I first received a small tube of this as a GWP, and I liked it enough to buy a full size. However, the longer I used it the less impressed I was with it.
On the plus side, it smells lovely, and gives a nice, soft, luxurious foam. The packaging is very nice.
But considering it is a "mild" formulation, I found it kind of drying. I have combination skin, acne prone yet showing signs of aging around the eyes. But my t-zone is quite oily. In the hot, humid summer months, this wasn't too bad, but once fall came it just left me feeling dry and tight after washing. And when I tried it again in the winter, it stung.
I kept putting it away and taking it back out to try it again.I just didn't find anything too special about it. If it had worked out for me, I would say the price was reasonable. But I found it not any more special than say, baby wash. Just didn't work out for me. Eventually it ended up in the garbage.
Edited on 9/6/2010 Just received another tube of this as a GWP. Used it twice--after having used some newer things to cleanse my face, I am just shocked at how drying this "mild" facial soap is. Never again.

This is a great basic cleanser for me. I use this before bed and I love how soft it leaves my skin. You get a large bottle for pretty cheap- a bottle lasts a long time. Like another reviewer I love the feature on the cap that makes the bottle spillproof-wish more companies would use that idea. Overall good stuff!

I heard a lot of good things about this face wash, so I decided to try it out. I talked to the lady at the Clinique counter and sh set me up with the appropriate cleanser for my combination-dry, skin. I'm sad to say that for the money I paid for it, I was sadly disappointed. This facial soap hasn't done a thing for my skin. I know it takes your skin some getting used to when you switch to a new product, but I have been using this cleanser, along with the other products in Clinique's 3 step kit, for a good 2 months now and I haven't noticed anything. It does leave my skin feeling clean, without that tight dry feeling, but in terms of acne and keeping my skin clear it hasn't done anything.
On a positive note, I really enjoy the packaging of this product. I like how you can lock the pump. This makes it great for traveling or on the go, you can turn it to the lock position and throw it in your bag without having to worry about it leaking everywhere.

I use this at night, before i go to bed. First I take off makeup with a mac facial pad and then i wash my face with this to make it so everything is off nicely. I only use it before I go to bed because I feel it would be too drying after I used my toner, and even with moisturizer I think it'd probably still make my face drier than i want. So this cleanser is perfect to just simply wash the face and go to bed.
It makes my skin feel very, very clean and soft. Not as soft as my morning cleanser. I love feeling my face after i've cleansed with it. My skin feels great. I'm actually writing this review right after I washed my face with this. So the results are still fresh in my mind. I got tons of samples of this somehow. I don't even remember how I got them. These samples have lasted me a long time. I can't comment on how much a full bottle of this would cost or how good of quality the bottle is. I'm sure it's not too expensive. I bought the clinique toner in #2 and it only cost me $11.50 for 6 or 7 ounces. I've only got 2 or 3 samples left. each sample lasting around 4 or 5 uses. When I've finshed them i'll for sure go out and buy myself a full sized bottle of this cleanser.

Iíve used this cleanser on a few occasions at some friendsí houses (this cleanser seems to be quite popular indeed), and Iíve also received a sample. Every time Iíve used it Iíve noticed it to be too harsh for my sensitive skin. It turns my skin slightly red and irritated post-washing. Once again, it must the sodium laureth sulfate that has proven to be too much for my skin to handle. Otherwise, this is a well-formulated cleanser thatís probably great for non-sensitive skintypes because, after all, it works very well in removing light makeup and cleansing without drying.

Recieved a sample in GWP, and I really like it. Does not irritate my sensitive, oily skin. No redness no rashes. Nice smell not overpowering. My face feels smooth with no tightness.
Will purchase the full size when the sample runs out.

I have oily skin but I use this one instead of the oily skin formula as it has bad review in Paula Begoun's book. This one is the best cleanser ever, it cleans make up nicely and doesn't make my skin feel tight. It keeps it soft and really good for my acne prone skin. LOVE IT!

Inexpensive facial cleanser that seems very gentle to skin. I like the way it foams up and the way it feels on my skin when i cleanse my face. Seems to remove my makeup--haven't broken out at all and have been using for a few months now. Even my bf uses it.. he has sensitive skin and it works pretty well. I am probably gonna end up buying another after i try a bunch of other crappy and more expensive cleansers. pretty bottle too.

Sodium laureth sulfate is number two on the ingredient list, after water. This cleanser is a great degreaser, but like all degreasers, it's harsh on the skin. I didn't get any allergic reaction to this product, and it rinses off thoroughly. I find that the bar soap version leaves you skin feeling smoother. You need to dispense only a very tiny amount, this container of cleanser will last you a long, long time. I have stopped using this on my face, and used the remainder of the cleanser to wash my hands.

This works well for my Asian skin, which is combination-dry. Other brands somehow strip off to much moisture, cause rashes on my face or provides too much moisture and causes my skin to feel clogged.
personally i have found that you have to use it as part of the 3 step or it won't be as useful. I've tried various different brands of cleansers and stuff and have found 3-step to be perfectly functional for me (which to me is perfect), probably due to the exfoliation that step 2 does. My only grouse is they don't sell it in travel sized packs, which would have been useful when i go on business trips. I've had to switch brands recently so that I could buy a travel size pack, but it definitely dosn't work as well as the 3 step system
