Rationale: Not convinced that you should using this everyday, as suggested in its name.
I used this in combination with the Stone crop cleansing oil as part of a double-cleanse regiment experiment. Since I have combination skin, it's often hard to clean my skin enough to where it feels like my pores are clean while not drying it out. So, I followed Eminence's suggestion on double cleansing with the stone crop oil and mangosteen daily resurfacing cleanser.
The first few times I used it, I had GREAT results. Skin and pores were fairly clean and, while a tiny bit dry afterward, nothing major. I didn't get an extremely deep clean with this, but enough to make a difference. I followed the routine up with their strawberry rhubarb serum and the clear skin probiotic moisturizer. I did notice, though, that when double cleansing with the mangosteen resurfacer more than a few times per week that my redness got worse. Could have been other factors (environment, diet, stress, etc.), but I wouldn't recommend using it with a double cleanse routine every day unless you're super oily. I'm not sure I'd recommend using it everyday on its own, either, unless you put it on particularly problematic areas.
I sampled this line before I bought it, and I absolutely love the way it feels on my skin. It's so gentle, and the smell is lovely. However, I wonder what it's actually doing for my skin. After prolonged use, I don't think it's clearing up my skin as I hoped. Given the price, I wish it was a bit more effective.
