Ever since using this product, my mild acne has started to clear very fast; however, it does cause dryness all over my face so I reduced treatment to once a day instead of twice. Still a great product for those with oilier skin than myself!

I would not recommend this product to anyone. I do not have sensitive skin;however, this product broke my entire face out in a small, itchy rash. At first, I thought the product was bringing breakouts to the surface, but I quickly realized it was making my face itchy, broken out, and incredibly uncomfortable. The moisturizer did not provide enough moisture and my face was patchy and scaly.

Clear Proof® Clarifying Cleansing Gel- My son keeps this in his shower. The smell could be better, but the lather is awesome. A little goes a long way. It is great for the face, shoulders, neck and chest. Results have been tremendous.

I love the cleanser, but it did dry my face out horribly. I recommend those with sensitive skin use this no more than once a day. BUT! It sure cleared up my face! Even a cyst I got while testing the system cleared up in under a week as opposed to the usual 2-3 weeks. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone!

I had my daughter use this system because she has always had problems with acne. She said while there was very little irritation, it dried out her face. She would have to use the moisturizer several times a day and that didn't help.

This is an amazing face wash. It has helped to combat acne and helped to clear up current acne scars! I would recommend this, but would make sure to use a moisturizer and start with 1 application a day until your skin adjusts.

This face wash that I have gotten from Influenster has changed my life! I will never use another face wash again. It is very light, No residue, and I can't go A day without washing if needed. My face is SO clean while using it

Both me and my teenage daughter tried this line for a couple days. To our disappointment, we both ended up with a burning rash that didn't go away for a couple days. Though i did find I really liked the wash by itself, since there wasn't a lot of soapy feeling.

Not only did this completely dry out my face, but it also made me break out worse than usual. A week of usage was enough to decide that this product was not for me.

It makes my skin burn. I felt like more acne was appearing in places I've never had it before. It dries out my skin, and I'm on day 5 so I'm going to stop and switch back to my cetaphil.

Has anyone noticed skin irritation from using this? I'm on day 5 and I am getting little tiny bumps all over my cheeks.

I've been thinking about getting this but I'm wondering does it really clean up your acne? Is it worth the price?

Is anyone else having issues with it drying out their lips? Or maybe its just me? I'm so cautious about getting it anywhere near my mouth and it still seems to touch them when i rinse it off even with my lips pressed together. Just curious because I'm not sure if this is normal and if i should continue it
