Specifically formulated for acne-prone skin, SkinCeuticals Clarifying Cleanser combines salicylic acid, an FDA approved acne treatment, with the exfoliating powers of glycolic and mandelic acids to unclog pores and help improve the appearance of problematic skin. The cleanser also includes smoothly rounded microbeads to gently slough off dead skin cells and cellular debris. Used in conjunction with SkinCeuticals Blemish Control Gel, this gentle cleanser treats existing whiteheads, blackheads, and other acne-related blemishes, while helping to prevent future acne breakouts.

This product absolutely cleared my skin up. And quickly too. Only problem is, you will definitely need a good moisturizer, as this dries my skin out a bit.

I use this cleanser daily with my Clarisonic. It works great. I am prone to acne, but this keeps it at bay. You have to use a little extra to get it to form up (which I dont really like too muh foam when I am using my Clarisonic) It really cleanses my skin and doesn't dry it out either. I thought it might be too harsh for daily use, but it is not for me. I bought it along with the SkinCeuticals light foam cleanser, Yuk. That one went back. This one is a keeper!!

I have mixed feelings about this cleanser. The tiny microbeads make my skin feel very soft and clean and it does a decent enough job of keeping acne away. The problem with it is that it doesn't foam up very much, and it doesn't remove my eye makeup at all. I prefer a cleanser that gets both my face & eye makeup off at once so that I save time at night. I'd say this cleanser is just so-so.

I'm over 40 and have acne brought on by stress and this product does not seem to help that type of acne. Blemish type breakout OK, deep acne, not so effective.

This product has smoothed out my face like you wouldn't believe. My acne around my "T" zone is gone. Around my hair line as well. This product has made people really notice my skin. I love this product.

I'm 36 and just over the past year my skin has changed considerably and I've become really prone to breaking out. I went to a dermatologist and tried out many different products including retin-a and prescription medications - SkinCeuticals is the ONLY product that has worked thus far and for the first time in a year, my skin is finally clear and looking really good. I can only use it once a day though, otherwise my skin becomes too sensitive. I use a non-alphahydroxy cleanser for mornings and SkinCeuticals at night. Love it. I will continue to use it for as long as my skin keeps looking good!

SC Clarifying Cleanser is my first SkinCeuticals product, it is a very good cleanser, although a bit hash. Very good for acne prone skin. Be remember only cleanser is not enough get clear, other products should be add into your regiment, such as retinol cream and patience. Overall Skin Ceuticals is a reliable and professional brand in the world.

I have oily skin with breakouts here and there. This cleanser is okay, but I didn't find it as groundbreaking as the other reviewers did. It does a decent job of cleaning, there is no dry or stretched feeling, but I think if you're sensitive, you won't want this. It has tiny scrub particles, which I don't think really exfoliate you, but irritate more. The worse part is the tub. It leaks out the cleanser way too much.

My husband and I both use this product and between the two of us using it twice a day the 5oz bottle has lasted us several months. It is a great product and a really good value!

I have pretty sensitive skin so this cleanser wasn't the best choice for me. The glycolic and mandelic acids really irritated my face and made me break out worse.

I have noticed a great improvement in my skin since using this cleanser. Initially, I started using it once a day and worked up to twice a day. I hardly ever have a breakout!

I suffer from adult acne and have tried close to everything on the market and at the dermatologist's office, and I absolutely love this product! It does not over dry and has helped with my whiteheads and cystic ance

I have normal to dry sensitive skin and this cleanser does not irritate or overdry. I use it twice a day and follow up with Skinceuticals B5 gel, moisturizer, and sunscreen. These are the best products I have found after years of trying different skincare regimes. My skin feels clean, hydrated, and looks clear and healthy. Highly recommend!

I am allergic to many many products, but this cleanser was recommended to me by my plastic surgeon and it works like a charm. Can be a bit drying in low humidity but my sunscreen takes care of that.

Believe me you don't need more than a pea size of this cleanser to wash your face. You skin will feel so clean and smooth. It's great on oily skin and it's not drying! I am sure this tube will last at least 4 months!
