I received this product free from my sister last year and loved it instantly. It was different, expensive and something that differed from my Neutogena which was doing nothing. The product leaves your face feeling "clean", however it doesn't remove any makeup, just oil. And I agree with other users that it leaves a film, that doesn't really rinse off. I ran out of it and invested in the bottle myself because I thought it was the only cleanser that worked .
Now I had acne. But it had gotten consistently worse ever freaking week....I thought I had cystic acne. I thought it was the benzyl peroxide. I thought it was my moisturizers. I thought it was the tretonin. I thought I had bed bugs. I thought it was my diet... It didn't make sense.
I tried so many different combinations,and every week I would get pimples. HUGE ones, sometimes in a row, big red bumps.Often whiteheads and filled with grossness. And it made no sense, why I would always get these pus filled bumps. (sorry for the details). I went on here and read the reviews. One reviewer that was in Tokyo mentioned skin purging, and BAM. I realized that the only thing that I hadn't changed in the past 1.5 yrs was the cleanser. I usually am smarter than this, but I just figured that it was helping me..
So I stopped using it and now have no more breakouts. Thank God. I have to deal with all of the dark spots on my face now from months and months of huge pimples. My skin is dark so it really shows, but I would rather cover the spots with makeup than attempt to hide the pimples because I never could.
I say use cautiously if you dare and be careful.
