I have used this product since it came out a few years ago. It lathers readily such that a bottle lasts a VERY long time. The scent is bracing, but light. My skin feels thoroughly clean, but never dried out. I realize it has caffeine as an ingredient. Not sure if caffeine really does anything if applied topically, but I pretend that it does anyway. The only downside is the bottle. The cap on this and other similar Kiehl's products is not good for travel. (I gave up after 3 of these on other Kiehl's products leaked in my toiletries bag during a flight.) Wonderful product, but if you fly..watch out. You will be rinsing your bag in the hotel bathtub.
This is a great product for cleaning your skin without drying it out, but it is not versatile enough to be your only cleanser. Whenever I have some dry or rough skin on my face -- especially in the winter -- I find that this face wash just cleans the surface and does not improve the texture of my skin at all. Even though this face wash doesn't claim to be an exfoliant, it is nonetheless frustrating to have to use another product or a cloth to take off dry skin and restore even texture. I'm not fussy about my skin, but I do like it to be in good shape.
Another down side is that it sometimes dries out your skin, even though the label states that it works "without an over-drying effect". If you use this face wash and then shave, expect to use a fair bit of moisturizer to keep dryness away.
On the plus side it smells great, produces great lather, rinses off easily, and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean. I use it at the end of my shower before shaving, and it helps soften hair and prepare the skin for a comfortable shave.
Overall a good product, but not as excellent as the other Kiehl's stuff I use (Facial Fuel, Facial Fuel SPF 15, Lite Flite Shave Cream).

I've used many different facial cleansers, but I love this one.

It's a bit too drying for my skin despite using the picture profile analyzer.

Works great - use it every morning, and it's super refreshing to wake up to!

this face wash is great. It really lifts off all the gunk on your face. Nice scent and my face not only looks clean it feels clean (Nice tingle).

My stepdad swears by this face wash. So glad it came in a big bottle so he'll never run out. Ordered and received very fast despite Holiday Season.

So this is a face wash for men, but it is great for anyone. It is refreshing and does not have a strong fragrant smell. It is easy on my skin and really makes my skin feel amazing. It keeps my skin clear, not that I'm very acne prone, and happy! I use it morning and night and I don't know if I could ever switch.

I enjoy this face wash, it smells and feels nice. It is actually refreshing to use in the morning
StevenL310 from Santa Monica, CA
Nice product, but not as refreshing as I'd like. More of a nice liquid soap. I remember previously this product felt much better on the skin.
Gift giver from undisclosed
We love the product and the convenient large container. However, bottles regularly arrive with the pump broken and have leaked into the box.

I have purchased and used this product for years. Love the product but for whatever reason the travel size always seems to spill or leak when traveling. I have tried different things over the years to prevent this, but at the end of the day I have to keep it in a ziploc and use the left over that leaks out of the bottle every time I fly. Please fix this Kiehls. Thanks!

Love this face wash because it quickly rinses off your face with very little water... less than 1/2 the amount of water normally required. This is a great thing given that the world is running out of water.
Rica from San Miguel Allende
Feels so fresh and renewed ever morning. I just love this, body fuel wash,etc.
PolinaFromChicago from Chicago
Originally ordered the 3pc facial fuel set with moisturizer and scrub. My husband loved the face wash but went through it so quickly. I just ordered two 1L bottles with the pumps so he has a better idea of what one "serving size" of face wash is. His skin was very balanced afterwards and it helped with oil control.

When reading over the ingredients of Kiehls men's facial cream , I was disappointed to lean they use Laurel sulfate in their ingredients.
Lanham from VA
It cleans really well it adds a mild cool to the face refreshing this is a true 5 star product but if I had to pick something bad about it it does dry skin a little
