Heidi W: gentlle on sensitve skin -- all types--no foam because extra chemicls are added to cleansing products that do foam becaus consumers are used to that & Kiehl's prides itself on the purit of its ingredients & foaming is an unnecessary trick --put your toner in the fridge in the hot summer & store the rest in a cooler place than the bathroom year round Mar 31, 2012

Heidi W: It's verry similar --- Use the Gentle foaming Facial Cleanser (take a walk on the wild side) -- I've been using it for 20 years on dry, sensitive skin and I dont look a day older than 39. I've never heard of the product u mentioned. Read the ingredients, call and ask customer service. And read above under Heidi W. & When you call -- inquire about their return policy. Kiehl's is good stuff and NEVER feels or smells heavily perfumed or all nasty chemically.... Dec 18, 2012

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Carolyn V: It depends how oily your skin is--for combination or sensitive skin I would use this. It is my favorite cleanser ever. But if it is super oily, use Ultra Facial cleanser--it dried my skin just a little too much but that might be perfect for you. Jun 6, 2012

Lynn B: I can only vouch for it as a fantastic cleanser for normal/combination skin. It leaves skin feeling clean and fresh but not at all dry. You might want to get a free sample and try it out for yourself to see if it works for you. Jun 5, 2012

ELLEN L: Despite its name, this product does not foam. It is very effective as a cleanser, however, and I include my eyekids in cleansing with it. It is non-drying and does not sting my eyes, so I conclude that it is soap-free. My only problem with this product is that it does not have a pump and thus is difficult to dispense. I simply upend it over a container that has a pump and let the cleanse drip in. Kiehl's is non-responsive to my complaints about the packaging of many of its products. Jun 17, 2013

A shopper asked: Quick question: Is it okay to use this cleanser around the eye area?? Was disappointed when I received the bottle and the instructions said to avoid the eyes. Only wear mascara on a daily basis (no eye shadow) and want an all around cleanser. Thanks!! Feb 21, 2013

camille n: I thought the same thing when i read it too however i have been using this cleanser for years and use it for mascara , eye makeup removal and then to cleanse my face.
It is as they say ,gentle, but effective, no rubbing necessary, this is an all around cleanser. I am turning 50 but still look 40, So i think it works!

Heidi W: I'm guessing you mean the Gently Foaming Facial Cleanser -- it's great stuff -- I've been using it since my 20's.
Click on cleansers & masques and you'll find it on the first pag, bottom row, first item in last row -- I put a bottle in my basket today.
I don't know about the purify part -- it does a great job cleaning (purifying?), smoothing, softening skin. It is a cleanser. But get this mud/clay masque they have, it's really quite amazing -- it will clarify & purify your skin. Call customer service during their bussiness hours -- very nice knowledgable people in my experience.
& what is clearly corrective white -- perhaps the Kiehl's staff can clarify (if possible.)

A shopper asked: I have rosacea and need to effectively remove my light makeup (no sunscreen, just tinted moisturizer) without aggravating my skin too much. I notice after I apply this cleanser and rinse, I still have some foundation left behind on my skin. I can't use toner or washcloths (skin is too sensitive and reactive). How do I effectively remove my makeup with this cleanser? I have tried applying this cleanser, massaging and rinsing (repeating this procedure twice), but still see residual makeup left on my skin. Any suggestions? Aug 9, 2013

ELLEN L: I use Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. If that is the brand you use, my experience has been that it is not a "light" makeup and it does not remove easily. I always mix it in the palm of my hand with an equal amount of Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer. Thinning it seems to make it easier to remove, although I do use a dry washcloth first to remove the cleanser mixed with the makeup. I follow it with a wet washcloth to rinse. Perhaps washcloths made for babies would work for you. Sep 20, 2013
