This is a powerful product for drying up excess oil, but that comes at the price. Use a white towel, because it WILL bleach things, no matter how well you rinse your face. But this is a compromise I'm willing to make, because this is the best cleanser I've found.

I have uncomfortably oily skin, and anything that claims not to dry out your skin is usually ineffective for me. Especially with very soft water. This is the only cleanser I've ever found where no matter how soft the water is, my face actually feel CLEAN afterwards! Additionally, if I'm feeling particularly oily, I use it as an intensive (but cool and refreshing) facial mask.

I've been using the product since my dermatologist recommended it 5 years ago. Unfortunately, I've since moved around the world to places that don't sell it, so I've had to try other products. I've never found any that I like as well, so I still stock up and buy a few tubes every time I visit the US!

i got this because i was suddenly breaking out all over my face. i usually have fairly flawless skin, but this time it got bad. i used this product in the mask form twice in one week, and all over the side of my face got little, itchy bumps. i had to stop using and use a lot of lotion to get it to calm down. havent used it since, BUT my skin cleared up!

      Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask, 4.2 fl oz:

      Thought that this product was for cleaning medium to dry skin. And occasionally using it as a mask. Never read anywhere when I ordered it that it was for problem teen/oily/acne prone skin.
      So, have not opened it. Am afraid to use it.

      Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask, 4.2 fl oz:

      This is the BEST cleanser for my acne prone teenage daughter! It REALLY helps minimize her acne. It tends to dry out her skin and it will bleach your towels and washcloths, so use white ones. It is a great product... Works better than Proactiv!

        Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask, 4.2 fl oz:

        This face wash works for me. I don't see mind-blowing results but my acne has become MUCH MUCH better. Especially my forehead. I used to get so many little bumps and zits there but now, it's all cleared up. I definitely still break out from time to time, and this doesn't necessarily stop it. But, it does keep it from getting worse.

            Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask, 4.2 fl oz:

            Bought this based on all the positive reviews. Unfortunately, this did not work well with my skin. I have oily, acne-prone skin, and I wondered if this would minimize or keep my skin calm from acne. I think this product actually enhanced the skin problems, not that there was an issue, but I tried using this as a spot treatment on one pimple. It didn't do much. Doesn't work for blackheads either. It dried out my skin around my mouth and nose. But I like the cooling sensation and the way it made my skin feel clean. Overall, I won't purchase again.

              Comments about Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask, 4.2 fl oz:

              I really love this product, if solely for the fact that it's a daily cleanser and an exfoliating mask in one. While it isn't as effective against severe acne as I would have liked, you definitely get the tingling deep clean every time, and it leaves your skin feeling refreshed and very clean.

              Great alternative to pro@ctiv. Goes on smooth, smells great and has a nice tingly feeling. I alternate this with the scrub version and it keeps breakouts under control. Keep in on for several minutes in the shower. The key ingredient is the benzoil peroxide, which can be drying for some people but is the best for acne. I love the sweet-mint smell. Yes it will bleach your towels, so use white. It's the benzoil peroxide that does it. This is a staple for me!

                I've struggled with acne since my teens (now mid-40's) … this was the first product I found that consistently controls my acne. I very seldom have a single pimple now, and when I do, it is very minor and unnoticeable. I really feel the key is Benzoyl Peroxide, and this is one of the very few products that has it. I see that others complain about it bleaching out their towels, but I have never had that happen, and I've been using it for about 5 years now. I've never experienced any type of burning sensation when using this, either. Awesome product!

                  I've always struggled with blackheads and annoying visible pores. I have combination skin, with my cheeks tending to dry out while my chin and nose are oily. Within 2 days of using this product along with the pore refining toner and healthy face lotion. Using the cleanser once a day seems to be enough to balance my skin out. It's easy to use and wash off unlike some products directed at blackheads that are sticky of have beads. I haven't tried using it as a mask yet but i'm glad the option is there. I'm thrilled with the texture of my skin and am excited to see it continue to improve.

                    I just used this product for the first time, and I'm already happy with it! Almost all of my blackheads are gone after using it for a mask (left it on for about 10-15 minutes). It is a bit harsh, so it probably isn't good for sensitive skin, but I loved the feeling of it. It had a nice cooling feeling, and it dried without drying my skin. Based on a couple other reviews, I'm going to try this as a spot treatment for overnight.
