Decent cleanser for acne-prone skin
Reviewed
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Rosacea, Sensitive Skin

I was pleasantly surprised by this gel wash cleanser. It is refreshing and somewhat gentle on my sensitive skin, it cleans oil and dirty thoroughly and effectively. I use after I remove my makeup with micellar water so I cannot give my opinion about its makeup removing power. Nevertheless, I wouldn't recommend using it in the eyes. It has neutral pH, which is the maximum pH I would personally recommend to use on the skin since higher pH levels can be aggressive to the natural skin barrier.
It doesn't leave any dryness or rashes and that is a great sign for someone who has really sensitive skin. On the other hand, I didn't see any improvement in the amount of redness and imperfections, but I can say that they didn't get any worse either. I would classify this cleanser as average.
Out of all products of the same line this was the most effective and I would recommend it if you are looking for a cleanser for acne-prone skin on a budget.
