Most Helpful Positive Review Okay cleanser, better products out there
This is a good cleanser, but it is not the best that I have used. I have combination/oily skin for most of the year and normal to dry-combination in the heart of the winter. I bought this product at the beginning of February 2013, and I have used it every morning and night. It is non-irritating and does not leave the skin with a tight, stripped feeling. It works especially well as a morning cleanser when I'm just washing away any sweat / oil production from the night and don't have any makeup to remove. The issue that I have with this product is that at night, even if I use a makeup wipe before cleansing my face, I feel that all this product does is remove the residual makeup. Often times, I'll have to wash my face twice just to feel like the product has penetrated through to my skin.
I will say that this product worked better for my skin in the winter/early spring months than it did throughout the summer. It could be because my skin type changed or it could be that my skin built up some kind of tolerance to it. I would definitely give it a shot as it has not caused any bad side effects for me... I just don't think it's the best product for my personal skin care needs. [On a side note--I have recently switched to Philosophy's purity and it seems to be better at getting my combo skin truly clean]
I'm torn between giving this product 3 and 4 stars, but I have gone with 4 because the product is well-priced.
Most Helpful Critical Review One Use - Rash
I never write reviews. However, I read them religiously to determine if I'm going to buy something so I wanted to share. I do not have sensitive skin and I never break out using new products. I have mostly clear skin with the occasional breakout. I have the seaweed cleanser and this one was on sale so I decided to give it a try last night. This morning, the entire bottom of my face/jaw/chin is broken out in a red, heated, itchy rash (it's as gross as it sounds). I'm hoping with discontinued use that it will go away but I'm struggling to even cover it with makeup. I will never buy this product again and be very cautious with this brand in the future.

Djc from Tucson Az
As an older person with rosacea, I usually don't try anything new. Heard good things about this brand. Cooling with gentle cleaning and didn't irritate my skin.
Stormiela from USA
Didn't do much for my skin and feel like it cleaned just okay.
Really enjoy this cleanser
Cheryl from Winston-Salem, NC
This took a couple uses to appreciate. It's like applying a lotion to your face. While it doesn't foam up or lather, it leaves my skin feeling cleansed and soft. While the scent isn't ideal compared to other products from this maker (it smells like grandma), I like it so much that I overlook the smell.
This is trash
desiree from Tampa
does very little to actually cleanse skin. I was wondering why I kept getting pimples...when I washed this morning and toned my toning pad showed dirt....like my skin was never cleaned to begun with...I've been using it for a week and my skin has been crazy with breakout. no wonder. it's not actually being cleaned
Just not a fan
Heather from Southeastern US
Make sure you are doing the double wash on your face with this stuff. Only works for me when I use a scrub first. Doesn't lather well either. Feel like it slides off my face more than cleanses. With all that being said it may work for someone with delicate skin.
Doesn't get all the grime off
brikri from ca
The product smells nice and has good consistency, but I find that it just doesn't clean my face very well in comparison to my other cleansers. I know this because there is always a lot more makeup left on my toner pad after I use this face wash, so it is not getting all my makeup off.
Only Cleanser that Works for Me
H Dawg from Arkansas
First time I used this I wasn't expecting an immediate change in my skin... but I woke up the next morning and my skin was clear, refreshed, and camera-ready. I use the cucumber toner and vitamin c moisturizer with this every single day and all I want to do is take pictures of my skin because it looks (and feels) so healthy.
I didn't believe it!!!
LA48 from Redlands
This face wash is amazing!! I love the way that my face feel soft and smooth after I wash- You won't be disappointed
I will be using this product from now on
Niki from Georgia
I love this facial cleanser. I normally have some burning, dryness and sensitivity to facial cleansers but this doesn't both me to use twice a day, everyday!
I will be a customer for life with this product.
Baby blue eyes from SC
My partner and I both have been using this product for over a year and will continue using. He has very oily skin whereas I have combination and this product works well for us both. I notice that if I don't use it for a few days my skin will start getting oily and I will have very minor break outs (my skin has never been very acne prone).
Favorite Go-to face cleanser
Dee from Richmond, Va
Perfect for dry skin. Very little product goes a long way. The bottle looks bigger in person so it's worth the price.
Kira from Florida
I don't use it everyday but when I do my face fees so refreshed and clean.
Brittany from NH
Its a nice face cleaner. I have combo skin and its perfect.
Love this product for an everyday use
Jen from Philadelphia PA

Wishy-Washy...Now Just Hate It!
The Jinx from NJ
My Mom gifted me this cleanser and I decide to use it since my go to product was out of stock...I check all the reviews and decide to give it a chance. At first it reduce a few of the pimples I had and it also seem to help my acne scars however after a few more uses pimples began to appear; of course I debated on not using this product anymore but just as new pimple came; it went away. Finally after a month a half I notice my forehead which never had pimples began to have small cluster of pimples/whiteheads. I finally stop using it and it clear up....I rather stick to my go to product from now on!
Not for makeup removal
Sophia from North Durango
This a great refreshing cleanser but not to remove makeup it's very hydrating and great 10/10 would recommend
awful awful awful
liz from usa
To start, the smell of this is awful. The packaging is so cheap and annoying. I don't even have sensitive skin and I feel like this made my skin burn. I couldn't even try to finish the bottle I ended up throwing it out.
Did not cleanse my skin
Olivia from NC
This did not cleanse at all for me. I wanted to like this product but even after using it in the shower I my skin still felt unclean. I thought that I just had to get used to it but the longer I used it the worse my skin looked. Even my fiancé who doesn't care what he washes his face with felt that it didn't do anything and did not like it.
My All-Time Favorite Product
Oily Skin from Alabama
I use this every day, morning and evening. It leaves my skin feeling dewy and soft. I first used this with a sample kit of a personalized MB regime. I would recommend this to everyone!
Hien_nessy from MS
This gel felt so nice on my face, however, I felt like it wasn't "cleansing" my face. I try to alternate between using this and the foaming cleanser, but I love the latter so much more.
One of my favorite cleansers
Hazel from United States
I use this cleanser on a daily basis. I love that it does its job very well and even removes heavy makeup with just one round of use.
My skin texture improved
Dre from Los Angeles
This I got as a sample it is amazing it is not soapy or foamy it's just like a gel mostly feels amazing smells amazing and leaves your skin so soft I love it also it has improved the texture on my skin will buy full size
Christie from Jacksonville FL
I bought this for my husband after an aesthetician recommended an enzyme cleanser for his acne prone skin and this has worked miracles. His skin is noticeably clearer with structured, continuous use and helps balance oil as well. This is a great product.
MichyT from East Brunswick, NJ
This is a gentle cleanser that removes light makeup so it's good for everyday use. It has the perfect gel consistency that's not too runny. I like that it is sulfate-free so it doesn't foam up, which is great for my dry skin. It has a short list of ingredients including papaya and grapefruit extracts but also fragrance (subtle) and parabens.
Still learning about it...
Libby from KS
I'm still getting used to this one. It is so gentle that it feels like I'm washing my face with lotion. But when I'm done, my face feels clean so I know it's working. It doesn't lather or anything like that--it just gives me a yummy, plump, clean feeling.
