I can't decide if I love this product or hate it. When I saw it on the shelf at Target I was really drawn to it because it's a chemical exfoliant wash, something I'd been looking into. This product is marketed as a pore refining cleanser, and as far as that goes, I can say it has done probably nothing for my pores. In fact, I think it actually has been the cause of my recent breakouts. However, I'm really addicted to the way it makes my skin feel; after I use it, my skin feels really dry and clean, so I top with a light moisturizer and my skin feels awesome. If you struggle with acne, definitely use this with an acne cream or toner as well. For some reason I just really enjoy this cleanser and probably will continue to try and make it work for me. On a side note, do NOT use this to remove any eye makeup, this burns your eyes like no other product in the world. 2/5 because I like how well it cleans... but it doesn't deliver on "pore refining" and may contribute to a pimple or two.

Recently my skin had been really rough, pores all over my face and pimples re-appearing on my cheeks and chin. I had been cleansing and moisturising my skin like usual but I think the winter weather got to my skin. My sister had this cleanser in her bathroom and I used it and my skin is transformed. After 4 days of use my skin feels really clean, soft/smooth and no break outs. It is still a little rough around my nose but the pores are so much less visible. Just don't get it in your eyes cos it stings!!

Gave me cystic acne. Stay far far away from this. And the smell is horrible.

I'm surprised at the low ratings this has on here, especially considering it's listed as a best rated product on Beautypedia. It has a creamy texture as you apply it but it lathers up and has a similar feel to the fresh foaming cleanser in the blue bottle. This is probably more suitable for drier skins though. Although the majority of Alpha & beta hydroxy acids are rinsed away, you definitely get the feeling of a nice deep clean with this which is probably mostly due to the tiny polyethelene pieces it contains. In conclusion I think this is one of the best drugstore cleansers out there given it caters for most skin types AND offers gentle, yet deep clean.

UPDATE: I stopped using this when the store was out randomly.. within 2 days all of my acne was clearing and i stopped getting new breakouts! I switched to Purpose which is a lot more gentle on my skin!I'm honestly surprised that this cleanser got bad reviews. This is the only cleanser that i continuously buy again and again. it makes my face feel soft and i can definitely tell that i am getting a deep clean. Will continue to purchase.

Gave my face a glow and smoother feel. However my pores are still the same. I got compliments on my skin after using it. Made my face look better after a few weeks but not much after that. I will keep using it since it works better than other cleansers.This cleanser works almost the same as olay regenerist cream cleanserPros: Almost fragrance free smell Does not dry out skin Smooths and brigthensCons. No change in pore size

This product does not refine my pores, there is no difference visibly which I can see even when it's close up on my face. It dries my face out and I feel like it only cleans the surface of my skin. My skin gets irritated by this product, and I have acne prone skin with huge pores. I do not recommend this product. I would say you're better off buying another type of cleanser.

Let's answer the big question first: no, this doesn't shrink the size of your pores, and really, I don't know how much AHA and BHA can do for you if you're washing it off, so the claims of this product are just a gimmick.The beads of this scrub are big and waxy, so they are pretty gentle on your skin, and I did use this every night. The best thing about it was that didn't break me out. I didn't use it to remove makeup, so I don't know how effective it is in doing that but it does sting your eyes so I recommend using a separate makeup remover. Although I would repurchase, I don't think this cleanser is anything special.

I struggle with acne scarring, sebaceous filaments on my nose, and blackheads around my mouth. I saw this product and figured I'd give it a go. I read that AHA and BHA in cleansers don't work as well as when in a moisturizer, but thought it was a relatively safe way to give the products a go. patch tests were fine, but when I actually incorporated the product into my routine, I had problems. My skin started breaking out, and my face smelled like burning plastic. The beads caused a lot of irritation as well.
If you have sensitive skin like me, I'd stay away!
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
