Honest reviews


So far, so good.

I have extremely dry, sensitive, acne prone skin. I have tried a number of methods for dealing with my acne and this is the first time I have been satisfied with a product. Pro-Active used to make my skin red and peel off and so after discontinuing the use of their products, it has been years since I have tried another product for acne.This product is awesome for those suffering with dry skin that is prone to blemishes. I have been using this for two weeks now and the results have been amazing for me. It has helped push out the blackheads that have been lingering in my skin for lord knows how long and has helped reduce the redness and number of new blemishes popping up. I have not used this product in conjunction with another Clear Complexion product but have been using it with the Calming lotion and cream from Aveenos other product line. This could be another reason for the fantastic results.Again, I would definitely recommend this product for those with DRY skin – not sure how well it would do on oily skin since it is cream based.

Very good for dry skin

I’ve tried plenty of cleansers – Neutrogena Acne Cleanser, Clinique, Estee Lauder Cream Cleanser, St Ives Olive Cleanswer etc. All of them pretty much dried out my skin except this one. After using this, my skin doesn’t feel tight. Instead, it feels really moisturized and I think this is the “residue” the other reviews are talking about. Overall, I prefer this one because it can take away the dirt and make up without taking out the oils.

Great product

I have combination skin that is sensitive and acne prone. My oily areas get very dry in the winter, though, and harsh cleansers only make all of this worse. This product helps with almost all of these problems- the Salicylic Acid helps prevent acne, while the cream helps sooth and moisturize the dry areas. I’m not sure if this product will work as well for me in the summer when I don’t have any dry skin, but it is my savior right now!

perfect cleanser

i wear foundation and blush everyday and this cream cleanser takes it all off very easily without drying my skin. it doesn’t foam, it’s just a plain cream. it also has small little “exfoliating” balls in it, but i doubt they really do anything. but it’s ok cuz all i really wanted was the cleanser and don’t-dry-my-skin-out part. also, it’s hecka cheap on amazon. doooo it

This is non-irritating and has no scent. I have combination skin so use this in the morning and something with a little more bubble and cleaning power at night. One star off for not really being a cream cleanser – it has little hard balls in it. Boo. Otherwise, awesome.
