This face wash cleans out my pores very well. I use the Alba pineapple enzyme pore refining face wash with a Clarisonic all over my face and Acnedote and Clarisonic on my T-Zone. My skin hasn't felt this clean in a very long time and my pores are actually refined. This has been an on going battle since I was younger. The smell is nice. The price is just right. I will re-purchase. I can't wait to see the changes my skin will be making.
