Not for me
Lathered smoothly but didn't do much 'cleansing' for me. A bit too soft, if you know what I mean. Felt great on my face though, just didn't leave me feeling that fresh afterwards. Not for me, but might be for you if you have sensitive skin.

It lathers well but I find that I need a lot of it to remove makeup/thoroughly clean face. it is very gentle and easily washes off

Nice on my skin but not 100% satisfaction with the result
I have been using the daily cleansing gel for about 6 weeks now and I must say I'm not to excited about it. It doesn't remove my make-up completely and I find I have to cleanse twice at night to get it all off and I don't wear alot of make-up at all. It does feel nice on my skin and is very gentle but I have found that I keep getting small breakouts which I have never had from any other cleanser. I think it just doesn't clean deep enough for me.

no fuss cleanser
I really like this product, it's not fragranced and does a good job at removing make up. I also like the packaging, the pump and clear bottle make it much more user friendly (as opposed to those tubey type ones where you struggle to get the last drop out), so it sits by my basin ready for use. I follow this up with the serum and moisturiser and when used all together i feel like i've done my skin a great service. For the price, this product is amazing value and would definitely continue to use this in the future.

simple and effective
I was given 4 products to trial of the Palmer's Cocoa Butter facial care range. One of them was the Daily Cleansing Gel for Sensitive Skin. Unfortunately when it arrived in the mail the top of the bottle has unscrewed and some of the contents spilled onto the other products. So this was a downfall about the packaging of the product, because if I was to packed in my luggage when I off travelling there could be an accident in my bag! Otherwise the pump action is great for when I was washing my face in the morning and in the shower, so easy to use, you don't need to pop open any lids.
I used the cleanser day and night everyday for the past 3 weeks. A little goes a long way, there were alot of bubbles, but it was easily washed off and didn't leave my skin dry at all! My face felt nice and clean. Sometimes when I wear make up the cleanser was really effective and washed off the foundation residue. There were no harsh perfumes or burning sensations, it was really gentle and lovely. It contains calming ingredients like Aloe Vera, peptides and Vitamin E which I found made my skin soft and supple.
I would definitely recommend this to my friends who have senstive skin. A great little cleanser to have, and even better if you use other products in the range with it to achieve the best results.

Thankyou to Beauty Heaven for allowing me to trial this product. I tried this for 3 weeks along with 3 other products from the range; this was my least favourite product.
I always love a clear package that allows you to easily monitor how much product is remaining. The pump pack is another great innovation that allows you to precisely control how much product is dispensed. The soft plastic is also great to grip when you have wet or slippery hands! It has a mild and pleasant scent, somewhere in between the signature Palmers Cocoa Butter scent and a rosehip scent?
Personally I found this cleanser a little too thick. I do have oily skin and require a thorough cleansing, but I found that the thickness of this product made it heavy on the skin. I was a little surprised to see that it claimed to be for ‘sensitive skin’ when one of the main ingredients is sodium laureth sulphate, which I understand can be quite harsh on sensitive skins? I however do not have an issue with SLS, and it did mean that the cleanser produced a very rich lather easily, which is good.
I found that the cleanser was a little too harsh and stripped my skin. However in saying that, the other products within the range are so nurturing and moisturising that any stripping effects were counteracted.

Non drying gentle cleanser
I was sent this cleanser to trial as part of the trial team. It is a very gentle, non drying cleanser that is suitable for morning and evening use.
The cleanser comes in a 150ml pump bottle. I found this packaging to be highly convenient. 1 pump was enough to do my whole face, though if I was using it with my Clarisonic brush then I'd use 2 pumps. I wear glasses, though obviously not in the shower, so a pump pack is the easiest form of packaging for me to use - theres no fiddling around with lids or tubes.
The cleanser is fragrance free so just smells vaguely detergenty. I wasn't overl keen on the lack of frangrance - I would have preferred it to be frangranced though this is designed for sensitive skin and as a fragrance is often a irritant it is probably best that it is unfragranced.
I found the cleanser to be lightly foaming. I'd pump it into my hands, rub them together until i got a light foam the massage it into my face. It was really easy to use and was a very effective cleanser. I never tested it on makeup removal but on general cleansing it did ane xcellent job. It didn't dry out my skin at all and even if I didnt get moisturiser on straight away it still didnt feel tight.
I found that this was a great cleanser to have on hand for when me skin was feeling fragile. It was so gentle and didnt irritate it at all. Whilst this wasnt my favourite cleanser that I have ever used, mostly due to the lack of fragrance, I would buy it again to have on hand if my skin is ever going through a sensitive phase.

Fantastic Everyday Cleanser
If you're after an effective, cost effective cleanser, this is the product for you!
It comes in a ginormous 150ml pack & costs only $9.99, so it's great value for money. The pump dispenser is brilliant, as there's no need to hold the bottle upside down to get the cleanser out & I don't leave dirty makeup stains all over it & the nozzle doesn't clog up with product.
The product itself is a thick clear gel, with a faint earthy smell, but not unpleasant or over powering. I found a little goes a long way with this & one pump dispensed enough product to cleanse my whole face, taking off all my makeup in one wash. I loved that it left my face feeling soft & clean, but not dry.
If you're looking for cost effective cleanser that works, I would definitely give this a go!

Well-priced, not up to expectations.
I received this Gel cleanser as a part of the Palmers trial team and I was really excited about it because I usually love Palmers products. The first thing I noticed was the smell was very soapy. I was expecting a beautiful scent as that's what my experiences with the other Palmers products have shown me.
The second thing I noticed was the pump bottle. It dispenses way more product than you need and is very impractical for transport as you need to push it down to lock it which can waste a whole pump of product if you're not thinking ahead. As I travel to my dads place every week so this was a big thing for me.
Now that the bad stuff is out of the way... for all of that it does actually work. It didnt irritate my sensitive skin and provided a smooth surface for makeup.
The gel was the right consistency and felt nice on application. It didnt leave behind a residue and wasnt hard to rinse off.

SDaily cleansing gel
I've been using this for 3 weeks as part of trial team,
- love the hygienic, easy to use pump packaging.Since the bottle is transparent I can easily see how much left of it.
- doesn't break my skin out.
- light cocoa butter scent: you know it's Palmer's!
- very affordable.
- the pump always gives out too much gel.
- when I tried putting the gel directly on my skin before lathering, it never worked. I have to work it into lather first on my hands before putting it on my face. It could be something to do with living in soft water area though.
- it didn't clean my makeup properly. I have to use other makeup cleanser first before using this cleaser. Perhaps it's best used as a morning cleanser.
- it stings so much if it accidentally gets in the eyes.
I would keep on using this until the bottle is empty. Would not be buying this unless I don't have any other choice.
