Recommended by my dermatologist, and I actually purchased it there. So mild and gentle, gets rid of everything and doesn't make my skin feel stripped. I have oily/combo and acne prone skin. Easily accessible at CVS, where it goes on sale from time to time.

I had been suffering for hormonal breakout this past few months and I never had acne/breakouts ever since. I had been with Clinique for years now and it didd't help control my breakout. Then I came across to La-Roche Posay and I decided to give it a try. I had been using it for a week now and my breakouts was almost 90% gone. All I have left now are scars. I will continue this product until my hormones are back to normal. I'm also hoping that this will continue to work with my skin. It's gentle to your skin and you will feel that after using it your face is soft. Overall I really like this product.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Other, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
I am in my early 40s and when I was in my teens and early 20s had terrible acne. As I got older, my skin improved but even now I've always had to put up with 1-2 spots on my face, usually on my chin line. I've tried loads of cleansers in all price ranges and never found one that I really loved until now. Since I've started using this product, I've had no breakouts. None. I tone my skin afterwards with Simple toner and use Clarins amazing Blue Orchid face oil and my skin has never looked better. It costs about €15 and is worth every cent.

I am very selective about my skincare so I only buy products that claim to be super gentle, suitable for sensitive skin I even look into baby skincare. As la roche-posay is dedicated entirely to sensitive skin they got a lot of my attention lately and now I have three other products from them beside this cleanser and plan to try a lot more.
This cleanser is said to be gentle and it feels so. It makes a soft, not very abundant lather it also does not irritate my eyes at all (baby no-tears shampoos are more irritating than this) so I use it as a makeup remover for my eyes too with no concern. It also does not dry me out at all. I already repurchased it to have at hand then I run out.

I've just used up this cleanser, and it was okay.
It just didn't do anything for me skin. Also it's a little to drying for my combinated-dry-sensitive skin. A few weeks after starting using, my skin broke out really badly. If it was because of this cleanser, i don't now but it could've been.
However it makes your skin feeling clean and it removes makeup ok, but I will sugest still using makeup remover before using.
- I would not repurchase, but give a try! Maybe it would work for you? I know a lot of people love it, so maybe it's just my skin that's weird...?

I'm struggling with perimenopausal breakouts and having been using this gel for about 6 months. Its a decent cleanser and I haven't any reactions to it.
Word of a advice though, I find that I need to wash my face with water a lot after using this as it leaves a residual soap/gel on the skin even when I use a hot cloth. So anyone who suffers from dry skin should be aware that if you don't rinse your face thoroughly it may end up drying your skin out

This is surprisingly good, maybe just above average, not heart stopping, but does the job (too many commas yes I know! haha). It's gentle, effective at removing my face of the day and doesn't leave my skin feeling tight afterwards. It didn't break me out or leave me feeling overly dry or overly oily, I think it's a good drugstore option if you're open to trying something new.

Unfortunately this wasn't for me. Used it for about a week and developed very deep painful breakouts on my temples and eyebrows, so maybe I'm allergic to one of the ingredients? Lathers well and has no noticeable scent. I think it would be a great gentle cleanser for someone who's skin isn't as sensitive as mine.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
I have gone through 4 bottles of this stuff and I can properly say that I love it! It lathers really well and gives me skin a really clean feeling. I highly recommend if you have oily/acne prone skin.

La Roche Posay, I love you! I have started using the Effaclar Duo two weeks ago and my skin is amazing. Then last week I thought, "I should start using the Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel!!" I absolutely love it. I bought it at my local Target. 6.76 Fl Oz for $22.99! My face looks and feels amazing. I also use Tarte's Maracuja Oil on my face at night after the LRP products and for the day time I use different moisturizers. I would definitely say use a great moisturizer with these products as the ingredients could be very drying. However the cleanser has a PH of 5.5 which is great for your skin! Totally worth the price point and this bottle is going to last a long time!
