I'm not overly impressed with this cleanser. In fact, I suspect this may have contributed to a recent break-out I experienced. And I rarely have break outs with the exception of sometimes during that TOM. The smell is very minty/tea tree. Thats a nice plus. Also, it really gets your face really clean. Another plus. But, despite that I love most MUAC products, I do not care for this cleanser all that much. Will not be re-purchasing as for deep cleansers, I'm going back to LUSH Coalface for my go-to deep cleanser.

I'm glad I got the sample size. I got this for my face but it caused a breakout (tiny bumps all over). To try to get something out of this I used it as a body wash. While it was on my skin felt tingly (tea tree oil?) but it did not appear to cause a body breakout. I'll keep using it as a body wash for now.

I'm disappointed b/c while I love the premise of anti-aging + acne fighter in one product this is another product that does not work for my face. Back to the drawing board...

Great facial cleanser for acne prone skin. I am thinking it has been reformulated since some of the earlier comments describing it as a gel and having a pine sol smell. It is a liquid that has a lovely minty feeling. I like to leave it on my face while I wash my hair or brush my teeth so that the ingredients have time to work. It leaves my skin feeling absolutely clean.

I LOVE this cleanser. Anytime I start to feel a breakout, I use this, and it helps to eat away all the bacteria. I follow up with Tea Tree oil too, but it only works with the one-two combo. This is better than many high end acne products I have purchased (Murad, Boscia, etc.) Also it helps to regenerate skin cells and keep your skin looking soft and fresh! I use as an occasional treatment cleanser. Unfortunately, when I went to refill at the MUAC website, it was no longer listed. i hope they didnt discontinue :O(

Great cleanser! Removes makeup and leaves face feeling fresh, but is a little too drying in the winter.

This product made my face breakout. I had a few small pimples and since I have used this I have huge cystic acne all over my face. Terrible!

Got this as a sample with my peel, and hope to purchase. It is a gel like texture with a medicinal smell - I guess it is the tea tree oil. However my face glows afterwards and I haven't has a break out since. It really feels like it is doing something, and the ingredients are pure.

this is a great soap-free cleanser that offers a deep clean, without stripping skin or causing irritation. it rinses clean and leaves no residue. the one turn-off is the eucalyptus oil in it - it's purpose is antibacterial, but it smells a little like pine sol.

a little goes a long way, and i will definitely buy this again.
