This stuff is amazing! It doesn't leave any residue on my skin and it is very exfoliating. It has a nice smell but isn't overwhelming

No. This stuff made my combination skin worse by causing breakouts and leaving a weird film on my skin that leaves it feeling tight.

I really like this product but not as an everyday face wash. It is a GREAT exfoliater and leaves your skin feeling smooth and shiny.
