I tried this in the morning, in my shower, and oddly enough I had the exact opposite problem with this as I did the Garnier cleanser: Awesome packaging, meh cleanser. It wasn't a bad cleanser, but I plan to use it up and refill it with Philosophy Purity cleanser.
I did buy the gentle one for my younger sister, and it cleared up her skin completely. Seriously, she had little breakouts all over her forehead, and scrubbing her face with it twice a day has made her skin freaking amazing.
Overall? I completely recommend the bomb-ass packaging and the gentle cleansing formula. Cheap, super effective, and I like it.
