It's drying to my oily skin but nothing my moisturizer can't fix. I like the packaging and don't notice the smell. It doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, a major plus. Overall a fine product.
This cleanser dried out my normal/combo skin worse than regular soap. It gave me dry patches on my forehead and side of my face after three uses. It also aggravated my rosacea. It's too bad because it did a great job at getting rid of all traces of makeup off my face, and only a pea size amount of this foams up to cleanse your whole face (it may cost a lot, but I can see it lasting forever).
There are other cheaper better product than this. I would much rather buy a drugstore brand cleanser and use a good expensive moisturizer but $26+ is too much for a facial cleanser. The results on my skin is not any different from a cheaper brand.
this makes my skin feel smooth and fresh after cleasing. i like the smell. it is expensive though
Great runner-up to my Dior Magique Rinse Off Cleansing Foam, but like all cleansers that I've tried none supercede it. I really appreciate the generousity of Lancome in their gift with purchase items, they always give you larger sizes then other cosmetic companies, such as the 2oz size of this cleanser I received. This cleanser foams up well, smells nice but not overly fragrant, didn't dry my skin out. Removing foundation? I couldn't tell ya since I never use a cleanser alone to remove liquid foundation that seeps did into pores, I always use a m/u remover 1st then followed by a cleanser then toner. So as far as just cleansing alone I really like this product & feel it's worthy of the price.
I received a generous-sized sample of this cleanser in a Lancome gift bag. (the kind that's loaded with goodies that they give away if you purchase $30 worth of makeup) I love it! It works fine on my skin. It's a great nighttime cleanser that removes dirt, oil, and makeup from my face very efficiently. What's best is that you don't need much of it, just a Jujube-sized dollop creates a beautiful, silky-smooth lather that feels great and smells wonderful. My skin is so soft after I wash my face with it! Of course, I follow immediately with my nighttime moisturizer. When I run out of this stuff, I'm definitely going to pay the pretty penny for more.
This is supposed to be for normal/combo skin, which mine is combo and on the more oily side, but this dried my face out! Now it's patchy and red looking. The smell is nice, the product is smooth and you really only need a small amount. But is way to drying for even my oily skin. At $24, I don't think it's worth it.
I've been using this product for a few weeks now and I'm not in love with it. Foams up nicely and you only need a pea sized amount for your whole face. It leaves a squeaky clean feeling and is good for normal/combination skin. It does NOT get rid of foundation unfortunately. I have to go over my face with a toner (Tonique Controle is great) to get rid of all the makeup on my face. Wouldn't purchase this again as Dove works much better for much cheaper.
I seemed to have an allergic reaction to this product, but know that I have sensitive skin. I asked my dermatologist about it and she read the ingredients and noticed that one of them (potassium hydroxide) is a costic ingredient. That is used to get rid of warts... I'm sure it is a small amount, but I'd rather not put that on my face. If you have sensitive skin, I'd stay away from it. But it does remove everything...
Nice clean scent. Found this to give me too much of a squeaky clean feeling. Removes tinted moisturizer, bronzer and blush. I returned it for fear that it would quickly dry out my skin.
