Most Helpful Positive Review Definitely a must have in you medicine cabinet!
I am usually pretty conservative on the amount of money that I spend on products because I am a nursing student but I looked in the mirror one day and was really disappointed at the way my skin looked. One day I was at Ulta and this lady suggested I buy this Clarins product. At first I wasn't going to due to the price but then she sampled it on my face. What also got me is that the Ulta employee was able to tell me what every ingredient in the product would do! Of course I fact checked what she was saying and it turned out to be right. I wanted to stay away from all the heavily chemicalled products so I decided to give it a try. I am so grateful that I did. I am an island girl and my rich caramel mocha complexion is a lot more even, texture is visibly smoother, and face has this dewy glow. I wash my face with this product every night, use organic aloe vera juice as a toner, and my Cetaphil face moisturizer. In the morning time I do the same routine except I swap out my Clarins for my Neutrogena ultra gentle creamy face wash since the brightening effects of the Clarins could make your skin a little more susceptible to the sun. After the first month of doing this I noticed a drastic difference and wore less makeup. When I ran out two months later, I was confident enough to go out bare faced! There was no doubt in my mind that I had to go get another bottle! This product is definitely a staple in my medicine cabinet!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not effective
This is a very expensive face wash marketed as an exfoliant. The exfoliating properties are non-existent. I would only recommend this if you have super super sensitive skin and looking for a barely-there manual exfoliant. Otherwise, I would save the cash and go with St. Ives Green Tea Scrub or even Freeman's Charcoal Sugar scrub (super exfoliating).

I was disappointed in Clarins after using this product. It felt very harsh and smelled like an industrial cleaner. No thanks.
Not that great
Jen from Dallas, tx
I wanted to try this because of the reviews instead of my normal face wash but was disappointed. This product smells great but not worth the money. It left my face red, didn't do a good job at unclogging my pores, but my skin did feel soft after. I'll be sticking with St. Ives green tea and walnut exfoliate. Cheaper and works great!
DC from Huntington Beach, CA
The face wash smells great and leaves my skin soft after use, but it does make my face red. It calms down after 15 minutes , but there must be an ingredient that aggravates my face.
Like but not worth the cost
Lisa from Charleston, SC
I like but just not worth the cost.
My face feels young and smooth! (and I am 54)
DeannaC from Post Falls,ID
Just started using this product, 7 days in, and I am alre4ady noticing smoother and softer skin! I love it!
It works great
Elle from Tennessee
I tried this product based on the good reviews. I have combination of oily and dry skin. I want to keep my pores clear and unclogged as much as I can. This product works great but not perfect. It makes my face feels clean and I could see a little difference on unclogging my pores and clearing/brightening skin. The only thing is I have to use another cleanser (Cetaphil face wash)when I try to remove my sunscreen ( I use Olay). I'm also not a fan of the smell, but that is just personal opinion (you might like it). Overall, yes, I do recommend this product and actually have already repurchased. :)
This is great and gentle enough to use 5 days a we

biteme from KY
this was one of the 1st products I started using when new to clarins. got a facial, it felt so good. glad its stayed around. use it 3x a week. more on vacation. does just what it's supposed to, w/o stripping my face bare! did I say it smells good too?
Lynds from CO
In just under a week of use, this has helped to improve the texture on my cheeks. It feels nice and is not too gritty as some physical exfoliants seem to be. It lathers well and also has a delightful but soft scent.
Love this - so refreshing!

I use this daily to exfoliate and refresh my skin as part of my overall skin care program. Love the scent which is clean and fresh
An Exceptional Cleanser
Margaux from Enosburg Falls, Vermont
I've used Clarins One-Stela's Exfoliating Cleanser with Orange Extract for about a decade now and it's the perfect cleanser for my skin. It gives just the right amount of exfoliation to deeply clean and smooth my skin. I love that is a cleanser and exfoliate all-in-one! The orange extract provides a delicious fragrance that adds to the overall feel of cleanliness and smoothness. This product makes washing my face a complete sensitive and sensual experience. Since I've been using this product, I constantly receive compliments on the clearness of my complexion. I highly recommend
Gentle exfoliating and wonderful smell

Love the scent
EMC L from University place wa
I start my mornings with this cleanser. I love the citrus scent and it melts away dirt for fresh skin feeling without over drying my skin. My skin feels great without tight. And also this scent makes me feel good.

I've been using this every morning for years. My skin is smooth and gorgeous. It's the perfect gentle exfoliator. I've tried similar products by other brands and none compares to this one. It smells fabulous and works like a charm.

ONE OF MY FAVES
Stephanie from Montebello
I absolutely love this exfoliating cleanser! It has such a nice smell and doesn't dry out my skin. After use it leaves my skin super soft! And it's definitely not rough on the skin either. This is my fourth purchase and I will continue buying :)

Dane from Sacramento; CA
It's one of my favorites. I like the way it makes my face feel after I've used it. I would recommend it to women/men of all ages.
Can't live without this cleanser.
katefromTX from Plano
I bought this after reading the reviews on it. Saw where someone who had rosacea used it and it worked well for her. I have rosacea, some areas of large pores and some flakey areas so very problematic combination skin to deal with. This cleanser has done wonders for my face. No more flaking, pores are clean, acne is no longer flaring up, skintone is clearer and face is soft and feels so refreshed every time. I love, love, love this product.
Too drying for me
Beans923 from Arlington, VA
The first time I used this, my face felt sticky afterward but my chin was very dry. I gave it a few days and my skin continued to get more bumpy and rough even after putting on moisturizers that usually work well. When I stopped using it my face calmed down. My skin has always been somewhat sensitive to fragrance so perhaps that was the culprit here (it has a not unpleasant but significant artificial fragrance). I have combination skin with an oily forehead and nose, and a dry chin.
