    Gentle and effective

    I first received this product as a free sample, purchased a full size bottle and have been using it for about two months. My skin is combination, acne-prone (closed comedones are my main concern, some cystic acne) and tends to throw acne and flaking fits in cold weather or dry conditions. This cleanser is gentle enough for the drier areas of my face, but effective at removing oil, dirt and most ma...read morekeup. The bottle has a nice cap for dispensing a controlled amount of cleanser, and you only need an amount the size of a pea to wash face and neck. I sometimes go as extravagant as a dime-sized dollop when removing makeup, or double-cleanse beginning with Cerave's foaming facial cleanser and following up with this and follow with a toner (whatever is around, usually). The cleanser is a creamy gel that smells fresh and a bit fruity. You can glide it on to a wet face or smooth it over dry skin, which I feel works a little better at giving me a "glow" but is harder to manage. I work it in a little with my fingers and leave the thin layer of cleanser on my face for a minute or two, then I rinse with warm water and gently wipe with a wet washcloth. I've also used this with a facial brush. It's a bit strange having no lather, but my face does get very clean. Over time this product has smoothed out the bumpy texture of the skin on my forehead a bit, and I'm having success using it as part of an acne-prevention regimen. If your skin is very dry you might prefer a cleansing milk instead, and if your skin is very oily or you have lots of blackheads you might prefer MB's acne facial cleanser, which has salicylic acid. But for normal skin or combination skin with acne that isn't very severe, this is a nice choice that won't strip your face. — 9 months, 3 weeks ago

    Some pretty good stuff!

    While ordering some other items from Mario Badescu, I noticed I need a few more dollars to get that "spend $50s and get FREE shipping" and totally fell for it. After searching around the website for something I know for sure I would use, I choose this. Well all I gotta say is it is worth the $. I had a full face of make up on and it took all of it off...with the exception of mascara, but really ...read moreI think that eye make up remover really only does the job! Anyway, this is definitely a keeper in my medicine cabinet now. — 1 year, 2 months ago

    Makeup Still There

    My skin feels good after cleansing. Unfortunately, a lot of the makeup (mineral powders, and long wearing foundation) is still on my skin after 2 sweeps from a reliable exfoliating/rinsing toner. I still use it as a morning cleanser. — 1 year, 7 months ago
