I use it all the time. If it dries out your skin, use a moisturizer after using the cleanser. I do, and my skin feels amazing. The beads help further cleanse your face. I use the cleanser on my face, by putting it on my cheeks, under the eyes, forehead, chin, and neck. Also, I scrub it on using my Clarisonic. Try a face brush, like Clarisonic, and it might improve your skin, along with a moisturizer after using the cleanser.
