(MALIN+GOETZ) grapefruit face cleanser

There are many reasons to dig this best-selling cleanser, but we’ll limit ourselves to three: it dissolves dirt, clears up breakouts, and balances skin’s natural pH. The daily wash is gentle enough for irritation-prone complexions, and rinses away completely. Oops, was that more than three reasons?

basic face wash

I wish we'd gotten a bigger sample rather just 2 tiny foil packets so I'd be able to really know how the product works for me.

Smells Great!
Sampled

This product was refreshing. The smell of grapefruit was fantastic. However, I have really sensitive skin and scented face washes are not always good for my skin type.

It cleaned my face
Sampled

The scent was nice, cleaned my face, ummmm that's about it. Seems a bit pricey so I won't be buying it.

It's okay
Sampled

The samples were small, so it's hard to tell if this would be more effective over time. It was gentle and cleaned my skin. I didn't notice much of a grapefruit scent.

Didn't smell like grapefruit
Sampled

This lathered up nicely, only using a small amount. It left my skin feeling nice and clean. I just wished it smelled more like grapefruit!

Wish I could use it!
Purchased

I got a tiny sample of this in my Birchbox, and managed to get two uses out of it. It seemed to work really well, so I committed to the full size product.

I have to say, I wanted so much to like this product--the smell was great, the texture was great, but after a week of using it, it totally killed my skin, which was not so great.

You know how your skin feels after you've gotten a really bad sunburn and your skin is about to start peeling? That's what this did to my face. Maybe it would work better for someone who has less sensitive skin.

Could Be Better (For an Exfoliating Cleanser)
Sampled

This cleanser was light, not heavily scented, and removed makeup fairly well. However, as an exfoliating cleanser (as I assume it was intended to be), it remains unexceptional. The grapefruit extract is beneficial to this effect, but I think that for the money and to have full chemical exfoliating power, either some lactic acid or some salicylic acid could have been included in the formulation to make this cleanser worth its price. Of course, this assessment is only based on cleansing twice due to the tiny sample size. Overall, I was not very impressed with this product (and, come to think of it, I have never been very impressed with this brand as a whole).

Underwhelmed
Sampled

After sampling the body wash, I was excited to try this product. It was disappointing. It is a basic cleanser. If you are in need one, fine. It reminds me of a drugstore brand. Not a big deal for me.
