I bought this soap from Meijer. After trying many soaps at various stores, I found this to be most effective at reducing acne on my face and body without over drying my skin. My skin still gets a little dry and I will never be able to not use lotion because I suffer from eczema, but this soap has been the least irritating to my skin than anything I've tried so far. Especially on my face. And over tried a lot soaps. Other acne soaps have left my face red, painful, dry, flakey and made the acne worse. It worked so good that my husband decided to switch from using proactive to using this soap. I can't use proactive because it literally burned my skin. So happy we found this soap. I'm actually shocked at some of the bad reviews on here, but I guess everyone has different skin that reacts differently to various products. I guess it's a struggle to find the right one for each skin type. This one works for me and my husband. I even recommend it to my friends.
