There are many pros and cons to this. One pro including that it didn’t really have a smell, a con being it made my skin oily. I use this biore nose strips so much so I figured this would work but I like to use it in the winter because my face is dry then! Overall pretty good.

This is a decent cleanser for me. Bought this once. Feels very nice, and my skin felt okay after but not super clean like I prefer. I had to follow with a black soap after to really feel like I got all my makeup residue off my skin.

When I put these on my face instantly felt something happening. I’m a fifteen year old girl so with my acne I’ve tried everything and this helped my skin feel so much better than most things. It’s a fair price and it’s worth it too!

This cleanser is really great! It has everything I want in a cleanser. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and it is not too harsh on my skin. Unfortunately, like most cleansers, it left my skin a little dry after use. That is not uncommon with most skin products I use though.

I was struggling with some acne when I first moved to a new state, the humidity and my skin did not get along. I bought this product and saw great results within the first couple weeks of use. I would highly recommend this product!

I use this product EVERYDAY religiously. It is a staple of my skincare routine!! It smells good, it goes on gently, and I could sense a noticeable improvement in the quality of my skin. My acne cleared much faster while I was using this product, everybody should try it!!

I absolutely love this facial cleanser! It makes my face feel amazing! I don't have a lot of acne but sometimes I break out on my chin and cheek and this cleanser really helps with that. It is affordable and I highly recommend it!

I give this product a 4 out of 5 stars because it really does a good job at cleansing my skin, but I find that it's too harsh for my skin type. It did have nice packaging. To improve the product, I'd make it less harsh on the face.
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?
