I love this cleanser :) I got a 30ml deluxe sample of this from my friend's mother when I helped my friend's sister did her prom makeup! On the tube, 'Gentle, effective cleansing developed by Clinique's dermatologists for the needs of skin dry in the cheeks, comfortable to oily in the T-zone. Non-drying. Use twice daily.' Its a colourless gel which lathers well, and it cleanses my skin without overdrying it. On some days when I wear a light foundation and powder, it cleanses it right off without the need for a makeup remover! I use a toner after it and theres no trace of makeup left on my skin! Even though I have oily-combination skin, and this is for dry-combination skin, I felt that it was still suitable for my skin type. This is value for money as I got about 50 days of usage out of this sample, with usage twice a day. With that said, the full-sized bottle should be able to last me about 8 months! I have no complaints about this cleanser, and will recommend it to anybody who wants a good and reasonably priced cleanser. I will repurchase this when I run out of cleansers :)

Okay, so i have pretty normal, sometimes sensitive skin, but i fit into the #2 dry combination section of Clinique skincare. I was sucked into buying the whole system, and i thought i might as well give it a shot. I like it. I really do. Its very gentle, foams up like AMAZINGLY, nice fresh clean extremely mild scent, and doesnt dry my skin out. I think that is thanks to the one thing missing that is in most drugstore facial cleansers-salicylic acid. I like a bit in a cleanser, but most of the time it just dries my skin out. so, since this has none in it, it is very nice to use! i only use it in the mornings, and i put a pea-size drop on the scrubblet that came with my L'Oreal 360 clean cleanser, and it foams so nicely, wakes me up, and is just fun to use!! $16 dollars, so its a tad expensive, but i will buy again(:
its a pretty basic facial cleanser. it removes makeup well, no fragrance, and easy to use. i got this with a gift with purchase, but i wont purchase the full size because its pretty pricey.
I don't like the liquid facial soap. It leaves my face feels greasy. I feel like it doesn't rinse off entirely. The clinique bar soap is much better.
Tried this out as part of the three step system, I liked the fact Clinique as a brand markets for simplicity, and I was fed up of trying to search for products that fit my skin so I gave it a go. Not very impressed, didn't really do an adequate job of cleansing, made my skin feel pretty tight on my cheeks and I broke out a lot using the system as a whole. Not worth the money.
HG HG HG! I can't live without this product. I have dry, sensitive skin and any cheap drugstore facial washes (even ones that claim to be 'gentle') break me out, dry me up or give my skin a reaction. It is expensive but it really does keep my skin calm and spot free and doesn't aggravate dry patches - so gentle. I use it in the shower every other day, along with the dramatically different moisturising lotion (don't bother with toner) and my skin is perfect. When I ran out of my big bottle I tried to live without it and bought some cheaper ones and just ended up wasting my money! My skin was bumpy and I developed a red scratchy forehead and cheek :( I repurchased this, didn't regret it and I will repurchase again and again as I've found my perfect product :)
This is an okay cleanser. Nothing great, nothing bad. It's gentle, but actually cleans. It doesn't remove makeup, so you'll need to use a makeup remover first, but I always do anyways.
I have the full size bottle at home that I bought from Dillard's so I could get the GWP. It has come to replace my Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel as my gentle, no frills, morning face wash. I also have several of the travel sized ones that I always end up taking with me when I'm going away somewhere, simply because they are already travel sized - not for any particular preference of this product.
For me, I don't like it for end of day cleansing as I don't find it strong enough, but I have tough skin and can handle tough products.
I probably won't buy this again unless I have to buy something from Clinique (for a GWP) and can't think of anything else.
I ah-dore this cleanser. I have not tried many products before (mostly at my best friends' houses) but for Christmas when I was twelve, I received the cleanser and the dramatically different moisturizer, and it maintained my already good skin and most likely improved it! Most skin care products are aimed towards the two extremes: acne-prone skin and/or extreme dry. I have yet to find another product that is aimed towards normal skin. Whilst there are an option for every skin type, there is not an overwhelming amount of products to have to choose from, which I like because I know my skin better than anyone else and I can pick and choose the products that are clearly directed for my skin type for overall healthier skin. Thanks Clinique!!! <3
WORKS! Will always re-purchase. I have sensitive pale skin.
This is an amazing cleanser if you have sensitive skin. It foams easily and can be worked into a good lather. The downside is that it doesnít last nearly as long as the bar soap version but when it comes to convenience I canít complain. My favorite way to use it is with a facial sea sponge.
