I purchased this soap on a complete whim. The reviews looked good and I was running out of my normal face wash. I LOVE this soap. The other reviews did it justice. Face Doctor controls my oil and acne, and it balances out my skin tone. I have a very light complexion so when I even have slight redness it is very noticeable. The best part is the soap isn't oily. It foams up great, and washes off super quick. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and very clean. Not like most soaps where there is a slight residue. I would not normally spend this much on a bar of soap, but it works wonders. It even maintains my skin levels during my monthly hormone spike. I would recommend it to anyone. Best of all , it is not harsh on your skin!
