Andalou Naturals Creamy Cleanser For Combination Skin Meyer Lemon -- 6 fl oz
Not my favorite
This product was extremely drying on my oily skin it reminded me of of the clean and clear products I used to use in high school...no good. I originally got it to use with my konjac sponge but this product really didn't work for me.

A good cleanser but only for oily skin
I consider myself a combination to oily skin type which is why I was drawn to this cleanser. It smells great but was too drying for me. After using it for a few days, I was surprised to see that I had developed two large dry patches on either side of my chin. I really wanted this cleanser to work for me because of its brightening properties but I had to stop using it. I switched to the Andalou cleansing milk which works so well for me.
If you are oily, dive in, if not, try the cleansing milk.

Great Ingredients, OK Results
This product has such a wonderful ingredients list - the major ingredients are aloe vera leaf juice (which has wonderful healing and moisturizing qualities), sunflower oil (which is not comedogenic and is packed with vitamin E, which is a great emollient and antioxidant) and manuka honey (which is both antibacterial and gentle/moisturizing). It also contains really great healing ingredients for acne (sea buckthorn oil, rosehip oils, ylangylang oils) as well as other antioxidants like Vitamin C that help with scarring. I think this is one of the best and most gentle products you can find for sensitive, combination skin with acne or coloration problems. It cleanses, but does not strip your skin in any way; it has ingredients that actively work to heal and moisturize your skin.
Although I do love it, this product has not remarkably improved my skin in anyway - I do still get breakouts - however, with the right combination of other products and lifestyle choices I'm positive that this cleanser could be a great component to achieving overall healthy skin.
My skincare routine for combination, acne-prone skin with this product (which I use only at NIGHT; in the mornings I just use manuka honey as a cleanser):
First, I take off my makeup using argan oil wipes and eye-makeup remover. Then, I jump in the shower and use this product with a dr. sponge in small circular motions for 30 seconds. After finishing my shower and drying off, I balance my skin pH with a rosewater toner (which is both anti-bacterial and moisturizing) and I follow up with argan oil as a moisturizer. Finally, I use a 2% salicylic acid treatment for my acne and acne scars.

I love this product because it is so gentle on my sensitive skin. It has a nice, fresh smell to it so I enjoy using it in the mornings. I have noticed that my dark spots/ acne scars have lightened significantly. I have oily skin and this product still works great!

Not for me
I did my research on organic facial cleansers and finally came to the conclusion that this one would be best! However, once I started using it, my face had never been so dry in my entire life! I stopped using it immediately and it took my face a couple of weeks to recover from the dryness. However, one good thing about it is that it smells wonderful; a nice citrus honey scent. If you have dry and/or sensitive skin, you may want to reconsider buying this product.
