I don't use this every day. It's way too harsh for that. I only use this when I'm breaking out - whether I have existing acne or I feel one coming on. It can sting, for sure, so please prepare yourself for that.This is not a cleanser to take off makeup. You'll need something more gentle. It works! I'll use it at night and I definitely see a difference the next morning.

I have hormonal acne pretty bad along my jawline and chin. I’ve been to the dermatologist, tried every drugstore cream or cleanser you could imagine, and have still never seen any results. I finally decided to go to Sephora and ask them what they think I should try. They recommended this cleanser and the Ain’t Misbehavin’ Medicated Acne Control Serum, and said they both work well for hormonal acne. The cleanser was $27 for quite a large bottle (7 oz!), so I went ahead and bought it. I’ve been using it two or three times a day, every day, for about three weeks now. So far, my acne hasn’t gotten any better, which is a bummer, but it also hasn’t gotten any worse. The Sephora rep said I should try it for a month, so I’m going to keep trying it to see if I get any results.I will say, I really do like it as a cleanser though. Some of the other reviews said it doesn’t remove makeup, but I think it removes mine just fine (although I haven’t tried it on my eyes, I’ll stick to an eye makeup remover for that). I really like that you apply it dry, and sometimes I’ll rub it in and then leave it for a minute or two, almost like a mask. It burns a little, but I actually find it pleasant; I feel like it’s really doing something. It has a weird smell but it doesn’t bother me. It rinses off easily and leaves my skin feeling really clean, but not dry at all.Overall, I really like this cleanser. I think it’s a good value, and I like how it feels while I’m using it, and how my skin feels after. If this starts clearing up my acne, I'll call it my HG cleanser, but I don't really have high hopes that it will.

Before using the DERMAdoctor Ain't Misbehavin' cleanser, I was using a Clinique cleanser that had a foam pump. I really didn't think it was cleaning my skin as well as I wanted a cleanser to, and I was sick of having a foam pump cleanser. So, I went to Ulta one day and a saleswoman recommended the DERMAdoctor Ain't Misbehavin' cleanser to me. She told me she personally uses it herself and absolutely loves it. I thought, why not? I was searching for a new cleanser at the time anyways. Well, my encounter with that saleswoman was nearly a year ago, and I have used this product twice a day every day since then (morning and night). This is my holy grail, absolute favorite skin care product. You gently massage it onto your face with a dry face and hands (the instructions say to do so). After washing it off, my skin feels SO clean and fresh and hydrated. I can't rave about this product enough. It is incredible! Even my boyfriend uses it and loves it. It is close to $30, but I don't put a price on a product that will clean my skin extremely well and keep my skin looking fresh 24/7. This product won't disappoint you. It is a must-have in every girl's beauty cabinet.

Update after two weeks of use:Oh Dermadoctor… how I wanted to love you. In fact I did, for about 3 days. Maybe my skin is just crazy since coming off retin a but I found this stuff proved to be too harsh for me yet again. I was sure this would work for me since everyone on here had such great reviews and said it helped their hormonal acne. Truth is my acne isn't that bad. If I had 3 pimples at one time that was considered a bad break out for me and I maybe got a cyst every 7 weeks or something. HA! Now I wish I had my old skin back. I probably just needed a good spot treatment instead of changing everything. The first couple days on this my skin literally GLOWED. Not a pimple in sight from my mouth up so I had hope. But my chin was still this war zone, it looked like I had chicken pox. To be fair before going on this cleanser my chin did look really congested and if I am going to get a pimple it's probably gonna be on the chin. So I thought it was just a purge and maybe it was - but within the first week I had 4 cysts in one corner of my chin :( They did heal up fast and come to a head fast too so once again I held on hoping this stuff was working. But a week later two of them were resurrected and sprouted new heads honestly wtf?! It was SO embarrassing. I don't know if the cleanser was just too harsh and irritating them to come out or what, but that's definitely not normal for me. I had a small purge on my previous lactic cleanser but it was just a few small bumps that went away after about 10 days and NEVER any cysts. I've now decided that anything that makes me break out with cysts the first week has got to go as it's too harsh.I was also having retin a flashbacks as this stuff dried out my skin after the first week. It was feeling really raw! And at this point I was only using it once a day and with the tiniest pea size amount. I could only tolerate it once every three days on any skin above my mouth. I even then tried it only on my chin every other day and it was STILL drying me out. I had serious gator skin while using a moisturizing cream after every wash. Before my skin type was oily and in a matter of two weeks I was seriously a crocodile. Reduced oil indeed - I'll give them that for correct advertisement AHEM.The only thing that's worked for me now is a gentle foamy lactic acid cleanser that I get from a local spa (and the proactive cleanser - pls don't hate me). It's not a brand name, just something they make so they better never stop making it. It's got a lot less percentage of lactic and salicylic acid in it but I guess that's what my face needs. I've never had a cyst on that cleanser either - so I would suggest a more gentle cleanser if you felt this face wash increased your cystic acne and was too harsh. I still have no idea how some of these people claimed they had sensitive skin and then used this twice daily wooo-eee!! I also found out lactic acid is now being considered the best AHA because it's the most gentle. I guess that's what my skin needs. My acne just isn't as bad as I thought it was. I think I was self inducing the acne on myself by using too harsh of products and further irritating it. Point is, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

I have a love/hate relationship with this product. A Sephora SA recommended I try this (I have acne-prone skin but my acne isn't terrible, just a few blemishes and blackheads here and there). I only use this at night and if I have a breakout or blemish, the next morning it clears up, so it is pretty effective. It just hasn't stopped me from breaking out completely. I also imagine that it's just too harsh for daily use, regardless of what the SA said. It does seem to sting on active breakouts. I think because of how effective it is at clearing up breakouts, I would buy it again, but only just to use if I have a bad breakout. I also hate that I have to apply it to a dry face and that it doesn't lather or foam. It doesn't feel like I'm cleaning my face that way. Like someone on here said, it is kind of like a wash off treatment as opposed to a facial cleanser. It is $25 for a 7 oz bottle, which is quite pricey for a facial cleanser but I bought it over three months ago, use it daily, and I still have at least half the bottle left.

OK I wrote a review about the sun block that is not suitable for my skin type. But this AHA/BHA cleanser works REALLY WELL!I love this product. Yes it stinks at first when you use it because it is medicated and it is working underneath the skin surface to do what it needs to do to kill bacteria and heal the acne! But the more you use it the less you will feel it stinking! Finally it becomes just a very smooth milk like texture cleanser, you won't feel a thing! But it will heal your acne. So I love this product and I have already re-purchased this from Sephora. I no longer have any acne. Once in a while yes due to monthly cycle or bad diet whatsoever. But I use this product with the Sonicare brush and it works like a charm!If you have acne problem or you have oily skin, I high recommend this product. It is a big tube and only costs like $25. It will last you a few months even if you use it day and night. It really is worth a try. Good luck girls!

I love this! I have battled acne since I was 13 and I am 25 now. I have used Murad and Proactive and they didn't help one bit, This stuff is amazing! My zits are healing and getting smaller and I've used it less than a week. I hope it continues to work

Update: After using this for about a month, the cystic acne was gone, but I started breaking out in little whiteheads and blackheads. My skin was looking bad again. BLAH. I started using Proactiv again and eventually quit this product. I am back on Proactiv, which is really helping and this product is sitting in my closet. First review: I am a 34 year old mom of 2 who has battled acne since I was a teen. In my 20s I used OTC and Rx products, and Rx would clear me up immediately, but I hated using them. The only time my skin was perfect was during pregnancy and for about 19 months after (when my hormones would regulate back to pre-pregnancy levels). After my first son (at 19 months), i broke out in horrible cystic acne on my cheeks and jawline. I tried everything and eventually went to Proactiv as my last effort before the dermatologist. Within 1 week I was clear (i got pregnant again though, stopped Proactiv and moved back to gentle cleansers). Fast forward to 19 month pp after my 2nd son and my skin was a disaster again. Proactiv did nothing at this point but dry me out. I then found this cleanser. OMG. I immediately saw the difference in my skin. I use a gentle cleanser first to remove any makeup, etc, then dry my face. Then I massage this on my skin and let it sit for a minute or so before I wash it off. My skin is smooth and soft. It is not red at all and my pores are minimized. My blackheads are disappearing and I have NOT had any new pimples since I bought this. It has not dried out my skin either, but it is more sensitive. So be careful around your eyes and if you plan on getting waxed at all. LOVE this cleanser and I am so glad I found it!

I have been waging war against my adult hormonal acne for a couple years now. I have tried a lot of prescriptions and a million cleansers and this cleanser has completely cleared my skin. Completely!I have to warn you though, I have sensitive skin and I had to slowly work my way up to using a product as strong as this cleanser. I had used a cleanser very similar to this one prior to going to a dermatologist and it was too strong. It inflamed my skin and exacerbated my hormonal/cystic acne. When I finally dragged myself to the dermatologist they put me on an extremely gentle cleanser, antibiotics, aczone, and retinA micro (at the lowest dose). Eventually I worked up to the highest dose Retin-A micro and went off the antibiotics. My skin was pretty clear but I continued to get cystic pimples along my jaw line every now and then. So I started to experiment with stronger cleansers. Ever since I started using Ain't misbehaving my skin has become clearer and clearer! My pores are smaller, acne pigmentation erased, and my skin is bright soft and clear! I love this product. I'm still also using the Aczone & Retin-A, but this cleanser has really taken my skin to the next level.I have also been using Dermadoctor's Wrinkle Revenge serum and it is equally amazing. It absorbs completely into the skin, no greasy residue perfect for wearing under makeup. It helped so much with my fine lines and overall makes my skin supple and soft. I feel like my regimen has been perfected and its changed my life.

Seems to have curved my cystic acne (I usually get it around my period, but not this month!) I've been using this product for three weeks now and I love it. My skin is looking really good. I've also been using dermadoctor's wrinkle revenge lift and replenish serum (which I like) and calm cool and corrected (okay but not worth the price to me). Still looking for a good moisturizer but other than that happy! Before I was using Cerave's hydrating cleanser and benzoyl peroxide but would still get some pimples. I was also using cetaphil's moisturizing cream (not good/calming for skin reactions to retin-a or peels).
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
