I've tried everything for my finicky, sensitive, sometimes-oily, sometimes-dry skin that frequently breaks out owing to a medication I take. I love this cleanser because it really gets all the New York City grime off my face (I don't really wear makeup other than mascara, but I imagine it would be great for that, too). I massage it in and then remove it using a cotton pad spritzed with Breath of Fresh Air toner, and my skin ends up clean and soft. I follow it up with Paradise Regained and I get happy, acne-free, glowing skin. It's a little pricey for me, but as a vegan with problem skin, the quality and animal-friendly products at LUSH are worth it!
