Combats winter dryness (but not my favorite scent)
First, the pros: This cleanser does a great job at cleaning my skin, without over drying, which is a must in sub-zero winter temps! I used this cleaner along with the Pomegranate Elixir, and Pomegranate Moisturizer.
Cons: I really wanted to love this cleanser, and it is effective, but I did not enjoy the smell! Maybe I just don't like pomegranate oil? I have never used a pomegranate oil product before. To me, this smelled really soapy, and not in a good way. But, I do appreciate that PLO does not add fragrance to any of their products, in order to keep us safe and healthy. So, I have accepted that I don't enjoy the scent aspect of this cleanser. Perhaps others enjoy the scent more than I. Now, if this smelled more like the Pomegranate Moisturizer in the jar, then I'd be a fan!
Also, the pomegranate oil didn't seem to distribute well, and sunk down to the bottom of my bottle in clumps. I just finished using my bottle and had to dump out the clumps of dried-out oil. But again, that is to be expected with a natural product with no suspending agents, so, I can't complain too much.
Overall I give this 4 stars for effectiveness, and take away 1 star for the scent.
