When I began using this product as a primer I thought I'd found the ultimate primer. It smoothed out my face and did a fantastic job at keeping my shine down. However, (and this is a big however) I noticed after about a week that my foundation was getting stuck in my pores and creating a polka dot look as well as my face looking extremely parched. At first I thought my skin was too dry and experimented with using heavy moisturizers. When that didn't work I thought my face was getting over moisturized so I cut back. After a few weeks of experimenting with moisturizing I decided to stop using the anti chafe gel on my face and low and behold, my skin went back to normal and my foundation stopped settling in my pores. I am disappointed to have to stop using this because I love dimethicone in other products. Maybe this contains a low grade dimethicone in which my face doesn't agree. Others love it though so it's worth a try.

This product seems to suck the moisture right out of my face. I apply this after my DDF moisturizer and it leaves my skin feeling tight and dehydrated looking. I checked the ingredients and sure enough, alcohol is somewhere near the start of the list. I will be taking this product back for a refund.
What is this product supposed to do exactly? I saw no difference in reducing puffiness or dark circles and felt no moisturizing effects. Not worth the money.
This stuff is horrible. Way too heavy on the detergents. Claims to be gentle but it stripped my face dry leaving my skin completely parched which no amount of moisturizer could repair. Face cleansers should not leave your skin feeling squeaky clean. This stuff is no good.

I've been using this product for nearly a year now but it really hasn't lived up to its claims. I have fine lines as well as sunken in/thinning skin around my eyes but can't tell a difference from before I started using it and now. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone especially with the hefty price tag.
When I first started using this product I loved it. It does a good job at removing makeup however, it began to strip the oils from my skin. It's the middle of winter and I know the dry and cold weather is the culprit. I will probably begin using this again when the weather isn't as drying. Because I'm a huge fan of using oils, I make my own oil based cleanser consisting of olive oil, honey, and apple cider vinegar.
Does a great job at exfoliating. Makes skin feel soft and smooth afterward. Not as harsh as other facial exfoliating scrubs.
