I use this cleanser every night before bed - it suds up nicely, removes most all of my make up, and prevents outbreaks. I follow it up with the PTR Un-Wrinkle Pads to remove any excess make-up and further clean my pores. In the morning, I merely splash with warm, then cold water. I've been doing this for 2 years and it is the only regiment that has worked. I had been using an expensive Dermatologist prescribed regiment (it worked well, but dried up my skin and my bank account) and spent several months trying to find an OTC replacement. This is it!
