This did amazing things for my skin, and I've only been using for a week, but my acne-prone skin has really cleared up.
It doesn't lather, but I'm ok with that.
It also does not leave my face completely clean and free of makeup. Using a toner would work, though I usually just use my microfiber towel to wipe my face dry and it's better than toner. (Aquis waffle-weave, I've had it for 10+ years.) I'm a makeup-wearing woman, but if you're a guy and don't wear makeup, I'm sure this part is not a huge concern.
