This can be used for the face, body and hair. (ideal for travel since there are fewer bottles to carry around). I prefer to use it as a body wash since I think it's too drying for my face and sort of "strips" my hair. As a body wash, it isn't drying and smells a little minty. I felt the minty smell was too strong for my liking and smelt almost medicinal-like. It lathers up well to a rich foamy texture. This product is made from natural plant-based products so it would be ideal for those seeking a natural approach to cleansers.
