Would definitely recommend using this as a mask rather than a cleanser. It's a bit to harsh for my skin to use everyday. But I love using this mask on days where my skins is being really troublesome and needs to settle down! My spots and breakouts become less red, they become flatter, and they get the medicated treatment they need to start healing.

My acne prone combo skin craves this stuff, my skin responds great to benzoyl peroxide and this product is one of the best I've tried, I wouldn't recommend for sensitive skin as it's pretty harsh on the skin, I use it twice a week as a cleanser and it gives me great results.

This is one of my holy grail products. A couple years ago I developed some pretty severe, painful cystic acne. I went to a dermatologist and was prescribed Epiduo, which ended up making my skin worse before it got any better. I started using  as my daily cleanser and saw immediate improvement in my skin. Seriously amazing.

Was using this everyday and everything was working perfect, but I was running out of my bottle and the very last day I used it, it turned my skin bright red!? It really irritated it. Not sure if it was due to it being almost gone or if my skin was having an off day or what

This is a great multi use product because it can be used as just a cleanser or a mask. It does a great job deep cleaning the skin and preventing acne breakouts. I use the mask to make sure all impurities under the surface of the skin are cleared out at least once a week.

ALL TIME FAVORITE CLEANSER. seriously, the two in one cleanser and mask is amazing, it helped so much with clearing up my acne and keeping my oil production to a minimum. I would highly recommend this to anyone with acne issues, and I will repurchase over and over again!

This is my go to for when I really need a face clean. I mostly use it as a mask but also as a quick clean. It feels refreshing when I put it on and leaves me skin feeling energized. My only complaint is how hard it is to wash off after you leave it on for a few minutes.

Hate to say it but because of my skin type it didn't work for me. It did feel like it cleaned my pores but when I rinsed it off my skin was beat red so maybe for some people this will work but I think it just depends on your skin type. Neutrogena® Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask

This is the best benzoyl peroxide cleanser I've found (and I've tried a lot). The fact that you can use it as a mask is a nice added bonus. I've tried a lot of different acne-fighting ingredients and my skin responds best to benzoyl peroxide. So, I've been using this on/off for 5 years or so.

I first discovered it on Amazon but now I just buy it from Walmart. I found that this is very gentle on my skin and doesn't tingle or irritate my skin. It does a great job of deep cleaning my pores and minimizing breakouts.

Since I have extremely oily skin, I like to use it as a mask 3-4 times a week. It rinses off very easily and is great for use in the shower too (leave on while lathering, shaving, etc., then rinse off before getting out). It leaves my skin feeling really smooth and then I follow up with an oil-free moisturizer.

I see that now more companies are trying to do the cleanser/mask thing and I've tried a couple of them, however, Neutrogena does it best! I always come back to this one. It also works great as an overnight spot treatment! It reduces the sizes of pimples and makes them less noticeable.

I use this mainly as a spot treatment instead of a full mask unless my skin is really bad, and it does a great job. It's a little too intense for me to use as a daily face wash but I like the cooling sensation it has when its used as a mask. And its a really great price.

I have been looking for a face mask for about a week. The problem is that my face tends to breakout easy. You can say I have sensitive skin, has anyone used this product with sensitive skin not caused them to breakout ?
