Question
Acne?
I was suggested to try this product by a rep at sephora. I have slight acne throughout my face and I am just trying to get my face to smooth out and get rid of the bumps and blemishes. I tried murad but I'm not thrilled. The girl suggested I try this, and not the green version (thats the aloe version I believe), as that one might be too harsh and cause breakouts. Will this work to clean and smooth my skin? Thanks in advance!

I use this for breakouts, but only about 3 times per week. However, I'm pretty sure I'm a bit older than you with combo/dry skin, so you may have a different skin type that could tolerate it everyday well.

I LOVE this product, but I believe the representative with whom you spoke is incorrect. I have oily, sensitive skin and rosacea. The Aloe Vera cleanser should NOT break you out. Either way, you cannot go wrong with Ole Henriksen!

I have tried the green one (aloe) its good on breakouts and oily skin and its def not harsh at all so is this one ( good for oily skin not so much acne) depends on how often you break out, If you break out alot try the green one (aloe) It worked great for me and lasted me a long time as well.

This has helped clear my acne very effectively. It's gentle but manages to get the job done without being harsh or over drying...it's also helped to take away red capillaries around my nose. My skin looks even toned and fresh after each use!

This is a good everyday cleanser but if you are looking for something more powerful for your acne, I would try Peter Thomas Roth cleaner made for acne prone skin (such as the Beta Hydroxy Acid cleanser). I would use this at night maybe for a few days (3-4). If you use it for a prolonged time, it can dry out your skin. And for the day time, you can use the Aloe Vera Cleanser which would be gentler for your skin. If you use the On the Go, your skin may be irritated by the Vitamin C in it. Always follow up with a toner (I use one by Ole) and a sheer, light weight oil free moisturizer. I hope this helps :)

Question
Help Deciding - which cleanser???
I have combination skin with rough texture (deeply clogged pores). I am deciding between this one or the African Red Tea Cleanser. Has anyone tried both? Which would be better to unclog pores and clear skin?

And just in case...has anyone tried the Boscia Clear Complexion Cleanser with Botanical blast? If so, should I try that one?

Thanks so much!

I purchased seven wonders set which included the african red tea foam thing months ago and am just running out of the products. I was curious about this cleanser not having been included in the set so asked for a sample at my local sephora and was totally happy with the results. The foaming face wash leaves my face with a feeling of having to clean it some more. I was happy with this product and am currently waiting for eligible days of my coupon to go get it along with everything else on my shopping list.
Go for this one. Hands down.

I used on the go cleanser and loved it, then I wanted something even more moisturizing for the winter, so I ended up with african red tea one. I got it in december and still have some left I use only 1 cleanser twice a day. they both last so long! but with african red tea one I feel the need to wash rinse and rinse my eyes... it makes overall skin feel so smooth, amazing, but this eye irritation- can't wait for it to finish and I will go back to the on the go cleanser. for the cloged pores try additional stuff- I like exfolikate or even benzol peroxide cleanser/mask by neutrogena, but this cleanser won't leave your skin feeling dirty or leave make-up and mascara.

I wouldn't recommend this to extract dirt from pores... or that Dr. Brandt cooling mask. Both didn't do anything. If your pores are very clogged you should go and get a facial and ask for extractions to be done but very gently.

I have been using the Ole line for about 3 or so years now and your skin sounds a lot like mine before I started using this. The biggest complaint I've heard is that people feel like it cant be working cause it feels so light and gentle... but don't be fooled by the absence of burning! This line has transformed my skin. People notice the glow that the concentrated amounts of vitamin C in there product provide and the evenness of my skin. I notice the fact that my face skin doesn't feel rough and that the pores on my checks that use to keep me for going out i public 'naked' faced are gone! Thank goodness! So I personally use the 'On The Go Cleanser' for my face wash the '3 Little Wonders' for skin care and maintenance and the 'Pick Me Up Face Tonic' for a toner. The loads of vitamin C in these products will boost the collagen in your skin and help the aftermath of your blemishes heal faster and each product will help to make your skin feel softer and look more even, plus help prevent future breakouts and the impending doom of wrinkles. As a licensed cosmetologist and esthetician i recommend this to my clients over products sold in most salons and spas. I hope that helps.

I have had mild acne for most of my adult life and haven't experienced a breakout since using this cleanser (the past six weeks). HOWEVER, I started using the Clarisonic Mia at the same time as beginning using this product, so I can't say for sure whether that should be attributed to the cleanser or the device! I do think it's worth a try though.
