  • "I have used this cleanser before, and it feels amazing on your skin, without it being to harsh! It works great for people with sensitive skin, and it definitely wakes you up as well!" in 139 reviews

This facial cleanser is one of the best products that a woman can use to take care of her skin, because it deeply cleans the impurities that attract our skin that this can happen due to the amount of makeup used, because of the natural oil that our skin possesses, which can increase if you do not have the proper care so I recommend this product, it is of excellent quality and there is one for the day that is responsible for removing impurities and grease from our skin and one for the night that allows us to sleep peacefully knowing that our skin will be soft, free of fat, clean and 100% clean.

This is hands down my least favorite Clean n Clear product. This essentials foaming face cleanser is a pretty orange color. It smells awful like baby oil mixed with cleaner. The consistency is runny and it feels similar to washing your face with a slightly foamy oil. (Even though it claims to be oil free). The pump on my bottle didn't even work, so it's not very durable. When washing with this cleanser it was stinging and irritating my face more than it was cleaning it. I don't like how it made my skin feel after washing either. It justnmade my skin look dull and dry, and it made it feel tight in a weird way. I wouldn't recommend this product, I think it's cheap because it sucks.

After struggling with acne through college and for many years after, this was the facial cleanser that finally helped me out. To be fair, it DOES really dry out the face, but I use witch hazel as my toner right after and the two work really well. Sometimes I'll put a pump of this on a face exfoliater pad and it feels AMAZING. Especially after the gym when I want to get any remaining sweat and gunk off my face. I will probably be using this cleanser for a VERY long time!

I'm not 100% sure whether this product is working for me? I used it on a daily basis and I don't see any improvements. I'm still breaking out the same as I was before but I'm not sure whether it is just the cleanser because I bought this product in the 1-3 steps bundle. At this point I've used the entire bottle because I have had it for a while and I never saw anything special. Not sure whether I would buy another bottle.

THE WORST. I typically don’t use drugstore cleansers, but the other day I had left my usual morning cleanser at a friend’s house and had no other option. This is the most drying, over-stripping face wash I’ve ever come in contact with. I got out of the shower and my face felt tighter and dryer than it ever had before. It was horrible. I can’t believe people use this on their faces.

This product is so drying. If you have really oily skin then this is the product for you.. if you have dry skin avoid this product because with in 2 uses my skin dried and I had flaking.. I only use it when I am having a break out and I need it to stop. I act love it but not for everyday use

This is one of my favorite drug store cleansers. Most cleansers dry my skin out and leave it feeling tight. I really like this because it helps remove make up and keeps my face feeling clean and looking fresh, without drying it out at all. When I’m tight in money and can’t afford my normal, pricier cleanser, this is usually what you can find in my shower.

Love this product. I use it every night in the shower. I love how it doesn't have the scrubby beads, it foams up extremely nice and my face feels so fresh and clean after use. This facial cleanser is also very good at removing makeup and a little squirt goes a long way. This is a great cheap facial cleanser that works well and wont dry out your face.

This product has nice packaging, simple and sleek. The foam could be foamier but it does not disappoint. It doesnot dry out my face while it cleanses thoroughly and removes makeup and dirt and oils from throughout the day. It helps keep my acne down which is a plus.

I use this face wash twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. It lathers nicely and you only need a little bit. It removes all of my makeup (besides eye makeup) and doesn’t dry out my skin. I have skin on the sensitive side and this product doesn’t bother me at all! I would definitely recommend, and the price is reasonable.
