I love the Clean & Clear Morning Burst regular variety and I picked up the shine control version on accident one time. I liked it just the same as I like the regular version! It had a great invigorating scrub that is great at waking you up in the morning. It did not have the citrus scent, but it still had a pleasant scent that made it refreshing for waking up. I do not have shiny skin really ever, so I cannot attest to how well it prevented or removed shininess. I can say though that while using this I never had those rare occasions where I did get a shiny nose! This soap really did a great job of getting all the dead skin, dirt, and debris off of my face also. I sometimes used it at night when I was in a rush and it was also great at removing makeup in addition to all the other grime. The bottle is really easy to use and I love that it sits upside down so that all the solution is always close to the opening rather than having to wait for it to slowly come down the tube. This is a great product and everyone should give it a try!
