I only purchased this product because of it's strong advertised selling point: gets rid of oily skin. Seeing how good the reviews are here, I wonder how many people really have OILY skin. As someone who has acne-prone skin and extremely oily skin (using clean&clear's blotting sheets, I can fill up the whole sheet during the summer + more!), I think I am in the position to judge the product efficiently. This does absolutely nothing for my oily skin during the summer. I was in doubt that any product can suppress oil production for a few hours, but I went for it anyway.. and regretted. The harsh beads supposedly exfoliates my skin, but it really just irritates me more and probably increases oil production. Save the money and purchase a few mud masks or a natural cleanser that is less harsh! Effectiveness Falsed to keep it's advertised selling point. My oily skin stayed oily! And I had such high hopes Ease of Application It is a tubing that you squeeze out. Nothing difficult about it. Scent Too strong for me. The strong scent combined with the harsh exfoliating and hot summer heat makes me shiver just thinking back.
