I SHOULD HAVE MORE THIS LONG AGO! This is so mild and light for my skin. It is totally loving it. No breakouts from usage after 3 weeks. I was initially very skeptical since it is a hydrating product, but it has made me dull skin, more moist. I am pleased with the product. I dont think there is any negative review on this product. Bought the one targeted at acne-prone skin in Japan, will use it once I am done with this huge bottle.

I didnt like the aftermath of using it, my skin still feels greasy no matter how many times I wash it off with water. It is probably more suitable for normal skin type. Pros: Big bottle; affordable Pretty packaging Nice texture Cons: A little too oily Mineral oil
This is not suitable for acne-prone skin which is dehydrated because it is a little too drying. However, I have seen it worked wonders for combination skin so as stated it is meant for normal/combination skin types.
This is one very confusing product. It was extremely oily for me but this is met for acne-prone skin so I dont know what to say. It works for some but not all.
I have repurchased this product 3 times. I love how moisturising it is but it has a weird silicon feeling to it so I decided to stop using it.

I honestly dont know what it does. It cant cleanse well at all!

My face didnt like it when I was suffering from mild acne. I think Ettusias is too oily for my skin. My skin broke out even more after using this.
I love the gel texture of this oil cleanser and my face doesnt feel greasy after use BUT since it contains mineral oil, i'm staying away from it after one bottle. It didnt cause breakout when I was using it but I was just suffering from oily skin when I used it.

It just didnt work for me. My face was oily after 2 hours; I experienced tightness from it. I've heard so many success stories about it so I went ahead to purchase it but my skin just didnt like it. I think this is a NO NO for acne-prone skin. It clogs my pores and causes redness.
I used it religiously every night for a month but I didnt see much whitening effect. It was moisturising enough for a humid country but I really didnt like the smell of alcohol. It was overpowering.
After hearing so much of it, I finally bought it and I love it. The most oil cleanser I've used so far. I was using Shu Uemura before it. It was great but I didnt like the oily feeling I get after washing it off. It is comparable to the Ettusais one which I love as well but I cant decide if I should continue using Ettusais because it contains mineral oil.
I have used about 3 of this; and it has helped me to remain fair although I was working directly under the sun for about a year. It does what it promises. I use just one pump each time and it is more than sufficient.
I started using this as my only cleanser on a daily basis for about 3 months but it did nothing for my skin so I switched to using it only in the morning. It is one of the rare cleansers that doesnt cause redness after cleansing so that's great for me. I've tried HABA previously, and if I would to compare. Both are about the same. I believe both are mild cleanser for people with normal skins, there is simply no oil control at all. I love powder wash so I'll continue to find my HG powder wash.
This is my favourite product from Fancl. The whitening effect is beyond words. I love how my acne-prone skin doesnt not react in a negative way towards it. If only, the pricing is cheaper, I'll use this every alternate day. This is a luxury product right now, so I use it once every fortnight. My skin is always a tad brighter after using this and it doesnt clog my pores.
Pros: Great sunscreen for coverage A little goes a long way Doesnt absorb UVA Cons: Too oily for my skin and body
