I think this would be great for extra-sensitive skin. I have sensitive skin but prefer a cleansing product that is a bit stronger. I like how it has no scent, and the consistency is good, especially for being a sensitive-skin product. I am happy with the drugstore cleansers that I use; otherwise, I could consider buying this.

very interesting
Sampled

this was a very interesting and different product to use. it did make my face tingle a bit, which made me feel like it was working...but afterwards i still wasn't too convinced that my face was clean. maybe it's a mental thing. it is very gentle, though, and my skin felt very soft after.

Feels Good but Not Effective
Sampled

I love the idea of a gentle way to remove makeup from my sensitive skin. While the idea behind this is good and it did not irritate my skin, it also did not do a great job of removing makeup, particularly eye makeup.

Nice Product

I loved how my face felt after using this! I too am a person with sensitive skin and was bummed when my go to cleanser was discontinued. I am happy I found this for my new replacement and the price is great!

Actually hurt

This stuff actually hurt my skin. It didn't take off all my makeup and my skin burned afterwards and turned red.

not as good as wash-off cleaner
Sampled

YMMV, but I don't like leaving residue, even moisturizing residue, with the same lotion that I used to clean my face. I don't feel clean after using this, and it doesn't do as good a job as using wash off cleaner, and isn't as convenient as cleansing wipes.

Nice gentle cleanser
Sampled

Let me start off by saying I did not use this as directed, i.e., putting it on and wiping it off without using water. I'm just not a fan of products like that; something about not rinsing just doesn't make me feel like my skin is really clean! That said, even when used with water, this is still a very nice gentle cleanser. I probably wouldn't recommend it at the end of the day for removing a face full of makeup, but as a morning wash on skin that just needs a light refresh it's quite nice. Likely will not purchase only because I already use Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser and am very happy with it.

Nice but not for me
Sampled

My Mother actually took this product and used it and she liked it. She has pretty sensitive skin and when she used it she liked it. It didn't tingle or make her skin itch. And it didn't make her break out either.

Awesome cleanser for sensitive skin!!!
Sampled

I loved this cleanser. My skin is super sensitive and reactive, so I'm constantly looking for products that work. This product worked really, really well for me. It left my skin feeling clean, hydrated, and best of all not irritated. This is definitely something I will purchase. Thanks Birchbox for an excellent product1
