Great cleanser no longer a great value
Purchased

I purchased this back in June and recently re-ordered. The price was the same, so I was absolutely shocked that the bottle I received was half the size. I used to think this was an incredible bargain, being such a great product for close to drugstore brand prices. Unfortunately it's no longer a bargain, and next time I'll be rethinking whether it's really worth twice the price.

Perfect for Sensitive, Oily, Acne-Prone Skin
Purchased

It's really hard to find a cleanser that doesn't irritate my skin but that is still effective for my oiliness and acne. This cleanser does the job! Since I started using it a few weeks ago, I have noticed a big difference in my skin overall and I have less breakouts now than ever before. Love it!

Love this cleanser
Purchased

Great for oily skin. It doesn't leave my skin feeling overly dry and is great at removing all my makeup at the end of the day.

Very pleased!
Purchased

I really like this cleanser. First, the size of the product is large, so it is a good value in respect to cost. I like that it foams, and I can use it with my clarisonic brush. My skin seems to be breaking out less as well. I have been using this with the toner and gel moisturizer and have not needed a topical anti-acne product like I have in the past. I don't think it has cut down on my oiliness, but no product has ever successfully done that for me. This product line is a keeper, and I'll definitely be ordering it again.

Immediate results

After one use, I am enchanted with this product. My combination skin is a constant source of distress...acne and eczema prone. One use of this product made the difference for me. I hope it continues to keep my sensitive skin so balanced!

Love this

This is a HUGE amount of cleanser; I keep it in my shower. It feels really pleasant going on, and rinses clean as promised. I have been hearing rave reviews about Paula's Choice lately, and am jumping on the bandwagon. I really do like this cleanser, and have had zero breakouts thus far.

Great size/quality for the price!
Purchased

I was very impressed with the quality and amount in the bottle for the price I've used products much more expensive that did a lot less. Great buy!

Great for combination skin

I have always had a problem with cleansers completely drying my skin out but thankfully this has been great for getting all the makeup off and still making my skin feel refreshed. Love it!

Favorite Facial Cleanser

Awesome cleanser! Normally I don't like cream cleansers because they're too gentle and my skin doesn't feel clean afterwords. However, this cream cleanser actually makes my skin feel clean, without drying it out. Never used such a gentle, yet powerful cleanser before. My new everyday cleanser!
