Where do I start?It's not offensive smelling like everything else from the Effaclar range it's clinical but regular. It is refreshing and very gentle so I end up slathering on more, foaming up more and if you use a regular amount you get a regular sensation, not too dry, but I'd end up a bit dry when I'd wash with all this vigour because I wasn't squeaky enough. The packaging is cute and the product comes out as transparent gel. It boasts all the goodness, soap free and good pH but I'm not sure how much it's cleaning my skin because I then went through an acne purge for several weeks so I don't think my skin likes it.I wouldn't buy it again. It may be good for some others however.

I like this cleanser. It makes my face feel great and clear.. It deep cleans which I like. I like. The fragrance but I'd prefer if it wasn't there.

This cleanser is mild and not too drying. It's not medicated, so don't expect it to clear acne by itself, but it is gentle enough to be used in conjuction with acne treatments. The good thing about it is that it cleans well, leaving no film (think cetaphil film) but it really isn't drying (less drying than the tolerian foaming cleanser, for comparison). This would be the best cleanser ever, in my opinion, if it didn't have a super strong scent. It's not unpleasant, but I hate putting fragrance on my face. If that doesn't bother you, I'd say go for it. It bothers me, so I am still searching for something like this with no scent. I have combination skin, mild hormonal breakouts, easily sensitized skin. I have used it with tretinoin in the past and it did not sting/overdry ( with tretinoin, however, using more than once a day may be drying for some). If you are looking for a one stop shop for acne this isn't it. I've used nuxe aroma-perfection, which is gel and medicated, with success (see review)

Okay so I really like the toner and the moisturiser (Duo+) from the effaclar line but this I can't particularly say I was a fan of. I mean it might not be horrible for some people but it didn't stop my breakouts at all. I had more the moment I stopped using my Trisan cleanser and started using this. The moment I discontinued use of this product and went back to my trusted Trisan my skin cleared up within a day. Definitely did not work for my skin at all and will not be repurchasing but that was just my experience. This could totally work for other people just not for me. It doesn't do all the much and it is quite expensive. Much better products out there for a whole lot cheaper. I was definitely expecting more out of this cleanser and was sadly disappointed at the result. Definitely check out the other products in this line though as they are fantastic!

The best face wash I have ever used. I've tried every cleanser from high end brands like kiehls paulas choice, first aid beauty, lush, clinique, kaya skin clinic to name a few to drugstore brands like clean and clear, burts bees, cetaphil, cerave etc but everything I used made my skin red irritated more prone to breakouts. This is the first face wash that has no drying effects on my skin. It also helps in reducing breakouts.

I've been using this for several months in conjunction with the clarifying toner. The overall effect: drying, and it doesn't prevent breakouts AT ALL. I really expected more from this brand.

I've always had combination, acne-prone skin and used proactive with limited results. I was so sick of not being able to get rid of the bumpy cystic type acne on my forehead and to a lesser extent the rest of my face. Finally, I threw out the proactive and took a chance on the effaclar gel cleanser, toner, duo and effaclar k products. Within days my skin was completely clear and the texture was smoother than I ever imagined it could be! This line really worked for me and I am a huge advocate of the line. I know how bad skin can impact your self-confidence and happiness and I am pleased to say the Effaclar products have changed my life for the better!

I love this cleanser (and brand) so much that I had to come on here and review it! I use the Effaclar 3 Step System (cleanser, toner, duo+) and this has really impressed me. I have mild acne, with breakouts usually on my forehead area and t zone but occasionally on the rest of my face and most products that claim to help acne actually break me out, I think that they contain too many chemicals or something. This, however, is totally suited for sensitive skin. My face is normal to combo- I sometimes get oily but not excessively, and this really feels like it cleans my skin. It probably won't get rid of acne by itself, but used in conjunction with other products- especially the effaclar duo+, I've now got a 90% blemish free face. The price isn't as cheap as some drugstore cleansers but I do think it's worth it. Also I prefer the pump packaging but that's also something I can overlook. Already repurchased this twice because I love it!

PROS:The bottle with the pump gives just enoughNice and foamyGood smellLarge bottleCompany is really wonderful about reimbursementsEasily available at my pharmacyCONS:Dried out my skin Didn't help with acnePrice is a bit highI just didn't find this did anything wonderful for my skin. It foamed up well, had a pleasant smell, and I do not believe it contributed to more breakouts. It did contribute to dry skin.

I quite liked this product at first but after using it for about two weeks, I noticed it started to dry my skin out. My face felt tight after using it and it didn't help keep my pores clear at all. On a positive note, it was great at removing my make up but for the price, I saw no real difference in the condition of my skin and it just felt like I was using something like Clearasil.
