This scrub contains salicylic acid as the active ingredient. However, unless you’re willing to leave this on your skin for several minutes (which is absolutely not recommended), the exfoliating benefit of the salicylic acid will be rinsed down the drain. The synthetic scrub ingredient polyethylene allows for manual exfoliation, which is okay, but be careful using this over acne lesions because you can’t scrub acne away.
Different from other scrubs, the Daily Facial Scrub has a mix of multi-sized microbeads and is gentle enough for everyday use. This formula deep cleans and gently exfoliates to clear skin and help prevent breakouts.

Perhaps no other line is more synonymous with decades of zapping zits than ever-present Clearasil. The brand debuted in 1950 and was the first to offer anti-acne products to a teenage audience. The company has had several owners over the years (including Procter & Gamble), but has always kept its place on store shelves. The current selection of products is larger than in years past, yet they remain overwhelmingly disappointing because most of them contain irritating ingredients that don't help blemish- or blackhead-prone skin. Alcohol, menthol and its derivatives, and witch hazel show up repeatedly in these and other anti-acne products at the drugstore, creating a precarious situation that leaves shoppers who are dealing with acne faced with few genuinely effective choices. Luckily Clearasil comes through a few times with some very good benzoyl peroxide products for effective disinfecting, a very good BHA option, and a few other gems.
By the way, although Clearasil has products directed toward adult (instead of teenage) acne, the basic cause and treatment of acne is the same regardless of age. The protocol for handling breakouts does not require a separate category of products; the treatment basics remain the same.
