Great Product, Even for Sensitive Skin

This is one of the best skin cleansers I have ever used. It completely dissolves oil and makeup, but does not leave my skin feely dry or tight. It is gentle enough for my sensitive skin and gets the job done.

Awesome gel face wash

It takes a tiny amount to wash your face, the wintergreen and thyme smell amazing, it is non-drying and best of all 51% organic, and toxin-free. My husband loves it too!

Good product for newby to face washes.

I am not one to use a special product to wash my face. That being said, I may have to change my routine as this is a great product. Smells great and works better than my standard soap. I use it to wash my face after sports and it gets it clean and feels fresh. good product.

Very light

Left my skin feeling very clean. Loved the scent! I was confused that its description says it's a foaming cleanser when it did not foam hardly at all.

Nice
Sampled

This face wash is nice. It leaves you with a nice clean feeling. It doesn't really improve acne, however, your face does feel refreshed after using.

Smells like an acne product

I like the gel consistency of the product and my skin feels neither moisturized or dry after use. The smell reminds me of an acne cleanser that was popular in the 70's that was pH balanced. Quite medicinal.

Good, not bad and not great

I guess this product is good, not entirely better than any of the other face washes that I already own. It doesn't really stand out. It is a good product; I like that my face felt and looked clean.
