I love that these come with a nice scrubber attached to the bottle. I didn't expect to be able to get cleansers from Loreal as I've always just known them as a hair company. Since they came out with facewash though, I often purchase one every couple of months. The facewash comes with a neat little scrubber attached in the center of the bottle. It does make it look like the bottle is bigger and fuller than it is, but it's weighted by ounce so you're getting a good bottle of cleanser. This one recommends using it twice a day but I found out that using it in the morning and night was not the best option for me. I opted to start using it at night since it's the end of the day when most of the grime is on your face. The little scrubber brush does a good job of tickling the skin and perking it up as well as exfoliating a light amount. You can press harder or softer depending on how much you want to exfoliate but it doesn't do much for blackheads in the T-zone. It did seem to calm my face out though. Often before finals or midterms I could feel a stress breakout coming on and this actually really did chill my skin out. I'm not sure if it was a psychosomatic response or not but I certainly noticed a big difference in the amount of stress acne I was having the week of finals. Effectiveness Good job on regular acne and breakouts. Not much for blackheads. Exfoliates nicely. Ease of Application Easy to use and you can keep the scrubber to add your own product to. Scent Really fresh, citrus like scent. Not too strong and great for me and my guy.
