I Started Using This Cleanser Back in College For My Hormonal Acne, and I Still Swear By It

I was fortunate not to experience too many breakouts during my early teenage years, but in college my skin started to act up. Then, after graduation I experienced horrible hormonal breakouts for about a year before I got it under control with the help of a dermatologist and a new skin-care routine. Fast forward to now and I still experience monthly breakouts on my chin and jawline (this past week was particularly bad), but I'd like to think that I have a handle on my acne — and I credit a lot of that to one cleanser.
As a beauty editor, I try a lot of different products on a weekly basis; it's a key part of my job and I love to do it. Still, there's one product in my skin-care routine that I refuse to change and I've been using it since college. I've definitely tried — sometimes a fancy new cleanser comes across my desk and I decide to take a gamble on it after hearing so many other editors rave about it, only to have my face erupt into a mess of breakouts a few weeks later. Then I go crawling back to my reliable and beloved Tula The Cult Classic Purifying Face Cleanser ($28).
