It burned my face. I look like I got fried!

So I bought this a week ago. Worst decision of my life.:smileys_n_people_15: Thought of trying this since I found good reviews online. Now I'm super oily....with red bumps and inflammation. My skin has rejected it. 

I've now ordered my usual saviour in these situations. The divinely blessed Clinique anti blemish foam face wash to rescue me. I'll never stop using it. It's the best.

Sorry are going in the trash.

Yeah, these types of products are pretty harsh on the skin actually. From reading online, they're considered "first line" therapies because they're over the counter but most doctor's I've spoken with aren't very excited about it. Basically, they're grouped into two types of products - acids and bases, very mild on the spectrum of acids and bases, but still dry the heck out of your skin. Better to look for a solution that's more targeted to keeping your pores open and clean rather than dissolving the oil off of there IMO. Definitely there's much better products that you can still get online that don't require a prescription

Itchy & dry
This product is definitely not for people with sensitive skin. I used it one night and the next day my skin was itchy and left dry as ever for the next week. Had to take antihistamines for it to get better.

Used for quite awhile and did nothing.
Did nothing for me.

Differences between the two?
Would anyone say that this one and the original orange colored one are the same? I have the orange one and I'm seeing results and it's been about three days (I'm a previous user of this product) and like everyone else it dries out my already dry skin, around the mouth chin area. The only difference I can tell from the products is that the pink one comes with a moisturizer... any body tried both?

Do not recommend
I fortunately do not have bad acne, and this product seemed light and easy on the face. I have sensitive-ish skin on my face. The first two days of using this product, my skin seemed fine. But this morning I woke up to super dry, cracking skin around my nose and tiny red bumps all around my mouth and chin, forming an almost mustache like rash. The bumps itch and burn like crazy, and the dry skin isn't a treat either. I thought my other face wash was was bad until I purchased this. I stopped using it immediately and I definetly will not be purchasing this product again. Straight in the trash can!

I also do not have acne but I purchased this because I hear it is amazing. I had the same reaction and still recovering. I have bumps over my lips and the irritation on my skin I break out in a couple of hive like bumps. I thought that maybe bcos it is for acne and that I do not have I am over simulating my face causing this irritation

horrible product
i've suffered from mild acne my whole childhood and nothing has ever worked. so i decided to give this a try. absolutely the worst decision i've ever made. it was working the first few washes and then it just started to sprial downhill. it would start to burn so bad while i was washing my face. so i thought to myself well if it's tingling it's working. so the first few washes with burning i did nothing. but then i noticed my face was beyond dry. it was super red and peeling. i couldn't believe it. i have had super oily skin my whole life and it completely dried my skin out. i began peeling on my cheeks chin forehead nose almost everywhere on my face. i have never been so disappointed in all my life. this ruins your face and i definitely do not recommend this product at all.

I bought the neutrogena oil- free acne wash about 3 weeks ago, I never had a major problem with acne but I did get a few spots on my forehead frequently... So after starting to use the face wash my spots did clear, but after washing my face with it twice a day for a few weeks I have had more breakouts than I've ever had, my skin is dry (I used to suffer oily skin) and the face wash would burn the spots on my face and cause them to scab and scar... I will no longer be using the face wash a and I recommend others do not use it either

The only cleanser I use
I started using this when my dermatologist recommended it to me about 4 years ago when I was 15. My skin was absolutely terrible and it truly did work for a while. Even now, 4 years ago, I still use it every day twice a day because It doesn't break me out more but since I've been using it for so long it doesn't help much either. It's ok for me until. I find something else

They say to change your face wash every 6 months because you get immune to it

This product worked great the first couple of days or so, but then it was all downhill from there. As mentioned per other reviews, this product will make your skin very very dry. It made my face feel tighter, and began to burn my forehead. It made by mouth region super dry and itchy and it become very painful to move my mouth at all. I immediately stopped using this product. Fire would make a better product than this.
