This is a horrible cleanser. I would not recommend this to anyone. i have combination-oily/ acne prone skin and this cleanser made me breakout. this cleanser feels very heavy and greasy on the skin, it doesnt feel like its cleaning at all. it also contains harsh chemicals like menthol and fragrances which just irritate the skin.
I've been using this face wash for about a year or so now and I just can't seem to stop. It's not any different from any other face wash, but it has that feeling of clean after you dry your face. I know some face washes tend to dry your face out afterwards, but I don't have a problem with this one. It hasn't broken me out which I like and it seems to get the job done. I must say, I don't break out very often but this keeps breakouts at bay when I do.
This stuff did NOTHING for my skin that normally responds well to salycilic acid.
So, this was one of my first salicylic acid cleansers ever. At the time, I was impressed with the results of the cleanser on my hormonal acne. It had a drying effect and cleared up my face right away. I was so delighted that I repurchased this product about three times. And that is when it stopped working on me altogether.
I know that it is recommended that you switch your acne-products on-and-off. That is what I did for a couple months before returning to this cleanser once again. Unfortunately, it stopped working permanently. So, I have never repurchased since.
Overall, I do think that this product works as a cleanser. For those acne prone, I think that the effects of the cleanser are noticeable but minor. When compared to other products on the market, I would not repurchase.
I love cream cleansers. This one feels so buttery smooth on my skin and my skin feels clean and hydrated afterwards. I leave it on for a minute or two. It seems to really work. I like it. It has a nice cucumber smell and my skin in conjunction with the rapid acne lotion both seem to be helping turn my skin around. The only thing I don't like about it is that it contains menthol. The only thing menthol is good for is a "cooling" sensation. If it wasn't in the product it would be perfect.
I have been using this cleanser off and on since I was about 14 years old. As I got more and more into beauty products I went for the higher end cleansers for a while but decided to pick this up again. I kept it in my bathroom cupboard for months and finally put it in the shower so I could wash my face in the shower before bed (I shower at night). One night I forgot to wipe my makeup off and used this cleanser on my face and eyes - when I got out of the shower my eye makeup was completely washed away with no mascara or eyeliner residue running down my face. I further inspected with a cleansing wipe and even my best foundation was gone from my face! So this stuff removes makeup like a makeup remover and keeps my face clean, and clear of pimples. I have oily acne prone skin but its nowhere near severe and I seem to have grown out of it for the most part. I still have my regular that-time-of-the-month breakouts but to me that's inevitable. Like any product, you have to give it time before you can see results. This is super cheap and a little goes a long way so it lasts a long time. Give it a try! :)
I have acne prone, oily skin, and was very happy with this cleanser :)
My thoughts about this are that you really don't need a lot to really clean your face, a dime sized amount spreads evenly all over your face and does the job. Using a dime sized amount and using it every night, lasted me about 4 months!
When you wash it it stays like a cream cleanser and after putting it on your face if you wet your hands and then keep on cleansing it turns into a still creamy but kind of milky cleanser. After washing my face with it my face does not feel dried out and it feels clean, refreshed, and supple.
I really liked this cleanser however don't expect it to get extreme results with your acne, After about washing for a week with it my acne got smaller and some pimples got more dried out so they would go away, but nothing too extreme. This is a gentle cleanser that helped prevent some breakouts for me but it didn't really get rid of pimples or make them stop completely. This did control my skin being less oily though!
Overall, This cleanser helps a little bit with my acne, but mostly made my skin feel good. Less oily and refreshed and clean and the feel and texture of my skin felt better :)
I would buy this again and recomend this for people who have oily and combination skin who want something gentle but a good cleanser :)
It took a long time until I could effectively see the results of this product on my face. I have mild to moderate acne and this is just not effective at treating my break outs. It does not suds up a lot, which I don't like and it does not get rid of all of the oil on my face. And this stings if you get it in your eyes so don't try to get eye make up off w/ this!
I got this one day when I went to Walgreens to get my normal Deep Clean Cream Cleanser by Neutrogena, but they were out so I picked this stuff up instead. It didn't help my acne at all, actually made it worse and dried out my skin horribly. Also has a strange unpleasant smell to it that I don't like near my face. Wouldn't repurchase ever.
I use this product, because i got too many white and blackheads, and really need a cleanser that day, so, I purchase this Oil-Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser, and I never have acne, my breakups are like a tiny little dots , but this cream , fill me up with lots of that , all over my cheek area, my nose, my front head, from one day to other, never inflammation,or pain, just appear ready to pop, the little tiny breakups yellow, color, so, that make me scare , my husband say , that the cream, was pushing all impurity of my face, but, i not sure about that.
