Used this product for about 3 years with great results until about 6 months ago. It made my skin tight and dry, which was followed by an increase in sebum production. I have combination skin; I need to wipe down my forehead a few times during the day and I don't wear anything on my face except a light moist. & pressed powder. Switched to the lighter, creamier cleanser in the same family. Skin was not tight but still got WHs. Abandoned ship since then.

Note that I was using the day and night moisturizers in the same family.

In desperation, I got into the honey masks am/pm, love results. So far (2 weeks).

I have been using this and the matchig normaderm lotion toner for about 2 months now and it's really helped my skin. I have combination skin that's very sensitive to products but even worse with hormones/diet. Although my skin hasn't completely cleared up (minor acne along my jaw and unclear skin/color all over) it's really helped make the overall appearance of my face much clearer and the break outs around my jaw haven't happened since a week into using it. If you have bad acne and dry skin I would stay away from this just because it's very drying and is still pretty mild. My pros are: lathers nice, skin feels amazing after,clearer skin. My cons are: expensive, can't use it without the toner, very strong perfume smell. I had a hard time justifying that something that smelt so strong of perfume would be alright on my sensitive skin but it doesn't seems to be bothering it at all. If you manage to always have broken out skin that isn't full blown acne, give this a try! I'll continue buying for sure.

I have oily skin and alway get 2 or 3 big blemishes near my nose on my cheeks. But after using this product, it reduced my blemishes so much cuz probably only one or two come in a month now. It's a great product. It worked for me :)

This is a great product. Why? Because it WORKS. It does exactly what it says it's gonna do. I struggled with cystic acne for years, and this cleanser was literally - and I don't use the term lightly - the only thing that worked. It has a great smell, foams up beautifully and leaves your skin squeaky-clean and spot-free. It also prevents facial oil-slicks halfway through the day and minimises pores. I'd recommend it to anyone struggling with their skin.

I have been using this product now for about 5 days. I have not enjoyed it so far. I have sensitive and combination skin. I do not have bad acne however I do often get pimples on my chin. Since using this face wash I have gotten small red under the skin bumps all over my forehead and getting other red dots around my nose and mouth. I find the matching moisturizer also makes my skin oiler than it has ever been. I have never been self-conscious about my skin but it is looking very bad now. Tomorrow I am going to go to the shops and return to my Aveeno skin scare routine.

I really didn't like this product at all. I had been using Body Shop's Vitamin E facial scrub for years and decided to try another product to see if it could help my skin more. I discovered the Normaderm Cleansing Gel and decided to try it out. It did nothing positive for me at all other than break my skin out. I stuck with it for a month and as soon as that month had passed I couldn't wait to switch back to my Body Shop scrub.

All skin types are different, but this product did nothing for me and I would not recommend it at all.

I've been using this every night for a little over a year and I definitely love it. It does a great job at cleansing the skin while treating my acne prone skin. It does however, dry my skin out a little, especially in the winter,but I just use a serum and then my moisturiser on top to combat the dryness. Overall I think Vichy does a great job at making products that aren't too harsh so that people with sensitive skin can use them without having to worry.

This is a good cleanser if your skin is both very oily and acne prone without sensitivities (acne not just some blemishes, there's a difference). I say this because it can be drying to skin when you're using it daily.

I like to use this product in the summer when it gets very hot and humid. But I find I have to switch to a different cleanser for the drier Winter months (generally to LRP Effaclar).

Hope this helps! :)

I have used this product during my teens and 20's and it is a good cleanser. It does not dry your skin. However, I think my skin got used to this cleanser over time, hence I switch back and forth to La Roche and Vichy gel cleansers.
