Top 5%...Love it...I've dry, sensitive, and sometimes acne prone skin, and most cleansers that clean my face enough to keep breakouts to a minimum also dry it out, strip it of any natural oils, make it red and sometimes burn....My only complaints are that it's a little pricey (while a little goes a long way, and one bottle lasts me approximately half a year, $26 is still a lot to pay for face wash) and that while the packaging is nice, it'sn't recyclable... which sort of defeats the purpose of buying a more eco-friendly beauty product.
