I just switched from my Proactiv facial cleanser to this recently, I'm not a fan that this does not sud up well, and It hasn't cleared up my skin a whole lot. I have relatively normal/oily skin, and I switched from Proactiv because it broke my face out from overly exfoliating. This cleanser has an amazing smell, and is not too powerful. However, I use this day/night after I throughly wash my hands. I use this without a clarisonic, and I do see that some of my breakouts have deceased. I did have a bad case of breakouts on my lower jaw line but I'm hoping that was from a toner that I stopped using, this does not keep black heads away. I would recommend this with a clarisonic, or buy an acne cleanser from another brand.
