The smell
Sampled

Its a body gel wash, nothing new. The smell however smells like a typical hotel body wash. I prefer something more unique

Fresh and clean
Sampled

This product was pretty nice. I definitely felt like my face was clean, but not dried out or anything. It is a pretty standard facial cleanser. I typically use witch hazel as a cleanser and I love it.

Feels clean
Sampled

I really like that the product is soap free and still takes away all the excess oil on my face. Smells good and lathers up really well. Also, the size of the sample was pretty big so I got a full weeks worth out of it.

Decent cleanser
Sampled

Nothing about this product really blew me away or anything, but it's a decent facial cleanser. I didn't find that it was too drying and it didn't make me break out, which I appreciate. I'm always nervous about that happening with any new facial cleanser. I liked that it made my face feel really clean, it might be something I'd invest in just to use on days I don't shower or for after I take my makeup off.

Strong cleanser
Sampled

This is a very strong cleanser. I imagine it could be rough on sensitive skin. It seems to strip everything from your skin leaving it very dry, so you'll need to moisturize very well after. I don't use this regularly and I am a person with very oily skin. I likely won't purchase this bc I feel like it's is TOO stripping. However, some of you may need something like this, so it could be great for some.

Great product!
Sampled

This was a nice cleanser! Not harsh on my skin at all, and no weird smells, which I've dealt with in other products. Foams up great!

good stuff!
Sampled

honestly i wasnt sure what this when I received it and had to read what other people wrote about this to get a clue. after reading up on it and thankfully beingn informed that you do have to rinse it off I am officially in love with this fash wash. I am super picky about face washes being that my skin is often bratty and prone to hormonal breakouts. my skin felt squeaky clean without feeling tight and it did a great job of removing my makeup. I also loved the fresh scent of this. would def recc checking out.
