Found it strange at the start that this cleanser didn't foam up like ones I had used before but it's a lovely gentle cleanser that won't strip your skin or leave it feeling tight.
I really like this cleanser. It doesn’t feel like it’s doing much because it doesn’t foam or froth, but once you remove it (I use the COM, and then a splash of water), your skin feels ridiculously clean. I can’t describe the feeling of my skin after using it....it’s like it feels like oil or glass, but in a really, really good way! It feels smooth and bright and the cleanest it’s ever felt. It looks it too. The cleanser stings the slightest bit sometimes, but that goes away once you rinse it off and I’m never left with irritation from it. I’d highly recommend it.
Cleans skin beautifully leaving it fresh and clear
This cleanser leaves your skin feeling cleansed and refreshed without any drying or stinging sensation. A little goes a long way and it’s quick to use morning and evening.
Skin feels clean after use, but haven't noticed any improvement in texture, underneath spots...
