I have tried many store bought products and this one works better for my acne prone skin than any of them, plus cheap to buy! Use with a moisturizer because it does cause dryness.

Good, But cause Dryness
The product is cleansing the face well but it don't actually help with acne I would recommend after washing your face with it to use moisturize to avoid skin peeling

Like but I prefer Basis bar
I bought this bar(the fragrance-free one) because I had read great reviews about it. I really liked it the couple times I used it. It made my skin softer and brighter and I feel like the glycerin made my skin look younger and healthier. However, it didn't do much to clear up my acne. (mild acne on my chin and cheeks). Recently I've been using basis sensitive skin bar and I really like it so far, it cleared up most of my acne plus it has glycerin as well so I get the healthy looking skin benefits.

I've tried this 3x in my life, all 3x led to awful, scaly, rashy acne where there was none before. Glycerin, dammit.

Works surprisingly well
I received this as a sample gift pack in college. Rarely had issues. It's simple, and it just works. Use with a light moisturizer to protect against dryness and peeling. **UPDATE** This was effective in my early 20s/college days. But now at 29, I think this is actually a bit harsh for me. The skin around my jawline and chin has dried out significantly and is quite itchy. ONLY recommended for younger folks with very oily skin and in summer.

Feels clean
Helped zits a little


Smells like straight up medicine

I loved this the first time I used it. It felt like it was getting my skin clear. The smell is awful which is an instant downfall for me. The shape is...odd. It's very rectangular and weird. It can also be lumpy sometimes when you buy it. I would recommend this for people with oily skin. My dry skin however, couldn't take it anymore.

Left no residue.
Made my skin very soft.
Glycerine is a humectant, so I found my skin feel hydrated.
Great for sensitive skin.
Wallet friendly.


Doesn't lather up very much, so it's hard to tell how much product is on your hands (or whatever you use to wash with).
Doesn't remove makeup well.

I have only ever used the Cetaphil Anti-Bacterial Bar on my face, and still use it at night to remove my makeup. After using this a couple of days my family kept commenting on how soft and hydrated my skin was. I would very much recommend this.
