Surprised
Sampled

I was pleasantly surprised by this product. I was hesitant to use it because it was a gel. I always worry that they will dry my skin out. But it didn't. It cleaned my skin very effectively and didn't leave my skin dry. If I didn't already use a product I loved, I would consider buying it.

Great smelling and refreshing
Sampled

I was a little stumped when I got this in my box, since it's described as being best for oily or blemish prone skin and I have neither of these at all. The opposite actually. However, I was pleantly surprised that the product still was really pleasant. I love the clean smell probably more than anything. It has a nice lather and works well as an everyday cleanser.

Nice cleanser
Sampled

This does the job, I don't know that it is any better than anything else, but gets the makeup off and leaves my face feeling clean.

ok
Sampled

Yes it smells and feels like soap when i use it. I don't mean it in a negative way though. I like the smell and the color looks kinda cool. But it does not give me a refreshing feel after i washed my face with it. So it is ok but not very impressive.

Good product
Sampled

I enjoyed my sample of this product but was not blown away. The fragrance was nice but not amazing. Maybe it would be really great for someone with really sensitive skin.

Facewash
Sampled

I did enjoy using this face wash. It left my face feeling very clean. I did notice my face was a little dry afterwards, I think that varies with face type. Its an awesome travel size to take for overnights.

Luxe, no-fuss face wash
Sampled

Works very well at removing makeup and end-of-the-day oils. Non-drying but not very moisturizing. I would recommend this to anyone who has had adverse reactions to typical cleansers.

Left skin a little dry
Sampled

This would be an okay product for those with oily skin, but I found it a little too drying for my combination skin. Perhaps I'll give it a try again in summer when I need more oil control.

LOVE!

I absolutely love this wash! It gets rid of everything on my face without making it feel tight. A little goes a long way as well, which increases the possibility of purchasing in the future. Great product!
