Great with the oil control. Usually by midday, if I press my face to a sheet of normal paper it will become translucent. No kidding. Even blotting papers don't work for me, because the oil just goes right through. Anyways with this product my skin still gets a little oily around the nose, but my cheeks and forehead stay matte and it looks healthy, not greasy. I like the citrus smell and it goes on pretty thick, almost like a powdery white paste. However I do feel that by the end of the day there are these tiny little colourless bumps on my cheeks and forehead that look like they are going to break out (and I don't wear makeup), but after a deep cleanse with my clarisonic it all goes away. Sooo maybe a little pore clogging but still an awesome product and it is the only "oil control" skincare product that really works for me.

Awesome awesome awesome After years of trying expensive acne skincare products, this has just done it for me (knock on wood). My skin has been pimple free for the past few weeks, even around my menstrual cycle and I know it's not just my teenage imbalance in hormones returning to normal. My skin still gets really oily and if I don't use it I'll start breaking out. And it makes my skin so bright and clear, making my pores invisible!! This stuff works. I like to soak several cotton pads and just leave it to sit on my skin for 2 minutes. This uses a lot but it's really inexpensive anyway. :) You never know what you can find at your local supermarket that can change your life.
I love this cleanser because of how clean it makes my skin feel and it is non-drying. I didn't expect to like a Chanel skincare product but I do as it really clears up my skin. I love the idea of the Tulip Tree and Meadowsweet extract and the tiny jojoba beads exfoliate so lightly that I could use this twice a day! However it was (as expected) rather pricey like all Chanel products are and it costed $56 AUD for 150mL but I only need to use a little amount (I mean little! Half a pea) to get it to lather nicely, as it is a mousse cleanser. This would probably last me eight months or more. The smell is quite fresh and clean however it can be overpowering for sensitive noses (the smell lingers after I wash it off). The packaging is very good quality but I was disappointed when it came with a screw cap/lid. Overall I was satisfied with the product and I would love to repurchase it. :)
