    I had no idea the philosophy set of washes doubled as shampoo. I actually tried the cinnamon bun body wash for shampoo last night and it did a surprisingly nice job. I thought my hair would be either stripped or over-moisturized, but there was a perfect balance that left my hair tangle free and shiny. the little sizes are perfect to pack in my gym bag for work! thank you for recommending!

    dont wash it 3 times a day! it dries out ur face too much and then your face wants to produce more oil to moisturize it. i used clean clear complete acne control and it worked great. it may over dry your skin a little bit, but over all it works great. neutrogena oil free acne rinse helps keep the grease down too.
