Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant cleanser I started using this cleanser when I saw it recommended by a dermatologist to help with adult onset acne. I won’t use anything else now, it’s amazing stuff and has really helped my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only cleanser I’ll ever buy After suffering with cystic acne for a few months last year, I switched my cleanser to this. It’s been amazing for my skin and has helped clear up my acne! Such a gentle cleanser, my skin never feels dry and tight afterwards, it feels hydrated!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I have acne prone, sensitive skin and this cleanser has calmed my irritated and red skin down dramatically. It's gentle to use daily and I have noticed a considerable difference in my skin texture since using it for the past month.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effective cleanser for sensitive skin I like this product. It is has become of a bit of a go to for me as it really lifts make-up / foundation from skin and you feel it's really doing the job. There is no fragrance but i like that actually. A little goes a long way and the pump is a good way of ensuring you don't use too much. What it doesn't do is really lift heavy mascara so I've had to occasionally give the corners of my eyes a going over - it will get to work on other make-ups though. I'd also advise following the instructions on the back of the bottle so wet hands and wet face for about 60 seconds. It hasn't made me break out at all and It works on my sensitive sensitive skin really effectively. I'd highly recommend this cleanser.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice texture I bought this last week after an extensive search for a cleanser suitable for oily/acneic skin without salycic acid (nearly every drugstore acne product has it but it doesn't agree with me), that doesn't foam. I decided on this and was a little disappointed to see that it has SLS considering it doesn't foam but went ahead anyway. The texture is soft, a bit slippery but does clean deeply if you remove make up prior and double cleanse. It's supposed to be gentle but I forgot to repurchase my usual makeup remover and so cleaned my face with the Effaclar H three times and my face got quite irritated and dry (my fault). So it's not an amazing makeup remover but the niacinamide is a good active ingredient for fighting congestion and my skin is noticeably brighter. I will continue to use this and hopefully continue to see improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this!! Such a good facial cleanser. Leaves skin moisturised and not with that horrible tight feeling that some face washes can leave. I love La Roche-Posay so knew I had to try this as I typically have quite dry skin. I use this in the morning before I apply my moisturiser and it just makes the world of difference. A real bargain so definitely recommend purchasing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and doesn't clog pores I suffer with oily and combination skin but since taking up rigorous cleansing, toning and moisturing with LRP products I have noticed a huge difference in the appearance of my skin. Perhaps it's because simply washing my face wasn't getting all the gunk off but this product is cheap and easy to fit into my new routine. Would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended by Harley Street dermatologist I was advised to buy this by my Harley Street cosmetic dermatologist. Having tried many cleansers (including many pricey ones) for my acne prone skin, this is the best cleanser I have used. It removes all my make up and does not irritate my skin! Great product. I have already recommended to my friends!
