I gave this cleanser a try as I am trying to really watch what goes on/in my body. My first order didn't last me that long (recommendations for use further down in my comments) and while I liked it, the price was too much for the time it lasted me. I decided to try something "similar" from a grocery/drugstore. I was surprised by its price. It was cheaper than PC cleanser but only by $2. I used it and hated it. I definitely could tell a huge difference between the two cleansers. I quickly ordered more from PC. PC's Oil Cleanser is thicker than the off-brand, which makes a difference in how much needed for each use. Also, the off-brand made my skin feel much more dry and not healthy at all. I figured out that I was using way too much of PC's product so my recommendations on usage are a little goes a long way and apply to dry skin (it seems to work better for me when I don't splash water on my face first). I do believe that is how PC recommends using it as well. Also, I thought I would add that I wear liquid and powder foundation plus liquid eyeliner and mascara that are both waterproof. PC removes all my makeup while making my skin feel soft and smooth.
