I live in the tropics and have an combo to oily skin. So it kinda balences things out on my skin in that, if it is 'drying' then it works well on my skin and leaves it matte. However, when I bought this, and began to use it when I got home, in my country, I was surprised to see it wasn't sealed and it was half empty. Meaning that in a coupla weeks, it would be finished. I previously purchased the general cleanser and this last me for months until it's time for me to travel and purchase another. For this reason, I won't be buying this product again. I also checked other reviews on other sites to see if it was just me who experienced the half emptiness but sad to see that it was not!
