I've been a hard time finding a second cleanser that doesn't dry out my skin and the ones I used previously left my face with that tight, dry, and itchy feeling. I bought a travel size of this cleanser recently. This was so gentle and left me with a clean, refreshed, and balanced feel on my skin afterwards. I did not get any of the previous dry itchy feeling. Wasn't expecting much from this but honestly gets raves from me!
