Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t work I like that way the product smells, it leaves your skin feeling tingly and fresh. However, I’ve used this product for 3 months and there has been no improvement. My acne has actually gotten worse. A lot of small bumps have spread on my forehead and chin causing my skin to look and feel very textured. I’m so disappointed this didn’t work for me given the higher price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I’ve been using this for 3 weeks now and my acne is worse than ever (especially on my forehead and chin). Definitely left dry patches when I used it twice a day so I went down to once a day… it’s still drying out my skin. I was really looking forward to this product but sadly I’m going to have to stop using it since I’ve seen no improvements. I’ve never broken out this badly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it As someone who struggles with pretty intense break outs, this has saved my skin and become my holy grail within just a week. When I first used it I was going through a break out and within 4 days it’s completely changed my skin texture back to normal, soft and somewhat tightened. I paired this cleanser with the toleriane dermallergo and it has really saved my confidence.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, awful packaging I very much like the product, I have bought it 3 times now and will continue to use it as my daily cleanser however the packaging is AWFUL. Each time I have bought the product, it leaks out from the bottle, no matter which way you use it. I've had to transfer the product into a drug store spray bottle and even that is better than this original packaging. It causes you to waste so much product and it's an expensive product to begin with. I find it unacceptable given this brand is expensive and has multiple other products in pump bottles that would be much better suited for this cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended BEST CLEANSER EVER, i dont really have bad acne but i would get like 1-2 pimples at least once a week. I have been using this cleanser for two months now and I have only gotten 1 pimple in those two months!! My skin feels so soft and looks way better now. I have sensitive and dry skin and never had any bad reaction to this product.
