This cleanser is definitely a Holy Grail product for me. I believe there is a lot of confusion regarding this product. Yes, it is a cleanser, but its not really meant to be used JUST as a cleanser. Itís a treatment product that you use AFTER you cleanse. The way I use it, (btw, I have very combo/very sensitive/acne prone/sun-damaged skin/fair medium tone skin) is the second step of a double cleanse, or the first step in a morning cleanse if Iím feeling a bit oily in the morning. The HG combination Iíve found most effective to (remove eye makeup!) first cleanse with Mario Badescuís Keratoplast cream cleanser (smells amazing) on a DRY face, then rinse, then this cleanser that I leave on for as long as I can (best in shower), then rinse. This product smells very luxurious and yes its expensive, but the bottle will last six months easy with twice daily use. Iíve used this cleanser combination for over a year, and I havenít been happier. Four lippyís because I must follow with a toner (not to clean-if you need a toner to clean, you need a different cleanser) to rehydrate my skin before face cream. If I wait a bit too long, I can feel a bit dry, but itís to be expected for a cleanser thatís not marketed as Ďhydratingí.

One of the better products of Elemis but too expensive, leaves skin supple and smooth.

I love this cleanser. I use it with my Mia Clarisonic. It cleans well but doesn't leave my skin tight or overly dry feeling. And I've had clear skin since using it. It feels very gentle and makes a modest lather. It is rather expensive tho so I'm trying a different brand's enzyme cleanser and hope it's just as good, if not, I'll be dishing out the dough for this cuz it is great and might be my HG.

I received a trial sample, maybe I can get two-three uses out of it but the smell itself is amazing nothing I've ever smelt in a skin care line before it's--luxurious might be the right word! I absolutely love it. Even though I use cheap d/s face wash I believe this product is worth the fifty dollar price tag!

I have sensitive skin, with hormonial acne and some scarring. Harsh products make me brake out even more, so I wanted a exfoliator which cleaned my skin, but without irritation. So I searched MUA and found the Tri-enzyme cleanser.
I use this with my Clarisonic MIA, both morning and night, and I am very pleased with the results. It cleans very well, an old dead skin, for example on healing acne, sloughs off. It does not make me break out and a little goes a long way, I use only two pumps each time.
I previously used Dermalogica Daily microfoliant (which is also a great product) but my new regime works much better and saves me some money.

I reeeallly like this product. Have used it for a couple of months by now. And my skin has never looked better, it has totally cleared up my skin.

I believe a lot of people think they can use this product as a cleanser, but i dont get it like that, i think you should use it with your regular cleanser.

I use it only in the evening after i have washed my face with the elemis rehydrathing something cleanser, which i use both morning and evening + the elemis abricot toner.

That combo gives me great great great results, and I find it real gentle and hydrating on my skin.

Unfortunately this doesn't really do anything for my skin to make me want to use it again. The packaging is great, really easy to use and dispenses just the right amount. the product smells pleasant. it doesn't sting or make my skin dry but it hasn't stopped me breaking out and i don't see any difference in my skin whatsoever so for this reason i would never buy it again. i've stopped using it on my face to see if my spots clear up. i'll start using it again in a week or so to see if it makes any difference. I left a review for Suki lemongrass as that is my HG cleanser and Elemis is not a patch on that! I think it cost me £18 so i know there are more expensive out there but it's pretty expensive for a product that doesn't produce results.

I got this cleanser not because I spent $42 on it but bc I used to work for the line and got to take home an unopened tester and a GWP. The smell of this cleanser alone would make me pay the full price for it (well...maybe not) but it would make me consider it! Also this cleanser feels like a dream on my skin. I took off 1 lippie for the price, obviously, and because I don't believe in the tri-enzyme business. They don't work! It's false advertising. That's what scrubs, AHAs & BHAs are for.

I really liked this product and was eager to use it every night (because of the sensitive skin I use it once a day - at night). Didn't have any problem, nor irritations. It helped to keep my skin soft and bright. Only a small amount is needed so it will last long enough (more than the expiration date will allow me to use it, so i believe a smaller tube with lesser price would be nice option). Really pricy, but i got it as a set with some other products, so it was ok.

I think that this is an alright cleanser. I got it in a GWP when I purchased another Elemis Body Brush. I really like the peel from this line but this particular product was just average in my opinion. It cleanses well (after I remove my makeup of course), smells great, and doesn't strip my skin. However my skin has been slightly irritated after using this twice a day (no problems if I only use it at night). Since my weekly exfoliating treatment is a bit of papaya skin rubbed onto my face or a bit of fresh pineapple juice, I figured that the enzymes wouldn't be a problem for me. I'm not sure if it's the enzymes or the fragrance, but something in this made my skin react in a bad way. My homemade AHA cleanser with powdered milk leaves my skin feeling just as soft, smooth, and radiant without the irritation that was involved with using this one. Otherwise I would say it's a typical high end facial wash. Very luxurious and creamy, and a little goes a long way. But I don't think I'll be purchasing the full size. Still, this is a good alternative for someone who likes a daily AHA but doesn't want to go to glycolic acid.
