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!

    I did find this product effective as an overnight mask. Do not combine with other products during use since that will cause dryness.

        2 minutes is all I could tolerate. If you have sensative skin- TEST it first to see if you can tolerate! My face is still swollen, hot and red 1 hr after I tried to use as a clenser- not a mask. Thank goodness I did not keep it on longer than 2 min! I never felt the BURN UNTIL IT WAS RINSED OFF- BE CAREFUL!!

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

            This is my favorite cleanser that i use. (i have multiple routines through out the day.) I rarely use this as just a quick cleanser or even as a mask. if i have bad acne and many pimples i will use it as an all over mask for about 30 minutes. for the everyday whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples i will use this as a spot treatment. It is an extremely amazing spot treatments so when i leave it on over night, in the morning the pimple or problem area is greatly minimized or gone! It is a magic product... I LOVE IT!

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

              I've been using this product for a few years now and love it. This product contains benzoyl peroxide, which, for me, works much better than salicylic acid. I use it nightly as a cleanser. I would leave it on my face for a couple minutes while I brush my teeth to allow the benzoyl peroxide a chance to work and kill the bacteria. This routine seems to keep my face fairly clear. Sometimes when I travel I would use another cleanser (to avoid carrying the big tube and checking in bags) and if I go too many days without using it, pimples would start cropping up. I would recommend this product if other benzoyl peroxide products have worked for you in the past.

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

              I had been using Biore's acne cleanser for a while, and it was working alright and my skin cleared up, so I bought another cleanser to replace it with, Bad idea. The next day my skin starting breaking out horribly, as in the entire left side of my face, and on my chin. I bought this product before and tossed it to the side thinking I would never use it again. A few days later, my skin is clearing up well. All of my blemishes are smaller and lighter (aside from one pesky one that just won't die), and the small bumps on my chin are gone. I hope the results stay this way. :)

              I tried daily oral antibiotics, creams from my dermatologist, facials from a nurse esthetician, and many different expensive products to get rid of my adult acne. None of them came anywhere close to working as well as this Neutrogena product does. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't found this because nothing else worked! I have sensitive skin and this does not cause irritation. I make sure to always use a good moisturizer with SPF after washing in the morning (e.g., Eucerin).

                    This product is great. I have adult acne on the jaw and the product is great. I have tried alot of things and this is very effective. I just pay attention to my skin condition and if it starts to get to dried out I don't use the product for a day or two.
                    AWESOME!!

                      Well i bought this product a while back and used it as a mask never as a cleanser and didnt like how it felt as a mask so i put it to the side and begin buying other products that i thought would help clear my adult acne well after months of trying different products and never being fully satisfied because A) They didnt work or B) They dried out my skin, i decided to come back to this and try it as a cleanser.. Well that buy far has been the best decision ive made in regards to my skincare. Not only does this product help with my adult acne but it also keeps my skin moisturized..I only use it at night in the shower and what i do is ill work a good lather in my hand than massage it on my face for a good 30 secs. Than ill leave it on my face for 1 minute and rinse off.. Great Product
