I didn't like this product because of the strong, cheap-perfumey smell and the way it left my face dry and tight. The bottle is great, a pump-style, and the color is pretty, bright pink, but the actual product is not good for my combination skin. Maybe this is how it minimizes pores, drying your skin so it is left puckered and tight, but I think I will look elsewhere. Also, it says that it …Read more

I like this cleanser,it does not hurt the eyes and can easily remove the makeup. If you lather it in your hands first i find it to work better, it does minimize the pores, but it not going to help with acne issues. Im not really a fan of the smell.

Packaging is cute enough, it comes with a pump and squirt bottle, and the price makes it well worth it, but I was utterly disappointed with this product, even though i think L'oreal makes solid products.

Firstly, due to my sensitive skin, I think an ingredient in the cleanser dried out my skin, and left my skin flaky, and ever so slightly rashy.

It did take my make-up …

I hated this cleanser. It has a strong smell that I didn't care for and it made my already dry skin even drier (it started flaking on my cheeks and chin). The only reason I gave this a 2 instead of a 1 is because it did clean very well and it didn't break me out any. Maybe it would work better for someone with oily skin.

I have the lamest skin: dry and flaky but also oily and congested, so it's tough to find skincare products that can address both these issues without exacerbating either one. This cleanser can do it though!

It lathers up really well, removes all traces of makeup, and leaves my face feeling super clean and fresh without that awful tight and dry feeling most gel cleansers leave …

I have oily blemish prone skin, this cleanser washes my face squeaky clean with no residue, brightens my skin after rinsing and feels smooth and soft afterwards. Washes away make-up, oil & dirt. My skin just love it.

I signed up to makeup alley just to comment on this cleanser. I am not lying when I say I had oily skin and cystic acne breakouts at times. After using this for about 2 to 3 weeks now, my breakouts are just fading away and my skin's complexion is improving so much!!

I recommend buying this product before trying any kind of antibiotics or medical creams for your face. Just try …

I don't even try other cleansers now, since I always come back to Genesis! This stuff easily takes off my makeup, rinses clean, does not dry me out, and generally does what it is supposed to do. It definitely tightens the skin some (to reduce pores?), but I do not think it's drying. I have skin prone to breakouts, and this helps me, for sure. I've used all types of Neutrogena …Read more

I'm not a big fan of this product for the following reasons:
-drying on the skin
-strong perfume smell
-irritating
-takes two washes to remove eye makeup

After my wash at night to remove my makeup this product seems to dry out my skin especially around my nose area. I can't quite say that this feeling is due to the "pore minimizing" properties it …

I bought this after I used the day and night creams for skin genesis. I like the smell but noticed the oil did not get any better. My skin did not break out any more but did not improve either. I stopped using it and went back to Philosophy Purity Made Simple for the past week. I have noticed that the oil is alot better with Purity. I have also stopped using the day serum and started using …Read more
