Reviews For ACNEdote Deep Pore Face Wash

Based on 30 Reviews

Will never disappoint

This is the good stuff. My face always clears up whenever I use this. I also use this for cleaning my make up brushes and beauty blender! The only thing I find odd is that it smells a little different than the ones I get from Walmart, target, etc. it's also not cheaper than getting it elsewhere. Overall, great product.

- Angela

Liquid consistency

Love it feels awesome. Be careful you don't lose any as its liquid.

- Camila Suarez


This is the product I've been looking for!! I suffer from acne, and waxy/oily skin. So when I got this product, I realized I could use it for my nightly and daily routine. This product plays a big part on my face helping me fight my hormonal acne. It prevents major break-out, all though I still have little bumps on certain areas that I've never been able to cure. This product left my face tingly and refreshed, definitely a necessity in my life. I HIGHLY recommend this product to ance prone skin, its the GO TO product of the century, Affordable & reliable.

- Taijah

Love this!

This is an amazing cleanser. It tingles and refreshes your skin, and noticeably decreases acne. I used to spend $40 on the Clinique Acne set, and have now completely switched to this + Thayer's rose water witch hazel + African Black Soap moisturizer--about half the price for more product and better looking skin.

- Kelli

Cleans without drying

My face hasn't looked better since starting to use this product (along with witch hazel and coconut oil).

- Caitlin


Cleanses well with a minty / refreshing feel. Will buy again.

- Sarah

Deep Pore Face Wash

This product is fantastic! It does what it claims to do, and is a deep cleansing wash. It has a slightly tingly feeling and a wonderful mint smell, and leaves my skin feeling very clean and soft! I have replaced my previous face wash with this, and the whole family is now using it.

- Heather

The Best!

I have only used this three times and my face is so refreshed! I love the smell and the feeling when I am finished. My face is not dry at all!

- Krista

feels refreshing

i liked it because you feel a fresh face when u put it on.

- veronica

Works great

My son uses this daily and it helps control the oil and breakouts. Doesn't completely keep breakouts from happening.

- Dana

Has totally changed my skin (and my self-esteem!)

I used to try "natural, DIY" skin washes for my acne (which I have had for about five years since 18)... ACV, baking soda, honey, clay masks, turmeric... Nothing worked. My acne was moderate to borderline severe on my cheeks and jawline. I bought this cleanser about two months ago. Almost two weeks into it, I could truly see my acne disappearing! Now, I have barely any acne flareups. It is redness and scarring that is healing. It is strong but hasn't been too harsh on my sensitive skin... I did buy a second bottle, which I diluted with some water. I use the full strength at night and diluted during the morning. It seems to help with some dryness. DO NOT GET INTO EYES or EYE AREA, though!

- Kristin

Awesome For Acne prone skin

I actually have combination skin that is acne prone. I love this wash, it doesn't dry or irritate my face and leaves a wonderful refreshing feeling. I pair it with dessert essence tea tree skin balm and use that as a moisturizer after washing my face. My face has cleared up after using for -a month.

- Chynna Camarillo

smells amazing, leaves skin feeling refreshed

Love the smell of this and while refreshing it doesn't feel too harsh on my face.

- Emma-Lee

- Rikki

Wow :-)

It was and is the best for my super sensitive skin, I applied Shea Butter on for my moisturizer and the 2 are awesome, my skin is smooth and fresh!

- Ashley

Deep cleaning just like it says!

This product is fantastic! It does what it claims to do, and is a deep cleansing wash. It has a slightly tingly feeling and a wonderful mint smell, and leaves my skin feeling very clean and soft! I have oily, acne prone skin, and so far this product has really helped balance out my skin!

- Karlee

Love it

I love the way it feels on my skin. It feels different then other facial cleaners. It does clean your face .

- Alba

No, just no :(

I had really high hopes for this face wash. My skin recently stopped responding to my previous face wash and I started breaking out (at almost 30 years old!). It's important to me to find a natural way to wash my face & fight acne. I was really excited to switch to this after reading good praise for this product. However on my second day using this wash, my face broke out into hives around my mouth, chin & lips. I googled the reaction & it turns out there are others who have had the same reaction. I'm super disappointed!

- Heather

Love it!

I love how this makes my face feel! It feels tingly and refreshing. Really leaves a clean feel. I think I found my new face wash. :)

- Christina

A Miracle Worker

I've always had awful acne and I've been waiting my whole life for this stuff. I wanted to wait to review because usually my skin usually gets used to products, but I'm 3 weeks in and my skin is clearer than it has been in at least a year. It works against my acne all day. I highly recommend it!

- Annie

Super refreshing and works great!

I've struggled with acne on my life and I haven't been able to find a product that doesn't make my breakouts worse but also makes me feel like my face is really clean. This wash has not only cleared up my face after 3 days of use, but I haven't had any break out since I started using it 2 weeks ago. I usually leave it on my face for a couple minutes then my pores can soak it up before I rinse it off, it does not leave my skin overly dry it actually feels smooth to touch which is totally unusual for me and I love it! I was hesitant to order this without smelling or feeling at first but it's got a tea tree or menthol-ish smile so it leaves your skin feeling tingling and super clean!

- Crystal

Dirt Be Gone!

I can't recommend this pore cleaner from ACNEdote enough! It really works! I love that it is Paraben free, Vegan, Organic, Made in the USA, and is Cruelty free. I LOVE a product that works well while being backed by a good company.

- Larissa Selzer

My Dermatologist Recommended This!

I've suffered from acne for many years, way into my twenties. I hate it. When I finally saw a dermatologist, she recommended ACNEdote Deep Pore Cleaner. She said it was tough, but gentle on my face and back where most of my acne occurs. She also told me a little secret. After washing with this pore cleaner, gently move an ice cube over the area to seal to pores closed and the dirt out.

- Adam Baldwin


I have struggled with acne a lot since having my daughter. This has started to clear up my face and I've only bee using it for two days! Love love love!

- Mikayla

Deep Pore Wash

I love this product! I have adult acne and although I still get some acne, I feel that this has helped more than any other product that I have used.

- Teena

Best so far

I ordered this for a friend's son who was very self-conscious of his skin and acne problems. Within a week his skin was noticeably clearer. He is so relieved to have found something that not only works, but is more natural than other products locally available to us.

- Kristi

Great Cleanser

Found out that my favorite facial cleanser was tested on animals. That's so horrible! After a friend's recommendation, I switched to this. It's done a great job of keeping my skin free of acne! It has a nice lather when applied, and it's actually done a better job of clearing up my skin than my last cleanser did. My last cleanser seemed to keep my skin relatively dry, and I had to follow it up with a facial lotion. Alba doesn't seem to do that, and I rarely find myself needing to apply my old facial lotion anymore.

- Kelly P.

Great in the morning and at night

This facial wash is gentle, natural and penetrates deep.

I can feel it opening my pores at night, and my face feels so much smoother and cleaner after each use. It's a good price compared to the stuff they sell on infomercials, especially at an almost forty percent savings here on Thrive.

- Alexandria

Removed problem skin areas

I've wrestled with acne for years, done the Proactiv thing, didn't really work without the acne coming back.

My dermatologist told me to buy this wash, said it was all natural. Well, it's a great face wash that goes on smooth and leaves my face feeling freshly scrubbed.

It's fading my acne every week, and I can see the rest of my skin is glowing now, and I'm a guy saying that! For a great price, Thrive is helping me have confidence that I can have great skin after years of trying.

- Amos Bates

Great acne wash!

I really like this product! It has good ingredients, smells good and cleans well. Good value. I really have been happy with alba products.
