Nice product for the price

I like that it left my face feeling clean without drying out my skin. A little goes a long way. Nice product for the price!

Best Cleanser I've Ever Used!
SampledPurchased

I got this as a sample a few months back and have purchased it twice since then. My skin is pretty dry and I would occasionally have small break outs, but since I started using this I haven't had any breakouts! I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Also I have very sensitive skin & it doesn't bother my skin at all - just don't get it in your eyes!!!

Awesome, awesome stuff!

I love this as a cleanser, but even MORE as a makeup touch-up/remover. Even when using the toughest of eyeliner pens (Stila, I'm looking at you) just the tiniest dab on a Q-tip will remove it completely. It's soap-free, so it doesn't leave your face sticky when doing this. I do cat eyes without fear because I know if I mess up, I can start over!

Good face cleaner

This is a good product because it smells good and does a good job cleaning my face. It is a little drying. Or atleast does not moisturize my face.

Great cleanser!

Love this product! I always have a hard time finding a good cleanser for my face and this one is great! Very gentle and leaves my skin feeling fresh and smooth. Also has helped with my breakouts! Highly recommend. Not sure what others are talking about the sticky texture but I had no issue.

Good Basic Cleanser
Purchased

I think the simplicity is this cleanser and the relative gentleness. It doesn't have any special ingredients or fantastic claims. It will take of your makeup and clean your skin. Which is really all you should ask of a cleanser. Anything else is just hype - cleanser is on your face for maybe two minutes p, which is not enough time for any specialized ingredients to do the job. The only slight complaint is that it would leave my combo skin a little try in areas.

Don't use near eyes!

Removes makes up well. Can leave a bit of a sticky feel and it burns your eyes!

I wanted to try a new face wash, so I gave this one a shot based on all of the reviews.

This soap-free face wash has a wonderful light scent and lathers up nicely. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean and doesn't dry my skin out. So far, I'm very happy with this purchase!
