Ambi Even & Clear Foaming Cleanser

My HG skin cleanser has been Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser. I've been using it for more than 2 years and have used up 4 bottles.   And being always itchy to try out something new, I got this:

Ambi Even & Clear Foaming Cleanser.  It comes from the same makers of Aveeno (J&J) but is targeted for women of color.  Got this for $7.49 for a 6 oz. bottle at Drugstore.com in one of my hauls last year.  






Product blurbs:
  • Helps clear & prevent breakouts
  • Helps visibly improve skin tone & texture
  • With Soy Extract & Vitamins C & E

It contains Salicylic Acid (0.5%) which is my staple acne-clearing ingredient (I am allergic to benzoyl peroxide).



I've been using this for a few months now and I can say it is as good as my Aveeno Foaming Cleanser.  I think they are pretty much the same as they help clear my skin.  I use 2-3 pumps each time I wash my face with this although with Aveeno I use only 1-2 pumps.  This has lesser foam than the other one (maybe it has something to do with the pump?).  The only downside is the scent.  It has a floral scent which is much stronger than Aveeno's.  

My face doesn't dry out after washing with this (I have oily skin) but I don't know if it has evened out my skin tone because I am using other skin care products targeted for that purpose in conjunction with this. 

Will I repurchase once I run out? I don't think so because it is not available locally and I don't like the scent.  I have an Aveeno Foaming Cleanser bottle as back-up ready to use (and this is locally available at S&R for less than Php 500).

I bought the face clenser and def. worked for me then it was discontinued in the state. I would like it if you would send your product to stores in Maine. My nearest zip code is 04294.
