I switched to this after the cottonseed foaming cleanser was stinging my eyes and leaving me a little dry. But this one is awesome! No irritation and still does a great job at cleansing. It smells so fresh and yummy and has a nice lather. Works well with my clarisonic too! Really love this cleanser.
I just love this cleanser.
My skin is normal/combination but this gives me a thorough clean without leaving me feeling tight. It has the softest texture and lightly foams, like washing with a cloud. But it's the scent that really sells it. I can't describe it, but it smells like the most expensive, luxurious spa you can imagine. It's really such a pleasure to use it!
I have combination skin with oily T-zone and dry cheeks/mouth area. This cleanser smells quite sweet from the shea butter and it feels incredibly soft and gentle to use, but you can still feel that it works. It is quite rich so I mainly use it at night - and will use during the winter.
I am currently using several different cleansers by Clarins but I will repurchase this one as it is perfect when your skin needs some TLC.
EDIT: Forgot to say, one lippie off as it can be too rich for my combination (though sensitive) skin.
Love this. It smells beautiful, it's lovely to use. Thick, creamy and cleans really well.
This stuff is amazing, I have very dry and sensetive skin. Lately, I could not find anything that provided moisture to my skin no matter what I tried! A sales person at Nordstrom suggested Clarins although she worked at the Chanel counter. I am so happy to have come across this product. My skin is looking and feeling great.
It is only necessary to use a pea size amount so a little goes a long way! Give it a try, it is one of my favorite finds...
Texture. Thick, creamy, easily spreadable. It does not really foam though.
Smell. Kind of sweet but not too strong.
Great for sensitive skin. It did not cause any breakouts, did not dry out my skin (still need to use moisturizers soon after though).
Price. Very reasonable at $21. Only a small amount is needed. The tube will probably last 6 months of twice daily use.
Nothing special. It is a solid gentle cleanser good for sensitive skin and that is it. It does not make my skin any softer, brighter, fresher looking, clearer, etc. I will have to depend on my moisturizers and serums for any "extras" to my skin.
Removes about 95% of makeup (all face makeup with residual eye makeup) and has a hard time removing my sticky Shu umera mascara.
I will continue to purchase until I find something better.
Best cleanser i've ever used (and i've used a lot: Liz Earle, Dermalogica, SKII, Vichy Normadem, Avene, La Roche Posay... etc, none of which have done anything to my problematic skin). I have dry, sensitive and acne-prone skin which was getting drier than usual this winter. I got a small sample from Clarins and it blew me away right after the very first use. The only times my skin would feel this smooth and soft is right after an expensive facial or a thorough scrub (which i try not to do often). I've never experienced a cleanser which had an impact so immediately and i just had to buy the full size the next day. It says 'foaming cleanser' but it doesn't 'foam' at all for me and i love that fact. A tiny tiny bit is enough to give my face that post-facial feel. I'm so so impressed! This is the first ever product which i could call my holy grail!
Have been using a couple weeks and this stuff rules. Every cleanser even cetaphil dries me out but this doesn't and it feels lovely. Decent price too. My breakouts have actually reduced so much too probably because my skin is being hydrated and not irritated. Don't leave it on too long though, ten seconds or less or it could potentially start to dry you out.
I love this cleanser it smells lovely and my skin felt so soft an supple after using it. Great for my sensitive skin, especially in the morning when my skin can be particularly dry feeling.
I would definitely buy it again..even if my student loan doesn't quite stretch to the cost!
Fantastic cleanser! I'm on my 2nd tube. It cleanses very well (after using my Shu cleansing oil) and leaves my skin comfortable and soft (not tight). Smell is just right too (not overpowering). Def repurchase! Price is also reasonable at $30 can.
