I typically use this in the shower after I have already taken off my makeup, I love the smell, and when used with a washcloth or slightly abrasive surface I like how smooth my skin looks afterwards, definitely hydrating

I use this product both in the morning and at night and it makes me feel refreshed! I feel incomplete if I don’t use it in my daily routines. I’ve used this product for roughly two years and have loved it from the start.

I use this product every morning in the shower!! After I wash my face with makeup cleanser I like to finish off with this one for the blackheads. I find it helps a lot! I also like the cool sensation it leaves on my face.

This product is hands down amazing to me. I use it every night and every morning with a facial cleansing brush to really get down in the pours. After using this my skin has actually improved and I have noticed my acne clearing up and my skin feels refreshed.

I LOVE it. I have combination skin. It is altogether oily, dry in some spots, I have redness and pimples and random breakouts. This stuff helped neutralize all that and gave me soft skin without drying me out. It was great for my random acne and kept me clear.

Love this cleanser! I struggle with blackheads and stress breakouts, using this everyday to wash my face has been a live saver. I went from pizza face to angel face in a month. Makes me feel clean and fresh all day long.

I seriously love this stuff! It gives your skin a tingly feeling when using it, which always lets me know 'it's working! I will definitely be repurchasing once I run out! It's not expensive and a great drugstore solution!

I have insanely oily and cystic acne skin. I finally got my hands on this and I swear I will never stop using it. My skin has finally calmed down and is starting to clear up. It's pretty inexpensive which is always a plus
I just started using this product and it started to burn a little bit and my face looks like a tomato; is it suppose to do that? Or is it because my skin isn’t use to it yet?

i've been using this for two days and it dries my skin out SO horribly, is it supposed to do that?

Is it normal after the first few days to break out which I usually never do? And I woke up today and my face feels like there's little bumps all over, you can't see it but you can feel it. Is this normal and my skin getting used to it? Or a bad reaction and I should stop?
