If you're skeptical about purchasing this, PLEASE take what I'm saying into consideration.
I'm the definition of a budget buyer. Like, I've never owned a face wash other than Noxema and a few other Neutrogena, because my mom bought them for me when I was in high school and I just never switched. I have very clear skin, and I didn't think there really were any fixes for oily skin. I tried a few sample packs of face washes such as Olay, Aveeno, etc., but nothing worked. So for years I've just been watching my makeup basically melt off my face because my skin gets oily.
BUT THIS WORKS WONDERS. I went to ulta recently because I wanted to see if my makeup and skincare routine was the best plan for my skin, and the assistant walked me through many products. I was completely overwhelmed and then she suggested trying this product out. She said it's a great product and she swears by it, as she also has oily skin.
I've only been using this for a few days but my skin has completely changed. My makeup stayed on my face during: a 7am-5pm work shift, a 60 min tempo run, a 45 min lifting session. I will never buy another face wash.
Most Helpful Critical Review Wanted to like it...
I'm very skeptical when it comes to skin care items, especially cleansers, that claim they're for all skin types... I have dry skin and my husband has more combination-oily skin.
We both tired out this cleanser and stopped using it for same and different reasons... His reason was, even though he liked how it made his face feel nice and smooth, he noticed he started getting a lot of blackheads. Something he doesn't normally deal with except on his nose.
The reasons I stopped using it, is because not only did I also start getting blackheads, but it was starting to make my skin feel too dry. Initially, yes, I loved how smooth is made my skin feel, but the more I used it, the more I felt like either it's not cleaning my face well enough or it's stripping my skin. Either way, that can cause blackheads and break-outs... black heads are just dead skin and sebum. If this cleanser isn't cleaning my face like it should and leaving a film, then that could cause blackheads and breakouts. And if it's stripping my skin, then that would cause my skin to become more dry, imbalanced, and create more oil, which again, would equal to blackhead and breakouts.
So, we both stopped using it, and I have decided to go with a cleanser that is specifically for dry skin.

This is one of the face cleansers recommended by curology and it is amazing. Cleared my skin up for the most part without drying it out. Would definitely recommend esp if you have acne.
Cleared my skin in 2 days
Billy from Orlando
I have really been struggling with acne. I'm a 26 year old male. This cleanser is that typical myristic acid type cleanser that's frothy when you wash with it and leaves your skin kind of squeaky clean feeling when you rinse - but not nearly as stripping. I don't know what added ingredients they put in to balance the skin the way it does but WOW I'm shocked and I will be buying this again. I always hated on this product too and called it basic - I was wrong!

first cleanser to ever make my skin feel clean without changing the ph
Barbara from Mississippi
Really wanted to like this cleanser since it is effective but it has an off-putting smell and the foaming agent in it really irritates my eyes, even if I keep the suds away from them. Leaves skin refreshed and soft but too irritating for me to repurchase.
Perfect balancing cleanser

Really helps balance the ph of my skin!
I would buy this Product again

The best for my face
Best face wash
Yas from Washington, DC
I've been using this face wash for 2 years and haven't found anything like it. It doesn't have a scent, and it cleans my face of all oil and make up in one wash. A little goes a long way which is great because it last longer in my bathroom.
Leah from Pa
I have dry acne prone skin and typically will precleanse with an oil to break down my makeup before washing. HOWEVER with this I didn't need to! This cleanser took off everything including my mascara in one go! I was very pleasantly surprised at how well it worked and how soft my skin felt after.
Holy Grail Face Wash
butterbeercheers from Los Angeles, CA
I have sensitive, combination skin. I'm very prone to redness and irritation and this face wash works wonderfully for my skin. It lathers well and is gentle, with no smell. I always snag a bottle during skin care sales because it will definitely get used!
beccdubb from Sacramento, CA
This came in a FAB sample box, and I didn't think this was all that special at first. I used it only sometimes in the shower, and quickly realized how great it is! It's so gentle, hydrating, and fragrance-free! Bought the full size after I ran out of the sample.
Kala from North Carolina
I have sensitive skin & this product is my go to! This is my second purchase! Love how good it lathers and how it has a soft clean smell.
AlphaCharlie from Concord, CA
I tried this because it was on sale. I have now been using it for a year and I love it. It's one of the few cleansers that will remove all makeup. ALL makeup! It leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth. Great first step in my evening routine.
Genuinely surprised, sebaceous filaments are gone
Cat from Los Angeles, CA
Genuinely surprised by this really boring looking soap. I massage the cleanser on my skin the way I would use a makeup removal balm, and this soap removed my sebaceous filaments. I don't think I ever used any other cleanser that is as effective at removing white heads.
Kris from Los Angeles

Best cleaner I have used!
Chrysa from Charleston, WV
I have very dry and sensitive skin and this is the best cleanser I have tried! Works wonders!
Jen from Baltimore, MD
I first got this in a sample and took it on a business trip as it was easier to transport than a different brand full size cleanser. One use and I was hooked. It is gentle, doesn't dry my face and makes it feel super clean. My skin is normal to dry for reference. I've been using it now for well over a year and my skin looks and feels great.
My favorite cleanser
Meg from Louisiana
This cleanser is my favorite. It's really gentle, yet feels cleans the skin. It gets off any extra mascara that is under my eyes after my oil cleanse. I love the brand because they are fragrance free as it breaks me out. This cleanser also help with eczema on my face.
Leigh from Okemos, Michigan
I love this product, I've used many cleansers, expensive and inexpensive alike. FAB. Cleanses my skin without irritation, you can't beat the price 😀
Didn't Know I Needed It
Jess from Tempe, Az
I walked into Ulta to browse while my boyfriend was shoe shopping next door. I was looking at the Bare Minerals foundations and was approached by an Ulta rep and suddenly found myself being talked into changing my skin care routine. This cleanser was one of her recommendations, along with the Philosophy moisturizer. I ended up getting a sample size of this cleanser (and the moisturizer) and have been using it for just a few days but this combo has been working pretty well for my oily t-zone. I give it 4 stars because I haven't used it very long and it hasn't done "wonders" for me, but I will say that I've noticed that it's a step up from my old routine. I pulled up the Ulta app to buy this full-size, as well as the Philosophy clay mask that the Ulta rep also recommended (the reviews were good on that one too). There is a very faint smell but I can't really categorize it as either good or bad.... it doesn't bother me.
Awesome face wash
