I absolutely adore this cleanser! It cleans my face soo well, it smells great and it lathers very well with a bit of water. I have acne prone skin so I need something with acne medication in it, and since this cleanser does not I dont use it daily. This is a great cleanser for people with normal to oily skin, but not acne prone. It won't cause breakouts but it doesn't prevent and treat them. I use this when randomly needing to wash my face in the middle of the day, or if I'm wearing a lot of makeup I use this before my acne cleanser to help remove everything since it cleans really well. I would definitely give this a try if you're still searching for a great cleanser.

I have no idea what the purpose of this product is, but I decided to try it after seeing it sitting in the bathroom cabinet. (haha, obviously I am not the one who owns it)
This thing saved my skin. I've been having really bad break outs and bumps all over my face as of the last 6 months and I was going crazy trying to figure out what was making it happen. I don't have to freak out anymore because this item corrected it for me. Not only that, I never knew how skin could feel 'good' after a wash until now.
I'm going to now invest in some other pevonia products to see if I continue to get awesome results.
(I see everyone says to avoid this if you don't have oily skin. That's super weird because my skin is dry and that has cleared up as well since I've used this product. However, I think what drys out my skin is the water in our house so it really does correct water issues if any)

have tried this cleanser a couple times in different times of my life, overall, it is just OKAY. doesnt control my oil, but doesnt break me out. i love how its free of many chemicals, etc which is a plus. pevonia is a very high end brand with good quality, but, still looking for my favorite cleanser.

I've been using this product for a few weeks now and here are my pros and cons.
-love the sophisticated scent
-cleans the skin of make-up and oils really well without that "stripped of the last bit of moisture" dry and tight feeling like cleansers can.
-lasts, as only a little amount is needed for a thorough cleanse
-no on-going effect on my skin oil levels
-Dislike the pump as it squirts tiny little bits out and then tends the product to slide under the pump and that feels like a bit of a waste
-very expensive (around $AU80). If I'm paying that kind of money for a cleanser, I expect a bit more than just great cleansing, also expect some on-going benefits.

This product's smell is really strong to me. It smells like a man's cologne in my opinion-- musky in a way. The consistency was all right, and it did leave my skin feeling clean and fresh. I also didn't like the pump because not much product came out in one pump. Needless to say, I am trying to use it up so I can purchase a cleanser I like better. I feel a cheaper cleanser would work just as well or even better than this product even if this product is purely organic.

This is nice gentle cleanser that I tend to use in the morning. I'm not sure if it actually helps keep my face matte throughout the day. I haven't noticed any drastic difference. Even though I like it fine, I don't think it's something I can't live without. It's kind of pricey for something that I can't really see a difference with.

This cleanser is probably best suited to oilier skin types as on my combination skin, I found it just a tad too drying. That being said, it does cleanse beautifully. All you need is a tiny squirt (about the size of a pea) mixed with alot of water and it foams up very well. After cleansing, my skin felt very clean but it I usually use it on days where I'm wearing a full face of makeup. I definitely needed to moisturise after. The fragrance is a fresh/herbal and its a pale tea colour.
I can't comment on the packaging as I bought the pro-size off eBay (the 500ml one I bought from ebay was only slightly more than the 200ml/standard size my beautician was selling!) but I needed to add my own pump to it. At 500ml and only needing the tiniest squirt at a time, it looks like I'll be stuck with it for a verrrry long time!

Stay away if your skin is dry. It will make it worse. Didn't break me out. Smells nice. If you have really oily skin, then it might work for you.

This cleanser has a nice scent, and if you have really, really oily skin, you'll probably like it, but for my combo, acne-prone, t-zone oily skin, it was just too harsh/drying. I even use jojoba oil after I wash, and I just felt tight after washing with this cleanser.

I don't think this product is anything special. It is something that I can live without. I have switched and don't really miss it.

I bought this cleanser after one of those weeks where "your skin is just going crazy." The cleanser is light and rinses well without leaving any residue. It left my skin feeling really skin and controlled the oil that was throwing my skin out of control.

Great for oily skin types - i like this. It has a nice scent. Quite natural and fairly strong. It did a good job of cleansing but like i said ONLY for the quite oily types. Not reccommended by me if you just have a little combo skin, as it's quite strong on the skin. I actually have drier skin these days so i'll just stick to my beloved Neutrogena extra gentle.

I buy this product for my husband who has very oily skin. He loves it! I also work in a day spa, where men really gravitate toward this product due to its fairly masculine scent. It really cuts through the oil and leaves you with a nice matte finish.

I went for a facial in March, and the esthetician recommended this along with the toner for my oily skin.
I've been using it ever since, and my skin is SO much smoother and less red. I love it!

i'm amazed at how tiny an amount of this lathers up with some water and really makes the face squeaky clean.

This is a great, gentle cleanser for my combination (oily in summer) skin. It does a great job or removing my cleansing oil as well as sebum from my skin. It has a pleasant, soothing herbal scent. The newer bottles have a great pump that distribute a small amount of the product. It's just the right amount. Daily use of 1 bottle will last me months. I highly recommend this cleanser for congested, oilier skin types.

Wonderul product. This isn't a miracle face wash (no cleanser ever is), but a very reliable and soothing/gentle solution for oily yet sensitive skinned semi-acne prone people. I have oily & sensitive skin, and I've tried so many beauty products, most of which are too harsh for normal use. It's much better to go the route of using vitamin enriched moisturizing products for oily skin than to use acidic and acne busting products that dry out your skin and cause breakouts! This face wash smells wonderful (spa-like) and suds up when you use it. I use it with the Principal Secret Continuous Moisture w/Hydrospheres Lotion, a gentle exfoliator, and a vitamin enriched Loreal Toner.. the best beauty regimine I've ever used. And my skin glows!

I abselutly love this product. I'm on my second bottle now and recently bought 2 profesional size bottles so it will last me years. I dont need to use make up remover with this face wash, cause it get rid of everything, even stubborn mascara. I will definately stick withthis face wash. definately giving 5 lippy for this product and recomend it to people with oily skin. Suitable for guys too, cause my bf is sharing the face wash with me. :-)

This cleanser is excellent. It thoroughly cleans my oily skin, has a mild scent and best of all (I think) comes in a pump bottle. One little pump will do you so it will last forever. I highly recommend for oily skin.

This has been my only cleanser for years! It works great on my oily/somewhat acne prone skin. The scent makes me feel like I'm getting a facial every time I use it! It get great suds and leaves no film behind. The best!
