Overall I am in love with this cleanser
June 30, 2017
It is a fantastic cleanser; my skin is clearer, my pores are smaller, my whole complexion is overall significantly better. You don't need much to get a good amount of foam and the smell really isn't that bad (it's quite a strong tea tree scent). My face does feel quite dry after using it but as long as you moisturise then it isn't a problem.
However, a few things to be aware of. First off is the purge period. I found that during the first two weeks of using this I was getting spots appearing. This is because everything has to come to the surface before it can be removed completely. I made sure to use the product long enough to ensure it was a purge period and not a bad reaction before giving up on the product.
Secondly, while it certainly doesn't feel like it due to the gentle foam it IS an exfoliator. If you over exfoliate your skin then it can cause break outs. I know people who use it every day but I personally found that to be too much for my skin - once every two or three days seemed to have the best effect for me.
