Best cleanser yet!

5

This is going to be a staple for me going forward. It’s gentle, doesn’t dry out my skin, is more effective at reducing blackheads than any previous cleansers I’ve used and I’ve stopped getting the hormone related spots on my cheeks. I honestly can’t think of anything that could be improved.

Best cleanser I have ever tried

5

It gently cleanses my skin and leaves it clean and plump. It somehow reminds me of The Inkey Lists SA cleanser, but the feeling after cleansing is better. I have oily acne-prone skin and it’s so far the best cleanser I have ever tried.

Good product

4

To me, this is a good facial cleanser that doesn’t strip the skin. I do wonder about some of the sense of buying expensive cleansers as the question is do the ingredients stay on the skin long enough to do any benefit? With that said I would always avoid SLS and anything which is not certified cruelty free. This product fits my criteria, but it is a little pricey.

Just love this stuff

5

Does everything it promises. Can’t praise enough. Removed make up really gently and feels lovely. Never leaves my skin feeling tight or dry.

Disappointing

2

I bought this based off the largely positive reviews, as well as the promise of hydration, but I found the total opposite. Sorry but not impressed. It’s easy to use at the time but afterwards my skin feels very tight and dry, even flaking. Really disappointed especially given the price point, it feels like a cheap drugstore cleanser.

Unfortunately I can’t recommend.

2

This is a lovely product in that it’s a gel cleanser that turns into a foam and washes off easily. However, only a couple of days after using this my cheeks were red raw, sore, and dry; in fact, my whole face was really uncomfortable with dryness. I don’t have sensitive skin at all and my skin type is mostly normal, maybe combination/oily at times. I don’t react to products usually either but the effects of using this cleanser on my skin is awful and I’m still slathering moisturiser on now to try and help my skin condition. I’m surprised as I chose this product as it had excellent ratings but for me, it’s a huge disappointment and I cannot recommend it. The first and only time I will be trying Paula’s Choice - sorry.

Perfect cleanser

5

Hydrating, non-stripping, for sensitive skin, removes impurities very well, does not tingle or burn.

Morning cleanse

5

Love this product and use it every morning. Only a small amount required. My first Paula’s Choice product and I’ll definitely be looking at the rest of her range.

My second cleanse for as long as they keep making it!

5

I was looking for the perfect cleanser for light days when I just need something to get the day off, or for normal days when I do a second cleanse in the evening. This is perfect and I have found my absolute favourite cleanser! I'm actually glad that it doesn't foam lightly as it says in the description, but upon using just a very small (smaller than a pea even) amount, and getting that emulsifying texture, it's a really nice cream. I have sensitive skin and felt I could trust Paula's Choice, and it has proven me right, so much so that it's going to be my holy grail cleanser as long as they keep making it! Skin feels soft, hydrated and prepped for whatever my next step will be.
