Most Helpful Positive Review Love this for my dark spots and oily skin!
I love this product! I had a breakout of acne on my chin area, and I have no willpower so I popped them all. Left my medium-tan skin with dark spots all on my chin. I started cleansing with this and then used hyaluronic acid afterwards. Both of them together completely got rid of my recent dark spots. The combination has lightly faded old ones I've had too!
It does have a scent, but I personally like it! It's a fruity smell, and faded away after a couple minutes. The gel formula works well with oily skin. I didn't break out or anything when using this product. I don't have sensitive skin or anything, so I can't speak on that. I love that this brand is cruelty free as well. Overall, it worked great for me, I think it's worth the price. I purchased mine in early September, use it only at night. Really only a pea-sized amount is enough. I still have a lot left and its been two months, definitely worth the price.
Most Helpful Critical Review Changed formula
I loved this when I first used it, but I'm disappointed that they changed the formula. The old formula did not contain the ingredients "alcohol" or "fragrance" which are things I stay away from (unless the packaging says their fragrance is pthalate free, which this does not). I remember thinking this had such a lovely natural scent, so why change and add fragrance? Also, the concentration of their fruit extracts used to be higher in the old formula. I remember thinking how great it was that these ingredients were some of the main ingredients, but now they are closer to the bottom, which is disappointing. This used to be my holy grail cleanser, but now I have to find something else. Acure, if you're reading this, please switch back to the old formula and also please do not change the formula of the day cream.

I love it but it leaves some parts of my face feels bumpy
This actually works!
MJ from IL
I've been using this wash in the morning and before bed and have noticed that my break outs have decreased. When I do get a spot, it seems to clear up faster. My scars have also gotten better.
My go-to cleanser for years
Lola Bunny from Hattiesburg, MS
Acure is an amazing brand with lots of wonderful products. This particular cleanser has been my go-to for years! I have very sensitive skin, and I was so happy to learn that not only this cleanser, but all of the Acure products I have tried so far are gentle and do not irritate my skin. For the price, you can't beat it. If you use all of the Brightening products together, you will be sure to get compliments about your glowing skin!
RoadRunner from Earth
This used to be my favorite cleanser! It had a wonderful scent and made my face feel tight and squeaky clean after using it. The formula has changed and it now smells like plastic and doesn't have the squeaky clean feeling. I will be moving on after I finish this tube. Disappointing.
my favorite cleanser
Gwen from Indianapolis
this is my favorite cleanser. my skin is oily and acne prone, but also very sensitive. this product is very gentle. it cleanses enough but not too much. on the rare occasion I wear makeup it's good at taking that off too, I just use a little extra
Really fresh feeling
suesfc from Kansas
Tried this for the first time. Love the ingredients and scent. Nice light, fresh, clean feeling.
Good cleanser but..
Favz from Puerto Rico
I have been using this cleanser for a while and although I enjoy how it smells and how light the texture feels, my face does feel dry at times. I have extra dry skin so I don't love a cleanser that has any kind of tightness to the skin. It does leave my face extra clean so I will finish the bottle for what it is but I wouldn't purchase again.
Makes my face sting
Sarah from Grand Rapids
So I bought this about a week ago and it was great for the first few days until recently it started burning my face? I've noticed it also can make my skin dry, but it is refreshing and it does smell nice.
THE BEST FREAKIN CLEANSER!!!!!!

Keeps your skin nice and smooth.
Only face wash that worked for me!!!
Xo94xo from Buffalo, NY
I have used almost everything and I've been on the hunt for a good face wash thats gentle and not drying. I change up my cleansers every so often because I don't seem to find a good one until now!!! I have been using the gentle cerave cleanser which still dried my face but didnt feel clean. So i switched to this and omg I love it!!!! I figured what do I have to lose w this cheap one. But i love how its gentle and doesn't burn my eyes if it did get near there and also makes my face look soo fresh and bright every time I use this regardless of what hour of the day. And it makes my face feel and look clean I'm not sure if it did anything to fade my acne scars because I have been using the ordinary products so not sure if this added any benefits but I do see a significant difference in my scars fading and I am soo happy maybe this was the additional I needed for my skincare regimen. I love love love this. And even my sister started using this instead of the cerave one and even she said the same thing about her face looking brighter and glowy. I need to stock up since everyone in my household started using this and been loving it!!!

Love it. Love the scent.
Gets off more mascara than my makeup wipes!
Bella from Los Angeles
Pretty impressed with the effectiveness of this gentle and vegan cleanser. I tried Simple makeup wipes because they are cruelty free and vegan but they wouldn't remove all my makeup- I would always have to double cleanse. I washed with this cleanser first and then used a makeup wipe and barely anything came off so no more double cleanse for me! I'm really surprised how effective it is and it didn't irritate my dry, sensitive skin. Deducted one star because you really don't need to use that much but the packaging makes it hard to control the amount that comes out. Squeeze slowly and gently!
Michaela from Undisclosed
This is the best cleansing gel I've ever used. I have acne-prone skin and it always leaves me feeling clean and refreshed!
Great Daily Cleanser
Liza from Undisclosed
This cleanser leaves my face feeling fresh and not dried out. I use this daily in the shower and love that my face feels really clean without feeling stripped. The price and ingredients are also amazing!
Anna from Undisclosed
I absolutely love this product. I use it as my daily face wash. It smells really nice and leaves my skin feeling clean. A little goes a long way so one bottle lasts a while!
Kaitlin from Florida
I use this cleanser at night (I use acure seriously soothing cleansing cream in the morning) and I've noticed my skin is a lot clearer. I have combination skin that tends to be pretty sensitive at times and I often have blackheads on my chin but that has cleared up considerably since I started using this cleanser. It can be a bit drying and it has a very light scent that I find to be pleasant but I wouldn't recommend this for anyone who is sensitive to scents or has dry skin. Otherwise, this is a good cleanser and I definitely plan on purchasing it again.
Gentle but effective
Tesee from San Diego
I love this gel cleanser for my skin. I have dry skin and live in a dry climate and this doesn't strip what little moisture I have; it's very gentle for me. It foams nicely, rinses easily and smells awesome. I don't notice any "brightening" effects but my skin isn't particularly dull to begin with. I've been through quite a few different cleansers in the past 6 months and this one is a keeper; I'll definitely re-buy.
Julia from Undisclosed
I love this product. It makes my skin feel clean, but not dried out.
Marissa from Biloxi, MS
it's not moisturizing and it's also a tiny bit drying but it's a good cleanser gets through my makeup really well I have combo skin acne prone I can't say it's improved or been determental to my skin but it's definitely not for me I'm about half way through my bottle and I won't be repurchasing but I will use it until I run out
Amazing m, just as I expected
Whitney from Florida
I received the Brightening Night Cream as a gift at a Christmas party several months ago. I was skeptical at first because I had never heard of Acure before, but after doing some research, I finally decided to try it a few days later. I completely fell in love with that moisturizer because it made my skin look so beautiful, as well as feel so silky. I used it for not day and night since it is the only moisturizer I own that is thick enough to last and not make me greasy by the end of the day.
After my success with that product, I really wanted to try some more of the line, but I wasn't able to get to an Ulta. I ended up purchasing a cleaner and toner from another brand, and I could not have been more upset. My oily-combination skin completely dried out to the point that it was scabbing after just a few days of use. It was so bad that my skin become ridiculously dull with absolutely no brightness left, even with using my Night Cream. I was finally determined to get to an Ulta to buy the Cleansing Gel. After one use, the dryness was almost completely gone and the brightness was back. It really helped with my acne as well.
I am so glad I was finally able to purchase this cleanser, and I will continue to purchase from this brand in the future.
Wasn't for me
Pammygmua from San Diego, CA
I have combination dry skin and I was looking forward to using this as it had incredible reviews but man did it strip my skin. I had to return it. None of my moisturizers were bringing back the hydration either. I've finally nursed my skin back to full health after three weeks of not using this anymore. I would say this would be more suitable for combination oily, oily and normal skin types. The texture was quite nice and it did smell fresh and clean.
I'm loving this face wash, and my skin!
Sharon the empty nester from Yuma, AZ
I love that the wash is a clear gel. It only takes a small dab to wash your face and neck. I love the way it makes my skin look and feel.
