I was initially wary of using this cleanser as thought it would be too drying and was aimed at more acne prone/teenage skin. I have 39 year old combination skin, with a classic oily T-zone & the occasional spot. I and was happily using the Frankincense cleanser (which is lovely too), but felt I needed something to cleanse the T-zone a little more thoroughly so thought I would give this a try, and am so glad I did! It cleanses the skin thoroughly but without stripping it, leaving it soft, but without any feeling of tightness, or dryness that a lot of cleansers designed for combination skin seem too. I can even get away with not applying moisturiser afterwards if I want too it is that non-drying! A fabulous product, would highly recommend it.
