While I was in Hong Kong last year, I visited mannings (A drugstore in Hong Kong similar to Shoppers in Canada). After a nice 10 minutes of conversation with the sales associate there, she gave me 10 packs of this as samples when I made purchases of some other product I can't remember now. I'm happy haha! I never got a chance to use these until recently I started having stress pimples though. =(

Don't worry about tilting your heads, I have this info in this review =)

The product is in gel form, clear and smells just like tree tea. I guess I can describe it as "herb". I like this smell a lot because I love natural products.

I believe it's because my midterms are coming up and my abnormal menstrual cycle, i was experiencing what I call, Stress Pimples and White heads. I have Dry/Combination and highly sensitive skin type so I was quite skeptical when trying this product. When I was on MUA, most people who uses this product have acne prone/oily skin, so I became worried about over drying or flaking or other irritations. Since this is a natural product, I gave it a try anyway.With the samples I received (10 samples x 8g = 80g; almost 1/3 of the actual size) It lasted me about 2 and 1/2 weeks.

I love the smell of this product right when I opened the package. I do think it can be a personal preference since i have a soft spot of herbal scents or anything smelling natural. It gave me a very soothing and calm feeling after cleansing my face. I love using this after I remove my make up after a whole day of work/school. It's very refreshing and no irritations at all. Make sure you don't get it in your eyes though, it's not the nicest feeling.

I did experience some tightness but with some hydration toners and face moisturizers, the tightness is not a huge problem if you're using it for a few weeks (just to target some trouble areas). However, if my skin is behaving, I will use my regular face wash because I don't want this item to rip off too much of my natural face oils.

In terms of the results of my stress pimples and whiteheads, I noticed that it has cleared up. Especially around my nose and T-zone area. Even my blackheads seems to be disappearing. I think it does a superb job of cleaning and although it's quite dry for me. I think this is an excellent product for oily/combination to acne prone skin.

Overall: ♥♥♥♥
I took off one point because for a dry/combination skin type like myself, I find that it will be over drying in the long term.

Product: 5/5 ♥
Fits with description perfectly since it was designed for Acne prone skin.
Packaging: 4/5 ♥
Is it just me, or does it seem like acne products seem to look very boring? ex/ Proactive, Oxy, Clearasil
Price: 5/5 ♥
Very affordable and comes in a great size!
