It had helped to prevent my hormonal breakouts, also it doesn't dry my skin as much as other cleansers.

I like this cleanser. It makes my face feel great and clear.. It deep cleans which I like. I like. The fragrance but I'd prefer if it wasn't there.

This cleanser is mild and not too drying. It's not medicated, so don't expect it to clear acne by itself, but it is gentle enough to be used in conjuction with acne treatments. The good thing about...

Okay so I really like the toner and the moisturiser (Duo+) from the effaclar line but this I can't particularly say I was a fan of. I mean it might not be horrible for some people but it didn't...

The best face wash I have ever used. I've tried every cleanser from high end brands like kiehls paulas choice, first aid beauty, lush, clinique, kaya skin clinic to name a few to drugstore brands...

I've been using this for several months in conjunction with the clarifying toner. The overall effect: drying, and it doesn't prevent breakouts AT ALL. I really expected more from this brand.
