I have combo/sensitive skin and was skeptical about this cleanser that has menthol. I immediately thought it would be too drying and break me out. Not only is the bottle pretty (love the sleek black/white packaging) but the cleanser makes my face feel so clean, doesn’t irritate my skin and is a great prep to my skincare/makeup routine! I would suggest immediately going in with a gel based moisturizer and would def recommend this product! Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Shine Control Cleansing Gel

Really good dash wash. Help with oily face, I bought this product at Walmart. I will be buying it again because it really helped my face from looking so shiny and greasy all day long. Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Shine Control Cleansing Gel

I really like Garnier. It’s a great brand and it’s relatively cheap! This particular product is gentle on the skin and it also caters to people with oily skin. I can tell a big difference if I don’t use this before leaving my house in the morning because my skin gets oily quick. I also enjoy the blackhead eliminating scrub that goes with it! Great product!

I have combination oily skin and this is the only cleanser that works on me! Even though it's mattifying and oil free, it doesn't dry out my skin. It's also safe to follow up with a gentle exfoliant, which is even better. I have sensitive skin prone to breakouts and I was concerned about the charcoal and menthol in this but it's super gentle.

This product is slightly harsh but great for skin like mine! It tackles oily skin & blocked pores. I would be careful about how frequently this is used, though, because tougher treatments shouldn’t be a daily habit, just maybe a couple times a week. Definitely love this/ the blackhead exfoliator for when my skin is acting up.

Now I don’t have oily skin but love this for a deep cleaning once a week. The micro beads leave for a great exfoliating of all the dead skin! It also minimizes the appearance of pores and I actually tried this 3 days a week and the pores almost disappeared but dried my skin out too much. This is a must for normal or oily skin!

My face type is combination this face cleanser is good to get rid of blackheads or more like blur them .This facial cleanser is more for an oily face with excess oil I would recommend this for you if you want a more matte finish .For me personally it dried my face out but now I use only on the nose and chin area to get rid of the blackheads which helps a lot .

I was a bit skeptical when I first purchased this product, as a lot of other products I've tried to use to help minimize shine didn't really seem to work. I did notice a difference in my skin, but there were also days when I had my period and my skin was still a little oily. Some of my skin seemed to get a tad dry while using this, so I did add a moisturizer after (which is always a good idea, regardless) and that seemed to help immensely. I recommend this product, but just be careful if you use it daily if you have sensitive skin. This definitely does help with those that have oily skin.

This face wash did nothing for my oily, acne prone skin.If anything, it actually broke me out more. If you read the ingredients on the back of this product, you will see their actually not good for your face at all. Alot of drug store face washes are terrible for your face, and this is one of them.

I love this cleanser! It really deep cleans my face and keeps the bumps away. The only issue I see with this product is that it does eventually begin to take the color out of my wash cloths. I just use an old one now, but it is a bit frustrating. However, the product is extremely effective!

I am looking for a cleanser to help control the shine on my face. I used a charcoal cleanser from another brand and it made me break out. If someone with sensitive oily skin has used this, I'd like to know if it made you break out too or is it safe?
