i have been using this product for 2 years already (on and off), so i think it's only reasonable for me to recommend this to all of you out there.
i was first attracted to this product because it contains both AHA and BHA (acids that get rid of dead skin cells, but they work differently). the ingredient states that the percentage of each acid is not very high, only 0.5% each, so the cleanser is not as harsh as some may think. having combination skin, i was having problems with enlarged pores at the area near my nose. so i decided to give this a try.
this is not a very pricey item. in my first use, i'm slightly dismayed to find that it does not foam at all. the microbeads are also not big, visible ones - you can feel them better than you can see them. however, it does clean very well. after using it twice a day for 2 weeks, i see noticably lesser blackheads and enlarged pores on my skin.
then, like most females, i got tired of it. it has no foam, no scent and no pretty packaging. i changed to some other cleanser and one day i looked into the mirror and saw my enlarged pores haunting me again. few days later i read about some positive review on this product and decided to give it a try again.
it did not let me down. the pores were diminished significantly after about 2-3 weeks of use. plus, due to the relatively mild nature of this product, i do not experience dry skin and my complexion also becomes more even, with some of the acne marks i have fading away.
hence, i think this product really works! with consistent use, you will definitely see the result. it is easy to miss this cleanser due to its boring packaging, but the results it gives is truly amazing (:
