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.
I have VERY oily skin and this is the only cleanser that has helped reduce it. I thought for a long time that I needed to eradicate the oil in my skin but I actually learned that getting rid of the oil will actually make it my skin go into overdrive in the production of it. This cleanser removes the excess oil, but not more than what is needed, leaving a nice matte finish afterwords. I use it twice a day and I can definitely feel the difference when I don't use it.5
I received a sample of this in the cleanser discovery kit and was not overly impressed. I have naturally oily skin and problems with blackheads in my T zone. This cleanser has a slight medicinal smell but not overpowering. It has a nice feel and lather, but I found that I had more breakouts when using this product, my blackheads looked more prominent and I felt more oily by the end of the day. Just not the right product for my skin type.3
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!5
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.4
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.4
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.3
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.4
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.5
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.4
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.5
