The best thing I've ever used on my face
I'm 33, I've had acne since my teens and like everyone, I've tried countless products. This is, hands down, the best product I've ever used. Everyone always advised me, don't use a cleanser that leaves your skin dry and tight afterwards, but I literally couldn't find one. Even micellar water left my skin dry after using it. I was beginning to think everyone was lying to me - everyone's skin had to feel dry after washing! Albolene is the only thing that doesn't! From the moment it first touched my skin, I knew I would love it. It was like I could feel my face go, "ahhhh... this is nice." It takes my stubborn sunscreen off, as well as any makeup and leaves my skin feeling moisturized. The irritation in my face went down dramatically and acne reduced significantly just from swapping out my "hydrating" cleanser for this! I can't stop singing its praises.

My saving grace!
After years of struggling with terrible acne issues I decided to go on the search for the perfect moisturizing cleanser. Most face washes were drying out my face, which was a combination of the water and the soap itself. If I used something too harsh, my skin would become irritated and the problem would worsen. I finally gave Albolene a try and honestly I'll use it for the rest of my life. The fact that its paraben, fragrance, and preservative free ensures that it won't cause irritation. It really just deeply cleans my face (without classic soap or water!) and leaves it feeling really moisturized. At first I thought it felt like a residue on my face after using it, but that's just the moisturizing effect. Now my acne has really cleared up and I still have mild scarring but that is also definitely getting better.

Gentle and effective!
I had suffered with every kind of acne from my late teens to early twenties. Trying everything from over the counter products to dermatologist Rx, acne facials and strict sensitivy diet modifications - nothing stuck. My skin might improve for a moment only to spring right back, seemingly getting used to whatever regimen I thought was the fix. Never shying away from a new skincare product, I picked up albolene from the drugstore on a whim, thinking maybe my makeup removal techniques were lacking and a source of some irritation. This was the single best product I have ever used! My skin is oily, but sensitive, so anything drying (i.e: acne products) just irritated it more. Albolene was my saving grace. It liquified on contact and completely removes all makeup, dirt, and oil from the skins surface while leaving a moisturizing residue behind that has made my skin SOFT, CLEAN, and honestly, RADIANT. My skin has not been this clear since my early teens. I am 27 now and this has been my saving grace. I still get the occasional breakout, mostly on my neck and mostly due to not thoroughly cleaning the night before or hormone related. But if you try this product you will not be disappointed, it's not harsh and is kind to your skin. I realize that not everything that works for one person will work for the next, but it's worth the try and inexpensive. No more cleanser/moisturizer products for me, this is the one stop product of my life.

Make up remover cream gets rid of acne!
I swear it feels like I been looking for a product that can fix all the issues that my skin has and Albolene has done just that. I have suffered with dry skin, light acme problems, and I'm a girl that love to wear her makeup. I had tons of things that I would use for my face before bed and it was just exhausting. This moisturizing cleanser not only removed the makeup and helped with my dry skin, but has an added benefit of getting me clearer skin! This is because Albolene goes deep within your pores and pulls up any dirt or makeup that is trapped deep with your pores. Albolene melts off the dirt and makeup quick (within two minutes) and also fragrance free. I only use this before bed and I am now a firm believer in the product. If you love makeup and have light acne, this is for you!

No purging period
Soft skin

none so far

I've been using this for 3 days and I have already seen a difference in my skin. I have tried EVERYTHING known to man to heal my cystic acne. I am on Retinol for prevention and reduction of cysts and take a series of supplements (Fish oil, Folic acid, vit a, vit e, acidophilus, & zinc) along with this product as my face wash. I've noticed in the past with other washes, I was stripping my skin of all its natural oils which caused cystic acne. After using this for just three days I have no new break outs and healing of past breakouts. With other products I would have a purging period and my skin hated me! This has no purging period. It is so gentle and feels incredible. My face doesn't feel tight and like rubber anymore. I actually can feel my blood circulating again! I was scared to use something that didn't use suds like regular soap and water, but since I have tried everything else known to man, i figured why not just try this too. This is probably not going to work for people who have really oily skin. In my case, since I washed my face so vigorously in the past with so many different products, I dried my skin out. People kept telling me acne is caused by oil. And yes, for most people it is caused by oil. But there is a difference between oil that comes in contact with bacteria and oil that your skin naturally produces. BACTERIA causes breakouts, NOT OIL! I think the combination of Retinol at night and a good sunscreen during the day after washing my face with Albolene, is the way for me. I got the smaller tube from Walgreen's and i think it was about $6. THANK GOD!
