So I actually didn't buy this or even plan on using it so I can't tell you what attracted me to it. I started using this when my old face wash ran out and there wasn't time to get a new one. I saw this on the sink in my sister's bathroom and decided to give it a try because she loves it. I used it that night and found my skin really squeaky clean. I hate face wash's that don't even clean your face so this made me really happy! I continued to use it for about a week because I wanted to see how it would work over time since I was seriously considering buying it. At the end of the week, I am happy to say that I did not have a single breakout on my face! I went out and bought it and still am very pleased it with. Sometimes, I get an occasional breakout but those are nothing compared to what I used to get. So overall, I think this is a great acne face wash and everyone should try it. It is fairly affordable being a drugstore face wash so money shouldn't be a huge issue.
