First off , I'm nineteen and I have these annoying tiny pimples all over my forehead.I had been looking for a natural acne cleanser for a long time so I picked this up from the Organic shop at the beauty section.It was about $15 , which is pretty expensive for a cleanser but I really love that it contains green tea and salicylic acid ( 2%) to help with my stubborn acne.It also contains no harsh ingredients. The first time I used it , I immediately was turned off by the gross chemical-like smell the runny texture and fact that the color is a gross green.The package was pretty annoying too because the contents would easily spill out.After I cleansed , I felt clean and refreshed but mostly dry. I've been using it for about a month and I can say that its helped with the acne somewhat , as any acne cleanser would.I wouldn't recommend this product because I can easily find something more effective for a cheaper price.

This acne wash really does the trick of making your skin feel clean and clear. When I first started using it I saw great results, but then it started to feel like my skin was drying out even though I have pretty oily/combination skin. I continued to use it anyway (since it comes in such a huge bottle) and I find that it doesn't really dry my skin out anymore...I can use it daily.
A few downfalls: The gel itself is pretty runny and it's super easy to accidentally squeeze a large amount because the container has a large pouring cap thingy...I always end up wasting a lot of it. Also, NEVER get this stuff in your eyes, I've done this twice (inevitably) and it stings like crazy...it's unbearable actually...it feels like your eyes are set on fire and then gouged out and the stinging lasts for hours...kind of makes you wonder what the heck is in the wash itself.

At first it really helped me and reduced redness and number of pimples I had, but then it started drying out my face. My skins sensitive so I guess thats why it really dried some spots out..I guess if your skin is oily this cleanser would be good for you. I like having it for emergencies, but I wouldn't personally use it as a twice a day cleanser.

I tried this product once a couple of years ago and ordered it again after I wanted to try a simple BHA cleanser. This is the best! It gets makeup off and it really deep cleans so well. It is also gentle and has simple ingredients. I love this!

I really like this cleanser. It is NOT for folks with dry skin though as it can be a bit drying. If your face is oily you may like. It does foam and my face feels nice and clean afterwards. I still like the Marcelle Aquarelle cleanser but I found it wasn't drying enough for my needs. This one does have a smell to it even though none is listed. I'm assuming it must be the green tea extract (and it is a pleasant smell). I did email the company to confirm that there wasn't anything else in the product besides what is listed since I couldn't figure out what the cleansing agent was. I received a prompt email back that salicylic acid is the cleansing agent. This cleanser only has a few ingredients. I have been using the product now for about 10 days and really like it. For those in Toronto, I picked it up for about $9 in Kensington Market.

I was looking for a cleanser with salicylic acid that would exfoliate my skin and not irritate it. I have combo/sensitive/acne prone skin and lots of things irritate me. My current regimen is on my notepad but if i stray to try new produts i often end up a mess and breakout. Dermamed is so simple- there are only 4 ingredients- so i figured there would be little chance of it irritating me. It is a canadian brand but it got to me pretty quick and they had sent me a sample first ( the sample took longer than the product to get to me.)
I think it smells good, foams up nicely, and exfoliates( my skin feels smoother afterwards and it got rid of some clogged pores.) Because this is a cleanser you have to massage in for a few minutes in order for the active ingredient to work. I can see it potentially being slightly drying so probably best for oily, or combo skin. been using for a little over a week so far at night only. any new zits i get are smaller and going away quicker. I remove my makeup first with paula's cleanser and then i massage this in after for a few min and rinse off. I follow with my aubrey vegecol toner and then some silkia camellia oil. I am actually surprised at how much i like it so far and will definitely repurchase at this point. i will update when i've been using longer. i don't really breakout on my body but i can see this being good as a body wash and also to help prevent ingrown hairs in the bikini area. UPDATE
still using this cleanser at night only. it got rid of a skin colored bump that had been on my face for years on my cheek. it never turned into a zit so i didn't mess w/ it but this cleanser must have opened it up and then it just came off. Anyway this cleanser is a little drying so I may cut back my usage but it definitely exfoliates. I measure the ph level yesterday and it seems to be about 3.5.
Still using and liking and found a new use for it- mix it w/ the aspirin and make a mask- makes a great exfoliant. the only issue i have is that no company that sells it will tell me what exactly the cleansing agent is and i've emailed several times.
