Rated 2 out of 5 by Eleonore Does not prevent acne
Although this cleanser does aid with lightening pigmentation (it does so very slowly, and not as well as straight aloe from the plant) and softens skin, it doesn't prevent breakouts. I am going to go back to using the Ultra facewash.
Rated 3 out of 5 by jane42 Gentle, but no difference in my skin tone
PROS: gentle, not overdrying, light scent, lasts a long time
CONS: no effect on my dark spots
I have light/medium, combo skin w/hyperpigmentation + acne scars. I've been using this cleanser for several months; it did not lighten my marks, but it seems like a good basic cleanser. I like that it is not overdrying. It also doesn't foam much. A little product goes a long way; this bottle will probably last me 7-8 months. But if you're looking for something to lighten skin tone, this is not it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by gabc Just wow!
Lets just say I have complicated skin due to the variable climate here in Miami. I've searched high and low for a cleanser that doesn't dry out my face when its chilly/dry weather and that doesn't cause breakouts when its hot/humid. This is by far the best cleanser I've ever discovered. Oh and not to mention the complexion improvement after just one week of use! I'm in love!
Many many thanks Kiehl's
Rated 5 out of 5 by ladybug24 best cleanser i've found!
I have combination skin, and am currently pregnant (which has definitely caused more breakouts). I have used MULTIPLE different cleansers and product lines, never having any luck controlling my combo skin and breakouts. A lot of formulations dry my skin out too much causing flaking, plus I am 30 and trying to avoid wrinkles. I have tried dermalogica, origins, lush, clinique, cetaphil, philosophy....nothing seemed to impress me or work well with my skin. since being pregnant I have developed some dark spots and scars and decided to try this specific cleanser from Kiehls, the dark spots are slowly fading and I honestly have had no breakouts since starting this cleanser over 1 month ago. I am using it in conjunction with the oil free toner and ultra facial cream. I just ordered the spot correcting serum to see if this helps with residual discoloration. So happy that I have found something that finally works! seriously, it's taken years of trial and error.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SweetPeaLee My favorite Kiehl's Cleanser by far!
I can't say enough about this cleanser. Smells great, nice fresh, light scent, does not over dry or under cleanse (I have normal skin with a super dry patch between my eyebrows), evens out dark spots and has left my skin visibly more even and younger looking. Like most Kiehl's products a little goes a long way, and at under $30 one of the best deals they have. Love it love it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by NMCS Worth It
I was skeptical to spend the money on a product that I wasn't sure was going to work. Knock on wood since using this face wash I have not had any issues with my skin. A bonus is that when a blemish starts to form this face wash prevents it from becoming anything and it's gone within a day. I exfoliate twice a week and use this wash the other five days. I've tried many different lines and combinations of things and nothing has worked until now.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BrieCT My Go-To Cleanser
This is my absolute favorite cleanser. I have dry and very sensitive skin but I also tend to get oily in my T-zone. This cleanser makes my skin feel clean without drying it out. The smell is very clean. It's expensive but because it foams, it lasts a long time. You only need a little bit.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dkauf Great Cleanser!!
I really like this cleanser. It washes off very clean, but not tight. I use a Clarisonic Brush and it works well with this cleanser. A little goes a long way.
