combination None
clean feeling

I have been using this product for years, I have a combination skin with sometimes an oily forehead, nose and chin during period. perfect for oily skin, and a very clean feeling nothing irritating about this product but a mild dry pulling feeling which is perfect before u put your serum or moisturizer so it can really absorb into the skin.

meh

i mean it gentle i guess but after one month of using it my oily areas started to get more oily, i have combo skin. plus it has sulfates in it so that might be why i am producing more oil and it really doesn't have that much ingredients to cure acne since it's targeted to people with acne.

combination PIHAcneBlackheads+ 3
Good, but..

Good cleanser for every day use, although it can be too stripping, so beware if you have dry or sensitive skin. A major plus is that it does not trigger fungal acne. I really saw that my skin was less oily after maybe 3 weeks using this, I also saw that I had less big pimples and whiteheads.
