awesome value
Purchased

I did not expect the bottle to be as big as it is so this is really a great value! I liked that it didn't have any overpowering scent, washed off clean and didn't dry my face out.

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!

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.

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!

Very pleased!

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.

Fresh and clean

Great product! Doesn't over dry my skin. I use it with my clarisonic and my face feels fresh and smooth after. The bottle lasts me almost 10 months, I just put a dime size amount on my clarisonic and go!

Great Product
Purchased

I have been searching for a cleanser to help with my oily-skin and this has really been great so far! I purchased the full-size and I can't say enough about how huge this bottle is, it is a really great price for how much product that you get. If you don't have oily-skin I could see how this cleanser could be drying, but if you follow up with toner or moisturizer it is really great.

Great

As described, this cleanser clears off all the gunk and does not make my skin feel super dry after. I've only used it a few times, but it is awesome so far. I think I may convert to the paula's choice brand.

Liked it but broke out :(
Purchased

I really liked this cleanser and hoped to add it to my morning routine but unfortunately, after a short time using it I had some sort of reaction and broke out. The same thing happened with the SB toner, so I'm not sure if there's an ingredient in both that my skin doesn't like. However, it really did reduce the oil on my face and I love PC products as a whole. In fact, I use quite a few of them.
