I really wanted to like this but this is nothing but an overpriced average cleanser. I am used to using cleansers that are double the size of this at the same price or less. It foams well but I dont really feel clean after this so is probably better for normal-dry skins. I did not see any brightening action either. This cleanser is virtually exactly the same as Vichy Pureté Thermale Purifying Foaming Cream Cleanser, however the vichy leaves me feeling cleaner. This is no doubt gentle and the quality of ingredients is very high, there is nothing to dislike about this really however at the price it retails at its not worth it. This is just a basic cleanser, nothing more. I felt that the Kiehls Photoage cleanser is probably the only cleanser I have used where afterwards I thought yep, this is definitely brightening. I received the full size gratis and I'm glad I didnt pay for it!
