Clean, green face wash

I have been using this for the last several years as it is the least synthetic face cleaner I have found. It does not get sudsy and when it gets in your eyes it stings, so be careful. Gets my eye makeup off. Again this stuff DOES NOT get very bubbly so your skin will not feel that dry/refreshed after, so be ready to apply your moisturizer or post face cleaning products.

I’ve always used generic (lots of chemicals) face wash because I have acne prone skin. My skin has been doing great since I started using this, which is huge!

This cleanser is great, foams well and has helped tremendously with some acne issues. Strong tea tree smell but I like that. This larger jug is a cheaper way to refill the smaller pump bottles which are well made and definitely reusable.

This hurts!

I did not like this product one bit. It is not good for sensitive skin. It really hurt while on and I don't notice any difference in my skin.
