Favourite cleanser for dry skin

However I have dry skin this cleanser is very good. I wear heavy makeup so I need to have a good cleaning in the evening. This one both is thorough as well as gentle. I have bought it several times

perfect AM cleanse

This is the perfect morning cleanse for me! Gently exfoliating, brightening, slightly foaming, non drying and.... smells of strawberries! And not fake perfumey strawberries - the real deal! Perfect.

Smells like a bowl of fresh strawberries

I love this gentle cleanser for summer and the natural philosophy behind the brand. Thanks to the strawberry seed oil, it smells wholly and completely like a bowl of chopped fresh strawberries. The lightweight gel texture massages up nicely. The two-in-one use is a really clever touch - it can also be used as a lightly exfoliating enzyme mask to leave skin a little brighter.

Love this

I've been trying to find a perfect cleansing gel for ever. And this one is my fave. It's perfect as a morning cleanser and when my skin feels too dry I use it as an evening one as well. It's super gentle and never leaves my skin tight. The strawberry smell is fine. And since most of my routine smells awful this one is refreshing.

Oh, the smell!

I was overwhelmed by the smell, to the point of gagging. It definitely smells fruity, but of rotten fermented fruit. I have to hold my breath every time I use it. It doesn’t appear to do a great deal for me, so I wouldn’t be repurchasing it.

Not Overwhelmed

My first unfortunately came with a broken pump, but customer service handled that really well. Once I had a working product, I have to say I was slightly disappointed. It’s mild on the skin, I don’t feel hugely cleansed but it is pleasant enough to use. It’s sligtly foaming which I hadn’t realised. My main issue is with the smell, I had assumed it would be light and fresh but the strawberry is more sickly sweet like candy. Not an unpleasant product, and I’m certainly content to carry on using this one, but I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing.

Absolutely devastated!

I am hard pressed to leave a 5* review for this because of the fact that I can't get my hands on it right now. PLEASE re-stock this ASAP cultbeauty!!!! This is probably my favourite item in my current skin care routine and I have some really good stuff - but for someone with dry, sensitive, hormonal skin, this cleanser has been heavenly. It takes off all my leftover makeup (I usually use this as a second cleanse - occasionally as both first and second) and never leaves my skin feeling tight. It seems I'll need to purchase a hundred of these when this is re-stocked.

Refreshing without stripping

This is now my go-to warm weather cleanser. I was initially put off by the strawberry scent but as soon as I had this on my face I was in love- the sweet scent is totally balanced out by the feel of it in use. It has a 'foaming' texture, but without any of the foaming nasties which would normally strip your skin (and which I avoid like the plague). I have normal skin and I don't feel dry afterwards at all, it just feels incredibly refreshing! I like it for the mornings to wake up my face (and it genuinely makes me look much more awake and bright!), and for the evenings after SPF to get rid of that greasy feeling. Although I don't think this cleanser is truly drying, in winter I rotate back to my balms just because they 'feel' better in cold weather. Similarly, if you have dry skin you may not like the feel of this cleanser. But if you have oily skin or used to be a die hard foaming face wash kind of person this would be perfect! I will definitely be repurchasing.

I always look forward to cleaning my face now

I have combination skin - acne prone, but also very sensitive and often dehydrated. I’ve tried innumerable cleansers in the past, many irritate my skin, are tingling or even burning. Those that don’t irritate or cause reactions either leave my skin way too tight feeling or leave residue/feel as if I can’t quite get them off. I must say this Indie Lee cleanser takes a little getting used to in terms of how it feels when washing off but it’s absolutely amazing after I realized that’s how it is, and honestly, how a cleanser should feel in general. Doesn’t irritate, doesn’t break me out, still does the job. Oh and the smell! No words. Love it.

This is the only cleanser that I have ever repurchased (3 times now). The texture, the smell, the immediate effects, all amazing. My skin feels cleansed but not at all tight, and I feel like it does brighten! I love leaving it on for a little longer like a mini mask as suggested. The only teeny tiny fault I'd pick is that it's not ideal for travel but I'd overlook that.
