How to Use
Rated 4.65 out of 5 stars
I received a sample size of this product in my Ipsy bag a few months ago and just loved using it so much that I decided I needed to buy the full size product! The price was a lot cheaper than I thought it was going to be and that was a pleasant surprise when I went to my local Ulta.
It makes my face feel really fresh and it really is gentle on my very fair sensitive skin. It doesn't make my face red or sensitive and doesn't make me break out! I use it every morning in the shower; the directions recommend using 2 pumps but I feel like I only really need one. The smell could be considered strong for some people but I find it really pleasant and sweet, so if you don't like strong fragrances this might not be for you.
The only downside? This cleanser isn't very moisturizing and because I already have dry skin, it tends to dry it out even more after use. However, I always use a face moisturizer after I shower and the slight extra dryness doesn't end up being a deal breaker. I feel like how good the cleanser feels outweighs the slight dryness when I'm already using a moisturizer after the fact; AND it's not the type of dryness that doesn't respond to moisturizer. At first I was using another sample moisturizer from the same Ipsy bag but I just started using Kinship's own Marshmellow moisturizer and so far it works amazing well with the cleanser, I'm honestly in love.
I purchased this cleanser as well as the Kinship chemical exfoliant and moisturizer. I really like the smell of all 3. The texture of the cleanser is smooth--it doesn't bubble, it doesn't irritate my skin, etc. Honestly, my skin does look pretty smooth, although as mentioned it hasn't prevented acne breakouts as well as some other product lines I've used in the past.
It may seem petty, but my biggest complaint about this product is bottle design. Between uses, the cleanser will clog up the spout in such a way that it shoots Everywhere. I've had to adapt to squirting directly into my hand instead of an inch or so above it and even then, sometimes product will shoot out in some wild angle and get on my walls anyway. If you do buy this cleanser, you're going to want to religiously scrape away dried product before use...

Very basic cleanser. Gets the job done built doesn't get me excited to wash my face. The bottle design is horrible. The spot faces straight out instead of down and it tends to clog a bit so if you aren't careful to pick up and tip the actual bottle downwards you end up squirting face wash all over your dang bathroom. My bathroom has gotten more face wash on it than my face in the last 3 months.

I've been using this cleanser for the past 6 months and it's doing exactly what i wanted it to. I used to have a face full of acne and once my face cleared up with other products, i decided i needed to maintain my skin with a clean cleanser that doesn't strip away too much or cause irritation.
I've tried a few other cleansers while i was using this one. I was also using tula which i feel is somewhat equally as good (for comparison). I like the bottle design as it's super cute and I love the smell and consistency. Weirdly enough, i feel like once i move on to another cleanser I'll miss the design of this one, it really is cure! and i disagree with comments saying that it spurts everywhere. I never had that problem. I feel clean after i use this cleanser but it's not a super clean where i feel like i just washed my face with detergent.

I love this! It smells sooo good and is really gentle but still removes makeup. I just wish it was a tinsy bit cheaper. I haven't finished my bottle yet so we'll see how long it lasts!

this cleanser is amaaaazing. the consistency is so buttery and smooth so it feels very luxurious washing my face with this! it doesn't foam up so it feels more gentle than an average cleanser, but my face still feels clean after using it - and definitely not stripped. it removes oil effectively (it works great in a double cleanse) and also lightly hydrates! adorable pink color in an adorable pink bottle with the best smell EVER. i'll be using this forever. good job kinship. < 3

I like the smell and it removes my makeup easily. My skin did feel softer after the first use. It's a runnier substance so you can't easily use your fingertips to apply. It's the type you need to put in your palm and lather before applying to your face. Other than that, I had no complaints. It does the job, it's gentle and it smells pleasant.

I love this cleanser! I use an oil cleanser first (in the evenings only), and this cleanser is my second cleanse (or only cleanse in the morning). I did find the scent strong at first, but now that I am used to it, I really like it. It is not at all stripping and leaves my skin feeling so soft. My skin is acne-prone, sensitive, oily, and dehydration-prone (really has it all), and this didn't cause any break-outs, dryness, excessive oiliness, or allergic skin reactions for me.

I am hooked for life! I have very sensitive skin, and have used only It Cosmetics face wash for years. Recently, I have had a reaction to their formula. I received a sample of Naked Papaya in an Etsy box. It removes all my make-up - which is a lot, and it leaves my skin soft and moisturized. I ordered the big bottle recently, and I will never use anything else. Thank you Naked Papaya! I will tell everyone I know! Cannot wait to try the rest of your line. Sincerely, Glenda Weaver

I liked it at first, came in an Ipsy bag. I've been using the cleanser and moisturizer for about 3 and a half months and it's breaking my skin out bad. Face masks don't help and I've always had breakouts by the mouth due to them but this cleanser made my forehead break out bad and caused dryness. Love that it's cruelty free, vegan and natural ingredients but it just didn't work for me
Hanna from USA
Before picking up this product I was using the highly recommend Hydrating facial cleanser from CeraVe. I thought that thing was doing great for my skin....before I bought this. I purchased this cleanser for the environmental aspects of the company, but I never want to use anything else. All of my smaller breakouts cleared up, my acne scars are fading, my skin is softer, my face feels truly clean and my pores are getting smaller. Love this stuff!!
Elizabeth Olsson from USA
Be tried a lot of products fir my adult acne. So far, Kinship is the only thing that's done a good job of clearing my acne without drying out my combination skin. It's also much more affordable than other products I've tried and I like that it's a clean and environmentally-friendly brand too.
Heather from USA
I got a sample in my Ipsy glambag and loved it so much I bought the full size version. I tend to have dry sensitive skin, and this cleanser is perfect. It has a great smell, and the texture is nice. You don't have to use a lot at a time. I feel like it makes my skin really clean and that it removes all of my make up. The best part is that it does not leave my skin feeling dry.
nb from USA
this cleanser is my go-to!! i love how gentle it is and the smell of it. i have sensitive skin and occasional little bumps and my forehead and this helps to clear the bumps without drying or being too harsh. it's a big size for a great price!
Claire from USA
This is a decent product! It helps combat excessive oiliness and clogged pores on my face, but I do still experience breakouts. I really like the consistency and effectiveness of this cleanser—it cleans very well and does not strip skin, but does curb some excess oil. My skin did get a bit red and irritated at first, but seemed to get used to it after continued use.
Laur from Cali
I have dry skin and I enjoyed it. It's a good daily cleanser. It didn't really add to the appearance of my skin, so that is why I give 4 stars.
Elizabeth Prato from USA
I am very used to cleansers being marketed as gentle been then be way too much for my sensitive skin. I've heard so many things about this cleanser I thought I'd give a go I was so surprised when I used it for the first time it smelled amazing cleaned my skin WITHOUT stripping it and leaving me tight and dry and itchy. A new favorite!
Charlene Holder from USA
The product is so gentle on my skin and feels great afterwards. I have dry skin so something like this is pure heaven for me!!! My skin feels soooo refreshed, cleansed, and actually have helped even out my skin tone. Will be buying more once I run out.
Haleigh from USA
This is the best cleanser I've ever tried. It's gentle and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. My face feels plump, soft, and moisturized after using it. It's been a godsend for my dry skin patches. It never dries out my skin.
xx from us
I love almost everything about it! The texture, smell, feeling, ingredients, etc. but I was so sad to find out that it dried my skin out! I have dry skin, eczema, rosacea, and keratosis pilaris. so it's not wonder that I dried out, I can only use non lathering cleansers. But I LOVE everything else about it! Definitely buy if you have normal-oily skin ^•^

After I use this cleanser my Face feels so soft and refreshed, and it smells great!

I used this for a while before I started to notice that my face started getting dry flaky patches that wouldn't go away. I stopped using this cleanser and my face returned to normal.
Vic from Montana
I have tried so many cleansers in my 33 years. This is the best cleanser for my skin. I have dry skin and I live in a dry climate. This doesn't strip me of whatever moisture This climate leaves in my skin. I love it so much! It is gentle enough for use day and night. I am not a double cleansing type of gal, so perhaps if you are, you may find this to be stripping. I also have seborrheic dermatitis and this doesn't cause flare-ups. I am also using retinol and it doesn't cause any irritation to my skin. Keep in mind, what works for my skin might not work for others, but I always recommend this cleanser.
Alexandria Mase from USA
My skin literally shines after using this product. I still have breakouts from wearing my mask during work (Always wear your mask, skin care isn't nearly as important! Breakouts go away!) but using this product has helped so much. They're far less frequent and not nearly as painful! I never want to stop using this product.
Alli Doll from Scottsdale AZ
This product is amazing. I feel that people reviewing this product low are used to foaming cleansers and this is not one. This product works best on a dry or slightly damp skin like an oil cleanser and even removes me mascara. It's my number one because it cleans out my pores without even needing a wash cloth. Also, I am sensitive to smell but love that it smells like fruit. :)
