HOLY GRAIL OF FACE WASHES
This is one of the best acne cleansers I have found thus far. It's a bit strange as it does not lather and get soapy, but it does work. I suffer from severe hormonal acne, my doctor has me on birth control pills(which were not working) and just as we were about to try something else I discovered this product. I noticed a difference right away but still I've used this product for about 2 weeks now and it has cleared up nearly all my acne. Before I would break out in 15+ pimples all over my face, now when I break out it's only 1 or 2, and they are usually whiteheads and not actual pimples. However, there are a few downfalls, I have now been breaking out on my neck and chest whilst using this product. This was never a problem for me before but I don't think it is a result of the face wash, as I only use it on my face. I think my acne is kind of like "we can't go on your face so we'll go somewhere else." The only other downfall is that it is EXTREMELY drying. I normally have oily skin and after using this my face was covered in dry patches and very itchy. I had to try four different moisturizers just to find one that was hydrating enough to even out the dryness, even now I find that my face is still a bit irritated. This is an amazing product but make sure you have an extremely hydrating moisturizer to use in pair with it. **Pictures attached just so you can see the difference, my face is very unproportional so I only attached on half, but that's not the point! I still have scarring of course but you can see my complexion is much more even and no active breakouts!
I’ve struggled with acne since my teen years, and it has been a pain trying to find something to keep my skin clear that’s also affordable. I tried proactive in the past and it was ok, but besides it being ridiculously expensive it was a little too harsh for my skin. My mom has been using clean & clear forever and has always nagged me to try it too, but I just assumed that 10% benzoyl peroxide would be too harsh. However not only does my face feel smooth, its gentle enough that I don’t need a moisturizer! As an added bonus I don’t need to rely on birth control pills to keep my skin in check. Anything that saves me time and money is awesome!
Didn't work for me :/
On the bottle it states that after one week of use skin is visibly clearer. Well I waited a week, and my skin had actually gotten quite noticeably worse. I assumed that my skin wasn't use to it yet, and waited another 2 weeks on top of that. It still didn't work after that, and I felt it drying out my skin even though I was only using it once a day. I applied moisturizer to help balance it out, and took a break from using the Continuous Control to help get the natural oils back in my skin again. This helped a little bit, but now when I try going back to using this cleanser again it still doesn't work. Now after about 5 weeks of using this product, I am worse off than I started. The only thing that I am left with is trying to reverse the damage that it did in the first place. I don't want to hate on this, I really really just want clear skin! Help!
Hate the new formula - DISAPPOINTED
DISAPPOINTED in the cost cutting changes I have used this product since it hit the market. As an adult that always had sensitive skin and adult acne, this product beat out Proactive in price and effectiveness. I started using my new container just to discover it has changed after all these years. I hate it! 1. since it is sold by volume, not weight, the new formula is whipped with air so there is actually less in the container. 2. The ingredient list has changed. The new formula makes my face feel heavy and gross, like I can't wash it off. 3. I admit, I tried the generic last year that came out, I didn't like it. I threw it away and returned to Clean and Clear. Guess what, this new formula is just like the that generic - what will justify the price if I can get the same thing generic. 4. The comment form to send on their website doesn't have the USA as a country - so they prevent their largest market from sending forms directly.
Only drugstore facewash that WORKS for acne!
I've had clear skin pretty much my whole life up until about 2 years ago I started to get the worst cystic acne out of nowhere. I would cry about it, I would isolate myself and not only did it hurt physically for me, it was draining me mentally. I went on birth control, which made it dramatically worse, my doctor prescribed me a topical cream that was soo expensive that did nothing for me. I ended up caving and trying proactiv which literally transformed my skin. Everything cleared up within days, I'm not kidding. I then ended up getting microneedling done on my face and my skin was completely acne free for months after! Now, its starting to come back and as I was crying over my skin again, I realized I'm too broke for proactiv which concerned me because it's the only thing that works.. I went to the local drugstore and picked up this face wash in a kit with the hydrating gel and acne spot treatment and my face has gotten SO so so much better, I've been using this product for a few days now and have noticed a dramatic change in my skin in the best way possible! If anyone is struggling with acne and are on a budget I highly recommend this product! seriously such an underrated cleanser. Also if anyone is looking for something that works from the inside, I also take Diane-35 birth control. In europe I know its used as an acne medication and it works big time! It's also not one of the many birth controls that makes your acne "worse before it gets better" it starts working right away and it's amazing!
