A bit disappointed

I was excited about this cleanser because I love the Clarins line, and I was looking for a gentle yet effective cleansing product. I found this cleanser to be quite drying, although I tend to have combination skin. While it is effective at cleaning the skin and removing makeup, I found that it completely strips my skin of moisture leaving it looking dull and more wrinkled! It also smells like men's shaving cream. I think I'll stick with Clarins' Cleansing Milk with Alpine Herbs for normal-dry skin.

really pleasant to use

The cleanser pictured to the left is one of 3 foaming cleansers that Clarins makes. The one pictured is the one with cottonseed and it is formulated for normal to combination skin. It is the one I use most often, though I do have all 3 (one for dry skin with shea butter and one for oily skin with tamarind "beads"). The Cottonseed one is my favourite - it is a thorough but reasonably gentle foaming cleanser that washes off leaving my skin feeling fresh and truly "clean". It's not the best for removing heavy duty waterproof foundation or long lasting concealer or eye makeup (but I generally do a separate step to remove heavy makeup) but it is very effective at cleaning the skin at the end of the day or refreshing it in the morning (Clarins suggests using cool water to rinse in the a.m. but I don't do that - I still prefer a warm water rinse no matter the weather or time of day). A little of this goes a long way - even a pea sized dollop is too much! Very effective and enjoyable product to use. « less

Great Cleanser

Another wonderful Gentle Foaming Cleanser. This leaves your face feeling clean and refreshed. When your face is feeling dry and your in need luxurious moisture use the dry/sensitive skin with sheer butter: my all time favorite. Once your dry sensitive face is feeling more hydrated, then you can use this product. It's wonderful and non-irritating. The cottonseed does wonders for the skin, just as the sheer butter does. Either product is great. I have both of these products and multiples of them. As I like to have them by my sink and in my shower. I'm either obsessed or a fanatic when it comes to Clarins Products. As it has done miracles for my skin. It's helped sooth my dry sensitive skin and has reduced the redness and clear my complexion. It feels great, leaving your skin feeling great, which leads to you feeling great. Clarins helps liven your skin and makes you ready to face the world. Your skin looks better, in return you feel better and your confidence in how your skin looks is brighter than ever! If you want your skin to feel and look alive and well hydrated or whatever skincare concerns that you have, try Clarins: What do you have to lose? Except, dry, dull, lifeless skin.....right??? This is another must have. It's a great product as well. I do prefer the Gentle Foaming Cleanser Dry/Sensitive skin because I love the richness of the product and they way it makes my skin feel and also the way it lifts my spirits and brightens my day, but this one is a great product as well. As I use both...

Love it!

I have suffered with severe cystic acne for 6 years now, and I have an oily T-zone with dry patches, along with sensitivity.I randomly stumbled upon this product and decided to give it a go.This product literally got rid of most of my cystic acne! Now I have few pimples here and there, but they are mostly from lack of sleep and stress.I'm currently in the process of using my third tube, and I like to cut open the bottle when it becomes hard to get some product out of it.The only downsides to this product are their price and their new design. You can't get a clean amount out of it like it used to from a protruding opening (now it's goes more inward).I like to make sure my pores are open (with warm water) and my hands are clean before cleansing my face.I take about half-inch of the cleanser onto my left index finger and gather my hand into a small bowl shape, filling it with a bit of warm water. Then, I like to mix the cleanser into the warm water, creating soft foams, while avoiding crushing the micro-beads.Then I work the lathered foam in a circular inward motion starting at the center of my face and my nose, and gradually move onto my forehead and etc, making sure to work in the foam in an outward motion afterwards.Next, I rinse off the cleanser in the same circular pattern and finish off with cold water, patting my face dry with a clean towel and moving onto my skincare items as soon as I can.I don't think I will be able to live without this product! « less

What a difference!

I bought this facial cleanser because I'd tried all of the "better" supermarket facial cleansers (Eucerin, Cetaphil, Neutrogena, etc) at the request of my dermatologist. I have extremely sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts if I use the wrong product---breakouts that can be so severe they necessitate filling an Accutane rx. Anyone who's taken Accutane knows that the medicine dries you out, can cause severe headaches, dry, tired eyes--the list can go on and on. Therefore, being on that medication for longer than 5 months is no picnic. I was breaking out with every product my dermatoligist was recommending. On a whim, I read through these reviews, and figured, "what the heck." This product had received so many positive reviews, and was hoping I could add to them. After finishing my first tube, I am VERY pleased to say this cleanser prevented me from having any breakouts in the last few months. My skin has never felt or looked better sans Accutane. I feel the product is cleaning my facial skin thoroughly, but gently, but doesn't dry me out, either. For the entire time I've been using this product, I've not had one pimple, and my skin appears healthier, softer, and younger. I think my skin is in the best condition since my teen years. I have just ordered my second tube of this product, and will not use any other cleanser moving forward. It is high priced, but to me, it's well worth it, especially since I can avoid having to take a very toxic medication for 5 months that causes multiple unpleasant side effects. To me, $20 is worth that and more! I think this product would be especially helpful to those with "aging" skin--i.e., those 40 and older. I can't recommend this product enough! « less
