This is one of my favorite products ever. It not only gives you such a deep clean but it feels so refreshing! And that feeling lasts all day! I find it at Target or online and it’s always at an affordable price.

I loved this for a simple cleanser but it just wasn't my favorite compared to other kinds I've tried from other brands. I liked that it was a more natural botanical and had a pleasant scent but felt that this is an ok, not five star though.

Love this! Makes my skin feel great and hydrated. It’s very gentle on the skin. I would only improve the dryness after using. It’s a good value, not very pricey. Definitely would recommend!

I bought this on a whim but I'm so happy I did. I was a bit hesitant because of it being a gel cleanser as oppose to the normal foaming cleansers I'm used to. But to my surprise this cleans just as well minus all the bubbles. I would definitely recommend and purchase again!

I didn’t really understand this product. It’s supposed to go in your dry face, but felt sticky and strange. Maybe it was more user than product error, but I didn’t care for it too much.

I'd really love to give this product 5 stars but I just couldn't because of the scent. I'll say more on that in a minute, but overall I LOVE this face wash! It goes on so incredibly smooth- I cannot say enough about the texture. It was relatively inexpensive and I love the packaging. My ONLY complaint is the scent. It's not horrible, but to me, it doesn't smell good. It smells like something my grandmother would wear decades ago. (Nothing against my grandma- she's the best) it's just not a scent that I welcome or want to smell like. But everyone is different and someone else may totally disagree! I'd just recommend smelling it before you purchase. But overall- it's a GREAT facewash! I'm really hoping Olay will make the same facewash in different scents!

I've been using this cleanser for about 3 months now and will definitely continue to do so. It is a quality cleanser that removes all of my makeup with ease, even my cat-eye liner. The texture is silky smooth and a little goes a long way, making it an excellent value. The smell is fresh and invigorating, but delicate. It does tingle a little when using it, but not in a burning or irritating way. Finally, it leaves my nearly 40 year old skin feeling better than before use and has improved its appearance over time. Very happy with this product.

I received this product in a previous VoxBox and it was the full sized product. I started breaking out more than usual so I decided to switch cleansers and I now use this product. The formula is great and I haven’t had any problems with breakouts. It leaves my skin feeling clean and soft without drying it out. I use this product 1-2 a day in the shower and it works great! (My skin isn’t very oily and it is not very dry. It’s pretty normal. I only breakout 1-2 times a month. My skin is pretty clear. I generally wash it at night or in the morning or both.)

This product smells good! I usually stay away from scented products because of my sensitive skin but this wasn't too heavy to be over powering. It was a light enough texture so that my skin didn't feel greasy or sticky which is really good considering I have such sensitive skin. It was pretty affordable but I wouldn't keep it in my daily routine.

I purchased this item online because I was in need of a facial cleanser and this had great reviews. I'm glad I made this purchase. It leaves my skin feel fresh, clean and smooth. It hasn't caused any breakouts (which usually new skincare products do) or made my skin more oily or dry. I would definitely recommend trying this product out!
