Most Helpful Positive Review Only over the counter product that works for my rosacea
This calming cleanser is the first one that you can actually see work immediately. I have rosacea and very fair skin, I was previously using Clinique's Redness Solution, which gave me painful, persistent acne across my cheeks. With P&L's calming cleanser and the Luxe Oil, my face was significantly less red after the first wash and the acne was gone within a couple days. It keeps my rosacea way calmer than anything else ever has, and my normally oily skin apparently just wasn't hydrated enough, that's gotten was better too. It's a little on the expensive side but for the people who say one bottle doesn't even last a month, I think they're using too much? This only has a mild lather, so if you're expecting more than that I think it's easy to use more than you need. I use it to wash morning & evening and I've been using the same bottle for 2 months and still have a bit left. I will say, if you have to remove make-up, this won't fully do that, I take mine off with micellar water and then wash with P&L, which works great. I will definitely keep using this and I really hope Ulta continues to carry it.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not a fan.
I used this product for a while now and I am sorry to say that I do not like it at all. The smell reminds me of the wash I use for my dog, I'm NOT bashing them or anything because the smell it just an orange smell but it reminds of my dogs wash. Also, it's a gel cleanser and in my opinion it doesn't not cleanse my skin AT ALL. I do like the company and their mission and I will definitely try other products from them, it's just that this product is a failure for me personally. Now that's just my story and my opinion that doesn't mean that it doesn't work for everyone. I received this product complimentary for testing purposes. Most of the time when people receive a complimentary product they feel they have to give a good review, but I don't feel that way because plenty of women that are just like me base their decision to purchase products based on customer reviews and I do not want to mislead anyone.

I see reviews about reactions to plants so like all products if you have any allergies, always read the ingredients before using and if unsure then test on your hand before applying to your face.
I have sensitive skin, dry skin, psoriasis, and eczema. By sensitive skin I mean fragrance, any drying agent, and there's also certain percentages of specific ingredients that upset my skin.
This however is a fantastic cleanser that gets the job done without having to rush to get toner on your face before it tightens up from being stripped. I discovered Korean skin care a few years ago after regularly going to a dermatologist and esthetician to try and balance medical and holistic treatments. I found Peach & Lily a year ago and it's the only brand I've ever endorsed fully and that's not an exaggeration. There's products I like from other brands but never their whole entire collection.
The texture is great, and it's potent so you old have to use a little. I wash my face everyday and it lasted 9 months. My boyfriend has oily skin and uses it with the same success!
I really wanted to love this
Bree from MS
I really wanted to love this, but I found that it made my already dry skin even drier. I'm not sure if I'm allergic to an ingredient or what. Just an overview I have red sensitive dry skin. I'm sure this would be great for someone that doesn't have very dry skin. I really hate it didn't work for me.
Would But It Again
Veve from Minneapolis
I keep it in the shower to cleanse my face each morning, my skin feels clean but soft, not stripped of moisture.
I like it
Customer from Chicago
Love the texture and how smooth and soft it makes my skin feel after. But the smell is so weird and a bit too much so I don't know if I would repurchase 🤔
Caution for the Super Sensitive
mychellemybella from Florida
I was really hopeful this would be a good match for me. I stay up to date on product ingredients, so when I learned my go to face wash had increased on the ThinkDirty app, I sought this out because Namvo highly recommended it. I gave it a few days and my skin started to cover in that itchy layer, and a few more days I started breaking out in cysts all over. I am the smaller percentage of the super sensitive skin type! This is a great product even if it isn't for me. The dime size recommendation for cleansing is accurate, and the lovely light foaming you create before application feels really silky. My skin was indeed clean. The packaging is beautiful and the scent is light and appealing. Again, not for us super sensitive but for the rest of you, give it a go.
Clearest Skin Ever!
Ellen from Minneapolis, MN
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this cleanser. I bought it on a whim and after going through a container of it it's found a spot in my permanent routine. It works well for my oily and cystic acne-prone skin but I think it would work for dry skin as well since it is gentle. I double cleanse with it to remove makeup and SPF at night. After using this cleanser for a few months, I have the clearest skin of my life! Effective yet gentle. Some people have complained it doesn't "lather", however, that just means it doesn't strip your face of moisture.
Good but not impressive
Makeup by hrndz from New York , NY
I like the cleanser it makes my skin feel fresh, smooth and clean which is all we ask for in a cleanser but is worth the price? I don't think so. There's so many affordable brands with the same benefits as this one.
ABH 2 from Nashville, TN
If you have ANY allergies to plants, DOUBLE CHECK the ingredients before you try this! I so desperately wanted this cleanser to work, because it sounded too good to be true. However after I wound up with multiple red, angry, flaky, inflamed cysts on my face, I double checked the ingredients. Chamomile was the offending ingredient, which I didn't realize was a member of the daisy family. Now I have to try to get my skin to recover from this.
holy grail cleanser!
Kat from Saint Louis, MO
Before this cleanser I was using La Roche-Posay's hydrating cleanser for dry skin which I LOVED and used for months, but I started to get maskne and need to switch things up.
Just me from Dallas, TX
My normal cleanser has been discontinued and I lamented having to find something new. This is actually even better!! Scent is subtle, but nice. You need just a pea size amount and it's gentle and perfect. I have normal to dry skin, am In my 40s, and still struggling with acne - this cleanser has been wonderful so far!
so far, i like it
gabs from WI
i bought this product because i love their serum. i struggle with acne and even cystic acne. i was using the Neutrogena grapefruit wash and it was becoming too harsh and drying. so i thought i would try this cleanser instead. it's been about two weeks and it leaves my skin feeling really nice, and it hasn't made me breakout and it seems to be helping with the acne. it smells great and you definitely don't need a lot of it. would recommend!
Love this cleanser
Kat from Florida
I really like this cleanser. I have purchased this multiple times. Right now I use it as a second cleanser at night after my balm cleanser, and I can really feel that it is getting the rest of the balm and removing any make up and sunscreen that may have been missed. It doesn't dry my face out at all, but still feels very clean and soft. I have used this as my morning cleanser in the past and it's perfect for that as well. When I am in a hurry or don't want to double cleanse this is always the cleanser I reach for.
Marissam from Wisconsin
This made my skin feel dry. Also didn't lather well and didn't have a nice scent. I like other products from this brand though.
so calming and nice
alex< 33 from ca
my old cleanser was pretty stripping and drying. i got a sample size of this in a value set, expecting never to use it. i had blackheads and pores pretty visible that day, and wasn't expecting much. i washed, it was pretty smoothing and felt nice rather than like it was stripping, i thought it was nice (it has a tea like scent which i personally dont love but everyone else in my house loves it). i looked up after cleansing and my blackheads were nowhere to be seen! i immediately bought the full size. it doesnt strip or dry my skin and leaves it feeling nice and soft. my skin started purging after i started using it regularly, and now that its done purging it feels so smooth and healthy (not squeaky clean, which would be bad!!). just a healthy non-clogged feel. my blackheads arent as obviously visible and my skin feels bouncy in texture again, and with a niacinamide serum my skins been feeling really great lately. im really glad i found this and was able to get it on sale, i just wish it was cheaper (but for what i got i think its worth it!!)
You need this!
Jordan from Clarksville
Seriously this is amazing! My skin is dry, red, and sensitive. It has completely changed my skin. It's less red and more hydrated.
Did not work for my oily skin
Cherese from Chicago, IL
I love the Peach & Lily essence and decided to splurge and get a lot of products from the line. I used the cleanser a few times but did not like how it made my skin look. My pores looked clogged and my skin didn't feel too clean. Overall, it just didn't work for me so I just returned the product but not a big deal. Still looking forward to using other Peach & Lily products!
alex< 3 from ca
this stuff is so good. im low on another cleanser thats pretty drying and was planning on buying another cleanser. but then i got the value set from peach&lily, thinking that i wouldnt use the mini cleanser. i tried it one day, my pores looked pretty big and with visible blackheads on my nose. i washed, it felt really smooth and not stripping, then i look up and my pores arent as visible and my blackheads are GONE. obviously it didnt make my skin perfect immediately, but im here to buy the full size after one use. my only problem is the scent, im not a fan of scents like this but that doesnt mean other people wont like it. im so glad i got to try this!!
My new favorite cleanser
Sara Christine from Orlando
I got this originally in a boxy charm box and it is the only cleanser that I have ever planned on purchasing again from a subscription. I have been really happy with my cleanser that I used previously which was the hydrating cleanser from CeraVe. It felt good enough. After using this product I love my cleanser now. The first time I used it I really loved how silky and smooth the product goes on. It does get a little milky when I rinse it off which takes a bit to rinse off. My skin didn't break out after switching to this and I have noticed my pores look so invisible immediately after cleansing. I use this also as a double cleanser on days that I wear make up. I will use my Banila Clean It Zero to remove makeup and cleanse after with this. Absolutely no problems, it doesn't over dry out my face. One thing to know though it still gives too much product it gets so slippery and it's such a mess to rinse off. I will say that I have normal to combination skin, But being indoors all the time it is a little dryer so I like to have the hydration products. I'd recommend this for someone who want something gentle and not stripping.
Joshy from New Orleans
Face did not really feel clean after using. Gel turns into a lotion-like consistency not soapy. Would not recommend.
Will not disappoint!
Abby from Illinois
I've been wanting to try out this brand for a while since I heard such good things about it. I use this cleanser every other morning and my skin has felt more soft, hydrated and healthy. Every time I start having dark blemishes on my face it has helped clear them out within a few days! I would repurchase this again in the future. I also combine this with their matcha pudding antioxidant cream and these two together work wonders!
Power calm hydrating cleaner
Tracy from Serville, Tn.
It makes my face feel clean and fresh.
This brought life back to my skin!
Love this! from Seattle, wa
I am a sufferer of acne ever since my teenage years. I've used every type of acne medicated cleansers, serums, moisturizers. I even used Acutane because my skin was so bad. In adulthood, my skin has evened out a bit more, and I still have minor breakouts as we all do. But my skin has become dry and very oily. Redness and itchy over time. I've tried everything to bring my skins natural barrier back to what it used to be after acutane, and frankly, peach & lily has done it! I stopped using my salicylic acid cleanser, and slowly transitioned to this and my skin isn't tight and dry anymore. I've begun using the rest of the line that peach & lily offers and my overall texture has started to change as well!
If you have dry, oily combo skin, specifically oiliness from dryness, try this cleanser out slowly!! And build up! It's pricey but if you can use the rest of the line (glass skin serum, essence, matcha pudding moisturizer) do it. My skin has thanked me for the hydration!
Tulip from Cleveland, Ohio
Power calm hydrating Gel cleanser has wowed me only as it has one of my favorite ingredients- Chamomile. Chamomile is anti-inflammatory & anti-bacterial and helps to calm and refreshes the skin. But was this gel cleanser ahead of other gel cleansers I've used in the past, and would I switch to it to my current one? The answer is big NO.
This face wash is not mild for my sensitive skin. I had lot of skin irritation after using it. The scent of this product is very calming, with subtle notes of peach, lily & lavender. The clear gel formula lathers into a milky foam; I took a dime size as the packaging instructions said. I used it on a dry face, so I had to lather it up by adding water. It was a milky lather, and it was quickly washable means "no residue" left behind.
I've given this product a 2 star. As my skin felt irritable & a little uncomfortable like I need to moisturize it asap after using it. So the "calm" part wasn't that much a success on my skin; my skin felt irritated for a period of time.
*The packaging is eye-catching.
*This product is suitable for all skin types and is said to work well on dull & uneven textured skin. But the major turndown was my skin not enjoying that calmness & refreshing feeling.
Would buy again
Em from Corvallis
I used this product in the morning to wash my face and get my day started and it has just cleared up my acne and has hydrated my face.
Smells nice and hydrates
Becky D from Sherman Oaks, CA
I received this product complimentary for testing purposes. I liked this face wash a lot. It had a light calming scent and didn't make my face feel tight after use. I have eczema and it didn't cause it to flare up. It wasnt clear if this was safe to use around eyes so I avoided that but would like something that I can use to wash my eyelids and around my eyes.
