This facial cleanser is great for anyone with oily skin. I happen to have combination skin and it completely dried me out after washing my face. Recommend for oily skin.

Love the way this face wash makes my face feel. It gives that clean and fresh feel afterwards. It smells great as well. I still have some small blemishes every so often.

I loved this scrub. It leaves your skin with a cooling feeling and it feels refreshing. This product definitely cleans your skin and leaves your pores less visible. I definitely recommend this

I only got through about one third of the bottle before I threw it away. I broke out SO badly during use. The only reason I kept it was because of how expensive it was.

It's super easy to apply, you have to work it in circles a little bit until it turns kinda foamy and white. It's great for every time use. I use it before bed and then in the morning i use a cleansing water. Twice a week a use a scrub and one a week i use a mask.

I like this product but it does irritate my skin alittle. I’m always left red and it dries my skin out a lot. If you don’t have sensitive skin this would definitely be a good choice for you!
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?
