I will start this off by letting you know I have sensitive skin. I don't have a big issue with acne, however I do have hormonal breakouts. About one week a month, my chin looks like it got the chicken pox. I cannot use any cleaners that promise clear skin because I always break out, dry out, and my skin becomes red and irritated. My cosmetician belives that it is the salicylic acid and it is a very harsh chemical. So, I was very leary when buying Lancome Clarifying cleanser. But here I am a week later, no break outs, no dry skin, and my acne seems to be clearing up at a good pace. I am sure it is working as a preventative also, it never fails that I wake up with small white pimples in the crease of my nose. I have not woke up with one single tiny pimple. This is the first time in many years (since puberty) that I haven't had a single tiny pimple all week! Most products designed to clear up skin seem to smell like medecine. This product smells fresh and clean. My skin did not dry, it felt very clean..and well...it felt like skin. But just like any Lancome product, do not use much!!!! I used a small dallop enough to fill my two fingertips, and it was too much! I rinsed like 3 times to get it off my face. I recommend a small pea-sized drop. I am assuming this cleanser could last me over a year. So, don't be fooled by the price: you may not have to buy another cleanser for a year or 2. That will save lots of $$$. This product does not seem to remove eye makeup very well, but I had high hopes for that. My skin also tends to get oily a few hours into my day, this product controlled oil all day. No kidding. I think this product will be a permanent fixture in my bathroom for a long time.
