Great cream cleanser for sensitive, oily and acne prone skin!
December 3, 2013
”I have very oily and acne prone skin and I have been looking for a cleanser that would work with my skin. I have tried expensive products containing Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid to manage my skin problems but I always end up irritating my skin more. They might work temporarily but eventually they would make my skin more irritated thus, making me break out more. I tried this during this fall because my VMV glycerin soap was becoming too drying for the cold season (VMV’s glycerin soap always worked for me during the summer) and I was surprised how effective it is in managing my problematic skin. Needless to say, I was very happy with the results. This is definitely worth the price as the first one I purchased lasted 3 months. So far this is the only cleanser that works for me during fall and winter whereas all other facial cleansers (even the gentle ones such as cetaphil, neutrogena etc.) just over dry my skin and make my face produce more oil hence more breakouts for me. I would definitely stick to this cleanser for the cold season. Two thumbs up for this great product from VMV!”

Miracle Cleanser!

This is the best! After using it day and night for 4 days my skin noticeably became less oily in the t-zone area. I am very satisfied and will definitely re-purchase. I love how it strips my skin of unnecessary oils but still leaves it moisturized. Really worth the price!

Definitely worth it!

This product is so amazing. I highly recommend this to people who have sensitive skin especially to those who have atopic dermatitis. It is non-irritating and soothes the skin even if you have eczema attacks. I love it that it gives my skin ample hydration for the whole day. Also my zits are minimal now. Teehee!

One try and I'm convinced for life.

It's gentle, soothing, and hydrating, and after using it for a month, twice a day, I've noticed that it's been slowly helping my super-sensitive skin (acne-prone + eczemic) to get better. I'm throwing the old cleanser out of my skin regimen and replacing it with this—a bit more expensive, but the results are worth it.

perfect cleanser for our warm and humid weather

this is my everyday facial cleanser. it's perfect for our warm and very humid climate. it cleans very well. it does not irritate even the most sensitive skin (like mine). it does not leave you tight and dry. but it also doesn't contribute to excess oil production. just perfect. one tiny warning, do not open your eyes while rinsing as it stings a bit.

Great cleanser!

I have very sensitive skin; I usually breakout from all kinds of drugstore facial washes, and so when I discovered this one, I was really relieved. It cleansed my face, didn't make me breakout, and kept my skin moisturized.

Gentle and amazing

This is my very favourite cleanser to use in the morning because it's sooooo gentle and soft while also cleaning out sweat and sebum efficiently, but Cetaphil is more sustainable for me because this is somewhat expensive. If you can afford though, I totally recommend this! It's a joy and somewhat luxurious to use, and not as expensive as similar cleansers from high-end brands.

Does Its Job Well!

I have tried countless cleansers: organic, drugstore and High End. Tho some of them did cleanse, most broke me out, so, i resorted to this cleanser. Its very mild, no fragrance and other added unnecessary chemicals. This cleanses my face well and not leave any residue. I dont break out from this so its a plus. :)

LUVIN IT!!! this one is so mild and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I love how it leaves my skin soft and clean.. Plus it has a scent of a coconut! MUST BUY!! I think this will last up to 6 months so it is definitely worth buying. :)

Great all around facial cleanser

I alternate this cleanser with VMV's SuperSkin 3 facial cleanser whenever the latter is out of stock. I don't really see that much difference between the two and as a whole I think it's a good thing. Both works in removing grimes off your your face and cleanses without drying. Truly a gentle yet effective general facial cleanser across all skin types.

I used to use this twice daily. The only reason I stopped using it was because I found something that worked better for me. But, before that, this was working really great for my oily skin. It helped balance my skin and strip off the grime on my face.

You can't overdo or overuse this product

I used all the products in this line for 3 months and it did made some changes in my skin. My skin felt soft but not completely smooth. I hate that it doesn't lather since that's what I want from a facial wash or rather, I learned from using this product (together with cetaphil) that I prefer facial wash that lathers well. It leaves a sort of moisturizing "film" which never dried out my skin which is great because that means you can overdo this product.

Just as good cleanser as the other VMV facial washes

Tried this just to see if there's any difference between the other VMV cleansers - not much. I still prefer though the spring fresh cleanser and illuminants cleanser. I think this cleanser is a good balance for controlling oil and moisturizing your face at the same time so that's a selling point.

Not my fave

True to its name, it is a gentle cream cleanser that works for combination skin. What I'm not a fan of is how it doesn't seem to cleanse my face. It's great for use in the morning when my face is generally clean. But whenever I use this after my trustworthy makeup removers, I still feel like there's residue on my face. It's literally like using a moisturizer as a facial wash.

Not sure if its the right product for me

I've been using VMV's Hydra Balance Gentle Cream Cleanser for Combination Skin for over a month now. I love that it cleanses thoroughly but does not leave my skin feeling dry. However, I have developed quite a few zits during my use. I am not sure if its because I chose combination instead on the ones for normal skin type. Its quite gentle on my skin yet it stings my eyes.

Didn't produce any significant or desired effect.

Well, at least for me. I bought this cleanser along with the Id Anti-Acne Toner since there was no available Id Skin-Buffing Pumice and Salicylic Facial Cleanser then. I have been using it for two months now; sadly, it has not helped me with my skin problems. I was totally expectant about this product given the majority of positive reviews I'd read before considering whether to purchase it or not, not to mention its price, but regrettably, I still don't see any signs of improvement with my skin thus far at all. I'm not losing all hope just yet though, as I'm still gonna have to use it both up.

Rashes on my cheeks

It is very fortunate that I do not have a sensitive skin which allows me to try new products all the time. Most of the products works good enough for me or if not, does not leave any marks on my face. But when I tried using VMV, my skin developed rashes especially on my cheeks. I tried using it for a month thinking that it needs an adjustment period but I had to stop it because of the break outs that I am getting.
