Great daily cleanser. Even removes my long wearing foundation.

I have been using this for years now and it's the only cleanser that balances my skin. This product doesn't leave my skin oily or too dry. Love it!

I'm using Clearskin combined w/ the Blemish Bar (at night) and Oily/Problem Skin Was (in the morning) and have seen fantastic results in just 3 days. I am a 33 y/o woman w/ adult hormonal acne. I've been on an antibiotic for almost 6 months but was still getting cysts on my neck and chin. Tried Proactive & Dermalogica and my skin got worse... got my Clearskin and Blemish Bar Friday and Monday the cysts shrunk (usually takes a month or so) and no new cysts! The oil is also pretty manageable now too... I'm hoping that gets better. :D My skin is smooth and soft and well hydrated.

As you can see, I reviewed this set of products on 3/11/10. It's now been 5 months and I'm still using it, although I use the PCA line ONLY at night. During the day, I get into the shower and wash with La Roche Posay Effaclar Gel and then tone with their toner and then follow with their mattifing moisturizer. I have VERY oily skin despite being 40 years old and La Roche Posay's mattifying moisturizer is great stuff for making your makeup cling well even on oily skin. I could have tried to use PCA during the day but as oily as I get, I was worried about my makeup's ability to cling to my skin with only the Clearskin as a moisturizer. At night, I use the PCA line. I wash with (pHaze 1) Facial Wash for Oily/Problem Skin, follow with smoothing toner (pHaze2), and clearskin (pHaze18). I use the pHaze 13 pigment gel and the A&C serum (pHaze 23) every OTHER night before I put on the clearskin. I was unable to use it every night without peeling and redness. I also exfoliate/mask using pHaze 9 once a week and use pHaze 4 exfoliator once a week. For those who've noticed redness and peeling using the pigment gel every night, I'd recommend kicking back to every OTHER night. I can't remember the last time I had a real zit. The dark areas on my forehead from taking birth control for 20 years and being exposed to sunlight have ligtened and the years of sun damage to my cheeks has greatly diminished. This is great stuff and I'm glad I switched.

I'd been using the same skincare line for over 15 years and started having whiteheads on my chin each and every morning despite never having had them before. I'd been given samples of PCA by a local esthetician's office and decided to dive in and make the switch. The week of Feb 14th, 2010 I began using this cleanser, the smoothing toner(pHaze2), and clearskin (pHaze18). I added in the serums and gentle exfoliant 2 weeks later. It's now March 11th and my face has practically been resurfaced. My skin tone is even throughout, and while it does appear that my forehead is going through some light peeling (my chin did this about 2 weeks ago), I've not had a single blemish and wake up in the mornings without oil all over my face. The whiteheads have completely gone, there are ZERO blackheads anywhere on my nose and chin as well. This line is quite a bit pricier than what I was using but it has delivered 100%. It is all that it claims and has worked wonders on my oily/problem skin!

Although I love the PCA chemical peels, their daily care products do not impress me. This cleanser made my skin feel stripped of moisture, which I would not expect from a professional grade cleanser. It also contains sodium laureth sulfate, a common irritant in cleansers that can strip the skin's natural moisture. As for the smoothing toner, it too is also irritating. The first time I used it it burned my skin. The second time it wasn't so bad, but I still felt a tingle which continued on for about an hour after I finished the rest of my routine. I would definitely not recommend these two products to my clients, especially those with sensitive skin. I would only recommend them prior to or after a chemical peel.

I am a former 3 year Proactiv user. tried this face wash in the acne starter kit and i am convinced it is all that it claims. My skin is no longer oily and in need of blotting throughout the day and it looks better than it has in years. I use it in combo with clearskin, 20% Vit C & E lotion and the Hydrating spf 25 lotion. My skin has never felt better

I have been using this cleanser and other PCA products for 2 years now and absolutely LOVE them! I have struggled with acne for years and this is the only product that seems to work for me. I have smooth, clear skin now!

I love this cleanser. My skin started breaking out, out of nowhere, and this cleared it right up without drying--FYI I don't have oily skin and this doesn't cause any issues for me. Also, my forehead has always had small bumps under the skin and they've cleared right up. I'm impressed by the quantity and the price. Will continue to use!

My 15 year old daughter had tiny pimples in her forehead and ocassional breakouts. Since she is using this face wash her skin is beautiful, no more tiny pimples, just natural beautiful smooth skin.
