Kiehl’s went to the ends of the earth to create this fragrance-free daily cleanser. Made with exotic Brazilian clay from the mouth of the Amazon, it clears away dirt and toxins without drying out skin. The combination of foaming action and satisfying grittiness let you know the product is working.
Last week I tried this as a sample and I ordered it the next day. Something AWFUL has been happening to my skin the past month - I am 33 but my face thinks I'm 13, in the worst way possible.
I restructured my entire cleansing routine around THIS CLEANSER and it has been saving my face. I was already a Kiehl's fan but I am a fan for life now.
I was so excited to see the Rare Earth Daily Cleanser come back to Birchbox! I had used the product faithfully for over a year and had just about gotten my acne and skin issues under control when this was no longer available. Just seeing it back in the shop made me order a tube on the double.5
I have a Clarisonic brush and this cleanser works AMAZINGLY with the brush! I just wet my face and neck, spread some product on the brush head, turn the machine on and go! This product lathers SO WELL with the brush, producing a rather luxurious lather, and together with the mild grit of the product, you know it's cleaning deep into your pores. The best part about it? Washing the product off your face is so easy, unlike so many other cleansers out there!4
I felt like this gave me a deep down clean but left me with a gritty film on my face. I had to use a toner to get it off and I don't use toner (luckily, I had a sample). I had a sample of this and determined the leftover grit would prevent me from purchasing it. I could, however, see using it once a week to exfoliate and leaving it on like a mask for a few minutes.3
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.4
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.
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!2
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.5
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.2
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.3
