I bought this product because I heard so much good things about it. It made my skin nice and made it look fresh but it did not prevent minor breakouts. It is suitable for people who do not experience breakouts but want a mild cleanser.

I love this cleanser-first thing I tried that truly has cleared my skin up noticably. I use this nightly, and follow up with Thayers Witch Hazel with Rose Extract and Rachel Perry Oil Free Moisturizer. So far, my active acne has decreased immensely, and the redness and irritation isn't as bad as it once ways. The bottle is very convenient, you get quite a bit of product. The smell is fresh and pleasant without being overwhelming. Awesome cleanser, I'll definitely rebuy!

I have acne, clogged, congested pores, etc. This did nothing for my skin.

I am using now the GM Collin acne kit and it has done an amazing job on my skin.

So far, this is my fave gentle cleanser. MB recommended this to me after I filled out the questionnaire. With this and the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser, I've had the best skin of my life so far! Plus, it's not too expensive and it lasts forever!

This is the only cleanser I'll ever use on my sensitive skin. It leaves my skin clean without suds/foam. Smells great too.

I received a generous sample of this with my MB order. This cleanser doesnít foam, but it cleans relatively well, with little residue. I certainly didnít like it enough to make it my regular cleanser, as it doesnít clean as deeply as I like, getting rid of oil and debris, and feeling invigorating (which is why Iím sticking with Murad Clarifying Cleanser). I have oilier skin, but this would be great for someone with normal/combination skin when breakouts and oiliness is not an issue. I wouldnít buy.

I really enjoyed the smell of this product - it's too drying for me right now (had to switch back to Cetaphil) but I look forward to using again.

I love this cleanser. I am new to Mario Badescu and I am so impressed so far! Its not irritating to my sensitive skin, and my skin has been glowing since i started using it ( i also started using the seaweed lotion and seaweed night creme) but altogether those three products have been great!

I LOVE the way this stuff smells, it's very relaxing, an awesome way to end your day when you get ready for bed. It's also a pretty, pearly green color. Oh, and it works, it might help if I mention that :P I can really feel the enzymes tingling and breaking up oil and grime, and it also leaves my skin really soft, I've found that not many cleansers can do both. It can irritate your skin if it's dry, especially in winter, or if you've had a recently had a sunburn, peel, microdermabrasion etc. If you're sensitive for any reason I'd suggest using something different.

A word of CAUTION: I bought the big 16 oz. bottle a while ago (it lasts FOREVER!) and I've lugged it around with me when I travel. It must have gone thru too many extreme temperature changes, or maybe it's just old, I'm not sure, but it's developed grainy bits and it seems harsher, so I think the AHAs might have gone bad. I still use it, but can't let it sit on my face like I used to, and it doesn't seem to be as effective. So, unless you wash your face 3 times a day or share with someone, I'd recommend buying the smaller size and not leaving it where the temperature is liable to go up and down dramatically.
