Not for me.

This was for oily skin. I am combination so that's why I won't be purchasing.

Treat yourselves
Sampled

This is so fresh smelling, and if you are a drug store shower gel gal like I am, let me encourage you to treat yourself to this. It honestly isn't much more, and gives that extra boost in the morning. It helps that I love everything French, and I'm sure some of you do, too.

Harsh on my skin
Sampled

I put this on my arm. After I washed it off, my skin was red and felt irritated. I did not try it on my face.

Nice!

I like this product because it does not strip your skin. I use with a towelette and ash my face and it removes everything even mascara. You don't have to scrub just use a gentle touch and your face is clean then rinse and your face feels moisturized and soft.

AMAZING!

This is an amazing makeup remover. I have other products I use to take off my face makeup but I always go to the cleansing gel to take off my stubborn mascara!

Gentle as silk
Sampled


This cleanser is truly so gentle yet effective. I used it during one of my worse breakouts this year and it was gentle and allowed my face to heal. Other cleansers can be so harsh they only irritate acne and make my face worse. I was so happy to use this cleanser, a little goes a long way! Gentle enough to use day and night, leaves your skin silky smooth.

Decent cleanser, not for me though
Sampled

I liked the cleanser as far as getting my skin clean and fresh, but the smell was lacking. It smelled like hand soap that you can buy at any box store so it didn't really appeal to me on that level.
