Lots of cleansers really make my cheeks burn, this one didn't.
However, my skin felt really tight, I was really itchy on my eyes and cheeks. I also flake like crazy and got pimples and whiteheads on my normally flawless skin.
Thank god I bought the smaller package.

I ordered some skin care from lovelyskin.com and got a pile of Sebamed samples, including about 5 sample packets of this. Each was good for about 3 washes, depending on whether I used it just for face, or for face and chest/upper back, so I'd say I've used it for about 15 washes, or 7 1/2 days so far. It is a light green, pearlescent liquid that, strangely for a product marketed for sensitive skin, had a distinct but light spicy/herbal scent. Usually, fragrances are very risky for me, but luckily this did not cause any redness or irritation, and seemed fine on my sensitive, oily and acne prone, rosacean skin. I'd think they'd reduce the risk it would cause reactions by getting rid of the fragrance, but, whatever.
Anyway, this cleanser did a great job of removing oil, dirt and even mu, w/o overly drying or irritating my skin. My skin did not feel tight, flaky, or dry after using it, and it rinsed clean. The pkg says it is pH level 5.5, which may be the key factor in reducing irritation. I could not use it on the drier areas of my body, as it is a very dry winter where I am. In summer or more humid climates it's probably fine all over unless you have very dry skin in any environment. A large bottle at the drug store costs $12.99, and a little goes a long way. I am liking it better than the Cerave Foaming, which actually seems to have better ingredients. I am willing to bet that I would like the Cerave better if it also had pH 5.5 - I am thinking maybe the higher pH in the Cerave makes what should be a less irritating formula more irritating than this, which had more potentially irritating ings but was easier on my face in this very dry winter.
Overall, good stuff, but may not be best for super dry skin, and you may want to test for rxns to the fragrance before using a lot of it.

I never post reviews..EVER! I've been using this product for about 3 months now, and I absolutely love it! i have combination skin, and I have suffered from acne for most of my teenage years, and adult acne as well. I've noticed a drastic change in my skin since I've been using this product. It's absolutely amazing. My outbreaks have decreased substantially, and my skin is a lot softer and brighter. I definitely recommend this product :)

I have an extremely sensitive skin but when using this for cleansing I never experienced any ugly skin reactions. You only need a tiny bit of product per application and skin feels fresh and clean afterwards. I don`t have to use any extra make-up remover, so it`s very effective without being overly drying. And it isn`t expensive either (at least here in Germany) - I dont`t even have to rebuy the whole bottle as there are refill bags. After years of buying high-end product ranges without any visible improvements, I like the idea that it is so simple and time-saving with only a minimum amount of ingredients. I even stopped using toner - afterwards I just apply the basic sebamed moisturizer and my skin has never before looked so even and radiant. Back to nature - my foundation ended up in the trash!

This is a product to love!! Ok so i have this combo w/ a little bit acne skin, i started to use this product after being in love w/ some sebamed products that i'll review too, so before this gel i used the avene cleanance, but it's expensive, so i was searching for something else, i found on the sebamed stand, actually one thing i would tell the bad is the packaging, it doesn't say for what skin type this product is, i mean it says for sensitive skin, but you know there are oily-sensitive, and dry-sensitive skin, the way i figured stuff out were that it says that is cleans pores (and it does it perfectly) and I later saw it's brother that has olive oil in it which means that it's the one for the dry, and the one without oil is for combo/oily (Duh!), okay so this perfectly does the cleaning job, and doesn't dry out in winter right now. It is a green colored gel inside, that has a strong though a pleasant smell, it's also very economic, you need very little of it. Oh the sebamed products which i use not long ago are the Clearface toner and ClearFace care gel which I use afterwards, very good not too expensive cleanser. Sorry i took solong though.

Ive been using this product for a few months now and I think I would most likely purchase it again. It is very easy on my skin and doesnt dry it out like other harsh cleansers. I have noticed my skin getting softer since I started using this product, as opposed to dryness and redness I would get using salicylic acne washes.This stuff seems to work really well with cera ve moisturizers.
It also works as a body wash and as someone else suggested, I think it would make a great brush wash! Maybe try a sample before you buy if you can get your hands on one as it is a little pricey, but it lasts forever! The pump on the bottle is really nice. as time has gone on & my skin has become smoother I only need about 1 pump in the morning and 2 pumps at night after makeup removal.
The only things I dont like are that it contains dye and smells a bit strong.

oh, i so wanted to love this cleanser. i love muti-tasking products and based on many reviews, saw that it can be used as a makeup remover and a face cleanser and a body wash and even as a shampoo. and it ph close to human skin. wonderful, no?
well, after only i wash, my face has red marks all over it, strange spots and what looks like scratches. i though, ok if i cannot use it as a cleanser, i can still use it as a body wash. right? wrong. after using it in a shower, my palms are red and itchy, so are the soles of my feet. i am so sad. this product is designed for sensitive skin. yes, my face is sensitive, but i never knew my body is so sensitive too.
well, i checked sebamed website and learned that this line was developed by a german doctor for people with acne and oily skin. bingo! i dont have either of those.
so, if you have oily skin or problem skin, this cleanser could work wonders. but for dry, sensitive, no-acne skin, this cleanser is a no-go.
btw, loved the smell, especially as a body wash. very fresh, invigorating. none of those horrific, allergy inducing, chemically produced fake smells ,,,ergh looking at you "bath and body works".

I love this product so much! I have been used many expensive and famous products to get rid of my acne and oily skin, but i learnt that simple products are better. I remove my make-up by Bioderma Sebium H2O Solution and then use Sebamed Liquid. It really helps my acnes and blackspots.

I have never been a big fan of foaming facial cleanser but I had to try this as I really liked the Sebamed moisturizer for sensitive skin. Well this stuff is truly amazing. It takes away all my heavy duty foundation/BB cream/sunscreen whatever I use that day and this is the first time in my life that I have seen my pores so clean after one wash. I don't think I have ever seen my face like this, crystal clear clean. Having said that I am still waiting for my final verdict on this. As it is currently a bit too drying and tends to burn my skin after a couple days of using it. I will see how far I can get and if this is just my skin adjusting to a new facial cleansing line. I do hope so as the result so far is just awesome. A clean face with soft skin and smaller pores. I will update this later.
Update 10/22/13. I had to d/c using this. It was burning my face and creating lines in my face I had never seen before. Still looking for the perfect facial cleanser/make-up remover. I will probably go back to milky cleanser, less harsh on the face.

I don't know why many reviewers gave this one many bad reviews. My experience is otherwise. I love this over Cetaphil and Purpose as this breaks down my foundation and mascara. I can compare this to Avene Cleanance but very budget friendly. Other people may just be annoyed to the fragrance and as well as how tough this is to dirt and grime that they altogether thought that this is harsh. But for me, Im sold to this. I did not experience any rashes nor redness after using this for a week. It also does not dry my skin nor had I felt any tightness after each wash. Perhaps the cleansing method is the key. After using this every morning and evening, I gently rub ice cubes over my entire face which I learned from Sageskincare.com that rubbing ice cube actually tightens pores and tames any irritation and inflammation. I do this to lessen the pain and redness causeed by the cystic pimples I have (as Im still in the purging stage of Retin A). For me the method is very effective and as well as this cleanser. I already trashed the other cleansers in my bathroom by the way and will stick to this.
