Kind of like washing your face with jizz but what can I say this is great stuff
I have acne prone skin and was recommended to use this cleanser by my dermatologist. It is a great cleanser really feels like it is removing the impurities on my skin. I have to say though, it definitely does not remove all of my makeup of my face, hence I tend to use makeup wipes then use another face wash and then use cetaphil to really clean my skin once everything as been removed.
This product is dermatologically recommended for a reason, probably one of the only products on the market we should actually be using on our faces!
I got this item from the derm. I have ultra oily skin, acne prone, sensitive, you name it. This item did not help me at all. It seem pretty diluted :/ After washing my face with this, few hours later, there's will be a thin layer of what seem like sticky substance on the surface of the face.
I went back to the derm, and she give me no explanation about this sticky thing. Using antibiotic, cream and washing the face with this for 6 months. No improvement at all, i gave up on this looking at hefty sum i spend on derm. Felt cheated. Really.
I have oily acne-prone skin, and this cleanser is gentle enough that it leaves my skin clean, but doesn't strip off the top protective layer and cause me to break out. Sometimes I have to wash twice, because it is very gentle, but I can't go without this now.
I've been using this product on and off for the last 13 years and this is the best cleanser for sensitive skin. However, I also have oily and acne-prone skin so this does not help in those areas but it does not make it worse.
I use this in the morning for a gentle, non-abrasive cleanse, non-reactive cleanse just to get rid of any oil and dust that settled on my skin at night. I use this on it's own and rinse with water after. I also find that this is good for prepping the skin before makeup as there is a light film of moisture on my skin.
Overall, you can't really go wrong with this product. I do have to say that this works better than the formula for oily skin. That one actually leaves my skin a bit bumpy.
My daily cleanser.
It's so gentle I can't believe how good it works. I use it after I remove makeup and then go to sleep feeling great.
I'd recommend this for:
Body and face
Really good at doing what it claims. Doesn't give you as clean of a feel as other products but hey, it's strikes a good balance between gentleness and efficacy.
Good value for money too.
One lippie off for poor texture.
Whenever my skin is going through a horrible time and I can't use my usual cleansers and face scrubs, I use this. This cleanser will not dry out your face, or leave it oily. It has a light scent to it, and a runny liquid-y texture. It will clean off any residue you have on your skin without stripping the natural oils or irritating your face. If you have very sensitive skin or your skin is very very dry and you can't use your normal cleansers - give this one a try. I always have the big size of it with the pump under my skink for when I need it!!
Although this cleanser seems to be mild enough for sensitive skin, i feel as though it didn't take all of my makeup off. Although it left my skin feeling soft, I didn't like greasy texture, I prefer a cleanser to make my skill feel clean.
This is absolutely my HG facial cleanser. I have incredibly sensitive (break out with ANYTHING), combination/oily, acne-prone skin. I've tried basically every out there from Proactiv to higher end cleansers like Shu Uemura or Lancome. I have to say for us acne-prone girls, this i ABSOLUTELY the best product out there. It's super gentle, cleans very well, and leaves my skin feeling fresh and soft. Highly recommend it if you're looking for a good cleanser that is mild for everyone.
