Non drying gentle cleanser
Review resubmitted for Glosscars consideration
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.

Basic gel cleanser
I wasn’t overly impressed or wowed by this cleanser - it’s really just your basic cleansing gel with a typical clear, runny consistency. Though it is fragrance free, there is a faint detectable scent of cocoa which doesn’t smell that nice in this particular product. I find that the gel doesn’t lather or foam up that much and therefore feel like it’s not cleansing my skin thoroughly enough. It’s also not that particularly refreshing nor calming, though it does leave my skin feeling comfortable, without that dry, tight feeling which other harsher cleansers can leave. I'll give it a 2.5 stars.

Bit drying but otherwise does the job
This is a good cleansing gel because it removes grease and oil. It leaves skin feeling soft and smooth and was easy to apply. However, it drys out my chin terribly even though the rest of my face is fine.

A gentle cleansing pump
Just one pump is more than enough to completely cove your face with a gentle lather which leaves your skin feeling fresh, smooth and thoroughly cleans of grime and make up. My skin is normally sensitive and gets easily irritated whenever i wash my face, but this one suit my skin perfectly.

i have dry skin and i found this product really good. i also love the packaging of the product, as it is the pump bottle. my skin was refreshed after using it.

The pump dispenser packaging makes this cleanser super easy to use. Less than one full pump gives me enough to wash my face and neck, so it's super economical. One bottle lasts ages. I've been using this daily for over two months and I still have half a bottle. My skin is quite oily, pimple prone and I have redness issues, only at times experiencing sensitivity so I wasn't convinced it would be any good for me. However, I did find this to be a pretty good cleanser. It's gentle and through, deeply cleansing and removing dirt and traces of makeup without stripping my skin. After washing my skin feels so soft, fresh and clean. It's not great at removing loads of makeup, but I usually use a cleansing oil before my regular cleanser anyway. It works best in the morning when I don't have makeup to remove but for ease of use I ended up using it in the evening. I have had to alternate this with my regular cleanser, which is specifically for oily, pimply skin. On it's own it just didn't help the pimple situation. I've also found it to be great for cleaning my makeup brushes. I truely found it to be fragrance free, I couldn't smell anything when using this product. I am surprised that it contains sodium laureth sulfate, and for this reason I won't be repurchasing it. If I was to recommend it to friends I would mention that it contains sulfates.

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.
