This is a thin, lotion-y textured cleanser. It doesn't lather or foam up, which is fine with me. I was looking for something that would be gentler on my aging, acne-prone, oily skin in the dry winter months so I didn't want a lot of surfactants. At first I didn't realize this was designed to be used on dry skin, and I got frustrated by how much product I felt that I had to use. Finally figured out my best method of use - I use micellar water on a cotton round to remove eye makeup first, allow to dry, use one pump of this product to massage into my skin for a few minutes, then remove with a wet washcloth.I don't have super-sensitive skin, but this has not caused any breakouts for me, hasn't dried out my skin at all, hasn't increased my oil production, and doesn't even sting if I get it near my eyes. I wondered if it would have a citrus scent because of the fruit oils, but it does not. To me, there is not really a noticeable scent. I was very impressed that I could find this easily at Walmart and for a very reasonable price (around $8). Bottom line, I like this cleanser. It's basic, which is what I wanted. Cleans my skin without stripping but doesn't moisturize. I will probably buy again.

I read the negative/poor reviews of this product, but I am having a great experience with it so far. Have been using it AM and PM for a week with mixed results based on the claims of the product. Rating below:Hydrating/moisturizing: Solid 4 lippies, left off 1 lippie because there is probably something better out thereReduce Puffiness: 3 lippies - does seem to reduce some puffiness, but not as much as I would expectReduce Dark Circles: 2 lippies - only minimally reduces thoseAge-Related Issues (wrinkles, crepeyness, etc.) - 1 lippieIngredient Red Flags: Citrus among others but...Reactions/Redness/Irriation: 5 lippies for zero problems with my sensitive, acne-prone, oily skinPackaging: 3 lippies because it's a plastic jar and does not come with a spatula, but it's a decent size for the priceWill I repurchase?: Yes, mainly for the hydrating factor combined with zero skin reactionsTexture is thick at first, but with the heat of your finger and skin, quickly becomes softened and creamier. The blue color leaves no cast after it begins absorbing. It absorbs fairly quickly ~5 mins. So, I apply 2 layers in the PM and the 2nd layer will partially absorb right away then fully overnight. I have developed milia with other products, but I did not so far with this one. My skin really liked it and it's reasonably priced ($7-$16 depending on retailer). Scent is a barely discernible citrus/fruity.Azulene is an isomer of naphthalene which gives the cream its blue tint (derived from mushrooms, marine invertebrates and chamomile - which is where the ingredients in this product come from). Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Glycerin, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Stearic Acid, Cetearyl Glucoside, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Niacinamide, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Allantoin, Potassium Sorbate, Xanthan Gum, Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract, Sodium PCA, Sodium Lactate, Cola Acuminata Seed Extract, Azulene, Vaccinium Myrtillus (Bilberry) Fruit Extract, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugar Cane) Extract, Acer Saccharum (Sugar Maple) Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Amara (Bitter Almond) Kernel Oil, Barosma Betulina Leaf/Twig Extract, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil.

Please note that this is NOT a moisturiser. It is a chemical exfoliant, and it's a great one. It has a mixture of salicylic acid (bha) and a host of aha's (lactic acid and glycolic acid), so it will cover your bases in that sense. Great price, great value, highly recommend. If you have never used a chemical exfoliant before (they are more effective and more gentle than physical exfoliants such as scrubs), you may find you get red and your skin prickles from this, which is completely acceptable considering it has active ingredients. I would advise people to leave this on for 5 minutes and wash it off, as you may find that leaving it on will be too intense for your skin and may actually irritate in the long run. Others may be able to wear it overnight, but everyone is different. Just remember - it is NOT a moisturiser! You will need to moisturise after you use it :)

This is fine for a toner. It doesn't sting, it doesn't seem to cause acne and it's not drying. I'm not crazy about the scent but it's not bad and it fades away. What I don't like is that it leaves a slightly sticky feeling. This goes away.The price is low and I found it at Sprouts Farmer's Market. The packaging looks boring, but I have no problems with the lid, which dispenses enough product and has been working fine. While I don't notice any improvement in my skin's appearance after using it, I don't notice any worsening, either.

I really wanted this to work for me but it broke me out after first application. My skin did not feel great the next morning and I do think it feels a little greasy.
