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 tried everything under the sun. And this is the best for my sensitive skin! Gentle and moisturizing. I will never use another face cleanser again. I also love their other products. Such an amazing brand and not pricey for the high quality.
My Holy Grail Cleanser
Elaine from Chicago
I love this face wash - I will never use anything else. I had been using Cetaphil for years and it was stripping and drying my face so bad. Starting to use this is like night and day, and its comparable in price. The niacinamide helps with my dark spots and it isn't stripping to the skin at all. Perfect for my rosacea-prone skin! Before using this cleanser, I remove my makeup with micellar water. Always double-cleanse!!
Great Basic Gently Cleanser
Manologal from Eagle, ID
This is a great gently cleanser, that is also pretty basic which is a good thing. Sometimes you don't need a fancy cleanser with a bunch of stuff added, and this is perfect for that. It is good for a first cleanse in the morning and a second cleanse at night (if you wear makeup, otherwise just use as your regular cleanser). I have extremely sensitive, reactive, normal/dry skin that is very temperamental and I do not react to this. It is a creamy type cleanser that doesn't make my skin feel tight or over-cleansed after use. It just makes my skin feel clean and fresh. It also doesn't take much product to do it's job. I have been purchasing this for years for both myself and my husband.
Taylor from Nevada
I have dry skin and love a non lathering cleanser. This one does exactly that and it left my face feeling SUPER soft and hydrated. The ingredients are basic which can be actually very good for sensitive and dry skin. I like this one over my Clinique extra mild which shocked me!
I really wanted to love this!
Soph from New York
I wanted to love this product so bad! Unfortunately it broke me out with bumps and caused redness all Over. Needless to say, I am most likely allergic to some ingredient and I'm sure it works for a lot of other people!
Ellie from New York
I personally always believed that lotion like face wash do not clean, but this one did. It cleans my face without drying my skin. It even removes my waterproof mascara and eyeliner effortlessly. I love it. I have sensitive, normal, acne prone skin and since using this face wash my skin has been doing a lot better. my skin is so soft and my acne is gone. I love this product! Recommended to everyone.
Best Cleanser Ever!
Nelster from Dallas, TX
My skin went from normal to extremely dry (flaking, redness, bumps) from maskne. This is so gentle and cleans very well! Does not make my skin feel dry and right after. So glad I found this! Definitely clearing up my skin :)
candyjane from Minnesota
my whole life i have been using the wrong cleansers, because once i started using this, i had less breakouts and my skin has felt never felt this clean. Definitely recommend!!
not actually a cleanser?
toofabulousbev from Spokane
if you look through the ingredients the only non moisturizers seem to be salt and alcohol. what in here actually cleans your skin? this looks more like the 1st step for a double cleanse.
Great hydrating and gentle cleanser
Doll from georgia
First I love this line of products. Every single product I have purchased I have loved and ordered again. This is a very gentle and hydrating cleanser and has no harsh products that could irritate your skin. I have older skin so I needed something that would not dry out my face but do a good job of cleansing. This product checks all the boxes for me.

I have dermatitis and this works great at keeping it at bay. The moisturizer is just the right amount.
My forever face wash!
Jain Deaux from Fort worth, TX
I've battled red dry peeling skin since I've moved to Texas last year. I've started using this cleanser and rosehip seed oil 4 days ago and my skin is almost completely clear, no more peeling, and baby soft all day long. I've no complaints.
Made my skin dry
Marissa from Pennsylvania
I have dry / sensitive skin and this made my skin dry and blotchy immediately after use and I followed directions exactly. I wouldn't use again. I'm surprised this has so many great reviews.
🤍 from OR
This cleanser is great! I use it as my everyday cleanser and it does it's just. I love the ingredients it really does wonders for your skin. I would recommend this 100%, especially to people with sensitive skin!!!
Fav so far.
CD from GA
Came here after using CeraVe SA cleanser.. it was too harsh for my skin, and CV hydrating didn't work for my skin type. This wash seems very cleansing, without overly drying or making tight. Working great for me and my skin is clear and nice again.
Best gentle cleanser ever!
S from Georgia
I use this for a gentle cleanse in the morning and as a second cleanse in the evening. It is beautiful, silky and gentle.
Machri from Bellevue, WA
Not for me. Everyone is racing about this for sensitive, dry skin, but it did not work for me at all: it irritates my skin as soon as it touches it and leaves it super dry and flakey afterwards. It is supposed to not strip your skin but that's exactly what it does. Gave two instead of one stars because it is working very well for my husband, who has dry and oily combination skin, but definitely not for sensitive skin as advertised.
Gentle and Nice
MP from CA
I had tried the CERAVE cleanser bc of Hyram but it wasn't doing anything for me, it just felt like rubbing lotion all over my face but this one makes my skin feel so clean and moisturized after!! I haven't been breaking out as much too
not for my skin
nova from ?
I think this cleanser is too gentle for me. I feel like it doesn't clean my skin enough. since I've been using it I've broken out bad, like freshman in high-school bad. the only time I've had this much acne was when I was 14.
Snesbear from MN
I am 33f and I have dry skin like no other in a dry climate. I don't know what this is. But it's amazing. I tried all sorts of face cleansers. They all left me with dry skin, feeling tight, didn't remove my makeup, or I broke out in acne.
Not this though!!! It does not cause dry spots or acne nor does my skin feel dry with it. It's great and I plan on constantly repurchasing until it's discontinued.
New favorite facial cleanser
anonymous from Nashville, TN
An effective facial cleanser that doesn't dry out my skin. My face feels soft and smooth afterwards. The price is also good and is comparable to other cleansers I've used in the past. I would definitely buy again.
The worst experience!!!
Elle from Texas
As everyone was raving about this cleanser, I decided to try it out but please be aware that after using it only three times I heavily broke out and got tiny bumps everywhere on my skin! This was the absolute worst!!
Kyleigh from CA
Cleansers usually dry my skin out so badly and my skin will feel so tight after cleansing. This doesn't give me that feeling but it still cleanses my skin well! I do usually pre-cleanse with micellar water to remove makeup before using this.
Gave me bumpy skin
Sad from Ohio
My face never breaks out. I used this once and I have small bumps all over my face that got worse after a second use.
Drew from Atlanta, Ga
Its a really good cleanser and the consistency of it is a gel. It doesn't leave my skin feeling like dry out or anything. My skin type now is normal and a little oily in my t-zone.
