combination PIHRosaceaAnti-Aging+ 4
the dermatologist recommended it to me

I think it is a good gel, in the sense that you feel that it cleans you ... I wear an eyelash mask every day and that residue does not remove them, after using the gel I have to use yes or yes micellar water and it keeps coming out dirt. As a detail every time I go to the gym I wash my face with the gel and leave my skin tight. My skin is mixed, so I don't want to imagine what it does to dry skin.

Very gentle

I like it, because it is a gentle cleansing gel. I use it in the morning and in the evening and haven't had any irritation. Also i use it to double cleanse to remove any makeup, which is working also quite well. Sadly it contains sulfates, but besides that it's a good product.

combination AcneRosaceaAnti-Aging+ 3
Very good but not perfect

I have used this for years to wash my face twice a day. Effective in cleaning my face even when I'm wearing makeup without exacerbating my skin condition. I love that it has minimal ingredients, and to me, no overpowering smell. No acne breakouts and no rosacea flare ups. Sometimes however I feel it is a bit over-drying if I don't follow washing with some kind of moisturizer. This is probably due to the sulfates it contains. I believe it would work best for oily and acne prone skin. Also great for combination skin if you don't have any sensitivity. For my combination skin with rosacea, I'm still searching for something sulfate free. All in all very good product that could be improved upon.
