This product is pretty effective, my skin feels noticeably smoother and brighter after I use it. I have dry skin, and I never feel like this strips or leave my skin dying for moisture. The one thing I don't like about this product, which may be enough for me to not buy it again, is the smell. Maybe no one else has noticed it...it's supposed to smell sort of citrusy and to some extend does, but all I really smell is something very metallic, and because it's on my face it lingers for a while! I'm picky about scents though, so if you can get past it (or don't smell it at all) it's definitely going to show a difference in your skin.
