I got this soap with points after reading the glowing reviews and was so impressed with its performance. My sensitive skin felt incredible after the first wash---clean and soft with no irritation. After a week or so of use, pores are smaller, color is evened and brighter, very fine lines are blurred, and the cycle of hormonal acne seems to have been broken. I wash with this once daily (I use micellar water in the mornings), following with a gentle, quality moisturizer and have experienced none of the tightness other reviewers have mentioned. Based on my current usage, I would estimate that this bar will last at least 3 months (I cut it in half as other reviewers suggested), making it a exceptional value.
