This works well on acne, but I do feel like it leaves a bit of residue on my skin. I still give it 4 stars as it removes makeup and dirt well, and does clear up acne. If I am breaking out, I will put some on the spot and let it sit for an hour or so before washing my entire face. I do feel the need to use toner after I wash with this. I bought this on sale at Harris Teeter and feel it was a good value for the money.
