Most Helpful Positive Review Must Try
This is by far the best cleanser I've ever used. I have sensitive mature and problem skin which has sent me on a journey of searching for proper skin care. My initial task was to find something wouldn't make my face itchy, which I did found a few good products, such as Purity from Philosophy and Honey and oats cleanser from Michael Todds...They turned my world for the better for sure. But when I used this Confidence in a cleanser, I enter a totally different realm...my face has turned so smooth, no dry patch any more or greasy in the morning...Foundation goes on sooooooo much better when you have good skin... what a difference! I recommend it 110%.
Most Helpful Critical Review It "transformed" my skin...but not in a good way
I purchased this cleanser after my favorite Murad face wash was discontinued. I had high hopes for this product because - for the most part - it has overwhelmingly positive reviews. I also bought this one because I wanted a non-foaming cleanser that wouldn't dry out my skin but would still take off makeup. Unfortunately, this just didn't work for my sensitive skin.
Pros: 1.) It has a clean lemon scent that doesn't linger after it's washed off. I'm normally pretty sensitive to smells (some scents give me headaches), and this fragrance didn't bother me.
2.) The cleanser removed makeup pretty well.
Cons: 1.) It's irritating to my skin. After using this product every day for a week, my skin is not in good shape; I have small bumps on my forehead and cheeks, I have more breakouts, and my skin is a little red and blotchy. It's not unusual for me to have reactions to cosmetics as I do have sensitive skin, but the packaging does say it's appropriate for "all skin types" - even sensitive.
2.) It burns my eyes (which is a hindrance when taking off eye makeup).
3.) It doesn't hydrate my skin. I have normal/combination skin and, while this cleanser doesn't leave my skin feeling tight, it doesn't add any hydration.
4.) A little bit does NOT go a long way (in my experience). When reviews were saying that a little bit of cleanser goes a long way, I figured a pea-sized amount would be enough to clean my face and neck. Nope. I needed about a quarter-sized amount to adequately clean my face and remove my makeup.
5.) It's not truly "non-foaming." It does have a serum-like texture at first, but it bubbles up a little as you massage the product on your face.
Ultimately, for the price point, I don't think this cleanser is worth it. If you have sensitive skin like me, this product may not work for you.

Happy shopper from Grafton, VA
I used the cleanser daily, it said to use it morning and night. But sometimes I only used it once a day. Very gentle on my sensitive skin, made my skin soft, smooth and felt nourished.
Best Cleanser in years
Ms Beth from AZ
I suffer from sensitive skin so I'm always hesitant to try new products on my face. I received two small trial size of the cleanser and fell in love with this product. My face has never felt so soft and smooth. I'm 51 and on hormone replacement to further complicate my skin issues. I just received my large tube and am recommending to friends and family and will buy for gifts this year for those that love their skin.

my face has never been clearer!
Linds from Cape Cod
I started using this product after an ulta worker recommended it to me. I broke out very bad for maybe a week after first starting but that was because my skin was being purged. It drew out alllll my impurities which is why I broke out and then after that I haven't had a break out in months. This product stopped me from getting breakouts. It's anti aging and has so many good ingredients such as hyaluronic acid which is one of my staples. It also smells fresh but it is very subtle.
Cin from Texas
I have tried many cleansers and this one by far has exceeded my expectations. I love how it just washes makeup off so easily. I use to have to use makeup remover before using my face cleanser in order to get all makeup removed. I have definitely noticed the difference in my skin since using it. I use the eye cream, day and night cream and I love them all!
Great face wash!
Pibette from Tampa, FL
This is a really great face wash! It has serum right in it to leave skin line-free, clean and hydrated! I use it in my neck and the backs of my hands for a smooth, supple appearance. My foundation goes on smoother and stays put all day. This is great on oily skín! It's my holy grail of face washes! I just love it! By the way, all IT products are reasonably priced!
SAVE YOURSELF DONT BUY
Crystallee522 from Cleveland
This ruined my skin so many big horrible breakouts I got this as a sample and used it 2 days before a vacation and my skin was horribly ruined for my whole trip do not buy!
I enjoy the lightness & easy removal of this cleanser.

Love the deal of my skin afterwards

I'll take this over any Clinique face cleansing product. Love it!
Used this for years
Spaceyterror from Seattle
I've been using this wash with the after cream for years. When I first started it my skin got much clearer than it had been. But now... I don't know if formula changed or my skin is used to it but I always have some kind of slight skin imperfections. Also it's never fully taken off makeup for me so I usually wash twice on days I wear makeup.
I liked it at first
StephanieR from Pittsburgh Pa
At first it was so creamy and loved how my face felt after. Then my cheeks started to get extremely dry and rough. I am glad I did not go out and get more. Not for me
Best cleanser ever!

Will be buying again
Brenda B from Tulsa Ok
I used this cleanser to replace the harsh body wash I was using to take off my make up when I saw that it said "melts off your makeup" without having to use harsh force and it did, I worked great! I have very sensitive skin which is why I only used sensitive body wash for my face but trying this I will be purchasing continuously. I also follow it up with iT rejuvenating cream and makes my skin feel so soft, clean , and gives me a glow!
Sal from PNW
After about a week of using this, the blackheads on my nose and chin have cleared up, my pores look great! It's a little drying, but I always follow with toner and some kind of moisturizer (cetaphil and/or confidence in a cream). It's a nice almost gelly consistency that foams just enough!
I get hormonal acne so I can't say it's stopped the frequent pimple from showing up around my mouth.
My skin looked horrible while using this
Carmen from Bossier City, La
I really was excited to try this cleanser but when I got it I realized that it made the complexion of my skin look horrible. I have combination and sensitive skin and after using this cleanser, I started to have breakouts in areas I have never experienced before. I also felt that my pores looked incredibly huge after using this.
Dee from Indiana
It's great for my sensitive skin, no redness or irritation!
I will always be using it products
Janet from Bremerton Washington
it products are the best I've ever used for my sensitive skin.
Broke Me Out :(
Kendall from Colorado
I really wanted to like this face wash based on the comments. I have sensitive combination skin and thought this would be work well to not dry out my skin. I like the consistency and how it made my skin feel afterwards, it didn't leave it feeling dry. However, after a couple days of using it I started getting small breakouts all over my face where I normally don't get any. I didn't switch any other of my products so I know it was this.
I will repurchase
Richelle from Seattle
I use this as my second step, double cleanse. My face feels amazing after.
