I'm surprised at how much I like this stuff, even in the winter. I need a heavier moisturizer in winter regardless what I use to cleanse, but I really don't find this all that drying; not enough to stop using it, anyway! It cleans well, I don't find it stripping, and I use RAM a couple times a week in winter, more in warmer weather. I'm nearly done with my bottle, but since I have a couple other things to use up, I'll wait til Clinique starts doing their spring GWP in February before I repurchase.

This is a cleanser i really like!in the past I have used L'Oreal Pure Zone and Nivea Young, but decided to invest in a high end brand, to try. I must say i really notice a difference, it keeps my skin clean and leaves a wonderful soft feeling skin. It doesn't dry my dry-combination skin and I've never had better skin! Don't know if it's all down to this cleanser because I use the 3step system, but I love my skin now!!
It is more expensive than I'd like, but it lasts ages, and i'll gladly save up to repurchase. I have the liquid soap, but also bought the solid bar as backup, as it's much cheaper! Love!

So this cleanser is really amazing for people who have sensitive skin. Unlike Cetaphil, it ACTUALLY foams up a bit, so you can feel it. With Cetaphil, I just felt like I was putting liquid lotion and then washing it off. But the downside, the reason why I only gave it 4/5 because it doesn't have any acne benefits. Granted, it doesn't claim to do anything for acne, but it sure would be nice if it helped a bit with my acne. My skin definitely is in better condition, but when i have a pimple somewhere on my face, the cleanser won't help it.

I'm shocked that I'm saying this, but I actually really like this cleanser. It's very mild and I love the texture & how it just glides over your face. I have very oily, acne prone skin and have been using proactive for the last few years which is just way to drying for me. I bought this because I recently started taking accutane, and needed something much gentler on my skin. I can't tell if it makes me dry or if it's just from the medication, but it's nothing that moisturizer can't fix. Grant it, I need a separate exfoliator but the bottle is huge and I love the convenience of the no spill cap I think I'll try other other brands once I'm finished with this bottle just for comparison, but I'd say it definitely has re-purchase potential.

I got this as a GWP and put it away under the sink. My face started breaking out and I was out of my regular product so I decided to use this. Within 2 days my face had cleared up drastically! It dried up the zits/blackheads that were on my face. I will definately be purchasing in the future. It only takes a little dab to clean your entire face, so I think you really get your money's worth.

This is a great facial wash. Last a long time, because you only need a little drop to wash your whole face. It cleans my skin well, doesn't dry me out and it's great for travel! I switch off between this and the bar and it's just great! Just remember it's just a wash and it won't exfoliate, so don't expect too much from it!

I think a lot of people expect almost too much from this cleanser. I've just finished my first full bottle of it and I am extremely pleased. It's just one of those basic cleansers that I think everyone needs in their routine. I feel that the liquidness/ gel-like soap really did a great job cleaning my pores thoroughly. It doesn't dry my out too much. I usually use a moisturizer afterward but even if I don't, my skin is only the slightest bit tight but it doesn't crack or peel. Because it did a good job cleansing my skin, I've noticed fewer breakouts. I also have sensitive skin and this product did not irritate it! The lather is also really satisfying and thick- it helps with the cleansing! I feel like a lot of people over look this cleanser because they don't see a drastic improvement in their skin. But I'd like to point out that it didn't irritate or break me out and that's already a great achievement in any cleanser. I will repurchase! I really love this product.

This actually makes my face feel clean n soft after I'm done washing it. If I change everything else in my face routine I think this one I'll keep.

I can see why some people would give this a low rating but I think it's pretty great. I wouldn't buy it again but that's only because I want to try so many other brands before I can seriously say I'll be going back to this anytime soon.
I feel as if all Clinique facial care products are 50/50. All of the toners I have tried by Clinique are very heavy in alcohol or atleast the smell. I think it's the same with this facial soap. I can't tell what is in this cleanser but there is definitely a strong astrigent in it. My skin feels cleaner, tighter & looks clearer after I was my face with this cleanser. Sometimes if I overwash, my skin can get so tight that I have fine lines & dry in places. This is no surprise but it IS very strong cleanser. You don't need more than a drop of the product to create sufficient lather and foam. I don't get any pimples from using this either. I know there is no helping for the acne no for my forehead but I do wish this facial soap could help fix that or lessen it atleast. I'm always touching my face so there is no helping with oil control... I am to blame for that! I think if I quit my bad habit, I wouldn't be such a grease ball :(
*** If Clinique facial care products are TOO strong for your skin, maybe skip this. Or, ask a MA to give you a sample of this & test it out :)

Not for me! This cleanser stung, dried out then broke out my combination/oily skin. I've switched back to Philosophy Purity.
