After using Neutrogen's deep clean cleanser for almost 2 years, I thought it was time to switch things up a bit. I loved using Neutrogena, I thought it was pretty good. I have combination skin and I get the occasional spot here and there, but I was also having problems with getting pimples on my neck and I found it difficult to get rid of them as they were recurring and sometimes painful. I was looking into different cleansers that were specifically for pimples in hope to find a cure. I was overwhelmed with the choices and decided to go for a basic cleanser from Nivea since I already love they're body products. I've used this for a few months now and I have seen a DRAMATIC difference. I no longer get pimples on my neck! (Except for maybe a small one that would last a day or 2) month after month I would expect a new and painful zip to appear (esp around that time of the month) but it was all under control now! I'm very pleased and thankful to have finally found something that works for me! Its given me more confidence now.
It cleans well and smells great. Your face truly does feel refreshed and clean
I guess I've found my HG!

I did not care for this cleanser. It's a decent cleanser for the money, but I didn't feel it got my face clean enough. Actually I know it didn't, because almost the entire time I was using this, I was broke out in the worst acne I've ever suffered in my life. I don't blame the cleanser for bringing on the acne; I blame my job for that, because I sweat like a pig in my job. But I do think that this cleanser wasn't strong enough to break through all that grime and keep my skin clean. So for that I only give it 2 lippies.

I've been using this cleanser for several months now and it works fine. I have acne-prone/combo skin. This does not break me out but it doesn't fight or reduce my acne either. It doesn't do anything to control oil either. It's just a cleanser that will make your skin feel clean and refreshed. I'm giving it a 4 because it doesn't break me out but it doesnt do anything special either. I tried using another cleanser for a while but came right back to using this since it's what works best for my skin.

Great, wallet friendly, gel cleanser for combination skin. I used this for years, with great results, and then got bored of it and changed to a different gel cleanser. In the end I switched back because the oil control of the other product was horrible. This works great with the toner. It's not fantastic for taking makeup off, though, so I would suggest using a cold cream or makeup remover first. Light, fresh scent. Tried and true. I prefered the old packaging though, as you used to get more for your money. Still ceap nonetheless.
EDIT: will probably not be buying this again now that I have tried Mark "That's Deep" - it keeps my t-zone oil free longer than this product does. I would probably recommend this to someone with normal skin, though.

I like this product as it has a lovely clean fresh smell, nd leaves m skin feeling really soft. I always feel though with nivea products ,cleansing milk,wipes etc that they have a tendency to sting sometimes so I wouldnt advise people suffering from sensitive skin to purchase this. Its very good for removing make up and ive had no breakouts or anythng from using it. Overall it wouldnt be my favourite cleansing product but it did quite a good job.

This cleanser cleans pores well. I feel squeeky clean after using this. It takes a while to wash off, but after I wash it off, it feels like it tightened my pores. Not too drying.

I like the scent, so I don't know why other reviews didn't seem to favour it.

I would definately repurchase if Nivea removed the parabens. Right now, I'm trying to find an alternative w/o parabens.

I wanted to try out a gel cleanser for a change and I just find this cleanser to be okay. It is quite cool and refreshing as its name and I don't mind the "clean" scent that it has. It doesn't remove my makeup (for reference, I usually wear a quarter amount of revlon colourstay foundation set with powder and some blush) very well at all. I find myself using a makeup wipe prior to using the cleanser to ensure my makeup comes off. I'll probably won't repurchase this cleanser again as I'm determined to find a better one.

I am disappointed this product does absolutely nothing to remove make-up (guess I should have read the reviews prior to purchasing it!)

I am not too fond of the smell and find that I need a lot of water to wash it off competely.

Will use this cleanser in the mornings only and will not repurchase.
