This product is very refreshing to use. Sometimes you get products that are harsh and heavy on the skin. You feel very relaxed and fresh after using.

Drying!
Sampled

I did not like this. I felt like it both dried my skin out and didn't clean all my makeup off at the same time. I'll stick to the oil based cleansers I've been using.

Soap free gel cleanser

I tried this cleanser and didn't love it - but didn't hate it. Left my skin feeling a bit tight. I think I will stick to my regular face cleanser - this product is not for me

Fine gel cleanser. I don't use a lot of products like this. The scent is nice and a gentle cleanser.

LOVE it!

Smells so clean and fresh, not chemical-y at all. Lathers just enough to make me feel like I've covered my whole face, and then rinses away so clean! This is important to me, because a lot of products tend to leave a slight residue or film. Will definitely purchase!

Meh

Effective enough cleanser, but nothing to rave about. I won't be purchasing in the future.

Not a scrub but did the job
Sampled

I typically buy "scrubs" for my face but I ran out of face wash and decided to give this a shot (I do tend to keep some of my samples for travel purposes :)) anyway at first I was thinking when I first put some in my hand, how will this foam up or clean my face. And wow I was shocked...took off all my eye makeup and did overdry my skin or anything. I am a fan.

eh

I was a bit disappointed when I found out that it was a gel cleanser. I suffer from oily skin and when I wash my face I like to exfoliate the dead skin cells, something I feel that this product doesn't do. Yet I tried it out and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I still prefer exfoliation to this method, but I think that it was an interesting experience to try something new.

Sensitive skin

I have super sensitive skin and am hesitant when I use new cleansers. This was amazing. Left my skin feeling clean and moisturized. And you only have to use a small amount.

Too drying
Sampled

My sensitive skin is already dry and this stuff left nothing on my face. That's not a good thing. I only tried it once and that was all I needed to know. If you have oily skin, this probably would work much better for you.
