I purchased this body wash during a time when my family was going through some financial problems. I was looking for something that would work as well as the name brands and the bottle claimed that it was just as good. I have purchased items before that work just as well, so I was hopeful. Unfortunately, my hopes were dashed quickly. This product's scent is not near as good as the brand name and it does not stick around as well either. It is much less moisturizing than the name brand as well. My skin still felt dried out after using this product. The price is very nice, but continuing to use this product when it does not do anything for my skin just seemed silly to me. I did finish out the bottle, because of the financial situation, but the problems did not get any better and I have never purchased it again. Effectiveness This product was not very effective. There was another reason that I forgot to state above was that this body wash left a residue on my skin. I did not feel fully clean after using this product and that is another reason that I stopped using this body wash.
