CLEAN & CLEAR® Essentials Dual Action Moisturizer combines oil-free moisture with a proven acne-fighting ingredient. It can help to moisturize dry skin while treating and helping to prevent breakouts. It leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.

Recomended for:

Skin Need: Dryness, Pimples


  • After you've cleaned your face, and your pores, you're ready for the finishing touch.
  • Yes, this moisturizer, but it also has acne-fighting medicine in it, so go easy.
  • Apply a thin layer over the affect area. Do this once a day for the first few days, then gradually increase to 2-3 times a day if needed or recommended by your doctor.
  • But be smart. If your skin starts to dry out or peel, reduce your use to once a day, or even every other day.

  • "I love this product! It works wonders on my dry skin. I apply right after the shower and it makes my face so smooth." in 85 reviews
  • "I first bought this a couple of years ago when my skin was acting up... I've since repurchased 4 or 5 times. It's so lightweight and lively on the skin. I have sensitive skin myself, dry cheeks and oily t-zone, and I find it truly moisturizing and mattifying. My husband actually loves it too. He has quite oily skin but says it feels tight after washing his face, so he pops a bit of this on and he loves it. Basically it does exactly what it says on the tin. The only downside is that it doesn't contain SPF, so I wouldn't use it in the mornings, but it's A-OK for night time! " in 55 reviews
  • "This product is great for the winter when my hands dry out all the time. I was introduced to this by a friend when I forgot my moisturizer for a trip and after that, theres not much else that I'll want to use for my body. My face is very sensitive, so I don't use it there as much, or really ever." in 49 reviews

I used this during my teen years when I had a lot of breakouts. Never broke me out. I stopped using it for a while and once I started feeling I was going to breakout, I used it again. Keeps my acne in check! Very moisturizing. I like the pump which makes it easy to use.

I have been using this moisturizer for years! I have combination skin, so this moisturizer works perfect at lubricating my dry areas, while not making my more oily areas- well more oily. I use this everyday.

This moisturizer is so light weight but definitely does the job! I live in Minnesota, so my skin gets dry easily. I layer is before my makeup and after I wash my face at night. This is such a good moisturizer for the price!!

I wasn’t too sure when I bought this product at the grocery store, but I’m actually very surprised at how nice it is on my skin. It seems like a nice neutral consistency, very moisturizing and not greasy. I use it every morning and every night and it’s not expensive at all. I actually really am happy with this.

I use this everyday at night. It really helped getting rid of my acne patches and lasts for so long. You only need a small amazing to cover your face and a little on the neck. I would recommended this to people who has dry skin but also people who have oily skin because I feel like it does cover most skin types. My only issue is that it can get a bit messy but it’s so easy to clean and seriously does what it says. It has really nice packaging, not overwhelming colours.
