  • "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

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.

This product worked like magic. It cleared up my skin so good. The packaging is alright doesn't need nothing more or less. It was my first time using it and it worked, I will definitely be buying more. At my drugstore it is priced alright. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has dark spots and pimples- whether acne or not it works!

I love this product! Other products make my face feel like I've added, not cleaned. I truly feel like my face is clean and I haven't had any issues with acne!

This is my go-to anti breakout face wash. I use a daily light cleanser and an eye makeup remover but I use this product specifically when I feel like my skin is going to break out when I start to feel signs of overly oily skin that may cause a breakout. The ingredients in it such as a peroxide are very comparable to some other popular products for acne but is a much more budget-friendly. It feels like somewhat of a cream but it has a light lather and rinses clean. It really does help breakouts.

This is great! You can see results about a few weeks! Don't leave it on too long, it'll start to burn. It's perfect for spot treating too. Not too expensive.

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?
