I have only used this once. I have v oily but v dehydrated sensitive acne-prone skin. I stay in the tropics (hot & humid) with air-conditioning at night. After washing my face at night, I dapped my skin dry, squeezed out a pea-sized amount which I then rubbed between my palms. I then patted in the moisturizer. It left a v thin layer of grease on my face but also kept it soothed and moisturized. I would use this but probably not during the day unless if I 'm traveling during winter.

I have only used this once to remove sunscreen from my v oily but v dehydrated sensitive and acne-prone skin. I wanted to get the sensitive version but it's not available where I am. The ingredients are fairly similar by & large. I had to rinse a few times to ensure my skin's totally clear of the product. There is a slight film left after cleansing but my skin feels soothed, soft and supple. I would continue using this as my makeup remover and update if there is any adverse reaction. I prefer this to Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser which can be harsh/drying. For now, this is love.

I used this for my face and body and it really calmed my v oily but v dehydrated sensitive and acne-prone skin. I would have given it 5- stars if it had been even more hydrating but that's me being lazy, wanting to skip the moisturizer. I have finally found my HG sensitive skin cleanser but I messed it up by buying Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser as everyone's saying you shouldn't use a body wash for the face. That was a bit too harsh/drying for me. I don't have the QV facial products available here. So until I find something better, this will be love. P/s I can't believe this is cheaper and better than Cetaphil and I heart Australia for saving my skin. (QV is an Australian company.)
I was using QV Gentle Wash for my body and face, however I thought it more advisable to use a gentle cleanser that also specifies for use on face. Some background: My skin is v oily but v dehydrated and is very sensitive and acne-prone. Worst of the lot... I am staying in the tropics (hot & humid) with some air-conditioning at night. Cetaphil was v gentle for my sensitive skin but it was also too drying for my skin. my skin felt a bit tight after using it 2 times. This is probably due to the SLS. This left my skin feeling clean but flaky. I also tried the Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser which left my skin oily and a little dehydrated. However, the Cetaphil Cream was excellent! After washing my face, I pat it semi-dry and applied just a wee bit. It left my skin only a teeny weeny bit oily but my skin felt protected and soothed. I won't use the Cetaphil cleansers again. I would rather use the QV Gentle Wash for my face and Olay Moisture Balancing Foaming Wash for makeup removal. I would have preferred to get the Olay Foaming Facial Wash for sensitive skin but can't get it. Btw, QV is much cheaper than Cetaphil but more hydrating and gentle if you need an alternative to this.
