I purchased this cleanser thinking it would be nice to have something with tea tree oil already in it, instead of putting a drop on my palm every time I washed my face-and honestly, I forgot half the time. It does smell very strongly of tea tree oil, but personally I like the smell, so it doesn't bother me much. It's a great cleanser to use alone or with my Clarisonic, because there are no beads or exfoliants in it. It has a really thick consistency, so you don't need much to get it working. My skin has definitely benefited from the 1-2 punch of tea tree oil and salicylic acid! My breakouts are much less frequent and they clear up more quickly. I will definitely be buying this again!
