This is a review for the gel cleanser, not the milky cleanser. At first I found this cleanser kind of hard to work with. It stings the eyes and has slimier texture. update: have reformulated since then.does not sting eyes and is better. HG status

This is the least expensive facecare I have ever purchased. Funny that it is the only one that has not caused my skin to go insane. I will def. repurchase and I am very happy to have found such a great inexpensive ORGANIC product. EDIT - This started making my skin dry after the first few days, I have continued to use it during the summer when my skin is oilier but now that it is autumn this is not working for me, now using as bodywash.
P.S. - This whole line makes my skin itch and sting like crazy and I have no idea why

This is a nice, refreshing all natural facial cleanser. I have combination skin (oily T-zone, dry everywhere else), and I was looking for something non-drying that would gently remove oil, dirt, and makeup, and I believe that I have found it. I have tried Neutrogena Acne wash (nice, but still would get pimples), Desert Essence Tea Tree wash (super drying, lost a ton of eyelashes), and I occasionally still use Cetaphil (horrible chemical scent, but keeps my face clear). So I have been using this cleanser for the past two weeks and my face looks nice and smooth. I do not suffer from acne, I get the occasional "monthly" pimples like most gals, but my oily forehead and nose can be a problem. So i found this online and gave it a try. Well worth it for me, this is definitely a keeper! The scent will definitely wake you up in the morning :)

Horrible! After the third time using it, I woke up and had a red patch on my face full of little whiteheads!! I have oily/sensitive skin and I mostly prefer natural ingredients in skincare. However, I must have been allergic to this cleanser's ingredients, so I am definitely never buying it again.

This is a nice, bright scent in the morning, and it's really gentle on my face. No dryness or tightness, which a lot of other cleansers produce. I keep this in the shower and love it! My only complaint is that the pump dispenser stops working when there's still about a half inch or more of product in the bottom. I had to start opening the top and tapping it out. What a pain! Other than that, the scent and the gentleness of this are great.

I have combo skin and prone to breakouts. I was using lavender soap for a month but then it started drying my skin out. I decided to try this and I'm impressed with it. It's a clear thick liquid with a citrus scent ina pump bottle. It cleanses my skinv very well and I'm surprised that after using my toner, there's nothing on the cotton ball. My skin doesn't feel tight or dry afterwards and it ahsn't broken me out. It contains all natural ingredients without the harsh SLS. I would buy again.

This watery, barely-foaming cleanser has an awful metallic odor that makes it unpleasant to use. I used it as hand soap when I ran out of Softsoap, and it dried out my skin.

I think it's a good cleanser. It doesn't clean waterproof sunscreen. It cleans dirt and oil quite well. It 's good for normal to to oil skin. It can be overdrying for dry skin. I won't repurchase it again.

I am so confused about this cleanser, on one hand it contains such nourishing ingredients and cleanses PERFECTLY. On the the other hand, it dries the living heck out of my skin leaving it exhausted, stripped, flaky and "burning". Everything I apply afterwards burns the life out of my skin...and its because of this cleanser. Its not gentle, and IT DOESNT cause breakouts...in fact, its helped me with the breakouts becuase of the drying action, however I use AHA, as well at Retin-A and those combined with this...I WOULDN'T even have skin! It would be burned off! Sorry...not good for any skin type (Im oily btw and I found it drying, thats something in itself!).

Lovely cleanser. Washes everything including sunscreen and eye makeup away without leaving skin tight. Smells like fresh tangerines. And leaves my skin with a rosy glow. Even seemed to help clear up a breakout I was having. But alas it was too drying for my oily-but-dry skin. Let me know if anyone wants to swap me for it - it's basically full and with original box.

Nice basic face cleanser. It washes off all of my Bare Escentuals make-up as well as sunscreen and eye make-up. I have combo/oily skin and it does not dry out my skin. I have not noticed any skin texture/tone enhancement from using this product, but as a general face cleanser it works well, removes make-up and doesn't dry out my skin. It has natural ingredients also which is nice.

Im usually very bad at washing my face before I go to bed, so I got the aveno cleansing pads and they have gotten me to wash my face a lot more because they are so convienient. I was hesitant to switch to another cleanser but I wanted something more natural and something that doesnt test on animals (aveno does). Im really glad I got this. I use one of those scrubby gloves and put the facial cleanser on it. The smell is great. Orangy and fresh. My skin feels clean after and it gets off most of my makeup (i always use a makeup remover on my eyes /kiss my face brand/ anyway) Overall Im really happy with this product and Id buy it again. The packaging is nice too. Maybe not so hot for travel because its in a pump but you can always put some into a nalgene bottle for trips.

I tried this for several weeks and found that my skin eventually started to look blotchy/red. My skin is sensitive/combination with a tendency to dryness, and there must be something in the cleanser that irritated my skin. Once I stopped using the cleanser, my skintone evened out. A week later I tried the cleanser again because I thought the blotchiness was caused by something else. In about two days, my skin started to look blotchy and when I discontinued using the face wash (again) it went away again. My husband likes it, though!

This product is very effective at cleaning but leaves skin tight/flaky. I wont use this everyday but its good to use before applying biore strips.

I am so glad I tried this cleanser! Its very gentle, yet removes most makeup and oil (you'll need something else for waterproof makeup). It smells nice, and despite all the botanicals has never irritated my skin, which is extra sensitive from using Avita. UPdated: I need to find another bottle of this...I switched to acne cleansers over the summer and never replaced the old bottle. I am using OoO Foaming now, but I'd really rather have another bottle of this. UPdate This has been dc'd. Similar product is still out there but different formula.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Very Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This cleanser is very effective at removing makeup, but that's about it as far as I can tell. Not convenient for travel but packaging is okay for home use. I dont feel like this does enough for my breakout prone skin and I haven't really noticed any improvement in skin tone. Won't buy again but not a terrible product.

I cannot say enough positive things about this cleanser. It feels refreshing and it removes all of my makeup with ease. My skin never feels stripped after cleansing. My husband has even taken to using this to cleanse with.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Hazel
This is a great, basic cleanser that I keep by the sink and use whenever I'm in a hurry. It does a good thorough job on my oily skin, not great on the make up removal though, and what makes it great IMO is that it rinses easily and completely. Doesn't over dry and smells great with good, quality, gentle ingredients. And a fair price.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
This cleanser is not bad at all, I used it only about 20 times but I liked it a lot more then most cleansers Iíve used because itís not drying, it foams really well and it rinsed off very fast. Great choice for somebody that has oily / normal or even acne prone skin.

Got this for 40% off at The Vitamin Shoppe. Decided to try it because of the ingredients. I like a foaming cleanser and this certainly fits the bill. A little amount is all you need, so it should last a long time. Normally I do not like a fragranced cleanser, but with this one the fragrance is natural and a very enjoyable "orangy" one. Does a good job of cleansing. I use it at night with a baby wipe to be sure I can remove all of my "stay-put" makeup. Comes in a nice pump-type bottle. Would repurchase this.
