If a product makes your skin feel dry or tight after cleansing, it is likely that it is going to have the opposite effect, and make your skin oilier in the long run.
The ideal cleanser doesn’t use harsh ingredients, which may disrupt the acid mantle of the skin and cause irritation. At natural face moisturizer for oily skin, part scientific powerhouse, and is ideal for all skin types.
