Admittedly, I'm pretty obsessed with getting my facial cleanser exactly right. I prefer gels over lotions, I don't like cleansers that moisturize, the smell can't linger...the list goes on. Anyway, this came pretty close, but after a while, I started to get tired of the scent. And although I enjoyed the lather, the product left a slight film on my skin. However, I'd certainly recommend it for others to try.
