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 use the product twice a day (morning and night) to clean my skin. I have less breakout during those times of the month. This product is also great to use as a mask.

    Works as well as Proactive but Cheaper

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

          It's crazy more people don't use this becuase it has the same active ingredienta as Proactive and is far chapear and with no mass marketing hassle. Yes it can stain clothing if it's not washed off completely and it can be harsh if you leave it on too long but it works far better than most any other product. I would recommend using as a cleanser only, not a mask. It was recommended to me by a dermatologist. I just bought 6 of these because they are hard to find in stores.

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

          I don't get it. I have very dry skin, but this product seems to leave my skin very soft and moisturized even though it is targeted to people with oily skin. This minimized my pores and got rid of my uneven skin tone fast! As with any BP product, it has the chance to bleach towels, shirt collars, etc. so be careful and rinse off thoroughly! There was a slight burning/tingling feeling after a couple seconds of applying it, but it wasn't unbearable.

            Neutrogena is the best product for my skin - which is oily t-zone and enlarged pores.

            I love Neutrogena products. And I love this as a mask. As a cleaner, I don't have a clean enough face and need to really use a lot and get it foamy to use and make a difference. Use as a mask.

            I just started using this product and so far I am loving it. It is very effective. I use it in the morning after I run and before I do my make-up. I also keep a gentle cleanser on-hand in case my face starts feeling too dry, but when I have break-outs, this stuff is helping!

              Salicylic acid CLEANSERS don't do much for my acne. I need benzoyl peroxide cleansers. After experimenting with several drugstore brands, I finally found my saving grace! I've been using Neutrogena clear pore cleanser and mask and it doesn't dry out my skin like Panoxyl or Dermatopix (which also doesn't help out my acne). I just ordered Neutrogena Clear Pore daily scrub, which I think is basically the same thing, only with .2% more BP and will give a review of it after using it. I am just so happy!

                  I have tried many facial cleansers, I use mostly Origins products and a few from Neutrogena due to my sensitive skin. I tried this because nothing was really helping with the blackheads. Usually cream cleansers have not been helpful. To my surprise this cleanser is remarkable! I have a 10x magnification make-up mirror and could see how clean and smaller my pores are after using this product, My skin looks and feels better.
