Effective at brightening and resurfacing the skin, comfortable to use (no burning / stinging / adverse reactions.) and available in small packages so you can try before you splurge on the full size. I love it and have used / repurchased many times.
Not worth the money. The scent this has reminds me of off brand dollar store hand soap (cheap!) While I am not a fan of fragrance in my skin care, I dont want it to smell like this does either. After using a large, full size bottle, there were no positive changes to note. It made my skin quite dry.
4 stars because it has a healthy PH level and is gentle / non drying, all of which I cant say for drugstore face cleansers. However, it doesnt remove makeup on its own or do anything extraordinary. There are better options out there.
The dispenser is not a terrible idea, but its no more handy than a spray bottle. It does look a bit nicer on the counter than a spray bottle, and takes up less space, but id rather just have a spray bottle and store it with the rest of my cleaning supplies. I like to keep as few things as I can on the counter.
