  • "Very thick and creamy this face wash has worked wonders on my skin. It has helped clear up my skin and keep it clear for a few years now and I will continue to use it for as long as it continues to work wonders. It is 10% benzoyl peroxide so it is strong stuff. Start off by using it once a day and more later on if needed. If you have dry sensitive skin then this might be a bit strong but you could always mix it with a little bit of unmedicated face wash until your skin is used to it." in 48 reviews
  • "I was always unhappy with the results of others, and was constantly buying new face washes before i would even finished the bottle." in 10 reviews
  • "This cleanser has the highest percentage of benzoyl peroxide that I've seen sold and it doesn't burn my skin like salicylic acid based cleansers." in 8 reviews
  • "This product has been pretty great but if you're using more than just one acne face wash with salicylic acid be careful because my face got a little dry from both products." in 5 reviews

I love this face wash, I have dry skin and occasionally get breakouts, happening more as I get older and this is the only thing that helps it. It doesn’t dry my skin even more and it’s very gentle. Great for the price.

This clean and clear product help reduce my acne substantially. I alternate between product depending on my level of acne. Clean and clear is my go-to when I have a few pimples. Works wonders.

I've been using this product on and off for the past few years. It gives a great clean but I dont notice any big changes to my acne. New spots pop up and take a long time to go away. It does have a smell but nothing bad.

This was recommended to me by my dermatologist for oil control. I leave this on for 10 or so minutes in the shower and it makes my skin feel amazing! I understand it a few times a week and more if I’m having a break out.

I used this for a while and it worked pretty well for me. On the other hand to my brother it didn't do much. It left our a little dry but it worked wonderfully removing the dirt build up.

Love this cleanser! The smell isn’t overbearing like some cleansers. This was my first time using it and it was gentle on the face. I definitely liked it. Highly recommend. It’s one of the best cleansers I’ve used

This is by far the BEST acne cleanser I have ever used. I would wear makeup on a daily bases and break outs would occur but the facial cleansers I would use just weren't cutting it. I needed something stronger than the usual acne cleanser. I came across this at walmart and just decided to try it since it was benzoyl peroxide. IT DID WONDERS TO MY SKIN. This is a strong cleanser so I do not recommend if you have sensitive skin, however you really will see a difference within 1-2 weeks. This cleanser gave me the confidence to be without makeup. Since i never really struggled with bad acne I wasn't sure if I was just over exaggerating about what this product can do, but then my cousin had told me that he was struggling with acne and that the facial cleansers he was using just weren't working for him. i told him to try this one and he FELL IN LOVE. not only did his skin start to clear up but this cleanser is now fighting future breakouts. This cleanser is under $8 and can be found at walmart!!

Is this more of a foaming cleanser or a scrub-like cleanser?

Do you use this by itself or with the whole line to get complete effect to work? Does it work on oily skin? Thinking of amount needed for this family of 4 and 3 of us have breakouts cost wise also?
