Our Take On It

This soap looks a lot like Dove’s soap, except that it has a faint medicinal smell. Like dove, it is mild and does not dry the skin out. You will start to notice a visible reduction of acne within 2 days of use. It keeps the face oil-free for 2-3 hours. This soap is highly recommended by dermatologists for acne.

Our Take On It

This soap reduces acne, but the one thing that is annoying about the product is that it dries the skin out to the extent that you have to use a moisturizer after washing your face. The soap doesn’t lather like the others, and it is something that I personally wouldn’t recommend unless you have extremely oily skin.
