For a product made with royal jelly, which I normally find very soothing, this gave quite the opposite effect. This leaves my face feeling dry and stripped. It foams well and removes most of my makeup, but stings my eyes and the skin around my eyes and mouth. It has one of the worst scents I've ever smelled in a cleanser. For a 99.9% natural product, the .1% unnatural must be this chemical fragrance. Blech. The pump quickly gets clogged with dried product and produces what I call "cosmetic boogers" lol every day. It also drips down the side of the bottle and I end up having to wipe it down after every use. I think I'm maybe halfway through this bottle and can't bring myself to finish it. I will be throwing this away, which is a first for me with a facial cleanser.
It does the job, and that's really all that I expect from a cleanser...to clean my face. And I do like that it's natural. Will probably buy again, but I do like to experiment with cleansers.
This facial cleanser was just okay. It foams up very quickly, noticeably cleanses my skin, doesn't seem to break me out... But it also has a very strong, obnoxious scent. I think it also can over-cleanse sometimes too, as dry spots can get worse while using this.
This cleanser isn't something that I would repurchase. My bottle did last a long time, since only a small amount was needed for each cleansing. continued >>
I'm not impressed. Yes, I bought this at Whole Foods for $10 since I've been searching for a cleanser that's natural, effective, and reasonably priced. Well, the price is right, but everything else about is lacking. I've actually been washing my face less since I bought this cleanser. I just can't stand the smell! For a product line that advertises heavily on their 'natural' ingredients it's a wonder why their facial cream smells like the inside of a chemical factory. I hold my breath while washing my face because the smell is that noxious.
Cleaning wise, it's meh, nothing special. I wish I could return it but it's too late. My advice is spend an extra $10 and get a nice facial wash or just stick with your basic cetaphil -- this face wash stinks.
I love this cleanser. Because I am acne prone, I have to be careful since even a cleanser can give me breakouts. I cheated on my cetaphil with this product and am happy with it, it makes my skin feel soft. The only thing is that I have oily skin and I could see this not being good for someone with dry skin, with moisturizer it would probably be fine though.
Perfect cleanser for my dry, sensitive skin. It has a thin but creamy consistency and it doesn't lather at all, but it seems to take off most of my makeup, although if I'm wearing a lot I'll use some jojoba oil first to help it out with the removal. The works well with my Olay cleansing brush thingie, and it's never irritated me. I am very happy with it and have repurchased!
I bought this cleanser after reading the reviews on here - they were mostly really good so I was keen to give it a go. I had been using Origin's Checks and Balances for over a year which had recently been drying out my face, making it tight and tingly.
I was looking for a product that cleaned my face, didn't dry out my skin but didn't encourage excess oil either (I have an t-zone). This cleanser does the job well. I would have preferred more lather but perhaps the fact that it doesn't lather works well on my skin as it is easy to wash off.
After use, my skin feels clean and fresh, not tight and dry. Many people complained about the smell in their reviews but I don't mind it at all.
I feel I have to use more than my previous cleanser to cover my whole face but at under £10 per bottle, it's not too expensive.
There are small scrubber balls in the cleanser (at least I think that's what they are!) but there's hardly any and are they too soft to actually make a difference.
I have ordered a new bottle and will continue using it. Let's hope it continues delivering!
The Radiance cleanser has a smooth texture somewhere in between milk and jelly. Its ability as a cleanser was mediocre to me – it didn’t seem any different from any other cleanser. It neither improved or burdened my complexion in any way. Radiance’s unique claim is that it has jojoba beads and fruit acids to provide a slight, gentle exfoliation. However, the jojoba beads were too few, and the fruit acids did not sit on one’s face long enough, to make any real impact. They seem to only be included as a gimmick. I would buy again because it's very natural - Radiance does not contain even phenoxyethanol, which is in some other Burts Bees products.
I use OCM for makeup removal, (Origins Clean Energy), but still want to follow up with a cleanser. My skin is combination, not overly sensitive. I like this product, but the smell turns me off. I just don't care for it at all. This gets my skin clean, is not overly drying--works great. Just don't like the scent. Sadly, I won't repurchase because of this.
You can get this in boots in the UK as with all the other products from this brand, although i cannot seem to find it in stores so i order it off the boots website, this is a bit of nuisance seeing there is a delivery fee. The product itself does a great job as a cleanser, the smell is perfectly fine, i cant believe how critical some people are on here lol, it gets rid of oiliness but leaves my skin soft smooth and fresh looking, and has softened my acne scars and really cleans deep in my pores in general, i also have dark lids which look more evened out after using this
and it foams just enough but not too much, its easy to was off and my moisturiser absorbs nicely. I cant think of a better cleanser, even my past dermalogica dermal clay cleanser cannot compare which cost a bomb but this is around £10 a bottle in the UK. I'm sticking to this for sure.
