combination AcneBlackheadsSensitive
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.

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.
