My brother got me a Lancome fragrance gift box on his last trip to India and this was part of the GWP. Its a wonderful cleanser, a tiny bit lathers up loads to really clean ur face and I like the mild fragrance too. Its really gentle and doesn't over dry my skin, just leaves it clean and fresh. I have been using this everyday since Jan and it just got over. I went to buy the full sized on but this one isn't available in India. The Lancome store here has the Gel Eclat cleanser instead so then I just swiched to Clarins. But I'm surely going to pick up this cleanser at the duty free when I'm travelling. Wish all these brands would have such awesome GWPs here in India as well!
I really do like this cleanser. My only complaint is the packaging-- I can't get 1/3rd of the product out. Other than that, it keeps my skin clean and beautiful.
I love this product. After years of struggling with Clinique, Dermatologist and various drug store skincare products I bought this after a little research online. It was between this and an Estee Lauder Cleanser. I have normal/combination sensitive skin. I can get oily in the T-zone in the summer. At the time I got this I had just got back from Mexico and my skin was dehydrated and my pores were grossly clogged. Something in my previous routine was causing a fine bumpy rash on my forehead, cheeks and chin. After using this and the other Lancome products for a week my skin had done a complete 360. This is the first cleanser that makes my skin feel clean but, not at all dry. I can wash with this and not feel I need to run for my moisturizer. This is mildly fragranced but, it has not bothered my skin or nose. It cost 25 dollars but I use less than a pea sized amount for each wash.
to start off, i have extremely dry skin and that it probably why it didnt work for me. I could feel it drying out my skin as soon as i was rinsing it off. It didn't do anything other than clean my face, and for 34 dollars, thats bull. Definetly wont be repurchasing.
I think i've found my HG of cleansers. I tried a sample of this from a lancome gift set since august 2011 and I still have a good 1/2 - 2/3 of the tube left. I don't consider this to be that pricey since you only use so little at one time. It takes off all my eye makeup and really CLEANS my face. In the summer months, it's perfect and doesn't leave that tight feeling on my skin as most other cleansers do; but during our canadian winter, my cheeks do feel a bit tight but after putting moisturizer on my face, all is good.
Like many other reviewers, I got this as part of a bonus, and the outstanding feature of this cleanser is how your skin literally squeaks after using it. For better or for worse, I like that squeak, but it goes a little overboard and my face feels a little too tight/dry/stripped afterward. On the other hand, it feels very clean too. The smell of this Lancome product is interesting - kind of oceany - but the texture is sort of goopy. I think I like Estee Lauder's Splash Away cleanser better, though I won't be buying either, as they're both too pricey and there are other very good cleansers out there that are way less expensive.
I got a 2 oz sample of this and I really like it. It is cushioning and foams but not excessively. My face feels very smooth after using it, and I love it with my Clarisonic. Lancome is very generous so already have 2 backup sample tubes of this. Of all of their cleanser formulations I've tried I like this one the best but it may be too drying for normal/dry skin. I have normal skin that can be a little towards the dry side during winter so may have to change as we move into the colder season. The only reason I give this a 4 is because it is very highly fragranced. I think it smells really pretty but the scent is strong so if your skin can't handle fragrance of any kind, beware.

I just got Lancome creme radiance as a gift with purchase and I totally love it...it does make my face feel squeaky clean and a bit tight afterwards but all I have to do is dab a bit of moisturizer on my face...I definitely will buy this product again...I don't find it to be too expensive because it comes in a 120 ml tube and you only have to use a pea sized amount of it...I glide it onto my face and massage, then I add water to it to create a foamy lather...it truly feels like a luxurious spa treatment...afterwards, my face feels really clean, soft, and pampered...truly a wonderful little beauty treatment... I highly recommend it...
I purchased this cleanser on the recommendation of a SA and have really been liking it. Its texture is very rich and creamy which gives it a lovely luxurious feel. At the same time, though, it's not too rich to the point where it doesn't remove excess oil and makeup. My face always looks and feels very clean after using this cleanser, and it seems to remove even longwearing/Colorstay makeup. I think this cleanser seems quite gentle in the best way and would probably be good for nearly all skin types except perhaps a very oily skin that needs a bit stronger cleanser. Highly recommended.
GET THIS STUFF...THIS STUFF WORKS! I am 44yrs old and trust me when I say I have used EVERYTHING ever made for skin care/cleansing. I received my Creme Radiance as gift purchase. A drop (and I mean that) of this stuff lathers like crazy and cleanses like no other. My skin is going through some changes so I am extremely careful about what to put on my face. THIS is my HG cleanser. It has transformed my skin. My skin is visibly radiant, soft, clean - but NOT stripped of all its natural oils.
I don't use Creme Radiance as a makeup remover. I use a makeup remover or EVOO to do that. I use this product to wash my face after I've taken off my makeup and in the morning when I wake. There is no residue and my face is clean and SOFT. I have combination oily skin and prior to using this, my face was dry, tight, cracking and no matter what I did, I was over producing oil and leaking like a car!!
I can't say enough great things about this product, I've had it over 3 months and no breakouts (unlike CeraVe PM which gave me cystic acne- see my review on that)! I wash my face in the morning and at night with it followed by Dickenson's Witch Hazel (the new/improved one with the yellow/clear label). Both of these are non-drying and non-stripping. My face has never felt better.
Ok, in terms of pricing. A little goes a very long way so I wouldn't call it expensive. This product lasts a very long time. I'm thinking a regular sized tube should last you close to a year - HONESTLY! ...And this is with washing day and night. If you've tried everything else, try this, it is worth the try. If you don't like it, take it back - but TRY IT!
I've liked a lot of things (a lot) but I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!!!
