I've barely been using this stuff for a week now, but I've already noticed a HUGE difference in my skin. I've had acne since I was a teenager. Now at 20, I'm battling teen acne still AND adult acne. I can honestly say I've tried every high end brand that's supposed to work...I've been using Pro Activ because it reduced my acne, but I still had major breakouts. In the five days I've been using this product (morning and night) I haven't had one new blemish on my face. It's worked wonders so far... I can't wait to have a totally CLEAR complexion! It does dry your face out a little bit, but that's a small price to pay for clear skin, and can easily be fixed with a plain oil-free moisturizer.

I've been using this for about a week and a half. I have what I call "hormonal adult acne". When that time of the month arrives, it gets even worser, I am 49 years old, I have been suffering with acne since I was 21 years old. Proactive original formula worked beautifully..they changed the formula, it is too rough on my skin, very abrasive. I choose this product, because of some of the reviews I have read recently on drugstore.com. The product DOES DRY YOUR SKIN a little, what I have done was use a very small amount, put on your face and wash as soon as possible, do not leave on for over a minute. YOU WILL HAVE DRY irritated skin. AND FOLLOW UP WITH SOME KIND OF LOTION, or you will feel even worse. It has cleared me up a little, so I am going to try to stick with this for awhile, again just don't leave on your face too long while you are washing. I am also thinking of only using this once a day instead of twice, maybe that is where the drying out of the skin comes from. Also, I am going to try their moisture lotion, maybe the two together will bring better results. I would also like to wish all "Acne suffers" the best in trying to find OUR OWN CURES...

    Comments about Phisoderm Anti-Blemish Gel Cleanser, 6 fl oz:

    I'm finding out that salicylic acid cleansers don't work for me. I need benzoyl peroxide cleansers. Salicylic spot treatments are great, just not the cleansers. I was a faithful user of Proactiv until I tried experimenting with drugstore brands. After trial and error, I am glad to say I'm a new fan of Neutrogena Clear Pore &/or Mask Cleanser.

      This product works well for the price. It makes my skin feel fresh and makes my pores smaller (for a little while...). It doesn't dry my skin out and it's not harsh. It's not a miracle cure though.

            Comments about Phisoderm Anti-Blemish Gel Cleanser, 6 fl oz:

            I purchased this product on a whim.. I was on a trip, it was cheap and I was out of face wash. I could not believe how great this wash worked with my oily and acne prone skin. I wear heavy foundation daily; both liquid foundation and mineral powder foundation with concealer. My pores do not get properly cleansed of all makeup product because I am too lazy to purchase and use multiple skincare products before going to bed.

            I wanted just ONE thing I could use at night and in the morning to get all the gunk off. This is IT. My skin changed pretty dramatically. My pores were smaller, my acne was GONE, my skin looked polished and young. I still am not sure if it was just a lucky month for me or if this product actually worked.

            I only used the product for one month and I have NOT been able to find it at any drugstores since I purchased it. It is hard to find in my case. Delighted to see it is available here!

            After spending literally hundreds of dollars on high-end brand name facial cleansers, my esthetician recommended phisoderm. I tried it and was sold. It doesn't strip your face, yet it leaves skin feeling clean, not greasy when done. I love that it foams and has a mild, pleasant smell. I use it with my clarisonic facebrush every day. I have mature, combination skin that gets oily in the t-zone & I live in a hot & sticky climate. I use moisterizers & serums & usually don't skimp when it comes to my skin, but this is working great & it saves money. I highly recommend.

              Comments about Phisoderm Anti-Blemish Gel Cleanser, 6 fl oz:

              I was reaaaaally skeptical about even trying this after getting it in the mail and realizing that it's got a scent. My skin tends to be on the sensitive side so I thought I was going to end up with red blotches or something nasty-looking all over my face. But to my surprise, it works pretty well! It is definitely, in my opinion at least, a very nice smell and this stuff seems to help wake me up more/better (I have to wake up at 4:30am to get ready and leave for work). My skin feels like it's completely rejuvenated... at least until it starts to dry my face out in a few key spots (generally around both sides of my nose, and around my forehead and eyebrows). It doesn't seem to do all too much for my acne either; I mean it does good, but I think it miiiiight be some other things that are making it back-track.

              I did start working in a peanut factory since I started using this product and the salty air may be what's causing my face to dry out more. That just might also be contributing to the acne sticking around along with that I seem to touch my face a little more often while I'm in the factory due to cardboard/peanut debris flying up to my face. I alsooo do need a new facial scrubber - I've been using the same one for about a year now and I know I really need a replacement.

              I think I'm going to try the other version of this product for Normal-Dry skin and see if that helps. This product is perfectly fine with the Garnier Fructis Moisure Rescue, but if I can eliminate having to pay for a moisturizer then that would be fabulous - more money for more important things like gas for my car!

                My daughter, who will be 20 this year, has been using this product since high school. She had a bad case of acne when she was younger and it has worked very well for her. This product has been around a long time and is hard to find at local drugstores. We always order Phisoderm from drugstore.com because they offer this pproduct at a great price. I order at least three at a time, it is so affordable. Phisoderm and a normal topical acne cream keeps my daughter's pretty face nice and clear :)

                  Phisoderm Anti-Blemish Facial Wash works just fine. It didn't exactly prevent new pimples from forming, but it does help a little. The two main reasons why I wouldn't purchase this again is that it smells somewhat like men's cologne. Not strong, but I don't like it. Also, it doesn't lather as well as I would like my soaps to. It has a clear gel texture, that's sort of milky. After using this, my face doesn't feel super clean right after. I like that it didn't cause bad reactions to my skin, but it is a bit disappointing.
