I (used to) go through different facial cleansers but this is the first one that I have re-purchased and keep coming back to. Thanks to this cleanser, I now know that my face is, in and of itself, 'normal' and that my cleanser/moisturizer cycle has been the root problem. After washing my face with some other (usually drugstore) cleanser that smelled good, I'd feel crackley. (Now I understand the role of alcohol and fragrance but not at 17!) If I would then find a cleanser for dry skin, in response, I might develop an uncharacteristic zit OR I'd feel a film over my face and not feel clean at all. But then if I used one for acne, I'd feel stripped, parched, and aged. Humorously, during these times, I'd make faces at myself in the mirror just staring at lines that weren't there before. And with each new cleanser, I'd feel the need to buy a particular moisturizer to address whatever the cleanser had done to me. It was a cycle, truly. Skin feels stripped? Let me buy some heavy grease - cream. Feeling a little pimply? Let me go crazy with all the acids and destroy my barrier. Rash on the face due to killed barrier? Let me throw some petrolatum on that bad boy and apply heavy make-up (that smells great!). It's amazing my face hasn't melted off. One day, I ordered the Paula's Choice RESIST Essential Kit which gave me the opportunity to try the cleanser. It was then I met my new friend. I wash my face, pat dry, feel clean, and have a healthy sheen. I do not have a cracked dry face and neither do I feel any weird or waxy film on it. I never knew this was an experience I could capture; feeling clean, healthy glow, no greasiness, and also not stripped out. This is the best! Thanks.
