When I got this sample I was a little bummed because although I have combination skin, I'm lucky to only get the very occasional blemish, so it didn't seem relevant to me. I decided to give it a shot because I was excited to finally try this brand. It seemed to cleanse well, but with no blemishes I couldn't judge it's acne fighting power. Soon after using it a few times, I realized my skin looked terrible, and without putting the two together, I kept using it to fight the new and frequent blemishes. I had changed absolutely nothing in my routine or diet other than the wash, and after a friend who also sampled it said it was making her break out, I decided to take a break and see if my skin cleared up. Almost instantly after going back to my old wash my skin was back to normal. I've stopped using the wash and my skin looks a million times better again, after changing nothing else in my routine or activities. I find it ironic that it's supposed to fight acne, and it did nothing but cause it.
