Acure Brightening Cleansing Gel

We want a cleanser that washes away makeup and oil—but leaves our skin’s much-needed moisture untouched. This treatment does us one better: Not only does it not dry our face out, it actually infuses our skin with antiaging ingredients for a complexion that’s younger-looking as well as freshly clean.

The product I received is not what is shown. I received a bottle with yellow on it and it smelt more like lemon/lemon cleaner. The stuff that is in the picture, I have bought previously. The stuff I intended on getting smells like a refreshing orange. What a disappointment.

Smells lik Lysol!
Purchased

I bought this face wash because I have enjoyed other products from this brand, but this face wash is not their best product. First of all, it smells like cleaner - specifically lemon Lysol. It also dries my face out so much, it makes me wonder what products are in this that smell and act like a cleaning product.

Was horrible for my oily complexion. Felt cheap, broke me out. Left my skin feeling gross.

Terrible

This is the worst cleanser I have ever used. It's thick, doesn't remove makeup complexity, and smells awful. Would never purchase.

Decent but smell's like household cleaner
Sampled

I like the feel of the wash but can't get over the scent - smells like murphy's oil soap. The texture is decent but the cleanser was just so-so.

Beware!

Overall it seems this product is great for most users but, I wanted to leave my review as I had a bad reaction to this Acure facial gel. Initially, my skin felt great so, I used it 2 nights in a row. On the third day I noticed the skin around and under my eyes was very dry, itchy and had formed small bumps. Then, I noticed a huge blemish on the bridge of my nose. This product was the only new addition to my routine so, I was pretty sure it had caused this reaction but, I wanted to investigate anyway. The product website contained a few reviews stating users had this exact reaction. The dry patches and bumpy areas are now swollen and still itch like crazy 5 days later. I'll be using hydrocortisone cream and taking some benadryl...hoping for relief soon!

I do really love Acure products but my skin doesn't like them! My skin is EXTREMELY sensitive so I hate getting skin care in my box.. I'm guaranteed to break out..

What is it supposed to do again?

There was no difference in my skin from using this, and I didn't feel confident it was doing anything on a scale that the naked eye cannot see.

This product is made for combination to oily skin, I have dry skin so this face wash made my skin super dry and I felt like I had to use an entire jar of moisturizer to make my skin feel normal again.
