This definitely isn't for people with dry skin, but if you're slightly oily or acne prone like me it's such as Neutrogena oil-free, and the smell is much better as well (slightly citrusy). I got a 6.7 oz bottle on Amazon for $18 and it lasted about 3 months, so it's a little on the expensive side. I wouldn't say it cleared up my acne but it kept it from getting worse, which is rare for me.

$7 on clearance at TJ Maxx. Every Jan/Feb my skin gets all funky & drab & dry & oily & wacked out if I'm in cold weather. This works well to dry out that annual mid-winter break out. My usual save-me-from-my-break-out products aren't working this year. Enter: Vichy.
It has .5% salicylic acid, which usually CAUSES me to break out. After 3 uses, this is really working. It's definitely drying (after 4 uses my nose was peeling), so I'm doubling up on moisturizer, and exfoliating daily to get the dead skin cells away. Also using moisturizing masks. Now it's fine.

I have combo, acne prone Mediterranean skin that responds well to frequent changes in cleansers, and this one will stay in my rotation. It smells fresh, lathers up well, comes in a pump bottle, and rinses off well...leaves my skin feeling a bit tight and clean. I also use Alba Botanica Hawaiian Pineapple Enzyme Cleanser - love it!

I wouldn't use this daily if I weren't breaking out. It can be used just on areas with acne to avoid drying out the entire face.

So my mom bought this for me because my blemishes got worse but she didn't ask if it was good for dry skin, and it's not. It leaves my skin very dry and tight after I wash it with this product plus i'm pretty sure that this product made me break out. I don't know about other people but this is my experience with it.

Incredible product it's a godsend having battled acne as a teenager this is the only product which keeps it at bay. I noticed my pores appear smaller and skin feels and looks so soft. I advise those with dry or combination skin to stay clear of this product it's not for everyone. I have to say I love it

This is probably the worst cleanser I have ever used. I have sensitive combination skin, have breakouts on my chest and shoulders. At shoppers drug mart, the sales woman raved about this product, she said it was the best one that they carried. My mother is a huge fan of Vichy products, so I thought I'd give it a try. I paid like 25CAD for this which I thought was a bit much but maybe it was worth it.
So I used it for about a week and oh my god. My pimples were worse than before! I used it as a face wash for my relatively clear skin, I was covered in pimples! It didn't do anything for my chest and shoulders except make it worse.
I will never buy this product again, for the price I expexted a lot better. Don't waste your money! I'll stick with clean and clear or clearasil any day!

I've been using this cleanser on and off for a few years now. I wouldn't say its my favourite cleanser EVER but I usually keep a bottle for when my skin is going through a breakout or acne phase. I find that using this for a week or two will clear my skin right up! Love the vichy line and this product does what it claims to do and clears up my skin. Will continue to repurcahse whenever I run out, and keep as a backup for those suprise breakout times.

Woaw how I hated this cleansing gel. I used it about 2 years ago and never touched it since.
I bought it as a sample in a kit because I wanted to see what is the hype. Long story short, this gel cleaned my skin alright till it made it also very very dry. I used it for a few times because I thought I give it some time. But my skin looked pretty bad so I stopped using it. It smelled nice and I liked the cute, small green bottle but too bad it dried my skin so badly. I would never repurchase.

this is a great cleanser! it's not too harsh on my skin and always leaves it feeling clean. it deeply cleanses without stripping moisture from my face and that's something i always look for when i'm choosing cleansers. this worked wonders when my skin wasn't too acne prone, but after awhile i started having hormonal changes and i began breaking out on my forehead. i reunited with this cleanser and it doesn't do as good of a job as i remember it doing, but that's also due in part to my own situation. though this does help to keep it under control. i think it has an amazing, especially for a more prestigious brand. i highly recommend this cleanser.

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).
