This product was ok, but not great enough to switch from what I already use and love.

Smells fresh
Sampled

The smell is fresh and nice, but after I used it my face felt pinched and kind of dry. Don't like it as much as my current product choice.

Fresh, Good Smell
Sampled

I like using this as a periodic alternative to my regular cleanser. It doesn't leave a film or heavy feeling after. It's pretty fresh!

excellent and gentle cleanser
SampledPurchased

I am a 60+ yr old woman with dry skin, but I am really loving this product! A little dab on the palm lathers into a lovely cleanser and leaves my skin feeling clean, removes all makeup gently, and does not leave the skin tight.
I follow with a toner, serum, and moisturizer and I'm good to go.
thanks Birchbox!

Not ideal for sensitive skin
Sampled

This product left my skin feeling greasy and not clean. I'm pretty strict about what I put on my face and I was not a fan of this.

It's okay but.. just okay.
Sampled

Didn't "Wow" me in any way -- just seemed like typical body or face wash. I first used it for my entire body in the shower... it didn't stay very sudsy for very long, and it didn't have hardly any scent. Then I used it on my face and was left with the same impression. I prefer other products that I already have to this product. Maybe it's just me...
