Love this future youth foaming cleansing gel! It feels so nice on the skin and leaves my skin feeling clean, moisturized, and plump. This does not leave your skin feeling dried out or tight at all. Although it does not foam, that doesn't matter to me because that's not what makes a cleanser great. I use this cleanser in the morning along with the rest of the future youth line, and I use the collagen line at night. I absolutely love the future youth products. I love love love the smell of this, and the way my skin looks, I have a youthful glow to my skin again. Pacifica's packaging is the best. I love that they use glass and not plastic and the colors and designs on the packing is beautiful. I am especially loving the light, pretty gradient look to the future youth packaging. Please don't change a thing about your packaging. Part of what makes me buy a beauty product aside from looking for great cruelty free ingredients is how pretty the packaging is. If Pacifica comes out with more products to this future youth line I would definitely purchase.
I enjoy Pacifica products but this was not it. The packaging is beautiful, the glass bottle feels lux but the content was disappointing.
I dont mind that it doesn't foam (because lather doesn't necessarily mean it has the capability to clean) but i do find it misleading if it is stated on the bottle, it should do what it advertises "Foaming Cleansing Gel". It feels like it gently cleanses the skin during sunscreen only days but you'll need to double cleanse with an oil or a balm to feel clean on foundation days.
My biggest con about this product is the offputting scent — it smells like an artificial candy, like smarties with a hint of yogurt, which especially deters me to use it the morning during my heightened sense of smell. I prefer Pacifica's "Wake Up Beautiful" cleanser or better yet the discontinued "Coconut Cream To Foam Daily Face Wash & Cleanser". I'm glad i purchased this during a sale with a coupon so the inability to finish is not much loss. Not that the Yuka app gas much weight, but this did score poorly at 47/100.
I opted for COSRX "Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser" instead.

The cleansing gel has an amazing smell and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I have a lot of allergies, and this product doesn't make my eyes watery. I still prefer Pacifica's Vegan Ceramide Facewash. It's so gentle on my skin and doesn't leave it dry after showering or just washing my face.

This cleanser is like a very diluted oil balm and it does not foam. However, I still like it because it removes my foundation, the scent is light, cruelty free and it comes in an eco friendly glass bottle. I cam see this cleanser not being ideal for those who wear heavy makeup. But for my needs it works I'll definitely buy this again.

I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review. I enjoy it, it feels nice on the skin and isn't overly drying. I do think my skin feels softer afterwards. It has a strong scent, which you may or may not enjoy -- I don't really like it, but it's not so bad as to be a problem. Overall a perfectly good product if you're interested in getting it.

I usually enjoy Pacifica products but this was not for me. The packaging is pretty, the bottle feels lux but the content is disappointing.
It states that it's a foaming cleansing gel but misleads because it fails to do that. I don't mind because lather does not necessarily affect ability to clean. This product is a gentle cleanser, so it works on minimal products on skin eg sunscreen only days. But during foundation days, it is best to double cleanse with oil or balm.
My biggest con with this product is its scent — artificial candy like smarties, with a slight hint of yogurt. Tried this product for a month, in the mornings, hoping for scent desensitization, but the scent is still offputting.
Not that the Yuka App has much influence but this did score poorly at 47/100
I prefer Pacifica's "Wake Up Beautiful Dream Jelly Face Wash" (which Ulta does not sell) or better yet, the discontinued "Pacifica Beauty, Coconut Cream To Foam Daily Face Wash & Cleanser".
I opted for COSRX "Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser" instead.
Jamie from FL
I got this a month ago and I think I love it more than any other Pacifica face wash. I've noticed my skin is less oily since using this, and every time I wash my face this product leaves it feeling clean and smooth. I like the scent, too. Will DEFINITELY be getting this again.
Allie from USA
Received this product as a promotional gift, and boy am I glad I did! I have been eyeing up this product for a while now, as I am always interested in finding new ways to protect and hydrate my skin. This product is gentle, lightweight, non-stripping yet doesn't clog your pores. Its the perfect amount of hydration and cleanliness you need. The smell of the product is also heavenly.
Other products I use so that you may judge how well it will work with your skin type:
-vegan ceramide cleanser, serum, & moisturizer
-dreamy youth super peptide cream
-vegan collagen serum & under eye treatment
-Sea & C cleanser & serum

The texture of the product is very nice; moisturizing and smooth. In terms of efficacy, how would I know? It doesn't make me feel or look any different than what I have been using for years. Pricey, but it is supposedly vegan so, there's that.

I enjoy using this face wash in the mornings. The smell is great and feels clean.

It has a pleasant smell and softness to it, but it doesn't foam or remove makeup or anything really. I use this for mornings now since there isn't much to wash. I love the Pacifico sea foam complete face wash and use that before bed. I think i will just stick to that instead.
Molly from Chicago, IL
Packaging is gorgeous but what's inside doesn't work for me. Believe the other reviews - NO foaming, doesn't remove makeup and when used after a cleansing balm (I use Clean it Zero), does not effectively remove the residue from the balm. I had to go back in with what was left of my last cleanser to get my face clean! And I am not the type to want "squeaky clean", I just want my face to not feel like I still have to wash it again. I may dump out the contents and fill with a different cleanser just so I can keep the pretty bottle on my counter, that's about all this is good for. I am enjoying the Future Youth serum, but so disappointed in this cleanser.
desi from Boston, MA
I was so excited to try out a new cleanser, and while I loved the way it made my skin feel, the strawberry fragrance is unfortunately much stronger than most Pacifica products I've used before and not my favorite. I'll probably continue using it occasionally, but doubt I'd purchase again
Kristi from Calais, Maine
Love! It makes my face so smooth, and i love the scent
Arden from New Hampshire
I enjoyed this face wash alot. Very refreshing feeling with a light soothing scent. It has a brightening effect on my skin. And I was really impressed with how soft it made my skin feel afterwards. I am going to continue using this face wash.
Jessi from Pittsburgh, PA
It doesn't foam like the name suggests, nor does it lather into a foam. It does not remove makeup. On no-makeup days, it won't work through my layer of sunscreen or clean off the natural oil on my skin. It leaves a waxy feeling behind. The smell is pretty, but very strong. I would not buy this again, and I would not recommend it to a friend.
from los angeles, ca
doesnt lather up foamy like i would have liked it to and it makes my skin feel weird when i rinse it off, its not a face wash i would buy again and i wish pacifica wouldnt have discontinued the coconut milk to foam wash it was the best one for my skin
Rebekah from Kissimmee, FL
I have been using this cleanser for about two weeks now, my skin feels so soft and clean. The only reason I give a 4 is due to the weird smell.
Dannie from Florida
There's barely any foam/subs but it's work well with a toner
MellyMel from Memphis, TN
This smells so nice, light and natural. I have combination skin and live in a very hot, humid climate. It removes oil and makeup from my face and the lather is light so it does not make bubbles go up your nose.

Love it. Great smell leaves skin soft and refreshed
Kali from Westchester, NY
This product does not get foamy/lather, BUT it feels like I'm getting a really deep cleanse when I use it. My skin feels softer, looks brighter, and has an overall refreshing feeling. I only use one pump per cleanse, both morning and at night. I recommend this product and am looking forward to buying it again and exploring the rest of the line.
claire from los angeles
the bottle is so beautiful that i feel comfortable leaving it out on the counter! i love that it's glass too. the cleanser doesn't actually foam but i'm so glad it doesn't! it feels more luxurious this way, i don't need my cleanser to be like my tweenage ones that have huge bubbles to make it seem like it cleans more. this does a fantastic job of leaving my skin super clean but not tight!!! just as others have said, it doesn't leave it squeaky which means all the essentials have been stripped. it smells heavenly and i'm sooo happy that i got this. it feels like a proper expensive luxury cleanser but doesn't break the bank.

Wonderful cleanser for my Dry/Combo skin girlies! Refreshing and doesn't make my face feel dry after.
