Q: I also use a face wash with 1% salicylic acid. Is it safe to combine these 2 products or will it dry out my skin?

submitted by Amy - 1 year ago
  • A: Hey Amy, It is safe to combine the Clean & Clear Essentials Dual Action Facial Moisturizer with a 1% Salicylic acid. Depending on your skin type, you may experience drier skin. If you do, I recommend not using more than one salicylic acid product in your skincare routine.

Bring back the old formula! I have been using this lotion for probably 20 years? They just changed it and I was optimistic, but I threw away the bottle within a few days. Horribly dried out my skin. I lucked out and found three of the old bottles on the shelf at a grocery store and bought them all. So I have a little longer until I need to find a new lotion!

I have use the old clean and clear, dual action moisturizer for years, so far back I can’t remember how long . I bought this since you discontinued the old version of dual action moisturizer. I do not like this one. It leaves my face with a greasy feeling, the other moisturizer was much cleaner, feeling and lighter.

I tried this because my aging skin was becoming dry plus I was still getting breakouts. It goes on nicely and really helps moisturize my skin. It smells ok, as expected and the pump is easy to use.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This pore defining moisturizer leaves your skin very soft. You can feel it slightly as it’s tightening. It did not give me a burning sensation and I have very sensitive skin! Another pro was that the definer didn’t have a bad smell.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This moisturizer is very good on my skin. It has salicylic acid which helps to smooth skin and prevent any dead skin buildup of black heads. I've noticed an improvement to my skin. On first use, it was a bit drying, so i would recommend to mix this with a regular moisturizer at night.

I’m 39 years old and I have been using this product for close to 30 years. Why did you have to change it? Sure it is basically the same product but the bottle. I want my pump lid back. I have never had acne and I say it’s because I have used this lotion for most of my life. With the pump. Give me the pump bottle back.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was actually semi disappointed in this product. I have severe acne (more than I did as a teen, I’m 33 now). While the moisturizer is light weight, dries fast, and feels very lovely on the skin… I rated it lower only because It did not help my acne ONE bit. Other than that, I loved everything else about It

Thumbs Down - New Formula

mamamerd - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
I have used this moisturizer for years. From teens well into my adults years. I find the recent change is formula to be more drying and ineffective. This used to help keep my skin hydrated and combatting breakouts, but now it seems to do neither. BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULA!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This moisturizer has been part of my daily routine now, there is not a day that I go without it. I suffer from super dry skin and I apply it at the morning and at night before going to sleep, what I love about it is: - It last almost the whole day - It leaves my skin feeling nourished - It does not have any fragrance and I think that is even better for a facial moisturizer - I 've seen that the dryness of my face has improve a lot since I am going through winter season, it has been really helpful. Definitively I will purchase it again and I will 100% recommend this product.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love that this product is two in one. It moisturizes skin and hydrated my skin without being greasy while also clearing up acne and preventing breakouts. A little bit of product goes a long way. It’s light weight and my skin doesn’t feel heavy with this on. I would recommend this to anyone who struggles with acne.
