Love It
Sampled

Was introduced to this line for the first time - love it. The sample worked great for on my oily skin but was too small. Eventually purchased the full size. Will definitely be buying more.

Took this on vacation
Sampled

Took this little sample to Dominican Republic and loved the way this made my face not too dry and not too oily. For reference, I have dry skin immediately after I wash my face then after 3 hours the oil on my face just keeps creeping up .

Liked it
Sampled

I really liked the way this cleanser made my skin feel and it smells pretty good too. However, I have oily skin and this cleanser dried my face out after a few days of using it morning and night.

Great cleanser for sensitive, oily skin
Purchased

Used in conjunction with the toner and lotion - this was a great option that reduced oil and breakouts without freaking out my sensitive skin, especially when the weather was very dry.

Not bad
Sampled

I'm use to a cream based cleanser so I felt that this was a little drying on my face. Overall it wasn't bad. It did the trick but it didn't remove eye make up.

Dries Skin Out
Sampled

Cleaned well but stripped my face of ANY natural oil, dried my skin out. My face felt tight after use as well, additional sign it was way to harsh on my skin.

A must-have!
Sampled

I am buying this product from just using the sample. I enjoy how it is gentle enough to use everyday. Does not leave my skin too dry like other cleaners tend to do, it is perfect for my skin type (combination + some blemishes). I also enjoyed it's smell :)

The first time I've used I felt my skin turning silk! It's a great cleanser for people like me, with delicate skin. Super recommend. For sure I'll purchase it again!

This is different to use compared to other cleansers. Its a gel rather than a bubbly soap. It takes some getting use to, but it did its job!

face felt really tight
Sampled

I like the texture and how it feels while washing your face, but immediately after, my face felt really dry and tight. Pro: non-irritating, Con: drying.
