bad for acne

i had only been using this product for a week when it gave me a massive breakout

- Ulta User

i have/got at least like 15 -20 pimples in total

- Ulta User


causes flare ups

they either work or they do nothing and make my face a little red

- Ulta User

just lighting touching my face caused it to burn and whenever i put moisturizer on top it would turn red and splotchy

- Ulta User

pore minimizing

not pore minimizing

what happened to the old deep pore cleanser

- Sephora User

the old deep pore cleanser was perfect for combo skin that didn't overly dry or prematurely age you

- Clarisonic User



left with no other choice i tried one tube of this and it was awful, very drying, very harsh, very similar to cheap store brand cleansers

- Ulta User

this gel cleans, for temporary , and then it dries out my skin and make the pores even worse over time

So I got this product for Christmas along with the brush and acne brush head! Lemme tell you. It was amazing..at first. I had loads of acke the day of Christmas and just a week and a half of continual use one whole side of my face was reduced to smoother acne, acne was still there but not big a bumpy! That's when it started to go downhill. My face is currently red and itchy. I heard that the this stuff causes your face to "purge" and I understand this and I see it on my face but it is awful and I dont think it's the whole story! When I say its itchy it is ITCHY!! Like I'm waking up in the middle of the night even after a full face of moisturizer just clawing at my skin! :( it is even slightly below my chin in a rid line down my neck which is very red and itchy as well. I can't even have makeup on for too long, its just unbearable! I don't think this is an allergic reaction due to the fact there is nothing I'm allergic to that is listed. I only can hope that my skin will turn around like "its supposed to" and be "amazing". If this wasn't so drying I would recommend it, especially considering my skin is oily to begin with and my skin is feeling this way...not good! « less

I love this cleanser

I absolutely love this cleanser. I just got it recently, and I have been loving it. I'm not a huge fan of cleansers, I just don't really like taking the extra time to wash my face, but this one is absolutely worth it. My skin is very oily, and I mean EXTREMELY oily. It basically drips off of my face when I wake up in the morning. But this cleanser has helped tremendously with that. I use it before I go to bed and it helps control my oiliness the next day. When I don't use it, my face goes right back to being super oily. It also seems like it is clearing my pores and helping somewhat with my acne, but I'll have to use it longer to really determine that. But if you have really oily skin, this product is a must have! If you have dry skin, you might want to stay away.

This came in a Clarisonic brush kit so I gave it a try. I was surprised that I liked it as much as I did. I have acne prone skin and it helps so much. Favorite acne cleanser, but I wouldn’t use it if I had dry skin.

I think I have found the one ..

I was looking to replace my brush head and found a gift pack that included a brush head and this gel cleanser. I am very finicky about the products I use as I have oily skin with large pores that is prone to break outs of both small blackheads and large white heads. I have been using a combination of products to get the result that I need to keep the breakouts at bay. Sometimes. I gave this gel a try and I have to say, I love the results the first time out. My face didn't feel overly dry but it did have a nice matte appearance. It felt smooth and clean. My maintenance products went on well and I remained shine free for hours afterwards. I usually get my "shine" back about a half hour later, but not with this cleanser. I will continue to use it and update, if possible. Until then, I highly recommend this cleanser. At least give it a try for yourself... « less

I love this cleanser! I bought this after running out of the other cleanser by Clarisonic. I've dealt with cystic acne for years and this has cleared that up. I use it with the Mia2 only at night. I use a Cetaphil wash in the mornings. I see where some reviewers say this is harsh. Maybe I haven't experienced that because of only using it 1x/day. It has balanced my combination skin and cleared up my acne. I love it!
