Drys out my face.
Sampled

I love the texture and the smell of this product, and it does the job. It leaves my face feeling clean but even more dry than usual.

Excellent For Sensitive Or Dry Skin!
Sampled

I found this cleanser extremely gentle on my sensitive skin. It didn't necessarily produce any dramatic improvement, but it did keep my skin clear and relatively soft, had a light scent, and the sample size I got in my box has been perfect for traveling with.

Good Cleanser
Sampled

This cleanser was GREAT. Had a very nice, clean smell, and left my skin feeling very soft and clean. I also liked that you just have to pat it dry as oppose to rinsing it off.

Not sure how I feel
Sampled

I did like the smell and overall it seemed to cleanse well. However, it did not work with my Clarisonic at all. It's a very thin consistency, almost like water. No matter how careful I was, it was always running in my eyes or mouth. For the price, I'm not sure I would purchase this product.

Clean feel
Sampled

I really love this face wash! It's not harsh on your skin and I feel like it's made my eyelashes straighter which is strange but I feel like this is the only thing it could be. The only reason I'm giving four stars is because I don't like the baby powder smell of it.

Better for oily skin
Sampled

This is a great product, but not for dry and/or sensitive skin. My skin gets VERY dry during the winter, so this product makes the dryness even worse. It did help maintain breakouts though. I couldn't let it go to waste, so I gave it to to a friend - She has oily, acne-prone skin and she LOVES this product.

Light and refreshing
Sampled

I've actually used this sample for about a month now and its excellent for light cleaning. I wouldn't recommend or expect anyone to assume it will remove makeup, but I usually use a separate towelette for that beforehand. I have quite sensitive skin and this doesn't seem to have dried it out or affected it. I love it for the mornings after I've just woken up.
