I was not aware there was a product that could make your skin feel like a hybrid of a baby's bum and a cloud, but wonders never cease.

As a makeup remover, it's so-so, at best. Like a terrible soldier, it leaves enough behind for me to require double cleansing with Bioderma, and even then, I find there are times where my exfoliator is removing some makeup yet.

As another part of my skincare routine, it really does leave my skin extremely soft and hydrated. I liked the Dior Gentle Milk Cleanser, but this stuff is cheaper and leaves it even softer--albeit at the expense of not doing the main thing in which I purchased it to do.

If I were loaded, I'd definitely buy this again as just another step for skincare and making my skin soft. It might be better for mornings rather than as an evening cleanser, but too much cleansing leaves my skin even drier than normal, so once this runs out, I'll likely be trying something else. But for now, it's that coworker everybody really likes...but sucks at their job and really has to go once their time is up.


- Softens the skin
- Hydrating
- Does not feel drying in the least
- Good for mornings for those that cleanse their face 2x per day


- Does not remove makeup very well
- Expensive for what amounts to a fancy skin softener rather than a cleanser
- Does not work that well for double cleansing

I really like this cleanser. I have sensitive skin and usually stick to cleansers by Cerave, but this was even better. It's gentle, got more of my makeup off than Cerave, and made my skin look better. It didn't dry me out and didn't leave a residue. So far my favorite cleanser. One point off because it is quite expensive and really doesn't last that long.

This is a great cleanser. It makes my skin look instantly hydrated and plump. I think it does a decent job at cleansing impurities. I haven't tested it on makeup. I usually double cleanse - Shiseido cleansing oil for makeup and then this.

The packaging is perfect. Looks really pretty in calm green and the pump is so convenient.

I still feel like there must be something better out there though. I'll keep searching.

I would maybe purchase again but probably not before I try out other stuff.

Update: the longer I use this the better it gets. I think this has to be my HG. I'll keep trying others because I like keeping my options open but this will always be my staple cleanser. My skin is always hydrated, plump and fresh when I use this and since I use it twice daily my skin is absolutely lovely and glowing.
