Why did you choose this?
Kiehl's Since 1851 Store
Please bring this back--it was a great pore minimizer and smoother.

I love this product because it is perfect for days when I do not need extra exfoliating BUT apparently it is no longer available which is a shame.

I chose this product to see if it would help reduce hormone splotches on my skin. I haven't used it very much, however, since it is very, very drying to my sensitive skin and makes it redder if I use it too often.

Does this product have any fragrance in it?
A shopper on Jul 29, 2012
Best Answer: If it does, it's so light that I haven't noticed. What I do notice is how clean and vibrant my skin looks after I've used this product. I love the fact that my skin feels so clean and yet not at all dry. Love, love this cleanser.

What are you thinking? This is the best cleanser and you have taken it off the market! Please bring it back!
Glenda P on Feb 15, 2014
Best Answer: Because I could no longer find it on-line, I went to the local store and said the same thing. I was told that the key ingredient that was imported from Japan was no longer available to them and Kiehl's had to sadly stop making this product. But still!!!! Can you make this again? I live this product. I bought as many as I could afford that day... I have only one left.

Is it ok to use with older, dryer skin?
trisha w on Jul 2, 2012
Best Answer: I'm in my early 40's, but play tennis EVERY day in the hot Florida sun so my skin gets dehydrated a lot, but I use this cleanser everyday and it hasn't dried my skin out at all. I do use the Kiehl's Powerful Strength line reducing concentrate and a good moisturizer afterwards though. It's an incredible cleanser, my face feels so clean and bright! I love it.

Since this is exfoliating, is it safe to use with a clarisonic? What are the exfoliating particles made of? Are they rounded particles or jagged?
Elizabeth M on Mar 30, 2012
Best Answer: I don't know what a clarisonic is so I can't answer this. Not sure why Kiehl's asked me to answer. All I know is that I love this exfoliating cleanser. It is not harsh or drying like many I have tried. I can't really feel the particles in it-just a little scrubbing action. My face feels really smooth and soft after I use it. I think if you try it you will really like it.

Hello. I'd just like to ask if you're selling this in the Philippines? Based on the reviews, I feel convinced that the product is effective. I'd like to give it a try, but I would prefer buying it here in my home country.

Is this particular cleanser targeted towards a specific age group? In other words, is this cleanser targeted towards older people? Mid-age?
A shopper on Oct 24, 2012
Best Answer: I'm not sure if it's age specific but I'm 41 and have been using this for a year now. I will never use anything else. It makes your skin look and feel wonderful. It cleanses and exfoliates without drying you out. Hope this helps!
