It smells great and it leaves my skin feeling balanced..not too dry and not oily. I get breakouts rarely and still got them while using it but it didn't make my skin any worse. It's not bad but there are better products out there.

This is all I use for washing my back where I get breakouts. I think the scent is much better then the average acne cleanser, its refreshing. I have bought several bottles.

Acne med's don't work overnight. People can also use this to keep skin exfoliated and remove dead skin cells, since the main acne ingredient does that job as well as helping to shrink the bumps. You can also use this cleanser as a preventative measure. Not all acne is the same, and a lot of people have more than just acne. Some skin conditions mimic the appearance of it but they are not actually acne. If this cleanser were any stronger, then your skin would dry up like a prune. I like the scent and I use it about every other day or whenever my skin seems to need extra cleansing. I don't have oily skin and it's combination most of the year, with a few break outs each month.

Please do not be fooled by the wonderful colour and delicious smell. This product is extremely drying. On the first application I found that it stung my skin and stripped it of all its natural oils leaving it feeling extremely tight and flaky. After a few uses I don't find any difference in acne but I also found that I did not break out from it either. I bought this product for $15 from woolworths and was considerably more expensive than the other cleansers which were around $10.

There is no doubt that this wash smells amazing and is very refreshing. However, I'm not so sure how much it really did for my skin. It definitely left it clean and it felt soft straight after using the product however afterwards it was always awfully dry and there were flaky patches over my cheeks. The product did keep my skin clear but dried it out too much which then resulted in blemishes!

I liked the scent of the product, but it made my face break out horribly.

Horrible and drying product. The only redeeming quality is the color and maybe the scent, but I'd rather get those from a bottle of grapefruit juice. Actually made my breakouts worse too.

I am a fan of the original oil free acne wash, as well as the calming version, and I figured I'd give this a shot - mostly because I was curious about the fragrance. As it turns out, the fragrance is my deal breaker for this particular version of the cleanser.

This cleanser is able to take off all of my makeup, though is still non-drying. It also seems to help keep my skin at least a bit clearer, but doesn't help in a way that deserves rave reviews with my mild yet persistent acne. The smell, like I said, is what has turned me off to the product -- it's plastic-y and unappealing.
