So, i used this in the hopes it would help with my dry skin issue but it didn't. I am on the acne.org regimen. And I use the Purpose gentle cleansing wash. And although I love that cleanser, it just really leaves my skin dry, and the regimen already makes my skin really dry. So I thought I would try this. And it was, ehhh. I didn't try washing my makeup only with the cleanser, so I can't comment on makeup removal, b/c I always remove my makeup w/ a wet cotton ball. But it didn't leave my skin any more hydrated and my skin was clear before use. However my skin didn't necessarily breakout but it wasn't as clear as it was. So I would rather have dry yet clear skin, then semi dry and a few more pimples.
This is the only moisturizer i can use. It is very hydrating for me. Although at first use it felt very thick and icky, my skin got use to it, and it realized it needed it on my skin. It is the only one that doesnt break me out or cause any irritation. I am in love with this product and i have yet to find a better moisturizer for my overly dry skin. I use this along with the acne.org regimen
I love this cleanser! it works great with my acne.org regimen. It is super gentle and the only cleanser i have found that keeps my acne at bay. I do wish it was less drying. And i do wish it was more travel friendly. But i love it, i can always rely on it to work for my acne prone and sensitive skin.

As a drugstore mineral makeup product, i think this is the best. It is excellent for dry skin and doesn't leave a heavy powder look, the powder is finely milled, and i think it leaves a very natural finish. I would only suggest this product for dry skin people b/c it does get oily as the day goes by and doesnt have the best long lasting staying power. But with my dry and acne prone skin, it has not irritated my skin at all. The kabuki brush that comes with it, is too small and to rough to use with it, i use my own brushes when applying. The color selection isnt the best, the colors are very dark. I ended up being in the light number 2 and iam a light colored hispanic. This is a great buy when they have the buy one get one free b/c u can mix colors if u need too, which is what i ended up doing. Highly recommened for dry, sensitive,acne prone skin!

I just bought this as recommended for me by paula begoun on beautypedia. For my acne prone and very dry skin due to my acne med. This is a very nice and gentle cleanser. I wouldnt recommened it for night if you are removing makeup but for morning use this is amazing. It is definetly a lot gentler than cetaphil and olay sensitive face washes. It leaves a very nice soft feeling to the skin and my face doesnt feel tight for once. I will update and let you know if this breaks out my skin as this is suppose to be for sensitive and dry skin
Good prouct, gives great coverage. And has this pretty finish that leaves your glowly.I got all sorts of comments that i looked more brighter. But it was oily. I dont think it caused further damage to my acne but i dont think it helped more either. But for anyone w/ the occasional pimple, i would recommend just because of the great finish..those with acne see my review on lancome.

After about over 6 months, i still love this product. Its light and looks so natural.. It layers excellenty (with use of makeup brush) and lasts a whole workday. I wear it at gym to school to work and face still looks great. Only wish they had more color selections but it adapts very well to my skintone. PLUS!! it doesnt cause acne. Will continue purchasing this product. Recommended to anyone who has problems with acne, could coverage that still looks natural and not oily as foundations in the market.
This product is excellent it gives a nice glow to your skin and isnt blotchy at all. It does not what so ever clog my pores. Goes on very easily and doesnt dry fast. And also has good wear time i use this with the magic powder and it leaves my face flawless. It is a bit expensive, but it is worth buying again and also it matches my skin perfectly my boyfriend actually thinks it is my skin. Absolutely love it!
i had a good review, but now i changed my mind, after 3 purchases of this cleanser with hopefulness that my results will be as a good as first started out, but my acne never did clear, or get better, it jus maintained my acne at where it was at from getting worse. Only thing is that its not drying and doesnt leave a tight feel after cleansing, but never buying again
