This is the best cleanser I ever use. I have moderate acne and sensitve skin.I have use just about every cleanser that was made for sensitive skin nothing seemed to work.My face will feel irritated and I would start scratching it which would make my face get worse.After washing my face with this cleanser my face did not irritate me at all and within a week I saw improvement to my face.I have less redness and my acne is clearing up.
