This cleanser is very gentle. I have acne and it does not irritate or exacerbate the breakouts and clusters. It takes makeup away pretty well, but if you use a heavy primer, you may need to either pre-rinse or wash twice. A pea sized amount usually gets the job done. It's popped in my eyes (a few times), and surprisingly it it did not burn my eyes. I agree with the statement of this product being "just right." I have normal skin any other time but winter, as it tends to be drier. However, it did not make my skin drier. After washing my skins feels soft and clean. It's definitely worth trying regardless of your skin type.
