Most Helpful Positive Review New favorite cleanser
This is a really awesome gel cleanser for oily skin. It is a really nice thick consistency, it's not runny. It smells really good to me. However, it has one of those scents that I think might be really polarizing, because it's really earthy. It smells familiar, but I can't really place it. It doesn't dry my skin out and is full of ingredients that are really good for your skin. Since I'm transitioning to veganism, this is my new favorite facial cleanser!
Most Helpful Critical Review Just letting others know
So I bought this really really wanting to love it. I just couldn't I either had a sever allergic reaction to it which I don't have many allergies so I don't think that was it. But it left sever burn on my face and now they are peeling 2 days later trying to heal. That picture was still 10 hours after using the product a second time

While my skin was very clear while I was using this, it really dried me out especially on my cheeks.
Burns!! Do not buy!!
Burned from Wisconsin
I really wanted to like this. I never leave reviews! This BURNED MY FACE! It had so many good reviews so I was excited to try it. I do not have sensitive skin and have never had any type of reaction to a new product. I wish I would've seen all the reviews that said it burned peoples face. I can NOT even believe how badly it burned my skin.
Gentle, thorough cleanser
Carma from Tallahassee, Fl
I wash my face morning and night but I mainly use this to deep clean my face in the evening prior to exfoliating, masks, creams, or just going to bed! I love this face wash! I don't feel like I have to scrub, even though I do use a micro cloth after getting my face good and sudsy.
Love this product great for acne.
Victoria from Raleigh
I've recently been experiencing horrible cystic acne on my chin and forehead due to birth control switching on and off. I noticed a difference overnight after one use! My acne was no longer raised and the scars lighter. LIKE WOW! I've only used it three days and love it. Hopefully it continues to work as well.

The moisturizer is fantastic, this face wash however is not very effective
It's ok but not great
Kiyra from Indiana
I tried it out because I'm currently looking for a facial wash that isn't too striping. The first few times I used it it looked like it worked but then after about 3-5 days of using it I got a rash on my chin and my skin did not feel clean.
My favorite face wash!!
Nicole from Arizona
I've tried a lot of face washes for my combination acne prone skin, and this is my absolute FAVORITE!! It cleanses so well & keeps my breakouts to a minimum. Only downside is that it is a little bit drying, so I only use it at night and make sure to moisturize. But I LOVE!
I Can't tell you enough how much I love it!
peachypuddin from ohio
using this makes my skin feel smooth and incredibly clean. usually I feel I should double cleanse especially when I'm wearing foundation. this face wash however really got the job done. the experience is fantastic too it ls such a creamy foam, I love the way it feels. Pacifica always comes through!
Perfect for travel!
Gina from North Prince George, VA
I will definitely be purchasing this again once I run out!
Too drying for me
Maridee from Fontana
When I first tried this product, I was hooked. I have combination, acne prone skin and I felt as though this definitely cleared me up. I even bought 3 bottles all at once after I used my first one because I loved it so much at the time. As I kept using this product, I've noticed it's very drying for my skin. While it might have taken care of some of my breakouts, my skin is often left feeling tight, and screaming for moisture. Not sure if it's just meant for more oily skin types but my skin has never felt drier than with continuous use surrounding this product. I'll often have to apply two layers of night cream just to get my skin's moisture back. Unfortunately, I had to switch to a new cleanser. Not saying this product doesn't work, just be aware of how drying it may be for you

I have oily skin and I honestly found that this did nothing to my skin, I see no change.
Crueltyfreeqween from Fullerton
I have oily skin w big pores and this didn't really do anything for me, I didn't see any change in my skin. This is a flaming type of wash with a distinctive smell. I only gave this three stars because I'm just happy it didn't mess with my skin. Plus it's vegan and cruelty free
did not work for me
dee from texas
This product didn't work on my oily/combination skin, didn't exactly make me break out, but it also didn't prevent a break out, did not make skin feel clean
My Go To
Erica from Dallas,TX
I recently go onto this product during the beginning of quarantine! I was obsessed with their Coconut Milk face wash (Pacifica) like literally I've bought 8+ bottles of it, but i started to get tired of it or rather my skin did. I felt like there was a slippery film on my skin afterwards with it but i liked it better than their Seaweed face wash. I ended up trying this version and i loved it! It was great bc i didn't feel like it dried me out and it took my makeup off easily! Recently I've bought 2 bottles bc they had a bogo for 40% off :)
Meg from Florida
Love this face wash! Feels great and definitely cleans my face. The smell is a bit overwhelming but you do get use to it.
gp from FL
I've just started using this so I'm not sure of the long term effects, but I love how clean my skin feels after - it's a little dry and feels tight so probably not great for my combination skin but it still feels good.
Smell: This stuff has a WEIRD smell but I love it. It reminds me of new construction or a big box hardware store. Feels clean, new and refreshing.
Tossing it in the refrigerator beforehand makes it extra clean feeling!
Amazing Face Wash
Marlie from Pittsburgh
I absolutely love this face wash I've been using it for about a year now and it is amazing. I like to foam it up in my hands before I use it and it feels so good! It will take off most makeup as long as you're not wearing water proof mascara or a big full glam look. My face doesn't feel stripped after I use it. I 100% recommend this face wash if you're thinking about it!
Cruelty free qween from Fullerton
I have oily and acne prone skin and this didn't really do anything for me. I've been using it for about two months now and I see no difference in my skin. I gave this three stars because thankfully it didn't mess up my skin and it's vegan and cruelty free 😌
Gentle and Effective!
Lene from Palm Springs
I absolutely love this product. It's gentle on my combo skin and makes me skin feel fresh and clean afterwards. I ran out of last bottle and am definitely gonna get more! It's kale smell is not too overwhelming, it's not like it stays on your skin.
Carrie from Conway, AR
This is the first review I've ever written but I couldn't not review this product after what happened to me. My face was severely burned after using this face wash. My skin is not even that sensitive. I'm going on the third day after use and the burning and redness hasn't yet subsided. This is such a horrible product.
Deep cleaning that won't strip your skin!
Tina from Ny
I needed a deep cleanser that wouldn't be overly stripping and this is IT. I've been using it twice a day for two weeks and even my acne has reduced.
Definitely not for combination skin of any kind!
Holeigh from Denver, CO
I adore pacifica's designs and I want everything of theirs to be meant for my skin, but it isn't. I have COMBINATION skin. If you have combination skin this product is NOT for you. It IS meant for oily/acne prone skin. My forehead and chin have become super oily and my last cleanser wasn't perfect. I attempted this product; however, it increased the redness in my face and severely depleted the moisture in my face. Even with my multiple step face regimen, it destroyed around my nose and mouth more so than it already is. This may be useful for truly oily skin, but I found it didn't help the acne on my forehead either. It solely dried the bottom portion of my face without any benefits.
I wanted to love it...
Adelyn from Ohio
I bought this cleanser really thinking I'd love it. I have oily and blemish prone skin and this was exactly what I thought would help, however after months of using it and getting zero results I looked for a different cleanser.
FAL from Hawaii
I've never really used Pacifica brand before because I didn't really like the smells but I bought the travel size of this and used it on vacation and my face was burning which has never happened before while using a face wash just a warning to some
Hanny from Indiana
I started to use this and it didn't make my face burn or break out because I have very sensitive skin and I would 10 out of 10 would recommend
