No. I have extremely sensitive, slightly spotty, combination skin. (In summer it's oily, in winter I have oily t-zone & awfully dry cheeks.) I used the effaclar foaming gel. It made no discernible difference whatsoever, & cost a lot. I now either use a plain castile soap (eg oliva) with microfibre cloth (I got a pack of cheeky wipes & use a new one each time), or sometimes I oil cleanse with an oil blend I mixed myself. Still a few spots but it's better than it used to be, & I don't get the tight skin anymore. I mix my own moisturiser from pure aloe gel, base oils, & essential oils. Smells lovely, & really cheap.
