Bought this for my wife.The gel texture of this face wash was perfect for her oily facial skin.It cleansed well and at the same time it was gentle(not over drying).It is decently priced as well.I would recommend this product for those with oily skin.

Bought this cleanser for this upcoming summer as my skin tends to be more oily in summer time. I've tried other foaming cleansers from this brand and they were very satisfying. Hope this one does what it meant to do, too. The great price got even better with the discount coupon. Loving it!!!

Nice product, esp. for acne prone skin. I use in combination with Astringent lotion every second day since my skin feels a bit dehydrated if I use it on a daily basis.

This is a great gentle cleanser for skin that's prone to breakouts and on the oily side. I started using in combination with other products in the Effaclar range and they work great together. I alternate between this and an even more gentle, non-foaming cleanser to avoid stripping too much of my skin's natural oils. A little goes a long way.

This cleanser is a great face wash to use everyday, it removes excess oil and doesn't cause irritation to my sensitive oily skin. You only need a pea sized amount to wash your whole face as it lathers up quite a lot. I have had the same bottle for months and it is still going strong, well worth the price.

This is a great cleanser for people with oily or combination skin. It doesn't strip your skin of oils and cleanses well. However if your skin is already a bit dry or it's wintertime, it may be a little too drying.
You only need to use a little (just a drop) to clean your whole face.

I have been using this product on and off for about 10 years. Out of convenience I strayed every now and then and used products widely available in supermarkets and pharmacies but I just keep coming back to this, because it is the best cleansing gel for my sensitive and oily skin. This clear gel has a very subtle "clean" smell to it which I don't mind at all. It does go a long way because it foams up nicely without needing to use a lot of it, is both easy to apply and to rinse off. I love that it leaves my face feeling clean and fresh without drying it out too much.

As mentioned on The Cosmetics Collective
Face Cleanser 101. There's One for Every Skin Type
Oily Skin

Those with oily skin should stick to non-comedogenic ingredients, meaning those that won't clog your pores. An entirely oil-free cleanser may seem like a good idea but using an excessively drying product may actually be counter-intuitive. Sometimes oily skins are a result of your complexion making up for its lost natural moisture. When a cleanser is too drying, it can trigger greater oil production - which is the opposite of what you need! The La Roche Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel is perfect for oily skin types. As a soap-free purifying cleanser it contains cleansing agents that are safe for sensitive skin as well. This face cleanser comes loaded with Zinc and Glycacil that further help to remove dirt and excess sebum.
