Benefit Cosmetics Foamingly Clean Facial Wash

Benefit’s daily cleanser comes in a chic blue tube that will make your other products look humdrum in comparison. Appearances aside, the gentle formula works into a creamy, meringue-like lather that softly removes dirt and impurities. And unlike some cleansers, it gets the job done without drying out your skin.

I have fairly sensitive skin but don't normally have a problem trying out facewashes. I use all of Benefit's other makeup (Mascara, highlighter, concealer) and assumed their facewash would be great.

It smelled great! It felt great! But then my skin turned bright red and puffy. It was hot to the touch and painful and itchy. It only went down after taking allergy medicine and washing my face with oatmeal. It was awful. Come to find out, the delightful smell is due to a crazy amount of fragrance.

I wanted to love this, but my skin did not. =(

Too fragrant.

The fragrance on this product was really strong. I think I'll stick to my natural cleansers. If you're considering getting the polish as well, I preferred that product to the foam cleanser.

Heavily Scented

This product had such a strong scent I just couldn't handle it. It also left my skin too squeaky clean, I didn't even bother with the follow up scrub.

Benefit Foaming Face Wash

This product made my skin feel tight. It had a strong perfume-like scent which I didn't like. My skin was red and irritated for several hours after I used it.

It made my skin feel really dry and tight. I did not like the feeling it left at all.

DISGUSTING
Sampled

The first thing I noticed when I squeezed out the face wash was the smell. It smelled like my parents' old caresse bar soap. When I used it, it was thick but seemed to lather ok. I could still really smell the strong smell while it was on my face. When I started to wash it off I noticed my hand couldn't even slide over my face. It would stick and drag like bar soaps do to your body, something I've never felt on my face before. After I dried my face off it still felt stiff and like it had a film left on it and the smell seemed to be stuck in my nose. Even though I had some left I immediately threw the rest away. I will never use this on my face again and I will not recommend anyone else use it either. Benefit needs to take this product off the market and rethink it.

It's a bit too harsh for my sensitive skin, but the smell is divine. It definitely gives a squeaky clean feel, if you're in to that.

not a thriller
Sampled

I have dry skin and while it didn't dry my skin out it didn't thrill me either. The sample looked like it had a lot more product in it; realistically, it probably only had about one or two washes. Luckily, I know some facewashes are really concentrated so I only squirted out a little, but then realized there wasn't much left. Its hard to get a good feel for a face wash on one wash!

For Young Normal Skin
Sampled

This product would suit anyone with normal, problem free skin. I feel that this product would wash away minimal sweat and oil after a workout. I do not feel that this product effectively removes BB cream. I had to wash multiple times to remove the only thing I had on my face, BB cream. This product was not suitable for me; a 45 year old woman with ultra dry sensitive skin.
