Clean&Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser

image credit:

As you all may know, I have the most sensitive, acne-prone skin imaginable. Luckily my acne is kept under control with the help of my fab dermatologist-but I do get break outs from time to time. As I have learned, there is no cure for acne. There are only products that can help keep it under control.
I was very surprised when my dermatologist told me that the best cleanser to use for acne-prone skin is from Clean and Clear! I figured that high end products would be the doctor's pick. But that was not the case. I was really happy when she told me to go to my local drugstore and pick up Clean and Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser. This acne cleanser contains 10% Benzoyl Peroxide, which helps fight off bacteria. I suppose that is what doctors like best-that it has a higher pecentage of Benzoyl Peroxide because most cleansers have less than that.

Product Description:
"Daily Cleanser that keeps fighting breakouts long after you wash."-from bottle

Active Ingredient:
Benzoyl Peroxide-10%

My views/thoughts:
I apply this cleanser mornings and night. I wet my face then I rub in the cleanser and massage it on my face for about 30 seconds and I get this immediate tingle and cool feeling on my face. The smell reminds me of menthol (which is an ingredient in tis cleanser)but I don't think it is overpowering at all. When I rinse off the products my face feels really clean and cool. Even after I rinse, I still get that cool tingle on my face which I love.
I also love the fact that this cleanser does not irritate my skin or make it red. It does not dry out my face either which is a plus. After I rinse off the cleanser I apply a facial moisturizer to lock in moisture on my face.

I have been using this cleanser for about 5 months (though I must admit that it is on and off because I do like to try out new cleansers...but unfortunaltey, some don't work as well for me. No matter what, I always come back to Clean and Clear Continuous Contril Acne Cleanser.) and I really love it. This cleanser helps control my acne and keep me clear. I believe this cleanser is HG status and I am glad that my dermatologist recommended this for me. I am also happy that I dont have to spend a fortune for this stuff (it cost me $6.89 in my local CVS).
I recommend this cleanser fopr those who are acne prone. Give it a try, what have you got to lose? And its dermatologist recomended which is a plus!

Have any of you tried this cleanser? What are some of your favorite cleansers for acne? Please let everybody know in the comments!
