Pretty good

If I didn't already have a regular brand that I like I might consider buying this. It felt like it wasn't getting my face super clean when I used it but I noticed that I got a lot less oily during the day.

Avene

I have combination skin so it is difficult for me to find a cleanser that doesn't leave my skin oily or dry it out. This has been working great! It left my skin feeling smooth and not greasy.

Nice and Clean
Sampled

I waited after a few uses to give this a proper review, and I would say that after a week or two of daily use, this is a great cleanser. It removes makeup well and leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean. I haven't had any additional breakouts while using it and overall enjoy it very much. The smell is ok and the consistency is lighter than what I'm used to, but it works just as it should!

Very gentle cleanser
Sampled

I love that this cleanser is soap-free. It lathers surprisingly well and doesn't leave behind a weird, filmy residue like other soap-free cleansers I've tried. It's not the best at removing eye makeup, but I thought it was effective otherwise. It also didn't make my face feel tight like other cleansers I've tried.

Great scent
Sampled

I loved the scent of this cleansing gel and I'm not surprised that it is sold out. I'm hoping to buy a big bottle soon as it's in stock.

Sticking with Clinique
Sampled

Reminds me of a Clinique gel I use. Light on sensitive skin. But I like I what I use already. If there Was a pump on the bottle I would like it more. Maybe the packaging lost me.

I'm in love! I've never woken up in the morning without visible pores! The product goes on smooth and even gets rid of stubborn smudged eye makeup. My skin has never felt so clean!
