Hey there, this product was sent to me three years ago as a sample when I purchased Zi Zai's Honey Herb Scrub (also amazing). It sat on my shelf as I tried to use up my stock pile of facial cleansers that never really did much than dry my face out like beef jerky. Then I tried it, fell in love instantly and started to harangue Zi Zai about purchasing more.
It is gentle with subtle sudsy action but it does not dry my skin... which I will tell you I'm one of those red-headed step-children with no ability to tan, and tons of ability to break out. I have the ultimate combination skin: it is porous, dry AND oily, freckled and wrinkled. I find this soap gracefully handles all of it. (Admittedly, I interchange it with their scrub and powder cleanser; this means you really can't lose!)
Three bars of soap later, I am still devoted. I know it is just a bar of soap but I actually felt sad when I climbed into the shower before bed where I discovered it was tossed into the garbage, probably for sake of downsizing the bathroom tchotchkes during our international move. For about five seconds I even contemplated looking for it before I realized it likely ended up amongst the coffee grounds and wet diapers. It's simply time for more and I must be patient. But it's hard.
