This is ok. I was not impressed really. Smells good. Didn't do any damage. But didn't really help either. My skin is combination and it seemed to get oiler on the jaw line causing light acne. I will not be using anymore. Got it really cheap so I'm cool.

I received this product in a previous VoxBox and it was the full sized product. I started breaking out more than usual so I decided to switch cleansers and I now use this product. The formula is great and I haven’t had any problems with breakouts. It leaves my skin feeling clean and soft without drying it out. I use this product 1-2 a day in the shower and it works great! (My skin isn’t very oily and it is not very dry. It’s pretty normal. I only breakout 1-2 times a month. My skin is pretty clear. I generally wash it at night or in the morning or both.)

Current everyday cleanser. It is very gentle, pleasant fresh scent. I use it when I wash my face only, as apposed to when in the shower. It works well with my face exfoliator also. Doesn't leave my skin feeling dry or tight after. Am enjoying it.

It’s a great product!! Smells good and leaves my skin feeling super soft. I originally got this product from Influenster to try for free but I have also bought it again and again at Target!

This is slightly expensive, but sort of worth it.  It could last longer or be cheaper, but it does work.  It is especially nice in the summer because it is refreshing and it does not leave any kind of residue on your skin.  I buy it, but not often. It is only best for summers.

Love love love this product. I received this in a voxbox a while ago and I have not stopped using it since. I have oily skin and it does a great job cleansing it.

Very pleased with this product. Got it on clearance and was skeptical but my skin instantly felt softer. The tube lasts long too. You do not have to use much, I use about a little less then my pinky nail size and it lathers so well. Smells nice, not too potent.

I suffer from very dry skin, and most face washes and moisturizes cause me to break out. However this face cleanser is amazing! It doesn’t cause me any breakouts and it leaves my face glows and moisturized. I will definitely be purchasing this again

Many have said that they dislike the scent, what do it smell like? Also do you get irritated or break out? (Oily/acne skin)
