Perfect for washing off the day!
Sampled

I love this wash, it keeps me feeling so clean no matter what the world has thrown at my face during the day. I like to use it at the end of the day to feel clean before bed. Makeup, sweat, dirt or grime - even paint! comes off super easily and I feel clean. The smell isn't favorable, but it only lasts until the rinse-off, so I can handle that.

just an an average cleanser
Sampled

Nothing more fancy than an average cleanser. It did the job, but you can get the same result for much cheaper at a drugstore.

Good cleanser but dried out my skin!
Sampled

I was looking forward to trying out this product since I heard it can help oily/acne-prone skin types (which I am). It feels really good when you rub it into your face. You have to remember that you need to wash it off too. However, it makes my skin feel dry and tight after I do wash it off. I immediately apply my moisturizer and then my skin is fine, but if you don't have super oily skin, keep your moisturizer handy after you wash off the product! Have only used it twice so far but I'm enjoying it!

Good stuff!
Sampled

I have oily skin/sensitive skin and am always incredibly hesitant to put ANYTHING new on my face that I think may cause trouble. I was very weary at first with this product, but dove right in and it was great. It did not break me out (phew) and did it's job. It wasn't life changing for me, since I already have a product that does this, but it opened the doors to oils for me.

Nothing Special
Sampled

For me, I prefer a facewash that I can really feel working. This product was too gentle for me to feel like it was having any effect. For someone who prefers a gentle facewash, this might be a good product.

Expected More ...
Sampled

Overall the cleanser was just okay. It didn't wow me. I have oily/combination skin and this cleanser just didn't perform the way that I expected. I still felt the need to cleanse my skin with a stronger cleanser afterwards. I would recommend this for someone with normal or even dry skin. It just wasn't a hit for me. One thing that I loved about it was the smell! It was a clean, light floral scent.

Harsh on skin

Very harsh cleanser. Very drying and had a very chemical non natural smell. Do not use if you have dry skin!

I like this cleanser. It does need to be rinsed off and it isn't very good for dry skin. I do like it but it's no one of my favorite cleansers.
