In Love...It's ok...Because this doesn't foam, this is definitely NOT a makeup removing cleanser (I never tried but I would never use it to remove makeup - I am a die hard double cleanser and use a cleanser that foams nicely after my oil cleanser)....I put it on my t zone on dry skin and start massaging manually until it develops into a rich lather, and then after about a minute I use it with a wet Foreo with a focus on those areas in my t zone and less focus on my cheeks where I tend to get cystic reactions to products.

Pro MUA...In LOVE...A few months ago I bought a clarisonic Mia, and felt like with that device I was using a lot more product than I would be with a gel, so I switched to the Clarisonic acne cleanser and my face went crazy....A couple of associates have recommended I try out the Murad acne cleanser; it has a slightly lower salicylic acid content, but I'm hoping the consistency of it helps supplement that, since it's a gel-liquid type rather than a foaming one.

My fav...love !...So I was getting a lot of pores and when I walked into sephora a very instructive, pushy lady told me that in order for my skin to clear up (I already have pretty clear skin I just have some stubborn pores) that I need to get into a regimen and use a cleanser, serum THEN a moisturizer....So this cleanser evened out my skin tone (sometimes I wake up with a little redness in my cheeks, a sort of flush that I dislike), made it look even brighter- simply made it look like its best self, the cleanser is also quite reasonably priced and you get a great amount of product for your buck.

5 stars...Love it...I started using this about a month ago and would use this in the morning and the Purity cleanser at night so it can provide a smoother surface under my make up, but I found that this dried me out a little, since I already suffer from dry skin....This cleans your makeup off really well but it was a lilttle drying for me (but I do live in an extremely cold area with lots of snowy windy days) but ya it cleans and helped my clear my skin out of some of the nasty blackheads on my nose.
