Not For Me

I wasn't a huge fan of this product. It made my face feel really tight and didn't clean as well as I'd like.

Normal cleansers with soap irritate my face, so this product was just what I needed! It did dry my face out after a couple of days, so I bought some of the toner and it's all okay now. I love how fresh my face feels.

Great cleanser

This is a great sample; the size is adequate enough for several uses so I could see how my skin reacted. This cleanser cleans really well without making my skin feel tight/dry.

I've been using this for a couple of weeks and have no complaints. It's cleansing without drying which I run on the dry side of things.

Great Cleanser

I was a little nervous about trying a new cleanser since I have such sensitive skin and thought it was weird that it is "soap free" but I decided to try it and am glad I did. This cleanser is very light and makes your skin feel great. I think because it's soap free it is better for sensitive skin because I am allergic to some soaps and didn't have to worry about it with this one.

Cleaning without drying
Sampled

I love that this cleanser cleaned my face and left me feeling really refreshed without the typical dryness and stretched face feeling of most soaps (I have dry, sensitive skin, so that was key). The consistency is great - in between oil and gel. Great light scent.

Not so gentle.

I have acne prone skin and was pretty excited to try a new face wash. I've been using it mornings and nights for about 3 days now. And my face is soooo dry. It's actually tomato red after washing and stings. Granted, I have been using a super gentle drugstore face wash recommended by my dermatologist for about a year now. That, combined with tretinoin and clindamyacin pads, has kept my skin mostly acne free for the past six months. I was hoping a new face wash would help prevent the remaining 3-4 (large) pimples I seem to get a month. But even now, after having washed my face twelve hours ago and moisturizing, it still kinds of feels tight and ouchy.
