Rated 5 out of 5 by from PFB Killer OMG! I love this product! As a man of color suffering with PFB (Pseudofolliculitis barbae) from shaving, I have to say that this product is liquid gold. I refuse to use anything else before or after shaving. My face is smoother, my facial hair bumps are reduced in count and frequency to nearly none. Also, I shaved my head as well. Following with washing my scalp with this product...... Flaky dandruff or peeling scalp? No more. My scalp is healthy and clean as it used to be when I was a teen. Man, this product goes with me WHERE EVER I go.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Burnt my skin :( I had high hopes for this cleanser as I tend to have oily/combination skin and I love tee tree. But the first time I used it, it made my face feel like it was on fire all day and a couple of days later my skin is dry, cracked and peeling. I don't have sensitive skin and have never had this issue with any other facial cleanser. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff worked miracles for me! I bought this about a month ago to hold me over until I could get a dermatologist appointment (I have oily/sensitive skin that occasionally gets so dry it flakes and had been having crazy breakouts [to the point where my mother cried when I visited her] for almost a year at that point-I've struggled with acne for almost 10 years now and have tried a lot of things) and it didn't visibly change much overnight but I loved the way it smelled and made my skin feel (very clean but not too dry) and it felt improved so I've began using it regularly (without other major skincare changes) and now my skin has improved SIGNIFICANTLY (and I noticed a difference after a week). It does make my face feel a bit taught (which I'd take over super oily any day) but that is easily addressed with moisturizer. It also doesn't have an obvious exfoliant quality so I sometimes like to use an almond based scrub with it but it works wonderfully without it as well! BEST FACEWASH I HAVE EVER USED.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Face Has Never Felt Better! I started using this when I had a major breakout a few months ago. I began using it day and night and the acne on my face cleared right up. I have been using it ever since and I haven't had any problems with acne. I love the clean feeling after I use this in the morning! The smell of it isn't bothersome to me like many others have said. It smells like tea tree oil and your face isn't left smelling like that at all. It's amazing that this is all natural and healthy or your skin - I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone!!
