Soap & Glory Peaches and Clean Cleansing Milk

My skin has recently been having some serious issues. I rarely ever get breakouts, but when I do, they are awful. I had been using a Garnier cleanser and toner, and had been doing so for a while, so I decided to change them and see if that made any difference, as I hadn't changed anything in my routine make-up wise etc.
I didn't really know which cleanser to buy, so when I was in Boots a few weeks ago I came across some of the Soap & Glory skincare, and having heard good things about S&G I decided to buy this on a bit of a whim, which is unusual for me as I normally like to read reviews and such about a product before I buy it.
I'll start by saying that I have normal-dry skin, so this is my experiences of the product. I obviously can't say that this will definitely work for you as what works for one person in terms of skincare may not work for someone else.
Soap & Glory say this is "a special clogged T-zone formula which includes peach extract, quillaja bark, jojoba oil, Detoxyboost technology (to help purify and deep clean) and Poreshrink R2 (for a clearer, fresher and brighter complexion)".
This smells (unsurprisingly) like peaches, which is a really lovely smell. It's quite a strong scent however, so if strong scents put you off or you have senstitive skin which may react with scented products then bear this in mind.
It has quite a thick consistency, but you don't need much of it at all. I usually use two pumps and that's enough to remove all of my make-up. If, however, I have a lot of make up on, for example if I have been on a night out etc, I would repeat the process twice as I don't feel this takes very stubborn make-up off in one go!
I have been using this now for nearly two months and I have noticed a significant improvement in my skin. I do still get the odd spot here and there, but I haven't had a major breakout since I started using this. It leaves your skin feeling super soft, and the scent tends to linger around a bit as well, but this is something I like.
I have been using this alongside Soap & Glory's Facial Soap and Clarity (which I will also do a review on), so it's difficult to credit a particular product on the condition of my skin, but I can say that the combination of the two is working very well for my skin!
This is available from larger Boots stores, and is priced at £7.00.
UPDATE (22/12/12) - I have now actually stopped using this as it eventually broke me out something rotten! I don't know if it was the scent in it, but I do know that it gave me quite a few bad breakouts. I am by no means saying this is a bad product - it's not - it just doesn't work for me! I felt the need to address this as I don't want to leave this post up entirely positively when I no longer use this.
