Best face wash I have ever used!!!

I have tried several other face washes over the years and have to switch for different seasons, but not with this product. I have sensitive and combination skin and fluctuates with the seasons, very dry in winter and oily in summer. It leaves your face soft, not too oily or dry and absolutely no breakouts, thank goodness.

Great after three uses

I've only used this face wash three times so far and already notice a significant improvement to my complexion. I'm one of those people who has used nearly everything in stores to combat acne with no luck. If a new product comes out, I buy it with fingers crossed. Only one thing has helped at all, but I still broke out. With this face was my breakouts have cleared up and my skin feels smoother.

Okay but....

I purchased this hoping it would help with my Rosacea and saw a little improvement but not alot... I'm somewhat disappointed because I expected more from this. My pores and texture improved though.

Gentle and moisturizing!

I've been using most of the Recovery line for a few weeks now and my skin has never been happier. I suffer from rosacea and this plus the 1% BHA lotion and moisturizer have really helped a lot with redness, bumps, and dry patches. It works great with the Liz Earle muslin cloths too.

Buy this if you have rosacea

Love this and will buy it over and over! I have noticed a huge difference in my outbreaks since I started using this product. Does not dry out skin and removes all of my makeup. Will eventually try the whole line of products.
