Additional Information


Our daily, oil-control astringent helps treat acne and prevent future breakouts and blackheads. It’s also gentle enough to use morning, noon and night, because it won't over-dry or irritate your skin. This maximum strength formula contains Salicylic Acid, an acne-fighting ingredient recommended by dermatologists. It penetrates deep into pores to help remove the dirt, oil and makeup that can cause breakouts. It also instantly eliminates and controls excess surface oil, so you’re always ready to face the day.

Clear Pore Oil-Eliminating Astringent is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Literally burned my skin! I was super excited to purchase and use this. Initially I used it and it did sting a bit but I read that my skin would get used to it after a few uses. I loved the way it seemed to help take off access dirt and makeup build up that I missed. I proceeded to use it. Still stung. Until one day I used it and noticed it it burned really bad and after applying it to my face with a cotton ball I noticed several areas on my skin were white in color and patchy. This had never happened before so I washed the product off. The white patchy areas were still there and they still burned. I applied coconut oil to my face. Still there. The next morning I woke up with scabs in the areas that were white! I knew my skin was semi-sensitive but geez. Never have I ever experienced a facial product that literally burned my skin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fell in love but.... I bought this three weeks ago and I've been using it twice a day. It started working great and I would even feel tingly. I wouldn't break out and my skin was clearing up. Starting a couple of days ago it starting burning more and more. Today I looked at my face and it looked kind of burned. It was over dry even though I use moisturizer. I use the neutrogena naturals which is amazing. But it's not enough. Its overly dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have I use this product every night. It is gentle and helps prevent acne from forming. I never thought to use it in the am as well. Tomorrow will be a first. My acne has been a little worse lately (probably due to stress). Hopefully twice a day will cure it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from helped reduce my acne! Ever since I started to use the astringent, I noticed that my skin in less red and that my pores are starting to go away as well. I have very bad acne scars also and the astringent did wonders! I will be honest and say that once I run out, I don't immediately buy it again only so I can figure out what are the causes to my acne and to note differences, but hand's down best product ever along side the stress-control toner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Night and day My son had terrible acne blackheads,whiteheads,zits and oily skin. He uses the daily wash 2x a day, stubborn acne spot treatment and oil eliminating astringent 2x a day. The results are miraculous. The astringent has helped the oil to decrease and the other two products have reduced breakouts. I am very satisfied. Wish I could post a before and after pic:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did wonders I had a significant increase in break outs after quitting birth control. This saved my skin. I'm still breaking out here and there but the cystic acne has gotten better and I'm overall more clear. Does not over dry.
