I love this! I am always excited to get a face wash as a sample, but this one really feels like it has thoroughly cleaned my skin. I’m pickier with ones that aren’t exfoliating (like with beads or granules or something) since I usually feel like they clean my face less, but not this. I use it with my FOREO. Would buy.

Helped Clear up my skin

This has helped me a ton! I bought this full size and so glad I did. It does have a soapy smell and does seem to dry the skin out a little bit though. I just make sure I am aware of actually moisturizing and it isn't a problem!

Refreshing

The real fresh chemistry cleanser is a great tool to remove makeup. But I found I enjoyed using it more in the morning to remove the impurities of face oil and possible dirt from pillow cases or puppy dog kisses. It has a light smell that doesn’t overwhelm or cause headaches. I recommend this for day or night use

Really really enjoy this product, my face felt so soft afterwards. It was easily foaming on my face and easy to wash away.

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.

So fresh!
Sampled

I typically prefer an exfoliating cleanser, but this stuff feels AMAZING. It goes on so smooth, and your face feels so fresh after using it. Even better, your face doesn’t feel so dry after washing with this stuff!
