Cleans my pores if I commit to using it daily! It is gentle and I got it from my local CVS store, not too expensive and worth it for the price.

This is amazing, tingles on the skin so you know it’s working well! It’s pretty gentle even tho it tingles. I’d definitely recommend to others

I love This face cleanser. It is concentrated, so only a half pump will clean my whole face. Leaves my skin feeling clean, but is not drying.

Love this but I may need to use the regular as this has some spots drying out but my skin has never been clearer or feel so soft and smooth.

It's a good face wash product, but it sometimes drys out my skin. I recommend using a moisturizer after washing your face with this product.

It doesn't overdry the skin at all. It does cleanse the skin well but didn't notice much when it came to removing or preventing black heads.

This is a great product. It helped clear my skin up and I didn’t feel so oily when I was using it. It’s not to pricey, it’s $5.97 at Walmart.

Helps my face feel clean and refreshed after using. I love how smooth my skin is! I got it at Target on a daily run and have loved it since!
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?
