This could not be a more perfect gel cleanser. It truly deep cleans while leaving my skin silky smooth. This product is incredibly refreshing. It did not leave my skin feeling tight or greasy, but rather clean and glowing. My pores appear smaller and my skin feels firm and soft.
This product is made for those with normal to combination skin types. It will ensure that your pores do not feel clogged up or oily.

I’m new to enzyme cleansers. I have nothing to compare it to although I’ve been looking around for one as I’m not as young as I once was. It tingles a little bit, but feels great! It has a great scent. Soft, but distinct. It goes on easily and doesn’t dry out my skin. I had my partner try it out, too — she has sensitive skin just like me — and she loves it, too!

I started using this product in conjunction with the Gylcolic Acid Toner and Cleansing Milk. These three products make a great toner, cleanser, and moisturizer set for your skin. I use the cleansing milk on busy nights, but this daily gel-like lotion makes a great alternative. It is made with rosewater and draws moisture to your skin before you rinse it off. It does not make bubbles, but rinses off smoothly.

I love this! Super lightweight, smells amazing, and feels great on the skin. It does not lather up as it is a gel consistency, but I prefer that.
I love this stuff. It’s so lightweight — I hate when my morning shave leaves my legs feeling too heavy to hike in. Yet, it also doesn’t foam up much, like a gel, so it’s more comfortable for my sensitive skin.

This is the best face wash for oily skin I ever used. It keeps my acne and pimples away like no other. I tried out many products, but they just left my skin drier. This one cleanses my skin without leaving it tight. If acne is what you want to fight off, this face wash will deliver!

I love MB and use a ton of their products! I often alternate between this cleanser and others. I like that it feels good on my skin and doesn’t dry me out. It also seems to be helping with blackheads on my nose. Good stuff!

I’m absolutely loving this. The set I got it in came with everything you’ll need. I found myself needing a dime sized amount (or less) of this product per use. It smells great, and the natural dewy vibes will thoroughly delight you. Would definitely buy again !!!

This unique gel cleanser is unlike anything I have used before. It has a low-foaming, no-suds formula and leaves my skin feeling soft and glowing. It is made with soothing botanicals perfect for sensitive combination skin like mine, but just be aware that it won’t lather or foam like some cleansing gels do. The fragrance is fresh and subtle, and it feels great going on.

This is the ultimate truth for me. I have very sensitive oily skin and used to have blackheads all the time. I started using this face wash and moisturizer from Clinique and my face has never looked better. My skin is so soft, smooth and blemish-free. I now know that I’m beautiful . The only way to achieve this look is by using these products religiously. Love them!

I received this product in a set. I love it! It smells fantastic, which I didn’t think was strange compared to any of their other products. It’s very light and didn’t bother my super sensitive skin. Fragranced products tend to bother my skin, but this was a wash-off treatment.

I have very sensitive skin, and when I used this product for the first time, I noticed a severe rash on my chin and around my mouth. I usually use only paraben-free products, and once I looked at the label, I saw that this product contains chemicals that could easily irritate the skin. Therefore, I am returning it immediately as it may cause more damage to my skin.

Using it is great, and it makes a good morning facial cleanser. After cleansing, my skin feels soft and smooth. It has a cool, refreshing smell. When I read reviews that said it may generate hazardous by-products when stored for a long time, I decided to buy the sample size. With 30ml, it can last half a month or so. It’s just one of the best face wash products I’ve tried.

I love this face cleansing gel because it doesn’t make my face dry after use and it has a funny smell.

I was not impressed with this cleanser after using the glycolic version. It smelled nice, but due to its watery consistency I didn’t feel like it really scrubbed away the dirt and grime from my face. After a long day at work, I wanted to be able to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed, and this cleanser just didn’t have that kick that I needed.

Love love love this product! I have dry skin, and my sensitive skin feels like sandpaper after using foamy cleansers that strip my face. This gel cleanser is perfect for me. It does not dry me out. I follow up with the Biotherm micellar solution to remove most of my makeup, and then use this cleanser to remove the rest. My skin is completely clean and bright!

I’ve been using this cleanser every morning for the last month and I saw results after the first wash! It’s a super gentle non-foaming cleanser that claims to gently buff away oil and impurities while papaya and grapefruit extracts brighten. My skin actually glows after cleansing with this! It’s sulfate, phthalate and paraben-free, making it the perfect morning cleanser for my dry sensitive babes! Highly recommend this as a staple on your shelf.
