  • "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

Great product for the price. Only have to use a little each time I shower. Keeps my face from breaking out even if I eat greasy foods.

When my doctor recommended using benzyl peroxide once a day to treat acne, I immediately started using this product and have ever since! It's smooth, yet effective, on skin. And isn't sticky like store brand benzyl peroxide cleaners. Will continue to purchase this product!

I used to love using this when I was younger and in high school, but now that I have gotten older I think it doesn't work as well. It does great work for younger teens. It keeps breakouts under control for sure.

Good daily cleanser. I use it in the shower. Seems to help but I do still have acne. Seems to help stop me from being oily.

This is strong stuff! I really needed a good strong cleanser to help clear my face up and this really has done the trick without being to expensive or strong. I would buy it again because it was very effective. It was a large bottle so I'm glad I bought it

So when I first started using this face wash it worked AMAZING! No breakouts, no black heads, nothing to be seen! The only slight side effect I'd started noticing was extremely dry skin and sometimes flaking skin on the nose.

However a few weeks later, the 'tingly clean' feeling began to feel like a 'dull burn' and I started noticing that my eyes would sting if I washed a little too close to them. After one particularly gnarly underground rave, I went to wash off my heavily pigmented makeup and my eyes SWELLED SHUT. I thought at first it was the lash glue I'd used to apply my lashes, and saw a doctor. Then it happened again: At another concert, I came home to wash my face and my eyes swelled shut AGAIN. I thought maybe this time it was my makeup, so I threw that out and saw the doctor again.

Finally last night I washed my makeup-less face before bed and noticed a tingle near my eyelid. When I woke up today my eyes are swelling and I'm finding myself looking for the bottle of Benadryl and dialing up my doc again.

DO NOT use this product if you have sensitive skin.

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?
