La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Cleansing Gel 200ml
I don't particularly have oily skin except maybe in the summer when my T-zone can go a little shinier than usual. However, I do have slightly sensitive skin.
So your probably wondering why I would purchase the La Roche Posay Foaming Cleanser for oily and sensitive skin. The answer is simple - the husband. He unfortunately suffers from oily, spot prone skin and usually I buy him the Dr Nick Lowe Foaming Cleanser for blemish prone skin. However, I find it a little drying on my sensitive skin, so as we are soon to be going on our 2 week holiday, it seemed to make sense to buy one facial wash we could both share.
Having used the La Roche Posay gel cleanser previously and just used the last of it, I knew how wonderful their products are.
The tube is huge, and jam full of product. It's an opaque colour, which foams up into a luxurious facial wash.
Face products aimed towards the oily skin market are normally extremely drying on the skin. This facial wash contains no soap, no colourants and no alcohol at all, so keeps the skin feeling 'normal'.
It also is PH5.5, which is apparently the skins PH.
My husband loves it as it doesn't dry his skin out, it actually seems to make his skin feel hydrated. He isn't experiencing any breakouts since using it either.
My experience with the face wash is great too. I can even remove a full face of make-up - even mascara- with this wash no problem at all. It removes every last bit. My skin can vary from day to day, this wash does not cause any problems at all.
I would highly recommend this facial wash to all skin types.

I bought this in the hope that it'll clear my skin as summer made my face extra oily and I started to have break outs. This comes as a clear gel and all you need is a small amount (size of 5p) and then foam it in your palms and massage it onto your face. I really loved how it felt as it felt kinda luxurious! It made my face really clean without stripping away the oils, all traces of make up is removed and my skin feels clean and fresh. Since using this I've noticed that my skin has been clearer, but I don't know whether it's solely because of this product or a combination of others (I'm was using effaclar toner and la roche posay moisturiser amongst other things). Every now and then I get a spot but I do have to say that my skin has improved :) I'd recommend this product as 200mls will honestly last you a long time and it's great for sensitive skin too.

Excellent for great price
Over years I have been using dozens of different facial cleansers gradually moving towards more expensive ones. I love this product and I agree 100% with other reviews. I found it even better than Avene gel which I believe has reached a near price by now but found it heavier and less gentle with my skin. It's a very good price for excellent quality and it lasts for a very long time.
