I used this cleanser for like a week. I really like it. It is gentle and leaves my skin feeling really fresh. The scent it kind of just blah but it doesn't smell bad. I have sensitive skin and this was great for it.

Great face wash
SampledPurchased

I absolutely love the way this face wash leaves my face feeling smooth, clean and untouched by chemicals. It is an obvious difference from typical soap washes. I was skeptical at first: no soap?? But it really is excellent.

Removes makeup and doesn't feel tight after

I was skeptical at first but it has a very light feel and foam but removed my make-up and didn't have my face feeling too dry after.

Not for me But Great for my Teen
SampledPurchased

This product over dries my skin but works great for my 14 year old son. He does not have a major skin problem but had some shine. Saw a major reduction on the shine on his face.

great
SampledPurchased

Smells good. I don't understand the science/chemistry behind soap/soap-free but this certainly cleans my face. No break outs or irritation. I think it smells nice as well. I don't wear a ton of makeup but this seems to take it off just fine.

Good cleanser, but not the best for me
Sampled

This product is very nice, but might be better for someone with oily skin (mine is normal/dry). It left my skin feeling clean and clear, but a little dry. I did like how it removed makeup very well.

Made my face break out
Sampled

I was not too impressed with this product sample. For the most part I have pretty clear skin and I found that after 4 or 5 days of use, I was starting to get a heavy break out on both of my cheeks. I can't say with 100% certainty that my breakout was caused by this product but it was the only thing about my face routine that I had switched at the time. I did enjoy scent and the feeling of it on my skin just not the after effects.
