Customer Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely face wash with pleasant scent I bought this product about a month ago and so far, so good. I haven’t noticed any specific improvements with it but I started using it along with other Skinceuticals products, so I’m not sure which products have made the difference. In any event, my dry skin is far more moisturizer my skin is generally doing much better. I like the scent of the cleanser (like, not love), though there’s something missing for me, which is why I give it 4 stars. I was using Dermalogica’s Age Smart cleanser previously and although creamy in texture, it went onto the skin like a cleanser, not like a cream; this cleanser is exactly like a cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If I could give it more stars I would. This is now my second bottle of this product and it is amazing. Smells clean and expensive if that makes sense. So refreshing to wash your face with it, and works wonders. I have combination and very sensitive skin and it does not irritate it whah so ever. Leaves my skin feeling very clean and not stripped. Would recommend this product to everyone if I could, the product I cannot live without. Shocked that no one else has reviewed this product, hopefully this helps you decide if this product is worth buying. Cause I’m telling you it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first pump! I’ve been using this lightweight cream cleanser for almost 2 months now and I am in love! One pump is all it takes to cover my entire face and neck. I massage it onto my face and neck using a gentle circular motion, rinse and then pat dry. My skin is either really dry or sometimes a combination depending on the season, so I love that this cleanser provides my skin with a bit of hydration and does not dry out my skin. I really like how it contains orange oil that gives off that citrusy smell, especially because my skin becomes really sensitive to synthetic fragrances, so I love that this is a natural alternative! I’ve also notice that my skin is less congested as I don’t have as many little bumps on my cheeks like when I was using other brands such as Estée Lauder. I don’t normally wear makeup but on the one occasion where I had too, this cleanser did a decent job washing off all of the makeup on my face (I didn’t have makeup remover, so I had to wash my face twice). Lastly, I love that this cleanser does not contain harsh substances such as sulphate, paraben, soap, dye and alcohol. I LOVE it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels and smells lovely and my skin looks good I've been using this once or twice a day for about a month. I have mild adult acne as well as issues with enlarged pores and mild acne scarring. The product smells amazing and feels delightful on the skin, and a bottle lasts a long time as you don't need much. I haven't noticed a huge difference in my skin but it is certainly looking healthy, and clearer than it has in the past. The only thing I would criticise is the fact that it doesn't always remove all of my makeup, and I only wear tinted SPF moisturiser/BB cream. Please note I accidentally uploaded this review to the wrong product recently (the Equalizing Toner) and unfortunately I can't amend it. :-/ However all of this also applies to the toner except the last sentence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle cleanser with great results I normally use a foaming cleanser but decided to try this as my skin was getting a little red in places after I cleansed with another brand. I was sceptical that this could remove make up and sun screen - but it does. I have been used to doing a double cleanse, so decided to use a small amount of this product all over face and then rinse and repeat. My skin feels squeaky clean afterwards, but not at all dried out. I have also noticed the irritated areas seem to be calming down, On top of this the light smell of orange makes it a very pleasant product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product! This is a great product that was first recommended to me by my dermatologist. I used to suffer with very bad acne, however as my skin was very sensitive many of the specific acne products caused my skin to appear very red. This product caused absolutely no irritation, and does not leave the skin feeling tight and dry like some cleansers do. Now after using this product every night and just simply putting the B5 serum on after, my skin has never been better. My skin is now less sensitive, but I still keep this with me wherever I go. I now use a stronger cleanser (Blemish + Age) which does have slightly better results for the acne, however I continue to use this as and when I feel like my skin needs a break.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favourite cleanser! I bought this cleanser after experiencing it during an LED facial at a spa. Initially it was the smell that made me ask what they’d used. It’s a lovely light orange scent and I became convinced I needed this in the lead up to Christmas! I’ve never really experienced cleansers that felt like they did much other than remove makeup.   However with this cleanser I really noticed a difference in my skin. I have combination skin, tight and dry across my cheeks but oily and more acne prone across the forehead.  It’s really gentle on my skin and it doesn’t leave my skin tight afterwards. Because of this I don't end up over moisturising and blocking my pores which is always the trap I fall into! If I’ve had no makeup on or very light then I cleanse with this alone. However if wearing very heavy makeup / waterproof spf then I find I do need to use something beforehand. Either a precleanser or micellar water. My skin is so comfortable and balanced the following morning I often don’t cleanse again which I feel is really improving my skin barrier.
