This completely dried out my skin, made it peel and sting like crazy. Maybe my skin isn't oily enough, yet it claims to be for sensitive skin so I was surprised at how much it irritated my skin....

I really like this gel cleanser. The texture is light and foams lightly and surprisingly doesn't strip my face of all moisture. My skin just feels incredibly clean and happy afterwards. The...

I loooove the texture of this. It melts so nicely and feels silky. It does dry the skin a little bit, but does wonder for blemishes. Maybe I'll use it for areas I usually develop some pimples, but...

Too drying for my combination skin. Had to stop using due to the irritation I get when I react to a product (coarse, red bumps on my cheeks and neck).

I read many reviews about this being a bit too drying but it was perfectly fine for me as it cleansed well without leaving my face stripped of moisture. It has a bit of an odd scent - not bad and I...

I ran out of Cerave's Foaming Facial Cleanser and decided to get Effaclar Gel instead, mainly because it was significantly cheaper. All I needed was something to wash my face that wouldn't break...
