            Love it. First tried in a sample combination with the genius moisturizer. I am lazy when it comes to washing my face after a long and busy day. I like this product because you apply it to dry skin -- and then rinse it off. It is a very pleasant sensory experience.

              I love this cleanser. It melts everything away and when you add water, it turns a milky white and "emulsifies." I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

                I had been looking for a cleanser that did not irritate my eyes and would take off make and be a wash, without having to do two steps! This product is AWESOME! It goes on kinda oily (not really an oil, but I can't think of a better word for it!) and work it around on your face without WATER and then you add the water it becomes a very nice wash, like soap, except that it isn't! My face feels clean, fresh, and best of all my makeup is gonel

                I don't usually spend this much on a second cleanser, but this stuff is AMAZING. It is a great non-foaming cleanser, with anti-aging properties and it LASTS FOREVER. It leave skins clean, but not dry. I've had my last tube for nearly 6 months!
