There are 4 different forms of this cream cleanser. There are versions for Oily skin, Normal, Dry Skin and the one for Combination Skin. I've used all of them but, this review is for the Combination version. I've never been one to repurchase the same cleanser twice or to use any of them up. Ideal Balance for Combination skin I've purchased 4 times so far. I have very sensitive combination skin, with large pores on my cheeks & nose, dry skin outside of the T-zone, and normal skin under my nose and chin & neck. Needless to say it has been hard to find a good cleanser. If I found one that cleaned my oily areas it stripped my dry areas. This cream cleanser fills the bill! My skin has never felt cleaner. It cleanses and removes some mascera's like a cold cream, but has suds like a soap. I do believe that my large pores look cleaner and they definitely feel cleaner. Personally, I haven't had any breakout problems, but I use a good quality Retinol cream and a Vitamin E and Alpha Hydroxy Moisturizer on top after I've toned with Witch Hazel. If your combination skin is further toward the dry side try the Dry skin version, it's also very good, especially in the Winter time. The normal skin version is very good too, but I needed more cleansing power in the pore area. All the versions smell very good as well. I'm sensitive to many scents in skin products, but these didn't irritate my skin at all.
