  • "I loveeeee this face wash!❤ I use this on a daily basis. It really scrubs any leftover makeup or dirty you might have in your pores. It leaves your face with a cool minty feeling. If you have sensitive skin you might want to try a tamer product, but if you are looking for a deep clean then this will do the job! You can find it at any local drugstore ( Walmart, target, dollar store, cvs, etc)" in 137 reviews

My skin is not sensitive typically but this cleanser did cause some irritation. I really liked the cleaning effect it had on my nose and chin.

Honestly besides noxzema this is the best acne soap I've ever used ! It does tend to dry your face out so be sure to moisturizer right after !
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?
