    Instantly begins clearing skin
    I have struggled with adult acne for years but have finally found a solution with PCA BPO 5% Cleanser! I’ve been using this product once a day in the morning along with the acne gel and my skin has dramatically cleared. Breakouts have reduced & my skin is beginning to take on a more even tone.

    Best Daily Cleanser
    I was given a sample of this face wash years ago by my favorite esthetician and my skin was flawless. My bottle ran out and I stopped using this product. I struggle with acne prone skin and am constantly battling break outs. This past summer I had an awful break out and remembered how amazing my skin was with this cleanser so I repurchased it and have never been happier. My skin as been clearing up and stays clear thanks to the PCA acne line. This is my favorite cleanser. I sometimes shy away from products with benzoyl peroxide due to how drying it can be on my skin but this never makes my face feel dry. I use this morning and night, my face always feels clean and never dry.

    Only Cleanser I Will Ever Use
    I am a 42 yr old female that still was struggling with breakouts… if I didn’t wash my face for just one night I would get a breakout! I started using this product that I bought at my doctors office and it worked miracles. I can honestly say that I don’t have breakouts anymore. I still try to wash my face morning and night but I can actually skip a night and not worry about a breakout! I tried the product without the 5% and my breakouts came back. My face was dry at first but adjusted after a few weeks. I buy in bulk and a joke around my house is if this ever goes off the market I’m buying cases and cases to last me forever.

    MUST HAVE
    I’ve been using this face wash for a few weeks now. I have combination skin. It’s extremely dry AND extremely oily and this wash controls my oil without drying the rest of my face, and no acne! I’ve struggled up until now with acne; blackheads, cystic, red skin and scars… My skin has been perfect after using this, the total serum, and then the collagen moisturizer. I also use the clear skin moisturizer at night if I see a breakout coming on (it’s too greasy for the day time). The bottle go a LONG way. I seem use everything in excess but with this you literally only need the amount the size of a pea and you can wash your face and neck with such a clean feeling after so it’ll last you a while!

    Best Cleanser Ever!
    I have a mix between dry and oily skin and so, I often breakout however, after purchasing this cleanser I haven’t experienced a breakout in really long time!!! Because, I’m a college student I’m not always able to purchase the cleanser so, I tried to use a pharmacy store brand but, it didn’t do the job and left my skin way too dry… lesson learned I now save my pennies every month for this cleanser! Love it !!!!

    best cleanser
    huge believer in PCA product. used the facial wash for over a year but it just wsnt doing enough for me in terms of fighting off acne. was breaking out worse than ever and decided to give this cleanser a try. cant say enough good things about how much it helped clear up my skin. i still get the few breakouts but they are nowhere near as bad nor do they last as long. also brightened my skin tone but overall i love love love this cleanser. my skin is a little on the dryer side too and i didnt feel as tho this was too much for me. but i will never go a day without this stuff.

    Onset age rosacea acne resolved!
    I battled for 3-4 years going to Derm’s to control rosacea acne breakout on my checks. Paid tons of money for v-beam laser treatments and bumps and redness still there. It was just a shot in the dark as I needed cleanser and I liked the creams I used from massage envy. My rosacea redness and breakouts were gone in a week! I love this product.

    Ok cleanser
    I use this on my skin for acne and it’s an okay product. I think for the price it doesn’t work wonders. I do love the feel of it going on my skin but it seems to break me out when I use it instead of clearing me up. PCA does have AWESOME product but not this one. Also, I will add that it does not dry out the skin and that is a big plus.

    A staple in my regimen
    This is the only BP cleanser I have used (and I have used a lot of them) that doesn’t dry out my skin and cause extra irritation. I’ve been using it for almost 3 years, daily, in the morning and I don’t plan on switching. It’s maybe not the most efficacious when it comes to actually clearing acne, but I think it’s a good preventative.

    My favorite for hormonal acne!
    I love this cleanser! I have oily acne prone skin but recently my hormonal acne went from bad to worse and this cleanser saved my life! Was a little drying but I paired it with the hydrating toner and both of them have worked amazing. I was surprised at how quickly it worked, all the redness and inflammation went down within the first week. I experienced a few minor breakouts but nothing crazy. A must in my skincare routine

    No trade-off between quality and quantity – great cleanser!!
    I use this once in the morning and once when I shower at night. After a few days of use my breakouts started to dry up, and after about 10 days I could tell it was preventing breakouts. Dries my skin out less than drug store face washes, but I still use a moisturizer after. A little goes a long way so the price is worth it!

    Would not buy again – I had a reaction to it!
    I used this cleanser in the morning and at night. I was so excited to use it because of my awful hormonal acne, all around my chin. It was so painful and I hated looking at myself in the mirror. No amount of makeup covered it up. I switched from the creamy cleanser (which I felt did not give me as thorough of a clean as I needed) to this cleanser, in hopes that it would help with my breakouts. Unfortunately, it did the exact opposite. I had a reaction to it all over my forehead and around the sides of my face, onto my jawline and neck. It was SO itchy and I had small tiny red bumps all over. I was really bummed this didn’t work for me! It’s interesting that the reaction did not spread to my most troubled area (my chin). I stopped using it for a few days and the reaction has subdued. I’m going to try the blemish control bar next, as this BPO cleanser didn’t work for me at all.

    Love this cleanser
    My aesthetician recommended this product. I was hesitant at first being that I already had a cleanser I loved that worked well for my skin, but I am super glad I tried this product. I have extremely oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin. I have been using it now for about 3 years and I have been loving. I use it in the morning and at night and it leaves my skin feeling so fresh.

    Horrible breakouts
    I have horrible cystic acne around my jaw and chin, and I did a bunch of research on this product as well as others and decided to try this out. I used it for about 2 weeks as directed and I ended up waking up/ going through my days with 6-8 new cysts on EACH side of my face each day. I really wanted this stuff to work, but unfortunately it did not for me.

    Starting to see (or should I say feel) results!
    I have had cystic acne for about 3 months now and decided to try this out off a recommendation from an esthetician. I bumped up from using just in the mornings to using it twice a day and am starting to notice the cysts slowly shrinking. My cystic acne is not visible at least on the surface, but I occasionally had biggg cysts that you could physically see but not anymore since using this wash. Hopefully with enough consistency this wash will help knock them completely out. I totally recommend giving this a try if you’re suffering from cystic acne as well.

    Great for Acne
    Took a risk on ordering this cleanser, as BP products typically dry me out and irritate my skin. This cleanser has a slightly creamy quality to it that feels silky. I usually cleanse my face with the facial wash, then apply this product and let it sit for 1-2 minutes before washing off. It has definitely helped clear some of my acne & has softened the blackheads so that they are more easily extracted. This is a new staple for me.
