My skin is super finicky: highly reactive, clog-prone, oily, dermatitis-prone...and now that I'm in my 40s, it needs regular exfoliation. The problem is that virtually every active upsets it, and exfoliating cleansers that contain an ideal % of the active ingredient always have harsh surfactants or other irritating ingredients.
I decided to give this product a try on a whim and I'm very happy I did! Paired with my Mia in the PM, it really gets down deep into the pores, and a little goes a long way.
I'm thrilled to report that my skin is now softer, smoother, and glowing, instead of the rough, dull, blotchy look I thought would only continue to worsen now that I'm officially "middle-aged". With skin that's looking and behaving younger, middle age doesn't seem so scary anymore!
I have been using this product for years, and I will substitute no other cleanser in its place. This is a gentle exfoliant and cleanser. For all of you in search of a great product-try it. I know that you won't be sorry!!!
This cleanser is a little more harsh than the gentle cleanser which, of course, it should be. I found it to be a little drying in comparison. I tend to stick to the gentle cleanser for everyday, and keep this one handy for the summer months or after particularly intense workouts.
