I quite liked this product at first but after using it for about two weeks, I noticed it started to dry my skin out. My face felt tight after using it and it didn't help keep my pores clear at all....

If you very oily breakout prone skin this is a really good cleanser. If you have combo sensitive skin like me it can be too drying. I go this in the Effaclar Acne Kit. I love the Clarifying lotion...
