This is by far the best cleanser I have try (and I have try many!) is very effective, you can really feel your skin clean after using it. Is not harsh at all but if you don't have oily/combination skin it may be drying.I use it twice a day (morning and evening), I even use this product on the same days that I get my Salicylic Acid Peel 20% and is not irritating at all, wonderful product.Is an amazing price-value product. It performs way better than my Estee Lauder and Clinique cleansers.If you have oily skin give it a try! You will not be disappointed :)

I noticed almost as soon as I started using this cleanser that the "orange peel" texture on parts of my face diminished greatly. Quelle surprise! I haven't had any stand-out favorite cleansers, but this one actually made a difference. I definitely recommend it.It does have a weird smell, but the smell does NOT last on your skin. And I've grown not to mind it because the product is so effective.After twice daily use for a couple of weeks, my skin has gotten a bit dry. I plan to alternate between this and Aubrey's green tea clay masque(it works nicely as a non-drying cleanser). I will definitely keep this cleanser in my arsenal.I bought it because it was recommended for my OSPW skin type on Dr. Baumann's site. I redid the questionnaire and found that I am DSPW, not OSPW. Based on my experience with this cleanser, I have a good feeling about her recommendations.My skincare concerns are hyperpigmentation, dullness, uneven skin texture, blackheads, sensitivity, and, once a month, pimples.
Effaclar is a lightly foaming gel cleanser that rinses easily and leaves my face feeling refreshed and soft. I use it on my eyes with no problems at all. It removes regular makeup well, and it never stings or strips skin of moisture. The only negative to this product is that it contains fragrance, and I don't like the way it smells. The fragrance doesn't irritate my skin, but the scent reminds me of camphor, and it's unpleasant. I like products with a fresh-smelling added fragrance, but I prefer facial products with no fragrance added. It's not allergy-related, I just can't stand catching whiffs of my face all throughout the day. I smell the face wash only as I wash my face, and the odor does not seem to linger on my skin. Overall Effaclar is an excellent, basic cleanser that's mild, yet effective.
I have a very oily t-zone with occasional dryness on my cheeks. This cleanser is my FAVORITE. It foams up and gets my skin super clean without drying it out. Will never buy another cleanser again. Also, very cost effective because you only need a tiny pea size amount due to how much it foams up. Try using the Effaclar K moisturizer after cleansing once or twice a day. These 2 products combined keep my mild acne and excessive oiliness completely under control. LOVE La Roche-Posay!
As others have mentioned, this is a great cleanser for oily or combination skin. It rinses away very cleanly, yet doesn't leave your face feeling tight. You can get a good lather from less than a pea-sized amount, too, so you get your money's worth (I use it 2x per day, and a tube lasts me about five months).
foaming cleanser makes me feel a really deep cleaning, but it'a a little bit too drying for the skin, better not to use in the morning
Am 54 years old with combination skin.This is one of the few good cleansersI consistently use. Other is Obagi.
This stuff smells GREAT, but it doesn't seem to remove all of my make-up all of the time. It can also leave my face still feeling a little oily, so I tend to use it in dry weather.
I have tried all products, and I'm in my forties. This really works. My pores look greatly reduced. And my face positively glows
A little goes a long way. However, nothing special about this cleanser. Saw no improvement in my skin with this cleanser.
