I’ve tried many cleansers. Some were oily and soapy all at once. They cleaned my skin well and left it feeling great but they were all very pricey. I then tried powdered cleansers that were supposed to brighten my skin. They also were nice but only in the beginning. After awhile, my skin felt dry and flaky. Finally, I find this (Balancing Facial) cleanser is not only mostly organic (I find that the more organic the cleanser, the more my body can tolerate the product over time) it leaves my skin refreshed and NOT dry and it cleanses every single bit of make-up or grime I may have on my face. It works in all seasons, even the wintery, dry chapping times and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and totally cleansed.
