I have combination skin, dry at the edges and oily in the middle. The oiliness means I definitely look for a gentle but thorough cleanser, and this definitely does the job. I notice that my skin is incredibly soft after use, but does not feel stripped the way some cleansers have left it in the past. I have noticed it also doesn’t irritate my breakouts and does help clear them up. This also unclogs the pores in my nose really well. I’m on my third bottle and will repurchase once this one is done.
