The cleanser is very gentle but very effective. Its great for sensitive skin as its more like water but its not drying at all. I have very dry skin and eczema prone on eyelids, but using this didn't aggravate my skin. You dont need to rinse it off so on lazy days its perfect. It did not leave my skin feeling tight or dry. You need to soak a cotton pad and sweep over your face. Normally one would be enough but I double cleanse my face so a couple of cotton pads are enough. Its very good value for money and i bought mine from ebay (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/160773317244?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649#ht_838wt_1037 ) for £14.85 including delivery.
