Perfect for Sensitive Skin
Purchased

I love, love LOVE this cleanser! I have very sensitive skin, and am constantly looking for gentle, effective cleansers. This one leaves my face very clean without drying or irritating! It is very effective at removing all traces of makeup. I have purchased this again and again. You owe it to yourself to try this! A little goes a long way, so it's also economical to use!

Perfect for sensitive skin

This product is awesome and just as the description says, “gentle is the name of the game". It does not leave my skin dry or irritated.

Gentle and Effective
Purchased

I've tried a lot of "gentle" cleansers that don't end up doing anything for my combo skin, but this has worked really well. I used to try and strip out all the oil and use a heavy moisturizer, but that would just make me oiler during the day, so I turned to this because I heard good things about Paula's Choice. My skin is much happier and I get less breakouts after using this.

They changed the size :(
Purchased

Been using this product for a few years now and just received a new bottle in the mail to discover it went from 16oz to 8oz for the same price, I'm so sad :( will definitely be considering something else when I'm out, the value just isn't there like it was before.

Great cleanser... Smaller size
Purchased

Face wash is great! I bought it months ago and thought it was a great product and worth the price, I reordered it last week and when it arrived realized it was now half the size for the same price. I though it was a mistake.. But it wasn't! Probably won't buy this again due to the cost and size ratio.

Love this cleanser!!

I purchased the entire Skin Balancing Skincare set early last summer. I absolutely LOVE this light, creamy cleanser. It doesn't lather up or get sudsy in any way, but after using it, whether with my bare fingers, a washcloth or my Clarisonic, my skin feels so soft and comfortable. In no way does this dry my skin or make it feel tight. I even used it through the cooler months because I liked it so much and didn't feel like it was only for oily skin. I honestly think this cleanser would work well with ANY skin type. Please don't hesitate to try it. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a baby soft face after cleansing.

Purchased by accident....not such a bad thing!
Purchased

I didn't meant to buy the cleanser, I wanted to get the toner and when this came I figured "what the heck...I'll try it" I really like it and would recommend to others. This doesn't dry my skin out at all and I feel squeaky clean after I get done using it.

Wonderful for combo skin

This is another that worked better for my son(teenager) than it did for me. His skin looks fantastic. I didn't really like it for mine but instead of judging it on that I'm rating this on how nice it is on my sons skin. If you got more for your money I'd probably continue to purchase but there's effective cleansers that cost less and you get more cleanser in a bottle.

Awesome!
Purchased

This cleanser is AMAZING! My skin has a bad habit of being super oily halfway through my day which causes my makeup to bunch up and smear and do all sorts of tricks. I washed my face with this as soon as I received it this morning and my makeup has stayed on all day, even through work! I definitely recommend it if you have super oily skin, and I definitely recommend it if you're like me and have troubled oily spots on your T-zone and your chin!
