Love this gentle cleaner! I have been buying this for over one year and it's really helped my skin stay clean but not tight or dry!! The price is awesome it lasts me a long time ! One thing I would say is that the container does leak so I store it upside in my shower shelf otherwise it makes a mess! But outside of that this one is a keeper for acne prone or even regular skin types!

This product is my holy grail cleanser. I have combination-acne-prone skin and get white and blackheads and occasional fungal acne. The medical strength salicylic acid keeps my breakouts at bay and my skin immediately feels softer and smoother. If you have dry skin, I would recommend using this once a day or moisturizing right after use.

I absolutely love this product. My acne was really bad in 2019 and in the beginning of 2020, I was recommended La roche-posay’s acne line of products. After using this cleanser religiously for 3 years, I can say this product has helped me so much with my acne healing journey. Anytime I switch to a different cleanser, I always come back to this one. I have repurchased countless times and will continue to put my money towards these products. The price can get expensive, but it’s worth the investment! 10/10 product.

I struggle with spurts of hormonal cystic acne. i started using this and it helped a lot! i would still get breaks out here and there but it was fewer with this wash and they didn’t last as long. however, i will say after using it for an extended period of time my face would get dry and i think my skin got used to it because it stopped working for me after a while. i think it’s definitely a wash to use but take breaks with!
