I did a lot of research before purchasing this product. I read many reviews on numerous websites and the two biggest complaints I read were 1. The smell of the product is overwhelming and 2. It dries out your skin (especially if you have sensitive skin)
I can personally say after using this product I am beyond satisfied with it. It cleans, refreshes, controls oils and prevents breakouts. I have sensitive skin and use the product twice a day. There is no overwhelming smell, and I have not had any problems with my skin drying out! For those who have problems with their sink drying out, you should use a moisturizer as your skin needs added moisture to regenerate itself. Great product!

The number one complaint for products containing salicyclic acid (which this product has) is dryness/redness. However, one must remember that this is a *desired* effect. The main reason why we break out is due to bacteria oxidizing and getting deep inside our pores where it lies in wait to form a pimple! Salicyclic acid does a great job of keeping the oil and bacteria off the face thus preventing future break-outs. Remember you must use it consistently for it to work and yes you will have to find your own "goldilocks zone" where your face isn't too dry. Using a good derm recommended moisturizer is really the key. And besides, who cares if your skin has a little dryness here or there? You'll feel much better overall when your skin is clear.
I'm just said they discontinued PanOxyl 5% cleansing bar (can't find it anywhere now). It was my go-to product. But this one has been a great sub!

Terrible! My face was tight, itchy, flakey, and really really shiny (oily looking) after this. Takes a while to wash the filmy stuff off. Acne disappeared a few weeks and then pimples reappeared bigger, redder, swollen, and painful. I don't know why the fashion magazines recommend this so much. :(
