I have bought Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash in Kiehl's website. This was my first time to purchase this product after the recommendation of my friend. Firstly, I think the product had the well-packaged box to delivery when I received. The first time when I opened it, the smell of calendula attracted me a lot. Before I review the effects of the product, I would like to talk about my own condition of my personal information and skin type.
• Gender: Female
• Age: 22
• Skin type: Combination
• Skin concern: Visible pores
I was looking for something that would balance my skin and not dry so that I have tried several cleaners, but did not find it yet until now. According to my own condition, I love this cleanser after I used it. It did a good job of balancing. The description said that the cleanser would fit the normal to oilskin type and make skin loos instantly refreshed and revitalized. I really think the product did well on that. It removes my make up really well and leaves my skin feeling very clean and not dry. Within the first week of use, my existing blemishes had begun to clear up and lighten and to my surprise, I have no new acne. Now, after couple weeks of use, my skin condition seems better than before. I have bought 250ml, the one you can use for 2 years from the time you open it, but, I used the product everyday; I think it can be used for almost three months, and I will rebuy it later to keeping using that. I think I would be a big fan of Kiehl's product and willing to trying other product related to my skin type.
Also. The design of bottles can be used convenient and controlled the usage each time. I agree with the effects on my skin based on what the product descripted. I am satisfied with the product, which is worth my money. If I have a friend with same skin condition with me, I will recommend the product to them.
This is my 100% honest review of this face wash.
I went to purchase from Kiehl's for the first time. I wanted a moisturizer. My skin is mostly oily, but I was experiencing some dry patches on my cheeks because of winter. I expressed this to the saleswoman. I was given three samples of different lotions that were way too greasy for my skin type (maybe they will work for another skin type, such as facial eczema).
I knew I also needed a facial wash. The associate told me it would be perfect for my skin. I did not receive a sample but trusted the expert in her chic lab coat. I love that touch to the store!
I purchased this wash and it was drying for all parts of my face. My oily T zone was just as dry as the flakey cheeks. Luckily, this product did not add anymore flakiness.. I was hoping for a product that would nourish my skin that I could use daily. This product would probably work well if I had clogged pores from wearing a lot of makeup and not washing the face consistently. I will probably use it once a month when I feel my skin needs to be stripped a bit or in summer.
It had a lot of product in the bottle, but the price and lackluster results did not match up
I do not like this enough to give away as a gift.
I do not recommend for dry skin at all, combination skin or sensitive skin. Maybe someone with acne prone skin would love this. I personally could never use this daily.
I wish I was given samples first so I would want to return. I ended up loving products from another place that gave samples in all products.
I will return to Kiehls's for body lotions and conditioners in the furure

I bought this wash on 11/19 and on 11-28 you are charging me for 16.9 oz more.

It's probably one of my favorite cleansers. It cleanse my skin but does not make my skin dry. However, the pump is SO tight. It slipped away from my wet hand many times. I have to tilt the bottle when pumping otherwise the gel drip on the neck and the bottle. The pump is the only reason stopping me from purchasing.

I got a free sample with the promos and was excited to try this. Application was nice and foam felt like it was cleansing my skin. However after 2nd use it started dry up my skin. By the 3rd day I had scaly and started to break out. Not recommended for sensitive skin.

It's not non-comedogenic. The website did not make that clear at all.

I use the cleaner with its toner. Both are amazing because they actually clean as it's claimed and never dry my skin. I've been using the cleaner for year. I highly recommend this product.

I have been using this cleanser for years and it continues to keep my skin looking clear. I love the smell and it does a great job at removing makeup! It's a little expensive but i can usually get the big bottle to last me an entire year. Highly recommend!!

You can feel clean skin after washing your face, but it will dry your face so bad. I have combination skin and usually i dont feel any dryness, but with this product you will defiantly feel dry skin.

I have been using this for about 2 years and my skin is clear and soft! I have trouble area under my chin due to menopause breakouts and since I've been using this that area looks 1000% better and the trouble spots have faded. I tried other products that were cheaper but they did not work. I stick with this and it works wonders!

Tried the sample this morning, and it was amazing, look now for best size and price.

Love this toner, I actually need to order the bigger size but wanted to try it out first. It's a keeper in my routine, clearing my dark spots leaving my skin very soft and supple!

Your cleanser really does a great job of cleaning deeply without stripping. Definitely a quality face wash and a little goes a long way!

I tried this cleanser on a whim when traveling with someone who had it and it left my skin feeling deeply cleansed and fresh. I'm very picky with cleansers as I have very sensitive skin. I swear my skin has been so much clearer within a few weeks of using this cleanser. I think the main reason is because it really takes off all of your makeup without drying the skin. This is a new staple in my skincare routine!

I really like this moisturizer. It does leave your skin feeling clean and hydrated. It helps that it also smells good.

The Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash is a soothing and effective cleanser. It removes dirt and impurities without drying out the skin. The formula is gentle and suitable for all skin types. It helps minimize pores and leaves the skin feeling refreshed. The packaging and price could be improved, but overall, it is a reliable choice for clean and balanced skin.

I first used Kiehl's Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash when my skin got heavy breakouts, and my friend recommended this to me. It was my skin savior because it was very gentle on my sensitive skin back then, helped cleanse it, nurture it, not causing any further damage at the same time. That why I have been using it since then, even now when my skin gets much better. Overall, it is a good product for your skin with very light scent. I have been recommending this to so many friends and families.

I have used this face wash for a month. It gently clean and nourish my face. The ingredient contains glycerin that help the moisture barrier for softer-feeling skin. However, i feel like my skin not clean enough after being washed, skin is sticky and feel like a little bit oily. Also, the scent is like glue. For me, fragrance free is better than that kind of scent.
Jarrod from Portland, OR
This face wash is long-lasting and perfect for my skin. Strong enough to really clean but gentle enough not to dry me out.

I discovered this cleanser in 2019 and I remembered that this cleanser basically changed my skin although it was not perfect or near perfect but the difference was huge. But I think when 2020/2021 came I suddenly wanted to try new cleansers, new skincare etc. so again, my skin got messy and I was back to 0. I purchased a new bottle earlier this year but I used the cleanser for a few weeks only bc again, tried new skincare because I have to tackle a lot of problems and not only acne. Now, I might have hormonal acne and it explains why no matter my skincare it wasn't helping my acne and I was so frustrated. Almost a week ago, I saw my calendula cleanser just lying around my bathroom and it got me thinking, should I go back to this cleanser? It might help my acne even just a little bit so I'm now using it again and Just like how much I loved this product back in 2019, now I got the same reaction from myself because it made so much difference (texture, acne etc). Except for my jawline acne I mean it's helping with the redness but I'm not expecting much bc again, I might have hormonal and I still have to visit the doctor but for my cheeks, forehead acne it's almost gone and i've been using it for almost a week so now I'll have to accept that this cleanser is probably it for me. I have oily, acne-prone/sensitive skin so it's really hard for me to find products that suit me so. I'll just stick to this cleanser because it's really the cleanser for my skin so I hope kiehl's will NEVER change the ingredients.
It makes your skin soft, smooth and feels very clean (but not stripped). It also helped with my scars back in 2019 for now, i'll have to see if it will help with my current ones but its so good.
The only problem though is that the pump is quite short so if you're finishing up the cleanser its hard to get the product out so it's such a hassle. I hope kiehl's can improve the bottle pump & the lid bc this will spill when traveling. Oh, and please don't increase the price too much bc its getting so expensive:( Overall, just a great cleanser (probs miracle in a bottle tbh) so thanks kiehl's < 3
