Great product

I've got pretty oily skin and have been looking for a product that leaves my skin feeling oil free and clean while also clearing up blemishes and my skin. Well, this has turned out to be that product. I don't find it too drying and the bottle is huge...so I feel like I got a great deal.

Great cleanser! Exceptional Value!

I can't believe the size of this bottle! You get big bang for your buck! I have currently been using another acne wash and when I use this - the foaming power is excellent and there are no harsh beads to "exfoliate" more. It has no real medicinal smell, which is fantastic and this could be used all over the body if needed, due to the size. Leaves my face squeaky clean and free of oils.

Too drying

Used this for about three weeks and my skin went from bad to worse. At first I used it once a day and that seemed like too much as my skin was peeling and red. I started doing it every other day and the peeling was not as prevalent but I saw no improvement in my acne. I stopped using after three weeks.

Dry

This product dried out my skin too much. I have normal/combination skin and this did not do me any good.

Works well but moderately drying

The bottle size is awesome, this will last months so the price is justified. It was too much used daily, and dried me out a ton, but once every 3 days mixed with exfoliation and another wash works wonders.

Great product

So far, so good! I've used this product for about a week now and some of the redder areas on my face have been diminishing. Some people don't really like the fact that this product may leave your face feeling slightly dry and tight, but this is a strong, effective acne wash, that's kinda the point isn't it? After using this I immediately apply a good facial moisturizer and voila, no more dry skin! Excited to see the results after a few more weeks!

Hold the acid, please

As warned on the bottle, this dried my skin out extremely bad in certain areas when i started using it. I wash my face twice a day so i just rinsed quickly and used a lot of moisturizer afterwards. At first i think the drying out helped to prevent some breakouts but it didn't last. I ended up switching to something else before i finished the bottle, which lasted a few months.

So far so good

This is perfect for people with a little bit more problematic skin. It doesn't dry you out as bad as some of the other products but this also will help fight blemishes. So far, I've been very impressed.

Great stuff

If you read most of my reviews, you'll see that once something breaches the $30 mark my expectations climb and I become very picky. I was hesitant to drop $30 on a facial cleanser, but this stuff has been great so far. The bottle is huge, and about a dime sized amount will cover your whole face, so one bottle should last you a good long while. It's one of the better (if not the best) salicylic acid based cleanser I've tried and I'd recommend it to anyone who's averse to benzoyl peroxide face wash (as I am). My only critique is it can over dry your skin if you're not careful, but this also has to do with my skin type and skin care routine.

super drying

This was really harsh on my skin. It caused it to feel overly tight and my skin to peel. Maybe the trick is to use it once in awhile, but it did not work as a daily face wash for me.
