I love using this soap. I have super oily skin. So oily that I can fill up 3 to 4 large blotting sheets every hour afyer I wash my face. It's bad. I also have hormonal, sometimes cystic acne. There's always at least 2 pimples on my face and because I can't get to a dermatologist treating once they get here is the best I can do.
Unfortunately things that dry my face out too much tend to scab and then scar the bigger pimples. So I tried putting neosporin on those to help heal faster but it ended up giving my a huge pimple right next to the one I was treating.
So basically I needed a cleanser that would cleanse me completely and take all my makeup off since I wear a lot, and not make my face feel stripped and tight or oily.
This stuff smelled good but not strong, made me feel very clean but not tight, sudsed up super well so a little went a long way and rinsed away easily and cleanly.
It doesn't do anything mind blowing but I like what it does do and that it's not too harsh or too gentle. It also makes a little dent in how oily I am for a while.
I would definitely recommend. Especially with the entire system of clarifying lotion 3 or 4 and the dramatically different lotion. It's amazing. No mask feeling or break me out or feel too tight.
Its also decently price for being a higher end skincare item.

I have combination skin. Dry cheeks that skin peels off around, oily T zone with acne (cystic under cheeks, small zits pop up everywhere, black heads everywhere). I also have redness under my cheeks and any acne I have always takes forever to heal (like a week). THIS HAS BEEN A LIFE CHANGER! My acne has mostly cleared up, the best it's ever been with my seven year battle with it even after numerous dermatologist appointments. My skin stays hydrated but is not oily by the end of the day. My makeup stays on better. It's quite pricey but it's the best purchase I've ever made.

This is hands down my most favorite cleanser ever. Ever. It has an INCREDIBLE clean feel after. It’s non foaming. And it truly does mattify you after just one use. This is perfect for anyone with issues with oil on their face.

Even though this is a bit expensive for face wash it is totally worth every penny. This is my go-to face wash when my face is acting up and being very problematic. It subsides the oil on my face as well as making my face clearer and my pore look smaller.

This is one of my absolute favorite cleansers, I use it in the trio along with the toner and the gel moisturizer. I love that it has no scent which sometimes can be over bearing in a cleanser. It is very good for sensitive skin because of that. I would recommend it to anyone as it would suit even people with dry skin.

This soap is very straight to the point. It doesn't really show a difference in my skin, but I guess it does what its meant to do-cleanse. I finished the bottle but I don't plan on repurchasing. I don't think its necessary for me personally. I wish it had some sort or fight or prevention against acne.

Hate it, hate it, hate it. It didn't not control my oil at all! Yet somehow it still made some parts of my face feel right and dry. I was seriously disappointed in this product since I really loved the dramatically different gel, and clarifying lotion I thought I would love this too... Nope.

I have been using this product for about two years, and I feel that it doesn't hurt if you use this product but it isn't crazily good. It cleanses the skin and makes my face feel squeaky clean but doesn't improve my skin very much. I will buy again if I can not find a better cleanser.

I've been using this cleanser since I was a teenager (it was a long time ago) and I love it just as much as I did then. It helps keep my acne at bay and doesn't dry my skin out too much so I can use it in any season. I've repurchased it for years and I'll keep repurchasing it.

In your opinion does the liquid soap works the same as the bar soap? My mom prefers the bar soap, she says it works better.
