This cleanser is great for acne prone skin. I have a history of dealing with acne for years. This is the only cleanser that combats breakouts and kills the bacteria. Your skin is left feeling very clean. Beware if you have very sensitive skin that it is a very aggressive cleanser. Also the main ingredient benzyl peroxide has bleaching properties. When washing you face do not wear a nice shirt or use a nice towel. All in all, great product to help breakouts.
