I think there are probably better hydrating cleansing milk - type cleansers out there, but this is my first foray into this style of facial cleanser and I'll never use a foaming one again, so to date it's the best I've tried. Oil cleansers dry me out, foaming ones irritate and dry as well.

I have oily skin, but completely removing all oils from my face makes me oilier because it ups the production. I rub this on a dry face and remove with a warm wash cloth. If you try to just rinse this off you'll end up with a gross smeared makeup mess. You have to remove manually, but if you do it's a nice moisturizing/exfoliating makeup removal experience.

Not the most convenient, but when I do this my face looks GOOD!

Horrifying product. Made me look like my face had been flash-burned. Threw it out.

This is my favorite facial cleanser. The smell is wonderful and refreshing. It is very gentle and leaves my face soft and smooth with just the right touch of hydration. I have seen a great improvement in my skin since using this each morning before applying my moisturizer. I will continue to repurchase.

So basically I have horrible dry skin ever since I moved to the desert & have been on the hunt for a lovely cleanser and let me tell you this beats all other high end and drugstore cleanser by far. If you have dry skin, run to the store and grab this product! It smells like oranges which makes me want to drink it a little! A must have.

I really love this product.
It is especially nice when used during the colder seasons.

It does not get rid of make up.
It does clog the pores on my nose. So I try to avoid applying it on my nose.
(But to be fair, the pores on my nose are horrendous and were horrendous before using this product.)

It's a really nice alternative to cleansers that can be stripping. It also has a lovely scent.

I think Avalon Organic's Vitamin C series is exceptional.

i love this cleanser! it's very gentle on my skin and doesn't strip it, it leaves it feeling soft and supple. my worry with cleansers on my dry skin is that they'll dry it out even further, and luckily, this cleanser doesn't do that! the only downside of it is that it *does not remove makeup* and you will need to use a makeup remover beforehand to be sure your face is completely clean.

Not sold on this one at all. Firstly it stings my skin, not to the point of being unbearable or anything, but it's particularly noticeable if, for example I have a cold and the skin around my nose is a bit sore. The pump dispenser is absolutely useless. Wouldn't repurchase.

I had to use Mario Badescu products or my skin gets out of control. It's the only skincare I've been able to find that doesn't clog my skin more than it is and doesn't cause acne or irritation. That being said, I was trying to find a cheaper alternative. I can't keep splurging on $20+/product. So I thought I'd go ahead and try this out since it was recommended to me. I had made a post in a blog about my acne prone skin. I've used AHA before and have dealt with "stinging" so this wasn't much new. I was aware that'd happen. To those who don't like the stinging feeling on their face then be warned not to buy this! As for cleansing it seemed to do jack. My acne seemed to get worse as I was using this. It did nothing to make the acne pop up less, help my skin glow or soften. So my skin just looked awful after using this.

I think the only positive thing I can say about this is that I kind of liked how it didn't suds up and it smelled like oranges. Other than that this is a waste of money... I guess unless you have perfect skin already.

I love this, it is my staple cleanser. It took a few days if getting use to not having a fiam cleanser but the way this leaves my skin feeling supple and not tight keeps me coming back to it. I do feel a sensation when I massage this in, not a real tingle, does feel slightly numbing or? I love the way it feels even though I can't find the right word to describe the sensation. I love have it feels on my lips, gives them that sexy plump and flushed look for a little bit. I am battling melasma, pregnancy that I got a few years ago during pregnancy 2 out of 3. The third pregnancy and breastfeeding kept it more prone to worsening. Now the discolration on my cheekbones is almost all gone and the discoloration has faded but still working in that. I use this with the Vit C SPF 15, wish it were higher. I apply a higher spf on my forehead ti try to repel furthur damage and to aid in fading. I think it helped my skin a lot and do suggest it to others but warn about the sensations.

I simply LOVE this product. It leaves my skin feeling soft/smooth and that citrusy smell is divine. I use a home remedy raw apple cider vinegar / water combo to clarify after my wash and the combination works well. I use the Vit C Serum also daily under moisturizer and at nite after cleansing milk - with a thin layer of Vit A oil before bed. I'm trying hard to refresh my aged look. :)
