Most Helpful Positive Review Not one to review products but WOW!
I have struggled with combination for the past 10 years (Oily, Dry, Acne Prone). Thanks, hormones. But this face wash seems to be relieving me of those problems. I genuinely look forward to using this product every day. And I have been using it now for 2 weeks so I feel as though I can leave an informative review. I use this cleanser at night as my "just before bed" facial routine. I first take my mascara off with coconut oil, gently wiping it away. Then I use this cleanser and lightly massage it into my face in small circular motions (while makeup is still on and face is dry). It comes out of it's container like a gel then warms with your skin to feel just like baby oil, delightfully emollient. I then rinse it off with lukewarm water and pat my face dry. My face feels luxuriously happy afterwards. Free of makeup, dirt and pollution. No drying. No tight feeling. It just feels healthy. In the morning, I do not re-cleanse my face but with hot water from the shower. Afterwards, I use Thatcher's Witch Hazel w/ Cucumber - let it air dry - apply my primer and a light "work day" face of makeup - then off I go. My facial texture, tone and problematic acne and dry skin has been remedied ten fold with this routine. My make up sits better on my skin and I genuinely feel like my skin is finally beginning to agree with me again. **It does well removing a full face of heavy weekend makeup as well**
Most Helpful Critical Review I really wanted to like it...
I really wanted to like this... I was looking for an inexpensive replacement for my professional skin cleanser that I can no longer afford. I am 29 years old and have started to experience skin changes as I inch closer to 30. My formerly dry skin is now combination. I suffer from an oily t zone, dry cheeks and hormonal breakouts. This cleanser was way too drying for me and did nothing for the oil on my tzone. I actually feel more shiny after using it. Maybe it will work for you but unfortunately did nothing for me.

Bought this on recommendation of in store sales person. I was actually considering a Clinique cleanser when she suggested this as a less harsh and cheaper alternative. First, did not realize you are suppose to use on dry skin which really doesn't work for me since I would want to use in the shower with my Clarisonic. But above all the fragrance is very strong and can't be good for the skin. Didn't seem to clean very well after a day of makeup and environment exposure on my oily skin. Not for me.

For my skin, this face wash performs ok. It is a very gentle cleanser, but I don't feel like it fully cleans my face. My face still feels like it hasn't washed everything off. I use this as a cleanser that I switch off with. The scent is not overpowering. The face wash has an inconsistent texture, some of it is smooth, and some is chunky when I dispense it onto my hand. I'm not sure if this is due to the temperature during shipping.
I would buy this again

Love that it's a gel. Makes it so easy to apply.
Too much fragrance
Nope22 from Denver, CO
I haven't used the product for very long but don't expect to see improvements to my skin. This has way too much fragrance.
Bea from SD
No. 3/10. Smells just like the balm. #overpowering
It doesn't feel as heavy as the balm but it's just not amazing. Don't.get. It.
Came back for more!

LISTEN, I don't write a lot of reviews - but this stuff deserves it. I used to suffer a lot with acne, my skin always seemed dry and the flaking skin would cake up and clog my pores no matter how much I exfoliated. I ended up realizing that I cannot use foaming facial cleansers, which really limited my options. Stumbled across this stuff last year and y'all, I'm 33 years old and I've finally found THE ONE 😍 I honestly use Mario Badescu for pretty much every other product, but keep coming back for this No 7 melting gel cleanser! Keeps my skin hydrated, and doesn't make red or cause me to break out. I use on a silicone cleansing pad, between micellar water and toner and my skin is perfectly clean without feeling stripped. Just buy this!
buy this its great

This product is absolutely amazing for oily and very sensitive skin
LOVE THIS FACE WASH!
Jenn from New Jersey
I use this to wash my face every night. It is effective, hydrating and never breaks me out. I have the best skin when I use this product in my routine
Great for sensitive and dry skin, I now use it daily!!
Ty from Alabama
I have really really sensitive skin and I break out in a dry rash a lot on my face. It has been hard to find cleansers that aren't too drying and that are very gentle. I am so happy I discovered this cleanser!! It is the best one I have ever used. At first I was a little worried that the grape seed oil would irritate my skin but it didn't. I use the recommended method of putting it on a dry face, then rinsing with warm water. My skin has never been softer and more clear. I 10/10 would recommend this. The price point is also amazing!!
I would buy this again
Cat from Pinole,Ca
A nice face wash. Light and creamy. Great for sensitive skin like mine.
great for my extra sensitive skin!
Mo from New York
I've tried lots of cleansers over the years and nearly all of them made my skin either burn, really dry, or they feel good but caused breakouts. My skin is very very sensitive. I used the whole tube of this and even at the beginning I did not have breakouts. My skin is completely clear. It is not drying but I still use a moisturizer after. I wish I tried this product a long time ago! This is the perfect cleanser for me!
Melting Gel Cleanser!
I love makeup 63 from Hazlet, NJ
I purchased this to replace my loved Clinique Take the Day Off. I am trying to save money because of the situation right now with the pandemic. This is my first step in a double cleanse. This removes makeup, especially mascara, rather well. Not as good as the Clinique balm. The only problem really is that it is scented.
Pleasant smelling cleanser
Sandy from Venice, Florida
I like the tube, easy to keep in the shower, nice smell and not foamy! I use many of the No 7 products....this is the first time I tried this cleanser, will buy again.
Great cruelty-free product!
Hummingbird44 from Lakewood, CO
I use this product primarily at nighttime to wash my face of any makeup I may have used that day. Also, it is gentle & effective to remove any impurities & leave my face clean & nice-smelling! It is cruelty-free, like the other No. 7 products I use, & I appreciate them all.
Mimi from Pittsburgh
I use to clean my face every night and in the morning. I love that it doesn't leave my face dry.
It's ok not the worst thing it cleans my makeup brushes
Rae from Oak Park mi
Would not purchase again .its a great brush cleaner
Smells great & easy to usr
Alicia from Jonesboro,AR
I use this before I get into the shower & at bedtime. This is to be applied to dry skin goes on super easy & has a wonderful scent. It's more like an oil than a cleanser in my opinion because there is no grit or suds when applying.
I love this cleanser!
Kimberly O from NW Minnesota
I love this cleanser! It removes my mascara and other makeup. I rub it onto my dry face. After it is all rubbed in, I rinse my face with warm water. The oil emulsifies and rinses off. My face is left perfectly clean and lightly moisturized. After I pat dry, I continue on with my No7 Lift & Luminate products. I only use the cleanser at night.
Side note: I do not have oily skin. I think that people with oily skin might not care for this. I could be wrong. I'm not sure how well this would work on oily skin. Then again, there's that really expensive brand that has an oil cleanser and they say "Oil attracts oil." I don't know if that's true or not.

Works ok, has a very strong smell
JasMom from Tallahassee FL
Works good but No7 Beautiful Skin Age Defence Cleanser is better for dry skin. Although this cleans good and doesn't dry your skin, it doesn't seem to moisturize as good as No7 Beautiful Skin Age Defence Cleanser.
Have repurchased multiple times
Lana from Minneapolis, MN
This is the only cleanser I've bought multiple of. This is a great hydrating cleanser for winter as it doesn't dry out your skin - most times I don't feel the need to put on moisturizer immediately after using it because my skin doesn't feel tight and dry the way some cleansers make it feel. Will continue to buy this again and again!
I would definitely buy this product again!!
Emm from Houston
My face is usually dry, i was told to stop using clean and clear and nutragena products due to them having to much alcohol which it messed up your face and to switch this product ever since my face been really smooth!!
Cathy from Eugene, or
Compared to Take Off the Day by clinic, this product is inferior.....but costs MUCH less. I used a cotton ball with some miculear water to take off the residue and m6 face felt clean.
Nicsbuys from Baton Rouge, La
I wanted to love this but the strong fragrance is just too overpowering. Wish it did not have a smell or just a mild fruity smell maybe. This smells like cologne. As far as the cleansing power, it works okay, but I still had some mascara after rinsing. I do love how my face feels afterward and does not seem to dry out my face. I probably will not repurchase though due to the strong smell.
