I purchase the travel size of this cleanser. The citrus scent is invigorating. Its a nice way to get the morning started. I also enjoy the foam that comes out of the pump. Its different then all the cleanser I used before. Its cleanses with out stripping the skin. I love this cleanser. Not anything to complain about beside the price.my new favorite

This cleanser is MEH. It does an okay job but honestly there's nothing special about it for the price. I'm willing to spend a little more for a cleanser if it's worth it, but this one is not.

My overall impression is that this cleanser is a little on the wimpy side. I prefer something that leaves my face feeling a bit cleaner.

This one just doesn't do it for me. Won't buy it again.

I got this in an OH set and I didn't expect to like it with my experience with foaming cleansers, so this left me pleasantly surprised! The foam comes out nice and thick, but isn't too heavy and is a creamy foam to spread around to spread around on your face. 'Creamy foam' like when you lather a nice moisturizing body wash onto a pouf. It removes my mineral makeup well enough, but I'd use another cleanser or my remover if I were wearing eye makeup or mascara, but I usually don't, so it's a non-issue.
Best part is that it's SUPER gentle and non-drying. The other foam cleansers I've tried have been too harsh and drying, and other 'gentle' cleansers either did not remove makeup, or were still too harsh. This leaves my skin feeling clean, but hydrated. Good for use daily with just hands, and I use it occasionally with my clarisonic or a konjac sponge if I want that extra exfoliation.
Note: I have sensitive skin, but usually have only a little acne. This did not aggravate acne when I have it, but it doesn't do anything to help it either (and it doesn't claim to, so don't expect miracles).

This is a nice foaming face wash. The scent is nice and light, it does leave my skin refreshed and soft, and clean everything. When using a toner after that, my cotton pad doesn't pick up any dirt left behind. I will not repurchase because this is really too expensive, and I think it's flushing money down the drain, but if you want to splurge on a face wash, this might be one to consider!

I received this as a gift with purchase.
I have used it nightly for 2 weeks.
I like everything about it.
The skin on my face feels perfect after washing and ready for whatever i choose to apply next.
I would purchase the full size if I believed in spending $$ on a facewash but I don't.
I think spending a lot of money on something that you rinse off immediately is money wasted
But, if price wasn't an issue, I would buy this for sure..

I use this as my morning cleanser because it's light and citrusy. However, I don't find it to be anything special and don't notice any big difference in my skin, so I would not repurchase.

Love this cleanser. I have baseline combo skin with crazy flaky dry and REALLY sensitive patches around my mouth area from using Retin-A. Foaming cleansers tend to make my face feel the most clean, but I have avoided them the last five years because the sulfates that make it foam make my skin feel very stripped and dry afterwards. However this one has no sulfates and it is instead the pump that makes it foam.

One pump of foam spreads easily around my face and I don't feel like I need to work hard spreading my cleanser around like lots of cream ones. I always use eye make up remover, but do not use make up wipes/cleansing water on my face prior to cleansing and this cleanser has hands down done the best job of removing all of my foundation/base products compared to any other cleanser I have used. It has a nice citrus scent that is pleasant and not overpowering. Afterwards, my skin feels squeaky clean but not tight. It's done a great job of getting my face clean without aggravating my already super sensitive skin. Also love the one full pump dispenses the exact amount I need; great packaging. Price ($30 for 7oz) could be better but will definitely repurchase after using up my very large stash of cleansers.

Love this cleanser, its foamy and light. The smell is good. After the cleaning my skin feels refreshed, without beeing striped.

This smells amazing and is super gentle for a foaming cleanser. Great for those times you want a squeaky clean feeling without your face feeling super tight after.

I really liked how foamy this product got with just half a pump. Half a pump seemed to be enough to get light make up off. Some people say the smell is too strong but I quite enjoyed the orange fresh smell. The bad thing is I couldn't finish the bottle because by the time I got to about 1/4 left, the smell started to turn bad...I was told this was due to the natural ingredients and absence of preservatives. I will likely not buy this product again but if I did, I would only buy the half size bottle.
