i am on my third bottle of this. i have quite sensitive, oily skin, prone to break outs and this does not irritate me at all. it does a good job of removing all my make up, even most of my mascara! it can sometimes be a teensey bit drying, but nothing that can't be cured with a bit of moisturizer, and i always do this after washing anyway. i have used a lot of different natural/ organic cleansers, and i like this one best. i like the scent....i think....actually i don't even know if i can smell it anymore! but it's very subtle, very un-offensive. i like the glass bottle, but it is kind of crappy if you are traveling with it. looks great in the bathroom.

After reading loads of reviews i decided it was time for me to try this product. I had clear skin about 2-3 years ago but after moving to London I've had mild but consistent acne, and clogged pores on my cheeks. I haven't had much success with BP, differin gel, and a few different brands of salicylic acid. I've been using diacenal for a little over a month and i've noticed a huge difference in the clarity of my skin and the frequency of breakouts. The spots i do get are smaller and quicker to dry up and heal and i have very few clogged pores. I really think this product is making a huge difference for my skin. I wear it to bed every night with no moisturizer on top. I haven't found it to be very drying but recently i've noticed that my skin looks a little dull so i may start taking one night off for a heavy moisturizer. It does not sting me when i put it on either, I find it quite pleasant actually. I would recommend this to anyone who feels they have run out of options - and it's quite affordable!
I used this product two years ago in the summer and really liked it. It covered all my minor imperfections and gave me a really even skin tone. However, i did a semester abroad in london and my skin broke out a lot (not from the make-up) and i had to buy something that offered more coverage. Now I have decided to try it again. So far, I still like it, but after buying some MAC lightful poweder in tokyo, i'm wishing this had added SPF as well.
