            I've tried so many different face washes and this is by far my favorite! and a great price! I have dry/normal skin and Ito works great. I would recommend cutting it into smaller pieces so it lasts longer.

              I've had terrible cystic acne for 15 years, I've tried absolutely EVERYTHING out there, including pricey dermatologists and prescription drugs. Nothing has ever helped my face like this stuff! After about 5 days of morning and night cleansing with the bar my skin was less oily, and my acne started fading fast! I still get the occasional breakout due to hormones but this stuff is a God send! And it smells so fantastic! I highly recommend this if you've got troubled, oily, or acne prone skin!
