This facial cleanser is pretty cool in that it acts like a face wash and a mask all in one. It is a little weird, the first time you use it, to see your face look muddy from the soap, but it works I promise! It has you leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes, and in this amount of time you can feel the soap really working into your skin to clean out your pores. I usually let it sit for 10 minutes to allow for a longer cleaning period. My only issue with this face soap is that every time I go to wash it off it leaves my skin with red blotches all over the place from scrubbing the soap off. I usually only use it at night for that reason. It will also cause your wash clothes to look dirty, but the brown coloring comes out in the wash. I would say its worth a shot, but just be aware of the redness!
