Rated 5 out of 5 by BernadetteLovesBeauty Loving this daily cleanser!
I wasn't sure about this cleanser when I first got it as a sample because I already had a cleanser that worked well for me. It turns out that there was something ten times better out there! I have really dirty, large pores so I need a face wash with some grit. I love how a little goes a long way so it is a great deal for the price. It's gentle but it also has some grit so you can rub the cleanser in your target areas and really get in there. After using it, I immediately felt like my pores looked better. They weren't completely clean of course, but any improvement was a big improvement to me because all the products I've used in the past did nothing to help my pores. I decided to buy the cleanser and the masque and found they work very well together. Overall, I love this product and highly recommend it!! :)
Rated 4 out of 5 by anesthetizer Needs to be a bit grittier
Love this product - especially when it first was introduced - but now it seems there is less "grit" than before and I have seriously tough skin and need more grit to bring out the shine and smoothness.
Otherwise love this product in conjunction with a retinol product combo.
Rated 2 out of 5 by KHewlett Doesn't do much to keep skin clean
Other reviews have said many of the same issues I've found to be true for me as well. It doesn't foam up and the directions aren't kidding when they say to use a generous amount. That wouldn't be an issue if it was effective & not so pricey. My biggest complaint about this cleanser is that it doesn't feel like it's really cleaning my skin. It feels good putting it on your face and I like the exfoliating feeling that feels much less abrasive. But my skin doesn't stay fresh & clean for very long. I don't find it over-drying or over-moisturizing but my skin quickly goes right back to its oily, shiny appearance. Not even halfway through my day I always feel like I need to wash my face again. I'm finishing up my 2nd and now final bottle of this product & then will be switching to the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser.

I'm obsessed with this facial wash/scrub. After only using it a few times I saw a noticeable difference in the tone and clarity of my skin. It minimized my pores and over time has evened out my skin tone and significantly decreased my dark spots! You don't need very much, and the texture is exfoliating without feeling like you're rubbing sandpaper on your face.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JavaJules So fresh and so clean
A few months ago I was I my local Kiehl's picking up my standard Ultra Facial Cleanser, when the sales person suggested I upgrade to the Rare Earth Cleanser. I was hesitant to switch, as I've been happily using UFC for nearly 5 years. I've struggled with cleansers being too harsh, having dry skin.
I was pleasantly surprised that REC cleanses without drying my skin. I now use it every day. I love the slightly gritty texture. It gently exfoliates and my skin feels so refreshed afterwards!

I am 50+ years old and have very fair skin. I moisturize a lot during the winter and developed acne. Using the Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser I was able to remove the acne. Yeah! It works!
Rated 5 out of 5 by kiehls4min Can't live without this one
I'm 37, Asian, live in a tropical country (so always exposed to heat, constantly sweating) and I've always had problematic skin, I can't remember a time when I've gone blemish-free for longer than a week. My face is oily and I have big pores, so I always have blackheads, white heads, pimples somewhere on my face at any given time. But since I started using this twice or thrice a week depending on how much my face is exposed to dust, smoke and the elements, my face has significantly cleared up! I still have the occasional zit or two on the chin or jawline (hormonal) but nowhere near as much as before and whenever i use the cleanser, the next day I could feel they pretty much are on their way to drying up. But it doesn't dry my face as a whole. I wish it was cheaper, but a little bit goes a long way anyway. I've been using it for over 6 months now and plan to use it for as long as I can.

I think this is a good product and definitely lives up to the normal Kiehl's quality, but I wouldn't recommend this for use on an every day basis. You are only supposed to exfoliate twice a week, and this product is definitely an exfoliant. I'm thinking about adding into my routine as my regular exfoliant, but I need to use up some other products I have first.
