ONLY non foaming cleanser i’ll ever use...i just completed my first year of college for esthetics which was where i was introduced to this product. there were a few samples of it in the dermalogica kit i received for my facial classes, decided to try it out and loved it so much i ended up using all the samples on myself. i was a little hesitant to purchase the full size of this cleanser as i have oily skin and typically only like to use foaming cleansers, but i’m so glad i did and this is probably now one of my favourite cleansers. it’s so great for removing excess oil without leaving the skin dehydrated or feeling too dry and gives that “squeaky clean” feeling that i get and love from most foaming cleansers. can’t recommend this product enough, absolute game changer for oily skin !!...This is the first cleanser that has helped with my hormonal acne. I still get small pimples every now and then but after 1 month of use I haven’t received a cystic breakout.
