Helps with breakouts!

By 

from Providence, RI

Comments about clearing skin wash:

I have adult acne and have used many different high end products this one by far has been the best yet. It can be a little drying so I just use it 2-3 days a week. Highly recommended!

Made my skin worse!!!

By

Comments about clearing skin wash:

I started breaking out really bad so i tried this product hoping it would work for me. It made my skin even worse and also gave me cysts acne all over my face. Now when i go out i have to wear makeup to cover up the acne because it is so awful. I wouldn't recommend.

Amazing!

By 

from Erie, PA

Comments about clearing skin wash:

I was using the Dermalogica Clay Cleanser and really liked it. I was running low so I ordered a new bottle. When it arrived I realized that I had accidentally ordered the Clearing Skin Wash. I decided to go ahead and keep it since it said it helps with adult acne, which I have. I have only been using it twice daily for four days and it has been amazing. Most of my acne has cleared up and my oiliness has decreased substantially. I am so happy that I decided to keep it.

Works like a dream

By 

from pennsylvania

Comments about clearing skin wash:

Skin type is naturally dry, sensitive & acne prone mostly around the mouth and bottom of cheeks. I borrowed some pumps from my sister to test out for a couple days, and it didn't take long at all for my pimples to diminish an heal. I've tried products like Lush's Fresh Farmacy (mostly made up of calamine for its natural healing qualities) but nothing has ever worked for me like this. My face looks clear, doesn't have redness after washing and it's SO soft even if I don't moisturize. It suds up nicely but minimally plus you only need a dime-sizes amount. I've had the 8.4 oz for well over 3 months now with a lot left after using it just about every day. So happy with everything.

Skin reacts great!

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about clearing skin wash:

I've been having big cystic acnes for about a year then I decided to go all out and got this, my skin seems to react very well as it keeps the skin in control and haven't seen any more acnes since. Took me about 2 months to notice the difference

Good wash

By 

from Philadelphia, PA

Verified Buyer

Comments about clearing skin wash:

It's a great cleanser. I love the gentleness and that it gets rid of makeup and everything all in one. It doesn't leave my skin feeling dry. I have tried more affordable cleansers that have been just as effective. Therefore, I'm not sure if I'll purchase again.

Great... but smells awful!

By 

from Minneapolis

Comments about clearing skin wash:

I got the smaller bottle of the skin clearing cleanser to try and I really like it and want to keep using it... but the smell is awful. It smells like a musty couch. Other people have said it smells good, so maybe I got a bad bottle. Hopefully I get used to it.
