I only use this product two or three times a week, and I typically use it on a bare face. This will take off makeup well but that's not really what its intended for. I live in a super cold climate and this was very restorative for my skin. I love it and will buy again.
Pros: Left my skin clean and soft
Cons: Not any more amazing than a other products out there.
I just didn't think it was super special, and didn't see any skin benefits after consistent use, so I switched to something else. Also, I think it contributed to some new zits in my creases so it's definitely not my fave.
Won't be buying this again!
I live in the tropics and have an combo to oily skin. So it kinda balences things out on my skin in that, if it is 'drying' then it works well on my skin and leaves it matte. However, when I bought this, and began to use it when I got home, in my country, I was surprised to see it wasn't sealed and it was half empty. Meaning that in a coupla weeks, it would be finished. I previously purchased the general cleanser and this last me for months until it's time for me to travel and purchase another. For this reason, I won't be buying this product again. I also checked other reviews on other sites to see if it was just me who experienced the half emptiness but sad to see that it was not!
Fave Kiehl's product
This is one of my favorite products from Kiehl's. It can be a little bit drying but nothing that some moisturizer can't fix. It definitely feels like it gets into my pores and cleanses really well. I do like that it doubles as a facial mask.
I am very fair and have normal to dry skin. I need cleansers with more moisturizing, this one left me feeling too dry. It was a little too thick and left me feeling like I had residue left over.
A slightly above-average product
I used this everyday for a couple of weeks and I saw no improvement of my skin, but I really enjoyed actually using it because it has a very interesting texture and it does exfoliate properly. Nothing extraordinary, but was not bad at all.
went thru entire product in less then a month
When i received this it was half empty to begin with. I didn't see any difference in my skin. I really wanted to like this product, but it did nothing for me. And after about 3 weeks it was all used up.
cleanser for the summer months when my t-zone gets oily. I used to use the Rare Earth mask, but this works about the same.
Rare Earth deep cleanses, my skin feels really clean afterwards and is not harsh. Does not leave my skin dry as some deep cleanser do.
Nice everyday cleaner, not harsh
I have combination skin and this cleaner does a good job of addressing oil without overdrying more sensitive parts of my face. I like to use a deeper exfoliater a few times a week because this product does not provide a deep clean or exfoliate at all.
