for people saying this broke you out-that could be the product working and drawing the oil out of your pores, which yes, will break you out at first. however over time you will see results, give it at least a week or two. this is true of many effective skin care regimens-just like how many people break out after a facial, it's from all the sebum being drawn out. i think this is a fabulous product, i personally have never broken out, but then i've never broken out in my life, im lucky to have good skin. i do have friends though with skin issues that have seen good results with this product. i use it once or twice weekly in the shower as a mild exfoliator.
