I received a sample of this from Sephora, and It worked really well. Lately, I have been getting acne that creates bumps under the skin and this really cleaned my skin. The bumps were significantly reduced and my pores were cleaned out nicely. It shrunk the pores as well. The reason i gave it 4 stars is because it was really abrasive on my skin. When i was washing it off as directed it kind of hurt, even when i was doing it slowly and gently. My face hurt in certain areas after that and it was a little red. I really like how it cleaned my face, but it was super abrasive. I do not know if i will purchase this, but i am glad i got to test it out with a sample.
