I have been through 3 100 ml tubes of this gel cleanser, and let me tell you, this stuff has worked like nothing else! My skin is slightly acne prone and sensitive with an oily T-zone. This gel cleanser smells extremely refreshing (it smells like freshly cut grass to me) and makes my skin feel so soft and clean that I literally look forward to using it everyday! It definitely helps in controlling break outs since it contains salicylic acid yet it is ever so gentle that I've never felt any irritation or dryness because of this. I alternate this with other cleansers depending on the need of the hour, however I will always, always repurchase this since I've yet to find a cleanser that is as gentle, refreshing and effective. Stellar stuff!

This cleanser has done wonders for my acne prone skin. I use it every night with my clarisonic, and my skin has been pretty much clear since I started using it. The best thing about it is that it keeps my acne at bay without drying out my skin. It costs about $21 per bottle at shoppers drug mart and I will definitely keep buying it.

After trying almost every face wash ( drugstore and high-end) to try to help my acne nothing worked, my skin is very sensitive and nothing i could find would help! Recently, i came across this thinking id give it a try!! and so far I LOVE IT! Ive only had it for about 4 days now and already my skin looks SO much better!! After i use this my skin feels SOOO clean and SOOO soft! It doesnt irritate my skin either which is defiently a plus for me!!! I would defiently reccomend this to anyone who is struggling with some acne and cant really handle harsh face washes!!

I love this! I've been through several bottles and will continue to repurchase. It's the only cleanser which clears my acne-prone skin and makes it feel soft and clean. It lathers well and it feels like its really cleansing deep down and leaves me with fresh looking skin. I hope I never have to use anything else.

I purchased this to help get rid of my acne spots however after using it for nearly a year now, I can say that it has not worked at all for my skin. I feel that it gets very drying at times and I dont feel that my face has been properly cleansed. Not going to repurchase.

I've been using this for the past 8 months almost, and I've gotta say I LOVE IT. I've never really been able to find a face wash to stick to. I've used spectro gel, st ives apricot scrub, neutrogena wave, clinique, aveeno deep cleansing facial wash, bath&body works tea tree oil face wash, just to name a few.
The normaderm really leaves my skin clean. I have an oily T-zone. I use the face wash respectively. I dont necessarily use it every morning or evening. I tend to use it about once a day whenever I feel like my face needs it. But I honestly do love this face wash. It has a nice lather and the smell is nice.
A definite buy for me!

I didnt find this particularly effective, Effaclar by La Roche Posay is much better. I do however like the dispensing system and I recommend you keep it to use for other cleansers where the packaging is not good. This foams well, washes off well but i just didnt feel that it did that much. The price is a little high for what it is and there are other items that are much better for the price.

I dont have acne-prone skin, but I wanted a cleanser that doesnt dry out my face but still cleans it efficiently. Ive been using this product the past 6 years of my life. I love to try new things, but kept coming back to Vichy Normaderm cleansing gel when it comes to facial cleansers. The pump-bottle makes it so easy to use and hygenic, you only need a little amount to clean your face with, it ladders easily and has a nice weak fragrance. You may think that its expensive, but one bottle of 200ml stays for about a year which makes it very cheap. This is the only product i use in the normaderm-series, I tried the moisturizers but they dried out my face too much, so I combine this product with other brands and so far it works really good.

I use this product every morning as part of the complete vichy normaderm acne prone skin line. I love this product. It is slightly fragranced but it doesn't irritate my skin. One pump is all you need as it foams up quite nicely. I don't find it aggressive enough on it's own so I use the scrub at night. I have very stubborn skin, and no matter what product I use I always have breakouts that correspond with my hormone levels. That being said, this product keeps the majority of my acne at bay. I really think that this product needs to be used as part of the system as the salicylic acid really pulls the moisture out of your face. You need to use the toner and moisturizer from the normaderm line as well. If you don't I could see it just causing you to breakout more as your skin over compensate for the dryness by producing more oil. It is a pretty heavy duty system not to be used for those with an occasional breakout. I can't see myself using anything else.

I've been using the whole normaderm skincare range for around 3-4 months now, and initially I loved it! Found that I had less spots and my skin's texture had really improved aswell :)
But recently I feel that this is not the perfect skincare range for me as it hasn't helped with my oily skin and i am starting to breakout again :(
It's a shame because this cleanser foams up really well and removes make up really well too. It has a slight fragrance but it's not overbearing at all. Good for those with sensitive skin as it also is in no way drying! As despite being oily, I am prone to dryness around the mouth and cheeks and this product did not affect that in any way
I would recommend this product to those who have combination skin with perhaps moderate acne as I do not feel that it is strong enough to tackle really bad skin, and it will not aggravate dryness.
