  • "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

The first time I tried used it just went harsh on my skin and irritated it. My face looked like swollen. However I liked the packaging of the product and the description but i guess it had something that didn’t really worked my skin and my skin is SUPER sensitive

I bought this product for the higher amount of benezoyl peroxide.
I don't like consistancy, it's hard to spread around my face and i didn't use it for more than 4 days. I got 4 terrible red pimples then in still trying to clear away. Im not sure if its purging my skin but with my meeting coming up I cant afford to wait and see. I went back to my original cleanser with a lower benezoyl peroxide percentsge to try and clean up the damage.

I’ve heard great things about this product. However, I have very sensitive skin and this made me break out so much worse than I ever have before. I bought this at Walmart as well as the face moisturizer. I will not be buying it again

It states after one week your skin will be visibly more clear and less oily. I have been using it about that and my skin definitely is not less oily. Sometimes after use my face slightly like burns or tingles which usually I like that “clean tingle” my face feels like after cleaning it really good, but this actually stung. I have been using clean & clear brand face wash since washing my face has become routined. I decided to try something that’s more focused on the problems I have with my skin. It was about $1.50 more than the normal brand I use (the clean and clear in the blue, green and white bottle) I bought from tops but I know you can buy literally anywhere. I will go back to my normal face wash after I run out of this.

Update: after two weeks of use-my face burned so bad after I used it the other day I had I run my face under freezing cold water. Also, my face is actually broke out in acne right now. More than I would normally get. My fave does feel less oily but I’m unsure if that’s because of this product or the other products I’m using on the side to get rid of this acne

These product did nothing at all and just made us sad and unhappy for months because we could not find anything at Walmart that would work. I’m the end we realized it was what Walmart carries not us.

Clean and Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser was good value and did leave my face feeling clean. However, it did not treat my acne. I would recommend to those not dealing with acne. It is a good price.

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?
