I have oily acne prone skin, especially on my chin and sometimes on my cheeks. After experimenting on every product out there--not to mention going on antibiotics and prescriptions for topical agents from my dermo--I think I have found the winning combo. This cleanser is gentle, refreshing, and easy to use (no need to use cloths or exfoliating brushes). My skin is soft, happy, and calm from the moment I use this product. After using such abrasive treatments, such as ProActiv, my skin is thrilled to be treated with such a gentle cleanser. And special note: ProActiv broke me out--horribly so--and within a few days, this cleanser cleared my skin.
I also love that it is paraben free.
For customers who are reading my review and nodding their heads at my skin woes, I also suggest using Somme products. I cleanse with Effaclar and then use Somme's transport pads, Vitamin C serum, and A-Bomb. The result is acne free, glowing, healthy skin.

Effaclar Gel Cleanser-Super Clean
-February 1, 2011
I purchased this product after reading the reviews. I love it. It is such a gentle cleanser that I actually look forward to washing my face now. I find that it takes off my eye make up easily as long as I don't have a thick coat of mascara on. Otherwise it takes a bit more washing or an eye makeup remover (I choose to just wash more). I have always had great skin, but after having children I've had breakout areas around my mouth, chin and on my forehead. After using this product for about a week, I noticed my skin looking clearer and feeling better. This product is well worth the money!
