A little goes a really long way. It's cooling and you can literally feel it cleaning out your pores. I also love the smell.

I use this once a week as a deep pore cleaner. It removes all the deep dirt and oils and helps keep any blackheads at bay.

Love it! I use it every week for my face. Will be using more skin products. Thank you for making theses awesome products.
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?
