Origins #1 Checks & Balances Frothy Face Was in a limited edition size and look. A $39 value!
A foaming gel cleanser that targets blemish-causing impurities and balances oil with natural salicylic acid and AHAs for clear, comfortably matte skin.
"I have what I call "fussy" skin -- sometimes oily, sometimes dry, occasionally prone to breakouts. But acne products are too strong/harsh, and "natural" products contain something that irritates me. Drugstore brand cleansers work for a while, and then my face gets fussy again. About two years ago, a few weeks before my wedding, I had a clarifying facial using the Botanical Kinetics products at my salon in hopes of clearing my skin before the big day.I was pleased that my skin did indeed clear up, and this cleanser is the only product I've found that suits my fussy skin. It generally keeps my face clear and feeling healthy. One pump is enough to wash your whole face, so one bottle lasts a long time. This is probably the longest I've used any one product with continuing success.I also use the Botanical Kinetics moisturizer, and I find that to be light enough to keep me from breaking out, but moisturizing enough to do some good in the winter. « less" - aveda user
"I purchased this after this was highly recommended to me by an Esthetician. I have been looking for a gentle cleanser that would not dry out my face and help with my occasional breakouts. I have been using the Special Cleansing Gel for about 6 months and I am extremely happy with this product. I have been trying different cleanser for almost two years before I fell in love with this. My face always feels amazingly clean and soft afterwards. It is great at removing makeup. My Esthetician was right - a little goes a long way. I got the 16.9oz and this will easily last the rest of the year.Dermalogica products have changed my life! Since I started using this cleanser along with the charcoal masque, my skin has never been better! I can't get over, evenly toned, clear and smooth my skin has become since using these products. I have recommended this cleanser to family, friends. « less" - dermalogica.com user
"I nearly lost my mind trying to research skin types and the products I should be using. For years after my acne cleared up, I used body wash to scrub my face and whatever moisturizer the kids had afterward. The kids have grown a bit, I have now started wearing makeup regularly, and Iâ€™m nearing 30 so I figured it was time to get an actual healthy skincare routine down. All those years of abusing my skin led to severely dehydrated, but EXTREMELY oily skin. I decided to try this cleanser, the Hydro Boost Water Gel, and a hyaluronic acid toner from Baby Peach. The improvent in my skin on day one was so drastic that my husband, who didnâ€™t notice the little gap in my teeth for THREE YEARS, remarked on how even and soft my skin was. Itâ€™s been about a week now, and I couldnâ€™t be happier with the products if I tried. My skin feels so soft and smooth itâ€™s unreal, and the softness lasts all day long even in our harsh winter weather and forced heat home. The few small blemishes I did have have cleared up entirely, my pores are no longer visibly clogged despite wearing makeup so much more often, and they truly do appear smaller. And the absolute best part is that my face is NO LONGER OILY. A week ago I would have had a face FULL of shine just a few short hours after cleansing, and now I touch up my makeup with a tiny bit of powder maybe once eight or more hours after application. Iâ€™m so grateful to have found this line, and I absolutely will be repurchasing along with the body balm, sheet masks, exfoliating cleanser, and serum. This removes my makeup so gently and easily (hello, Lash Paradise) with just one cleanse, it feels so good on the skin, the thin lather is perfect, it washes away completely with no residue, and it doesnâ€™t strip a BIT of moisture from my skin so my face feels wonderful even before I moisturize. Also, my makeup has never looked better than it does over this line and my trusty primer. I have had no irritation or redness with these products (and redness was a daily occurence for me). 100 out of 10, Neutrogena! Less" - walmart.com user
"I have sensitive, mature, combo skin and have had a difficult time finding a cleanser that doesn’t leave my skin looking red and feeling irritated. There’s really no scent and it does a great job at cleansing with no trace of make up left behind. I love how it has helped retexture my skin and now it glows! I’ve been using it for over a year now, and will only use it as part of my anti aging skincare regimen!" - dermstore user
Murad's Essential-C Cleanser is a patented antioxidant-rich cleanser that rehydrates environmentally damaged skin.
"I've been seeing more and more products out there toting charcoal as the new "wonder" ingredient but I "wonder" if it's not just a passing fad. I mean, we use charcoal to grill hamburgers in our barbecues and artists use it for drawing portraits. It is also a main ingredient in aquarium filters to remove impurities from the water. But it is also used to remove toxins from the body and is given to overdose patients and to people who have ingested poison (under a doctor's supervision). Therefore, charcoal must be a pretty hardcore ingredient! And it's now popping up in everything from toothpaste to skin care products to dietary supplements, and even drinks! So when I received the opportunity to test out this Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Gel Cleanser in exchange for review, I was very intrigued. The consistency is a thick black gel. You just pump a little in your hands and run it under warm water. It does not contain sulfates, so it does not lather. But it cleans your skin so beautifully without drying. And the best part is how effective it is at removing makeup. You will not have to use a separate makeup remover which saves so much time. It features a gentle, sulfate-free "no tears" formula that does not irritate eyes so you can even take off waterproof mascara without any issues! It has cleared up my blackheads and my skin is looking fantastic. I seriously love this product and I highly recommend it for those of us with oil and acne-prone skin." - ulta user
"I first tried the Olay Pro-X Exfoliating Cleanser when the sample size came with my Olay Cleansing System. I knew after using it for one day that I would need to purchase a bigger bottle, and I did. It is a soft and creamy gel with just enough exfoliating granules to clean my skin without being too rough. My skin feels cleaner and softer and looks brighter. After using it one time I could feel a difference in my skin. My wrinkles and pores are not as visible and my skin looks and feels clean and bright. I started out using it in the A.M. and the P.M., but now I use it in the morning to prepare my skin for makeup. It is well worth the price for great looking skin. " - walmart.com user
"Love this new addition to the Glow Recipe family! It is the only balm I have heard so far that is not formulated with Polyethylene Glycols (PEGs), which is commonly used in cosmetics to give it its thick texture, but unfortunately can cause irritation to the skin and eyes. I’ve had really bad experiences with PEGs, breaking out in red rashes across my face, so I was so happy when they launched this. After first use, my face felt silky smooth and thoroughly cleaned with no greasy film or residue and I was confident enough to open my eyes and was pleasantly surprised there was NO burning feeling! The clean and natural scent allows me to enjoy a nice massage session with this balm, the co-founder Christine suggests using it for Gua Sha as well. It is highly recommended to double cleanse with a water based cleanser after, especially if you wore make up or sunscreen. However, my skin is on the drier side and felt like I didn’t even need to double cleanse since it emulsified so well. I have been recommending this to my friends and they purchased it as well! Glow Recipe nailed the formulation for this balm, so so amazed. 10/10" - sephora user
Wash away makeup, impurities and pore-clogging oil with kate somerville's gentle, sulfate-free face cleanser. Skin is left feeling hydrated, soft and refreshed. Gentle daily wash cleanses and conditions.
"This is a facial cleanser that feels very soft when applying it to your face. It is super gentle and cleans very well. It does not leave residue behind. I use a brush or cloth, create a light lather, and lather away in a circular motion throughout my face. It is like a mini massage for my face. My skin feels soft after washing with this.This cleanser is filled with so much healthy goodness like activated charcoal, marine algae, aloe, and green tea; therefore, it is high in antioxidants, minerals, potassium, and magnesium. All of this is healthy and good for the skin. It helps to nourish and hydrate while fighting off toxins and impurities. It balances your skin's pH, too! That is pretty cool! Many cleansing products that are out on the market are more alkaline, so the skin is not pH balanced. This is a concern for me because this is what contributes to the dehydration of my skin, among other things. This product is balanced; therefore, my skin is balanced.As you can imagine, I will continue using this. I do recommend it. It is a great product overall. For it to be a normal-to-oily skincare product, it works good on dry skin, too. I have combination skin and am prone to breakouts. After using this product for a while now, my skin feels fine! « less" - dermae.com user
"I've tried a variety of cleansers over the years; and I have to say that is cleanser is the best one yet. It's slightly creamy at first when squeezed out of the tube. However, once you rub the cleanser between your hands, it foams up into a nice airy soap. And when you rub it on your face & neck area, it's wonderfully smooth, light, & gentle. After rinsing it thoroughly, your face feels so (squeaky) clean, which is great. My face tends to be a bit on oily side & this cleanser is perfect for cleaning my face thoroughly. Plus it doesn't leave any residue whatsoever. You can use a face towel with this cleanser to clean your face; but honestly it's really not necessary. Just a gently rub with your hands to apply the cleanser, then quick rinse, & that's it. I absolutely love this cleanser! I can't say if it would work well for dryer skin types; but I would definitely recommend it for people with oily skin. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Macy's user

"The cleanser is very gentle and yet totally cleans the make-up from my face effortlessly (with no srubbing.) Afterward my face feels smooth and moisturized! You need ONLY a small, SMALL amount (less than the size of a small pea) to do the job. I had a severe allergic reaction to some medication I was taking which casued a VERY BAD break out and within 2 days of using this product along with 2 other SkinMedica products (which I will also highly rate) my face looked 100% better! I love this product and will never use anything else!!!" - dermstore user
"I am a young Caucasian adult with combination skin. I want a cleanser that cleans my skin (aka does its job), doesn't dry my skin out, and is a simple product with respect to ingredients. I enjoy using this cleanser by Simple. I can work it into a nice lather without needing to use that much product. It doesn't irritate my skin or make it red after use. It also doesn't strip my skin to the point where it feels tight after use; it still maintains integrity and smoothness of the skin. I use this twice a day, along with moisturizer, to keep my face clean day and night. I have not experienced dryness from this product. As for acne, I haven't had any breakouts while using this product that seem cleanser-related. Healthiness of the skin also comes from getting good sleep, eating healthy, and keeping your face clean/not touching it or picking at it. I don't think that healthy facial skin is the result of even the best of cleansers alone. That being said, I feel that this cleanser accomplishes what I want in a cleanser (aforementioned above) and would recommend it. I like that Simple provides a link to look at the ingredients of the product and their use. Do your own research; this is YOUR body and skin!" - walmart user
"I developed an allergy overnight to my Clinique moisturizer I've used for the past year. My face turned red, bumps developed that looked like acne all over my face, and massive pimples on my chin. My chin even swelled up because of one of the pimples. It's nothing I've ever experienced before. It felt like my face had been sitting in the sun for hours. So I decided to tried this because I remember using it in the past. I put it on in the car because I couldn't wait and it felt amazing. It feels so cool, refreshing, and doesn't dry my face out (I have combo of oily and dry). Plus it smells really good. My face looked better in just a few hours. It's been a few days and it brought my skin back to normal. I have sensitive skin anyway but it's hasn't felt this good in a long time.

"I have extremely sensitive skin due to genetics, a gluten allergy and slight rosacea around my nose and chin. Well, I've tried every cleanser in the book from CVS to Sephora, nothing worked. I about gave up on washing my face, thought I'd have to deal with dullness and zits. Well I went into Saks during a Beauty Event and decided to try the legendary La Mer. After one use my skin looked radiant, firmer and felt so clean and pure. I have found a cleanser that finally doesn't cause my skin to break out into tiny bumps from an allergic reaction, it doesn't cause my skin to be oily nor dry and dull and it smells so refreshing! The other great bonus is that while it's costly, there's a governor in the pump that permits the perfect pump of cleanser. You get just enough of what you need so you won't over use it. At around $11 an ounce, it's actually quite practical. You get a lot for what you pay and I firmly believe that with beauty, you absolutely get what you pay for. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - saksfifthavenue.com user
"ok...i had rosacea pop up in my life about 4 years ago. i struggled to find sensitive skin products that helped with both the redness and dry, flakiness, but even if they helped at first, their soothing effects always seemed to diminish a couple weeks after use. i randomly came across a travel set of the murad vitalic energizing pomegranate line (that mom actually found a garage sale for $3...nice, right?) and fell in love. i was using it for about a year, again starting to notice the soothing quality dropping, and when i went into a sephora store to re-cop, had one of the sales ladies tell me that i should switch to this line for my rosacea. that was last december, and i just will not buy anything else. murad is a litlle pricey, but you only have one face, so you should go ahead and splurge for it, right? :) on top of that, i am still somewhat prone to blemishes as i have the world's largest pores and sometimes oily t-zone. if you are also having issues like this, this is what i have found to work for me, so i thought maybe it could be useful to someone else out there: ~redness therapy soothing gel cleanser ~t-zone pore refining gel ~correcting moisturizer and twice a week: ~pomegranate exfoliating mask i am currently stuck in the midwest, where they experience all four seasons, and there are occasional breakouts and slight dryness, with the period or change of weather, but overall, i wish i had four thumbs so i could give this regimen 4 thumbs up. i feel it's worth every penny, every time. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user
"I've been a huge fan of TBS and I've tried so many of their cleansers; this one is the best for me so far. I've got oily combination skin, issues with large pores and a little bit of redness; occasional breakouts under the chin and all that. I've tried the Tea Tree cleanser, but it ended up drying my face out. I then switched to the Aloe foaming cleanser, hoping it would help with the redness, but it was just an ok cleanse, nothing special. This one here, is amazing. I've used this for two days, but I'm feeling a difference! I love how you need so little to lather up so much foam so easily! And unlike the foam from those special pumping bottles, this cleanser feels like it has weight on your face, and it really does clean deeper into my pores. My face felt so much softer after the second use. I woke up with literally not oil in my t-zone in the morning- a miracle. And it wasn't a dry no-oil feeling; it was a simple feeling of cleanliness which I loved!!! I personally love the smell of it too, so that's definitely a plus, though I wasn't that fond of it when I first started with the seaweed line two years ago. You'll get used to it though, and it will smell GREAT when you do :) <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - thebodyshop-usa.com user

"Exfoliants are a bit of an issue for me as I have dry, sensitive skin.I have tried many, rejected all and settled for using them only twice a year and only laborious non physical ones. I found many years ago a body scrub, but a face one eluded me.I still searched as I would seasonally 'shed' skin on my bust which is not my favourite look, besides, I spend a fortune of creams that would work better if the many dead layers of skin were not there.Then I received a generous sample of this last spring (which lasted a few months, many thanks), tried it gingerly on my wrist, loved it.The smell is fresh (I worried it would be too strong), the grains super fine and SMOOTH.It polishes as the name indicates, and does not, miracle of miracle, irritate or bring a rash on. I use it on wet skin on both the face and the bust.If you have easily irritated skin, I know how dubious you would be by now: I hate physical exfoliants, fear biological one, have fallen out with many facialists over this issue. One will make me bright red, the other leave me with a dermatitis, I have even had rashes that lasted months following exfoliation.But this one works.Only some Space NK store stock this (the one near Bond Street does), so go and try it if you want to be safe.I admit I baulked at the price when I saw how much it was for a 'mere scrub' but the tube is huge and all I can say is I bought it and will buy it again as I have finally found my face scrub holy grail.

Pore refining exfoliating cleanser by neutrogena visibly reduces the appearance of pores just by washing your face. This dermatologist-tested formula with alpha and beta hydroxy acids and microbeads delivers visible results.
"I got the deluxe sample, and let me tell you... This. is. Quality. I've never tried clinique just because not many of their items appeal to me as i could always find a face wash or other item at a more reasonable price. But this has made me question my decision. I've used for the longest time the biore pore strips but goodness am I NEVER buying those types again. This product cleans out my pores like a little vaccuum. It goes on and has the consistency of a mud mask and tries very quickly. A little goes a long way so don't use too much. While washing it off it has a really gently exfoliate. While also not leaving the skin feeling super dry or overworked. A little hard to wash off but that just means more exfoliating time. I've used it multiple days in a row without irritation and i've noticed my pores are clean and appear smaller. My skin is smooth and is easily able to take in moisturizer. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user
A gentle, pH-balancing gel cleanser that treats skin to a restoring cocktail of 11 amino acids with a splash of mineral-rich seawater - say goodbye to makeup and pollutants.
"I have terribly dry skin and needed a solution. I actually tried a few cleansers every other month to see which was more effective. I have a lot of dry areas on my face and needed something that would hydrate. The cleanser that I was previously did great as make-up remover but not so much as hydrating my skin. I have used Olay products in the past and wanted to give this Olay Active Botanicals Gel Cleanser a try. First, I must say that the scent is very soft and not overwhelming. The bubbles felt very soft and gentle on my skin after lathering it up with my fingers before applying. I have sensitive skin, so I was glad to feel that there were no harsh reaction to it in any way. After I rinsed off, my face felt refreshing. After a week's use I found that my face was much softer and the dryness has got better. I will continue to give it a try as well as search for a moisturizer that will be a great compliment to this gel cleanser.

I generally do a double cleanse at night -Tatcha's oil cleanser followed by Exfolikate. With the addition of retinol to my routine, I was looking for something gentler that would still help with my congested and irritated skin. This has been a great addition for that purpose." - sephora user
"Clinique makes quality products that are customizable to many different types of skin (from sensitive, to oily, to combination, etc.) and of course products with this amount of success and customization come at a premium. As frugal as I tend to be, there are some things on which one just can't scrimp -- and effective facial care is surely one of them.Can you wash your face with soap and water and effectively get your makeup off, racoon-eyes and all? Yes. Eventually. You can slather some Intensive Care moisturizer on there while you're at it, too, but at what cost? Dry, damaged skin with clogged pores and/or *gasp* wrinkles? No, thanks, none for me. I'll stick with my Clinque Take The Day Off in the purple bottle. It even takes waterproof mascara off with ease (and without an oily mess)! Follow it up with the face wash in the green tube (or, my preference, the pump bottle) and you're good to go in a matter of minutes. It's not one-stop shopping but the effectiveness of this combo simply can not be beaten.In fact, since I've discovered this particular product line, I won't be going back to any of the "daily facial" or other assorted pad make-up removers. Haven't they always seemed unnecessarily messy and costly? With Clinique Take The Day Off make up remover and face wash combo, it's easy to control just how much of the product that you use, so none goes to waste. Just dab Clinique Take The Day Off onto cotton balls or pads (or toilet paper, in a pinch), don't forget to shake the bottle gently to mix the layers, then hold the wet pad/ball to your eye for a three count before just gently wiping away the day; no pulling, no scrubbing, and therefore no trauma to your skin. You'll feel clean, plain and simple. Just clean, clear, and shining. Two pumps of the face wash is all you need for a luxurious foaming wash; never a greasy or tight feeling. Just clean, clean, clean!Everything from foundation to mascara to liner and lipstick, gone in a flash; no pore-clogging wrinkle-inducing residue.I follow Take The Day Off with the Clinique three-step program (wash, astringent, moisturizer) and feel cleaner than a whistle. While it's not necessary that you use all three steps, the products are chemically designed to work together and enhance one another. This quick (and painless, but perhaps for your wallet) process has helped ward off signs of stress and aging. True, you might pay a little more for Clinique than you would some generic drugstore brands, but the effects will be noteworthy.Consider this our little about-face-frugal-beauty-secret; it's better to pay up front for something that works than multiple times over searching through the many brands that don't!

I have never put such a luxurious moisturizer on my skin.

This product, however, feels so soft, leaves no irritation and smells absolutely orangey and delicious. " - laladaisy.com user
"I prefer to use this cleanser in the shower with a small rubber cleansing sponge. This cleanser gets my makeup off and really cleanses my skin. It’s a nice light weight gel formula and provides plenty of foam action when used with a bit of water. It doesn’t strip your skin of the necessary oils that it needs, but it does provide a squeaky clean feeling. I would highly recommend this product for people that have sensitive skin like myself and for someone that is looking for a quality cleanser on a budget. It’s everything you need in a cleanser and affordable so you’re able to splurge on skincare that stays on your skin instead of an overpriced cleanser that you wash off almost instantly." - sephora user
"Fresh Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash is super gentle on my skin. Because it says exfoliating, I was concerned of it being a scratchy mineral formula. But it is not! The sugar crystals dissolve nicely. It’s a rather smooth and thick texture. So not much is needed to cover your face. It removed my makeup great and cleansed my face of all dirt and oil buildup leaving my skin feeling and looking fresh and rejuvenated. The scent is light and the texture of the formula is very similar to that of strawberry jam. It’s so realistic. I like the little strawberry seed extracts in the mix. I was worried it would be too sticky but it’s not. It’s a very nice and smooth cleansing formula. Soaps up nicely with more water. Pro tip of mine is use less water for more of a exfoliating process or more for less. Use a daily moisturizer after use. Overall my skin looked brighter and felt smoother. My pores even look less noticeable. I love this better than other products I’ve used because it doesn’t take much to smooth over your entire face and it’s a unique and fun formula to use. Beautiful design and the bottle tube form is great for in shower use. Highly recommend! I received this product complimentary for review purposes." - sephora user

It pumps out as a gel but foams nicely into a light lather that goes on smoothly and rinses off easily. Leaves my skin cleansed and my pores feeling just a little tightened, like an astringent might do. But not dry or uncomfortable. I don't love the scent - slightly fruity. But it's not too strong and doesn't linger so not a deal breaker. As I said, I don't really see any anti-aging benefits after using this for a couple weeks. My fine lines, wrinkles and age spots haven't changed. But just as a simple face wash, it's nice and leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed at the end of the day." - walmart user

A gentle daily gel cleanser that foams without water, infused with Japanese hachimitsu honey to replenish skin while removing impurities.
"In my previous efforts to exfoliate, I've tried many other products by major players like Ryobi, Rigid, and even manual solutions like the Workforce SB319/SS stainless steel wire brush and scraper. Once the skin grew back - baby bottom soft. So I was a little skeptical at the thought of sometime more mild like LiquidSand. My wife said, "Come on, at least give it a try. And take your tool belt back to the garage." Let me tell you - although I don't get the sub-dermal clean I can get from my belt sander, LiquidSand does the job remarkably well and doesn't make toddlers cry when they see me in the store. About the product? It smells nice without smashing my nose off with perfume. The texture is gritty, yet creamy - the way one might describe a bowl of Cream of Wheat - only, you know, clear. Washing LiquidSand off my face doesn't seem to leave any residue, but does leave my skin pretty smooth. The one drawback I experience, which may be the result of my skin type and reaction to "men's face stuff," is that in the ensuing hours, my face seems to become more oily. Perhaps the removal of dead skin and pore-blocking detritus encourages healthy flow of oils? How should I know? I leave the skincare chemistry to the scientists. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-103528124904371778-full" data-show="-103528124904371778-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Birchbox user

"I honestly have no complaints about this product. Can't think of a single one! I was recommended this product by a sales associate who reassured me that this product would be good for combination skin. I'm in my late 20's and I rarely get pimples or breakouts but when I do they tend to be on my forehead (t-zone). My cheeks however can be very dry, especially in the winter when I usually develop dry patches that last all winter. So it's important to me to find a product that will not dry out my cheeks but still address break-outs oiliness in my t-zone and this product does just that. I also have to mention that I have seriously sensitive skin that doesn't do well with harsh or frangranced products, and this product does not irritate my skin at all, yet gets it feeling clean but not dry. And not a single break out since using this almost 2 months now. So to sum up: its good for sensitive skin, non-drying, non-stripping, and prevents break-outs. Win-win! « less" - ulta.com user
"I have been using Mario Badescu's skin care products twice a day (morning and night) religiously for 6 months and I have noticed an improvement in my skin. While living in California I had combination skin during the warmer months (normal on the cheeks, slightly oily on the T-zone) and normal/dry skin during the colder months (slightly dry on the cheeks and normal on the T-zone). I moved to Hawaii 3.5 years ago and my skin did not like the huge increase in humidity. My skin went to slightly oily on the cheeks and oily on the T-zone. I had also started to break out with acne (deep red bumps). I started using Mario Badescu's Cucumber Cleansing Lotion to help control my oil and break outs and it worked for me. The product comes in simple packaging (which is one way in which they are able to keep their prices affordable). It is an orange colored gel. This product does not lather so if that is important to you in a cleanser, then you will not like it. It removes oil and make up well and leaves your skin feeling clean but not dried out. It has a pleasant but not strong smell. I use this to cleanse my skin in the morning and in the evening I use Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser with the Sonicare cleansing brush. I also tone with Mario Badescu Cucumber Cleansing Lotion and apply Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector morning and night, and Neutrogena Healthy Defense Moisturizer SPF50 in the morning. This skin care regimen helped to control the oil production of my skin and prevent break outs. Before, I would constantly have a shiny T-zone and need to use oil blotting papers by midday but not after using this product! After just a few days, I noticed that the texture of my skin was improved. My skin looked smoother and pores were less noticeable. Over a few weeks, the pigmentation of my skin looked more even and less blotchy. The scars from my break outs were the first to fade and eventually the sun spots that I have on the tops of my cheeks were lighter too. I was never a heavy liquid foundation wearer but I usually always wear compact powder to even out my skin tone. After using this product, I feel like I don't have to. Overall, this is a great product for use on any type of skin." - nordstrom user

Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Brightening Exfoliating Daily Cleanser is a gentle, exfoliating cleanser that helps to purify from oil, dirt and pollutants while visibly enhancing skin clarity.
"I am a huge fan of the Garnier Micellar Water for Combination Skin but found that it can sometimes leave a film on the skin, so I was looking for a similiarly gentle but effective cleanser. I stumbled across this and was sold, instantly. It's very gentle and kind to the skin - plus you only need a tiny amount each time, meaning this bottle will last me ages. The consistency is incredibly thin so you have to work quickly. It leaves my skin clean of oils without feeling stripped. I love it. " - superdrug.com user
