OVERDRIED MY SKIN
Sampled

Wasn’t crazy about this cleanser as it overdried my skin. After use I could barely run my hands over my face. I feel like it’s too harsh. Tossed it out after the first use.

Face feels sunburned!
Sampled

Tried this cleanser and it left my face feeling irritated. My face felt like I had a sunburn. It did cleanse well, but didn't work well with my skin.

I don’t really like experimenting with my skin, so this isn’t a product I’ll use.

I feel like this foamed up nicely but afterwards my skin felt so tacky like it was stripped of even the good oils.

Stings if you use around your eyes
Sampled

I like face cleansers that are safe to use on/around your eyes, so this one wasn’t my fav.

HORRIBLE

I took this sample with me on vacation and regretted not having a backup. I dont have sensitive skin and this was the first thing ive ever tried that made my skin burn and sting, no matter how much i washed it off, and when i applied my usual skin care routine. while out and about in the hot summer weather any sweat made it burn in an excruciating way and it took me out of the moment and all i wanted to do was run back to the hotel room and try washing everything off. Not only that but it left this soapy squeaky texture on my skin that no amount of rising would clear away. Not conditioning, smoothing, makeup removing or helpful in the slightest.

Ehhh

Not what I was hoping for. Left my skin feeling tight and sticky- like there was soap residue or something. Not really a fan.
