Great

This is a great face wash. Organic and clean. Lovely mix of tea tree and mint. It's quite invigorating.

Refreshing face wash

The smell of this face wash was not my favorite but it did work really well. I like that it suds up and you can tell it's working.

Light Scent

I really like the light scent of this, though I usually have to use products like this for quite some time to determine how my skin will react. Overall, this seems to be a great quality face wash, and will likely travel with me in my dopp kit.

I'm in love.

This is probably my favorite face wash by far, and I've used a lot. The smell is great, and with the small amount I use you can lots of "foam". Really leaves my face silky clean. Will most likely be buying the full size soon. A+

Good for guys, not for us

My husband and I have settled on a unisex facewash that we both can use. We like that has little to no scent. Using the same facewash makes our lives easier and shower tidier. This facewash definitely has a "boy" smell, which is great for guys but not for us.

good product

Normally, I do not use a face wash, as shaving and showering generally cover my needs; however, I like the product for its purpose. The smell is nice.

Refreshing and Fantastic Scent
Sampled

This is the first face wash I was actually excited about purchasing after receiving my sample! The scent is extremely pleasant and very manly. It's extremely refreshing and a great start to the morning grooming routine.
