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.

Great for summer, not great for midwest winters.
Sampled

I started using this product at the gym after my workouts because it fit nicely into my bag. As it's now wintery and dry in the midwest I'm not sure I'll be able to use it as much, but I'll definitely come back to it in the summer!

This feels great on the face and really feels like it is getting rid of all the make-up at the end of the day

Refreshing gel cleanser
Sampled

This cleanser is perfect for hot Florida summers. It keeps the skin sufficiently moisturized but still feels fresh. I wouldn't use it in a drier climate or the winter months because I am not oily in those months. But for oily skin it works magic!

Cleared up my skin
Sampled

While this product was drying, it was just what my face needed. I don't use this when my face feels dry or normal, but if my face feels oiler than normal or I have a break out its a great cleanser to reset my skin. My complexion has improved since using this product

Luxurious!
Sampled

This gel cleanser takes some getting used to since it does not contain soap and does not lather on the face. Overall, it does a great job at cleaning the face from any makeup and it smells great.

Bleh!

I didn't like this what so ever. I followed the directions and used it. It made my combo skin feel sticky and not clean afterwards. Will not use or even give Way.

Lovely gentle cleanser

I've really enjoyed this cleanser. It doesn't dry out my face, but it leaves me feeling clean and refreshed. Very gentle, but works great at removing makeup, dirt and oil from my face!

Very Drying
Sampled

I have normal skin and have very few breakouts. This dried my skin out like a desert. I couldn't put enough lotion on to hydrate it afterwards. It did not take all of makeup off. Not a fan.
