Honestly, I thought I would hate this. I usually can't stand facial cleansers that don't foam up and I was expecting to want to send this back. So not the case, this stuff is awesome. It's the only cleanser I've found that doesn't dry out my skin or leave it too oily, and helps calm my hellish skin. I'm not too crazy about the price but for what it does, I can live with it.

*EDIT* I still like this a lot but not as much as when I first started using it. I don't trust it to take off all my makeup (but I'm kinda paranoid about makeup removal because I'm so acne prone) but it's a good balanced cleanser.

I've used this product off and on for the past couple of years, and I don't know why I ever stop using it every time. It removes all of my makeup (note: I only wear concealer, powder, bronzer and blush), seems to provide gentle exfoliation and leaves my skin feeling fresh. And the smell is DIVINE!!

The only tiny thing that I don't like about this cleanser is that it leaves my skin slightly dry, BUT that is easily fixed with a moisturizer after.

I also use their Aloe Lotion, seaweed night cream, glycolic gel and an eye cream (can't remember which one off hand). I think their line is great and fairly minimalistic as far as ingredients go, which is important for my sensitive skin.

Will definitely stick with this line for a while as long as it continues to work so well for me.

Really dissappointed in this brand. I've heard all the rave reviews and decided to get this cleanser, the grapefruit toner and oil free moisturiser and none of them were any good! This cleanser did nothing, not even it's basic function of cleansing.

It didn't really do anything for me. I used it morning and night, though it didn't really remove my facial make up very well at all, i ended up having to resort to my Simple wipes.
It had a light, cooling gelee texture and didn't actully foam (i'm not entirely sure if its meant to though).

Didn't make much difference to my complexion.

This is a very pleasant cleanser, which is a non-foaming gel. It washes clean and is rather refreshing to use. It cleaning ability is good if you are not wearing a lot of makeup and the smell is pleasant. The concentration of acids is not enough to do anything so it is very gentle. The only caveat I have is that the ingredients are very basic and it is essentially glycerine. There is nothing advanced about this cleanser and if you donít like the thought of rubbing glycerine into your face, its best to give this a miss. The nozzle is quite good but a pump would be better. I enjoyed the entire bottle but would not repurchase simply because itís too basic a formula. This cleanser would be suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive.

This is my HG facial cleanser!!! It's also the first MB product I tried and now I'm hooked. I purchased the large 16 oz bottle and it has lasted just over a year and that's with me and my bf both using it. I prefer to buy this direct from MB and have it shipped since Kit charge AU$36 for the small bottle. Some people have commented they don't like the smell but that is one of the things I love most about this cleanser - it's like a morning dew rainforest/freshly mown grass scent. It was unusual to get past the fact this cleanser does not foam but you definitely notice that your face is deeply cleaned after you wash the gel off.

This is actually a very pleasant product to use. Feels nice on the skin when you wash :). But this isn't good for my skin. I could imagine it being nice for it when i'm older maybe and when i'm not so prone to breakouts.

This is the first MB product Iīve tried so far and I can honestly say I LOVE IT! It's a non-foaming gel that removes face make-up and leaves my skin feeling clean and moisturized. This DOES NOT dry out my skin and DOES NOT clog my pores. Prior to this I used Johnsons Head to toe baby wash but Mario Badescu Enzyme cleansing gel works much better for my oily skin. I like the packaging, it's simple yet easy to use. I also like that it's not tested on animals and has very short ingredients list.

INGREDIENTS: Deionized Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Papaya (Carica Papaya Fruit) Extract, Grapefruit (Citrus Grandis Fruit) Extract, Monomide, Triethanolamine, Methylparaben.

I bought it last week and I think I'm starting to love this cleanser. It's so fragrant and I love how it's gentle on my skin. It's not foaming but it's still kind on my skin. I observed that my pimples are still not gone but at least they are not multiplying. I will repurchase it for sure. Just need to save up more! Love MB products.
