This cleanser is the first that I've found to actually do what is says. The cleanser is effective enough to wash away excess oil but is also gentle enough as to not leave the face dry or tight opposed to other face cleansers that are either too gentle for acne or waaay too drying and harsh for the skin barrier. Because of this balance in the cleansers formulation I am witnessing aclearer complexion in my skin while keeping my skin's hydration. I took away a star because 4oz is too small for the price of $40. The cleanser will not last very long and you do need to pump more than once to cover the entire face so it's safe to say the product is going to run out quick. Maybe consider changing the bottle to a 6oz instead of 4. A 6oz cleanser for for the price of $40(with shipping) seems easier to swallow than a 4oz cleanser.
