When I started using this, my face kept turning red, it even burned a little bit. However, as I kept using this again and again, I noticed that the redness and burning toned down a lot. It smells alright I guess, and it's kind of hard to lather around your face, but I like how it is easy to rinse this off of your skin! I have oily/acne prone skin and I think this kind of suppresses acne. After using this, my skin looks clearer. This didn't totally clear my skin, but it's a pretty good cleanser overall. The thing that surprised me about this product is the harshness. This is packaged to look like it's made for sensitive skin and it looks fairly gentle, when in reality, it's kind of harsh. I have used this for about a month, and I use this in the morning and night. I'm going to repurchase because so far, it's doing a satisfactory job, but I'll be looking around for more cleansers definitely.
I LOVE this cleanser. I ran out of my Yes To Tomatoes cleanser that I normally use (and highly recommend) and I had a Yes To order coming very soon so didn't want to buy that one. But I needed something to use in between running out and when the order shipped to my house. So I picked this up. Oh my gosh. Love. It feels amazing on your skin and after you rinse it off there is a lovely cooling sensation. It has a slightly off putting scent, but this didn't bother me that much. Didn't break me out at all (I have combo to oily skin, acne prone). Even after just a few days my skin is visibly better - smoother, smaller pores, blackheads appear reduced.
Note: no where on the package does this claim to remove your makeup, so ignore the people complaining that it didn't remove all their makeup. It's not supposed to. Get some makeup wipes
I really love this cleanser, and I will definitely be re-buying. To me, it seems pretty balanced -- natural yet has a bit of acne medicine in it. I do use a spot treatment if I see a blemish coming. I do have spots every now and then. However, for a day to day cleanser I really like it. My acne is more related to what I eat than what I put on my face, but for the last couple of months I've been thinking of not wearing makeup since my skin is looking pretty good. Overall, I really like this cleanser, but it might not be a miracle product if you have more severe acne. I like it because it is more natural than other acne cleansers. The texture of it is great too, very creamy. I can't detect a smell to it.
It leaves a film on my face. I don't like it AT ALL. It broke me out like crazy!
I was looking for an natural skin cleanser that would not break me out, but I sadly did not find it with this product. it broke me out after multiply uses, and I think it was because of the perfume that it contains. For a natural product the scent is very strong and not natural at all. The cleanser feels very creamy on the face. On the packaging it doesn't state that it will remove makeup, but if you are wondering... it doesn't do a good job at that(removing makeup)I gave it one star because I like the packaging, its simple but yet appealing. Overall I would wouldn't repurchase this product or even try finishing it. I do not recommend this product for people with sensitive skin.
if you are looking for an all natural cleanser, that is not good but great check out "ORIGINS CHECKS AND BALANCES, FROTHY FACE WASH( you can find it at Sephora)
I really really liked this product. I don't have extremely bad acne, just tough problem areas like my chin. Most drug store products I try are too harsh and drying but this cream cleanser was lovely and very nice. It helped clear up my chin without overdrying areas without acne, like my cheeks. I like the smell and consistency a lot. It's an acne cleanser, not a make up remover. Your best bet if wearing make up is to use wipes or an actual make up remover before using this acne cleanser.
This product was absolutely terrible. I have very sensitive skin, and I thought this would prevent future breakouts. Instead I woke up the next day will 1 million tiny white heads on my nose. To make matters worse, this product was over drying, and also made my chin break out. I want to continue using it, but I was too afraid that I would break out even more. I usually use a lot Neutrogena products. Their moisturizers, and make up removers are nice on my skin, but this cream did not work for me at all!
It works on me but it would dry my skin out badly. It being the winter time now, I haven't used it. My skin gets dry in the winter time and don't need this to make it worst.
I really like this product so much.... before i was using neutrogena cleanser( which comes in orange liquid), but i found out that this is a great product...i have acne prone skin and these days i have a lot of acne on my skin....but this product is really working great for my skin... it makes my skin so smooth and does not dry out my skin....i really recommend this product to anyone who has acne prone skin.
I wanted to write a review since there are only 2 reviews on here right now and I don't think they do the product justice. Of course everyone's skin is different but I enjoy this product. I've only used it a few days so I don't know about continued use but I feel like it left my skin clean and not over dried. I enjoyed the mint cooling/tingle and I like that is is a more natural product and is not tested on animals. I love natural products but I also need my products to work so if they have to use some chemicals I'm okay with it. I personally found the fragrance light and pleasant, that's why I bought it instead of the Aveeno cream cleanser I originally had in my hand. That fragrance was so strong I was worried about putting it on my face. This product has fragrance listed as the last ingredient. I my face hasn't gotten red after washing and I haven't noticed any real change in my acne but it hasn't gotten worse. I bought this specifically to use in the shower because I have another face wash I like to use when I just wash my face (no shower) but it's only available in a pack with the toner and moisturizer and I don't like the hassle of bringing it in and out of the shower each time I use it. Overall I liked this cleanser and think it serves it's purpose.
EDIT 7/1/13: I don't feel like this did anything positive or negative. I found myself reaching for other cleansers even when this was available. If I needed makeup removed I needed to wash twice or more and it didn't seem to help my spots. I'll be trying something else next time.
