This product is an amazing product! I have tried many different gel cleansers, for my acne prone, senestive and combo skin. I like this product because it cleanser without stripping my skin.Its a gel texture with a herbal scent (a little similar to Cetaphil), which one overcomes eventually! I bought it on sale for $8.50, which isn't bad compared to Vichy, La roche Posay etc.
But this is not a makeup remover! If you use heavy foundation makeup, you neet a good makeup remover. I myself, am I person who uses very light makeup because my skin reactive to many makeup products on the market.
Hence, I can help my skin to stay "calm" by using products that doesn't irrate it, such as this product.
I was in desperate search for a new cleanser after the clarisonic made my skin freak out (severe irritation on my cheeks). I tried so many cleansers, creamy cleansers, bars, exfoliant cleansers. I wanted something simple that wouldn't clog my pores and would clean gently yet effectively. I purchased on a whim seeing as I had nothing to lose but $8.50 for the bottle.
I am so impressed with this cleanser. It foams up nicely and feels so soft on the skin, your fingers just glide over the face. Like another reviewer said, it doesnt have anything irritating in it! I usually get some kind of stinging from gel cleansers (which is why I prefer to use a creamier cleanser, but often get clogged because of that). I thought the stinging meant its cleaning better, FALSE. I always removed my makeup first with coconut oil and a dry wash cloth. I would never use a face wash to remove my makeup, that's asking for trouble! Especially after using coconut oil to take off makeup, there's no looking back.
A simple gel cleanser that doesn't sting your face and leaves it clean and soft, ready for your next skin care steps.
I'm surprised there are not more reviews for this product. This is a truly terrific cleansing gel. It is not for dry skin, but works so well for other skin types, particularly combination/oily. It foams up nicely, has a nice fluffy lather, it's very light but still thorough, feels wonderful on the skin and rinses off totally clean.
No film, no residue, no breakouts, no dryness. Such a nice product, and one of the few 'natural' products that contains absolutely no irritants such as essential oils and other fragrant materials. Most natural products are a scam: they contain tons of irritants. It is simply not true that natural ingredients are always better and more gentle for your skin than chemical ones.
This cleanser is also affordable and has lovely packaging with an easy flip-top. Sometimes it's on sale (right now it's 50% off I think so it's like $8.50!). I just ordered a few bottles to stock up. It's smaller than her other cleanser bottles so it's easy to travel with.
For those of you thinking of ordering from PC, I'd suggest ordering about 5 samples of each product you want to try because 1 or 2 just isn't enough to see how your skin is really going to react. It's not expensive at all this way. I do that all the time with PC stuff.
I ordered the sample of Earth line toner and cleanser with high hope that it would help my acne-prone, some whiteheads and combination-more to oily skin. The Cleanser has gel and light texture and herbal scent and i don't think it cleans make up thoroughly. It does not foam and like they said, it's like a snail trail. I'm not sure the cleanser or toner that broke me out with some medium size cyst, but i actually hope to love this like i love BHA 2%. I feel that Skin balancing cleanser will work better to clean oily skin (tried the sample before). Will switch back to Stiefel acne aid or skin balancing cleanser when there is promotion.
I have oily, sensitive skin with (if not treated right) some rosacea. My skin dries out from most foaming cleansers, so I prefer a non-foaming one (to remove with a muslin cloth). But when I cleanse in the shower it is easier to use a water soluble cleanser, so I am still looking for that perfect one.
This is not perfect, but good enough. I have used it during my holidays in Greece to remove my sunscreen and it worked fine. Now I use it about once or twice a week and that is okay too. But it is too drying to use every day. So I finish the bottle and maybe will buy again.
I've been using this cleanser for almost a year now. I absolutely love it. Even though it is not fragranced, it has a very subtle herbal smell that I find to be pleasant. It lathers just enough to my tastes, and it gets off all my face makeup (not mascara, I use something else to remove that). It washes clean and never strips my face of moisture. My face just feels clean and refreshed after I use it. I'll repurchase a thousand times over.
LOVE this cleanser! It's the only one I can use for taking off makeup and thoroughly cleansing my oily but very sensitive skin. It doesn't sting at all if it gets into the eyes, and rinses clean. I use a good quarter-sized dollop, and sometimes rinse & repeat (if I've worn heavier makeup that day). It never irritates or dries me out. Some have called it "slimey" but I'd say it is simply a nice gel texture that lathers nicely as long as you wet your face first and use enough water. I've repurchased this one many time, and will continue using it (along with its companion toner, which is also very soothing).
Sooo slimey, like washing in snail trails. And ugh the taste of this: if it gets close to your mouth, made me gag...and it doesn't go away. It actually made me feel like I was going to yak and I am not prone to that. Also not sure it takes off my makeup that well but I do oil cleanse first however some residue remained anyway so did it do ANYTHING at all besides make me feel sick?
I would never subject a poor baby to this stuff as it says on the bottle. If it ever got close to their poor mouth, they would be screaming!
I recently ordered this cleanser online after reading all the great reviews and unfortunately it wasn't meant for me. I have only used it twice and i had to stop because it dried the hell out of my face! It was so bad, I couldn't even wear foundation for the next couple of days because my skin was so flaky. It actually made my skin burn and turn red, especially my lips. I couldn't imagine using that on a babys face... seriously, safe for baby too? I don't think so....
I was expecting a lot more from a cleanser made from a lady whose life revolves around skin care! I don't recommend this cleanser.. Now I have to pay for it to get shipped back to get my refund.
I found it interesting that they wouldn't add my review to the website either. It said it had to be approved before it would be posted, that's so shady!!
This was just way too much of a hassle.. booo
I started using this a little over a month and a half ago along with the other products from the Earth Sourced line, and I loved them. They were gentle, almost completely natural, and left my skin feeling soft and healthy. I used to have very bad acne and went on medication to help. When my skin cleared, I went off the medication and haven't needed it since. Now, after using this cleanser for over a month, I have small bumps on the sides of my cheeks and my skin (especially my nose) is very red and constantly flaky. I think for less sensitive skin, this would be a great skincare system, but after a while I feel as though this cleanser is a very expensive, mostly natural, plain old cleanser. Not bad, but not good, for me at least.
