      Love it

      It’s the only cleanser that has worked for me long term. I have had adult acne for years ( I’m almost 60) and now I hardly get a blemish

      No More Breakouts

      I'm 47 and have had breakout prone skin since my teens, plus periods of cystic breakouts with the hormonal changes of my '40s. Not anymore. This is the only cleanser that has almost completely cleared my skin. The little scrubbing beads keep my pores clean, and the gentle foaming takes care of oil. I've been using this product for about six months and am truly grateful for what I see in the mirror.

      Blemish control cleanser

      I am so glad I took the skin type test to get an idea of what type I am. This was recommended for my type, and it is wonderful as it evens out my skin tone and takes away all the built-up dirt.

      A favorite!

      I have been using this cleanser for years. My 45 year old skin can be drier and have fine lines, but also prone to breakouts/congestion in warmer months and this cleanser keeps it in check. Always feels clean and smooth afterward, never drying and I really like it after the balm cleanser to wash away that filmy after feel.
