Most Helpful Positive Review Truly gentle for the skin barrier with luxury texture
I bought this cleanser in my local Ulta after seeing it there several times and waiting to see how others were reviewing and getting along with it. I was very impressed with the ingredients; it is difficult to find a gentle milk cleanser that is truly acne safe! Or really any cleanser for that matter. I have just finished a protocol with Roccoco Botanicals to heal my skin barrier and was looking for something to maintain my clear skin and continue to cleanse effectively without stripping the barrier I had just built back up. The value for money here is incredible, I thought at first it was just too good! I decided to buy it and I am so grateful I did. I do not use any foaming cleansers because I have inflammatory acne prone skin post childbirth. My skin is rather normal with oil control and can tend to be on the dry side at times. This cleanser isn't the most hydrating, but it rinses off like a gel and leaves no residue on my skin. It is a white milky-gel with about a medium viscosity. It is just right really and spreads on the skin really well, damp or dry. I wouldn't recommend for makeup removal, this is a skin cleanser not a remover! I use Bioderma Sensibo H2O to remove makeup and go in with this on dry skin, then add a few drops of water on my fingers after working it in about 30 seconds dry. I use in the morning also and apply it on my dry skin and leave it as a mask for a few minutes in effort to benefit form the niacinamide and ceramides in it, then rinse. It leaves my skin soft but also feeling cleansed, without any squeakyness, dry tightness, or dullness often accompanied by cleansers. I have noticed that this helps maintains my skin barrier well since my skin isn't red or pink after cleansing. I would absolutely recommend this for every skin, especially acne prone since there are no real clogging ingredients in this apart from the Tocopherol which is not only last on the list, but is getting rinsed off. Prefer this over my Glossier Milky Jelly!
Most Helpful Critical Review Makes face burn.
Did some research before picking up this item at my local Ulta, only to find out that it makes my face feel really hot when it touches the skin, and even hotter when I run it under water to rinse it off. I'm not sure which ingredient in the bottle is causing the burning sensation, so I would only recommend it to those who know for sure that none of the ingredients on the label will irritate them, because it really did a great job of cleansing my skin and making it feel comfortable after drying. I just can't get past the burning feeling during washing every single time.

I have combo skin, some areas so dry it flakes and some areas so oily my makeup seperates. I have used many high end face washes and this takes the cake. Better than dermalogica, clarity Rx, first aid beauty, or fresh. This face wash visibly shrunk ALL of the pores on my face in 2 weeks. My nose has almost no blackheads anymore and you cant even see the pores on my cheeks. This is not a good wash for moisturizing though, so I reccomend using a stronger moisturizer like a cream after using this.

absolutely love this stuff and recently bought my 3rd bottle I have used the blue gel version for oily skin but I like this much better especially for winter time when my skin is more sensitive gose on smooth and leaves my face clean
JM from Western NY
This is a lotion consistency like the cerave but when I pay my face dry after washing it is TIGHT and so dry. I have oily/acne prone skin for reference. Super uncomfortable afterwards. Not sure if other people had this problem but there is table salt in this cleanser so maybe that's why.

My favorite cleanser! I love how gentle it is on my skin and it easily removes any dirt and makeup.
Does not remove anything
Kate from USA
I don't understand how this is a cleanser. It does not do anything that it is advertised to. I double cleansed using micellar water and this cleanser. I followed with a toner and still had residual tinted sunscreen left.
Are there tips to using this?
Burn my eyes!
J. Yang from Wilmington, NC
My face does really well when it comes to trying new skincare products. My skin is not sensitive at all, but for some reason, this face cleanser burns my skin, especially around the eye area. After three attempts, I had to toss this cleanser away.

Good in winter and when you are using any vit A derivatives. Gentle cleanser that wont strip your skin
Does Not Remove Makeup
Stephanie from Lehighton, PA
This product is great as a second cleanse in your skin care routine when your makeup is already removed. It's great at hydrating your skin, but doesn't really CLEAN the skin. It's like I'm rubbing moisturizer all over my face. I tried double cleansing with it and there was still leftover foundation and mascara.

itsmrsdue from undisclosed
Excellent face wash for all skin types. I have easily irritated skin so I have to be picky about what I use. This doesn't dry me out, cause inflammation etc. it's like a higher end version of cetaphil.
Juzzymom from San Diego
I love this very gentle cleanser. I use it in the mornings or evenings when I don't have a lot of makeup or sunscreen to remove (otherwise I cleanse with an oil first) honestly it's not great at removing heavy weight unless you double cleanse but I love it and for the price it's a steal.
Okay so when I
kaitlinb4 from undisclosed
Okay so when I initially pumped this onto my hand I felt like I purchased the wrong product. So I read the label and reassured myself it was a face wash. It feels like I'm rubbing lotion that won't absorb so it took some getting used to. I have dry/combo skin and I have noticed I have little to no winter dryness since using this! I actually like it although it feels super weird on my face since it doesn't foam!

i like this cleanser, i just do not think it is for my skin type. i have oily/combo skin, so i feel like this cleanser does not clean deeply enough for me to use it every day. i have been having my boyfriend use it, and it seems to be better for his skin type

libbylongstocking from undisclosed
I just started using this product and I LOVE how moisturizing it is as it is rare to find that I a cleanser. It doesn't strip skin at all and feels good after washing. My only complaint would be that it takes a lot of product to wash your full face since it doesn't foam up like other cleansers. You also have to massage it into your skin for a while for it to feel truly clean. Everything else is great and I would recommend giving it a shot.
I always keep this
allien1 from undisclosed
I always keep this on my sink! I will try other cleansers but this is my holy grail. It works so well, does not strip my dry skin and actually gets all my makeup off without burning my eyes. It will last forever and is a great buy for the price. Anytime my skin is having a hard time I always go back to this!
My current favorite cleanser.

My current favorite cleanser. It is extremely and gentle and hydrating on my sensitive skin. Since I started using retinol my skin has been very dry and this cleanser doesn't strip it any further like most cleansers do. Highly recommend

Hannah from Columbus, Ohio
I've been seeing this but kept buying other things. My skin has never "bad" and I had occasional pimples. I'm 27 and my skin has been awful the last 6 months and could easily be hormonal related. I tried the black African soap and it was drying. I tried a few other top companies recommended by dermatologist I work with and they just didn't work, I seen no changes after long use. I started this and my skin cleared up in a matter of a week! My skin looks better than I think it ever has. I was having issues with dry, uneven patches as well and that is completely gone. I add the Cerave PM night cream after using this and I believe those two together work perfectly without clogging pores yet hydrating without feeling greasy, it hydrates the skin perfectly for combination skin. I also started added vitamin C and a small dot of retinol serum which also has my skin glowing but I would not have been able to use those products before using this product as it would always burn due to skins condition. So please, just take a chance it's beyond worth it.

There's smth i've been curious
Wyne from Singapore
I've been wondering the percentage of niacinamide in the cleanser.Ofc I've already bought the cleanser but I'm using 10% niacinamide serum so it's better for me to know about the percentage to be able to decide whether my skin can tolerate another niacinamide product in my routine.
Jiyeon from Ulta
I am gonna keep using this it's pretty good for my skin
Abby from GA
Love love love this stuff. I'm 13 months postpartum and my skin has changed so much since before pregnancy, so I'm relearning what my skin needs. I have sensitive combination skin (oily t zone, normal perimeter that is easily dehydrated), and this stuff is so gentle and non-irritating but still gets out all of the gunk. I tried another cleanser a week ago, my face broke out terribly, and then I bought this hoping it would restabilize everything, and it did! It has a rich creamy texture, very hydrating, but it doesn't feel sticky or thick or heavy or oily. And you get so much product for the price! And the packaging is great because unlike most pump bottles, this has a twist lock setting so it won't spill everywhere if you're traveling with it.
