This is hands down the best cleanser I have ever used in my entire life. Certainly HG cleanser. I've used many exfoliating cleansers meant for acne, and though some have been quite good (ie/ neutrogena acne stress control power scrub cleanser), none has ever removed tiny dirt from clogged pores the way that this does. For years, I would exfoliate and afterwards, I'd manually remove dirt from larger pores but now this cleanser does it all on its own. Thanks to Clean&Clear for this amazing product.
