Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Increasingly hard to find :( I've used this product since high school. Lately it's been harder and harder to find. It worked great for my skin in high school, and now in my late 20's, I've found that it's the only facial wash that I'm not allergic to and doesn't painfully interact with the prescription acne topicals I use. Unfortunately I can't even find it on Amazon at a reasonable price anymore so pretty soon I will have to start the quest through the skincare aisle again. I really love this product. I just wish I didn't have to jump through hoops to find it! Mar 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bring this, or something better, back! I've been using this for a few years now, it's not perfect but it's one of the best products I've ever used for my skin. I have a few bottles left, but I'll miss them when they're gone. Jan 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Discontinued?? :( This face wash is the absolute best, but I am terrified that it has been discontinued. I've been using this for years, and I've been buying it online for the past 2 years since they stopped carrying it in stores, and it is out of stock here :(. This is the only product that works for me. The foam and the scrub aren't as good, the foam doesn't do anything for my acne, and the scrub is too harsh. If it is discontinued, is there an equivalent product? Jan 5, 2015

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product for African Americans Being African American, its not easy to purchase product(s) that works for bumps and a radiant look after washing your face. I received a nice radiant look after washing my face and over the week my skin was glowing. Not to forget, when I seen a bump growing off my face and neck than placed a little on it and wash it three times and it proceeded to go down and soon went away. It sounds cliché but its true and I was just experimenting and it worked. Who would have known that a product that I was given I would purchase continuously. I won! Finally! Its worth the expense!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product I've had a problem with recurring acne in my hair-line for a while now that I couldn't solve until I started using this. No more pimples. Something about the smell lifts my mood as well. Skin care and aroma-therapy all-i-one! Nov 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this cleanser it really works wonders. I love and I mean love this cleanser it works better than any high dollar face wash. I used it when I was overseas in the military and it worked wonders. I continued to use it when I returned home, but all of a sudden it disappeared from the shelves. I have been looking high and low for this face wash for a year or more. I haven't been able to find it in my local stores. I searched online a year ago and couldn't find it either. Finally three days ago I found it at my local Marshalls. So I decided to try again to find it on the web and found that it is on the web now. Thank You Neutrogena Oct 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This stuff is WOnderful!!!! I have acne but in addition to that I also have Systemic Lupus and PCP MS and by a stroke of luck we found an article that said that sometimes for some people Salicylic acid will aid both with the MS Lesions and with the Lupus Butterfly rash as well as with the sun allergy/lesions and for me this product was able to replace my Clinique products that I can no longer afford. But in addition to this it has also cleared up the sun lesions this summer, keeping my face, neck, shoulders and arms from looking like I was attacked by som type of skin eating virus or bacteria. I was very disappointed to see you take the Clear Pore Soothing Gel Astringent off of the market. At least I cannot find it on your website. Thanks again for keeping me from looking like more of a freak that I am from having both MS and Systemic Lupus. Aug 30, 2014
