I may be alone in my review of this product because I've heard nothing but good things from other people and other reviews but I personally could not give a good rating. I bought this more as a preventative because I don't really have acne, just an occasional breakout. From the very first time I used to cleanser it burned my skin horribly and would leave my face literally as red as a tomato for hours! I wrote to the company and according to them it doesn't sound typical (not that I actually expected them to tell me it did) but my feelings were that I'd expect an acne cleanser to be a bit more gentle than this appears to me. It's a three step system and I can use the other two steps just fine (step#2-moisturizer, step#3-spot control) but step #1 makes me look like I fell asleep on the beach from sun up til sun down. To be fair I have very sensitive skin, so perhaps the product isn't meant for people with sensitivities...but at the same time I would figure that people with acne need a certain measure of sensitivity as well.
