What does the product description say?
"The men-ü Buddy Matt 'Skin Refresh' Gel Tube removes impurities and controls excess oils and shine."
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (carbomer, polysorbate 20, triethanolamine) and should be able to cleanse the skin gently. Still keep in mind that any cleansing can disrupt the skin barrier, and most people do not need to cleanse their skin more than once per day.

What does the product description say?
"The fragrance-free gel is enriched with salicylic acid and witch hazel to exfoliate skin and unblock clogged pores, revealing healthy looking skin."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.
