This product is my daily cleanser. I have been using it for the past 8 months and it definitely lasts long. I have oily-normal skin. I've tried many brands and products including the effaclar gel cleanser, and I prefer this. I get the occasional breakout but my main concern is clogged pores. This product will take care of mild acne, and congested skin. It is slightly pricey but it lasts a very long time and is the only product that iv found works well for pores (other products are targeted at acne and help with acne but leave you with gaping pores which I dislike) so if that is what you are looking for in a product I would definitely recommend this as the best cleanser to target pores.

This has been my holy grail night cleanser for years. I went through a drastic change in skin texture from normal to oily skin to sahara-dry patchy skin (Thanks Chicago!) and this cleanser stuck with me even after that. Its gentle yet it cleans like a mofo. The price is a bit steep compared to other drugstore brands but you only need the tiniest amount to create sufficient lather for your whole face.

A creamy cleanser that is neutral on your skin. Not worth the price. This product is so mundane.

I could tell a difference the first time using this cleanser! It truly cleans your pores out then closes them up - perfect! It's a tad pricey, but I've had my tube for over a year and that's using it at least once a day, so it's definitely worth the money. It's pearly and creamy, very luxurious feeling. I don't think I will ever change cleansers.

The effeclar skin system just worked SO well for me. Thankfully I have gone from having awful cystic painful skin or something decent and much better looking, this has literally saved my skin both physically and textually. I'm so thankful for this being made easily available. Love it and I just hope my skin doesn't become immune to it eventually. I am in my mid twenties with oily, hormonal acne prone skin. I'm also have a dairy intolerance which effects my skin awfully. Face wash: Clear liquid that lathers nicely, leaves my skin feeing so clean and fresh. Love! Toner: Really feel it working, has reduced my enlarged pores dramatically, really helps and is such an important step. Cream: Great base for make up, stings slightly but that goes also show it's working! Makes my skin feel smoother and calms down angry red spots. All in all, I love the 3 step skin system. I always buy 3 of these when boots have the 3for2 offers on skincare which is every few months or so. Makes it great value for money as you pay £64 instead of £96.50 for 3 boxes which will last you approx 18/20 weeks. Before I finish I just want to say to anyone who is contemplating trying this, please do. I know the feeling of low confidence and hatred for ones own face when your skin looks bad. Try the product and I hope it works for you, if this doesn't then try something else, don't give up and do whatever you need to do to make yourself happy. Positive reinforcements help. I've been there, I know it's hard and sad. Always remember you are beautiful :)

I love this cleanser! I have acne-prone / oily-combo skin, so I like something that seems to "dry" that up a bit, without overdrying.

I also have the Effaclar Purifying Gel Cleanser....I prefer the lather of this Deep Cleansing Foam Cream version (which is similar in texture to another favorite cleanser, Origins "Checks and Balances"). As a plus, a little goes a long way for both the Effaclar Deep Cleansing Foaming Cream and the .

I'd recommend the cream version over the gel, but that's personal preference.

Finally a cleanser that lets my toner do its job, and not just remove more makeup! I've read the difference between what a foaming gel cleanser and something like the Emma Hardie moringa face balm can do, and since we just can't get the latter here, I have been searching for a decent substitute. Enter this hybrid. A pea sized amount makes a spreadable cream, and amount of foam is controlled with how much water you want to add, until rinsed off. This truly deep cleans and gone are the days of lingering pimple bacteria. I have combination skin and it honestly isn't stripped of moisture, even through these cooler temperatures happening now. When I get around to my toner the cotton pad is virtually clear of even waterproof makeup! I follow up with the Effeclar Duo, and my pores have never looked better. I am now on a french pharmacy kick thanks to this. The only downfall is the medicinal scent of the cleanser, which fades away after rinse.

In fall 2010 my skin went insane. Acne worse than I'd ever experienced. I had always dealt with acne and oily skin. Even as a 20-something my skin was essentially still reliving my early teens. Only NOW I was dealing with anti-aging concerns as well. Retinol was recommended as a cure-all for oil, acne and wrinkles. But as a result of a too high dosage of Retinol, stimulated oil production and using an aggressive acne cleansing gel I had developed painful, cystic bumps on my chin and jaw. No amount of prescription antibiotics or topical acne products worked to clean up the mess. It was suggested that I revamp my "face" ritual right from the basics. First up- NEW CLEANSER. La Roche- Posay has a brilliant reputation for being incredibly skin friendly, being formulated by and for dermatologists and their patients. I began using Effaclar Foaming Cream Cleanser after seeing a blog post praising the transforming powers of Effaclar K lotion, also by La Roche- Posay. I picked up the cream cleanser, Effaclar K lotion and hoped for the best. I saw a definite improvement with 3 days and by 2 weeks, my chin and jaw had completely cleared up. No flare-up's. The products even cleared up my blackheads which I had thought were just something I had to live with. I have since only used Effaclar K occasionally, but the Effaclar Foaming Cream Cleanser is a holy grail addition to my arsenal. My skin has remained under control and I have never experienced a further flare up. I attribute this to the outstanding Effaclar Foaming Cream Cleanser.

I'm very acne/clog-prone, somewhat sensitive combo skin. Now its february dead of winter and this cleanser is just too hars/drying for me. I wmight re-visit it again in the summer when I am more oily. If you are oily in the winter this would work for you in my opinion. The texture is great too, foams up into a rich creamy lather and rinses away clean, no residue. For now I am having luck with mario badescu enzyme cleanser in the morning and kate sommervile detox cleanser in the evening along with ddf brightening cleanser a few times a week for my hyperpigmentation and scarring.
