This is a really good face wash! I have oily skin and it works amazing, its grainy so it gets your dead skin off but it is not scratchy!

I liked this cleanser but did not notice a difference tj my skin. Felt clean but still had bad breakouts. Popes still visible and dirty.

It was good. I thought it did the job. Was a bit expensive. It was kind of gentle on my skin. I do not think I would buy it again though.
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?
