This product starts like a light oil, turns opaque on contact with water and creates only a small amount of foam. It does have a slight oily smell which is not overpowering and any doesn't remain on the skin. Feels gentle and cleanses well, rinses clean and leaves no residue. It hasn't improved my keratosis pilaris or my dry skin, but doesn't seem to aggravate the conditions either. This product won't change your life but will wash your skin without creating further problems.
