This is holy grail for me. It took me years and years to find "my" cleanser and this is it. I have dry and sensitive skin that can get a bit manic. Lush's infamous Ultrabland made my face break out in angry red welts. This cleanser is gentle and soothing and safe. So safe. There is fragrance, but it is a mild apricot scent and goes away with rinsing. My face always looks fresh and healthy after cleansing. Not squeaky shiny, but this wonderful glow. And my skin is never taught or dry afterwards. Nor is it filmy. Just nice and soft. This is a great cleanser for the dry and sensitive! And not too $$. Easy to get at Whole Foods when you're picking up your manuka honey and asparagus water ;)

I have combination, somewhat sensitive skin that can break out in reaction to certain ingredients. This cleanser has the right pH level (5.5) to prevent it from stripping your skin, though it does leave my face feeling a little too squeaky clean afterwards (maybe it's my water). But it's not drying, despite that feeling, and prepares skin for treatments, etc. afterwards quite well. It also hasn't led to any breakouts or other problems for me.The texture is interesting--it's like a lightweight lotion but doesn't feel creamy and doesn't foam up at all, so it's more like a cleansing milk. It has a fairly strong, sweet apricot fragrance which is OK, though I'd prefer something else or no fragrance. The ingredients list is good, as is the price. I may try the Clarifying face wash for the summer months, but I will probably repurchase the Creamy Cleanser when the dry season rolls around again.

I freaking love this cleanser. It has a cream/lotion-y texture but because it has emulsifying agents in it, it's water soluble and rinses cleanly of the skin. I recommend using this cleanser on dry skin, emulsifying it with water, and then rinsing. I have very dehydrated-oily and closed comedone prone skin and this worked like a dream at cleansing thoroughly, all while not stripping and drying out my skin. It's pretty affordable. The only cons I have is that the product dries up at the opening so a bit of the product becomes wasted over time and that the cleanser doesn't really last that long. I used half to one pump at night as my second cleanse and I believe it only lasted me 2-3 months.

Pretty much my HG cleanser now, as it's the only one i can/will use. It has a PH of 5.5, which means it's less damaging and irritating than most of the popular cleansers on the market. And even some cleansers that have a low PH also have sulfates in them, which is a strong irritant detergent. This one does not. For a cleanser comprised mostly of fruit oils, it does a decent job of getting my face clean (which includes European sunscreen, foundation, blush/contour etc), and the reason i say "decent" is because it's not that great at taking off eye makeup, and i don't even wear waterproof mascara or much eye makeup at all, so that's pretty much the only aspect of this cleanser i'm not completely happy with.I'd been using a plain Dove bar to wash my face for years (my dermatologist recommended that), and because i currently use anti-aging actives (retin-a and vitamin C serum), even Dove stings and hurts my face now. This cleanser does not, so it's very gentle, which i love. It's pretty cheap and it also smells so nice, reminds me of strawberry-banana yogurt, or fruit salad.

I bought this after looking on MUA for a well rated, affordable cleanser. It was fine at first, just an average decent cleanser. Then my face started to break out - very unusual for me. I wasn't sure of the cause initially as I had just started a new moisturizer also. Note to self - NEVER start more than one product at the same time because it makes it impossible to judge them. Anyhow I continued the moisturizer and stopped the cleanser since I had a couple of tubes of others - more tried and true. The breakout went away. I decided to use it up by using it on my neck and within a week had a large zit right in the middle. I have never, never broken out on my neck before. I stopped using it immediately and the zit went away over the next 3 days. That was enough for me. I haven't read this complaint by anyone else and otherwise it seems to be a perfectly decent cleanser. It does have a fragrance which I don't especially like - both the smell and the fact that there is one. It comes in a nice, easy to use pump bottle and, as I said, the price was OK. Obviously I won't purchase again. I previously used their clear, sudsing cleanser and it was fine.

I really don't understand what other reviewers are talking about...it feels like washing my face with body lotion, no foaming, no lather...nothing. Made my eye makeup smear all over my face and I was all black and greasy. Does not remove makeup at all and if used in the morning (bare skin) left it greasy, oily and yucky. Returned it.

My skin is oily but it is also dehydrated. Normally, I would stay away from creamy cleansers. However, the dehydrated aspect of my skin is just as real as the oily aspect. Some cleansers I've tried in the recent past but have been failures: Cerave Foaming, Olay Sensitive foaming, Cerave Hydrating, Boots Sensitive foaming, LRP Physiological Gel, LRP Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cream.None of these worked, mostly because they were too drying. The few that weren't drying had other unfortunate effects: Cerave Hydrating and LRP Toleriane broke me out, and LRP Physiological made my skin peel. After so many unsuccessful trials, I was so frustrated I came back to this (I had tried it before and thought it was the cause of a bad breakout). I'm happy to say that this has been my daily a.m. and p.m. cleanser for over two months and I am very pleased with it. I love that it thoroughly cleanses, cutting through all the oily morning residue, but never strips my skin or leaves it dehydrated/dry. While this does leave some moisture on the face, it is not present in an uncomfortable post-wash film, only making my skin soft and supple.(One thing I do want to note is that I do not use this for makeup removal. I prefer to use my Fancl cleansing oil or Pond's. Personally, I do not feel this cleanser is very effective at removing makeup except perhaps very light makeup.)The consistency of this product reminds me a lot of runny lotion, and the scent... I have no idea what I think the scent is like, but I don't really like it. After so many uses, though, I can't say I really notice it anymore.The label says to use the product on dry skin and then rinse it off, similar to how you might use an oil cleanser. (Okay, technically this is an oil cleanser!)Price point isn't too bad. I get it for around $10 at Whole Foods.ETA: As winter rolled around, my skin started having issues with dryness and dehydration. This cleanser didn't seem to be helping -- my skin would feel parched after use. I tried using other products instead but my skin didn't like anything else except micellar water, which I do not like for actual cleansing. I came back to this and what seems to help is using my muslin cloth less. I used to always use one (gently) for physical exfoliation, and while my skin can handle it, it seems to wipe away some of the cleanser's moisturizing residue. Skipping the cloth appears to leave most of the residue on my skin, which is helping with my hydration issues. (Again, the residue is not oily, filmy, or otherwise uncomfortable. It truly just makes my skin soft and moisturized.)

This is a rare holy grail product for me. I've been using it every night for at least 5 years. I have maturing skin, leans dry, likes a *lot* of exfoliation (chemical & manual). This cleanser washes off my Euro sunscreens, heavy professional make-up from set, day to day make-up. I don't use waterproof mascara, so that's one thing I can't comment on, but I do use winged black eyeliner & black mascara daily & this takes it off no problem. It rinses clean & doesn't leave any greasy residue.

This is a pretty boring cleanser, I don't think I'll be repurchasing. It does mildly dry my skin out which surprised me because it is marketed for dry and sensitive skin and has a very creamy consistency. I don't mind the smell. I bought it because it was all natural and cheap, around 10 dollars.

I am on my 3rd (or is it 4th?) bottle of this, so it's about time I post a review! First off I want to say that I have never repurchased a cleanser before this one. That alone says a lot!I wear water resistant all physical sunscreen and all the basic, foaming cleansers I've tried just don't remove it. This however works like a charm. I use about a nickel to quarter sized amount on dry skin, massage until no longer 'slippery' and rinse off. Voila! No more sunscreen. Another major plus, this is not drying. Lots of cleansers these days leave me with tight, if not downright peeling skin... not this one. BTW, before this I tried using oils to remove sunscreen (Origins Clean Energy Cleansing Oil: drying and full of essential oils, namely lavender; Apricot Kernel Oil: drying, EVOO and Coconut: hard to wash off afterwards) and found it didn't work so well, plus I disliked having to cleanse in two steps. This does what I need in one step. I've thought about trying Clinique's Take the Day Off balm, just because I like to try new things, but considering it's twice as expensive as this, why bother?The one way this product could be improved is by making it fragrance-free, but thankfully the fragrance (creamy and fruity) is light and doesn't bother me.
