I don't normally write reviews, but I had to on this product. I am 37 with oily/combination, acne prone sensitive skin. I have just come off antibiotics for my skin after 7 months and had 3 huge red lumps on my chin, after using this cleanser for 3 days they have gone... it is seriously amazing!
I have always had horrible skin and just about given up all hope, but now it is soft and glowing, in 3 days!!! I used this with the
Aesop B &Tea Toner and I can't tell you how much of a difference it has made. The bottles are glass and I know people have complained about it because it's difficult to use in the shower, but just put some in your hand before you get in, you don't need to take the whole bottle! I would recommend this product to anyone, it's my life saver! continued >>
This is probably the best facial cleanser I've ever tried! I haven't had a pimple ever since I used this! My oily skin is prone to breakouts, and some facial soaps that promises to keep the skin dry doesn't do it's job. This cleanser keeps my skin dry for the first few hours until my face starts oiling again (but with this cleanser, it only oils up a little! It's still tolerable). Match this up with your favorite moisturizer and you're good to go. My face is now nearly flawless. Awesome, stuff :)
UPDATE: i've been using this for a few months now and I've had pimples sometimes but they're small ones so it's fine. And only one pimple show up, never more than one on my face at a time. But I'm still going through puberty so pimples are excusable :)
Am loving this product!! Have been using it for about a month, and my skin is looking and feeling better and better each day. Just for a reference though, I have combination skin that is currently dehydrated in spots (due to winter), more on the oily side, and acne-prone (even more so because I am pregnant).
I was using a natural organic cream cleanser (like Eve Lom, but organic ingredients) but it just wasn't working for me, and this seems to be helping A LOT.
I still get that "tight" feeling after I've cleansed (which I hate) but so long as I use a toner/hydrating mist right away, followed by moisturiser/treatment the tightness goes away.
I find that a quarter to half pump is sufficient to cleanse the whole face and it definitely removes all make-up.
Only down side is the glass bottle - which is aesthetically nice to look at, but I worry about leaving it in the shower as I may drop it. I understand they use glass to preserve the product longer, so really, I don't mind, it just may bother some other people.
Overall, I would re-purchase, but I am currently sampling some of their Parsley Seed Cleanser as well.
I have used up a 200ml bottle of this and I love it! It cleanses my face without drying and dissolves the leftover mascara not taken off by my makeup remover. My skin feels soft and fresh after using it and did not leave a film-like feeling I get from other cleansers after use. For reference, I have combination skin can be sensitive and prone to breakouts. This did not break me out and I don't remember having a pimple while using this except for the odd 1 during my period. I love the packaging as well and you can buy a pump for the 200ml bottle. Will definitely repurchase this one!
I love Aesop products in that they only use natural products, also a little bit of cleanser goes a long way and gives a deep clean. I have combination skin and have had no problems with breakout or dryness from using the cleanser. Bought Amazing earlier this year (in Aus) and I asked for a pump (they will give you one if you ask for it).
I have acne-prone skin and it caused me to break out in little pimples around my chin and neck. I've never had those little pimples and it was getting horribly worse a week after using it.
It's really gentle on the skin and effectively removes my make-up and dirt and does not leave a residue. It's a great cleanser but did not work for me.
I recently sampled this product after much encouragement from the Aesop sales assistant. I wasn't sold, however she did give me quite a few cleanser samples (which lasted me a fortnight). I AM NOW AN AESOP CONVERT!
I've now been using the cleanser for a month now and I can vouch for the definite improvements on my skin. I live in the busy metropolitan and constantly reeling from the effects of pollution on my skin. Oil and grime is washed away quite easily, although for a better and deeper cleanse I use Dermalogica's Pre-Cleanse to remove my makeup. The scent is incidental, although I do enjoy its aromatherapy-like benefits.
I am of moderately oily skin and was told that the Fabulous Cleanser was in fact better suited to my skin type as reviewers found this cleanser to be somewhat drying on the face. I haven't had a problem with excessive dryness from the cleanser, in fact it's so gentle that cleansing my face in the shower hasn't left my face with a tight feeling.
Overall, price can be a severe deterrent. But I urge you to try some samples. Aesthetically, it looks pleasing on my bath counter. Would I buy this product again - YES! I feel better knowing that I'm using plant-based ingredients good for me and my face, AND the environment!
I tried this cleanser after had hered that it was very good. But unfourtunately it doesn't work well for me,i fell that it was very troublesome when pouring out the cleanser coz it doesn't have a plum and my face started to breakout more.But can't denied that its smell great.
This was passed on to me from a friend as it caused her to break out in little pimples. I love the scent and the dark amber glass bottle, but it is rather heavy and slippery to handle when your hands are wet. All was great for the first week or so as my face felt cleansed but not taut, but to my horror, I started to break out around my nose and forehead area as well. I wished this worked for me as my face felt wonderful after using it, but it didn't. The rest of it has since been relegated to a pricey but fantastic-smelling body wash.
I love this cleanser, it quite nice for combination or oily skin, I have used two bottles of 200ml, it can remove makeup and helps balance the skin, only the package is not good I have to put it in some other container
