Back when I loved foaming cleansers, this may have been HG material - it's so creamy and cleanses so well. However, it leaves my combination skin feeling much too dry - I guess I've gotten accustomed to my Mario Badescu gel cleansers. EDIT: After several more uses, I find I really love this. I feel so clean! And the dryness can be contributed to my 28-yr old, pregnant hormones; I'm never one to feel "dry," as I've been both blessed/cursed with oilier skin. For $48CDN, it seems like such an expensive luxury, but half a dime-size per use is more than sufficient. Foreseeing this to last me an entire year wouldn't be stretching it. Love, love, love - another skincare winner from a fabulous Japanese line.
