Medicated Cleanser is formulated in a soap-free, pH balanced, creamy base to dissolve and exfoliate pore-plugging debris, curb bacteria growth and control excess oil production.

Ain't Misbehavin' medicated AHA/BHA cleanser is formulated to clear blemishes and work synergistically with your daily acne control regimen. This soothing, non-foaming formula is ideal for anyone looking to reduce excess oiliness, mattify shine or simply refresh their complexion. Skin stops acting out and blemishes are rapidly brought under control. Continued use provides positive reinforcement - keeping skin clear, radiant and free of unsightly blemishes.

This soap free, oil free, pH balanced, buffered glycolic acid cleanser is enriched and enhanced by:

  • Highest level of salicylic acid (BHA), an approved treatment to unplug pores and treat acne.
  • Advanced polymer technology that soaks up excess surface oils yet won't leave skin parched.
  • Witch hazel, a time-honored astringent thought to target bacteria.
  • Allantoin, a botanical extract thought to have healing and anti-irritant properties.  Prevents the loss of the protective barrier otherwise stripped away by aggressive acne and oil-control treatments.

Appropriate for most skin types.

Just what the skin doctor ordered.®

I love using this cleanser, and I use it every night. I used it AM/PM when I first got it because I was so broken out, but it helped bring me to CLEAR SKIN so now I only use it at night because it makes me more sensitive to the sun. I am 28 and have struggled with everything from blackheads to severe cystic acne to adult acne and acne scars, and this product combined with a few others I use regularly (Origins Spot Remover and Borba Clarifying Complexion Shield , most notably) have brought me to clear skin with significantly diminished scarring. I did not love applying it to my dry skin as I always loved 'lathering up' but I love the results enough that I just got used to the application. It's expensive, but once you find what works for you it's cheaper than trying every single product that is sold which is what I have always done until using this face wash.

I didn't find this cleaner all that great. I also bought it based on the reviews, expecting an excellent product. I have moderate acne, nothing to severe for the most part. I'm also 20, so my acne is also considered 'adult ance'. The cleaner made my face feel clean, and was quick and easy to use. I used it according to the directions, and noted any progress. After 3 weeks, my skin was slightly better, but no major improvement. It's been about 7 weeks now, and I'm still using the product, but when this second bottle runs out I won't be purchasing again. There has been no major difference in my skin. It is slightly drier, but my boyfriend says it is softer. My acne is still the same as ever, and has only been slightly corrected.

Comments about DERMAdoctor Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser, 7 oz:

So this is the best face wash ever. I've suffered with adult acne for years...until now. Within a few weeks, my skin texture and tone greatly improved. I look and feel much better. A little goes a long way. Its a great investment. The bottle has lasted me for months now. I did have a compliant about the smell not being so great from my boyfriend. I haven't really noticed, but I'll take a slight odor over gross acne any day.

Comments about DERMAdoctor Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser, 7 oz:

I tried numerous other acne and non-acne formulated washes including many from the drugstore and some from catalog sales. This was recommended to me by a friend who also uses it and likes it.

Pros:
This stuff works for me. My skin is calmer, has fewer breakouts, and is generally more happy. Also, 7oz is a pretty huge bottle and is a competitive price based on size.

Cons:
It smells pretty terrible (like the famous acne treatment Sulfur Mask). However, the scent goes away as soon as it is rinsed off the face.

I highly recommend it, and have repurchased this product. I thought I would try something from the drugstore when my first bottle ran out and I was low on cash, but it wasn't the same. I think you'll be happy with this purchase.

    Comments about DERMAdoctor Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser, 7 oz:

    I have used this product for over 2 years and swear by it. It completely changed the texture of my skin. I used to suffer from bad acne and was just happy to dry up the breakouts. With this cleanser I found I could go above and beyond and have smooth oil-free skin. Follow the directions on the bottle. Morning and night for a minute I rub the product in circular motion onto dry skin. I think it makes it that much more effective. When I use a different cleanser for a few days I feel the difference. It may seem like a lot compare to drug store priced products, but a bottle last 6 months.

      I'm back to write another review.
      I actually follwed the instructions correctly and my face has been improving. DO NOT MIX WITH WATER!!! Apply this product on dry skin then mix with water when your rinsing.
      All of my pimples are drying up. I used to get them real bad on the side of my forehead and it's almost clear.
      Somebody asked me did I have makeup on today and I told them no. Basically my skin is improving very well.

        Comments about DERMAdoctor Ain't Misbehavin' Medicated AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser, 7 oz:

        I have been dealing with acne since I was 9 years old. It got really bad once I turned 13 and I have had moderate to severe acne on and off for 13 years now. I used to be on Retin-A (which is very harsh) but after a few months I had the most gorgeous skin ever! Once I joined the Army my acne came back worse then ever and with deployments and all I didn't have time to see a dermatologist unless I went on vacation. When I got to Germany ('08) my face cleared up after a trip to the dermatologist then due to stress it came back toward the end of 2009. So now I have decided to clear up my face at home instead of taking harmful antiobiotics and/or harsh products on my skin and also drinking lots of water & eating healthier (fruits & veggies + vitamins).
        I have been using this since April ('11) & it's like my skin was doing beautifully then it went into a mediocre state. For example, I still get annoying cystic pimples (either on my forehead or chin) that pop up and whiteheads on my nose, cheeks, and forehead. This product does work well with drying up the acne scars (also my skin feels smooth & clear) but then I get big, black dark spots all over my face. To be honest if I could make all the hyperpigmentation disappear instantly I would have pretty clear skin (except the annoying whiteheads - they are really little).
        Another thing I can say is that when I went to get a chemical peel done at the spa the other day, my aesthitician (did I spell that right?? *lol*) barely had to extract pimples. I thought that was a big improvement! So either this product is working slowly but surely, use of the clarisonic is improving, or vitamins and less stress. Maybe I'm just used to going to the dermatologist and having acne/hyperpigmentation free sking in 2-4 months. But the medicines are so harsh internally & externally so this route isn't so bad.
        I will keep you posted in a few weeks.

        I have been using the product for 3 weeks now. I will continue to use it, however, it has not cleared up my skin or prevented new breakouts, as it states. I use it religiously twice a day along with the black head treatment. Neither have improved my skin. I still get painful pimples and my skin remains bumpy. My pores have not decreased in size, either.

          I have been using this product for the last couple of days and so far have been pretty happy. Since relocating across the country my face has been difficult I have stubborn small bumps on my cheeks and chin. Not cysic but just really annoying and unflattering. So far this stuff has worked well and I can really see a difference and the bumps are slowly fading.

          I have tried tons of over the counter acne remedies. I am 35 and allergic to benzoyl peroxide. I decided to splurge on this and I am glad I did. I have only used it for 2 weeks, but it has made a huge difference in my skin. Definitely less breakouts and blackheads. My skin is usually very oily. Oil production is probably half now. I wouldn't use this if you have dry skin.

            Well, I follow the instructions on the label. I apply the creamy facial cleanser onto my skin, morning and night onto my dry face and rub in a circular motion. I do this for a while. The consistency is not thick but appliable; when you wash the cleanser off, your face feels clean.
            I've been using it for the past month and my skin's cleared up dramatically. My scars have lightened and my acne has subsided. With the help of other medication plus this facial cleanser, which is quite gentle, my face has gotten much more clearer, softer but also more oiler than usual. Especially on the t-zones and nose area.
