I know this cleanser is meant for men, but I used it anyways because I received a sample and figured it couldn't be THAT different. Anyways, it definitely smells manly, but in terms of performance it isn't anything spectacular. It foams slightly, unlike Fresh's Soy Cleanser but I like the smell of the soy cleanser better. It also cleans better than the soy cleanser, which did not do much in terms of makeup removal. However, this comes no where close to my all-time favorite cleansers, Boscia purifying cleansing gel and Shu Uemura cleansing oil in A/O.
