This cleanser was refreshing at first, but became quickly too striping and made my face too thigh, even the oilier areas (I have a combo skin). Plus, the scent isn't really pleasant and this cleansing gel has such a weird color. Not for me.

I really like this cleanser. I think it's very gentle. I have oily skin and it does a good job of leaving it soft and not greasy. I wish it did a better job of removing eye makeup but other than that it doesn't strip my skin but gently cleanses. I use this in the AM in conjunction with the special cucumber lotion. My skin has been clearer since using it. I would repurchase when this bottle runs out. It is a little hard to find butI got mine at Nordstroms. I suggest going to the website and ghetting some free samples first.

I didn't like this cleanser at all. It made my face feel oily, and it didn't suds up at all. I just didn't like the texture, and I can't see any noticeable difference in my skin.

I used to think this was good but since switching to Cetaphil I realize just how stripping this was. Not a product for sensitive skin, as it claims to be.

Hm. Even though I prefer foaming cleansers, this one is really impressing me. Got the nicely sized sample version so I've been using it for about a week. It leaves my skin refreshed and smooth. They are very generous with their samples, so try it out.

I broke out into tiny bumps after each and every use (and my skin is well behaved). Next!

Can't decide if I like this. It doesn't foam, so I prefer the glycolic cleanser; it's cheap so I prefer this gel to the glycolic cleanser. I can't tell if it hurts my eyes--I never let cleanser near my eyes. I have combination, acne-prone skin that seems to like it for the cleansing of both dry and oily. But it leaves my skin more dull and with more pimples than the glycolic cleanser. I don't know. I guess it's worth the outrageously good price for the huge bottle since it doesn't irritatemy skin and it smells good. Would maybe buy again.

Just for reference, I am in my mid 30's and have Combination skin with mild Rosacea and some very fine lines around the eyes. Unfortunately, my skin is very picky and I have to be very careful when choosing skincare.I started using Mario Badescu products about 4 months ago after receiving several samples along with my Elasto-Seamollient Hand cream. My results were so wonderful, I intentionally waited for 3 months to make sure it kept working! I've tried several lines of skincare; Clinique (too strong, drying), Chanel (smelled way too "perfumey" to me), Bliss Labs (used the stuff for sensitive skin and subsequentley got the worst rash I've ever had!), Paula's Choice (still like this line, excellent basic skincare, especially the BHA's and cleansers!), Remede (sticker shock!!!), Kiss My Face Organics (made me think I just couldn't use "botanical" skincare; rashy and red!)and even Cetaphil and Eucerin at the recommendation of my Dr., but NOTHING has done the wonders that this line has!This cleanser was yet another winner for me. It really gets the gunk off and leaves my skin squeaky clean, but not dry in the least. I was a little nervous about using it because of the AHA's and botanical ingredients (bad memories of Kiss My Face). I thought it might be too harsh. On the contrary, it was quite soothing and I had absolutely no issues with sensitivity whatsoever.And I also like that this is a moderately priced line. This cleanser runs about $12.00 for 8oz. A great choice for combo, oily, and/or blemish prone skin types! continued >>

UPDATE 11th June '05: Changed rating from 4 to 1. I stopped using this at the end of last year, as I believe it was causing irritation and cystic breakouts, after a couple of months of consecutive use. My skin has recovered now.ORIGINAL REVIEW: I like this AHA cleanser - it smooths my skin and clears surface gunk from pores, allowing treatments (like benzoyl peroxide) to penetrate more effectively. After initially cleansing with a washcloth in lukewarm water, I towel my face dry, apply the cleanser like a mask, leaving for a few minutes and rinsing with cool water. This leaves my skin very clean and soft. (For some reason I experience dryness and irritation if used directly on wet skin - no idea why that is!) Love the practical, fuss-free packaging. Does have a strong 'clean & fresh' fragrance. continued >>

This is a nice gentle cleanser for me. I use it when I'm a bit dry/irritated from my possible HG MD Forte cleanser II. Like everyone else, I do not care for the scent at all. It sort of reminds me of hotel shampoo. Anyway, I find it to be a nice, gentle, non-irritating cleanser. Doesn't work any miracles for me. Would *probably* buy again.
