  • "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

This my favorite face wash to use. It has a great tingling sensation that feels like cool mint added to your face and skin. I have had gone months without acne and black heads while using this specific product. I love it so much and I recommend for everyone. Especially oily skin type.

This is my current face wash, and it gets the job done - but I don't LOVE it. It doesn't irritate my skin, and for the most part it keeps acne at bay. I still feel as if I struggle with oily skin, however, and some dark spots/uneveness in my skin tone. Still, this is inexpensive ($5 to $8 depending on when and where I buy it), so I really can't complain! If you're looking for a cheap cleanser that helps with primarily acne, this is the face wash for you. If you have multiple skin concerns and need something to address more than just pimples, I'd say to keep looking.

This is my go-to facial cleanser. I have had cystic acne since I was a teenager and have tried several things. The expensive products never worked for me, either. This product helped clear my acne within a couple of weeks and helps to keep fighting it. I haven’t had a severe breakout since I started using it last year. It is drying because of the peroxide content, and I don’t use it daily as the package says you can, but I use a good acne-control moisturizer and my skin has been looking great since! The product isn’t expensive, and it lasts forever- I get a couple months use out of one package! I love this product!

So I originally had the exfoliating version of this product, but it dried out my skin and irritated my acne, so my dermatologist recommended that I switch to something less abrasive. I picked up the cream version, and let me tell you, it is sooo soft. My skin has been reacting a lot better to the cream, and my dry patches are going away. I've had some troubles with acne since using this product, but I can tell that it is getting better. I really recommend this product if you want something more gentle yet still effective.

My husband first purchased this as he likes to prevent blemishes. He stopped using it because he said it was making his face too oily. So I figured I would use it with my foreo just to use it up as I don't really have problems with blemishes.

WELP bad idea. It didn't make my face oily but it did make my forehead break out. I gave it chance for about 2 weeks and I am just going to have to toss the bottle. I can typically use pretty much any brand of face cleansers and never hav a problem. But my face didn't react well to this one. It wa about $4 at Target and we will not be purchasing it again.

This is my first time using this product and unfortuatly it will be my last. I wanted to try a facial cleaner with benzoyl peroxide. I used it for 3 nights and on the third night it gave my skin a burning sensation. After washing it off, my skin felt like a leather bag. It had some type of allergic reaction to the formula. This is my first time that this had happened to me. My skin now feels dry and rough every time I wash it. I am super sad I was not able to love this product.

I love This cleanser for fighting acne and Breakouts. It keeps my skin really clear, the only downside is I have really dry skin, so I only use it once a day because it can be drying, so make sure you moisturize well when using.

I’ve been using this face wash for years and it always keeps my skin fresh and clear and it makes your skin smell and feel minty fresh. It’s very affordable and you can find it just about any Walgreens or Walmart, I will buy again.

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?
