This is an okay cleanser. I think sometimes it dries out the skin too much so if you have problems with having dry skin after wash I wouldn’t use it.

Completely scrubs away all your dirt and oils, makes you feel super awake, however it’s far from harsh on the skin. It leaves you feeling brand new!
