I really love this new Rare Earth product from Kiehl's. I already use the the Rare Earth deep pore daily cleanser and mask intermittently, so I was a little hesitant on purchasing this. How different could it be, right?!?? Wrong. It's a lot different!!! And surprisingly awesome. It has many strengths as an addition to the product line. I'm not sure what I expected, but it's very smooth and feels almost like a gel cleanser on my face. I thought it might be rough and exfoliating like the daily cleanser, but the texture is nothing like that. It doesn't leave my skin feeling as tight as the other two, so it will be great for daily use. It's fun to use just for how surprising the texture is after mixing with water! It seems to clean pretty well — my face feels squeaky clean after, but it's also NOT drying, which is great. It absorbs oil and makes my face feel like a clean slate in terms of texture. I haven't used it long enough to notice a huge change in my pores, which are naturally large, but all the Rare Earth products make a difference for me, so I'm optimistic. I couldn't do the deep pore products daily, so this was a great find. My face is looking great on day 2! I've had better in terms of cleaning off every last bit of make-up (such as the Calendula foaming wash) but this wash leaves my skin feeling more comfortable. I plan to keep both in my routine, but I think I'll use this everyday, even if as a 2nd cleanse for extra make-up days.
Trying this makes me want to try the Rare Earth toner, but gosh Kiehl's — I love too many products and only have so much money! I hope they'll offer a sample or deluxe sample of the toner one day because if it's on par with the rest of the line, I know I'd love it (and I'm not even a toner girl).
Destroyed my face and skin, I'm in so much pain…..site won't allow me to post photos.

This cleanser does a good job removing the blackheads on my nose. It does an okay job cleaning the oil on my face, but not a great. I sometimes have to use this cleanser twice or a different cleanser just to remove all the oil on my face.

This is my first time using the powder cleanser and it works great especially with the cleansing masque combo

New favorite face wash. Gently exfoliates however much you want based on the water you add. My skin feels clean and not dry, love that I can take it through TSA too!

Interesting idea to have a powder that turns into a scrubby foam but you can't really store it in the shower where I would use it. Also when you add water droplets it sort of poof ups in a little cloud and all over the place, no matter how gentle. But it works really well on shine and makes my skin feel great. I'm guessing the powder form makes it less costly to ship. Also, they need to rethink the bottle to this form factor – come up with something new that let's the powder flow easier.

I started using daily in the shower and from the first use, with very little product, I noticed the immediate removal of excess oils and yuck from the day. Works gently and well. Learned to be careful when opening to not lose product.

Works amazing! The more you use the more exfoliating the cleanser is. You can use a little or a lot depending on if you are looking to cleanse or exfoliate. Love it!

Not what I thought it would be - to effectively use this without making a mess in my bathroom, I can only use it in the shower.

Love this cleanser! No scent. No dry skin after washing! No airline issues!

I love that it's a dry face wash and it cleans so well

Innovative product and more convenient for daily use that the thick mask product available. Easy to apply and easy to use and remove. This is a great product!

Feels good, but I don't know yet if it is a pore minimizer.

Like that it has a small amount of dermabrasion. Skin feels nice afterwards but not tight or dried out. Great new product. Now why is it not on the Friends and Family sale? :(

I am a long-time user of Rare Earth Mask so was THRILLED when I saw this was coming. I love the way my skin looks after using this.
