This is a cleanser I have come back to a few times. It isn't the best exfoliator but it foams up well, takes off even water proof makeup, and doesn't over dry. It keeps my skin pretty clear too, which is great.
I love this cleanser. I purchased it at a local Elizabeth Arden counter when i was getting my skin analysis. I was actually using clinique before this and their #3 clarifying lotion was too strong for my skin, although i am combination-oily. This Arden cleanser is gentle, it cleanses, exfoliates, and tones all in 1 for a 3rd of the price of what i'd pay at clinique or any other brand. And all you havve to do after cleansing with this is moisturize. Its so easy. I will definitely buy this again. I trust elizabeth arden products.
I have been using this for over two months as my main exfoliator and I really like it. It gets the dirt, oil, and makeup off of my skin without being too harsh. I love the way my skin feels after. I use it 3-5 times a week to cleanse my pores. I can be acne-prone and this doesn't make me break out. I will keep using this cleanser.
I just purchased this to pad my purchase to get the gift with purchase.
I think its not bad -I expected a too creamy cleanser which needs another foaming cleanser - but i was wrong - it was creamy but itself - it could remove my makeup & didnt leave any sticky expected residue.
I will continue & maybe update my review.
This cleanser rinses squeaky clean, which I love because I hate the feeling of residue on my skin after washing. The smell is a bit strong but really nice. The scrubber thingies are few and far between, and I prefer to scrub with Neostrata heavy duty sandpaper stuff to get a true exfoliation rather than a little every day. I think it is a bit drying, the scent could be a little rough on sensitive or dry skins, and so I won't be keeping this product. The whole Intervene line has not worked for me at all. In fact, even the EA shadows are irritating my eyes lately. Hmmmm.....
I LOVE this cleanser. It exfoliates w/o it being harsh and leaves your skin so soft. The frangrance is AMAZING!! I love the fresh smell and my face feels so clean, soft and smooth and ready for my moisterizer. You will be hooked on this fresh, soft fragrance. I will be a loyal buyer to this even though it is a little pricey~20.00. Love it!!
EDIT: This product, after a while broke my skin out so I had to give the rest to a friend. I was bummed because I really liked the feel and smell. It must have been the fragrance.
At first I thought this is just ok. But today I realized that this creamy exfoliator actually gives me dry patches after using it 3 days in a row . I have normal to dry skin and this heavily fragranced product makes it even drier. A big no no, so it won't be a repurchase.
I tried several samples of this and I like it for my dry and senstive skin. It cleanses very well w/ out drying and theres a bit of gentle exfoliation particles. this leaves my complexion soft smooth and clean. I follow up w/ my clarins routine: the toning lotion, hydraquench serum, and hydra quench cream.
I found nothing special about this product, no noticable difference in my skin and its not a product I will buy again.
This is a great cleanser! I have tried cleansers such as eve lom and liz earle cleanse and polish but although I love the idea of having a beauty ritual and exfoliating with muslin cloths, when I am tired I just can't be bothered! This is perfect though as it not only foams but exfoliates very gently. I have oily skin which is prone to blemishes but since I have been using this my skin has been very soft and clearer than ever! Performance-wise, this is as good as my favourite cleanser (fresh farmacy by Lush) and packaging-wise it is better as it comes in a tube so I can just hop in the shower with it. I am not sure about the anti-ageing claims though as it is just a face wash after all! Also I think this could be drying for sensitive skins but for oily skin it's perfect. I am on my second tube and would definitely repurchase!
