One of the best basics ime

Vanicream cleanser //
Your soothing foaming texture //
Will never drain me //

(if only cleaning our faces didn't drain our water bill.)

I found that this worked much better when I was a teenager. While it's still ideal for my super sensitive skin and has the added bonus of some evening tone, it doesn't control my hormonal flareups as much these days. A permanent breakup may be imminent, but hey, it gets the job done with it's silken smooth and soothing lather. I can't complain much. I try other things after having my fill of this, but end up coming back to this old friend.

normal PIHAcneSensitive+ 2
One of my morning cleansers

This is a really good cleanser. It is not moisturizing, but it is gentle. My HG night cleanser is the vanicream bar. The bar is actually a low ph cleanser. This one i do well with occasionally but i cant use it daily bc it is too alkaline & i end up being really itchy. But i save it to use when my skin is not sensitive or more oily (i am normal sometimes dry/dehydrated)

combination PIHAcneFungal+ 3
Made my fungal acne and bumps flare up after two days

I have very sensitive skin, tiny fungal acne bumps on my forehead, and a few red bumps on my cheek.

Every cleanser I ever use breaks me out, the only things that have not are simple micellar water and DICKINSONS witch hazel.

I used witch hazel as a cleanser for a long time and it works great but after a year my skin started to get texture and bot feel as clean despite using chemical exfoliants like normal.

I decided I would try this cleanser in hopes that my skin would feel cleaner, but it did not. My forehead was not really flaring up but it did using this product for two days, and I even got a pimple on my eyebrow. The bumps on my left cheek was starting to go down, but got super big, red and itchy with this. More bumps around it as well.

However, the right side of my face, which is normal, and my oily nose did not react at all. I think under normal conditions this would be a good product, it just did not work well for my skin unfortunately.
