This is definitely the best facial cleanser for me. I used it a few summers ago and ended up having beautiful skin by the end of the summer, which hadn't happened since I was 12. Unfortunately, I stopped and it was a very slow slope downward as I tried to find something even better (I stopped because I was also using two other products that I felt had too much of a chemical presence to continue daily, which I will mention in a moment).
I wash my face with this twice a day, but at night a wash with Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash first to get rid of all my makeup so my face wash works better. I then use this and massage it in really well, leaving it set for about 15 seconds or more before rinsing. Afterward, I follow it with just a simple Neutrogena Healthy Skin Lotion with AHA. I SHOULD then use a sunscreen because of the AHA, but my makeup has SPF in it and I am never outside for very long, so my skin hasn't had any side effects.
Don't expect miracles from this product. I have never achieved immaculate skin just by using this, but it did clear up acne bumps after some time, and kept new breakouts to a minimum. It takes about two months to be extremely satisfied. If it hasn't worked by then, you may want to try something else. The Neutrogena lotion WILL sting for the first few weeks you are using it, so follow the directions religiously. The stinging eventually fades (unless you picked your skin and you have an open sore). This lotion helps fade acne marks and helps slough off the dead layers of skin.
Highly recommended and it comes at a good price. No matter what face wash you decide to buy, remember to give it a good amount of time before you give up. Breakouts can take a month or more to surface, so don't think it's not working if you begin to breakout soon afterward. Purging breakouts heal quicker than normal breakouts, so bear that in mind. BUY this product if you're ready for a change.
I have since switched to a new cleaner. I still use this as my backup when a new product fails me, but I need something more for my acne.

When I first used this I didn't notice any difference, so I stopped. Half a year later I picked it back up again when I ran out of my cleanser. It doesn't work miracles but it kept my face clean and mostly clear. It does take time for you to notice any difference with your skin. I think it was around 2 months later when I randomly noticed my skin looked better.

I would also like to add that while I was using this cleanser, I was exercising/eating right and my skin was the best it had EVER been. Even when I stopped exercising as much and eating junk food here and there, it still kept my face pretty clear. It's a nice mild option. It does dry out my face so moisturizer is necessary.

EDIT: I realized that this cleanser is actually pretty dang excellent. I also realized sometimes the cleanser is not to blame, but the seasons, or even the moisturizer. This cleanser does a greattt job cleansing and keeping acne away. But over the summer I started breaking out like crazy. I thought it was the cleanser's fault bc it was too drying, but I realized much later that the air became dry so my lotion wasn't as hydrating anymore. But I kept switching cleansers because I thought that was the problem, which made things only worse. This + a good moisturizer = perfect. What else helped me come to this truth was I used this when I was in China one summer where the air was extremely humid, and this cleanser though drying in the states, was completely perfect in humid weather. I didn't need to use moisturizer there afterwards, and my skin was as clear as ever.

PROS: Smells good.

CONS: Can be a little too drying, even for my teen's' oily skin.

ALTERNATES: Alba Botanica Natural Acne Dote cleanser or some name like that is helpful for one of my teens. The other needs to use Paula's Choice CLEAR cleanser and toner/exfoliator for beautiful results. AND We like to use Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer to keep flakes away.

I was a little skeptical about it at first but then when I tried it worked quite well. It cleans my skin and leaves it clear looking. I quite like using this product because it exfoliates at the same time. Plus its gentle enough for daily use.

I have pictures of myself during the time period when I was using this cleanser and Clean&Clears blackhead scrbNe and they are my FAVORITE! My skin really cleared up! Everyone comments on those pictures about how flawless my skin looked and I happily agree. With that said I used a combination of products along with this one. Like I said the blackhead scrub, Neutraguena's Acne stress control toner, and the Clean&Clear morning glow moisterizer ( ugh-mazing product!!!)..fewh! So I can not give all the credit to the cleanser but I did enjoy it while I used it:)

I used this product when I was in school and in my early twenties. My sister really liked this product because of the smell. To me it smells overwhelmingly fragrant, and acts like dish soap. It's a very harsh cleanser that stripped away the oils of my skin. This is more for oily skin types and not for me.

The idea of the whole "bursting beads" concept really attracted me to this product, I think the smell is really nice and is a good cleanser when are just getting into learning about facial cleansers. But for me, this honestly wasn't that great, it didn't wake me up anymore than my other cleansers and just didn't do much for my skin.

I buy this over and over as it is just a good face wash. I use this in the shower to wash my face every morning. It does not irritate or dry out my skin, it simply cleans it thoroughly as it should. It has a nice refeshing feel on the skin, smells great and the beads are gentle on the skin. Would reccommend to anyone with normal/combination skin

I really like this product. It's mild and very effective on the skin. It doesnt try your skin out and gives it a nice glow. I use this everyday and it doesn't break me out.
