I have rosacea and dry skin, so this product did tone down my redness and all. I realized my blackheads on my chin became enlarged and I suddenly been getting pimples on my chin and random places, so I believe this product did it. So, I will not be buying it again.
I got this product about 2 months ago. I really loved it at first- I love the scent and it really did help calm my redness a little. It's good for removing makeup, but I really haven't seen an improvement in my acne, which is why I bought the product in the first place. Lately I've noticed that my skin has felt really tight after washing with this product, and I've gotten a dry, flakey patch on my cheek.. nothing a heavier moisturizer can't handle, and I'm sure it's due to the colder weather as well, but annoying nevertheless. I also use this in the shower on my body- back and chest- and I think it's better suited for that than a face wash. I'll finish the botte but I will not be repurchasing.
This is such a great cleanser! I use this in my morning cleansing routine everyday. The smell is so nice, I love it! I love that it is medicated without smelling or feeling medicated. Since I've started using this, I don't get any congested pores anymore and my skin feels really smooth. It doesn't dry out my skin or irritate it. Would definitely recommend this!
I've been using this for quite a while and I honestly cannot tell a difference in my skin at all. It smells really nice and you don't need much to get your face clean. I bought this in June and I'm just now finishing up the bottle, so it's good if you're on a budget.
This is the only drugstore acne product that works for me. I see a huge improvement in pimples whenever I use it. I am currently using Ziana for acne, but I did wear makeup that made me break out and I used this and it was pretty much gone in a day. I use this mostly on my body and it helps so much!
I bought this for about $5 and it comes with quite a lot- so it was a good deal. It has 2% salicylic acid, but didn't do anything for my skin. It's not that it's too gentle because it's quite drying. I don't have severe acne at all but I like using medicated products a few times a week to keep my skin at bay, but this doesn't control anything, nor does it prevent my occasional break outs. It has a pleasant scent, but it's really strong and I'm weird about my skin care products smelling strong because that means more fragrance which doesn't do my any good. If it works for you, it's a great deal, but it simply did not for me.
I really, really wanted this to work for me because it's one of the only inexpensive drugstore acne cleansers that I've been able to find that doesn't test on animals. Unfortunately, it just isn't helping me. I use it to wash my face in the morning, and again at night (after I've used the Green Tea Scrub to remove my make-up). It does make my face feel clean, but it's also drying and hasn't done very much to improve my skin. While I do have fewer breakouts, I am finding that I have more blackheads and small bumps under my skin than I normally do, which isn't much better. I won't be buying this again.
Love this stuff. The scent great, and it doesn't have that harsh acne cleanser smell. It doesn't foam a ton, but it does lather enough to make the washing experience light and refreshing.
It can make your skin a little dry (I have combination skin), but paired with my daily neutrogena facial moisturizer, it is perfect for me.
As intrigued as I was by the green tea part of this cleanser at first, I notice it made me grow little bumps on my cheeks that wouldn't go away with my regular acne treatment.
This seems to clean well, but it's actually a little drying, which isn't good.
I tried using this to remove my mascara/eyeliner, and while the mascara was removed (I use washable), the eyeliner I had to go over with an eye makeup remover later. It was a little drying (I know this is an acne cleanser, but my Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Acne Wash did a fantastic job of removing eye makeup)
The pump points straight, so in order to not get any cleanser stuck on the opening, you have to kind of tilt it as you pump some in your hand, not that convenient.
All in all, I do NOT recommend this cleanser to anyone, it doesn't really do anything for my acne. Despite the cheaper price, I'd stick with whichever acne brand that works for you, for me, Neutrogena.
This is the cleanser I am currently using. I have been using it for only a week. I'll tell you this much about it, since I have only been using it for such a limited amount of time: it is effective at removing all of the makeup I wear, and I wear a ton of makeup. It takes 2 pumps, but it gets the job done. It smells nice. It is soothing and reduces redness associated with blemishes to a small degree. It is really too early to tell if it has diminished my blemishes or if they're just healing on their own, and it is too early to tell if breakouts occur less often as well. I will update this as I use the product. This product is definitely non-irritating for me, and I have fairly sensitive skin. I like this and am happy with it, especially since it is a drugstore cleanser.
UPDATE: I have been using this product for a few weeks now, and my breakouts have all cleared. The red marks left behind from old acne have diminished to a small degree, and I am hoping this cleanser will help continue to diminish them even more. I am still very happy with this cleanser.
