In brief: Better options exist

When you have acne, you do not want to dry out your face, as it leads to compensatory oil production.
Gentle cleansing is best. A foaming or gel cleanser with therapeutic amounts of compounds like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid or beta hydroxy acid. Stay away from scrubs or buff pads.. For thorough cleansing, use your cleanser with the clarisonic skin care brush.
