Leaves skin feeling smooth & clean Helps clear up acne A bit drying, but a drop or too of jojoba oil, and the problem is cured. This stuff is works. I know my skin responds best to natural ingredients and this face wash is basically all natural. Excluding chemicals to help bind the product etc. I use it morning and night with extra jojoba oil that I add it. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean with out harsh chemicals. It cleans off my make up well. It also has been helping with my acne dramatically. I am pretty much just left with post acne red marks, and a few zits that pop up monthly. As far as red marks go try jojoba oil.
