Not happy

This cleanser broke me out like crazy, it also hurts my skin right the point I put it on. I do not know why. I used it alone in the morning and with Foreo at night, it hurted and got my skin itchy both times. At first, I thought it is normal as it cleansed, but I started to broke out, I did not think it is because of the cleanser, but when my skin got to the point so severe, I ditched my skincare routine and cleansed with salty water, the acne gradually went away. As soon as I went back on the routine, my skin broke out again, That is to say: it took me a while to realise that this cleanser is not right for me, before it, I never thought that a wash-off product could break you out

Gentle on the skin

I use this cleanser at night after my oil cleanser if I am wear makeup. It doesn't take off makeup well, but if you only wore sunscreen this should be fine. It is a gel like consistency that feels very hydrating and gentle on the skin. If your skin is suffering from chemical burns from using too many actives, this cleanser will help calm it down. I like that it also provides a bit of hydration at night before I layer up on the rest of my skincare. I do have oily skin, but this has not clogged my pores or broke me out in any way. I think hydration is key when it comes to oily and acne prone skin. It washes off nicely and doesn't leave a film on my face so I would recommend this cleanser.

Where has this been my whole life?

I saw suggestions to use this on a subreddit I follow, and I decided to give it a shot. I had been using Simple Hydro Boost Gel Face Cleanser, which was fairly gentle, but still left me dry. I thought I just had a super dry face. That is, until I tried this. It almost feels like lotion in consistency (smells like plain lotion), but leaves my skin feeling clean, soft, and hydrated. It doesn't feel greasy, and it doesn't irritate me at all! In fact, I don't actually have to moisturize after using this. Of course, I still use moisturizer, but I need less than half the amount I was using before.

Not every product is going to work for everyone, but this should definitely be next to try for anyone with dry, irritated, sensitive and/or damaged skin. It has all 3 of the most important ceramides, which helps your skin heal, and hyaluronic acid, which keeps the moisture where it belongs, in your skin.

One other thing to note, when I use my konjac sponge to gently exfoliate, I find there's almost nothing to rinse off after gently scrubbing for a min or more.
