Vichy Normaderm Deep Purifying Cleansing Gel

I've been trying out a new cleanser over the past month or so, and I thought it was time to share my thoughts on it with you! Vichy's Normaderm Deep Purifying Cleansing Gel* is a cleanser that I have used in the past, back in high school (about 6 years ago). I'm rediscovering this product, and I'm really enjoying it!

I have combination/normal skin, with the occasional breakout. Back in high school I did have more acne-prone skin, but my skin has calmed down since then (thank God!). Vichy's Normaderm Deep Purifying Cleansing Gel is an "ultra-efficient and ultra-gentle cleansing gel purifies, without irritating sensitive skin, and prevents new imperfections caused by excessive sebum production".

I first start by using Bioderma to remove my makeup, and then I splash my face with warm water, and add a pump of Vichy's Normaderm Deep Purifying Cleansing Gel. This cleanser has a nice light scent, but I can't quite place what this scent is! This cleanser works beautifully at cleansing my skin, and I do feel that it helps control oil and future breakouts. I don't find this cleanser overly drying, but if you already have dry skin than this formula might not be for you. I also do feel that this cleanser helps to reduce the amount of breakouts, which probably goes hand in hand with reducing sebum production. 

Overall, I think that this is a great cleanser to reach for if you have oily skin, and mild acne. I don't think that this cleanser will help drastically reduce cystic acne, but I think it's a great option for the occasional hormonal breakout, etc. Have you tried Vichy's Normaderm Deep Purifying Cleansing Gel before? What are your favourite cleansers for acne-prone skin?
