This cleanser is the best one I've used. I previously used Kiehl's 'Ultra Facial Cleanser' and it was too drying for my skin. This cleanser is hydrating and leaves skin feeling super clean. It smells great, too! I've been using this cleanser for a few weeks now and so far my skin has been blemish free. Definitely recommend.
Really wanted to fall in love with this facial cleanser because I?ve been on the hunt for anything that will reduce the redness on my skin. However, the texture of this cleanser needs some work. It?s way too viscous, so when you open up the cap it just starts oozing out without any pressure and gets all over the place. I went through an entire bottle and it happened every time I opened it.
The Ultra Facial Cleanser has a smaller hole for the product to come out of and that really helps to control the amount of product coming out, but this cleanser has a larger hole and I think that contributes to the problem. I talked to a sales associate at the Kiehl?s store and she said a pump would probably work better (I agree).
On the other hand, this cleanser does exactly what it says it will do. My skin is NOTICEABLY less red after I cleanse my face with it. It doesn?t make me feel dried out and it smells great too. I just wish they reconsidered either the formula or the method of dispensing the product. I?ll be going back to the Ultra Facial Cleanser until they fix this one :)

I have used for several years and continue to use Kiehl's Cucumber cleanser. It is gentle, light, removes impurities, excellent for dry and sensitive skin. After using my skin feels fresh and rejuvinated. Well formulated with ingredients including cucumber extract, lemon and rosemary peel oil. Does great job toning and cleansing my face. I have tried other cleansers for guys, but keep coming back to this cleanser. Would recommend.

I have dry to very dry skin but I still love a foaming cleanser and this is the ONLY cleanser that doesn't dry out my skin or cause me any type of reaction! I have tried others, but nothing compares.

Nice, mild cleanser. Smells good but not too strong.

With covid going around ive been breaking out. The facewash definitely helps with the redness and the severity of the breakiuts. Ive also niticed that it goes away much faster than before i started using it
ME from Green Bay, WI
sooo I am hesitant to put anything on my face. Knowing this product wasn't something detox market would sell made me skeptical, but for the price, I couldn't pass it up! I have dry skin, so I needed a product that was cream-based, rather than gel-based, and I feel like I hit the jack pot with this cleanser!
There is no film or residue while or after using it, the price was amazing for this big tube, and there is glycerin and a bunch of oils in here I would need for my dry skin. Win win here
Avni from San Jose, CA
This cleanser is really good as it is a mild cleanser and cleanses your face well without over-drying. Good for sensitive skin. It maintains skin hydration as well.

This has calmed my red angry face down. Still wearing a mask 8-10 hours a day and this calms my skin when I'm home!
Lady1337 from Spokane, WA
Great cleanser for NORMAL or oily skin. It left my skin red, hot, itchy, and DRY for hours! I would apply moisturizer multiple times and applied cold compresses to calm my skin. I tried this product for a month and it never got better. Should not be sold for "sensitive skin".

Since I have started using the Kiehl's skincare products, I have noticed a difference in my skin. This is just one more product I wanted to try and I really like it.
SkinCareLover95 from Asbury Park, NJ
Absolutely love this face wash. My face was so inflamed and red from the other cleanser I was using, so I gave this one a try. I have EXTREMELY dry and EXTREMELY sensitive skin. My skin now looks flawless after about one and a half weeks of using this in the morning and at night. I also have super stubborn blackheads on my nose. This has cleared those up a good amount as well. I will definitely be buying this again!
Allison from North Dakota
I've been using this cleanser for about a month now just in the mornings (at night I use an exfoliating wash) and I am obsessed! I've always struggled with a little bit of stress/hormonal acne and this cleanser has helped x100. Since using my skin has cleared up so much and feels so clean after use. Would recommend to anyone!
lisa from houston
OK it looks like some of you people need to do your research on ingredients salicylic acid is actually awesome for all skin it helps to remove upper dead layers of skin and reduce redness in irritation before you write a review you should look at the ingredients in the do your research this is an awesome product
Addie from California
This cleanser makes your skin feel clean and pampered like a spa cleanser it definitely has an herbal kind of tea tree oil smell to it but that doesn't bother me personally just something to consider. I used this as a double cleanser with the Dermalogica clear start and it really helped because I had acne and wore make up almost every day I did find the two together to be a little drying though but this cleanser didn't irritate my sensitive skin.
JJ from Chapel Hill NC
Excellent Product! It cleanses the skin and does not dry it out!
Jace20 from Nashville
My skin was dry and they suggested this! What a difference! My skin is not set and feels soft again! Love it!
iam__julie93 from Kentucky
i don't usually write huge reviews but I feel like this one deserves it. I have combination, acne-prone, & sensitive skin. I tend to lean to the oilier side & now getting into the cold & dryer weather my skin needs a lot more help even from my cleansers. I've had this for so many months & finally getting to the verrrryy last bit of the bottle. a small dime size seriously goes a long way. so, you're definitely getting your money's worth.
I have used this EVERYDAY am & pm along with other face products not from this brand and I truly love how it left my skin feeling hydrated & clean, not that tight-squeaky kind of clean feeling. this helps smooth my texture. whenever I have my oh so awesome hormonal breakouts, this is so gentle with them but leaves the rest of my face super soft & smooth. definitely no oily or greasy residue.
love the subtle scent. it's not too strong. And I've been really enjoying the gel like consistency with my cleansers & moisturizers recently because I find those work the best for my skin so I love the consistency & formula of this cleanser. I really couldn't find a con, for me at least, about this product. so, I think it's a well deserved 5 stars for me. I would most certainly recommend and buy this again.
Aliskin from Vancouver, WA
I specifically purchased this cleanser because my skin is dry and sensitive. I was really surprised to review the ingredients during my shower and see salicylic acid, which is extremely drying and generally used for acne-prone skin. I thought Kiehl's used thoughtfully-chosen ingredients but this is just expensive drug store cleanser. Don't waste your money.
Megan from San Diego, CA
This feels so good on my skin, gentle and hydrating. The smell is light and herbal which I like as well. I love it as a morning cleanser but you can use this twice a day!
Kalene from Temecula, CA
It's not my favorite face wash, I like how foamy and creamy it is. Its gentle and smells good but I think it's very basic and could possibly be breaking me out.
Jazmine from undisclosed
I absolutely love this face wash. I have extremely dry skin, and this face wash alone makes my face feel more hydrated. The thickness of the product is just perfect enough to help lock in extra hydration. This product alone will also enhance a natural glow in skin and a soft touch to your face.
Claryssa from FL
This is the best cleanser! I love it so much. It is gentle on the skin and leaves my face feeling so clean and doesn't dry it out.
Meag from NYC
Love this! It is an effective cleanser that washes off clean, but doesn't strip away moisture.
Perfect for sensitive skin, and I loved it last summer after long days in the sun.
It's really gentle, but still does a great job cleansing morning or night. I also think the price is reasonable and it lasts a long time as a little goes a long way.
The only con would be that it doesn't completely remove eye makeup, but I didn't really expect it to. If you're using it for that, you may have to use a proper eye makeup remover.
katttmac from New York, NY, USA
I love this cleanser. I have EXTREMELY sensitive/picky skin and this cleanser is very gentle but still gives me a deep clean feeling. I bought 2 last time so i could keep one at home and one in my gym bag because I can't go a shower without it! gentle enough to use 2x a day.
Julie from Galesferry CT
I absolutely love this product. I will definitely be repurchasing! I already see improvements in my skin.
Rena from New Jersey
I decided to buy this because I'm using the ultimate facial cream and wanted to stay in brands but I was allergic to the matching cleanser. This one is really great for the sensitive skin I have! This is non-drying even in the middle of winter. It also removes majority of my makeup. The smell is more herbal than a refreshing kind of cucumber smell but whatever, it's pretty light anyway and you only really smell it when you first put it on your skin. This is a must try!
