This cleansing gel is my wake-up call, due to its refreshingly sweet botanical aroma. I absolutely love this scent! There is something that makes it just smell healthy for your skin. The gel formula is non-foaming which is easy to apply and less likely to make a mess on the vanity if you decide to use it multiple times daily. After letting the enzymes work their magic, for about two minutes, I use a Clarisonic and my skin feels smooth and refreshed. It is definitely the combination of ingredients like papaya and grapefruit extracts that have exfoliating properties due to Alpha Hydroxy Acid. AHA aids in breaking down oils and grime allowing new skin to be revealed.
A dime size amount is what I found to be needed for a thorough cleaning of my face. I have not felt like this has left my skin dried out or feeling irritated, so I would say all skin types would benefit from its use. Price point is great and for me the bottle lasted a few months, and that is with daily use in the morning. Needless to say, this is on my shelf and already a continuous repurchase.
