Most Helpful Positive Review Lots of foam!!!!
I just purchased this to use with my sonic cleanser. I absolutely love it!!!! I like a lot of foaming action with this type of cleaner and this product delivers. Face feels super clean. Another hit Clinique!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Epic Fail :(
I have loved every Clinique skincare product I have purchased, and I really wanted to love this soap, but it is a huge miss for my skin. I usually use type 2 soap but type 1 clarifiying lotion and 1-2 lotion in my 3-step regimen. I have only been able to use this sonic soap once a day, as it absolutely strips my skin, and I have done nothing but break out (in both blemishes and dry patches) since I started using it. Some of the foam got up into my nose one time and it burned like crazy, but that was nothing compared to when some ran into my eye in the shower. I am so grateful that I started using the sonic cleansing brush well before I tried this soap, or I might not have given the brush a chance. The brush is fabuous, and when used with my regular Clinique liquid cleansing soap, it's amazing. But with this soap, my skin feels tight, breaks out in blemishes and dry patches, and never looks hydrated or bright. Such a huge disappointment! :(

Shawna from Nashville
I've been looking for a cleanser that doesn't make my face feel dry after and I've found that in this! I have an oily t-zone and dry cheeks and this is great! So foamy, and it makes you feel so clean! I have not had any breakouts or anything!
My Go To Soap

I have always used clinique soap for my face. This one is the best one yet!!
Downgrade from Foaming Sonic
Karina from Washington
Very disappointed in the formula change from the Foaming Sonic cleanser that was in the green packaging. I thought I had found a life-long facial cleanser/soap in the old formula, but the new formula does not foam as well and doesn't clean as well (the old formula gently and completely removed my eye make up, using nothing but my hands and water). This formula dries my face out more than the old one, but is easily fixed with toner and moisturizer. I even tried to buy the travel version of the old formula from Ulta because it still displayed the green bottle on their website, but unfortunately, when it arrive it was the pink bottle. I'm hanging on to the ends of my old formula bottle and once my new pink bottle runs out, I will start the process again of trying to find a new cleanser.
The one positive thing about this soap is that you only need a tiny bit and it lasts a long time, which is unfortunate because it's not terrible enough to throw out, so I'll be stuck with it for awhile. It won't last as long as the green packaging because I have to wash twice to get 1/2 the cleansing as the old formula.
I am a loyal customer. No better face wash!

I use daily in shower

I had mistakenly purchased the cleanser for combination/oily skin. It was terribly drying. When it dawned on me that I had purchased the wrong one, I purchased this one.
While using it as part of my daily routine, I noticed that my skin was still very dry, irritated. One day, I noticed that after using this product, and before using my moisturizer, my skin was very tight and burned. I discontinued use and haven't had a problem since. My skin is now healing from the dryness.
I would not recommend this product.
Bizz from Annapolis, MD
This product is great! It is really foamy, and the foam is very thick, and a little really goes a long way with this product, it's worth the price. Now, I will say that I am someone who does not have a lot of acne, so if you are looking for something with stronger affects, I wouldn't be able to provide much help, but for me, its wonderful!
Ashley from Ohio
Removes makeup and foams up well with just the tiniest bit
Doesn't compare to your old sonic foaming soap
Mikki from Cleveland, OH
This soap doesn't hold a candle to the old foaming sonic soap, designed for the sonic face cleansing system. I don't know why you discontinued that product, but this is a downsize to that one. Its not as thick, it doesn't foam as much, and it is literally a lousy product. You should try to save money in other ways, not on the publics expense. There are people who depend on your products. Why did you discontinue the sonic facial soap anyway? too tough on the budget? well, in my professional opinion: this product sucks!
Love it... cleanses my skin and leaves it so soft and clean
TJ from Wisconsin
Recommend this for those that need to really cleanse your skin and have it feeling refreshed afterwards. I struggle depending on the time of year with dry skin or oily skin and this products is perfect for right in between...I can use it any time of the year and it is fabulous.
I'm in love with this cleanser!
Lena from CO
This stuff is awesome! It's so foamy that just a pea-sized amount is plenty to thoroughly cleanse my face and neck. It doesn't dry out or strip my skin at all. My skin survived winter thanks to this cleanser, the Clarifying Lotion 1.0 and Moisture Surge Intense — love, love, love!
A good gentle cleanser
Desiree from Richmond, TX
Cleans very well with while being so smooth and silky to the face.
Perfect! I wish it was available in the jumbo size.
Clinique4ever from Centerville, OH
After washing my face with my body wash in the shower my skin is very dry and flaky. I use this foaming facial soap with my Clarisonic facial brush after showering and follow up with Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion +. This soap is moisturizing and lathers well. I prefer this foaming soap over the traditional All About Clean Liquid Facial Soap. The liquid soap is too runny, and slips through my fingers and down the drain. With Clinique products costing as much as they do, I can't stand wasting a drop! The Rinse-Off Foaming Facial Soap is different. It is more drying and doesn't moisturize the skin as well. If you have dry skin and are looking for a facial soap, I'd definitely recommend this one. My only complaint is that it's not available in a jumbo size like the rinse-off foaming facial soap. Hopefully it will be offered in a jumbo size in the future. It's definitely a permanent part of my skin care routine ❤
Xela from Chicago
I use several Clinique products that I'm happy with. But after turning 30 (or wearing masks 24/7) my skin had a crisis and decided it needed a break from a long relationship with Dermalogica. Instantly felt after first use like ALL had been stripped from my skin. That squeaky clean feel! I like that but it kinda feels dry. Unfortunately, as I rinsed the facial soap off, some tricked into my (closed) eyes and OMG. Ow. I'm continuing to use this until gone but unless you are a pro at avoiding getting the soap in or around the eyes by accident...save yourself. I do like their All in one micellar milk though!
smashley from Arizona
I got this as a gift around Christmas time and I had to buy more! I don't even use it with the sonic brush but I still love it. It's the best cleanser I've found in a while. It has a luxurious lather and foam and my skin feels so good after using it! I feel like it does a great job of doing a deep clean while still gentle at the same time. Love it!!
Not what I recieved
Linda from Pleasant prairie, wi
I ordered the above but got the new formula. I received the one for dry skin, which I do not have. So now I have to exchange it. You can only purchase one for dry or oily skin, there is not one like above picture.
Jay from NC
This is my first time with this cleanser and I'm truly pleased. I have oily-combination skin, some uneven dark spots, and this cleanser is great. Truly removes oils and dirt but leaving soft skin. I rubbed my skin after washing with this & immediately loved how my face felt. I've used it for the past two weeks & my skin has already cleared up, with the help of the moisturizing lotion & oil-free gel. Ordering more!
My One and Only.....
Linda from OR
I have used this cleanser for a long, long time. Where once I double-cleansed with this, I have been using Clinique's micellar wipes first, then the cleanser, then clarifying lotion. A tiny bit goes a long way, and provides a luxurious lather that cleanses well.
This product is just amazing!!!!!
Violet from Happy Valley OR
I used it a few times, and this is like magic!!!
Maaaaaggggiiieee from Hillsboro, Oregon
I use this foaming facial soap everyday and i'm very satisfied with the results. I am very happy I tried Clinique in 2012. i've been using this brand since then.
I wouldn't buy this again
Gabbie from Stoddard, NH
Look, I'm not trying to deter anyone from buying this product but, with that being said, I want to warn those with acne. I used this sample over the summer & loved it. So, I decided to buy it. Biggest mistake. I know your skin purges & that's cool & all but I know my skin & this product made me break out like crazy. I went from having clear skin to having a face full of acne seemingly overnight. I know everyone's skin in different but for the ladies with cystic acne just beware this may agitate your skin. Thank god for aloe because I immediately threw the cleanser out after a few weeks of using it. I know I'm just one person & what doesn't work for me might work for others, but just proceed with caution. However, it left my skin so clean but the breakouts were too much for me.
This does not remove makeup.
KAustin from Austin TX
I was expecting a different result from this facial wash. It doesn't not effectively clean your skin.
RoriBee from Atlanta, ga
I bought this along with other Clinique items for my teenage niece to get her going on good skincare. Really bummed that when I got this cleanser in the mail it had a completely different package (sonic care cleanser). The product description does say different packaging is being evolved in, but now I have to explain to my niece that she can still use this without the sonic brush - because it's the cleanser that went with the no longer being sold sonic brush! I ordered quickly via my mobile so just didn't see the description. My fault, but still bummed since this was a gift.
I would buy this again.
NJT from Snellvile GA
moisturize and cleans well
Luxurious and Non-drying
Courtney from Philadelphia, PA
Really nice to use. This soap doesn't dry out my skin and works up to a luxurious lather. Highly recommend if you have a sonic cleanser.
My forever product

Leaves my skin clean and soft
