Not worth the hype
Sampled

I was interested in trying this cleanser because I am still searching for the perfect cleanser for me. This one was cool because it was soap free but it dried out my face too much to use often. My face did feel clean but too dry for my taste.

Nothing special
Sampled

I think I have just received so much of this type of product. It doesn't stand out as anything wow worthy to me. I was clean. Smell was fine.

Not for me
Sampled

I liked the smell, but I just felt like my skin was either over cleaned and it stripped all the oil from my face or it left a film on my face. I just didn't like the way my face felt after using this product.

Hi and Dry

I was excited to use this product. ...I really liked the fresh scent. I was extremely disappointed to find that it was extremly drying to my skin. ????

clean, but leaves skin feeling tight
Sampled

This cleanser takes all the makeup off my face, but it leaves my skin feeling super tight and dry afterwards. For reference, I'm in my 30's and have normal/combination skin. I think at this point in my life, I just need to stick to cream cleansers.

Breakouts
Sampled

I have oily, breakout prone skin (and I'm in my 50's) and this did not help one bit. My skin didn't feel as clean after using it as my current cleanser. The aging skin + oil is a definite challenge.

Cleans well
Sampled

I thought this was a nice cleanser. I only used it on my face and it seemed to do a good job. I didn't think there was anything too special about it.

Nice smell and good at cleansing
Sampled

This product has a really nice smell, and it cleanses my face well. I have been using it when I work overnight (not every day), so in not sure how drying it would be with everyday use. It does make my skin slightly dry-feeling, but that is combatted with a lotion. I would be hesitant to use it during the winter when my face is very dry.
