So, I put up the ingredients in case you will be interested to read on before running out to buy the cleanser.  There is the SLS and colouring so for those who are particular about it then better not get it.  I don't really mind as long the product doesn't give me allergy and cleanser is not going to stay on the face more than 1minute.

The green tea extract is actually almost at the end of the list so the amount is little to make differences.  So the key ingredients that helps with the skin condition is actually COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE which is actually a calming ingredients and antiseptic to the acne prone skin.  Besides, there is the glycerin which is actually beneficial to the skin.

The cleanser does foamed up a LOT.  I think oily skin will find this helpful.  I did not leave the cleanser on my face because it is very drying to my other parts of my face.  This cleanser is definitely NOT for dry skin acne prone type.

I do love the smell of the cleanser which is refreshing and of green tea. =) Since cleanser doesn't stay on the skin for more than few minutes, the thing to look for is that it cleanses well, doesn't irritate the skin and doesn't dry the skin.  Use a separate makeup remover because this couldn't remove waterproof makeup.

Overall I will say that it is not a bad drugstore cleanser for very oily skin and if you are not using other strong actives like other AHA, BHA, retinol or retinoid products.

Word of advice-do not use other AHA, BHA, retinol or other peeling stuff with this cleanser if you have sensitive skin or your might have peeling skin later.
