This has been the saving grace of my adolescent face and wallet.

I had severe acne problems since i was 9 and nothing worked for my face. It's unfortunate I couldn't find this until 7-8 yrs later, but it's ok. We're together now and we're happy.

I wouldn't recommend this to people with mild acne problems -- it will only dry out your skin and this is for pretty severe acne. also, get a good moisturizer with this. I recommend the faceshop 0% oil moisturizer. pricey but works like no other in keeping me not so anointed with oil.

contains no benzoyl peroxide which we Koreans hate for the darkening effects it has.

I have been using this product for about a year and the quality is good. It is not impressive or amazing but it does its job. It reduces my acne, relieves breakouts, and keeps my face clean. It is a little bit drying and my skin feels tight so I use green tea as a toner afterward. I absolutely love the pleasant smell, this cleanser smells like honeysuckle! The packaging is okay since the cap makes it easy for me to get the right amount of product, just one pea-sized drop and you're good to go! Now, about the price... I purchased this cleanser for about $16 and I don't believe it's worth the price since the product did not make my skin perfect as I expected. Although I would recommend it, I would not repurchase it because there are a lot more better cleansers out there and I would like to try them.

I've used more than 4 bottles of this product so I feel pretty confident about this review.

I have oily skin and this cleanser is suited for people with acne. The reason I keep going back to this cleanser is because it really cleanses my face well (in combination with my clarisonic mia). I can't use those "gentle cleansers" because they aren't enough. I wear makeup on a daily basis. So after I take off my makeup with a cleansing oil, I go over and cleanse my face a second time with a foaming face wash and a clarisonic.

YOU NEED TO USE TONER RIGHT AWAY, after using this product. I think the reason why the other reviewers broke out or their face got more oily is because they let the cleanser dry their face out. This cleanser is super drying. You need to use toner and emulsion afterwards. Don't use this cleanser alone and then go to bed. You'll definitely be ruining your skin and drying it out.

My skin is sensitive & using this breaks me out. It leaves a really tight and dry feeling after using it. Maybe because I have combo skin, I think this suits skin which is acne prone & oily instead.

Won't be re-purchasing and I'm still left with 90% of it.

Honestly this product was good the first bottle! how ever i was using the charcoal face wash and it was good but made me brake out and have a lot of black heads on my nose! which i don't like. okay going back to this product, i've bought this bottle after i was done with the charcoal face wash i used it for a couple days and then my face cleared up a little bit. then i started breaking out i don't know if it is the weather because it's humid and a lot of sun but i always wash my face with cold water and i still break out! i don't recommend this product to any one that has oily face. I always wash my face before bed and i'll wake up with hella oily face in the morning.

Note: I've been using this cleanser for about two weeks.

Pros:I like the smell of the cleanser. It leaves my face feeling pretty fresh and clean. I think I spent around $12 - $13 CAD (Canadian Dollars) on it at TheFACEShop store near my house, which I don't think is a bad price since I only need a pea size amount to be able to lather my face. I've noticed a small difference in my skin since I've been using it, some of my little bits of acne have dissappeared.

Cons: The only thing I don't like is that while it does make my face feel fresh and clean, it also makes it feel a little tight.

Final thoughts: I really like this cleanser and I will most likely buy another one after I use up the rest of the bottle I have. :)

I got this as a bonus for shopping and buying many products for 120$. And that's a good thing that I didn't actually buy this on purpose. Because after using this product, I realized that: This product didn't even cleanse my face, it dried out my face entirely, and I felt my skin itchy after washing my face with this cleansing foam.
It also stings! The acnes wouldn't get better. I think the ingredients are too harsh for my skin.
Will never purchase this.

This was an OK cleanser for me. It's not really that special other than the fact that they (Face Shop) claims they use natural ingredients. It keeps my acne at bay and reduces the redness. It smells alright (like tea) but it leaves that tight, squeaky clean feeling that I don't really like. I've used this for more than six months and I'm almost finished with the bottle. I'm not the type to keep using one cleanser because I always love to try new things, unless I find one that I absolutely love, so I probably won't be repurchasing it. I bought it at The Face Shop store in the CBD. It was probably around ~AUD$15, which is not too expensive for a cleanser. I cannot remember the exact price for it.

I've been using this cleanser for a year or so. This is already i think my 6th bottle. if i did not miss count. >< This foam cleanser really helps me acne problem! I swear! Last year I'm still suffering from acne problems. But after using this foam cleanser, it REALLY helps my acne problem! Now, all my acne is cleared. But i'm still going to continue using to prevent any future acne from popping out! My face always feels really clean and refreshing after washing with this foam cleaner. It also have a nice green tea scents. The price is also very cheap. $16.90 for a bottle, I suppose? But i usually get mine from www.sunnaz.com.sg . Because they sell it at very cheap price, at only $9.90!! But not included the shipping fee at $5. But I always purchase it with skinfood masks and also laneige sleeping pack. They are really selling at very cheap prices!

And yes!!!!! I will repurchase this foam cleanser again and again!
