I thought this would be better than my previous cleanser by Olay, Oil blemish control lathering cleanser, Boy was I wrong. I've had more breakouts on this than the previous one. I don't understand why, it's by the same company. My breakouts were way down with the cleanser, but with this new total effects, I thought I would see a huge improvement. I didn't. I have to say, though, my face is softer than with the other cleanser, and I love the smell of this one, but for my blemishes, it can't compete with the lathering cleanser I used before. I will be switching back, And really weird, this one was cheaper, too. But it was supposed to be better.
