combination AcneRosaceaSensitive+ 1
Foarte bun

It is a product suitable for my skin type, it is mildly acne-prone.

I like how the product cleans all the residues on the face and how the skin stays after I use it

I recommend it and I'm happy with how it does its job, I also like that it cleans the face very well after a make-up

combination AcneRosaceaBlackheads+ 4
okay product

I've been using this cleanser for quite a few months now and overall it's been an okay product for me. On the good side, it did help control my breakouts a bit better (but didn't stop them at all), and the oily sides of my face got a lot better. But the bad side was definitely the drying effects this cleanser had on my cheeks. With my combination skin, it sure got my oily t zone under control, but my dry cheeks got a lot dryer than before, so it's definitely not suitable for people with dry skin. I also noticed that the redness on my face got slightly worse, but nothing too extreme.
I won't be repurchasing it, since I'm pretty sure there are better cleansers out there.
