Not a 'Deep' Cleanser.
First of all, I bought this on a whim after being recommended by a friend who is a skincare guru. He claims that it is even better than the Cosrx Good Morning Low pH Cleanser.
This cleanser is gel type so unlike foam cleansers, it doesnt really lather (similar to Cetaphil). I finished a bottle and I really liked it because of the cool feeling. During the summer months when it is sooooo hot and sticky and you just want to wash your face, I recommend that you use this! Even if you don't have cold water for washing (and it is not recommended anyway bec ur pores will tighten up), this cleanser will make you feel cool and refreshed. I didn't undergo a 'purging' stage and it is also non drying.
However, I don't think it is a 'deep' cleanser since I didn't really notice any visible changes to my acne and acne marks. Also, not recommended if you're looking for a single cleanser since it does not remove heavy make-up. I still suggest double cleansing with an oil cleanser before using this or any water-based cleanser.
Overall, I still prefer the Cosrx cleansers in clearing up acne.
