I was leaning toward the clarifying. They're $9.99 and I know I can get it cheaper online (although I haven't added up shipping or really shopped around), but I will be paying for instant gratification and for needing something NOW.

I'm really hoping the ACV helps as well. I can't believe I have so many pimples and I'm 37. Is this my bodies way of trying to make me feel young?!? Stupid PSF. I'm bitter, bitter I say!!!!

I think ACV is for PH balance, which shouldn't be an issue if your cleanser is PH-balanced, but it won't hurt either outside of smell, when you're putting it on.

Because I'm bitter, I'm trying to find a source for HA other than PSF. DY charges double the price! And I'm dubious of anything from GoW at this point.

I kinda enjoy smelling like salad dressing for a few minutes.

I'm still REALLY liking the clarifying cleanser. The cheapest price I've seen online is from luckyvitamin, 5.99. But iHerb turns out to be cheaper if you want to order 3 or more bottles. Each bottle is 6.97 but shipping is free for orders over 20.00. Luckyvitamin has a flat rate shipping fee of 5.95.

(this might make sense if you know I was out running errands and going several places and the grocery was the last stop before home)

I was SO mad at myself because even though I chanted a mantra to myself "Don't go to the wrong grocery, don't go to the wrong grocery", I did! I have two I shop at depending on what I need to get, so I get in the wrong one and start my shopping and realize "Crap, I went to the wrong store...." BUT!!! They had both cleansers for fifty cents cheaper!! So if I do end up liking it, it's good to know I can find it pretty easily. I got the clarifying and I'll start it tonight. Cross ya fingers!!!

Oh what's that, you can't give me a full ingredients list? Or better yet, all those things are in there along with SLS, or there's seemingly no actual cleansing agent. Forget getting a PH out of them!
Finally catching up with this thread. To the bolded, don't you know? Icelandic snow blows sideways so it's really really hard to catch!

Just thought I'd get an update and see how everyone is doing.

I'm still using the clarifying cleanser, but my face is a mess. It was ok for a while, but the last few weeks I just get more and more breakouts. Add to that I can't seem to find makeup that I'm happy with and I look like an oil slick about an hour after putting any on and I basically want to hide under the bed with the dog and not leave the house.

I am late to the party, as usual, and didn't realize the GCC had been discontinued until I tried to buy it a couple weeks ago. I tried the PSF Pineapple cleanser but it made my skin red and irritated.

I spent 40 minutes reading labels at Whole Foods tonight before buying Acure Facial Cleanser Gel but I'm scared to try it. . I have been using Pratima Skincare and I like it, but shipping is expensive and I can't use my Clarisonic with Pratima. It doesn't break me out or irritate my skin so maybe I'll stick with it, but I am very unhappy with PSF right now. I used GCC for four years with great results. Bummer!

Acure didn't work for me. Too drying and made me itchy. Back to Pratima and buh bye Clarisonic.
