nice and gentle

I got this wash from another source, but wanted to tell you all how much I liked it. I have fair, combination (from dry to oily) skin that I have a hard time balancing. Between all my lotions and potions, and all the daily makeup wear I find that I need to exfoliate at least once a week or more to keep my skin looking soft and supple. This wash does a fabulous job of keeping my skin in fresh condition. It is gentle, which is a plus for me bc my skin can become irritated very easily. It does not strip or leave my skin oily. I am left with fresh, comfortable skin that is gives me smooth makeup application. I am so glad I made this purchase and you will be too.

I Love This Product

My friend recommended it too me because my face was usually really oily and I had a lot of breakouts. This product helped deal with my oil while leaving my face feeling moisturized and clean. It is expensive but it is this way for a reason!

A Favorite Product

I repeat what many others have already said - this is an amazing product! I love this for daily use in the morning. It washes away anything on my face while also providing gentle exfoliation. It isn't harsh or abrasive so it's perfect for daily use. Leaves my skin feeling rejuvenated!

Love it!!!

I bought this in a sample size to try out before I bought a big size and it's AMAZING. My face has cleared up so much I already have the big size on its way!!

Good for regular washing, smell is underwhelming

This is a nice wash with just the right amount of exfoliating power! It's a daily use type of product rather than a powerful mask. I am glad and sad that it is unscented, it has a weird smell, but scented products can be a problem for my skin so it's ok.

Great for everyday
Purchased

I use mine everyday in the shower! I feel like it helps remove the rest of the stuff from my face that the makeup cleansing cloth didn't get from the night before.

Brand New Skin!

This product is absolutely amazing. I don't have sensitive skin but frequently blackheads. This stuff completely changed my face. I stopped using for around a month because my skin looked so good I thought I didn't need it anymore. A couple weeks after I stopped all my blackheads and zits came back and my skin was dull. I will never stop using this stuff again!
