Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only cleanser that work for me My face would break out a lot in my whole teenage life. And I've tried Pro Active, Clean N Clear etc. but nothing worked! So i switched to natural remedies which was honey and water with baking soda, and they did work but honey was too messy and baking soda with water dried my face. So i found this cleanser 3 months ago. and even though i have a bad habit of not washing my face twice a day, everyday, and a few time i tend to sleep with makeup. I have only found a couple of small pimples in the 3 months, which is way better with other products. I also have notice that my scars are disappearing. And also i got a free lip gloss with my cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product I have invested hundreds of dollars in acne products at sephora, aveda, and proActiv. I bought this on a whim, because I was so fed up with my skin problems. I had beautiful skin in high school, but then I hit college and started getting terrible acne. I would even wake up with painful under the skin cysts. This is the best cleanser I have ever used in my life, and I have even made my own natural organic cleansers. The price is just an added bonus! The smell is delightful as well. My skin has cleared up so much in a week of using this. I haven't even had any new breakouts. Thank you Burt's Bees! I will definitely buy again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please don't discontinue!!! I can't find the acne solutions cleanser at any store or online. Please, don't discontinue this product. I have been using this cleanser for many years. I have sampled many other cleansers, drugstore to high-end brands. But I always immediately came back to this. This cleanser does such a good job of cleaning off my non-waterproof mascara, minimal friction required and the mascara just slips off and rinses away. It doesn't burn the eyes either. Even the Burts Bees cleansing oil burns my eyes and requires scrubbing to remove my mascara. This does not irritate my skin at all and doesn't dry it out. My face feels refreshed and clean after use. Please, don't discontinue this wonderful cleanser!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love! Love, love, LOVE this product. I have used so many different acne products I can't even count them all. I developed adult acne just before my 29th birthday and it practically devastated me because I have never had acne before in my life. I went through 30 or so products before finding Burt's Bees at a local market and thought "what can it hurt?" I almost instantly fell in love following the first use. I didn't have the allergic reaction I've had with so many so I was sold right there. But, it also felt refreshed and although it does leave my skin slightly dry- its nothing that the moisturizing lotion doesn't take care of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cleanser Ever I've been a devoted user of this cleanser for years now and it is by far the best face wash I have ever used. I have very oily skin that's sensitive and prone to breakouts, and this stuff really helps keep it clear. It doesn't irritate my skin or make it feel dry or tight, it actually feels soft and hydrated, which is something I've never experienced from an acne face wash before. The only issue I can come up with is that it's a very thin, watery cleanser, so you have to be careful when you squeeze it out and when you rub it together in your hands, otherwise it'll just go everywhere. But it's a very small thing to deal with for how amazing this cleanser is, please don't ever discontinue it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think it's working Lately my face has looked like I am a teenager again. I quit using the garden tomato complexion soap in favor of this, along with the garden tomato toner and it seems to be working. The cleanser pours a little thin, but does lather up with a little water. It cleans my skin completely without drying it out and seems to be clearing up my skin. In this instant gratification society we expect things to work quickly, but the best things come to those who wait. I've been using it for two weeks and I'm convinced it's the reason my face is clearing up. Keep in mind, things always take time to work when you're dealing with skincare.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for Everyone!! I was looking for a natural face cleanser because all the ones I have had previously dried out my face too much, so naturally (haha) I chose this one. The first time I used it my face felt so sticky and the feeling didn't go away for a long time. I had my sister try it and she noticed the stickyness but it went away quickly for her. After using it a couple more times, I kept getting the sticky feeling and my face has gotten very dried out and bumpy-ish. I think I typically have sensitive skin and this product was not gentle enough for me. Overall I think it helped my acne somewhat, but I have gotten deep hard zits on my chin. Could this be a reaction to the Salicylic Acid?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Acne Face Wash! I've used many face washes over the years, but this is one of the few that actually gets results for me. I used up my first bottle of Gel Cleanser in January, and went back to using a previous face wash since I still had a bottle left. Halfway through that bottle I went out and bought myself another Purifying Gel Cleanser because I started to get breakouts again. I've used this face wash in both dry and humid climates and it's proved effective in both. I wash my face using the Gel Cleanser twice a day, after a shower in the morning and before going to bed at night. It provides the right amount of moisture and doesn't dry out my skin like other acne washes.
