    Comments about Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash:

    I splurged and bought this face wash for my birthday. It's good for every day use and leaves my skin feeling refreshed. I use it with my Clarisonic Mia. I don't feel like it's deep cleaning my pores but I'm not sure if it's supposed to.

          I can't really say the effectiveness of this wash as I couldn't get past the strong fragrance. I used it once and the smell was too overwhelming. I'm not usually sensitive to fragrance either. Will be returning.

          Comments about Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash:

          The consistency of this product reminds me of the Asian beauty foaming washes, but this one doesn't foam as much. A little goes a long way and lathers into this creamy, silky texture with a very subtle scent. Rinses quickly and cleanly without leaving my skin overly tight. I follow this up with Thayers rose witch hazel, whatever serum I'm in the mood for, and top it off with the Skyn cooling antidote lotion (day) or a heavier cream at night. My skin definitely looks better since using this product. The Christmas "ornament" size is perfect trial so, if you don't want to spend the $75 for the two products.

          Formula Change?

          By Hannah

          from Columbus, OH

          Comments about Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash:

          I got a sample of this cleanser in my Ipsy bag and LOVED it! I've been waiting for it to restock for some time and finally managed to snatch it. However, my full size is VERY watery, like "open the lid upside down and it runs out" watery, which was not at all my experience with the sample. I checked the formula on the box of the FS vs the deluxe sample and it does look like it's changed. I hope this isn't the case! Will take mine in and try to exchange it.

                I use this every night, since May/June of this year. I ordered more on Black Friday and I'm hoping I just purchased a defective product and they didn't change the formula. This new bottle was really runny and didn't lather the same or smell the same, and not long after my first wash my face became really sensitive and was almost burning. I've filed a complaint with Ulta hoping they will make it right! In the same order I also purchased the smaller size that came with a moisturizer so I could let my sister try it (that's how much I love this stuff) and it had the wash that I love in it that I used before so that's what I'm using at the moment. But I will be returning the other large bottle for a new one!

                    I've been using this product for 3 months. I love it. I just moved from a humid area to a dry desert area and my skin was becoming a problem. After using this product in the morning, moisturizing after and then moisturizing before bed my skin is the clearest and softest its ever been. I hate devoting a lot of time to a beauty regime so this was perfect and effective for me.

                        Hello Chris,
                        Thanks so much for your question. Glacial Face Wash is ideal for anyone with redness or irritation. Its cushiony soft and has a calming effect that works immediately and over time to help soothe irritated skin. It is safe to use, and long term will help protect your skin.
                        Hope this answer helps.

                    • Q:

                      Can you use this product to take off your makeup? I currently have one from Glam Glow, and I wet my face at night when I'm taking off my makeup, and then apply it. Takes all my makeup right off and cleans my skin. Looking for something similar that I can use in mornings when I wake up and evenings (to also take off all my makeup).

                        Hi Sasha,
                        Thanks so much for your question. Although this is not a full face of makeup cleanser, it does break down dirt, makeup and impurities. If you wear heavier makeup a better option would be our Glacial Cleansing Cloths for Eyes that removes all makeup, even waterproof.
                        Hope this answer helps.
