This is not a horrible cleanser - I like the fact that it's oil-free and helps control my oily skin. The foamy texture of it is wonderful. However, the first time I put the foam on my face, I felt like I was going to pass out from the overpowering scent of the product. It was an extremely unpleasant experience. I haven't gotten around to returning the product yet and am still using it, and I can appreciate the good qualities it offers, but I just make sure not to breathe when I first put it on my face!
