Great cleanser, wish it didn't have menthol

I use this every night after double cleansing and it works great, even on my body. I just hope they'd remove the menthol because it's a bit irritating sometimes.

Impressive

This cleanser is a sweet treat for acne-prone skin peeps. Salicylic acid is best used in cleanser from, so I've been told, and I would always prefer La Roche-Posay products given their reputation. From my two weeks of use, this cleanser can be a little drying, so I am using it with a different moisturizer in the mornings, and Biossance rose oil + benzoyl peroxide treatment gel at night.

Great!

Great cleanser, the price is great and it is soothing for a salicylic cleanser. My oily skin feels very clean but not dehydrated or tight after using this. I will repurchase this cleanser.

Refreshing face wash

I get flare ups of acne in the summer months due to excess oil. This is a great face wash, cleanses without drying out your skin. Price is fantastic give the quality. Highly recommend.

Love this cleanser!

I have oily acne prone skin, and this gel formula face wash does a wonderful job at removing dirt and makeup and leaving my skin acne free and feeling great. Wish it came in a pump!

Excellent cleanser

I use this a couple of times a week to keep breakouts at bay. Never leaves my normal-dry skin feeling stripped. Lovely cooling sensation from the menthol. Great salicylic acid cleanser!

Works well to control acne

Bought this for my daughter to control her hormonal acne. It works well, and its fragrance free too :)

Works as well as more expensive brand

I bought this product for my teenage daughter to replace a much more expensive product in an acne trio. She says it works almost as well as the other one and is 1/4 the price. I think we will alternate between the two.

"So Far So Good"

Pro's: Great cleanser for adult combination, acne prone skin. My skin did not dry out, nor was it irritated from use. A little bit of cleanser goes a long way. Con: Be careful when opening the container the product will "spill out". I have not used this product long enough to determine the long term effectiveness of it in combating acne.

Works

Bought this when Obagi Clenziderm was on back order. It does its job and you get a lot of product for your money.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser

Using La Roche-Posay Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser is an effective way for me to help control light breakouts on my face while removing the oil from my oily skin. As with the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Deep Cleansing Foaming Cream that I use, it only takes a little to clean your face so one tube lasts a long time. If I had a complaint about the Gel Cleanser, it would be that I wished it foamed up a little more when scrubbing. I guess I'm a little jaded by the Deep Cleaning Foaming Cream which I love.

Great cleanser for acne prone skin

I'm using Retin-A every night for my acne. I use this only in the morning as salicylic acid shouldn't be used at the same time as Retin-A. It's a basic formulation, but this is all I'm looking for, it mildly exfoliate as it cleanses. Not to mention the bottle is very large, I use this both on my face and on my back.

Very pleased

Even as an adult, I still seem to be dealing with a random breakout all too often. I started using this face wash, and I really like it. Since I only get a breakout every now and then, it’s hard to judge its effectiveness. However, I stopped using this product for a little while, and I noticed more breakouts. I quickly started back with it, and since then, I use it all the time. Very pleased with this face wash, and the price is great too.

Great product

Cleanses well and contains 2% salicylic acid, which the internet says is good for unclogging pores. Seems to be working better than my previous cleanser.

Gentle yet cleansing

I have sensitive skin in addition to breakouts at 60. I thought those days were over. This item cleanses my skin, removes makeup and makes my skin feel good. I use it at night before my moisturizer. So far, I haven't had a bad reaction, something that worries me since my skin is sensitive and trying a new product is an experiment. I like this product and will purchase again. The price is reasonable as well. Thanks!

Little too dry for me.

I am in my late 20s. I have combination skin with some rosacea. This product dried me out a little. It didn't work for my skin.
