Ugh, I wanted to love this product so bad as I was looking for a medicated face cleanser to help with mild acne. I have semi-sensitive, normal to combination skin (just oily on my chin). This cleanser made me break out on my chin even worse than what I had before.
I have a bunch of little bumps from this and had to layer foundation and concealer today just to look normal. I know it was this product too because I just switched to this and have never had my chin feel like this.
It does smell nice though and does clean your face/removes remnants of makeup. I just can't use it because it apparently breaks me out more! :(
This product smells amazing. Initially, it left my face feeling soft, clear and refreshened. Unfortunately, the first time, it left my neck, specifically the pulse points, feeling itchy; which I found unusual considering I only used it on my face, but I dismissed it. I used it twice the next day; once in the morning, once at night. The next day, I discovered I had an allergic reaction. My neck, jawline, cheeks and temples became red, itchy and bumpy. It wasn't overly inflamed nor did it cause any subsequent breakouts. Thankfully, I cleared this up with some rash cream which took it away within a few hours. I was pretty disappointed, because it felt like it was working. I guess it could work for some people, but if you have allergic reactions to this type of product, I wouldn't take the risk.
I have used this product on and off for about 2 years or so. I have really oily skin, so it helped keep the oil under control and it cleared up my face within no time. However, in winter I found that it dried out my skin really bad, so I had to switch. However, I have not been able to find a product since that works as well as this does. I recommend it if you have oily, acne prone skin, and then I recommend using a really good moisturizer with it to make sure that your skin stays hydrated.
I purchased this wash because i had previously purchased the original oil free acne wash which has that orange color and i could not stand the smell. So i got this one, thinking maybe this one would be better. Which it is, the smell is good, it kept my skin clear, but it also did what the other wash had done to my skin and that was dry it out. My skin was always so dry afterwards, which is really strange because i have very oily skin and ive never had a wash do this to me, never thought anything would dry out my oily skin actually lol. I cant recommend this wash because for someone with sensitive skin, im sure this might irritate your skin and for someone with normal skin this most likely will dry out your skin and for someone with oily skin, it might also dry out your skin like it did to me. I dont really know who this wash would work for. :(
It worked and kept my skin clear, etc. but it makes your skin very dry.
I don't think I would buy it again.. But it left my skin smelling great!
So, this product isn't my favorite but it smells reallllly goood.
I just recently tried this product, It makes my face a little to dry
but it also makes it feel really fresh and clean .
I would definitely buy this product again in the future .
Initially, the smell was fantastic and my skin felt really fresh and clean after the first application. However after consecutive uses, my skin became VERY dry, tight and irritated. I hated it. I felt like the cleanser had stripped every last bit of oil off my face and i felt squeaky clean. It was horrible. I then changed to the juice organics brightening cleanser which is amazing and does wonders for my skin. The grapefruit cleanser did however, do the absolute opposite.
This stuff was sooo drying on my skin. Normally my skin is very oily and I was breaking out bad when I purchased this, but it did more damage than good for my skin. It semi reduced the acne, but it did not justify the drying and peeling skin. I thought I could use a thick moisturizer for the dryness and I tried to use oil cleansing in conjunction but nothing helped the drying and peeling. Not a good product.
this really reduces the redness in my skin and leaves my skin feeling fresh and smelling like pink grapefruit.
it's a little drying after using this for a week and I have combo skin normally. Love the smell though. I dont want to waste it and it hasn't given me any really bad reaction so I just try to use it up for using it once a week otherwise it's too drying for my liking.
