Additional Information

Why is it different?
CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser isn’t like other acne cleansers; it is completely non-irritating and won’t cause dryness or flaking. This cleansing gel actually has a silky feel that works quickly to remove excess oil and debris that can clog pores and lead to breakouts.

What does it do?

How to use

Wet face and apply a small amount of cleanser to your face and eye area with vigorous, yet gentle, circular motions. Rinse well. To remove heavy makeup, repeat or use with a clean, wet washcloth.

    Comments about Clear Acne Cleanser - 177 ml:

    I've been using this for a week now, and within this week I've noticed an obvious increase in small pimples on my face, and redness and dryness after using this cleanser. I'm quite upset because I read so many good reviews. I have combination skin. I guess it doesn't work for everyone..

    Comments about Clear Acne Cleanser - 177 ml:

    I've used this cleanser for over two years and can't be without it. It is my HG product. My skin is always clean, fresh and makeup free after using it. I do notice a slight dryness/tightness after cleansing if I don't use a moisturiser so I find it works best for me when followed with rosehip oil and a hydrating moisturiser. I love this product and will continue to purchase again and again!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Speedy delivery and always comes as expected, in perfect condition.

      I was a little worried about this cleanser drying my face, as I get dry skin but also suffer from breakouts, this cleanser was great though, love the smell, cleans well, skin feels refreshed and it doesn't feel tight afterwards

          Comments about Clear Acne Cleanser - 177 ml:

          I started having regular breakouts of acne on my forehead and cheeks and this cleanser definitely helped to clear things up. I did find it a bit drying and now that I have the acne under control I have switched to a milder cleanser, but I did find this one helpful in the beginning.

          Burning sensation

          Comments about Clear Acne Cleanser - 177 ml:

          I recently purchased this and after using it for about 4 days I've started feeling a burning sensation. Face is also appearing more red because of this. I normally tend to cleanse tone exfoliate and moisturise but I can't even bare to touch my face with a toner as it instantly stings and goes red. Straight after washing - my face is instantly tight, tonight I have had to just moisturise after washing and even that is painful to apply. I can't use the product again as it is too painful and I am scared I will do some damage to my skin. I initially used the skin balancing oil reducing range but just didn't feel it was helping my blackheads enough but maybe have to go back to that and persevere longer as I'm now a bit wary to try anything else. The only good thing I felt using the above product was how clean my face felt after using. Disappointed as I have most of the bottle left.

            This is an average cleanser. Deep clean, no residue but made my skin very oily throughout the day. Not for me

              Comments about Clear Acne Cleanser - 177 ml:

              I've been using this product every morning and night. Initially I decided to give this a try because I was breaking out so much especially around my cheek and chin area. After using this for awhile my skin was a lot more clear. I would still get the occasional break outs but I'm no longer getting huge cystic pimples on my chin. However, my problem area is still my cheek and the side of my face. I have yet to find a solution for that.

              Like the claim, it did help with my acne prone skin! However, I did find it quite drying for my skin.

              Comments about Clear Acne Cleanser - 177 ml:

              I have acne-prone skin and was breaking out like mad before using this and so I started using this product day and night and after using it each time I really felt like my face was thoroughly cleansed and felt amazing. I saw definitive results after just 2 weeks. However, that also means that it's rather drying for my skin and I didn't feel that it removed dead skin cells so you definitely still have to use exfoliants time after time or just use their toner in the acne-treatment set that I use as well. All in all, I felt like I developed a dependence on this cleanser in a sense that if I didn't use it on a particular day I would feel like I didn't clean my skin well enough.

                Comments about Clear Acne Cleanser - 177 ml:

                I was tossing up whether or not I needed this cleanser along side the anti redness exfoliating solution and and benzoyl peroxide treatment. Cetaphil was my staple cleanser and I saw no need to change that product. I decided to buy the clear acne kit and after one use of this cleanser my skin looked and felt fantastic! It's a little too early to tell whether the other products in the clear line are working for me yet but this cleanser is definitely my new favourite. My skin felt beautifully clean without being dry and it had a lovely radiance to it and minimal redness. I'm very happy with this PC cleanser!
