I'm sure this cleanser is great, just not for my skin. As I've gotten older my skin has gotten more sensitive. I have combination skin, just oily in my t-zone and never dry and don't break out often and I liked the idea of eliminating oil. This cleanser has a very masculine smell. I wouldn't mind except it made me break out in hives/acne along my jawline. My skin was itchy and dry. I'm sure if I had maybe less sensitive skin and more oil this would work, but just not good for me. It's too strong.
