I've been all about skincare this year and this has been one of my best discoveries. It does what it says and balances PH levels, my oily areas are less oily and my dry areas are more hydrated.
Also theres an amazing improvement in the clarity of my skin thanks to this baby. This works really nicely paired with my new clarisonic Mia 2
I love this cleanser. Before I started using this, I was using the Kate Somerville line for acne prone skin. That line hasd dried out my skin so horribly that it began to break me out really harshly and made my skin start peeling. It was recommended that I switch over to this cleanser instead. I think that was the best decision I have ever made for my skin. It not only bought the glow back to my face, but it also cleanses without drying out my skin. After two days, I began to see a difference in my skin. I use it with my Clarisonic and although it says to apply it on dry skin, I do use my Clarisonic with it. What I do is, I apply it in a circular motion all over my face, wet my Clarisonic brush and start working it in a circular motion on my face with the Clarisonic. This formula doesn't foam up like other cleansers. Instead, it's more a milky-gel consistency, which is something I do like because it is less messy to clean off.
Creamy, Non-Drying, Acne Cleanser
I absolutely love this product. I think I tried about every acne cleanser there is and then I used this and forget it, my skin was clear after a couple of weeks! I will warn you though, it has an awkward smell but I feel like that's worth it, since you're skin will be clear, it's not intolerable. Also, this should not be used as a makeup remover, a lot of people believe that because it's a cleanser you can use it to take off your eye makeup. Absolutely not! What I like to do was use my Pond's cold cream to remove my makeup and then put this cleanser on my Clarisonic brush and let it do the work. It's a wonderful product!
Incredibly harsh on my skin.
I had high hopes for this product because the woman at the Sephora store that recommended it had beautiful skin. But once I got around to finally using it, it broke me out like crazy. WARNING: It has a weird consistency. Not that it's a bad thing. It's just not like your traditional foamy, sudsy kind of face wash. On the directions it tells you to "Apply to dry skin and rub gently in a circular motion." Yeah, that doesn't work for me. I have a Clarisonic brush and it didn't work well together. I use the sensitive brush head and it's still way too harsh when combined with this DERMAdoctor face wash. Along with the big pimples it gave me, my skin had scabbed up in spots, as well. I don't even know how that happened. All in all, I would NOT recommend this to anyone.
