I wouldn't recommend this for ordinary use, but if you have oily skin and are having problems with acne it might be a godsend. The purple Sea Breeze is the strongest formula they offer for fighting acne and is comparable to Noxema's Triple Clean Pads--both have the same concentration of Salicylic Acid and a few shared ingredients like eucalyptus and camphor. It doesn't smell any better than the Noxema product, just different (the camphor is less noticeable). While it stings and smells whiffy it has noticeably cleared up my acne with regular use. I develop a rash when I use anything with Benzoyl Peroxide (allergy?), and Dickinson's Witch Hazel made my skin peel and break out even worse, but this does the job well *and* costs less than other toners I've seen with 2% Salicylic Acid. 5 stars for effectiveness and value, -1 for the smell and stinging.

I really was looking for a good old original sea breeze but I couldn't find them any more. I bought this and the sensitive version to compare. This product, with salicylic acid, seemed to make sense for my body for my occasional body acne, but I felt that after applying this product and it dries on my skin, my skin feels somewhat sticky. I have other salicylic acid products for my body but they to not make me feel this way, and neither did the original sea breeze without salicylic acid, so I don't know what ingredient is exactly causing the stickiness. I don't mind having the product around as back up but I don't know if I will order it again.

                I have been using the orginal Sea Breeze toner for years and that works good. However, since they made the Sea Breeze Actives toner that I use now and its works the BEST!! It does a great job clearing up my pores. Although their is alittle sting you do get use to it on your skin and it works wonders. My skin stays acne free with using it twice a day morning and before bed time, pores are clear. Plus my skin is not dry at all !!

                Thank you to the makers of Sea Breeze Actives that really works to clear up acne skin, clears up pores of any black heads or white heads!!

                Comments about Sea Breeze Clear-Pore Astringent, Actives, 10 fl oz:

                I used Sea Breeze YEARS ago when my mother bought it. I don't remember which version it was or if they may have changed since then. I've used other 2% Salacylic Acid toners just to help clean my skin but they get pretty expensive at around $8 a bottle for about 1/2 the size. My only complaint about this product is that is actually makes me skin red after using it. It does go away, but I have to remember this if I'm running out the door fast and don't have time to let my skin calm down.

                  I have been using this for over 10 years now. I can tell when I have stopped using it because I get little bumps on my cheeks and T-zone area. I highly recommend it.

                    Leaves an oily residue

                    Comments about Sea Breeze Clear-Pore Astringent, Actives, 10 fl oz:

                    I'm a male in my 50s. Probably not the target demo for this product, but I like to use a simple astringent as an aftershave splash. The witch hazel products don't make it for me. It needs to be alcohol based. It should give a nice tingle, tighten up the pores, leave you feeling clean, and be almost totally unscented.

                    Noxzema used to make a great product - aimed at pimply teens - but discontinued it recently and I've been on the search for a replacement ever since.

                    This isn't it. It's strong; which is good. And it doesn't have as much of a scent as other Sea Breeze products; also good. But it leaves a filmy, oily residue that stays with you until you wash your face again. Really unpleasant.

                    I guess my search is not over.

                      Only version of Seabreeze that has 2% salycilic acid, which is what does the job.
