description

A gel consisting of a non-foaming formula that thoroughly removes impurities without drying the skin. Its papaya and grapefruit extracts contain exfoliating properties that help to remove the build-up which is the cause of blackheads and pimples. The gel lessens skin irritation, making it suitable for sensitive skin. Its oil-free, non-lathering gel makes cleansing fuss-free.

On the search for a good papaya-enzyme cleanser (more natural than 'Likas Papaya' soap which works well but isn't all that great for the skin's PH) and stumbled upon this. The concentration of...

One of the worst cleansers I have tried. Very strong artificial fragrance. Also, it barely removes makeup and/or sunscreen. Is very good at stinging your eyes though. Does this also have dye in it?...

as others have noted, this smells "like a spa"...but that's a little more fragranced than I like for products near my face. Still, it delivers on its promise to not strip the oil , leaving skin...

I first got a sample of this, and it just smelt so good that I HAD to buy a full-sized one when it went on sale. Then I tried it out and it didn't work for me, for some reason - I somehow felt it...

I've used this for a couple of months, but I haven't noticed any difference with my skin. Feels kinda clean, but I had really high expectations on this one.

I know it shouldn't matter but I hate the way this smells. It's a really thick cleanser too.

Maybe the worst cleanser I've ever used. It doesn't remove makeup. When I use toner afterwards, tons of dirt/makeup is on the pad. On top of that, it feels the skin leaving tight and dry! Without...

This cleanser smells really bad and once I washed my face it stayed on my skin. It also did not make my skin feel clean.

I LOVE THIS STUFF. I use it in the morning (because it doesn't really remove makeup). I barely wet my face and then I rub a small amount on my face for 20 seconds. Then I wait another 30...

Great double duty exfoliant for the skin. Use daily, weekly, or as needed. Non-foaming cleanser. Doesn't over-dry the skin. Don't leave on too long, because of the AHA's in the cleanser. But its...

I really do like this one, it's nice and gentle and smells nice like citrus and fruits. The bottle is large and you only need the size of 10-20 cent piece. So it will last a long time. However, I...
