This cleanser takes the form of a clear gel and doesn’t excessively foam or create bubbles. It doesn’t have smell to it either, which I love. Generally, I squeeze a quarter-sized dollop of the product into the middle of my palm, put my hands together and smooth the product all over my face. Then I add a little bit of water to my hands before I start massaging the gel against my face. This cleanser literally melts off my foundation, concealer, mascara and eyeliner — leaving my skin feeling clean and refreshed.

To use the makeup alley terminology, this is my holy grail cleanser. It removes makeup fabulously, even heavy eye makeup. It removes eye makeup better than any eye makeup remover I've ever used and as it advertises, it conditions lashes. I've noticed my lashes are alot healthier than they've ever been and lashes aren't exactly the easiest thing to moisturize and take care of. It leaves my skin feeling clean and toned without feeling dry, stripped or aggravated. After the end of a long day I cannot wait to use soy face cleanser so I can have a clean, calm and moisturized face. It simply makes my face feel good. The price isn't great, there's no getting around that, but honestly after the initial purchase and the beginning of your relationship/addiction to soy face cleanser it doesn't seem as bad. And each use doesn't require that much product so it should last a while.
It's too expensive but works wonders on sensitive and oily skin. I like the cucumber scent, and it does a great job of removing eye makeup.
The only downside besides the price, and I'm sorry for the crudeness here, is that it has the basic look and consistency of semen. It really does. I wish it were either thicker or thinner.
I purchased a travel-size of this before leaving on a short trip, and I used it every night for 3 days to remove a full face of makeup. It has a very strong cucumber smell -- not heavily fragranced like a perfume, but just really scented -- that I didn't like too much. It also has a strange consistency, a cross between foaming and gel...and I prefer foaming cleansers. It rinsed cleanly and didn't cause pimples or exacerbate any that I had, but I won't purchase again because of the smell and consistency. Nice leak-free packaging though.
Very nice cleanser...i have very sensitive skin b/c on Retin-A combo but can be flaky and peel and i have hard time to find good cleanser that is gentle but yet effective.I try many and the ONLY two i can really recommend so far are Fresh Soy and Avene Gentle Gel Cleanser.Never clog me or dry my skin.

I love this cleanser! It is HG material. I'm a hater and have 3 mini tubes of this and was letting them sit with all my skincare goodies figuring it's probably a hyped up Purity. So one night I was feeling curious so I gave it a shot and wow! First off, I love the cucumber smell and the fact it removes makeup. It didn't sting my eyes and left my skin feeling clean and refreshed. Also, you don't need to use a lot so it will last.
Me: n/d. Pros: Pleasant plant-y smell, like cucumbers as others have described. Easy to use- tube is squeezable rather than hard-sided, so I can get all the product out. Light lather- almost a cross b/w a lathering/non lathering cleanser. Non-irritating on my skin. Not sure it would remove a full face of makeup- I always double cleanse to remove sunscreen and mmu. Cons: ridiculously expensive. I'd also prefer the option of getting this in a larger size. Possibly the number of plant extracts would irritate some; while my skin tolerates this very well, it does sting a LOT if you get it in your eyes. Buy again? Yes, but primarily because this is a very good semi-foaming cleanser- perfect for my personal needs.
my HG cleanser!! i love this. it even removes almost all of my eye makeup and doesnt irritate my sensitive eyes, while keeping my skin clean, smooth, and clear. it manages to clean my skin while not drying it out. its a bit costly, but its well worth it. one tube lasted me six months! i need only about a dime size to clean my whole face even when i have full makeup on. the best cleanser ive ever used.
I didnt care that this didnt foam up much, but the cucumber like smell was too much for me. It did leave my face feeling very clean however.
