Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! My son left a bottle of this in the shower when he visited. I decided to try it to see if it would shrink a few pores on my nose. It worked great! My pores are clean and are much smaller. Thanks! Jan 29, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Burn Scars After my 25th birthday my skin started to go haywire I've never really struggled with so this was very frustrating to me. So I decided to try this product I feel like it got rid of the pimples that I was getting, however it overly dried out and burned my skin. It burned to the point where I feel like it created burn marks on my skin around my mouth, laugh line and chin area, maybe my skin is too sensitive for this product. Now I have to figure out how to get rid of all of the scaring. Jan 29, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by okay...for a little while i was looking for a wash that would help with my oily skin and cleanse my pores... this face wash did exactly that for the first week. After the first week everytime I wash my face with this wash it would make my face EXTREMELY dry till the point I had to put face moisturizer on afterwards Jan 28, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by not for me I tried this product based on other reviews and after using it for a little over a month, I stopped. I have porcelain skin with a combination of oily and dry and some what sensitive. I occasionally get break outs around my chin and I thought this product would help. It didn't. It made my skin ichy. I began to get blemishes in other areas of my face and after almost every wash my face felt stiff. Now I have a bottle of face wash that I will never use again. Money down the drain. Was not happy with this product at all. Jan 28, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Bad reaction The exact same thing happened to me as blahblahblah from Alabama. I've never had a reaction like this before to a product. I washed my face and went to work-out. The sweat from my run starting burning my face and it turned bright red. The next day, my eyes were swollen, face was red and burning...Currently on day 3 and eyes were swollen this morning and face is still burning. :( Jan 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My acne fighting partner in crime! I don't understand why this product has a lot of negative reviews. I love this face wash! I have multiple forms of acne such as papules and blackheads. I have tried many products including dermatologist prescribed treatments that didn't work as well as this. I love how clean and smooth my skin feels after washing my face. My skin used to get dry when I first started using this face wash. What I did to help was wash my face once a day and I would use a moisturizer afterwards. Now that my skin is used to the wash I use it twice a day with or without a moisturizer. I love this product and always will! Jan 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LIFESAVER! I have sensitive, acne-prone skin that has been out of control since starting on new medication that caused me to break out. I tried everything, some things costing hundreds of dollars and my skin was still impossible. I had at least 7-8 huge whitehead, sore pimples all the time. Then I tried this. Within a few days I immediately noticed my skin was getting clearer. I couldn't believe it. And within the next few weeks my breakouts completely stopped! It was like magic. I can't thank this amazing (and cheap!) product enough for what it has done for me. Just make sure you use a good face lotion after cleansing, as it can be slightly drying. I'll never stop using this! Jan 15, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst face wash ever Okay so I bought this on a saturday at Walmart in the travel section cause I just wanted to try a new cleanser. I DON'T have sensitive skin and its pretty normal (not dry not oily), and I don't have acne either but i do break out on my forehead a lot. So i washed my face with this before I did my makeup and everything was fine except it was little drier than usual so I put a lot of moisturizer on. That day everything was fine until the next morning. I woke up and my eyes were swollen and my face was burning and really itchy! At first I didn't know what was going on but later I realized it was this. I did my makeup for the day and it was soo blotchy and dry looking it looked terrible (even my mom said so lol) So all day my face was itching under the makeup. When i took my makeup off (with my aveeno cleanser) I had these tiny itchy bumps all over my face! That next morning i woke up again and my eyes (mostly my right eye) was swollen again! Its thursday & my face is finally almost back to normal. This product ruined my whole week. DO NOT BUY IT! There are SOME good reviews but i wouldn't take the risk. Jan 15, 2015
