OVERRATED AND DRYING!

Been using this for a while now, and it is time for me to talk about this product. Before diving into the PROS and CONS of the product, I have to say that it is a VERY basic cleanser with EXTREMELY cheap ingredients. So it is overly expensive. 

PROS
+Nice scent, but then, fragranced products are highly acnegenic and irritating for all skin types.
+Does not contain Sodium Laureth/Lauryl Sulfates as cleaning agents.
+Packed with moisturizing ingredients such as Allantoin, Coconut Water and Olive Oil

CONS
-Contains Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate as the surfactant, which could be very harsh and stripping on sensitive skin.
-There is Cetearyl Alcohol and Olive Oil in it, both of which are highly comedogenic.
-Does not foam up well, takes quite a while to foam it up.
-Contains Clay, and as opposed to the common belief, rubbing clay on your face can result in micro tears on your skin, leading to inflammation, acne and sagging.
-It is VERY drying, even though the name says otherwise. Thus, people with acne-prone, dry and sensitive skin types should stay away from this product.

PROs

CONs

-Contains Denatured Alcohol, both irritating and overly drying for all skin types

-Not suitable for dryer and combination skin types
