I love most Suki products, including their foaming cleanser, but wow, this product is astonishingly bad. I'm just glad I got it as part of a kit and didn't pay full price. I tried it for the first time tonight, and when I squirted it into my hand, my nostrils were assaulted with what I can only describe as an acetone nail polish remover scent. I don't know if it was the alcohol or what, but the smell was so chemical that I almost couldn't put the stuff on my face. I persevered and immediately regretted it, because it stung my skin. When I rinsed it off, ALL of my make-up was still there, but had taken on a filmy white cast due to the layer of stickey gunk sitting on top of it. I touched my face and it felt stickey and filmey, not a clean fealing by any means. I tried to remove the gunk with the accompanying toner, and while the cotton pad contained a layer of makeup, the gunk was still on my face. I figured it was normal and tried out the face mask that was also included. This I did like, but that's another review. At any rate, the gunk was still there when I rinsed off the mask. Astounding! They should use this stuff to coat engine parts, cus it ain't goin anywhere. Suffice it to say, I'm never trying this stuff again.

Great for cold weather cleansing, so you don't deplete moisture from your facial skin. A little greasy, but still good. Rinses off ok.

I have been pleased with most of the Suki products I've tried, but this is pretty much the worst cleanser in the world. If when you wash your face you want your cleanser to remove NOTHING while depositing a weird waxy film, than this is the product for you. I have dry skin and I am not one of those people who get freaked out by a bit of residue, and can even enjoy a variety of products from the cold cream family (Albolene, anyone?). But this stuff is just gross. I have been desperately trying to create uses for it cause I hate to waste. Right now it is my occasional stand -in for shaving cream, and even then all it really does is clog my razor. I give it a point for it's natural ingredients and nice smell.

Man, is this stuff expensive, but totally worth it. Never has my skin actually felt BETTER after cleansing- usually it's dry and tight before it sorts itself out. This cleanser takes off any foundation I'm wearing as well as my mascara, but leaves my skin feeling moist, balanced, and even toned. Total love.

I like everything about this cleanser and I would have given it a 5 star rating but it left a bit of a residue on my face. I did purchase the toner to go along with the cleanser and I like it. I do not use a night cream. My face was not dry or irritated in the morning after cleansing at night.
I am not crazy about a pump bottle, but there is good and bad to everything. The pump disperses a tiny amount of product, which is good. Normally you get a big glob of stuff so you have to purchase more product sooner. The pump helps protect the cleanser from contanimation.
I should add that I don't wear make up so I don't know how well it works for removing make up.

I tried suki products because of the rave reviews. Unfortunately, the results could vary from individual to another. I was totally blown away by the results for the first few days but after trying the products for 2 weeks, I notice that my skin began to show tiny bumps all over. I thought that it might be the result of over exfoliating so I slowed down on the cleanser. My bumps did not clear out , had scarring and worse, I also got some acne in some parts that I never had before. I have always wanted to incorporate organic products into my regimen but it turned out that my skin is not responding well. I have heard about "talulah", has anybody tried them yet? I went back to my previous routine (before suki) with Benzoyl Peroxide and scared to try anything "green" because of suki. Also, I have read that lemon oil (which one of the main ingredients in suki products) , though has antiseptic properties, can cause pigmentation scarring. Any thoughts? Thanks so much...

I have purchased this product more than once (for my very very sensitive skin), and while it is non-irritating, it definitely requires more than one wash to clean your face (sometimes more than two). I liked it at first because I began using it after a serious reaction to Dr.Hauschka and I was just happy that it did not leave my face burning and itching.
It might be in the method of use (cloth versus washing with your hands), but at times it leaves a milky film that is not very easy to remove. A bummer at any price but especially at $30/bottle.
Suki has other decent products, but for cleansing my face, I switched to Talulah Forest Mint Creamy Cleanser (another organic product) and it is fab! I can even use it on my eyes. I don't see any reviews for this product yet, and apparently I need to write 20 reviews before I can add a new product. So, barring anyone else writing one first, my Talulah review is forthcoming as soon as I finish 19 more reviews! Given the many years (and dollars) that I have spent on make up and skin care, 19 seems like a low number!

This is the first makeup review that I have written, and maybe even the last one. I usually don't write about makeup, but THIS cleanser is AMAZING. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
Okay, so I have sensitive skin. I used to be a bit oily around my forehead as well (I have side bangs, which made the oiliness worse). I was browsing around this food market, when I saw this cleanser. The label said the cleanser was for sensitive skin, so I decided to give it a try (It did take a bit out of my wallet.. 30 something dollars).
Let me tell you this: this cleanser is wonderful. I used to be oily in my forhead area, now the oilness is gone. My face became from being covered with a few blemishes to no blemishes and clogged pores AT ALL. The oily residue is okay, because I usually use a mild exfoliator afterwards (from H20) which gets rid of the oilness. Then I moisterize with the Body Shop Tea Tree Oil moisterizer (I don't usually use body shop things bleh but this moisterizer goes well with this cleanser). This way, my face has a wonderful, fresh feeling.
If you haven't tried this cleanser..GO TRY IT. You won't be sorry.

Wanted to love it, but it didn't actually remove any makeup when I washed with it. For its price, I wanted it to smell good, look good, feel good, AND actually cleanse my face! (I know...I'm picky like that.)

My sister has been using Suki products for a while now including their cleansing lotion. I happened to try it when I was out of facial cleanser and really was pleased! It smelled good, felt nice on my skin and left it not tight but refreshed. My sister has really dry skin and this has been working really well for her along with the rest of the Suki skin care line. I'd purchase if it weren't for the price tag but I do recommend this if you have dry and irritated skin!

The smell in this products is delicious! However is does not remove hardly any of my make-up even after two washes and toner there is sill residue and a film (which I don't mind as much)
Sadly after about a month of use I have more acne, dry patches and larger pores. Sensitve/dry types in dry climates should be careful with this one.

This is a very gentle cleanser, but is still able to remove make up without drying out my skin. It's a bit on the pricey side ($24) for the small amount you get (5.7 oz). The ingredients are all natural. It doesn't contain any crazy ingredients that are impossible to pronounce.
Kaolin, cocoa butter, organic coconut oil, lemon oil, beeswax, natural vitamin c, vegetable glycerin, lecithin, gum xanthan, pure, steam distilled essential oils.

This cleanser is so gentle and does not break my sensitive comb aging skin out AT ALL ... and practically everything break me out .. so I am very impressed. I use it after the Suki Clay and they work together to give me glass-smooth clear skin ... I am so happy with this product!

first, i have dry sometimes sensitive skin. i've been using the zia moisturizing cleanser and have no problems. i really like it as it is gentle.
i have tried suki's lemongrass cleanser and just plain love it! my HG exfoliator. therefore i want to try their other products. as i was running out of the zia's, i went to elliotts to pick up another but they didn't have it. i did saw all the suki products on the shelf, so i squeezed out a sample of the cleanser to see what the smell is like and really like the smell. so i bought it.
when i got back, i almost return this cleanser without trying because of the reviews about how it leaves a film behind and that lemon oil causes pigmentation. i finally decided to try it and see for myself and return it later if it doesn't work out.
i thought i'd actually read that lemon oil (or lemon juice?) lightens spots but since it's more than half way down the ingredients list and it washes off anyway, i didn't have to worry about it. and if it does lighten my small pigmentation, even better.
it's been almost a week and i love this thing, even more so than the zia's! it smells wonderful, very gentle yet my skin is feeling so clean. i didn't experience any film on my skin after rinsing off. the cream is also not sticky. i use about 3 small pumps, massage it onto my face for 30 seconds to 1 minute and rinsed it off. it does a fantastic job of cleaning and again it is gentle. it's non-foaming so i like that too and goes on like a cream.
i am so glad i gave it a try and will repurchase again after i run out. it comes in 5.7 oz so plenty there to last a while.
i love a lot of products from suki and zia and cannot wait to try more of their stuff. at this point, i have found my HG brands and they definitely make my face look much smoother, healthier and i love it. every winter i am usually trying to find something moisturizing enough to not make my skin itchy and dry. this winter, i have no such problems.
EDIT 3/24/08: using this every night and day dries my skin out. therefore i'm taking it off my routine list. i still love the smell but i can't use it. it's probably a bit too harsh for me. i'm back to using zia's moisturizing cleanser and it doesn't dry my skin out at all with daily morning and night uses.

Beware acne prone/pimple prone ladies- do not use this cleanser. It leaves a slight lotion-y film on your face even after rinsing well and I just couldn't get over that fact. I didn't even have to use lotion afterwards. I also think this gave me little flesh colored bumps on the sides of my face where it is normally clear. to add insult to injury- it contains lemon oil- while good for cleansing and slight disinfecting, also increases pigmentation (scars). That I learned from the Baumann Skin Type Book.
So while this cleansing lotion would be perfect for people with dry skin and hardly ever breakout and don't have any dark spots, this is not for me. Don't be fooled by the natural, organic marketing goodness of this product like me.

Would I buy this again? Try to stop me! Suki's products fit my organic lifestyle and they work wonders on my skin. I have spent the past couple of years trying a variety of skincare and makeup and have fallen in love with this organic wonder. The entire line is wonderful. This cleanser fully cleanses all the makeup, even on eyes, without stripping or irritating my skin. It leaves my skin soft, supply and glowing. I love it. The only side is that it is rather expensive. Check out their site... www.sukisnaturals.com.

I have extremely sensitive skin which is severely prone to breaking out - I've been on countless medications both oral and topical for acne throughout the years. I finally had cleared up with a combination of Differin Gel and Benzaclyn and using just plaiin out Cetaphil soap and a moisturizor (all be it one with the bad stuff like mineral oil and the like). I ran out of Differin Gel and just thought I'd get away with the soap since my face was clear. WRONG! Needless to say my skin went haywire and broke out plus I made it worse by constant picking!
I finally went back on the topical meds, but it just didn't seem to be working as well as it used to....plus I had all these little bumps I could see that I just knew had little white "seed like" plugs inside of them that had to come out. I tried endless acne treatments for cleaning with s. acid and all the other popular synthetic junk - I even tried going holistic by using apple cider vinegar. Nothing worked.
Then I came across evanhealy products in our newer local health food store....I was having some progress but didn't like it fully...so I tried another brand sold there - Suki Naturals. I LOVE THIS STUFF. I use several products from this line - the cleanser, the toner, the scrub/cleaner, the clay for spot treatment, the serum, and the brightening cream. My face looks fabulous now with loads fewer break outs, and thanks to the brightening cream, my previous acne scarring marks are going away and becoming clear! Love it!1

I was delighted to find this product at Whole Foods, it sounded perfect for me, with sensitive skin, a bit dry from living in the desert we call Los Angeles, having run out of my cleanser and ready for something "new." After washing with this lotion there was a kind of slick film left on my skin, which I didn't much like, but I figured it was protective, and I probably needed it! After a week of using it, I realized that my skin was drier than ever, and none of my usual beloved products was helping. I didn't dream it was my new natural cleanser. Another week passed. Panic. I figured out that the best thing to do was eliminate the most recently added product I was using, the cleanser! Now my skin is back to normal (it only took three days!) and I realize that I have to be as careful with "natural" products as I am with commercial ones.
