Rated 5 out of 5 by from SKIP ALL OTHER CLEANSERS AND BUY THIS! This facial cleanser is so effective at cleaning my skin, be it when I wake up in the morning or when I come back after 9 hours of work. With 9 hours, you can imagine the accumulated grime on my face! It leaves my skin feeling soft, super clean and RADIANT. It does not tighten my skin at all, though I suggest you apply your toner and moisturizer as quickly as you can to lock in the "freshness"! The amount of ultra facial oil-free cleanser you get (which is so so much) is worth the amount you pay! After trying so many cleansers to effectively clean my oily/combination skin, this product is for keeps. p.s.I've been using it for slightly more than a month with the Ultra Facial Oil-Free TONER and GEL CREAM. I recommend all three products because they leave my face very well hydrated and without shine for many hours! Never have I felt so good about my skin since my younger days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Skin Has Never Been So Clear! I tried this cleanser because my boyfriend gave me a sample and asked me to try it. Even just using the sample one time I was completely amazed. My Favorite part was that it is such a quick lathering soap and it is so thick! I went out immediately and bought a large bottle to keep in the cabinet. I have been using it for maybe 2 weeks now and I have been so happy with the way my skin has been looking. I am never one to get compliments on my face and just yesterday my friend turned to me and said, "your skin looks amazing. you are practically glowing!" If you have oily skin, I reccomend this cleanser because your skin will never get dried out and at the end of the day you aren't shiny like many other cleansers leave you. My biggest fear is that this cleanser will be discontinued. Im going to stock up now!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing special After reading all of the reviews for this product, I honestly hoped that it would be the miracle for my problematic combination skin that it has been for so many others. Unfortunately, I have been using this cleanser for a month and it has done nothing to help my flakes or my breakouts. The texture is creamy, so it is a little less drying than a foam, but I still need moisturizer afterwards. As with the other reviews, it's true that this cleanser will last a really long time, so that helps to justify the price, but I honestly saw no difference compared to any other cleanser I've tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go-To Everyday Cleanser I have oily skin, and I often struggle with finding a balance between all my products - particularly during those ultra-humid East Coast summers. I'm not a big fan of cleansers made for people with oily skin, as they often work too hard to strip oil away (sacrificing overall skin health in the name of perceived effectiveness# or don't actually do anything at all. This cleanser gently cleans without stripping, is a perfect daily #or twice daily) cleanser, and gets the job done without promising to do anything remarkable. It works better than most products on the market geared towards people with oily skin, and it succeeds in it's simplicity. Those with oily skin should not avoid products that contain oil - that can result in your face producing more oil to compensate. What's good about this product is that it thoroughly cleanses your face without introducing additional oil to your skin. Save the oil for products that should contain a bit: perhaps a moisturizer or an overnight treatment. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really good product I tried this product while looking for anything to take away my shine. I can't go 8 hours without looking like an oil slick. I used the wash at night with my clarisonic micro scrubber thingy, and my skin felt pretty darn good. I used it the following morning without the scrubber, just my hands, and followed it with the oil-free lotion. i applied make-up per usual, and by lunchtime i was still looking oil free. I was pleasantly surprised that from 2 uses i didnt have to re-touch my face powder at lunch. by the time i got home i noticed shine on my nose and forehead, but nothing close to what i usually have had. highly recommend you try it, its a good price for the value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best face wash ever I’ve tried all the drug store and grocery store brands. Then one holiday season my brother gave me the sample pack and I’ve been hooked ever since. It’s so much better and I find while a bit more expensive, it will last much longer because you need to use less for the same result. I’m hooked on Kiehl’s and family will since compliment my skin often- credit goes to Keihls. I use the oil free facial cleanser and anti aging copper cream. I can’t afford the eye cream too, but it works. First time I went to the store I was like really???!!! How much!?? But, every now and then I buy the generic stuff at Target or Rite aid and totally regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cleanser Ever This is one amazing cleanser...it's like a high-powered swiffer for your face. I don't really need to use a toner to get the rest of my makeup off....this cleanser gets the job done and keeps my breakouts at bay. Plus, my face used to get shiny in the T-zone during the day and that stopped as well (I also use the Gel-Cream). I've tried loads of products in all price ranges and nothing remotely compares to the performance of the Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING ! I NEVER write reviews for products I use. But this 1, deserves a round of applause. I've always like Kiehl's products, and this stuff is Great. I Only been using it about a week and my skin has changed dramatically. There is less oil on my face, my skin is clearer, and fresh, Not over dried out. Everyone is noticing. I LOVE THIS STUFF! Its a must have!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from superb facial cleanser for sensitive combination skin with acne Ultra Facial Oil Free Cleanser truly cleans your face without over drying like many oil free cleansers. I have very sensitive combination skin with very oily t-zone and dry every where else. I struggle with mild adult acne, blackheads/whiteheads on my nose & cheeks. Finding the right cleanser that won't irritate/break me out, won't make me oily or won't dry out my skin has been super challenging. This one is the winner. Within 2 days I noticed how clear & clean my face looks. After using the cleanser, I can see all the dirt stuck in my enlarge pores purging out. My skin has improved in 2 days! Also, tiny amount goes a long way. It's lathers quickly. I use the Ultra Facial Oil Free Toner & Moisturizer as well. The toner gives it an extra cleaning, it's calming & moisturizing. The Moisturizer is light, refreshing, and my face feels dewy & moisturized. LOVE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best skin care product I have ever used, hands-down. When I got married, my husband had been using Kiehl's for a long time, and he absolutely swore by it. Having tried numerous other products for many years, I was a bit dubious about what the effectiveness of Kiehl's would be, but I decided to give it a try. I have combination skin, and had never had full-on acne, but I had always broken out a bit during my period & just didn't have the best skin texture. It took a few weeks, but all of a sudden, I looked in the mirror & I realized that my skin was completely clear! Almost, dare I say it, glowing! I've been using this, along with the Ultra Facial Oil Free Toner & Gel Moisturizer, every day for the last five months and I can honestly say that I have consistently had the clearest, best textured skin that I've ever had in my 26 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best facial cleanser for oily skin! This is my favorite facial cleanser. It makes my face feel so clean, and almost that refreshing "tighness" without creating dryness. This is a feeling I personally love; having super oily skin, my face never truly feels clean. Would recommend without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorites! Kiehls, I love you. And I love this cleanser more than any other cleansers in the world! Super great value: You only need a little dab of this, and before you know it, your face is so clean you can feel it! Literally, squeakin' good clean! Everybody is right when they say this doesn't dry out your skin. It removes dirt, oil, light make up from the day, and is so refreshing. I can't wait to wash my face after work because of this cleanser! I highly recommend adding this gentle and effective cleanser into your daily face routine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I touch my face, and this STILL clears up my blackheads without Irritating my skin I don't know about the other people who are thinking about using this product, but my skin is problematic mostly by my jaw line, and one of the reasons that I have had such frequent problems in this area is because I touch my face and I sweat a lot when I work out. I have tried many many brands over the years and this face wash has been the only one that has stopped my breakouts from occuring down in that area. It was also refreshing to notice that I no longer had to use toner on my nose and forehead at the end of day to remove excess oil build up, a problem that frequently occured for me when I used other brands facial clenasers. My skin is noticeably clearer and I now longer feel the little bumps from balckheads now when I touch my face. I absolutely adore ths product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE CLEANSER, BEST EVER I love this cleanser, I have oily tzone, acne proned skin. I'm in my 30's so I have tried lots of brands but this one is just amazing. Cleanses my skin and doesn't leave it tight like most cleanser do. I have been using this product for over 3 weeks and I love it, my skin looks so much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down the most wonderful miracle on this whole planet I rarely write reviews - I shop every single day online but wrote about 2 reviews my whole life. I've tried tons of major brand cleansers (now my shelf is crowded with cleansers) and other products from Kiehls like ultra facial, rare earth, and blue herbal. But I must leave a review for this one - I almost have a bad conscience if I don't write a review to let fellow human beings know what a savior this is to oily skin people. It cleans so thoroughly that not a particle of dirt or grease is left.It keeps my super oily skin in check for a very long time - much longer than any other products I've ever used. After using it for about 15 days my skin looks obviously, yes, obviously, brighter and clearer than my whole life before. This is a life changing experience. I'm not exaggerating - I just wish I had run into it earlier (or Kiehls developed it earlier) so that I might have looked ten time better and found a better boyfriend... Anyway, I can't imagine living without it now. If for any reason Kiehl's has to discontinue it, please notify me and I will stock up 200 bottles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser I have been using this for the last few years and love it! Especially in the summer when my skin, which is normally t-zone oily and dry in other areas has breakouts. This cleanser really does a great job cleaning my face and making it feel so refreshed! I always try to keep an extra one on hand so when I run out, I will always have it. It last a very long time as you only use a small pea size to rub in your hands and then cleanse your face with. I have nothing bad to say about this wonderful cleanser :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY.....a cleanser that really works magic for oily skin!!!! if you have oily skin.....you absolutely HAVE to try this stuff. I have never been impressed with any kind of cleanser in my 20+ adult years of dealing with my oily skin, UNTIL NOW. Wow. Kielhl's you hit a home run....this stuff is AMAZING. Never in my life would I expect a cleanser to change my skin so dramatically. I even started using it on my chest and back. This stuff rocks. Thank you, thank you for such a brilliant product!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the usual Ultra Facial Cleanser I didn't like this product as much as I like the 'original recipe'. After washing my face with the product it feels as if there is a residue left behind. Don't get me wrong it might be great for really 'oily' skins but it doesn't work as well for my normal to oily skin. It also doesn't feel like it 'deep cleans' like the original product either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this line! I have very oily and acne prone skin, even in my late 20's. I went on a trip to NY recently and a friend gave me a sample jar of the ultra facial gel cream. I put it on right away because my skin had been very dry and flaky that week. The next morning I woke up and my skin looked so fresh and smooth - I was amazed! I continued to use the gel cream every night and morning until my sample began to run out, then I ordered the full set. This cleanser is soooo creamy and smooth. You only need a pea size amount to lather your entire face. It lathers so thick it looks like a mask on your face and it feels great! It gets off all of my make up, all dirt and oil build up and my skin feels so clean. I then use the toner and the cotton ball always looks clean because the cleanser leaves nothing behind! I love this whole line so much. I'm surprised that a line for hydration worked so well for my oily skin! I now know that acne products are not for me. I'm sticking with Kiehl's and I can't wait to try some of their other products. I'm buying everyone I know their Christmas gifts from Kiehl's too! LOVE it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will continuously purchase! When I first found kiehls a couple years ago, this line was not out. It seems as if my prayers were answered when they came out with an oil free line. This cleanser does the trick of cleaning deeply, balancing the skin, and not leaving it with that stripped of natural oils feeling. I have purchased this many times and will continue to. PLEASE DON'T EVER DISCONTINUE THIS!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Best cleanser ever. This is the best facial cleanser I've ever used. I have pretty oily skin -- the type that needs to be wiped off around the forehead, nose, and chin several times a day -- and after the first wash with this cleanser, I saw an immediate difference. My skin is noticeably less oily (I would even go so far as to say NOT oily anymore), more balanced, softer, and just looks better in general. The soft foaming lather is also great and luxurious and a little goes a long way, so this product will last a long time. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cleanser I've ever used. This cleanser by far meets my needs and then some. It has been the best cleanser performance and value wise. Not only does it clean deep into my skin and give me that squeaky clean feeling I absolutely love, the price for the amount it lasts is great! I purchased this bottle the summer of 2011 and I am just now running out. This cleanser does everything I need it to do. I have oily skin and very large pores and this just takes all the dirt and impurities out of my face and leaves my skin bright and smooth. I adore this product and will be purchasing another bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I don't need a facial! For some time I was having difficulty with my skin, either it was too dry or extremely oily. For years I was covering my face in products that would strip my skin of its nutrients and leave it worse off than it already was. There was no improvement. Then last fall, when I was visiting friends, one of the guys told my sister and I about this product. His skin was impecable, so I decided to give it a try. I was told Kiehl's had a really good reputation. and what do ya know, I noticed an immediate difference and have been using this product since then. I dont have issues with too dry or too oily skin anymore and don't feel like I need to wash my face 4-6 times a day. I look and feel healthy now. I don't feel like I need some heavy duty facial to drastically change the look of my skin. This face wash is amazing and I would recommend it to anyone. I've even started adopting more products from Kiehl's and can only say good things about them. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best facial cleanser I've ever used ... and I've used several This is the best facial cleanser I've ever used and I've used several well known name brands. I've been using this cleanser consistently for the past 4 months and my skin has never looked better. I use it along with the Ultra Facial Oil Free Toner and Moisturizer to complete the regimen. Fabulous! I recently incorporated additional treatments for my night time regimen. AWESOME! Kiehls Rocks! I'm totally hooked...a Kiehls loyalist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely and Smoothe The first uses yielded big results, then it was more average, but I still love the product. It removes excess oil very well. Looks like it even tightens pores a little bit. I think it has a great value too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear skin! Finally! I have very sensitive, acne prone skin, and have tried EVERYTHING. The Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser is the first product I've used that has improved my skin without drying it out. Upon making another purchase at a Kiehl's store, the sales associate gave me some samples of the Ultra Facial Oil-Free line, and my skin was almost clear within three days! It's an added bonus that these products are all fragrance free!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For Combo too I have combination skin and have never found a cleanser that did not leave parts of my face too dry or too oily. This cleanser does not. My face feel really clean and my t zone is not left feeling oily and the rest of my face is not left feeling dry. You don't need much to get a good lather either. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great face wash for oily skin I've always had issues finding the perfect face wash for my oily skin. This is the only one that really works and I have been using it for several years since I first started.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product Being acne prone, I've tried nearly every face wash out there. This is a great one. I love how it foams and doesn't dry my skin out. Overall, a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glee in a tube. I got a small tube for a sample 2 weeks ago and it still hasn't ran out. I use it twice a day. Once in the morning and then later in the evening. I sometimes use it after gym class, and boy oh boy is it gooooood!! I use this together with the ultra facial oil-free gel cream and my face is literally smoother and softer. This is a miracle for people who have oily acne prone skin because it doesn't dry your skin like turning your face from grapes to raisins. It does remove excess oil and my face managed to look shine free for almost 5 hours. I walked to the restaurant, went to class, walked to another building, and went to another class, and still my face didn't look like a frying pan. All of this from a sample tube!!! Will definitely buy the big one after my sample runs out. And to ya'll who have oily skin. What are you waiting for?! GO AND BUY ONE!!! This is happiness in a tube!
