Average cleanser, strange consistency
Sampled

This is a nice mild cleanser, but it doesn't really seem like it truly cleans your face. Also, the whole "rub on and pat dry without water" routine was a bit strange...

ok cleanser

i've tried many other, better cleansers than this product. i like the gentleness but didn't feel that it thoroughly cleaned my skin.

Too Mild
Sampled

I only felt ho-hum about this product after using the sample for several days, mainly because I prefer foaming cleansers that require less product to do their job. This seemed to require too much product for complete makeup removal and reminded me a lot of the far less expensive Cetaphil.

nice feeling and effective

well dang, using this was a newsflash to me and my lack of clean skin! after using my usual make up towel remover, i used this product with some cotton balls. i was reeling from the fact of how much more makeup was appearing on the cotton ball after thinking my skin was free of it! it did leave my skin feeling fresh and hydrated.

Only okay...

I love getting new facial cleansers in my box to try out! I like this cleansing lotion but I don't love it. I have apparently not been following the directions and I rinse it off with warm water. My face doesn't feel greasy afterward but when I use my toner there is still residual from the makeup I had on appearing on the cotton ball. I like this stuff to use in a pinch but I won't be purchasing it.

Disappointing
Sampled

This product did not take off my make-up as expected. I still had to wash my face and use another make-up remover. There are much better products out there.

I really like the fragrance. It is smooth and not too overbearing.

A unique alternative for washing your face
Sampled

This is a really gentle cleanser that left my skin glowing and feel clean. It didn't seep into my eyes and burn them (so that's a plus) and it did a pretty good job of removing my non-waterproof makeup, but my waterproof mascara did not budge. Because of that, I'll probably use the rest of the sample as part of my morning routine.

Surprising...
Sampled

I was surprised at how well this product removed make-up. I felt weird not using any water though. I just didn't feel as clean.
