Gentle But...
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), Acne, Large Pores, Sensitive Skin, Dehydrated Skin, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

PROS: It contains scrubs that isn’t abrasive and melts quickly. It cleanses your face without drying it out.

CONS: I’ve been using the Althea Contour Cleanser for almost a month now without any bad reaction, I'm bothered with its long-term use because it contains a bunch of ingredients that rated badly here in skincarisma which are bad for oily, sensitive, and acne-prone skin types.
