This is a fine product, I don't really have anything bad to say about it, but nothing great either.  I bought it for the salicylic acid that helps get rid of acne.  I had used their foaming cleanser before, and I think I like that a bit better just because it feels more like face wash to me.  I can't tell if this helped keep my acne under control or not; I didn't really notice a difference, but then I usually don't with just one product.  If you have mild blemishes or blackheads you might see more of a difference than I did.

This product worked fair.  I wasn't very fond of the consistency, seemed a bit too thick for me.  It did clean my face, but it felt like I had a film leftover after I rinsed.  I would not use this again.  The packaging was the normal Aveeno bland coloring.

If you have acne but need a cleanser that is gentle but effective, this is it. It is creamy but not greasy and you are left with a clean feeling without feeling stripped of your natural oils. This has worked better than any high end cleanser and because it is thicker, you can use it as a mask too!

If your someone who likes to feel the cleanser working than this is for you. I'm not a fan of the cleansers that feel like lotion. I usually pick this up from Target and it's a great cleanser, especially after I take my make up off. I like it in the summer months the most because it leaves my face feeling fresh if I've been out and sweating all day.

This was recommended by my dermatologist because I have hyperpigmentation as a result of eczema, You have to use it for at least two week 2x a day to see results. It's super effective and has brightened my dark areas. I personally use it with multiple tools including a facial brush. I also have the other products in the collection.

This was just an okay cleanser for me, not the best at cleansing. My face still feels like I have to cleanse it again with a foaming cleanser to actually get all the dirt and oil off. I think I read somewhere that cream cleansers aren't actually the recommended types for people with oily skin like me. I guess I should've listened.

This product was too creamy for my liking. It did not lather like I wanted it to and so I did not really use it much after the handful of times I did. It is gentle though so that's good. I probably would not buy it again because of my preference but for people with sensitive skin I think it would be great.

I have been using this product for years and always does the job. Never had a problem with my skin being sensitive to it or making sure my complexion is clear and bright. Would definitely recommend for those who have sensitive skin and need a good exfoliator.

I like to use Aveeno Active Naturals Clear Complexion Cream Cleanser prior to exfoliating every night in the shower. It gets off all the daily grime & doesn't leave my skin feeling all dried out. Plus...it fights acne too :o)

I've been using this face wash and aveeno products in general since high school and they have never let me down. It works so amazing with my sensitive skin and I never seem to have any issues when I switch to a new product of theirs. I would recommend anything from this brand!

Is this good for acne prone skin that tends to get dry? The last face wash I tried left my skin feeling dry and irritated.

Does this product help keep you from breaking out? Or does a product with acne medicine need to be used in conjunction? I love Aveeno so I'd like to try this!
