I will definitely have to update this review at the one month mark, but I've used this cleanser for the last few days and am really happy with it so far. I know it's too soon to get excited, as that's just how acne-prone skin works :(
What I like - It doesn't irritate my skin, it doesn't seem drying, it gets off all my makeup and sunscreen, and it leaves my skin feeling super soft. I had a concentrated spot of closed comedones on my cheek that wouldn't budge, and between switching my concealer and using this cleanser at night they're finally purging, but without any breakouts in areas that didn't already have something going on. My skin looks glowy.
What I don't like - I bought this at Sephora when I was returning a different face cleanser, and the lady at the counter was super enthusiastic about this one as she said she had similar problems with the cleanser I was returning. I was uncertain because I didn't know if I wanted to fall in love with a cleanser whose full size retails for $38USD. I bought the travel size based on her enthusiasm for it (she was also really nice), and so far plan on using the entire tube, and buying the full size if I'm happy with it. I like the smell but it's the only scented skincare product I use. Would always prefer using an unscented product. I also know that whatever is in this exfoliating is on the face for a very short time, but it seems to be working.
Month Update: This product, used at night rather than the recommended twice a day, has helped some problem spots on my skin purge in a way that felt gentle, and it's an all-star cleanser for removing makeup and sunscreen efficiently. As far as glowiness goes, I don't think that continued use has helped tremendously in that arena. I still have the majority of the travel sized tube I bought left and will definitely finish it and update again, but I think that I would still rather use a less expensive daily cleanser, and invest more in other aspects of my skincare regimen.
Long review, but another update: I've continued to use this cleanser, but I'm starting to suspect that the "purging" is going on for too long. I might continue to use this, but I'm considering going back to my old cleanser. Not sure if it's necessary to use an exfoliating wash every day either. Took off another lippie for the continued pimples.
Final update: I stopped using this and my skin is CHILLING out, finally. I think this actually broke me out really badly - I was getting way more pimples, all the time. Bummer, cause I sort of miss the smell.
