I came across this product through a friend who's a beautician, she was clearing out her huge stack of products and presented me with a box full of goodies with the instructions "take what you like". I took alot of items, who wouldn't?! Kids and candy stores! This product was one of them.
I don't have oily skin, mine is usually dry and flaky but my partner gets a very oily back which causes spots. I picked this out for him.
When I first broached the subject he wasn't interested, don't get me wrong he's not a caveman (he even wears moisturiser) but he just didn't think it would work. I convinced him to try it anyway and we set off for the bathroom.
Now, I didn't read the instructions on the back of this so I applied it to his back and left it on! That's wrong! It's a cleanser that should be applied then rinsed off! So the first time it had no results except for him to say his back felt sticky!
Second time around I used it properly, applied with a cotton wool pad and then rinsed it off. It immediately left his skin oil free and soft. I was really impressed and he seemed mildly pleased.
So we used this on his back for a while and each time it produced the same effect, nice soft, oil-free skin and within a couple of weeks nearly all his spots had cleared up. We now use it only if he needs it, not constantly (it would be too much of a hassle getting him to agree to a cleansing routine every day!) and it keeps his spots completely under control.
It's brilliant, if you have spots get some!
