works pretty well

I honestly think this is a good product but if you do sports make sure that you clean your face because i play field hockey and the googles we have to wear are just ruining our skin by the second. this isn't something that quickly works but it does clear them and make them alot smaller then they were!!

Doesn't work

I tried this product every week twice a day and it had no difference on my face I wouldn't recommend, however it may work on some people

Bad product
Reviewed on April 20, 2014

After using this product for about two weeks red hard pimples that hurt and were big were on my cheeks and chin

After I stopped using it it became smaller.

Does anyone think the bar of dove soap is good to wash with?

I have all red pimples big and small only on my cheeks and chin and nose and tried everything!!

Someone like me please help!

Ugh I have the same problem!! Try a gentle cleanser like Cetaphil or African black soap because it will calm the skin . african black soap is good for acne scars and breakouts
Love this product!

I adore this product! I use this product twice a day both morning and night, and even though it is gentle it works really good. I have oily/acne prone skin and it is not too drying for my skin. After one use of washing my face with this, my face was so soft, and it does everything it says on the bottle

This is probably my favorite cleanser right now. When I use it, I cover my entire face and leave it on for at least a minute in the morning, maybe three minutes at night (almost like a mini mask). It makes your skin feel tingly, in a good way! I used this with my Proactiv Solution system, and found that it worked even better together. Also, this product seemed to hydrate my skin, not dry it out like others mentioned. My skin felt so smooth after the first use, I was shocked. Really, I think it is worth a try.

How would you use it with your Proactiv? I just bought this product but still have Proactiv and I have moderate acne but I needed something new.
