I bought this based on all of the recommendations from Youtube Beauty Gurus (of course, I'm pretty sure they were sent MT products for free), expecting it to be a miracle product. Unfortunately, it is not but it's still a pretty good daily cleanser. I am acne-prone and it didn't do anything to prevent me from breaking out and I think it is a bit too expensive.
I recently purchased this product after seeing many YouTube reviews. I have very combination skin, eczema, dry patches, oily t-zone, and hormonal breakouts. I've tried Mary Kay cleansers and I thought that they were great until now. I used the Honey Oat cleanser with my Mia and I couldn't believe how smaller my pores on my nose looked! I've always had small pores but I've always had small blackheads in them which I thought was just how it was. This cleanser took them all away! Not one left. I am amazed.
Not a great experience at all. Apart from the fact that it smells good and is quite hydrating, I can't say many good things about it.
Doesn't really effectively remove makeup. I find that when I go over my face with Bioderma afterwards, there is plenty of foundation residue on it.
It is okay. Can't say much more or less. Smells nice, cleans well, although I need to use other products to remove all eye make-up. A tiny bit drying, but my skin is quite oily and can handle it. Don't regret the purchase, but won't buy again.
This is a really great cleanser. I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin. I bought this expecting my stubborn acne to clear, which it didn't help at all. After washing redness is down a bit but as far as clearing your complexion it won't do much for that. But it is an excellent gentle cleanser and removes every ounce of make up without burning your eyes. It smells so yummy and is a lovely thick consistency. Your face doesn't feel dried out after using. I have acne so I'm still searching for something stronger to clear me up but I gave this a good review because I know it is a great cleanser especially for those of you with dry and sensitive skin. If you're looking for something to clear you up however, I don't think this is strong enough. After I find my holy grail cleanser and my acne is dead and gone i will come back to this I do really like it.
Although others have commented that this cleanser is for oily skin, it is actually specified for dry skin on the website, which is why I bought it.
What do I think of it? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I have no opinion whatsoever. It failed to make any impression on me either way. An utterly forgettable product, meek and nondescript.
I have dry-normal, sensitive skin. I hoped this really work to remove my water-resistant, but not waterproof makeup and not leave my skin dehydrated.
This didn't dehydrate my skin and lathers up VERY well - you just need a tiny amount when you wash your face.
What I disliked about this cleanser is that it didn't work to remove my makeup, although it says i should. When I tried it out at first, it looked like all of my makeup was gone. I even used some of the Michael Todd's cranberry toner on a pad and checked if there would be any makeup left on the pad - there wasn't any. However, after using only this cleanser for about 3 weeks to remove the same makeup (a.k.a. "my everyday makeup routine") my skin suddenly began breaking out a lot. Eventually, I saw that I had a lot of clogged pores and acne. My skin got better only when I began using my regular facial scrub (I had switched it out for Michael Todd's Charcoal Scrub), squeezed out the blackheads, began using one of my older 2-in-1-makeup-remover-facial-cleansers and began using Michael Todd's Blue-Green Algae Toner (love it!) again. Verdict: this doesn't remove makeup well. Sourse: all of the clogged pores after I tried to use this instead of my regular cleanser. That you don't see the makeup doesn't mean it's not there.
There are other cheaper and more effective products out - this cleanser isn't something I feel I need. It doesn't fill any function more than being something I can wash my face with in the morning, and for that I like my Nivea Gentle Foam Cleanser better - it's more gentle than the Honey and Oat Cleanser and leaves my skin with no residue.
This cleanser is aloe-based and I love it because it smells nicer and is easier to use and rinse off without the slimy feeling of glycerin-based washes. My skin looked brighter and my blemishes were less red immediately after the first use! It's extremely mild and doesn't dry me out or make me oily. This cleanser also fully removes my (non-waterproof) eye make-up thoroughly with no smudges or residue, which is nice on the days when I forget to take it off before showering.
It works well and helps to balance my skin and I've never found another cleanser that is so mild yet thoroughly cleanses my face with no drying effects. I'm not sure if it's a necessary part of the Michael Todd system but it works out a little cheaper per ounce than the Murad/Korres/Boscia cleansers I've used in the past so I did choose to continue using it. :)
I'd heard great things about Michael Todd products, and I'd seen that they were having a 25% off sale, so I decided to order a few things. I wanted to order a face mask after hearing fabulous things about it, but I decided to order a few other things as well. I have dry, sensitive skin, that is usually pretty clear with the exception of the occasional blemish, but for the past few months I'd been breaking out on my cheeks and got little bumps all over my forehead, and everything I was using was making it worse. So I ordered this cleanser because it is said to be gentle, and I can vouch for that! It's so gentle that I sometimes use it to take my eye makeup off if I'm feeling lazy, and it doesn't burn or sting. I usually moisturize after washing my face and if I forget, my skin is painfully dry, but not with this product! I forgot moisturizer, and I couldn't even tell! My skin still felt great. This product left my skin feeling so clean and refreshed. After three uses, my skin was back to being completely clear again, so much so that my family and friends even asked me what I'd been using. If you have sensitive, dry skin like me, I highly recommend this product! It is so gentle and it has completely cleared my skin!
I really disliked this product from the get-go. As someone who was used to buying drugstore cleansers, this was a significantly bigger investment. I accepted the increased in price because I thought I would be getting a superior product but this wasn't the case.
When it first arrived in the mail, the packaging had exploded all over the place, despite being wrapped in plastic wrap. I left quite a mess on the other products I ordered too. So far, I wasn't impressed.
When I first began using it, I had high hopes - these were quickly dashed. Other users reported having dry skin, and while I didn't run into this problem (I have combination, sensitive, clog-prone skin), what really bothered me was that there always seemed to be some sort of residue left on my skin when I rinsed it off!! Others reported feeling that it left their skin squeeky clean, but I there's a difference between squeeky clean and the feeling that new skin is being revealed (hint: the latter is better). I tried washing my face with one pump of soap, and washing it twice (some people say that this helps cleanse their faces better) and both methods did not succeed in removing that feeling.
The only thing I like about this cleanser is that it doesn't seem to get used up quickly! I've had my bottle for maybe around 2-3 months, and I still have a good 60% of it left (this is also post explosion from shipping). You only need a bit for it to lather up really well.
Overall, I would not recommend this product to anyone since it did not perform up to my expectations.
