made me oilier (?)

i don't know how, but this made me oiler. i have extremely oily skin and this was my first time using this company and i heard nothing but good things. i was excited to not look so greasy. it didn't break me out or anything, but it felt more moisturizing on my skin than anything. i had to go back to my regular cleanser and use this when my face is feeling dry. it's just weird how it did the opposite for me and i spent so much money on this.

Love it!

At first i wasnt sure because the cleanser caused my acne to become worse and break out in places i didn't before. After a bit of research i chose to carry on using it with the multi toner and active moist. One month later i am acne free! I do still have the marks but they seem to be fading and the occasional spot does arise but not as bad as they were.This product truly saved my skin!

I like the deep cleansing feeling after use. I use this at least once a week or when needed during those oily skin days. I recommend cleaning face wth a white face cloth.

Great on oily Skin

I have been using this product for almost 4 years, and it's great on oily skin, it makes your skin silky smooth and super fresh. It absorbs the extra shine, that comes with oily skin, and hydrates my skin to keep it balanced.

I think I have combination skin as it's not extremely oily. So will it be ok to use dermal clay cleanser once a week rather than everyday? I've already tried special cleansing gel before
