Overall, ok

I purchased a trial version of this and can't say I'm too impressed. My skin is dry combo and I feel like this particular cleanser dries it out a lot. However, it does remove make up very well and my skin always feels clean afterwards.

Excellent cleanser
Sampled

I was so happy when I got this in my box because I've been dying to try this cleanser. I've heard so many good things and I could definitely see why. Even with the most sensitive of skin, I feel like this cleanser can be used for everyone. It just makes your face feel refreshing and healthy. After a long day of wearing a full face of makeup, this product definitely makes your skin feel more renewed.

Best facial cleaner ever
Purchased

I am loyal to this product and have been using it for years. It is a gentle cleanser that removes make up in a matter of seconds. It does not have a strong scent or irritants and leaves my face soft, fresh and clean. I LOVE IT!

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.

Perfect Gentle Cleanser
Purchased

I loved this! I have acne prone combination skin and was sick of how regular acne wash made my skin feel stripped and seemed to kind of almost make it worse. This actually balanced my skin wonderfully. My skin is not tight after I've rinsed it and it isn't greasy later on. My breakouts seem to be under control. I moisturize after with argan oil and my skin looks better than it has in years. Smells great, like lemongrass and sunshine. Will definitely purchase again.

Best all around, gentle yet effective, cleanser!!

I've been buying this cleanser for years. My skin is sometimes oily, dry, pimply, etc. ..it has its good days and it's bad days. I have tried so many cleansers- my dermatologist told me its best to stick with one cleanser because switching can irritate your skin- this cleanser was it! It effectively gets rid of all of the oil, dirt, makeup, & toxins from the day with ease, while being gentle and not ripping your skin of its natural benefits!

A gentle cleanser that lasts forever!

This was my go-to cleanser for YEARS. I have oily, acne-prone skin and although I can't say this product improved my skin, it definitely was gentle enough to remove all of my make-up (even water-proof mascara) without stinging my eyes or irritating my skin. The amount of product that you get in the 16 oz. goes a long way! All you need is a dime-sized amount of the product to wash your entire face. I am currently experimenting with other cleansers but I will keep this on my favorites list for sure!
