How/When I used it:

Scent: [2.5-3/10 scent strength] There is a faint tea tree, herby type of scent to the cleanser. (almost floral-y, but not quite) While this may bother some people, I happen to love it. It’s not overpowering, and pleasantly wakes me up every time I use it in the morning. I’m picky and sensitive to scents in a product and prefer the products I use to be scentless/or naturally scented.

My thoughts:
I like it, and I will continue to come back to this cleanser when I venture out to new cleansers (this would be a hard one to replace). After cleansing, my skin feels as described in their product claims- thoroughly cleansed without being stripped of moisture. As stated previously, I like the scent. A lot. It wakes me up and beats any other tea tree scented cleansers that I find the scent too strong. The packaging is simple, minimal. My aesthetic. The pump allows quick application, perfect to include in a quick routine. The lather is rich, but not thick. I do see a slight brightening affect, but it could also be in conjunction with other products I used with this routine.

Over all, I give this cleanser a 9/10. One point is knocked off for its price. I could easily find another foaming cleanser that works to par with this one, but the scent keeps reeling me back!
