This is a great basic cleanser. It's very mild and the cleanser itself does not leave your face tight or dry after washing (it's more the BP). I agree with some of the reviewers that it doesn't seem to treat the acne (that's step 2's job, again, BP). But it's a good cleanser if you have sensitive skin. I used it (and the regimen) for about 5 months before my skin started to clear up, I've since strayed from this and have been hopping around the market. The high shipping cost is what is deterring me from going back to it but it's worth a shot if you're looking to try a gentle cleanser or checking out the line in general.

NC25 Chinese, oily acne prone skin living in AZ's dry desert climate.

3/22/13 UPDATE: After having gone thru near 2 bottles of this, I used this as a double cleanse in the shower after some kind of makeup oil remover (Fancl, Boscia or jojoba oil). Always still found some makeup residue during my tone routine, so it was really good.. but still not perfect. I've just done a test w/ uber gentle Paula Choice's Skin Balancing cleanser, and it removes makeup and leaves my toner pad pretty clean. So still is great and had a place in my heart and still would recommend for others as part of the total regimen, but for my waterproof sunscreen and heavier foundations, I'm ready to move onto PC (and probably also remove the makeup oil remove part too).

From most to least stripping:
Avene Cleanance > LRP Effaclar > cleanser

I live in a dry, dry, dry climate, so after double cleansing (either w/ oil pre-shower but always 2x beginning and ending in the shower), I immediately can tell how stripped my skin might feel when I exit the shower since we have no humidity in AZ. cleanser is the most gentle and effectively removes make up (if you count the oil cleanse plus the 2x in the shower)... it will remove regular mascara just fine and not completely for waterproof (nor do I use eye makeup remover).

This cleanser is okay, but I cannot stand the smell and it doesnt really help acne. Just a basic for getting your face clean.

This worked for roughly a week; it seemed to promote the healing of acne whilst balancing the oil on my skin which is really all I needed. However, after those initial few days of good skin, all hell broke loose! My face is a pimply mess right now with spots popping up in places I wouldn't usually find them. I suspect that the high glycerin content may have been the culprit here, since I've reacted similarly to other glycerin-based products in the past. It's a shame that it doesn't jive with my skin when it works so well for others, but considering's exorbitant shipping costs to the UK it's almost a relief.

I have light acne from time to time. I was hoping this will work to clear my skin up because of the reviews here. but I have been using this twice a day for more than 2 months and couldn't tell any difference of my skin. It didn't make it worse, but considering the shipping fee I had to pay to get this, I won't buy again.

Stumbled on since i was diagnosed with acne (hormonal) and my chin was very bad!! Now i'm very light and only some red marks left. This is defiantly my favorite cleanser, though the description tells to use 2 pumps. I've found 1 pump more then enough. It does dry my skin a little after but works good in combination with moisturizer after. Lathers up well and leaves my face clean! Thank you!!! I will never switch from cleaner again

I Know I Rated It A 5 And I havnt Even Tried This Product Yet! (Still Waiting For My Package To Come In The Mail!) But Im Super Excited and Cant Wait to Update This Comment With My First Week Results!!!! :D Fingers Crossed!!!! ^v^

Im Not sure how i feel about it :/ I Wont Say its Bad But Its Rather On The Dry Side. My Skin Gets SUPER Thirsty After Using The Wash And Applying The Treatment Dosnt Help The Dryness Either. I Think Ima Stick With My Other Cleanser, But If I Run Out I'll Use This Again.
BTW: The Oatmeal/Honey/Lemon Mask Is Amazing For ACNE!!!!

I have super sensitive, reactionary skin, which is prone to dehydration. I can't even use Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser. BUT this cleanser works for me. It's really gentle, doesn't dry my skin out too much, and it doesn't irritate me. It also removes my make up pretty well (I only wear powder sometimes). I would definitely buy this again if I don't find something even more gentle/better.

Note - I did have adverse reactions to the moisturizer and treatment from the same line. I can only use the cleanser in my skincare routine.

Useless Product!! This cleanser is extremely light. It doesn't feel like it cleans my skin at all. It has a light, fresh scent and is very thin and doesn't lather. The cleanser hardly feels like it does anything. Doesn't remove makeup. Cleanses the very top layer of the skin but doesn't absorb to open up pores. However it is very mild and gentle. Didn't break me out but also didn't help either. Has no active ingredients which is pointless considering it's from I wouldn't recommend this product is to anyone with combination, oily or acne prone skin. If you have dry or normal skin this would be great just to give a light clean but I sure you could find something the same if not better over the counter. However if you have very dry skin I would recommend something to add moisture to your skin. Overall I don't like this product and wouldn't buy it again.
