My skin is super dry; so I need to exfoliate a lot to keep the flakes away. I'm loving this! Doesn't feel dry. And the price is great

This cleanser is wayyyy to harsh for everyday use (for me at least). I used it for a week straight, and my skin became irritated and my acne just got worse. My skin is combination (oily in the T zone, and dry on my cheeks and jawline). The majority of my acne is hormonal and occurs on my jawline and chin, where it is relatively dry. This product is probably better for oily skin types. Another turn-off for me is the scent. It smells just like elmer's glue. If scents bother you, then I would not buy this. One last thing, if I put this product on my cheekbones, I would get a strange burning sensation in my eyes that would actually make me tear up. It only lasts a few seconds, but it is very unpleasant. I now use it as a once a week mask and am careful to not get it anywhere near my eye/cheekbone area. I leave it on for about 5-10 minutes, use a clarisonic to buff it off, and my skin feels really soft afterwards. It does help, I just feel you need to find the frequency of usage for you so it does not irritate the skin.

This is by far my HOLY GRAIL cleanser. Nothing... nothing compares to this cleanser. I've gone into fancy department stores and tried samples of their cleansers, from philosophy to dior, and all have left my skin tight and dry after rinsing (the typical soap tight feel that requires a gimmicky toner afterwards to 'correct' this stripping damage.)
This is the only cleanser that does not leave my skin dry and the only cleanser that can remove my mascara. I have been using it for more than 10 years now. Love it, love it, love it and will never be satisfied with anything else. Like with any new product, try a sample or smaller size first. If it doesn't work for you, use the rest as a body wash or make-up brush cleaner.
Btw, a little truly goes a long way. When the mama figure of Serious Skin used to say a 'pea size' amount is enough...she wasn't kidding. A face brush... even better.

DO NOT use this item. I am now in the process of correcting all the damaged caused by this product. It made my skin really sensitive to the sun where now I have hyperpigmention and get rashes on my face. I have never even burned with the sun. It also enlarged my pores and a few acne scars! I trashed all these items and some others almost $350 worth, and I used them for only a month! STAY AWAY!

Distinctly excellent. I do not think i have ever used any face products or combination of skin care products which have truly made such a difference and so quickly (noticed difference after 1 week use). I do not have much acne, just hormonal breakouts, nor major lines (yet, cross fingers), but this brightened up my face, made it more even toned and really just naturally beautiful skin. It takes off all my make up and i dont even need a toner afterwards. Eye make up remover yes but nothing else. I dont have major skin issues, but do love to buy and use foundation or powder and now i really truly do not even need it maybe just a dusting of powder to mattify or create a more even base. I bought this off hsn in a package with the serum, gommage mask and moisturizer. I did not have sensitivity issues with any of the products as some people do. The smell does suck but its not horrible. I would definitely buy again and again. I have used Lancome skin care products, drug store, Clinique, and different specialty/natural soaps. This really worked for me and i am rarely so emphatic or distinctly see such a difference with skin care products.

I used this product years ago in high school and recently found it in Canada again and am so happy! I have tried TONS of drug store cleansers, Body Shop, Clinque, Arbonne, Pro Activ ... the list goes on and haven't found one I love. If you are used to cleansers that foam up, this isn't one of them. It goes on kind of like a cream, no lather or bubbles but you can feel it breaking down the gunk on your face. At night I leave it on for a few minutes like a mask to deep clean. It does smell like glue, but I can overlook that fact because it works so well. I paid $21 CAD for a 4 fl oz pump but it's worth it. (Also love that it comes in a pump) You can sometimes get it as part of a kit with other SSC products for a better deal.

I have been using this cleanser for years. I will continue to repurchase this product. I seriously can't live without it.
Age: Unknown Skin: Acne-prone, Dark Hair: Brown Eyes: Black
i like this cleanser but it doesn't like me. it tends to burn the skin around my mouth and the area between my upperlip and nose, which sucks because it makes the rest of my face peel nicely and it reveals nice skin underneath. even without the burns i couldnt use this daily because its just too stong for me. its a little too much for my face i dont think my skin likes glycolic acid too well and the burns definitely make me hesitant to use any other glycolic acid product on my face

Still using this product regularly after 1.5 years - I still LOVE it! My fiance actually uses it occasionally, and he is skeptical of almost everything that costs more than Clearasil. His skin is normal to dry, mine is combination-oily, and it's been amazing for us both. It works wonders brightening up a dull complexion, exfoliating dead skin cells, and clearing up skin (not that I've had much trouble more than a zit or two during that time of the month, especially since getting hooked on this stuff). Still great during humid months. I take a break for a few days and switch to a gentler soap if it gets very dry in the winter.
During this time, I've only reordered from HSN once - you get 2 bottles for about $36.
You must try this!
(From last year...) - I've now been using this product for the past 3 months with crystal-clear skin. I hope it stays as the weather warms and seasons turn.
If not, I will return to it come fall and winter.
Definitely try this out if you are looking for something gentle but highly effective for dry-skin acne, rosacea, or even just general good upkeep.
Worth its weight in gold for the near-instant improvement!
