I love this cleanser. I am oily and this cleanser seems to really deep clean. My skin is not tight after using, a big bonus. I love the smell too. I don't love the price and I wish it had a flip cap, but other than that, still love

Update: been using this for over a week and it no longer dries out my skin. My face is more balanced after using.

I have always been impressed with MK skincare, so I picked this up for 50% off. I have combo skin, which is on the oily side in Summer and dry side in Winter. I like MK cleansers because they remove all my eye makeup. While this cleanser removed most, it did not remove all my mascara like the Timewise. I only needed a tiny bit and it foamed up nicely. It did remove all my makeup after one cleansing. My skin did feel a bit dry right after, but in a few minutes the dryness went away. I can see if you have dry skin, that this might not be the best cleanser for you. I have used this 3 weeks and continue to like it and see brighter skin. I will repurchase and update results since I purchased the entire Volu-Firm line.

I've tried this several times so far and there is good and bad for me with this cleanser:

Pros: Foaming if you like that, I do. Not particularly drying per se but more drying than Timewise for normal/dry. A little goes a long way which helps offset the price. Does seem to brighten the complexion and tighten pores. Removes makeup fairly well, although I did use it twice when I used it all by itself to make sure everything was off. I tested with a toner and all but makeup by the hairline was gone.

Cons: Does contains fragrance with ethylene brassylate which I hate--don't know why--but every time companies put this in it makes me cringe and my skin seems to react. In addition, they put this in a tube with a screw off lid, which makes the packaging awkward. They should have stuck to the flip-top lid especially for something where your hands will be wet.

I said no to buying it again because right now I am not using this on a regular basis but maybe as summer is in full swing I will turn to this more. My skin is a little too dry to use this as my one and only cleanser. I could see folks with combination skin liking this more.
