I have been fighting with my skin for years. I started using this cleanser every day 8 months ago (still on my first tube!) and within 2 weeks my skin cleared up and started to actually feel clean when I washed it. My skin was so even I started going to work without foundation. Three days ago, I lost my face wash and since then I have broken out and my skin feels oily. Finally found it and will never misplace it again! This cleanser is so wonderful!
