I was recommended this when I started to find the tea tree wash a little drying. This is very gentle and goes cleanse well without drying. I have been using the line for the past two weeks and my skin is looking more radiant. A separate eye makeup remover is needed, like most cleansers, but this is a definite re-purchase.

Removes makeup but doesn't help my acne. It's a very gentle cleanser, doesn't feel refreshing or exfoliate, so there's nothing special about it.

It is my first bottle. I've been using this for a few weeks. I bought it because the body shop official website suggested me after run a few online tests. It was just basically answering some questions about your skin condition.

I like the transparent color and the cooling effect after using this. I have combination skin with few red-ish and black-ish acne scars. And now the color of the scar is getting faded away by day. Sometimes I have a dry skin after washing, but then I guess it's because my face is still adapting to new environment (I just moved from tropical place into scandinavian country). I overcome this by applying The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner after washing.

One thing I dislike is the fragile bottle lid. It slipped out of my hand once, fell to the floor, and now i have slightly broken lid.

I'm on to my second one now and I'm still as impressed with it. I easily get spots and blemishes but have barely gotten any since I started using this. As for oil control, dunno. It removes all my makeup, including water proof eyeliner, without any hesitation. Can be a bit drying but since I always moisturise immediately afterwards this is not a problem to me.

The only thing I dislike is the snap cap opening thing which is very hard to open and feels like you're gonna break the entire thing every time you open it.

It deeply cleanses my face, shrinks my spots and my spots don't look as red or as irritated as they were before I cleansed.

I would definitely repurchase.

I was having a very bad skin time, with a lot of acne all over so I decided to buy this without expecting a lot. First I bought one of those travel sized bags that contain this cleanser, the toner, day cream and night cream, just for trying soon as I finished the bottle of toner and cleanser went back to buy the full size. After just a few days I saw a difference in my break outs. My acne cleared (not completely but I don't expect that as the only thing that works for me is trevissage pills) a lot, the active breakouts reduced and I wasn't that shiny. This has a nice cooling effect, it leaves your skin really clean and definitely you can see a difference. Also I must say the price is fine...I got buy 2, get one free, so I picked up the exfoliator and toner...which I love.

I'm very glad I picked this line up, as my skin feels so soft, clean and with less breakouts. I can`t recommend this enough!

So far, so good. I like it. Gives my skin a cooling sensation when I use it. Although, I wouldn't use this every day since this is a clarifying cleanser. This is something you would use 2ish times a week as it can be drying. Similar to a clarifying shampoo, removes all the residue and you'd use it about 2 times a week, this is something you'd use twice weekly. Just give your skin a good massage with moisturiser to prevent the dryness. Really neat cleanser though. :)

I have very sensitive skin and trying to find a cleanser that didn't feel like acid peeling my face off has been a task. I love the body shop so I decided to try this product and I absolutely love it. I use it twice a day and my skin feels squeaky clean. I do find it does leave my skin feeling dry. I pat dry my face after washing and use a moisturiser immediately. By doing this I have lovely feeling skin very soft and clean. The smell isn't over powering and has a freshness about it. I recommend this product to people with sensitive skin who want a nice deep clean but a lovely cool feeling.

It works amazingly on my skin! It really is refreshing and leave your skin squeaky-clean with a slightly-cool-menthol feel. I use it twice a day; in the morning and at night before my bed time. I have combination skin, with excessive oil on my T-zone, and this facial wash really help me reduce the oily part of my skin. It really reduce the shine on my face during the day. And this facial wash really wash away all the dirt.

But sometimes this facial wash dried my skin even before I towel-dried it, and I don't know why. Overall, I love this product! Definitely would re-purchase it!

I think its a great product esp for those with oily skin im on my 2nd tube. I love this product it and all of the seawood collection seems to fit my skin type and smells amazing for me. However, it may leave your face a little dry afterwards which why I deducted a point.
