I first recieved this product as a sample, in a Birchbox, and when I used it for a couple weeks—however long it took to finish the sample—my face felt good. I purchased the full size tube, and after using it for a couple of months, my face felt tight and dry. Maybe I was just using too much? Whatever. I switched back to my regular cleanser.
I'm very picky with face wash and I was skeptical to try this. I'm so happy I did. This is so gentle and keeps my pores small and my skin clear!!
I was so excited for this sample as I am always on the look-out for an effective cleanser for sensitive skin. Unfortunately, the product disappointed immediately with nearly impossible-to-open packaging. I struggled to open in for an absurd amount of time before finally making a tiny hole in the "protective" seal with my razor. Once opened enough to force out a little cleanser, I found the smell to be truly unpleasant. I pushed on and tried it, but found that it left my skin feeling dry and tight for some time after washing. Overall this sample was disappointing - though it's possible the packaging might be different on the full size, the rest would remain the same.
If you are sensitive, try this
I have rosecea and my skin is extremely sensitive. This is a creamy, non foamy cleanser that is gentle but cleans your skin. So far I have been extremely satisfied with all of Acure products.
I have had Perioral dermatitis all of my life and EVERYTHING irritates the heck outta the skin on my face. This is the only cleanser that not only completely removes my makeup with just one application but is genlte enough not to aggrivate my delicate skin. It's the perfect cleanser!!
