In Love...love it...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)....After unexpectedly battling acne in my late 20s - after going through high school and college mostly okay - I had tried a variety of products,facials, and a couple of visits to a dermatologist.

In LOVE...so good...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....Just a general note, everyone who is saying they take their make up off (eyes and all) with a corrective cleanser needs to remove their make up with a make up remover before they cleanse their face otherwise the product isn't going to work.

best !...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....It also seems to remove makeup well, so that's good... Basically, if you're looking for a cleanser that's relatively inexpensive, cleans well, and doesn't kill your sensitive skin, I would give this a try... but I would try and remove at least your eye makeup before using it, it does a poor job of breaking down mascara.
