Although this is a little more than I wanted to spend for an everyday wash, I am sold on Frownies Complexion Wash after 2 weeks of use. I'm in my mid-30's, and my breakout-prone combination skin hasn't looked this good since I hit puberty! I just massage a nickel-sized amount right into my face and throat and leave it while I brush my teeth - sometimes longer now that my skin is used to it. My acne has improved HUGELY, and my skin tone and texture are suddenly amazing. I have even stopped wearing powder some days because I just don't need the coverage and shine control as much anymore. WOW! As for the smell others mention - it's from the essential oils used in this product, which are there because they're good for the skin. I don't even notice it anymore, and it certainly doesn't linger after rinsing. How I wish I'd had this product for the last 20+ years!!! Do take care to use sun protection when you're using this product, the lemon and sugar are natural sources of aqua glycolic acid. That's why it works, but it does increase sun sensitivity.

I still don't know how I feel about this product. Some products you can tell right away if they are going to work, but I can't tell with this one. It is a bit watery and it doesn't smell good (it's not unbearable just not good). After I use it my skin doesn't feel clean but I tend to like products that don't leave me feeling like I have product on my face after I rinse. I suffer from acne so perhaps this isn't the best option for my skin. I will say that it didn't seem to break me out or make my skin worse or dried out or oily but it certainly didn't clear my face up either. I think this would actually be a good product choice for sensitive skin or for dry skin as it is not harsh at all. Perhaps I would need to use this a lot longer to really be able to tell if it worked or not. As it stands now I have it in my shower and use it from time to time.

Completely different formula, different product

Comments about Frownies pH-Balancing Complexion Wash, 4 oz:

I found this face wash by chance on drugstore about 4 years ago. I've used it ever since and thought I'd never have to try/buy a new face wash again. The last order I received was a completely different formula though, and unfortunately not in a good way. The old ingredients were what I loved about it...apple cider, lemon juice, essential oils...nothing bad. The new formula has more chemicals and is a thin milky liquid that doesn't foam up AND it started giving me deep underground zits that I haven't had in 4 years! I'm super sad they made this change, I would've bought the original stuff forever!

new formula different and disappointing

    Comments about Frownies pH-Balancing Complexion Wash, 4 oz:

    I had just started using this product and loved it. Just a little dab of cleanser foamed up beautifully, left my face feelimg clean and had a mild, pleasant scent.
    The most recent bottle I ordered has a new ingrediant list pasted over what's printed on the bottle.It's COMPLETELY different. It is a slimey white cream that barely foams up, requiring at least five times the amount I used to use and doesn't leave my face feeling clean. I think there should be a warning that they've changed the formula and if it wasn't such a hassle, I'd try to get my money back.

    Where's the Face Wash?

    Comments about Frownies pH-Balancing Complexion Wash, 4 oz:

    First, I was stunned when my shipment arrived and saw the tiny size of the bottle! Really?! That's all?! Not much product for the price. It works quite well as a gentle fash wash. Don't care much for the scent, though. If you buy this, just be aware that your getting only 4 oz.

        Comments about Frownies pH-Balancing Complexion Wash, 4 oz:

        I have tried many over the years to help with my skin type ( oily/combination acne-prone). And out of all of them this product has done the most in calming my skin, soothing and correcting it. I was quit skeptical at first because I thought " how can something that costs so little be so good?" Well that still amazes me. All I know is that it works.

          Comments about Frownies pH-Balancing Complexion Wash, 4 oz:

          I've been using this cleanser for 6 months now. I still love it. Usually after a bottle or two a product will stop working as well as it did when I first started using it, but this stuff is still great.
          I used to have little bumps all over my face and an overall red complexion. I have very fair skin so that was horrible. Now the bumps are gone, my face is smooth and soft and my skin is no longer irritated looking. My face and neck are the same color!
          I love the natural ingredients and the smell. You don't need much either so a bottle lasts me over a month.
          If you're curious just try it.

                Comments about Frownies pH-Balancing Complexion Wash, 4 oz:

                Based on all the reviews, I had high expectations. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. First off, you have to use a significant amount of the product to feel you get a full cleansing affect. Secondly, it doesn't have a very pleasant smell. I haven't been using it for very long...but I do not feel that it works as well as other cleansers I have used.
