Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
-Dries out pimples fairly quickly
-High alcohol content and gross smell
-Stings when first applied
-Leaves a strange oily residue on skin after a few hours
It's not a miracle product but it does help clear breakouts faster and calm angry red pimples. I'd purchase this product again but next time the sensitive skin version.

Hmnnn where do i start from? This product is a little "Messiah" in a bottle for me. I have tried everything up to Retinol, Zinc Oxide, even use the Herbal capsules to ease my raging hormones. LOL And Yes i'm a 26 yrs old with zits of a14yrs old.
I am proud to say this is the longest my face has been Zit free with the help of this Orange baby. I marvel at how it gets to work, it exfoliates all your dead skin and immediately brings out skin shining. And then dries off those zits one by one, i mean i couldn't even believe that i have faithfully used Neutrogena for years whereas Clean & Clear was done for the same company.
This product is an heaven-sent, i combine it with the Morning Burst cleanser, followed by the Pore finishes and i then swab this "baby" all over my face. It sure tingles and you can actually see your dead skin been peeled on to the cotton swab.
I would say it dries off your skin but ... mann i have an extremely oily face plus i sit under the flourescent light in my office which makes my face run off easily. So what i do is use Ambi Moisturizer immediately, also made by the same company, all over my face to counter the dryness but maaan my face stays matte all day except if i decide to just run my foundation brush again.
I would definitely buy this product again, and all of these changes was within a week. I didn't want to speak to soon like i did with other products and then notice it stops working 3 days after i've been a spokeswoman for it. LOL this product will forever be on my beauty shelf, please Johnson & Johnson keep making this baby. I'm sold!!!!

It REALLY gets all the crap (oils, dirt, etc.) off your face. Unfortunately for me it just dries the crap out of my face. I find myself having to use a moisturizer immediately after this otherwise my skin dries up and flakes off! Also it has a tendancy to turn my face bright red after use so I only use it before I go to bed. Would recommend to someone with very oily skin, however I will look for something a little gentler next time.

Used sparingly this product is great for my generally zit free face. I used it almost daily at night and once I woke up during the hot, summer sweaty months. During the rest of the year I use it when I have a break out or after a work out. It dries out and eliminates my pimples and I see great results within 24 hours. It does have the tendency to dry your skin, so use moderately.

Great toner for oily skin and prevent breakouts. It's not as harsh on my skin as the Neutrogena Clear Pore and doesn't dry out my skin. In fact, it keeps my skin younger looking due to the exfoliation.

Awful product! I donīt recommend this to anyone, any skin type!
It made my skin dry, flaky, my cheeks red and irritated!
Look at the ingredients before you buy it.

This stuff is just awful. It is so strong and way too harsh. I do NOT have sensitive skin at all. My skin is very oily, but almost never has dryness to it. In the morning I use a light moisturizer but at night I moisturize well since even oily skin needs good moisture. You can tell just by the alcohol smell of this stuff that it's too harsh on the skin. If you really want a good toner that's cheap, get Thayer's Witch Hazel. I'm going back to the witch hazel myself.

When I want to go for a cheap astringent, this is my favorite. Yes, it has its flaws, but it works wonderfully if you know what to do with it (especially after putting it on).
Yes, this stuff mostly has alcohol in it. Yes, this stuff doesn't smell good. Yes, this stuff can dry your face to the bone. I admit that all of these are true, but once I put a good moisturizer on my face after applying the astringent, all of the product's faults go right out the window.
This astringent helps with any blemishes, which is the purpose of astringent in the first place. It doesn't make my skin feel oily (and it helps the moisturizer from making it oily as well).
The only thing left I have to say about this product is that it's reliable. I can recommend this to anyone, but just make sure that you put moisturizer on after using it!

Used to be my fav astringent, what was I thinking? It's really smelly the fumes burn my eyes. Leaves me really dry yet after a couple hours i'd be oily and have dry patches with flakey skin. I switched to a more natural toner my skin is in much better. I have to say is the cap used to make a very loud pop when closed it must have been redesigned because that no longer happens.

Yes, it burns. Most astringents do. But it works. I'm breaking out much less since switching to the clean & clear brand. I feel this is the best brand of drugstore acne products.
I've tried proactive,RX for brown skin, neutrogena, and dermatologist presciptions and nothing helped clear up my skin like clean & clear. I however limit myself to using the astringent 1x a day because it can cause drying if you use it everytime you wash your face.
