Used strictly on face - LOVE
Sampled

To start, I have very oily skin. This product effectively tamed my skin every day I used it. For normal/dry skin types, this is probably going to be too drying, but for me it was perfect.

This is one of my favorite face washes. It's very gentle but doesn't leave my skin oily.

Got a clarisonic?
Sampled

I used this gel cleanser with my clarisonic and really enjoyed it. It doesn't get super frothy or foaming and I know that can be a deal breaker for many face wash users. I found it to be a mild cleanser but my face still felt clean after use. I would recommend it to others who use additional tools while washing their face-- it gets a nice lather but I don't think this could be achieved with hand washing.

Works great

I suffered a pretty bad breakout from a skincare product my friend talked me into. This has it cleared up within 3 days! Good to keep around if you are prone to break outs.

Perfect for sensitive skin

I have really sensitive skin, so there's not much that I can use on my face without aggravating it, but this cleanser is perfect! I absolutely love it. Must have for people with sensitive faces!!

Works for me
Sampled

I have oily skin so this product is great for me. I wouldn't use it more than once every few days though for fear of my face getting too dry.

Love this cleanser!
Sampled

I have combination skin that is acne prone along my chin and very dry on my cheeks and forehead. It's seldom that I can find a cleanser that really cleans without drying out my skin. After several washes, I can improvement in my skin. It's not drying and it thoroughly cleanses. My skin is so soft, I can't stop touching my face. My makeup looks fresher and prettier on me and I know it's being completely washed away at the end of the day. Love, love, love this cleanser.
