I have tried the generous sample I received from PINCHme for a few weeks now. Let me begin by saying that I took off one star due to the scent. I'm not quite sure what about it turns me off, but it does. It's a light floral scent, but it reminds me of something that I do not like, I just can't quite put my finger on it. The scent aside, the product works well. I feel fresh after using it. I did not experience any dryness, which I can sometimes experience from other soaps. The pH balance claim, I know nothing about. I don't know how to prove or disprove this aspect of the product's claim. Overall I would recommend it. The scent may not bother you, it may just be me.
