I was recommended this by a skin care clerk at Mecca and so I got a sample tube and basically I hate the smell. It's tolerable but it just doesn't appeal. It does a great job though. I have oily skin and this left my skin perfect. It did a really good job. I'm currently mixing up between this, Aesop and Kate Somerville for my go to cleanser.

I really like this cleanser. Someone below commented that it has an 'awful' baby powder smell, which made me laugh as that is one of the things I love about it! I use it in the morning in the shower (use Emma Hardie Moringa Balm in the eve to take off makeup) and it is quick and leaves my skin balanced and smooth. I have rather oily skin and this takes care of it. I'm surprised it is recommended for anyone with dry skin however, because I can imagine it might dry those ladies out a bit. Two gripes though - it is very expensive and I would prefer it if it was in a plastic bottle.

I expected much more of this product being that it's a doctor's name. This stuff left my skin so tight and dry. The smell is so strong and u put the product on ur face for a whole 8 seconds and then it's down the drain. What a waste. Plus this stuff gave me an allergic reaction. Hated it. Pricey is not always better!!!!

This had an awful+intense chemical Johnson Baby Powder smell. Skin felt tight and dry whenever I used this gel cleanser, not comfortable. Can't believe this is for dry and aging skin!

Gave me a horrid rash of pimples where I had none. I had a good run with my excellent Shiseido foaming cleanser until I switched to this. The price of this is worth two tubes of Shiseido's. Never again. Took it back to the store to return.

Take heed! Do not tempt fate, u have been warned!

I love Dr. Perricone products. Most women get use to paying a lot for skincare products that don't really do much. his products really do work. This cleanser is great, and really does improve the look of your skin.

This smells like something you would find at the Dollar Store. I bought it in a kit from Sephora but would NEVER buy it again. I prefer a higher quality of cleanser. It says all the right things on the bottle, but acts more like it Palmolive Dishwashing Soap!

I typically expect cleansers to leave my skin feeling lightweight and squeaky clean. However, the cleanser doesn't leave my face feeling that way. In fact, I felt as if it had only cleaned the very top surface of my skin and not deep down to the pores. I continued to have break outs. any drugstore brand cleanser that I used was much better than this.

Purchased this in a kit from TSC and promptly returned it for a refund. It's detergent and fragrance. It's supposed to be for dry, sensitive skin. I really expected more from a high priced product that's made by a Doctor. He should know better, SLS and frangrance is the worst thing for sensitive skin.
Besides drying and irritating my skin, the smell of baby powder was overwhelming.
The only thing I liked in the kit was the face finishing moisturizer.
