This is a general review for microfiber cloths as regards acne (mine).
The good: Microfiber cloths are the super-cheap Rolls Royce of washcloths. You can get them at a dollar store for, well, a dollar. Using them with Cetaphil cleanser and definitely improved my acne.
The less good: I've gotten even better results with a double oil-cleanse method of massaging Jojoba oil into my skin with my fingers, and then washing it off with the Cetaphil. But the OCM is not for everyone.
Check microfiber cloths out if you prefer to keep your fingers away from your skin, which seems to exacerbate some people's acne.
(My flirtation with the Clarisonic was a disaster - major breakouts for weeks until I gave up - purging period, my ass. And that was well over a hundred bucks, not $1!)

This is great with cleansing balm. I use SAAF pure cleanser and soak a microfibre cloth in warm water before wringing- it takes a couple of gentle swipes to thoroughly clean n remove makeup, along with a teeny bit of (gentle) exfoliation. Will always have on hand.

This product is one of those things I'd never know about if not for MUA!
I went to Wally-world and got the bright yellow-green ones from the auto department, as several people have suggested in reviews.
They seemed kind of large, so I cut each into 4 pieces, so they are now just a little smaller than a regular washcloth. There was a bit of linty mess as I cut them, but I washed them in the washer and they're fine now.
Holy cow! These things are more exfoliating than a regular washcloth, but softer than any cloth I've ever used on my face.
In fact, they're deceptively exfoliating; don't scrub too hard, thinking that the softness won't exfoliate your skin!

After reading all of the reviews here, I had to try this for myself. I went to the dollar store and purchased a pack of 4 in the kitchen area. They are your normal average variety microfiber cloths as I didn't want to splurge just in case I didn't like them. WELL, let's just say that I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with these puppies.
My skin is easily congested and I have to be very careful with what I use, and how I clean my skin etc. This fits into my regime perfectly.

Tried many different versions from the 3M one in the beauty stores meant to cleanse the skin to the super cheapy all purpose ones. Find the ones with the waffle weave are the best for facial skin as it takes off all flaking without over scrubbing the skin raw.
I am on Obagi and still gets lots of flakes and even peeling patches. The best way way is to cleanse with the Clarisonic and then, while my skin is still soapy, gently wipe away the excess cleanser using small circles with just the lightest of touch. Nothing else will remove the remaining flakes.

This is my standard cleansing tool. I use it with all types of cleanser and I have no need for a separate exfoliator (?sp?).
However I only use the baby wash cloths, they are small squares and really soft. I have cleaning cloths for dusting, washing dishes and cleaning the car, those cloths are a lot more abrasive than the baby cloths.
I discovered these when another mum used one on her baby during an activity class, baby sign I think, I thought how convenient and eco friendly . Once I realised how cheap they were, 99p for 6, I bought one colour for my son and another for me. Now my son is 4 and they are way to small to use to wash him, but great for my face.
I have bought many since. If I forget myself and actually rub my skin with them then it can leave patches on my skin raw. Not good. If I just swipe cleanser away, and even in the am I can see impurities built up over night.
Have bought some for my sister in law and my friends teenage son. They work.

I'll keep this one simple. I'm 65, with normal to dry skin, fair, thin skinned, sensitive and reactive. My skin was always a bit flaky on my forehead and around my mouth and chin. I changed nothing other than normally patting-wiping-drying my face with these twice per day!! No more flakes, skin looks smoother and more hydrated. It is especially noticeable when I wear a zinc based sunscreen. I can use no other exfoliant due to sensitivity and mild flushing rosacea. I buy packs of multiple wash-sized clothes in the auto section for dirt cheap.

I love these for cleaning my face. They are gentle on my sensitive and oily skin. I get these from the dollar tree and they really hold up in the wash. They dry easily on my towel rack and my skin gets the gentle exfoliation it needs weekly. Instead of using expensive clarisonic brushes or manual exfoliants that can scratch and damage delicate skin tissue, use these.

I love microfiber cloths! I use them for everything. I use them with face wash to gently scrub my face. I use microfiber turbie twist type towels to dry my hair and to leave it up while I do my makeup or go through my nighttime skincare routine. I use it to dust/clean. I use them in place of swiffer wipes (great money saver and I'm being "green"!). I use it to dry my car. I use it to clean screens (tv, computer monitor, phone screen).
I get all my microfiber cloths from The Dollar Tree store. I already have a bunch, but I wish I bought them from Sam's Club or Costco because they have 24 packs and 36 packs for around $10-$12. I paid $1 for each towel, and it's not so bad for the size and quality I got, but I found even thicker, softer, and larger towels in the cleaning section of dollar-only type store.
At dollar tree, there are two-packs of microfiber towels that are extremely soft and good quality in the cleaning section (next to all the sponges and dusters); and you get a better deal because you get 2 instead of just one in the beauty section. At the 99 cent store, I didn't see 2-packs, but in the section with the dish towels, there was a big, thick, extra soft microfiber towel which seemed to be the best quality I've found so far.
I find that the April brand microfiber hair towel is the best quality turbie twist type hair towel of all the ones I've seen at dollar-only stores.
Microfiber requires special care when washing:
-do not use fabric softener
-use cold water
-hang dry or dry with no heat
-no dryer sheets (they have fabric softner)
-wash with other microfiber stuff only
-use less detergent
-NO FABRIC SOFTENER

It's too cool for me; using very little pressure I removed my cleanser with them and cool water but they left me red in the face - literally. I guess my skin is far more sensitive than I thought, because I was left not only red in the face but rough. Its been 4 days since I used it that one time and my skin texture still feels a bit rough.
