Age Defender Cleanser is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE So admittedly I am a huge fan of the Rare Earth cleanser....but one day my favorite Kiehl's associate gave me some sample of this to try. I WAS HOOKED! The texture is perfect and the smell is wonderful. Most importantly, it is an effective cleanser. Love the product and am so glad I tried it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deep cleaner Love this product. It does a great job removing dead skin and cleaning my pores. I typically apply it first thing when I get in the shower and leave it on for 3-5 mins then rinse it off. Highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from move over boys! Bought this for my husband who loves it. I tried it myself and now use it once a week to remove flaky skin, Works great with no irritation. I do have sensitive skin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a Great Product I would like to first state that I am a Kiehl’s loyalist and have been a customer since 2001. With that said, I do not like this product. The consistency is too watery to be a masque and it doesn’t have a scrub feeling. I’ve used it as a masque and it’s very difficult to completely wash the product off my face. It’s also very hard to wash it off my face when I use it as a scrub. I usually have perma-stubble and this product doesn’t work well with any facial hair. I usually have to use another Kiehl’s face wash to wash off the reisdue from this product. I do not recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best face wash ever This is without a doubt the best face wash I have ever used. Although like everything with Kiehls it is certainly not cheap but the smallest amount ends up being plenty. This will last a long time. Great texture and nice scent. Not overpowering smell, just a nice clean feeling. One of my favorite products I've found yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of the best products I have ever used. This product leaves my skin matte yet hydrated while cleanses excess oil on my face. Just simply excellent!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love! Fantastic Procud What an amazing product! I use this both as a mask and cleanser. And the results are wonderful! I am so thankful to Kiehls for turning me onto this product! It can be a little messy. But, it's worth it if the outcome is fantastic, right??? :)

Can women use this product as well? What makes it "for men?"

Asked by: Stephanie Cerutti
Yes women can definitely use it! It can be used as a cleanser and a mask. I love the way my skin feels after using it as a mask, but it still works great as a cleanser.

Does this cleanser (Age Defender Cleanser) use plastic microbeads to exfoliate?

Asked by: Jake Barnes
No, there are no plastic beads in it or I wouldn't use it either. It has some sort of crushed seeds and clay to give it the exfoliating effect.

Is this ok for daily use?

Asked by: Anonymous
I've used this daily for two weeks, then cut down to every other day for the past month and half. I see the same results.
