As a mask, this product caused my skin to get red, burn, and itch, but as a cleanser it only gets slightly red, but it has reduced my breakouts and made my skin less oily. I have very sensitive skin, so if you also have sensitive skin, I wouldn’t recommend using it as a mask or very frequently as a cleanser. The fragrance and the cooling effect on the skin is very nice.

Review for: Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask, 4.2 fl oz more...
I am in love with this product! It can be used as either a mask or a cleanser, as the bottle states, and it’s effective as both. You can feel the tingle, that means it’s working! I got mine for about $6 at Walgreen’s, which can’t be beat. The only downside it is that I find it a bit drying. Just make sure to follow up with a good moisturizer.

Very powerful. Can be very rough on the skin too. Very strong smell. But I works like crazy. Use it as a mask 1x per week and you'll see results. NOT for sensitive skin. Unless spot treating.

I love that this is a 2 in 1 product. You can either use it as a face wash or as a mask. It has a great cooling sensation which I personally love. I feel so refreshed after using this products. It is in a great price range especially because it is a 2 in 1.

I love this product. It can be used as a cleanser or a mask, which is great when my skin starts breaking out. I've been using this product for years, it's super affordable but does the work of an expensive cleanser.

It works so good and fast omg. Like it actually cleared my face right up. It’s very gentle if you ask me it tingles but not so much to where it is unbearable. Cheap as well. If I could upload a pic of my skin before n after I would y’all I really would

I have been using this cleanser for quite a while and I really like the results. For my skin type, I do not usually have trouble with acne but once in a while I may break out due to stress and little sleep. Based on the active ingredient benzoyl peroxide, this can be used to cleanse the impurities in the pores and can prevent break outs. I think it is more effective as a mask instead of a face wash since there is more contact time with the skin. When I use it as a mask, I feel a cooling sensation but others may think of it as a stinging feeling. 

However, I would suggest using this as a mask only once a week after cleaning your face. The reason is that this product can dry your skin. If used as a mask, your skin may be red after rinsing off the product but for me it does not stay red that long. In addition, you must be careful when being out in the sun since your skin may be sensitive if you continuously use this product everyday. 

Whereas, when I feel like a pimple may form, I may use this product as a spot treatment. I'll place the product on the area I feel a pimple forming and let it dry for 5 minutes before washing it off. Usually by the next day the pimple will not form completely and so I wouldn't have a pimple. 

Overall, I would recommend this product since it has been effective for me. However, I would suggest going to a dermatologist to find the best type of skin care routine for your acne troubles and skin treatment.

OMG!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! I have very oily skin and very large pores. In turn I get black heads and lil bumps all over my face. I have tried so many different facial products and haven't found ANYTHING that has cleared my face up like this Neutrogena stuff has. My problem is I'm almost out and can't find it ANYWHERE! I bought on the clearance shelf at Walgreens. It can be used as a mask or a regular daily face wash. I usually use it as a face wash, but about once a week I put it on as a mask and wash off after about 10 mins. It's white and sort of gritty, which I like products that have that "scrub texture" as I said my face it pretty oily and scrubs seem to cleanse better. There is also a microderm ingredient that is stated on the bottle that aids in cleansing pores, clearing up skins, and reduces large pores. My face has never been so clear and smooth, I think... Probably EVER!! I hope I can find this product again! I totally recommend for anyone with the same issues, oily skin, blackheads, acne bumps, and/or large pores, to try this product out and literally in just a few days of daily use my face cleared up dramatically! Not to mention my face almost glows clean and feels good. I've gotten compliments on how my skin looks and that hasn't happened in a very long time as I am getting close to 40 years old!! Thank you, Neutrogena, and I hope this product is not discontinued as I believe its a GREAT PRODUCT!!

I really love how you could use this in two different ways from a cleanser to a mask. It feels fantastic on the skin with a filling effect. Although this is my first time using it I will definitely buy again.

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 ?
