Best cleanser I've ever used

This is an amazing one at a totally affordable price. It doesn't foam up like crazy, it's not extremely drying and your face doesn't feel tight after washing. The ceramides are great for protecting the skin barrier and the niacinamide does somewhat help with the sebum production. In order to get the most out of it, you can leave it on your face for 30s or so before washing it off(although if you're looking to treat a specific skin concern, a cleanser won't do that much for you). It works well in winter as well, with a good moisturiser. It never irritated my face and it never broke me out.
I've also noticed that only using it at night might be better for when your skin is drier(winter) or for people who aren't naturally super oily, like me.

NOT malassezia safe!

I bought the travel size version of this and tried it just once a couple years ago. For context, I've had sebderm for roughly 15 years now, mainly on my scalp and ears. This cleanser made my whole eyebrow area flare up like crazy in the span of 10 minutes, with a gazillion of flakes forming super fast. I was scared shitless and immediately trashed it. Do NOT buy if you're looking for a malassezia-safe product!

Too drying

I second the review by amnjy (a rather thorough 3 star review). I too have a dry combination skin and the product has really dried it out. It's particularly bad at the tip of my nose, where it literally causes my skin to flake a bit. I also had some really bad irritation just above my lip, to the point of it actually hurting. Not sure if I drank anything that I might've been allergic to or something ,but it's rather strange that this happened just when I started using this product.

Really wanted to love it, but guess it's not for me. That doesn't mean it won't work for you if you're reading this, but if your skin is prone to drying out, maybe try something else first.
