Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but worth it! I switched over to the facial fuel line and I have noticed great results. This cleanser makes me feel clean but not dry, which most cleansers dry my skin out. I love the refreshing scent, tingle, texture and the blue color of gel that lathers up well. It helps wake me up with the caffeine and menthol, and I look forward to using it everyday. It is expensive, but worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best face wash ever I have tried many before and I love this face wash the best I use it before my daily facial shave. It seems to wake me up quick and sets the mood for my day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, terrible bottle I've used this face wash for years but the bottle is terrible. The last 2 resulting in ~1/2 bottle loss of product. Frustrating and expensive. Please upgrade the bottles!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stop searching, this is it As a person who had been searching for the "perfect cleanser" for years, I realized a few things. Every company is going to have some new ingredient, some new benefit, some fancy way of describing their product... but at the end of the day, you just need a good face wash. It's worth it to spend a little more to get those key ingredients you don't always get in drug store face washes. This cleanser has become the one I stuck with because it has caffeine for aging skin, Vitamin E because that's basically an essential, and it defends against pollution. The menthol wakes you up and wakes your skin up to get rid of dullness. This face wash is simple enough and effective enough that it even had me buying the 1 Liter (which lasts a year might I add). So stop searching, use this. Only thing I wish is that it were a little thicker to really feel it going on your skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! The face wash works great! I use it every morning in the shower! Does not dry out my skin. Kiehls brand has some very nice products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this cleanser! Ok, first I have to admit I am not a man. I received an 8 oz sample in an order about two years ago of this cleanser. Never even noticed it said it was for ‘men’ and used it. I love how it cleans and makes your face feels cool. I didn’t realize until I was ordering it, that it was under the men’s products. Hahaha! Oh well, I’m still using it and love it. I do add Bobbi Brown Buffing Grains for face to it before I use it. Together they exfoliate my face and make it feel clean and cool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Travel size bottle leaks I love this product, I use it daily, but this product is ruined by subpar packaging. The quality of the packaging for the travel-size bottle is extremely low and three different bottles have cracked and leaked. I've tried wrapping a rubber band around the neck of the bottle to prevent it from leaking when traveling but it doesn't help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Old formula better As others reviewers have noted, the old formula was better. This new one doesn’t have the subtle minty scent which I liked very much. Please bring back the old face wash! Also please bring back the old SPF 15 Facial Fuel Face Moisturizer as the new one is too greasy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bottle Keeps Breaking! I absolutely love this product. it is my favorite facial wash BY FAR. But I have bought 3 different travel size bottles and every single time I fly the bottle breaks. Every. Single. Time. I have tried taping the cap shut, putting it in a ziplock bag. It cracks open every time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Travel Size that Doesn't Travel Well Product is great but the bottle/cap design does not hold up in air travel. I have had it leak on two separate flights, meaning I essentially got 2-3 uses out of one bottle since the rest spilled out. I emailed Kiehl's a week or so ago about this but have yet to hear back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Buy for your money I was already a big fan of Kiehl's Facial Fuel Cleanser and to find it in a 1 litre bottle was the ultimate convenience. Using the cleanser twice a day, a bottle will last me well over a year - you can't beat that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great daily cleanser I use this twice a day and it’s a perfect daily cleanser, helps prevent acne. It’s especially nice in the morning, definitely helps you wake up in the morning. 1 8oz bottle lasts me about a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Fav Cleanser I buy the largest bottle Kiehls sells. I find its the best cleaner that I've found so far for my combination skin. I have a beard as well and this soap doesn't dry it out at all. Nice scent and helps we wake up during my morning shower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for sensitive skin! I decided to try this out after seeing it on sale at Nordstrom and I will be trying to return it after 2 weeks of use. I have sensitive oily skin and this stuff dries out my skin so badly and my face becomes extremely oily and shiny after a few hours of using this. I use a good moisturizer and I haven’t had skin this oily in years. I will be switching back to my old face wash because it’s natural and contains A LOT less chemicals. Really disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaky cap Great, effective product. But I too lost half the bottle while traveling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased Been using this for about 6 years and really love it. Virtually eliminated my occasional adult breakout. Wish Kiehl’s would make a 1oz size for those of us that travel very frequently. Hint, HINT!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Just revived today. Immediately I loved the smell and really like that it’s a gel. Felt great. Is a for sure a reorder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beware of Leaking Cap!! Love the face wash but like multiple reviewers have mention already...hate the leaky cap. I also experienced leaking everywhere in my carry on bag. I put the bottle in a sandwich bag whenever I need to travel with it and every time its a total mess. I recommend the product, but switch it to an different bottle for travel purposes. Kind of defeats the purpose since you probably bought this small size bottle for travel. Back to the drawing board on the cap Kiehls!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dry's skin out too much! I love all of the Kiehl's face washes...except this one! I've never used a product that caused my face to dry out completely! After giving it a few weeks, to see if my face would adjust to the product it just continued to cause my dryness. I would definitely not recommend this one, try the Oil Free Cleanser as it's superior to this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New Smell is Horrible I have been using this product for years and love it. However, the last bottle I ordered the product has a much different scent to it than all the others in the past. It smells very chemically and makes this much less enjoyable to use. I recommend Kiehl’s goes back to the old scent if this was a purposeful change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Re: Leaky Bottle I agree with GB13. Great product but the travel sized bottle leaks everywhere during your flight. I had to put it into one of my wife’s old facial cleanser bottles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaky Bottle Have had several of these and they all leak during air travel. Great product, but buying a travel sized version is pretty pointless when it leaks all over your stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Clean Cooling Feel I really live the smell and the cooling sensation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best men’s facial product My friend who is a professional baseball player Introduced me to Kiehl’s and the facial wash .I was amazed how Incredible my skin felt and looked after using . I would not go a day without this and I have tried more expensive and so called “ best “ facial washes . This is the best and hands down nothing compares

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaky 2.5oz bottle not made for air travel The product itself is fine as i have been using this for years. Some changes must have been made during the manufacturing process for the 2.5oz bottle as it leaks on every flight. My entire bottle of facial cleanser completely leaked out after several flights to/from Asia early this year. Now i need to find another leak-proof bottle to hold the facial cleanser for air travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great face wash! I really like the smell and feeling it leaves behind. Well balanced, and refreshing. I am almost addicted to it. I have had other face washes, and its been hard to go back to any of them even tho some of them worked well for me too. This one has never disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh I started out liking this product. it didn't leave my face red, it cleans well, and I had no breakouts. Cons: Does not wash off easily- Other cleansers wash off my clarisonic bristles after a short time (1-2 min) of rinsing and rubbing. This stuff stays on forever, 3+ minutes of rinsing and its still sudsing. Part of washing off. I noticed when I used this cleanser in the morning, I had a bitter chemical taste on my skin/in my beard on my top lip. When I would bring my top lip in when focusing or exerting I would taste it. It tastes nasty- like the bitter fingernail polish but worse. It also has harsh chemicals like propylene glycol (antifreeze) and a muscle relaxant (chlorophnesin). Also I didn't really notice the effects of the caffeine at all. Combined with the chemical residue left on my skin/hair, difficultly completely washing off my brush, and questionable ingredients, I do not feel this is worth the price (though I still wouldn't buy it if it was 70% off). The other Khiel's Ultra Facial Cleanser works just as good for me. The ingredients in that product are still questionable (parabens, sulfates, alcohol), but that product is effective.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing to write home about. I was very excited to try this product, but not enthused with the results. It dried my skin out, even when only using once per day, and following with the moisturizer (which I love). Every product isn't going to work for everyone, so be wary if you have sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Christmas on your face Or whatever you celebrate on December 25 I didn’t know that a cleanser could make me emotional, until I tried facial fuel. Now I hold back tears of joy every time I wash my face because I’m so pleased with this product. Sensation: You sort of have to experience it. It’s sort of like a mild icy-hot/muscle rub minus the regret. Smell: The love child of menthol and happiness. Effect: It makes your skin feel SO clean, without drying it out. I’d especially recommend to anyone with oily skin, male or female, because it keeps your oil production in check.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value This face wash is a great value. I bought the 16 oz with the pump and it will probably last 10 months. One pump is all that is needed for a good lather.
