Be careful, this cleanser contains a sh-it load of various oils in it as well as cones. My skin can't tolerate oils from previous skincare adventures so I can't use this. I understand this has "soothing" ingredients like green tea, cumumber and aloe. However, I don't see this geared for sensitive skin that is also acne prone, clogged pore prone and oily. I can see this working for sensitive skin that is dry and not prone to breakouts or clogged pores. I received a hefty 6oz tube of this cleanser with my clarisonic as well as some sample sizes. I think they will be all going up for swap.
I got this as a free sample with my Mia and I will not be purchasing, in fact, after just one use, I have thrown the sample away.
My skin was itchy, red and bumpy after I used this. Something in it doesn't like my skin.
This review is for the Clarisonic Gentle Hydro Cleanser that came as a bonus with my Clarisonic Plus Kit. This was a happy surprise, especially since I have not used a cream cleanser in years. Why? I'm acne sensitive and prefer a water-activated or foaming cleanser with an anti-bacterial ingredient. This cleanser has a "ph balanced non-foaming formula enriched with antioxidants, green tea and vitamin E" That sounds nice, but I always wonder about the skin's ability to actually absorb these ingredients, lol.
All I know is that this feels clean and cool on the skin. It easily takes off all my makeup with the exception of waterproof mascara. It really does smooth out the skin and along with the clarisonic, does clean out the pores around and on my nose and under my lower lip. It leaves my skin soft and smooth enough at night to go to bed without a night cream or moisturizer. None of the ingredients have broken me out or caused irritation and I'm super sensitive. Lots of botanicals on the ingredients list, but lots of silicones, too. I would not buy again at $25.00 for 6 oz., but do intend to use it up.
I received a sample of this product when I purchased my Clarisonic. It came in a set. I have sensitive acne-prone skin and this was supposed to be able to be used for all skin types. It was gentle enough for even the sensitive skin types. I used it for about a week and I broke out really bad. I stopped using it right away and I cleared up almost instantly. It might be useful for someone with dry skin since it's so creambut not ALL skin types like oily and acne-prone.
So, I just started using this product and one thing that I have to say is LOVE. I haven't noticed a HUGE decrease in my acne (I have quite a lot) but i can tell that my skin has improved. I am the type of person who despises washing their face, but with the clarisonic I find that its not as big of an issue. All together, you are spending a max of 5 minutes washing everything off. My skin feels baby smooth. I have pretty sensitive skin and the normal brush is just fine for me. I love this product. 5 lippies :)
I got this with my Clarisonic and was not going to try it because I have very sensitive skin, but when I ran out of my Olay cleanser, I decided to try it. What a pleasant surprise! This, unlike anything else I've tried(except my beloved HG, discontinued Purpose Gentle Foaming Cleanser), takes off my mascara without rubbing and tugging, and doesn't irritate or dry out my skin. I have no idea how much it costs but I plan to repurchase.
I got a sample of this that came with the Mia. At first I didn't want to use it, afraid that it might break me out. So I checked the ingredients and notice it contains Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, and Green Tea. The product is good. A nice gentle cleanser, reminds me of Cetaphil, which is my HG cleanser at the moment, this cleanser doesn't dry out my skin, nor make it oily. And I'm already using Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, and Green Tea in my regimen, so..there's really no need for this product for me. I'll definitely use up all the samples but won't be [re]purchasing it.
Really gentle and effective cleanser I like to use it for washing my face in the morning. I like the feeling afterward my skin is clean and doesn't feel tight or dry. Definitely recommend this cleanser over cetpahil
I got this as a sample with my Clarisonic brush. I never tried it because I read online that the cleanser wasn't very good. I was using Cetaphil cleanser with my Clarisonic brush and my face was still getting red. So I decided to pull this Clarisonic Gentle Hydro Cleanser out of the drawer and try it. And guess what?? A lot of people are wrong about this cleanser because it's excellent. My face was instantly relieved of all redness and so smooth. Whoever forumulated this cleanser did a good job because it works great with the Clarisonic brush. I have sensitive, oily and dry patches and this has completely evened out my skin. I'm so glad I decided to try it. I just bought the big bottle from Ulta.
I received this with my clarisonic and would not purchase it on its own. It doesn't feel like it does anything.
