i've been using this cleanser for about two weeks and it's done exactly what is described. i was having bad flare ups with texture and my skin was looking dull and tight. i have combo/dry skin, in the winter my skin gets pretty dehydrated and it's easy for fine lines to appear. this face wash worked just days after using it. my texture improved so much and i'm so surprised at how well it works with brightening my skin, i'm really noticing a glow with consistent use. my fine lines have reduced significantly so my skin looks really healthy and supple. started off using morning and night, but since it's more of a gel consistency i switched to only using in the morning and added a cream cleanser at night for added moisture. only three minor cons - 1. you'll definitely notice the strawberry seed oil. it's not super overpowering and i personally love the scent, but if you have sensitive skin or aren't a fan of scented products it may be unflattering. i do think it lingers a bit throughout the day as well. 2. the gel consistency means it doesn't lather like other cleansers might, which is something i'm used to. i use 2-3 pumps and that's usually enough. if you really want to see a lather would def recommend doing like the instructions say and make sure your face is WET and hands are too. i've found using in the shower gets a better lather. 3. doesn't really clear up acne. i have hormonal breakouts and occasional maskne, and this doesn't make my breakouts any worse but also doesn't clear my skin up any faster. not a deal breaker since it doesn't advertise for that, and even with the occasional breakout this does wonders for fading post acne dark marks, so i just use an acne specific cleanser some nights. overall 1000/10, will probably try the purifying face wash next to see which i like more, but if you're even on the fence - this is a cosign to definitely try this.
I LOVED the packaging, LOVED the scent.
I have combination skin (forehead and nose are oil prone, everywhere else dry like the Sahara dessert), and have used CeraVe Salicylic cleaner at night forever (it was like it fought a battle every night to keep my breakouts a way and woke up with a win each morning), but I ran out and had a couple friends hype this cleanser up so I decided why the truck not, ya know? Yikes yikes yikes. First morning after I woke up with little angry red white topped demons all over in places I usually don't break out... thought,"you're over reacting, use it a week, then decide" .... y'all. A week later and I not only have angry red white topped devils, but I have pustules on my chin, and CYSTIC ACNE FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER. I am so bummed. Sadly will be switching back to my other ): but like I sad, packaging is 5 stars, smells like fresh strawberries, and the consistency is light which is a go. Hope this helps someone!

The instructions tell you it can be a face cleanser or an exfoliador just depends if you do a regular wash or leave it on your face for five minutes. It smells like strawberries and if you leave it on for long it ends up going from white to invisible so you can do other things while you let it set and not feel like you have a crazy mask on. I've only been using it for two weeks and already my skin feels more moisturized and I have less acne and less black heads. I still have to use a moisturizer though if the weather gets really cold because my skin tends to dry out quick. I'm a combo skin type.

I used this cleanser a couple of years ago and loved it. I tried a couple of other ones over the years but this one stayed on the back of my mind. I saw it in store and finally bought it again. Fell in love with it all over. I'm now on to a new bottle. It cleans without drying and it leaves the skin feeling clean. My skin has also stopped breaking out since I started using this cleanser and their toner together. Best pair!

I have tried so many face washes and nothing leaves my face as clear, even, and refreshed as this. Just bought more and will continue

I absolutely love this cleanser. It works so well to remove makeup and clean my face. It's gentle and smells lovely.

My go-to HG cleanser. When I wear makeup, this is the second part of my cleansing routine (after micellar water or a balm). When I'm not wearing makeup, I just use this to cleanse. It never feels drying and it doesn't leave a residue. The scent is light and pleasant. Has an almost gel like consistency so a little goes a long way. I really like the glass bottle and pump design too.

Nice cleanser smells amazing and love the texture but it's nothing crazy special. Wouldn't buy again, maybe if it was a little cheaper! Don't get me wrong it's still a nice cleanser just not worth the money in my opinion.

My skin is so much softer and brighter after using this for a few months. I even have my daughter using this now
Elizabeth from Undisclosed
I use this in morning & night, love the smell and know it's not harsh on my combination skin.

Is it just me or did they change the formula?? My skin used to LOVE this cleanser but the most recent bottle I got made my face extremely red and irritated after the first use! Nothing else new in my routine. Sad to have to stop purchasing this one :(
Colleen from Undisclosed
I love this cleanser and have been using it for over a year. It smells so good, makes me smile, and works well to clean my skin at night.
Shay from USA
Limited ingredients and a great smell! I use this without any moisturizer and it doesn't disappoint!
Karen from Florida
My skin has done a 360, and it was within the first week. My face is clearer and texture is smooth and bright. I have oily skin and this has minimized the oil production. I will purchase again, before my current bottle is finished.

I was so excited when I got this at a great price as a beauty steal. I was even more impressed with the glass bottle. I wasn't a fan of the smell, but it wasn't overpowering. I wasn't a fan of the texture, it just seemed too gel-like, like it melts away as soon as it hits your skin. I always wash my face in the shower after work, and after washing I use toner, serum, etc. The pad for my toner was picking up a lot of leftover dirt/makeup and the cleanser did absolutely nothing to wash away my mascara. Mascara was left under my eye…looked like I was crying with non-waterproof mascara! It really feels like it doesn't clean my face. This was the first time I've ever returned a cleanser because it literally did nothing.

Love this cleanser and won't be without it. t cleans and brightens my skin and leaves it looking fresh and brighter as promised. As a bonus, it is in a glass jar and cleanser dispenses from the pump jar very nicely. High quality for a reasonable price.
Diana from Undisclosed
Best. Cleanser. Ever. I finally found a cleanser that I love - smells delicious, leaves my skin clean, refreshed and exfoliated. After the first use, I quickly noticed how bright my skin was.
Amanda from Undisclosed
Been using for quite some time now as AM cleanser and definitely feel it has brightened my skin tone. At first, the scent was overwhelming but now I definitely enjoy this!!! Skin feels smooth and not over-dried. Gentle enough for sensitive skin.
Teri from Undisclosed
I love how this cleanses my skin. And it smells so pretty. It's my favorite!
Kay from Undisclosed
I like this product very much. The smell is wonderful and it is a gentle cleansing product. However when I received it the entire top of the bottle was broken off. Was able to transfer it to the old bottle but what a messy project. And I did lose some in the process of transfer
Mary from Undisclosed
Have loved the way the Brightening Cleanser gets my face squeaky clean without overdrying, but I'll admit to having broken more than one of the glass bottles by fumbling it in the shower. So happy to both a) get more product with less packaging, and b) have a bottle that's clumsiness-proof. :)
Anina from Undisclosed
I like it but sometimes dries my skin out
Sabrina from Undisclosed
Great for sensitive red prone skin. Smell is natural and not overwhelming. Using it as a mask is a treat.
Myrto from Undisclosed
Another amazing product, similarly to the purifying face wash, it works amazing on my skin and it gives me a nice glow. I give it a 10 out of 5 stars!
KAREN from Undisclosed
With I a week, i have noticed that my skin is clearer and the texture is smooth.
