I hate to give this a bad review because I *really* wanted to like it. I purchased this with the Best of Sephora kit, so thankfully not the full size. The cleanser itself feels very nice and your face does feel clean after using it. It's as good as (if not better) than the cleanser that my dermatologist was having me use that I can only purchase through her. It does not foam, which is fine, and my skin felt smooth after using it.

THE BAD: my eyes got really irritated by this. I didn't wash anywhere near them but the scent and/or chemicals of it clung to me I guess. Maybe I didn't wash it off as well as I thought but after several days of using this like I use my regular cleanser my eyes had that irritated "gook" in them, tears everywhere, etc. I even flushed my eyes with eyedrops after using it once and it didn't help. Anyway, I stopped using this cleanser and went back to my regular cleanser and everything cleared up so I'm pretty positive that is what set my eyes off.

Sadly I will not be purchasing again.
