There are two things, and only two things, that have kept my skin clear for the past 7 or so years. One is the Dove Sensitive Skin beauty bar and this is the other. If I go without one or the other for more than a day, I will get breakouts, but with the combination of both of these, a blemish is a rarity.
I believe that we are supposed to stay away from toners with alcohol in them - dries out your skin, bad for your skin, etc etc. I DON'T CURR. This is the only thing that works for me. I battled with my acne for years - my skin was perfect up until I turned 18 and then it went crazy. I never was without at least two deep cystic pimples at any given time, and I don't even want to get started on the war zone my face looked like after dozens of acne scars. This went on for years and I tried soooo many different things for my skin, including prescription medications, and some of them worked for a while, but the problems would always come back. The combination of the Dove beauty bar and this astringent is the only regimen that works for me to keep pimples at bay on a pretty much permanent basis. I can actually go out without foundation now without feeling super self conscious. I get frequent of compliments on my skin, which honestly still amazes me after having had such TERRIBLE skin for years.
The only thing that makes me a little sad is that I'm basically chained to Dove beauty bar and Clean & Clear astringent for the foreseeable future hahaha. Sometimes when I go out of town I've forgotten one or the other and I'll have to find a drugstore nearby to purchase since whatever the hotel/friend I'm staying with has won't cut it. However, I should consider myself lucky because a) neither of them are expensive b) both are easily accessible, stocked by pretty much any drugstore or supermarket and c) they work. I guess that's all I can ask for!

Wow! This was...one hell of a product. Made my face explode w/ what seemed to be first degree burns and crazy amounts of dryness, which, in turn, made me break out even more. Horrendous! The only good thing that came out of it was the lesson that for people w/ acne prone skin it is very important NOT to overdry skin, but to instead, balance the amount of oil it produces. Take 1 star, clean&clear!

Oh my goodness, this stuff is a lifesaver. My oil has been under control, without any over drying. My pores aren't clogged since I began using this, it leaves my skin smooth and even looking. It helps zap sits and prevent future ones from happening. It's so rare for me to find products that work with my ridiculous skin and Florida weather. This is also crazy cheap, and the clear bottle is great, because you know when you're about to run out. =]
UPDATE!!!! Dried my skin out wayyyyyy too much, and cystic pimples began popping up all over my face. 3

This stuff is a GODSEND. I've been struggling with spot breakouts and I've gone through half a dozen products, to no avail...I picked this up for $8 and shoppers drug mart, and 2 days later, my skin is totally clear.
it can be a bit drying, but just apply a bit of moisturizer and you're good to go.

I have used this for years and it has done the job of keeping my skin clear along with the Clean and clear oil free face wash. But in the last few months I have found it to be overdrying for me. If you have oily skin this might work really well . I have since gone the natural way with witch hazel.

This product works pretty good. I liked it overall, but a few things were annoying about it.. like that it comes out of the bottle way too much at a time and squirts everywhere then and it really stings my face when applied and it dries out my face a bit. I did like that it cleared up pimples pretty well, but I doubt I will buy this again.. it comes in a big bottle that lasts for a long time though. It also is pretty cheap. If you have sensitive skin then I reallllyy do not recommend this for you.

I am used to using salycic acid 2% on my face as I used to use Noxema pads twice a day. I decided that the little pads were too abrasive and wanted something liquid, so I picked this stuff up. My skin now hates me.
I don't know what ingredient in this irritates my skin so much but it sort of reminds me of the feeling of when you put lemon juice on your skin after a good cleansing (ouch). It goes away after 15 minutes but the minute you get warm and sweat a little (like at the gym, being outside in uber hot weather, etc) HOLY HECK your face burns with pin prick sensations all over. I mean, this could be HOURS after application. I then broke out all over but I think it wasn't zits, it was more of a rash. I'm still dealing with it. I don't have sensitive skin and have never had a reaction like this. This does not work at all for me.

i have been using this for almost a year now and i love it. ill tell you about a recent use of this. My skin becomes extremely oily when i use a heavy cream moisturizer and with the combination of hot, humid weather.; i look like a mess. I ended up breaking out on my forehead, nose, cheek and chin. i'm an infamous popper of pimples when i am able to see a white/blackhead. After doing so, i applied the toner (dont apply to freshly popped pimples, it burns like hell esp. if you cant tolerate pain.) Anyway, i applied the toner at least 7-8x that day and even left a soaked cotton ball on the stubborn ones. now it is the second day.. and my pimples are completely gone.
i cant live without this toner!

This stuff is very strong! I use a little bit when I get the occasional pimple and it works perfectly in that regard but I wouldn't use it on my whole face since it feels very dry afterwards. However, it seems to work well on my sibling who has VERY oily skin and I have normal skin so maybe that's why.
