Not for Sensitive

I love the texture of this wash - unfortunately it is very drying. Also it is irritating for because it contains spearmint, lavender, and geranium oils. This makes for a pleasant smell, but fragrance in skincare is irritating.

Bad.

This cleanser basically feels like you just used a bar of soap (which is really bad). It get's frothy, but it doesn't make my skin feel clean. Instead it makes my skin tight and dehydrated.

Caused me to break out in a rash
Sampled

This face wash was the whole reason I picked this box for October. So, you can imagine how disappointed I was when my whole face started to burn and broke out into a rash the 1st (and only) time I used it. I do not have sensitive skin and this is the first time my face has EVER reacted this way. My face burned, was bright red, and VERY hot to the touch for about 5 hours.

Too drying!
Sampled

I don't have dry skin, it's more combination (oily spots here, dry spots there-lucky me) but this cleanser was just awful.. Dry, itchy, irritated skin.
On the up side the sample size was very large and packaged well, but I would never purchase the full size of this..

This is good until you wash it off. It feels very cleansing, lathers well, scent it ok but when I washed it off if left my skin feeling like I had just washed off glue.

Read Ingredients
Sampled

This was my fault because i didn't google the ingrediants prior. I used and found it to be very drying, alkaline cleanser. Then i read ingredients. It contains spearmint, lavender, and geranium oils. Spearment is astringent too drying for me and I am allergic to lavender. Lesson learned READ before using. May work very well for others but not me

Made my face breakout!
Sampled

I was very excited to try this product but ultimately dsappointed because it made me break out. I don't typically have an issue with breakouts unless I use something that has a lot of oil in it. I discontinued and went back to my normal cleanser, which cleared my skin out.

Not for me

I received a sample of this cleanser in my birch box. I didn't care for it, and I would not buy.
