    I use this product as a cleanser. I use it twice a day - morning and night. It cleans my skin really well. I know this for a fact because I've used it once to wash my brushes and it washed all the dirt out so well. It did not damage my brushes, so this product is really gentle. I have oily skin, and it cleans my skin so well without drying it, leaving me with a clean and fresh sensation. How I've started using this product? My dermatologist advised this brand of products to me since I have oily and very sensitive skin with acne. So it is perfect for you if you do have the same type of skin. I have nothing bad to say about this product, and I will probably continue to use it as long as the brand still carry it.

    Bought a tube to try it out. It's great for a quick clean. But I don't find that it leaves my skin particularly healthier or brighter looking/feeling. It's just ...OK. I think I'll go back to my Collective Well-Being line of products as my "cheap-daytime" cleanser. They are cheaper and work better, at least for me (Combo-Sensitive skin)

      Unnecessary in a.m., but great at the end of the day for a good cleaning w/o stripping. Clean after feeling.

        Recommended by my dermatologist as a daily cleanser to use while I am also using a topical retinoid product for rosacea. I use this twice daily and love it. My first tube lasted somewhere between 4-6 months-- I use a very small amount because it will lather up, so even though it is pretty expensive I have found it to have a good value in the end!

          Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel, 6.76 fl oz:

          I have been searching high and low for a good face wash. My skin is temperamental and breaks out easily. I have acne scars from past flare ups and my skin tone in general is not even nor clear. I've tried everything from drugstore to high end (Chanel face wash, even), the Clarisonic system (even the most sensitive brush head was too rough for my skin) and nothing worked. Except for this. It is a little pricey, but the results are SO well worth it.

            I have a very reactive Skin and was looking for a gentle product to replace soap. Most products that say 'for Sensitive skin' don't mention that they might be too harsh on some skin types. Glad I purchased this!

              I was looking for a simple cleanser that works well but isn't too drying. This cleanser left my skin super dry and itchy even after I applied moisturizer. It's also heavily frangranced which I didn't like. I tried used it twice before eventually tossing it. What a waste of money .

                Not a strong facial cleanser, meant to be gentle but why the heavy scent?? I love this product line but I wish they would drop the fragrance, it is really not needed and makes you feel like you are slathering your face in chemicals. Some of their other products that I use are virtually fragrance free, so I was not expecting this. Kind of a bummer.

                    I always remove my make-up first, then work up the gel into a nice lather and work it into my skin.

                          This cleanser is very gentle on my skin and yet effective at removing oil & dirt without leaving my skin feeling tight. Very pleasant scent. I also use it to wash my make up brushes and it truly does a great job at removing all the residue and oil build up on the bristles; better than my old makeup brush shampoo I used to use. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the resullt.
