How to Use
Rated 4.49 out of 5 stars
I received this product as part of a gift set in their smaller size, and fell in love! First, let me start off with the only thing I'm not sold on: if you wear makeup that's usually tough to get off (like eye makeup) this may not do the job to get all your makeup off. You may need to use this along with some type of makeup remover. However, I feel this is fine to get off most foundation and other makeup other than hard-sticking eye makeup. (My reason for taking off a star)
I would recommend that you use this with some type of face sponge because a little goes a LONG LONG way when you do! Each time I wash my face I put a dot about the size of HALF a pea on my face sponge, and it's plenty to scrub my whole face for a few minutes, and I have to wash out my sponge afterwards for awhile to get it out completely!
The scent is light and fresh. I have very oily skin on my nose, and this stuff just clears away that oil and leaves behind smooth skin without drying out less oily areas. I'm hoping that this will help clear up my skin, but I haven't seen anything yet. I've been using it in the morning and evening for about 3 weeks, so we'll see.
I am SO confused about this product!! I've switched to clean beauty & cruelty free brands. I love using organic, cruelty free products now!! My skin is clear, balanced & I never have to struggle with acne anymore. Unless I try a new product that does not agree with me. As I've started using more organic products, I have learned that not all organic ingredients are best to use on skin. Fragrant essential oils can cause acne and sensitization. So now I make sure that my products on have ingredients that cleanse my skin clean & hydrates! This cleanser only contains cleansing ingredients & non irritating ones. Which should be perfect. In yet every time I use it, my skin feels more & more dry & tight. I have combination skin. An oily T-zone & dry cheeks. This cleanser has caused dry patches on my face. It makes the skin around my eyes raw, sensitive, red and burn to the touch, after just 1 week of using this. I've read so many glowing reviews on this product. So.. I do not know if it just not working for me or if I chose the wrong time to use it, during winter. I've tried using heavy moisturizers with it & I use hydrating facial masks atleast 3-4 times a week. I was using the Cera Ve hydrating cleanser with hyaluronic acid for a year but their not cruelty free & also not organic. It was a really great cleanser but I refuse to give money to animal abusers! I have also tried the Youth To The People antioxidant cleanser & it was just as drying! Perhaps this & the superfood cleanser should only during the summer time in a less drier season. I have been trying to find a moisturizing, organic and cruelty free cleanser but it has been difficult. I think I have finally found 1 from Andalou Naturals. It's the Anti Aging Cleansing milk and I just ordered it so I cannot wait to try it!! I think If this or the superfood cleanser contained hyaluronic acid or sodium hyaluronate, they would be perfection!! I would suggest this cleanser but to stop immediately if your skin feels dry!

didn't clean my face as much as I expected. didn't get that clean feeling and had to use alot just to cover half my face. not really happy with this face wash
Sandra from Cape Coral
I can't smell the fragrance, but boy did it burn my face. I just used it for the very first time and my face and skin is super red and irritated to the point where it burns so much. I will be returning this product. I bought the face cream for day and night, hopefully it was worth it as well as the vitamin c serum. I don't like putting bad reviews but this is very strong for my sensitive skin. 😔
Carolyn H from VA
I heard a lot of good things about Pacifica so I decided to try one. My face felt fresh and clean after washing, but all I could smell was coconut, which was nauseating to me, so I returned it.

It's a decent cleanser, nothing to write home about. I just have to say, the smell is horrendous. It smells like…a word I probably can't write here. Which surprised me based on the description! Won't buy again, and there are better options out there.

I appreciate the ingredients list. I like and have used several of Pacifica's products. You don't need a whole lot of product for application, a dime size amount could be more than plenty. Removes all my makeup in the shower and doesn't dry my face out too much. Even if it did, I apply moisturizer afterward anyway. The smell is interesting, at first it's a subtle coconut smell that transforms into a play-doh-y smell. But maybe that's just me.
Bobert from Mundelein
Made my skin look so bad after a week of use. I wanted to like this. The kale detox one is my favorite so far.

This face wash is gentle and balancing for my skin (normal to oily). Cleans beautifully without stripping as the second step in a double cleanse routine. It's surprisingly gentle for a foaming wash, truly non-drying. A pea-sized drop lathers enough to get the second cleanse done for me. The only thing I dislike about this product is the fragrance. It's not physically irritating and fragrances usually don't bother me, but this smells like vanilla Play-Doh. The fragrance is such an issue for me that I am not repurchasing, even though it's perfect in every other way for my needs and my skin loves it. Too bad. Others love the fragrance, though, so I would definitely give it a try.
CC from New York
I'm honestly shocked at how many people find this product harsh. It is the ONLY face wash I've tried that removes my oils without completely stripping my skin. I also love the scent. Reminds me of coconut and the ocean. I truly love this face wash.
Jessika from PR
I've only used this wash 2 times and omg it leaves my face very soft and fresh without drying. The scent is a little strong for me smells nice. Will keep using.
Ash from Colorado
Made my skin super dry and itchy. My skin changed from soft to rough in a couple weeks.
CP from CA
Works great for normal-combination skin. Non-drying and good for sensitive skin.
Kiki from Mn
I don't necessary have super sensitive skin but this dried my skin very bad to the point it was impossible to go out without feeling horribly self conscious. Smell is good but really strong and almost smells like a perfume, most likely contributed to the irritation. Just spend the few dollars and invest in a better cleanser
boby from texas
i got this as a gift, & i loved it! it removes my makeup so easily, cleanses my face so well & doesnt leave my skin stripped or anything! i love to take this with me to travel. i will purchase again & reccomend you try it.
Kk from Reno
I was so excited to try this face wash, but it ruined my skin for about a week after 4 uses. My skin was so dry and flaky after using it. It literally hurt to smile or scrunch my face.
Lily from NY
I really wanted to love this cleanser because it really does help getting makeup off but the scent is too strong! If this was reformulated without fragrance it would get 5 stars.
oranges from colorado
Love this. Love the smell, lathers nicely. Just love this.
Jersey girl from New York
Wanted to love this but the day after my first use I noticed whiteheads appearing all over my face. Hoping it doesn't get worse 😔 The smell of this is super strong as well, smells like Malibu 🤢
Fareha from Virginia
I love this face wash. It removes makeup and leaves my face feeling so clean. I didnt love the scent at first but I got used to it and now I like it.
nat from seattle
I always removed my makeup with a wipe first so not sure how this product would be with washing away a full face. but it does a pretty good job making my face feel clean. the back says it's scented with natural and essential oils which I find to be extremely sweet and strong. it reminds me of play-doh and sadly gives me a headache so I stopped using it.
Emi245 from North Carolina
Stinks. Awful awful smell! Didn't notice any toning or real cleaning
heather from PA
This face wash is not good for dry & sensitive skin. I have red bumps all over my cheeks, painful breakouts on my chin, and a burning sensation when applying anything after washing my face. Awful product, I wish I had paid attention to the negative reviews. I'll be going back to tarte's deep dive cleanser which is the only thing that doesn't dry my skin out or make me break out.
Rachel from Texas
I love this so much! I'm telling everyone how impressed I am with this face wash. It removes all my makeup without leaving my skin dry.
Amber from Milwaukee
I have been blessed with great skin all my life. I am now 36 years old and I have never experienced skin issues. with that being said, I was so shocked how my face reacted to this face wash! I became dry around my nose. I got bumps all over my cheeks. And I also got little white heads around my mouth. It was insane! thankfully, after I stopped using this face wash, my face cleared up in less than a week. I am not sure how this face wash has such good reviews. Pay attention to those that are giving it low stars!!
Nicole from Ny
I love this brand and this face wash! My skin never ever breaks out when I use this one. Smells good too!! Highly recommend
me_bohemian from PR
The smell is really good. It's smells somewhere between coconut and almond. Very tropical and sweet. I loved the lather. That's the reason why I won't give less than 3 stars. My skin is sensitive and acne prone. After I washed my face with this, it felt so clean, but a few minutes afterwards, I felt my skin a little bit irritated and dry. The day after washing my face with it, I had acne all over my face and I've been weeks without breaking out before this.
