you don't have to have acne to use this wash. you just have to want smooth, poreless skin. like that porcelain kind. they're a lot of negative reviews for this wash. i am speechless. i have the most sensitive skin in the world, but this stuff never bothered it. i don't have acne anymore, thank goodness, but still I suffer from clogged pores, enlarged pores. i don't know why, just the way it is. i really don't even wear that much makeup. still, they persist. this cleanser cleans out the pores, over time, and will shrink them because when they are clean and empty, they are small. this makes the skin much smoother and clearer looking. if i don't use this wash, the big pores come back. this is what i do. first, wash the face with mild cleanser, baby wash, just with hands. then i use a konjac (sp?) sponge by denco with this pink cleanser. i let the sponge get very soft first. i wash for about a minute to give this cleanser time to soak into the skin and clean the pores. then i rinse really really well. pat dry. when skin still damp i put on a variation of lotions or creams. sometimes serums. but always i put on a lotion or cream, usually clinique. i think the trick to this cleanser is to not use it twice a day. just use it once a day. if it causes too much dryness use it every other day. tinker around. also, put on a lotion afterwards. by no means let your skin stay without lotion after using this wash. it will dry it out too much. that being said, i've gone back to using it and after just five days now, my pores are so much clearer and smaller and my skin is a lot smoother and refined. this stuff is great.
