This face wash works really well. I was out of my typical facial wash, so I decided to borrow my sons, Oxy Maximum Face Wash. I used it for several days and was so pleased with it, I bought my own bottle. Since then I have tried using other brands and found myself very disappointed, now the only disappointment I have is when the store is out. This facial wash is worth going to the next store to purchase. I will not buy anything else. Effectiveness This face wash is very effective. It not only went to work on the breakout I already had, but it prevented more pimples from appearing. It doesn't get much better than that. Ease of Application Easy to use. Side Effects No side effects from this face wash at all. It didn't make my skin feel tight or dry. Immediacy Product works quickly. I only used Oxy Maximum for three days and it definitely made an improvement in my skin.
