Prior to using this cleanser, I was using a Clinique cleansing set with toner and moisturizer. The set did wonders for my skin! It not only cleared away the oil, acne and normalized the level of oil on my face, but it gave my skin an overall even tone. When I ran out of the Clinique goods, I checked out my Ulta and they unfortunately do not sell Clinique products, so I scoured the internet for a similar high quality product that Ulta does sell for my normal-to-combination skin. I decided to give the La Roche Posay Toleriane foaming cleanser a try, and after the first use, my skin had relapsed to its uber-oily state and breakouts were playing happily along the sides of my face, under my nose, and along my chin. Great.
While I could wait a month to see what would happen, why let my skin suffer after Clinique's recovery? No, my friend. I am heading back to Ulta today, returning the Toleriane cleanser and hopping online to purchase my tried-and-true Clinique products. I found what works for me, and I was silly enough to try anything else.

My skin is dehydrated oily and this cleanser did not work for me. While I loved how the smallest amount of product could produce such a rich, luxurious lather, I hated the way this made my skin feel. Not to mention, I did break out.
I used this product for about a month and a half before I gave up. One of the things I abhorred was how it left my hands and face feeling squeaky clean. Post-wash film? Yes. It always bothered me because I felt like my face wasn't completely clean (that darn film!). I've tried using a teeny amount of cleanser with tons of water but that didn't help at all.
The strangest thing? After I patted my face dry with a towel, it felt fine. Not dry or stripped, and no film.
Well, even as the squeaky-clean feeling annoyed me, I would have kept with this if it hadn't broken me out -- my biggest issue with cleansers is how drying they are, and this cleanser was never drying. The one good thing is that the blemishes were never serious, as I was mostly plagued with small clogged pores and whiteheads. Still bad enough to switch, though.

This cleanser is a treasure!
I suffered a perioral dermatitis and dermatologist prescribed this cleanser, over and done with the dermatitis I still use it and will carry on doing so. Already on my third tube, had read some people complain about the inconsistency between tubes, I haven't experienced that issue.
You need a very little quantity of the product, a pea size is enough, you lather up in the palm of your hands and gently massage away the dirt and dead skin cells. It feels so soft and smooth to the touch, perfect for sensitive intolerant skin. Wash off with water and pat dry, your skin will feel clean and clear. No feeling of tightness or drying, it contains glycerine that hydrates.
I have tried a vast range of different cleansers and have never felt satisfied with any, they either dried my skin too much or made it more oily (that's the trouble of having combination skin, it's hard to find balance) but with toleriane purifying foaming cream my skin feels totally comfortable. If you have sensitive intolerant skin and you finally find something that works for you, stay with it!

I had used this cleanser for a couple years before, I could never get my skin completely
clear of acne. I always had 2 or 3 little pimples on my cheek. I did a quick reassessment of
all the products I was using and turns out that this cleanser has 5 highly-medium
comedogenic ingredients in it!! I have switched to Neutrogena's Ultra gentle foaming
cleanser and it has worked extremely well! I would suggest to reevaluate this cleanser if you
are having skin problems.

Officially my HG cleanser.. I'm on my second tube, and the first lasted me nearly 1 year with daily use. While it is pricier than other drugstore products (like the entire La Roche Posay line), it does an amazing job of cleaning the skin without any irritation and you only need the tiniest pea-size amount. I tried a few other cleansers after the first tube finished (always looking for something new), but had to come back to this one because nothing up foamed up as well and left my skin feeling as clean, without drying it out or irritating it. I love how incredibly thick and rich the foam feels, and how gently but thoroughly it cleanses. There is no fragrance, and I like to use it with my clarisonic at night to really deep clean my pores. Although I always remove waterproof eye make up first, I've noticed that other cleansers can end up leaving traces of my skin makeup on the bristles of the clarisonic - even after repeated rinsing. This never happens with the Toleriane, so it seems to do a great job of rinsing clean. I've used other gentle cleansers in the past (Purpose, Cetaphil, Cerave, Neutrogena, Clean and Clear, Vichy) and high end cleansers (Clarins, Lancome, L'Occitane, Jan Marini), this beats them all. I have combo-oily skin (oily in the summer, combo in the winter) and this works for me all year long. I've also tried LRP's Effaclar foaming cleanser, but prefer the rich foam and gentleness of this one.

I had blemishes from acnes which lasted for months covering my cheeks. I tried sebamed, it was great, but my blemishes disn't fade that much. Then my sister recommended me to try this and just in days my face was recovering. I only use the facial foam. It's really a miracle, i'm so happy my skin is coming back to normal :). It's pricey for me but i guess its gonna last a few months since u only need to squeeze out a pea size of product for the whole face, so it's worth it! But i dont like the packaging, the lid isnt strong enough so i have to place tha tube upside down so the product doesnt leak out. :( but this is a good product, after a few weeks if my skin gets better i'm DEFINITELY gonna repurchase :)

i've used this product for 10 years with good results, i have very sensitive delicate skin, this was recommended by my derm. it's very inconisistant from one tube to the next, one tube may be soothing and great and the next will dry every ounce of oil from your skin, Now i'm looking fo a new cleanser, very disappointed in a product i loved.

This one didn't work for me, and there was really nothing special about this cleanser to spend $30 on again. My skin is combo/dry and I have mild breakouts. I really like the Toleriane ultra moisturizer, and I thought I would try this. There's nothing about this cleanser that is moisturizing. Yes, the texture is creamy, but I actually found it made my skin a bit dry. It didn't fully remove my face makeup. Also, for a "pure" cleanser, I was surprised that it burned my eyes! I used it up completely, but I wouldn't purchase it again. It would be good for someone with super oily skin, but if you have dry or sensitive skin look for something else.

A few months ago I got a nasty case of contact dermatitis. I'm still not sure what caused it. At the time I had been using Clinique Acne Solutions line for 3 years and all the acids in it were aggravating the dermatitis so I had to switch to something more gentle to let it heal. That's when I found this creamy delight. With Clinique my skin had gotten blotchy, not just with acne, it was getting a little discoloured in some places, I was using the 3 step line + mask + acne solutions foundation and really it wasn't clearing up my skin. This cleanser, along with the Toleriane Fluid moisturizer, has let my dermatitis clear up without irritation and my skin colour has come back. It has relatively low ratings on EWG which makes me a super happy camper since I've been trying to get myself back into healthy mode. I notice some people on MUA complaining that it makes them squeaky clean and hands feel funny. I only ever noticed this the very first time I used it. I used a little too much product and not enough water. Since then I make sure to put a lot of water to dilute it and haven't felt funny from the soap. I love it and hope anyone on the fence about the product will give it a try. I use the Fluid moisturizer in combination and make a 1:3 ACV:concentrated green tea toner and my acne has improved tremendously. It's great for combination-oily skin.

Excellent cleanser that has lasted almost a year. I use barely a pea-sized amount in the morning as a facial wash. It's a very mild product and would probably not remove makeup as well.
