Most Helpful Positive Review Wow!
As a 41 year old woman it seems like my skin is suffering from multiple personalities: dull, congested, uneven skin tone, acne-prone, sensitive, oily, but somehow dry. It seemed as if I needed several products to address everything, and I reverted back to drug store brands because I had no idea where to start. And it showed.
A sales associate suggested I try this cleanser -- a "gateway product". He wasn't exaggerating when he said I'd notice a difference right away. I've been using it twice daily for six days, leaving it on for a few minutes before it's washed off. This product alone has given me a clearer, brighter, more even, skin tone that I haven't seen in a long time.
I don't have a large budget for beauty products, and I typically wouldn't spend this much on a cleanser; however, it works so well I think it's worth the investment.
Most Helpful Critical Review I really wanted this product to work
I never write reviews but I'm doing this because I feel so strongly about this product. I also usually am a budget shopper but decided to take a chance on this. I have struggled with acne my whole life and am always looking for new products to try. I didn't even intend on buying this but an ULTA sales rep said it was a "miracle" for acne. I tried using it only at night to start for a few days. I noticed that it didn't remove my makeup all of the way, so I incorporated my soft Clarasonic brush. My face became so dry after using this product for a week straight but I kept high hopes. I tried using oils to compensate but it got worse. IT DID NOT CLEAR UP MY ACNE. IT JUST MADE MY SKIN EXTREMELY DRY AND IRRITATED. It also smells very strong! It smells like hair dye. I realized the ingredients say it has alcohol in it! Which could be the reason for the smell and dryness. Please don't waste your money on this if you want to cure or help your acne. Save your money and buy a simple and more gentle cleanser. Acne prone skin needs to be treated with care and harsh products only make it worse. I was finally on a path to clear skin and I highly wish I wouldn't have broken my routine by buying this. I now need to clear my skin back up again and hydrate it. Trust me, this product is not good for acne prone skin.

Love this stuff it is perfect for my darker skin
Finally found a product worth using
CJ Hali from Virginia
I have horrible skin, and thought I had used everything. This doesn't have any abrasive ingredients or a harsh after wash that hurts my skin. It's very gentle, yet within days could feel my face was softer and brighter. I use this once a day (night), and I can tell my skin isn't bothered with this cleanser. It's lasted me months and I highly recommend it.
Buy this product!
Maggie from Michigan
This product has changed my skin. I HIGHLY recommend. I only use once a day (at night) and it has lasted me months. Worth the price.
Csanders from OKC
I really liked this cleanser. I bought it in January when it was 1/2 price. I ran out within 3 Months. I do plan to wait until it's on sale again to purchase.
Company Changed Ingredents
Ataylor45 from Santa Fe
I loved this product last year, but the company changed the ingredients. Contains 3 types of alcohol now. I am not happy but I was able too returned this item for another. I love what it can do and if anyone is ok with the ingredents, then try it for yourself.
My Go To!
Ataylor from Santa Fe
Bought this product almost 6 months ago and I just ran out! Lasted longer than expected and I loved how it felt. I have complex skin so I loved the no soap included aspect but still got the soapy feel. I rub it for 1 minute to make sure I get all the make up off. I highly recommend this although I have read it may not be suitable for all skin types, but it worked for mine.
BEST FACE WASH I HAVE EVER PURCHASED
Kaylee from Arizona
I was dealing with very bad hormonal acne after pregnancy and couldn't find any face wash that would clear my skin. I purchased 2 months ago, I saw results within a week, I use the wash 1-2 times a day. Also a little goes ALONG way. Would recommend this product to anyone with bad acne.
Tams from Tennessee
I got this product during the 21 days of beauty sale and figured I would try it out. Goes on without water first and then foams up and you can feel it removing the makeup. It leaves me skin SOOO soft. It even washes off most of my eye makeup. (Sometimes I need a second dab to get all of my mascara). I would pay full price for this when my bottle runs out. I love it!! New fav cleanser
Multi-benefit 3-in-1 cleanser
Kathy from Littleton, CO
I love the multi-benefit 3-in-1 cleanser but think that it is a lil pricy for everyday use.
I would buy again
Jan from Myrtle Beach
I use it at bedtime to remove cosmetics and as a serum and skin brightener prior to moisturizer. It saves on multiple steps in the cleaning process
SLM from Arkansas
I am super skeptical about face cleansers. My face is super sensitive and I decided to try this product since stuck at home. I absolutely LOVEEEE this cleanser and will forever be buying this!! I use it twice a day and my face is soooo super silky soft afterwards! So happy I gave this a shot!
My Favorite Cleanser!
Angie from Texas
This cleanser is amazing! It's my favorite! It's 3 in one! First, the bottle is huge and you don't need a lot just a little, it lathers really good. It cleanses and tones marvelously without stripping my skin and leaving it dry. It's worth the money trust me! Buy it!!!!
do not recommend

Tjim96 from Virginia
I love this cleanser! To give you more perspective I'm 23, tan complexion, with dull, uneven skin tone and dark spots. I've been looking for a vitamin c cleanser to brighten my complexion and this works great. It doesn't burn but still cleans and exfoliates and doesn't irritate my face. In conjunction to this product I have used the derma E- vitamin c intense serum and a couple nights a week I combine it with the derma e-vitamin c Internse night cream and I can dramatically see a difference in 2 weeks time. I highly suggest this face wash!
Eve from College Station, TX
I've used so many other cleaners and nothing beats this one. My skin does feel softer and looks brighter and it's only been a week. I bought it just because it was on sale and why not try something new? I ended up loving it!
Love this cleanser!
Julie from Montclair ca
Ashley from Colorado
Great gentle cleanser. Bought due to the ingredients and reviews. I have combo skin so it is a bit more on the mild side for resolving T-zone areas. Otherwise love how clean it makes my face feel and after 2 weeks seems to make skin look brighter. I wash twice a day and use another cleanser with exfoliation for a "deeper" clean.
This works! Will be purchasing again
Kk from AK from Palmer, Alaska
I use this product just as it says to- rub into a dry face in circular motions and then rinse with warm water!
It IMMEDIATELY has made my skin brighter and my complexion more even! I have had acne scars for a long time, and they are usually red after cleansing, but not when I used this product! My sensitive skin has not had a bad reaction which is good! I use it at night followed by my Thayers toner and my Mamonde rose gel moisturizer. My skin is so happy and feels nourished and clean.
This product does NOT leave that tight feeling after I've cleansed. It has NOT made me break out. The scent is subtle and fades away quickly. A little does go a long way in my opinion. I can't recommend this enough- AND THEY ARE A CRUELTY FREE BRAND!
Random purchase gone RIGHT
Nic from Long Island
I purchased this during the 50% off sale and I was skeptical at first because you apply it to dry skin. But it takes all my makeup off and makes my skin feel very refreshed. I haven't touched a makeup wipe since I started using this.
Jordy from Ohio
I looooooove this product and will be purchasing again! The only issue i have had is it does make my eyes sting for a little bit after use but totally worth it. I love experimenting with facial cleansers and I will say this took top spot! It leaves your face feeling so fresh after a long day!
Bad batch? Or fake reviews?
Jules from Florida
I was excited to try this new cleanser & saw that the reviews were really good. Many reviews stated that it had a nice fragrance & they would really tell a difference on their face when using it. Well, like some other products I've ordered during the 21 Days of Beauty event, this product was nothing like the reviews suggested. The odor it exudes is awful. It smells musty, like old chemicals. Maybe that's how they are able to sell these products at a discount? I only used it twice & decided I couldn't handle the smell. I am not usually sensitive to any type of fragrance, but the issue was that this wasn't a "fragrance." It really smelled like it was a bad batch or really old & they just needed to get rid of it. Bottom line, when the stores re-open I will be returning it.
Instant change in my skin
SL from Chicago, IL
I am 29 and struggle with acne and dark spots caused by acne scarring. I've always struggled from small flaky pimples but this past month I really began to struggle with hormonal acne. This product was on sale during the 21 days Ulta sale, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I've tried many products and I've never received results like this. My small flaky pimples have started to disappear! I really dislike the smell but the results are totally worth it!

I use it to take off my makeup and wash my face at night
I Love everything Dermadoctor!
Jill from Illinois
I use this at night to take off makeup. It melts the makeup off and is still gentle on skin.
I would definitely keep using!
JennyD from Crestline , CA
I use to cleanse at night. Love the way my skin looks in the morning. I can see the difference. Clearer and brighter skin. I tried using it in the morning but it was a little drying.
