    I bought this to use at night, after wearing makeup for 12+ hours. Its very effective on my oily skin type, but it is still a gentle cleanser. This is a new favorite for me.

      Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser:

      I got a sample of this with an LRP moisturizer/sunscreen and ended up loving it more than the moisturizer. I'm replacing my current face wash with a big tube of this because it's a real find. It gets all the oil off my face and leaves it clean and baby-soft and tingling pleasantly, and my acne was noticeably decreased by the third use. It's lightweight, foams nicely, and smells amazing, like fresh-cut flowers. For the price it's pretty incredible stuff.

            Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser:

            Never thought I'd be in the 30's and still battling acne and oily skin but here I am. My skin is also on the sensitive side so finding a good cleanser is very hard. I decided on this because of of the minimal ingredients and lack of glycerin which breaks my face out bad! I also wanted a good cleanser because my skin was getting dried out and irritated from Benzoyl Peroxide use. This cleanser is very gentle. My face is normally red after I wash my face and it wasn't with this one--my skin felt so smooth and calm! The only reason I took off a star is because after using this for a few weeks I started breaking out with the little tiny pimples--a sign of skin congestion which I am prone to because I wear makeup and have incredibly oily skin. I feel like because this cleanser it very gentle, it is not the most effective at eliminating all oil and makeup from the skin. I was using this day and night so I ended up switching it to just morning use and I use another cleanser at night now to effectively remove all traces of makeup and my skin has since improved. Just a warning to the ladies out there who's skin is like mine and is easily congested! I still highly recommend this though because it's perfect for those with sensitive skin or those who are suffering from the lovely drying effects from using topical acne medication!

                Comments about La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser:

                I use this product after a long day and I thought it would work after reading all the great reviews, however its not great. I have combination skin with big pores. I am 24. This dries out my skin and does not help with the pores. My skin did not react badly but, I felt like it did not do anything to help. Its a big bottle so it last a while. It is a bit pricy and now have to find something else.
