I bought this on the strength of other reviews, but it did not work for my combination, sensitive skin at all. It was the opposite of hydrating; my skin was left parched and tight afterwards, and it aggravated my mild rosacea and small patches of SD. I would have returned it, but I purchased it online, and it comes in a bottle with one of those screw-open pump tops which are impossible to close. Very disappointed.

I absolutely love and highly recommend this product. It is the first cleanser that did not dry out my combination/acne prone skin. It really normalized my skin and keeps me well hydrated all year and especially during the dry winter season. I purchased a few other cleansers from this brand but this one by far my favorite. It has a clear, gel like consistency but it does not offer much lather. Also, this product has a great ingredient list, unlike so many of the offerings on drugstore shelves. I feel you get a lot of product for the price and you only need to use a nickel size amount. I don't wear makeup often but when I do it has done a good job getting my face clean. I am also finished with my first bottle and I will be purchasing a replacement.

Currently oily/combo/dehydrated with mild acne recently rearing it's ugly head. Although I don't always agree with Paula Begoun, I liked her description of this face wash and decided to try it out. I really like it - texture, smell, the way it leaves the skin soft and supple. It also gives me a slight tingle which makes me feel it's doing my skin good. The only thing I'm not so keen on is the fragrance which, although not really unpleasant, irritates me slightly. I don't normally go for foaming cleansers as I've had bad experiences with them in the past - tightness, dryness etc. but this one, along with the Derma E Vitamin A and Glycolic face wash, buck the trend. I'd like to keep this cleanser on standby for when my skin just needs a gentle cleanse and I don't fancy lugging my lovely but enormous Cerave cleanser around with me. And it lathers well with my Clarisonic. Not sure it's HG but I'm done looking for cleansers for my troublesome skin - I like to have a small range of cleansers and scrubs to choose from - and this one will also do for when my skin is back to normal (normal for me, at least!). UPDATE: I couldn't be without this now; it leaves my skin so clean and soft when I use it as stage 2 of a double cleanse. A definite re-purchase.

I ran out of my HG Purity cleanser. Needed something so I picked up this gem from Meijer after looking at the reviews here. It's winter and my skin is dry & aging so it seemed like a good fit. This stuff is incredible. Super pampering yet removes light applications of make-up. I Use it over my eyes to remove mascara with no irritation & minimal raccoon eyes when using certain mascaras, tho it completely removes others. When I wear my MAC Face & Body I just wash twice and everything is gone. It's easy to find and not expensive, natural and cruelty free! If your skin needs some extra pampering this is a must have product for sure.

At 52 it has been a challenge to find a natural cleanser that doesn't strip my skin, but still removes makeup. This cleanser is wonderful, very moisturizing but still thorough and my skin doesn't feel tight after using. It has a pleasant, light scent. The price point is good (in the middle) and you get an ample-size bottle for the price. It gets a 4 for packing only because the pump can sometimes give you more cleanser than you need.

Really like this cleanser. I have acne prone oily skin that is very dehydrated from all the medications I've used in the past. This cleanser is really nice, it gives a good clean without drying me out. After a few weeks of using it I started to see a difference in my face, including my acne. It made about as much difference as using a salicylic acid based cleanser would on my skin, without stripping it. It isn't the most amazing thing at removing makeup, but it does a decent job. I prefer to remove a bit of my face makeup before I use this, but if I'm feeling a tad lazy or not wearing much base I don't bother and this removes it fine.

I've glanced at this brand before in Ulta, but this is my first purchase. I wanted a cleanser that was gentle enough, but made for dry to very dry skin. This has so many good organic ingredients, and it also smells nice. The gel comes out thick, so you need a small amount. It doesn't have a lot of lather with tons of bubbles, but it does rinse clean. The hyaluronic acid is a must have for the fall and winter, since my skin is bone dry most days. This is not a cleanser that removes makeup, but I use a face cloth to do that beforehand. My skin feels soft and hydrated. The feeling doesn't go away after 10 minutes! I think this can replace a lot of face creams. I will be buying more from this line.

It's really tough to find a lathering cleanser that doesn't dry out my combo, Tazorac-ravaged skin, but this thick gel cleanser surprised me. The ingredient list is full of vitamins and interesting extracts (horsetail), and it smells like plumeria. I use it twice a day and it leaves my face literally squeaky clean without drying it out like almost all other lathering cleansers (Rosacea Care is the only other) and even most non-foaming cleansers. Of course, to remove sunscreen and makeup, I cleanse with oil at night before using this cleanser. I found this at a popular online vitamin store for less than $10. This cleanser is such a wonderful little gem that lasts forever - but when it does run out, I'll definitely repurchase.

A little info on my skin: sensitive, combo that tends to be more oily in summer and dry in winter, rosacea, acne-prone, deep blackheads on nose, will peel around the mouth area if I don't moisturize enough (thank you, Taz).
