Nice Enough
Sampled

It was a nice product that lathered well and left my face feeling very clean. I don't think the packaging lends itself to being marketed globally though, as it has no English on it, and no directions on the sample.

Good cleanser
Sampled

Nice basic cleanser. Cleanses without stripping the skin, foams up well. Very pleased.

Great for oily skin/dry climate! (But price is a bit much.)

This cleanser worked fantastically for me! I have oily (occasionally blemish prone) skin and just recently relocated to Colorado (DRY), so I had to change up my skin care routine without making my skin seriously PO'ed... and this facial wash did the trick. It removed makeup, oil, gunk, etc., and returned my skin to "equilibrium" without over-drying or making it feel tight or itchy. My ONLY con for this product is probably the price. I think if it were in the $12-$15 range (for a full-size), I'd be more inclined to purchase it since there are drugstore cleansers that can achieve nearly the same results. (I know, I know: French spring water is expensive.)

I like this a lot. It foams nicely and removes my caked on makeup. It leaves my face feeling hydrated and completely clean.

My new favorite thing!
Sampled

I know where I will be spending my first points! This was by far my favorite item in my September box. I have very oily skin, but I find that many cleansers dry it out and just encourage the production of more oil. I hadn't tried a soap free cleanser before and the first night I did rinse it off as I failed to follow the directions. The following night I applied and removed properly and I have already noticed a change in the feel of my skin. The best part for me is that going into the evening, my cell phone is not covered in an oil slick. Love this!

Nice Gentle Cleanser
Sampled

Got this as a sample item. I liked it as a travel item, but it's plain and simple no frills cleanser. Will stick with my AmorePacific gentle exfoliator.

Love it!

I like the smell and how it makes my skin feel. I washed my face at night and my face still felt clean and fresh in the morning

Eh

This is just ok. I don't think there's anything particularly memorable about it. I won't be purchasing it.

I really loved how soft my face was after cleansing with this! I have fairly oily skin and this product did a great job at washing away all of the oil without overdrying my skin.
