Good cleanser but it have too basic ingredients.

It was okay. I think it does cleanse my skin, but not deep enough. It does lessen my acne but I still have breakouts but not as often. This product is suitable to those who want to start to treat their skin (for those who have really bad skin like me). But you need to switch to better cleanser eventually. Maybe there's an exception to those who have extremely sensitive skin.

In love with this product

It saved my skin. I have incredibly reactive-dry and combination skin. This product is been the ONE that works after trying hundreds. My skin doesn't react and has a nice hydrated feeling just after cleansing it.

LOVE IT!

I strongly recommend using it in the shower, and in order to avoid epidermal water loss, slightly dry the face with a clean towel and immediately apply a minimal ingredient moisturizer. In my case, I've been using La Roche Possay Cicaplast Baume B5. This last ingredients, as it's occlusive, maintains the hydration in the deep layers of my skin and let me have a healthy-looking and without clogged pores-skin.

The combination of this two ones is simply lovely. It's a great way to protect a reactive, acne prone skin, by cleaning it very gently, keeping the moisture, using anti-bacterial actives and getting a repairing feeling.

Irritated my skin

I thought I would give this a try since I hear a lot of people talk about it. I notice every time I washed my face with this product my skin look and felt so much worse. I would get more zits and more irritation. I thought this was suppose to be a gentle cleanser! I had to get rid of this after a week of use since it was giving me allergic reaction. After I stopped using it my skin was back to normal and looking so much better. Plus this has fragrance in the list of ingredients so not so good for people with sensitive skin. Honestly, this cleanser is not that great so much better ones out there without fragrance too! Do yourself a favor and don't waste your money on this "gentle cleanser".
