On first application I was on the fence about this product, even though I have normal skin, I found this cleanser gave me that squeaky clean feeling on my face which I didn't find comfortable.
I am slightly annoyed that this cleanser did this to my face as I have purchased this product before but in the Shea butter version which I really enjoyed but it was for dry skin.
I am loathed to use it again but I will try and use it up.

Long story short, if you don't like that squeaky clean feel don't buy!!!

I've been using Spectro Jel on and off for 20 years after it was recommended by my dermatologist when I was young and acne prone, but I like to try new cleansers every once in a while. I'm a big Clarins fan, so I thought I'd give this a go. I have combination skin and am generally acne-free outside one or two monthly hormonal problems. Unfortunately, since I started using this, I've had the worst acne on my dry skin areas in years. It wasn't great at the oil control either, the pores on my nose have become much more noticeable and blackhead-prone.

This cleanser is soooo smooth and feels so nice on my face. My skin feels refreshed and clean after using this. Sometimes I will use it with my Clarisonic or just my hands, either way it's divine.

I love this. It feels so creamy and soft, but your face stiull feels clean afterwards. Because it feels like a creme, I initially used to much at once. You only need a tiny bit and it lathers very well, but not lathering in a foamy (drying) way, but more in a creamy, milky way.

The scent is also very nice. I know that is completely useless, but I just like face products to smell nice. I have quite a few things from Kiehls, but the fact that they don't smell good is a minus for me.

The price is not an issue for me. Yes, it's not cheap, but it's the price range I look for in skincare anyway, so I would compare to similar brands and prices. When it comes to skincare, it could be a lot more with some brands!

I have combination skin and I have been using a really gentle cleanser (Cetaphil) with the hopes that it would help my skin, but whenever I looked in the mirror, I was never truly happy with the results. I am a faithful, loyal fan of Clarins (serums, toners, moisturizers) but have not tried their cleansers prior to this because of cost... and I was also afraid that the results would be the same as my $6 cleanser. I decided to give it a try and... I am so glad I did! My skin is noticeably brighter and clearer - and even the pores on my nose (I get them quite often and quite easily) are less noticeable.

The packaging is less than ideal (fear of wasting product in the squeeze tube) but it's easy to throw into my gym bag.

Suffice it to say... I am now a fan and I will continue to use this!

I keep coming back to this cleanser. It is one of the only ones that gets all of my makeup off. I use Bioderma crealine water after washing my face, and no makeup comes off on the cotton pad, whereas with other cleansers, I usually see some leftover makeup. This cleanser makes my face feel clean but not tight or stripped and has never broken me out. I just ordered my third tube. Although I wish it were less expensive, this is a great product. Nothing fancy, but it does what it says it will do.

Amazing cleanser. Ran out of mine and haven't resupplied yet due to price, but if you're willing to paying $35 defiantly buy this product. I have usually 2-3 pimples on my face on any given day and for the time I spent with this product, none. BUY THIS!

I love this cleanser. Clarins is my go to brand for skincare. I get dry patches over my forehead and cheeks in winter. I've found that my skin often gets used to cleansers or starts developing a reaction to them over time. I've used this one for around 6 months with np trouble. It removes all my makeup and leaves my skin so soft without drying it out or leaving that tight feeling.

Totally love love love this product. I suffered with acne for years and tried everything! My friend bought me this for a gift a few years ago. I haven't changed face wash since. I can't say enough good things about it. With in 1 week my skin completely cleared up, was so soft and smooth. It smells really nice too. I have very dry skin so use the Shea butter one. For me - it was a life saver. I would recommend it to anyone. Thumbs up!
