This white, foamy cleanser deep cleanses my skin, leaving it feeling very fresh, impeccably clean and looking a little brighter. I like to use this cleanser with a sonic cleansing brush rather than just my hands, it keeps the cleanser on my skin longer, letting the Glycolic Acid really work it's magic.

I have insanely dry skin and I can't use this cleanser every day. I use it to power my skin clean after I wear especially heavy face makeup, such as when I have to pile a lot of concealer on to cover redness. I also like this cleanser for deep cleaning before I exfoliate and do deep moisturizing masque treatments. If you are less dry than I am, with not too sensitive oily, combo, normal to somewhat dry skin, I belive that this cleanser would be gorgeous for you for every day use.
