This cleanser is way too drying for me. I was hoping to find something that would exfoliate as it cleansed, but my skin is far too sensitive. It didn't sting during use, but it completely stripped my acid mantle and left my face completely dry. I am keeping it, though, and using it on my décolleté, where it works great. I use the MyChelle Creamy Pumpkin Cleanser on my face.
