I received this in a swap, and I really like this product! It was a very lightweight cleanser that thoroughly cleaned my skin, didn't dry it out, and even brightened it! However, I wouldn't buy this again, 1, because this brand is discontinued in the U.S (I believe it is anyway...) and 2. the packaging was THAT bad! I had this in a squeeze tube, and it was just terrible. It's a cleansing milk, so obviously the cleanser itself is very thin. When I would unscrew the cap, the cleanser would just drip out and leak if I couldn't put my hand under the opening fast enough. Once I didn't close it as tight as usual and it leaked into the cap and filled it up, so now when I close it, excess cleanser squeezes out the sides, which drives me mad! Overall great product, terrible packaging, and I would only buy this if it came in a pump dispenser instead of a squeeze tube.

This is my favourite cleanser. Too bad it's discontinued here :(
First of all, it's very light which I love. I don't like really heavy, creamy cleansers for everyday use (once in a while they're nice though!), so this was perfect for day-to-day use. I don't have sensitive skin personally, but as it's so smooth and light I think it would be great for sensitive skin. It has a nice, subtle, clean scent, not in-your-face perfume. My face feels clean and smooth after using this, and needless to say I use this daily. It also helps to control my oily t-zone which is a plus!

I love this product, I have very very dry dehydrated sensitive skin, but this doesn't irritate my skin at all! Its a little stronger than regular cleansers I find so I only used it 2-3 times a week (the one I use has acid free exfoliators you see..). I don't use it to remove my make up as such, as I have face wipes for that, but I do use it to improve the surface of my skin.
I have this in a squeeze tube, the packaging is so pretty and lovely, and I love the slight planty smell, delicious! It makes my skin feel really clean and soft. Will defo repurchase! xx

i didnt find this product great, i got a mini one in a gift set last year so it has different packageing to the shelf bought one, first off the lid was twist off which was a pain as it came out very liquidy and it would spill everywhere, it didnt feel great to apply i prefer to use products which are a bit more abrasive but it would be good for someone who has sensitive skin! it does have a nice smell! but for me i wouldnt buy this again!

OK, I know its described as "milk", but this isn't actually far from the consistency of actual milk, its so runny and sloppy, that it comes out of the tube way too fast. I even started to wonder to whether this was a bad batch or something?!?
Once applied to my skin, it just slips around its so thin and I don't feel I can work it into my skin because of this. It definitely does not feel luxurious!
I also found that it slightly stings my lips, I'm not sure whats in it that makes this happen, but it sure isn't pleasant!
I also like to be able to remove my eye make up and cleanse my skin in one step, so this also adds to the 'thumbs downiness" of this particular cleanser.
After use, my skin doesn't feel as clean as I believe it ought to, and I was really disappointed with the quality of this stuff.
I have to say that I do like most of the Soap and Glory range, but just not this particular product. So, sorry Mary but you get a total thumbs down from me, mainly because of the consistency, I just don't feel like its cleaning my skin because its so thin.

I first got a small tube of this product as part of a gift set and loved it so much I bought a big tube of it. I have noticed that when I stop using this (When I run out) I end up getting outbreaks of spots and Iv'e found this cleansing milk really helps prevent them and treat them. Great product very girly love it!

I've been using Neutrogena fresh foaming cleanser for years,and as per usual Soap and Glory's packaging sucked me in. At $15 USD it's a bit on the pricey side for Target,but I had to try it.
My skin is sensitive,dry,prone to redness.This effectively cleans off my makeup (not so much the wp mascara,but that's to be expected)without irritation.There is a scent,not unpleasant,but might be too much for really sensitive skin.It does not leave any residue.
I do not advocate this product for oily skin as it is a very creamy based cleanser (slightly milkier consistency than say,Cetaphil.)

I don't normally get any special body wash, however when I was looking more into the Soap and Glory range this caught my eye. It smells AMAZING, and has a handy pump dispenser. I got this around 4 months ago, and I'm about half way down the tub. Thats not too bad considering it costs around £5 and drugstores have offers on Soap and Glory products (3 for 2, 1/3 off etc) often. I don't know about the moisturising aspect of this, as I use a body moisturiser anyway. Excellent product and quality.

I got a tube of this in the Boots half price Hat box offer before Christmas and started using it when my usual one ran out. It has a nice creamy consistency and a little goes a long way. The smell is slight and not unpleasant. I was very impressed with the results - it left my skin really clean, and it felt soft and smooth without being at all greasy. I use a muslin cloth to remove the cleanser and this works really well.
However, i do not think I would buy it again as there are many cheaper products which perform just as well.

I usually use Dermalogica or Clinique cleansing products but I thought I would try this Soap and Glory Cleanser out as I've been using their face moisturizer on and off for the past year and have been very happy with it.
I wanted a cleanser that was creamy and non-drying, but that could effectively take all my make up off without having to use a seperate toner.
This product does all these things in my opinion, it has a lovely consistency and the ingredients list is excellent for the price.
Soap and Glory is the sister brand to Bliss spa products, and I find it very similar in terms of quality.
All in all very impressed and would by again!

If I didn't have sensitive, rosacea-prone skin, this would have been a contender. But after about 2 weeks usage, my skin became very red and sore, and always felt uncomfortable, really hot and tight after washing. The smell is unusual but nothing particularly unpleasant and you get a good amount of product for just under £6. The twist-lock pump is a plus. I found it could take my full-coverage mineral makeup off especially if I applied it to dry skin. Unfortunately, I had suspicions that it was breaking me out on the forehead and temples, but that may have been due to the huge amount of moisturiser I had to apply to combat the side-affects. For a cleansing 'milk' this isn't particularly moisturising, which is something I (naively?) expect from milks as opposed to gel/foaming cleansers. Having said that, it did keep the large pores around my nose pretty clear. So if you have sturdy, fairly normal skin, this will probably be an excellent cleanser. But if you have sensitive skin of any kind, I would be hesitant to recommend for long-term daily use. Ren Zostera Marina Milk or Nuxe 3 Roses Milk have been far superior for me.

After using Rationale Skincare for almost 2 years, I started running out of my stockpiled product and for some reason, I am unable to get my hands on more so reluctantly, I have been searching for new stuff.
On a trip to Target, I walked by the Soap & Glory section and decided to stop and finally read the labels and see if it might be any good, ingredient-wise. It seems that most all cleansers for oily, combo or acne prone skin has sulfates in it or something to make it foam and if not, contains acids of some sort high up on the list.
The Clean Mary Cleansing Milk seemed to be the closest to what I was using, ie: no acids that I could decipher and no foaming detergents so I figured it was worth a shot. Plus the price was right at about $12 where I would pay $60 plus shipping from Australia for my usual cleanser. I thought it was worth the high price since it made my troubled skin clear and as close to perfect as possible.
So after 3 weeks of "Clean Mary", my skin is still clear and feels good. No oil rebound that usually happens after trying something new. It is very gentle, is creamy and smooth and I only need one pump.
The scent is the only thing standing in the way of that 5th lipstick. I am just not in love with the smell BUT I suspect that if I add a drop or two of sweet orange oil, it will remind me of the Rationale cleanser that I loved so much.
