I had several laser incisions on forehead and cheeks after removal of sebaceous hyperplasia. My derm recommended a very gentle and mild cleanser and I chose this one as I am already in love with the recovery serum and trust the brand. I was not disappointed. This cleanser did an amazing job not only removing SPF, but also I noticed that my pores did not get clogged and continued to be tight and clean. Normally I use glycolic based cleanser (jan marini) and exfoliate several times a week, but could not do either one of those due to healing incisions for about 2 weeks. After washing, the skin was soft and smooth with absolutely no tight feeling or dryness.
