I ordered a skin care sample kit from the Mario Badescu website, and they sent me the Enzyme Cleansing Gel. While I thought that cleanser worked well, but I really disliked the smell of it (it smelled a bit like rotting fruit, to me) so, I went back on their site, and looked for something else to purchase.
The description of Seaweed Cleansing Soap, mentions both "anti-inflammatory", and "sensitive" skin so, I thought that this would be a great cleanser for my sensitive/dry/combo skin. Without ever trying it, I purchased the largest bottle I could get (16 oz), and the results I've had have been great! I use this as the first step in my skincare routine, and my skin no longer ever feels dry, tight, or uncomfortable! This is a creamy cleanser, that doesn't foam.
I really like how soft, and gentle this cleanser is on my skin. The little bits of seaweed in it, are perfect for daily exfoliating of sensitive skin like mine.
The price of this cleanser might scare away some budget shoppers; but I've had the 16 oz. bottle of cleanser for a little more than 3 months now, and still have at least 60% of it remaining. I find that for the tiny amount I need to use each time, it actually costs me less than any drugstore cleansers I've used, and the quality is so much better! I will most definitely repurchase this.
The few cons: The aforementioned bits of seaweed are black, and can get caught in the hairline if not rinsed really well.
If you dislike, or can't use cleanser that contain fragrance, stay clear of this one. To me, the fragrance of this cleanser is very strong/powdery-like. It's taken me a while to get used to the scent, but now it doesn't bother me quite as much.
Because the cap of this big bottle has such a large hole for dispensing product, they might include, (or at least offer as a separate purchase) a long pump for easy dispensing. However, this is very easily rectified by slowly dispensing the cleanser into a small, plastic, travel sized shampoo bottle, for daily use.
