Clean-- and not dry!
Sampled

It's so nice to finally find a gel cleanser that doesn't dry my skin! I love to add this light cleanser into my routine here and there. It's passed the test! I feel clean and refreshed every time. My combination skin isn't left dry, itchy, broken out, or too oily. Perfect.

Good for sensitive skin
Sampled

I loved this sample! It definitely cleansed my skin, but was very gentle and left my skin feeling refreshed rather than that tight, dry feeling. I tend to get a bit red after washing as well, and this did not leave my skin looking aggravated. A great product for those with sensitive and/or oily skin.

Good sample!
Sampled

It was a nice size, and was very gentle with my skin. It cleans it very nicely. I would recommend this product to people who have sensitive or oily skin, but I don't have either.

Bought it!
SampledPurchased

I tend to have combo skin type and was unsure about what this product would do for my face. I have ended up using my whole sample and buying it from the Birchbox store! The clearance gel has worked wonders for my face that tends to be on the sensitive side. It it good enough to use daily and even if i don't use it daily, I will try to use it more often when i notice breakouts.

I love this product. It soaps up nicely and is lightweight. I've been rationing the sample because I want it to last!

Great product, but not for me
Sampled

I like the smell of this face wash and the way it easily lathers. It feels great going on my skin and washes off my makeup and the days grime easily. I don't like how much it dries out my skin. I feel like I have to moisturize more than normal after I use it. Otherwise, it's a great product.

Great Sample

This sample has lasted me a while. I alternate between this product and another product you all sent me. I am in love. I have no problem spending money on facial products. This is very reasonable priced and instant results!

Gentle Cleanser - Fantastic Smell
Sampled

I love this cleanse. It has a very nice smell and makes my skin feel refreshened after I use it. It is also very gentle and makes my skin feel soft. Will consider buying after I used up all the sample and my current cleanser.

Lovely, but unremarkable.
Sampled

This cleanser has a nice, not overpowering scent, and a light feel and lather. However, I am used to being able to rub facial cleanser all over my face, including my eyes. I made that mistake with this cleanser, and it stung my eyes like the dickens. My fault, though! It's not bad, it's not amazing. Just somewhere in the middle.
