    Honestly, when I first started using this...It really hurt my skin. It's the menthol in it. It can physically hurt your skin the first few times using it. But I decided to stick with it, because I didn't want to waste it. And overall, I was pleasantly surprised with this product.

    PROS: Leaves a truly clean feel, removes blackheads (depending on severity), pretty good for acne control compared to other products.

    CONS: First few uses can make skin very irritated.

    After using this product for a few weeks, I find it works better than more expensive products I have tried.

    OVERALL: Recommended to all acne suffers, but only start out using a small amount of cream and once a day (to minimize irritation).

    The funny thing is I've been using this cream cleanser for around 2 years. I stopped using because I ran out and Clean and Clear also TESTS ON ANIMALS. When I stopped using it my skin just got better! and felt better. I found that it doesn't clean properly, and that
    'tingly feeling' that supposed to mean it's cleaning is just the menthol, which is harsh and ineffective on the skin. I have normal slight acne skin and I will never use this again! There are so many other better things, buyer beWARE.

        This has menthol in it. Who'd put menthol in a facial cleanser? I used it because I ran out of my regular facewash and my friend gave me this but the menthol factor ticked me off..

              I like this cleanser a lot. It helps with my moderate acne, smells nice, and keeps my skin feeling refreshed and clean. Between this and Neutrogena Deep Clean, I would opt for Neutrogena, but I like this product a lot and it works just about as well. With constant use, folks who have moderate (i.e., once per month) acne will see an improvement in their acne and their skin's tone and texture.

                  I really liked the tingly, clean feeling I got from this cleanser, but other than that I didn't notice any improvement in my complexion. It doesn't have a sickening smell and does leave your skin feeling clean, however, so that's a plus. However I wish it would have cleared up my skin just a little bit. Overall, okay product but I would only use it as a basic cleanser since it didn't seem to do much.

                      Clean and Clear is a great budget brand, and many of the products contain salicylic acid, which is a terrific exfoliant, but alcohol and menthol are known irritants to most skin types (not just sensitive skin), and many of the products in this line contain these. This would be a wonderful cleanser if only it didn't have the menthol. Everyone seems to like the "tingle" and the smell, but that's what is irritating your skin. There is absolutely NO reason to put it in a cleanser.

                        I bought this product to try something new, but it only made my moderate acne worse! I got whiteheads all over my face, and it made my semi-dry skin oily to the point where I was wiping my face with a towel hourly.

                          I used this product several years ago and was fairly loyal. But something happened along the way, and I strayed. I bought some more recently and wasn't as enamored of it as I once had been. I think it works ok, but I felt like it left my skin feeling greasy. It reminded me a lot of Noxzema. I've since switched to the new Clean & Clear gel facial cleanser (green in a pump bottle) and like it better.
