I have tried virtually every skincare product on the market, ranging from La Mer products to Ivory soap, in an attempt to tame my combination, hormonally-sensitive skin. After reading the reviews of the Actives and Original version of this product, I purchased and tried both. Although the Original was lackluster and left a residue on my skin, the Actives literally changed my life. It cleared my skin up, leaves it balanced and smooth, and removes every trace of makeup and dirt! It wasn't too drying in the winter, and yet somehow as the weather reaches 90 I don't get greasy, either! Truly a wonderful product, and definitely worth a try for anyone, especially at this price point!

My husband has been a Sea Breeze ORIGINAL user also for approximately 30 years (if not longer). He used it to clean his face every day...sometimes twice a day. WHY discontinue a product that people have obviously used for this long??? He HATES the Actives product. He said it doesn't work and it doesn't leave his face with the clean, fresh feeling like the Original formula. There is NO COMPARISON! Please go back to the drawing board and someone make an executive decision to bring the Original back!! I agree with Annette in Charlotte, NC.....BIG MISTAKE to take it off the market! BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL FORMULA!!

      Comments about Sea Breeze Deep-Clean Astringent, Actives, 10 fl oz:

      Like a ton of others, my whole family has been using the ORIGINAL Sea breeze for 40 years. At some sad point, I could not buy it anymore, and I freaked. I called the company, and the woman was very nice and just said the company listens to all complaints and suggestions... well guess what that was about 10 years ago, and STILL they are not selling the original. It's a great example of pathetic poor management. Some smart investor should steal the formula and sell it under another name and make us all happy.*** BTW- you CAN buy a big jug of ORIGINAL Sea breeze at any beauty Supply Store!

          I have used Sea Breeze the ORIGINAL FORMULA for over 40 years. I have tried a lot of the other formulas and none of them compare to the original formula. Please bring back the original formula.

          Comments about Sea Breeze Deep-Clean Astringent, Actives, 10 fl oz:

          While I don't like this one as much as the Original formula, I do have to say that is is very effective, and does not dry out or irritate my sensitive, combination skin. It cleans my skin very effectively & deeply. My only real issue is the smell. Unlike the Original formula, it's really unpleasant, and I have to rinse out the cotton pads I use so that my bathroom doesn't stink for days.

          For skin burns - I often used the Original formula to treat mild to medium skins burns (such as from cooking), putting it on a cotton ball & taping it to the injured area with a band aid for at least about 20 minutes. This is still very effective for that purpose. I have no idea why, but it cools the burn quickly, and makes it hurt a LOT less in the long run, virtually taking all the pain away.

              Comments about Sea Breeze Deep-Clean Astringent, Actives, 10 fl oz:

              I have been using this religiously for years. I have very oily skin and I hate using moisturizer. This toner is just moisturizing enough so that I do not need a moisturizer, but acne/oil controlling enough to prevent breakouts. I use this both morning at night, sometimes skipping night time. After using this my make up glides on like a dream. This really helps to exfoliate and get rid of any dead skin laying on the surface. I am very acne prone and have tried so many products out there, high-end and drugstore. This is by far my favorite beauty product. I recently also purchased the Sea Breeze Clear Pore Astringent with 2% BHA for when I need more exfoliation. We'll see how I like that one.

                  This stuff is great. I almost bought a bottle on this website before I remembered there was a bottle in my parents room. It is easy to apply with a cotton ball and you will be AMAZED at all the dirt left behind after your usual cleanser. It is potent yet gentle enought for dry skin. I have an oily T-zone on my face but dry patches on my cheeks and this helps my combination skin. I really love it and would recommend it to anyone. The scent is a bit alcohol-y but it dissapates quickly and the clean, fresh feeling lingers which is amazing.

                    I have those annoying under-the-skin acne bumps, the tiny ones. I get them around my nose, on my chin and between my eyebrows. My new cleanser had already taken care of the major acne but this toner helped get rid of the little bumps under my eyes around my nose after a few days' use.
