I bought this hoping it would be similar to the Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel as i had run out and wan't able to get more. This seemed like a cheap alternative. I was very wrong. It feels very odd when it goes on and turns into a milky wash too quickly. You also have to use a lot in order to get it to go on. It just doesn't feel like it is cleaning your skin! I do not have sensitive skin and never have an issue with products, but this (despite saying it is hypoallergenic) made me come out in a rash! My face is all bumpy after using it for a week. It is now banished to the back of my cupboard and I have bitten the bullet price wise and ordered more Dermalogica. If you a re looking for a good cleansing product I recommend that one instead!
Seems like it works well enough but it STINKS like I sprayed perfume on my face. pass.
I bought this trying to economise after using Shu Uemura's incredible cleansing oil - the green one - and hoping that this would be similar but cheaper
It's not and although I'm glad I tried it, I've got almost a full bottle left which will only get used in an emergency now.
Unlike most oil cleansers, the instructions say to apply to a damp face, which as far as I can see defeats the purpose of it being an oil as it immediately turns milky.
I've tried applying it dry, but really, I hate the smell and the texture is just like glue (as is the colour). Just a really unpleasant cleansing experience for me. I'd rather use a proper cleansing oil rather than this gel stuff.
UGH! This stuff made my chin and forehead break out so badly. I have mild acne, but this made me break out like crazy in spots I usually don't. I think it was the fragrance in it, which is a shame. Oh well, onto the next product.
This cleanser is nothing short of miraculous for me. I have oily but easily dehydrated skin, and most foaming cleansers irritate me and leave my skin flaky and parched. On the other hand, cleansers toted as being hydrating and non-irritating (e.g. Cetaphil) do nothing to remove my makeup and leave an off-putting film on my skin. This manages to avoid both issues! It starts off as a gel but quickly transforms into an oil, whisking away every last trace of makeup. It leaves my skin feeling super smooth, but not unclean or greasy in the slightest. It also does not irritate my eyes one bit! I noticed that oil production is greatly reduced after using this, I think the rosehip oil in it balances my skin. I highly recommend for all skin types.
I love this cleanser. I need to use an oil based cleanser in the evenings because I use an oil based sunscreen. I've tried traditional cleansing oils--Shu, Philosophy, and Josie Maran, but they all were somewhat drying and slightly irritating. The Boots cleanser is gentle, removes all my facial make up and sunscreen, rinses clean, plus it's inexpensive. It does have a strong fragrance, which I don't mind, but some might find it to be a problem. This has become a staple for me.
I love this product. I received it in a swap from another MUAer and I'm in love. It makes my skin feel so clean and yet not dry in the slightest. The scent is lovely and it really does make my skin look beautiful! At £9 it's not the cheapest cleanser but a bit goes a long way and with a No. 7 voucher it's very reasonable. Can't wait to try some of the other products in the Beautiful Skin range!
Wow, this is good, smells beautiful, makes my skin feel clean yet not dried out. Only used it twice but I am hooked already , I like the packaging and I would definitely repurchase.
Really lovely cleanser. The smell is lovely. It cleans and brightens skin and makes it soft. Really like the gel feel to it. Good price.
I love this cleanser! I was using Neutrogena wipes and a foaming cleanser for summer, but noticed that it was too drying for winter. I picked this up at Target and I love it. Seems to get my makeup off, and doesn't break me out, so that's great. My skin feels soft and not at all tight after washing. The only strange thing is I'm not quite sure how much I'm supposed to be using, and when it's done cleaning. Minor quibbles - I've already repurchased.
