Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Oil-Reducing Cleanser

The key to youthful skin isn’t a full-bore assault on your pores—it’s a cleansing regimen that nixes oil and impurities without leaving skin stripped or dry. Luckily, “gentle” is the name of the game with this skin-balancing cleanser from Paula’s Choice. The aloe-enriched formula creates a creamy lather to whisk away grease and prep skin for your go-to products.

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!

Best cleanser I've ever used

I have combination skin (oily in my t-zone and normal/dry everywhere else). This cleanser is really gentle and doesn't irritate my skin at all. I noticed a reduction in oil production when I started using this (and other products from the skin balancing line).

Really clearing up my skin
Purchased

I am so glad I ordered this cleanser! I've been using it for a little over a week and already I've noticed my t-zone is a lot less oily, without drying out my cheeks!

Gentle Cleanser
Purchased

This is a great option for those looking for a gentle cleanser, but I was unable to replace my daily exfoliating face wash with this for that reason. That said, it's been a great product to add to my skincare regimen.

Simple Cleanser
Purchased

I'm very pleased with this facial cleanser. It doesn't dry out my skin, isn't strongly perfumed, cleans my makeup off well, and for the price you get a ton of product.

HUGE

This bottle is so big! You get your money's worth! The lather is soft and it is non-drying on the skin. Good job again Paula's Choice!

Not disappointed!
Purchased

I was very surprised to see how large this cleanser was. I'm sure it said the somewhere but I expected it to be less than half the size, for the price , I was pleasantly surprised. Same great quality and results I always expect from Paula's choice products.

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!
