I bought this for my boyfriend so he had a more "manly" face wash than some of my other Birchbox products. We have noticed a decent change in his skin since using. He isn't prone to acne, but does get a few pop ups after he shaves. This hasn't necessarily reduced those, but does make them shrink much quicker! On the other hand... I've dealt with bumpy skin on the backs of my arms forever (most call it chicken skin but I find that gross... it's not THAT bad!). I've used many things to try and correct this but nothing works. I started rubbing this product on my arms just to give it a whirl... why not! For whatever reason... It's working! I've used products with some similar ingredients before but to no avail. This specific product, I've noticed, it helping clear up those bumps. So for that reason alone... I highly recommend!
