Benefit 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.

Waxy Feeling
Sampled

First, the sample size in the box was pretty small, so you wouldn't really be able to tell how effective it was over a 2 week period. Secondly, the scent was very strong and most important, the cleanser was a thick, pearlescent formula that left a waxy feeling on my face. It did not feel clean and I think if used for more than a few times would clog your pores. Just not a product that worked for me.

Benefit foaming face wash
Sampled

I hate this. It's really strongly fragranced. It's a soapy smell. It dried out my face really bad. It doesn't even have any acids in it. Last months ddf cleanser had two acids in it and is way more hydrating. This is a huge downgrade. Really tiny sample.

Would be great without fragrance
Sampled

The texture and cleansing ability of this product were great, but the fragrance was overwhelming. I hate to have anything with fragrance on my face, and this product is very heavily fragranced. If it were fragrance-free I would recommend it without reservation.

Not as good as the other Benefit products!
Purchased

I love Benefit but this face wash leaves me a little disappointed. I don't really notice any improvements in my skin after using it instead of mild soap. It doesn't seem to scrub off dry skin or makeup.

Sad. Not for sensitive skin.
SampledPurchased

The scent is beautiful. That should have been the first red flag. I originally received a sample of this via my monthly BB and loved it. Ordered the full size and broke out terribly. I have cystic acne prone/ temperamental skin. After reviewing the ingredients, my conclusion was it has too many added/unnecessary ingredients that will make your sensitive skin angry.

Eh...

Does it clean my face? Yes. Does it do anything special? No. I feel like it's not really any better than anything I've bought from a drugstore. Probably won't bother purchasing again.

Not clean enough

I didn't feel like this cleanser deep cleaned my skin. The packaging is nice for all Benefit cosmetics, but I feel like more time should have been put in for the actual product. This cleanser also irritated my sensitive skin and rinsed away leaving a rubbery feeling on my skin

unworkable container
Purchased

I received the sample and really liked it, so I ordered the full size. It's a good product and a little goes a long way, but the tube is very difficult to work with. The plastic is so hard you cannot squeeze it, so now that I am down to the last third or so, I cannot get the product out of the container. It's frustrating in the shower to be trying to squeeze hard and shake it and try to get some cleanser to come out.

Wanted to like it.
Purchased

I got samples of this in my birchbox. I really loved how it made my face feel. Really seemed to clean. However, for some reason it made my eye swell. I was also using the facial polish, so I'm not sure which one caused it. If it wasn't for my eye, I would still be using this.

Too Soapy

While I generally like Benefit, I didn't love this facial wash. I have sensitive, dry skin & this was too soapy for me. It did clean my face though. I was just a little dry afterwards. May be better for those with oily skin and/or those who like their face to feel really clean after washing.
