The Good: -has an air pump bottle, so no jar to stick your fingers in (I find that gross, personally) -MINTY. -gentle cleansing -marketed for normal/dry skin, but I have used it on oily people with zero problem. -as with all cleansing creams, use some toner (or astringent if you're oily) to wipe away any left over film you may feel. for goodness sake, i am TIRED of people not knowing how to use a cleansing cream. -can really open up congested and/or suffocated skin, especially used with a facial brush or textured wash cloth (or with a clarisonic, if that's your thing).
The Bad (or slightly annoying): -the bottle is opaque, so you can't be able to figure out when you are running low except for the feel of the bottle. -may be hard to get the pump started. I've used 3 bottles of this and it varies. -if you are used to how deliciously cheap Noxzema is, well this may be a rude shock for you.
Final words: I'd give this a 4.8 if i could. the "bads" are really just slight annoyances to me, but I could understand how these things would be bad for others.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
