I loooooove this cleanser! It's such a light foam and it feels gentle against my skin. The exfoliating beads are pretty small, but it gets everything done! At the end of my wash, my face definitely feels smooth and filled with moisture. After a few uses, you can also tell that my skin has definitely cleared up and has brightened into a much even tone. I do have combination skin, and every so often I do break out. But when I feel like a pimple might be coming along, I wash my face with this and I can honestly say that I can already feel the swelling going down. And because of the evening-out complex, I only wear foundation/powder whenever I really need it (ie: nights out, parties). Leaving my face bare, I can't believe how many compliments I get on my skin alone. it's probably one of the best washes I use!

I'm not sure if this is helping even out my skin.. but I have very stressed skin. But it does make my skin look very fresh and nice right after I wash it. If only it stayed like that.. This cleanser doesn't foam too well but I've been using superfoamy shiseido. It has teeny little exfoliating particles which makes it feel like I'm really cleaning my face. My face always feels super clean after I use this, and it gets rid of all my makeup! Though I have to be careful around the eyes because of thise itty bitty exfoliators that can bypass even the most tightly shut eyelids into the soft squishy sensitive eye. Ouch.

I have been using this cleanser for 3 weeks. I have dry skin and this cleanser really makes it feel even drier when I am done. It also does not foam and it does not remove foundation completely. There are others out there that work better. I had great hopes for this product. Bummer

This is a very disappointing Neutrogena cleanser! I can't believe it, usually I love all their cleansers and skincare stuff but this one doesn't cut it. It has a nice creamy texture that's SLIGHTLY grainy and it foams up SO. BEAUTIFULLY...

- nice smell
- nice texture

- rinses TOOOO clean! my face actually squeaks and there's absoluetly NO MOISTURE left! and, i'm naturally SUPER DUPER oily! that's saying something.
- used it for 2 weeks, didn't make my skin even or fade marks

but if you're someone who likes the Shiseido Benefiance cleanser, get this, it's @ a fraction of the price, does the exact same thing, and smells nicer and lighter.

Doesn't exfoliate and doesn't remove makeup thoroughly. Exfoliation and removing makeup are 2 things I look for in a cleanser, and this cleanser does neither, so I will not be repurchasing. It might be OK to use in the morning just to remove oil on my face.

I'd buy it again if there were few other drugstore options and I was travelling and needed something bad. I *loved* the Body Wash (now discontinued), and this stuff isn't dissimilar to it. Foams up nicely, rinses cleanly, even gives me the feeling that it's "brightened" my skin. (I bought the moisturizer after I got rid of the facial wash, just because I liked the effect so much.)

However, the microbeads are so tiny that it's hard to avoid getting them where they shouldn't go on your face (eyes, nose, ears); I found that part frustrating. I guess I should stick with something like a wipe or pad for facial exfoliation.

I suppose my biggest issue with this product is that it went rancid after a few months of sitting on my shelf. It didn't stink, but it turned a brownish color. The other Visibly Even products didn't do that, just the facial wash. I tossed it.

But it's not bad stuff; I would buy it again in a pinch. But I'd power-rinse my face to get all the beads off, and throw the bottle out before it could go rancid again.

I love, love, love this facial cleanser. I started getting acne around the age of 13, and now I am 24 and this is the first face wash that I have come across that has properly cleaned my face and cleared up my blemishes. I have combo/sensitive skin. There is nothing that I hate about this product. I love the scent. I love how the product foams but also has very tiny beads in it so that I can gently exfoliate my skin everyday without any irritation. It even cleans off my make-up! The only issue that I have is the packaging. When it is almost empty, it's hard to get the rest of the product out. Overall this facial wash is a keeper.

I do like the Visibly Even line b/c it does seem to fade my acne scars better than nothing at all. The cleanser is weird. Mine had a funky smell, kind of dairy like, but the enzyme treatment has a similar scent so it must be the magic ingredient. It foams nicely once you add a good bit of water to your hands. It doesn't feel like it cleanses that well, it does an ok job. I prefer my skin to feel clean, and this doesn't do it for me.

I love this cleanser It's very creamy, with tiny microbeads that aren't too coarse. Water added, it foams up nicely. I have seen a major difference in my skin since using this line--I had some significant sun damage spots on the tops of my cheekbones, and they have faded nicely. It's an HG for me!

A little of this went a long way and the scrubbing particles were very hard to wash off adequately. It didn't hurt my skin but it didn't help either, really, so I returned it. The scent wasn't too bad.
