Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser - 5 oz.

The best products are those that simply get the job done. This mild face wash does just that by thoroughly cleansing skin without stripping it of moisture or natural oils. Vitamin-rich apricot kernel and avocado oils hydrate and smooth skin while squalane, a signature Kiehl’s ingredient, restores natural moisture balance, leaving skin clean, calm and refreshed.

Best Cleanser Ever!
Purchased

I have been using Kiehl's cleanser for about 6 months now and have seen such an improvement in my complexion. I have combination skin and even at the age of 30 have problems with breakouts from time to time. Since I have been using this cleanser my skin has been SO much clearer. I love that it uses natural ingredients and works better than anything else I have tried over the years. I also love how long it lasts, a 2.5 oz. bottle has lasted since September and I'm just now getting towards the end of it at the end of February. It is most certainly worth every penny!

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser - 5 oz.
Sampled

This cleanser is full of sulfates and parabens. It has a far too soapy texture, making it difficult to rinse off your face. As someone who is trying to move towards more natural products for my skin, (knowing how much is absorbed by my skin), this product is definitely a no-no. The ingredient list is horrendous. Thumbs down.

Questionable Ingredients
Sampled

I really like this product when I tried it...until I read the ingredients list. Loaded with parabens! Everything about this product was great except the ingredients.

Chemical smell and it burns!
Sampled

I used it once and my face burned and got really red and dry. The sample went right into the trash - will NOT be buying

One of my favorites from Birchbox

One of my new favorites. I am currently on the wait list to buy. My daughter keeps stealing my sample because we both like it so much. Goes on so nicely and rinses well.
I feel all of my makeup is removed when using. Other cleanser don't as I can tell from leaving half a face behind on white towels.

Great as a protectant...
Purchased

I still broke out semi-frequently (not excessively, just once in a while) and this cleanser wasn't as effective reducing/preventing blemishes. My skin did feel very soft and hydrated, though, and not the slightest bit tingly (my face is pretty sensitive). It's also wonderfully inexpensive for such thick cleanser.

Was hoping for better results

This didn’t seem to be extra better than others I have tried but it wasn’t bad either. It says it is a gentle cleanser but I felt like it still dried out my skin a little. It didn’t end up as dry as some cleansers I have tried but I also used this sample in the summer. It was dry enough that gel moisturizer didn’t fully moisturize my skin after use.

Disappointed

Did not like the texture not the smell. I started to breakout after using it.

Just ok
Sampled

I used this cleanser while away on vacation. Do not get it in your eyes. Oh my goodness.
Now that I've addressed that issue, as far as the quality of this cleanser, it did a swell job cleaning, but it kind of dried out my face.
