Can't tell a difference yet
Sampled

I have extremely sensitive skin and this left it looking more red than usual but it seems gentle enough for most other skin.

Maybe with more uses?
Sampled

I've seen the reviews from users of the full-size product who seem quite impressed with how this works, so maybe it's just that the sample size is too small. I'm really desperate to find a good wash that will do what this claims, but I can't say that I'm impressed after the few washes I got out of this sample.

too small
Sampled

used the product and thought the sample size was too small to notice any long term effects. but might try it because I am always trying and looking for that perfect cleanser and like AHA's.
on a positive note i did not experience any irritation or dryness after using this product.

Nothing special
Sampled

Honestly, I was sort of scared to try this because A) I didn't know exactly what its purpose is, since it is so multi-purpose, and B) it seemed to be very potent. However, after using this a few times, there was nothing to be anxious about. Just a cleanser.

No difference

I saw zero difference between using this and my regular salicylic acid containing face wash. In fact, I think my regular Nutrogena face wash does a better job of keeping my skin clear than this does.

Not bad.

Hard to tell how well it works based on the small sample size, but I liked it when I was using it.

Not sure
Sampled

I want to say it worked well, but like many have said before me, the sample was too small for any noticeable effects.

Felt good - but did it work?
Sampled

I just can't decide if I like this product because there wasn't enough! It left my skin feeling a little tighter and refreshed but it's such a tiny sample that I couldn't use it long enough to decide if it was effective.

Need more time
Sampled

My skin feels pretty soft after use, but I couldn't tell a major difference. With the amount that's in the sample, I can't really make a fair judgement. I might be able to tell a difference with the full size.

Made my skin dry :(
Sampled

Totally dried out my skin, to the point wear I had to moisturize multiple times a day. Not a big fan.
