It smells awful and it didn't leave my skin feeling as clean as I wanted it to.

I have oily and acne prone skin and it didn't seem to keep the acne away like other face washes I have used. But if you don't have any problems with acne it was a nice gentle cleanser.

I already own this...in a large size. A lot of people love this... It makes my skin burn and itch. Definitely red face and drying. just be careful if you have sensitive skin.

I hate this. I've used it before and it dries out my skin terribly. It's too harsh for me--just not a fan.

Overpriced makeup remover.

I bought this product after hearing wonderful things about it. A friend of mine used it with her clarasonic and said t did wonders as an all in one product. For me, however, I was only using it as a facial cleanser and it did nothing for my face. I immediately began to break out and my face never really felt clean after use. Now, I simply use it to wash off my makeup and then use a better cleanser.

Would buy something else

I like the look of the packaging, but the functionality isn't great. It's cumbersome and hard to squeeze out sometimes. Also, especially for face wash, I like something with a pump. As for the product, it works nicely, although I am always skeptical of "one-step" "all-in-one" products. I don't actually think they do all the steps they claim to do. Unless you're in a pinch, I would recommend cleansing, toning, and moisturizing separately.

Didnt work for me

I have breakout-prone skin, and this cleanser made me break out more! I was really hopeful because it works well for so many people I know, but for me it backfired! I would be careful and try a sample first before buying it full sized if you have breakout prone skin!

It smells a bit astringent, but is gentle. It just doesn't do anything that my Aveeno foaming face wash for sensitive skin doesn't do.

I found it really mild. I use it in the morning, but definitely need something stronger to take off makeup or any residue.
