DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT...

“This facial wash is the best that I've used. I have combination skin with a very oily T zone and am prone to spots since I am a teenager. After using, my face feels nice and smooth - but it doesn't dry it out excessively! I use it morning and night and I've had less spots. The face wash I couldn't live without.”

“I've been using this product for 5+ years and it is my saving grace. I very rarely break out, and I'm mid 20s now. I have combo skin and I find this works great to prep my skin in the morning before using the tea tree pore minimiser and make up. I use it after removing my make up to prevent build up over night. I highly recommend this product and loving the bigger bottle size!”
